One of my buddies makes the best BBQ 'coon around. He used to take it to church potlucks, and most folks thought it was chicken.

I've eaten a lot of deep-fried gator......and boiled crawfish, jambalaya, gumbo, etouffée, and my favorite (which I had Friday for supper) red beans & rice! It's nice having a Cajun restaurant a few miles away.
He is a good neighbor if he cleans the turtle for you. Hard to skin

I suggested to the local grocery store that they should sponsor a goose roundup (retention ponds): people could pay a small fee to catch the geese; local folks could pay to set up booths/tents where they would offer plucking/gutting/cooking services.

This would provide food to people, provide money to local entrepreneurs, and get rid of some of those #$%^ geese.

Great idea--they could use the same system to cull the deer too. And the feathers and leathers would be a secondary market--low-cost pillows and purses for everyone as long as the depression lasts.

Bloomberg just said defaults on insured mortgages rose 38% in February.

More pressure on you now. Need to get it sold so you can get your sailboat and enjoy it for a few years.

no pressure on me; i'd need a buyer to put pressure on me. that sailboat is going over the horizon all on it's own. think my best case scenerio now is sell out and vagabond while living very below my means for two years. rebuy a cheapo beach house or apt while i still maintain a homestead advantage just when daytona bottoms out. rent a room to cover costs, travel on the cheap five or 6 months/year for three/four years until the cruising kitty builds up again. that should put me back on my pre-bubble track, you know, that bubble that popped right before the depression hit.

so if the depression hits in five years (i assume it is ok that i'm market timing the depression) i'll collect what i can from the beach house squatters while i'm fishing for preprepared tofu dishes as i sail off the coast of southeast asia. that's my plan and i'm sticking to it.

Gold, guns, and freeze dryed food(7 yrs worth).

All these posts and no - Psssst Wellesley! Come on folks get serious - that actually worked for me last time around.

Still have the 10% interest in that patented gold mine in Colorado - we couldn't con er I mean convince the Boy Scouts to buy as a camping area.

The timberland/evil Spotted Owls became vacation plots - the last sold in 2005. I don't think I even kept up with inflation.

Never did buy 7yrs of food but some of the backpackers meals that came out were pretty good.

heh heh heh - . To do over again with hindsight - hey psst Wellesley works for me or Wellington in the accumulation phase or balanced index plus a tad commodities(ala PCRIX type), a small dose foreign bond fund if availible.

Of course if you are bad to the bone - 4th edition of Ben Graham's Intelligent Investor was written in 1972 - a tome I never mastered.

One more time - with hindsight Psst Wellesley and putz around the edges. .

Tin foil hat

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

(Redirected from Tin-foil hat)
Jump to: navigation, search

A tin foil hat in profile.


A tin foil hat is a piece of headgear made from one or more sheets of tin foil, aluminium foil or similar material. In theory, people wear the hats in the belief that they act to shield the brain from such influences as electromagnetic fields, or against alien interference, mind control and mind reading.
The idea of wearing a tin foil hat for protection from such threats has become a popular stereotype and term of derision. The phrase serves as a byword for paranoia and is often used to characterize conspiracy theorists.

All this talk of a Depression is getting very depressing.

Look at it this way if everyone was saying Hey things are so good buy stocks buy real estate then you would know bad things were coming. At least now you got something to look forward too
