1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I wonder how much additional capital gains tax was taken in this year due to the scare of raising the rate.

    Is that even a thing? :confused: I don't see why anyone would want to do that -- but for those who need to do that? No se.



    A lot.

    Yes, that is a thing. I believe it has very little to do with wanting to.

    And all I have this year is a capital loss on a passive investment which I cannot claim due to being over the AGI phase out. :(

    Why so much turnover? That's an easy way to lose an astounding amount of money over an investing "career."

    skinny is correct. it is a very real thing, and its something you are made to do, not something you opt to do. when your tax liability gets to around 6 figures, i understand that is how it goes. or so i am told by the people i know who make that kind of cheddah.

    I didn't really expect it to be so frigid outside.

    Yes, and vice versa.

    All my investment decisions are event-driven, so I rarely care about timing my sales for tax purposes. Granted, I was considering selling AAPL at the end of the year to offset my tax liability, but alas, I was too scared to pull the trigger and seal in those losses, so now I have a huge tax liability and massive paper losses.. FAIL.

    :(


    Ah, makes sense.

    No, but apparently it smells like an authentic wood fire. The leftette told me this while standing in front of our wood burning fireplace.

    :laugh: that is awesome.

    Thursday my beautiful 1995 mercury cougar took a shit on me. The lower ball joint blew on driver's side front wheel. Wheel was barely connected. Luckily I was at a stop sign when it happened and not actually moving. Also, luckily I bought it for $500 to have a shit beater car and not put any excess wear and tear on the nicer car. Still frustrating.

    I was at a party last night and tried to do the Harlem Shake. I thought I did pretty well compared to the other attendees but I overheard this cute redhead tell her friend the boy in tight pants (me, I'm guessing) looked like a "spastic drunk idiot". I am not kidding when I say that I wanted to cry.
