eCig MarketWhat's everyones take on the eCig market and related companies? Especially with companies like mCig and their subsidiary VitaCig. I made a small investment in MCIG today b/c I was introduced to their VitaCig product this past Saturday and I loved it. I'm not a smoker, but this thing was awesome. No... 10 months 3 days
Need a currency trader's opinion....Fidelity has recently expanded their offerings of converting dollars to foreign currency and I think this might be a good time to go risk on - particularly if the numbers in the US stay strong and people start diversifying out of the dollar. Either way, I think it's a good startegy to have some non... 3 years 3 months
FacebookI'm really curious about everyone's OBJECTIVE opinion on facebook. Yes, we all know the hype and bullshit and this, that and the other. Every financial website is flooded with news since the announcement yesterday and it looks as though many reporters are jumping on the "stay away" bandwagon. I... 3 years 3 months

How would single currencies be reinstated to...Can anyone explain how the banks would go about reinstating and recapitalizing the individual currencies that make up the Euro. Not that I believe they will break up the currency, but I'm just curious of how they would go about the procedure. I'm assuming there would also be winners and losers?... 3 years 7 months

I can see all the greeks, volume, OI, etc on my optionshouse screen, but I'd like to see the real-time changes as trading goes on. 3 years 7 months
Some Trading Rules to Live By....As I've been reevaluating performance thus far this year and figuring out what I've done that has worked, and not worked, I decided to revisit a list of principles I started about four years ago when I got serious with trading.

Airport horror storiesI was "refused entry" to the UK and they asked me to leave the country. No joke. I shouldn't say much else. 9 months 4 weeks
The US Education System and Why We're BehindI think the other problem besides the fact that the pay is the biggest deterrant for teachers is that our education system is geared for the SLOWEST kid in the classroom. I think this is the biggest thing that has to be changed. I used to get in trouble all the time in grade school because I... 2 years 9 months
How I used LinkedIn to get Interviews and Land...This is a great post and shuld be used as a good guideline for prospective recruits. I'm going to add my two cents on the attach resume thing. I view it as this: attach the resume and ask for what you want, diplomatically. Don't cold email someone and ask for a job, but I don't think asking for... 3 years 2 days
Are You a Psychopath?[quote=Edmundo Braverman]Interesting. I scored a 22 on the narcissist quiz, which makes me a narcissist but just barely. I was kinda surprised by that, because I expected the score to be higher. I guess life humbles everyone as they get older. The thing I scored highest on was Authority (7.0) and... 3 years 2 months
Are You a Psychopath?I've had someone tell me this as well. They also used words such as sociopath, autistic, OCD and bipolar. ADHD was the only clinical thing when I was a kid.

How many women is too many?[quote=mb666]That's a decent amount of $ to go out 5 nights a week. Are you in NY? I hope you're keeping it to simple bars. Somehow I manage to drop $40 in a few hours even if I go to a semi dive-bar. But yea I understand the math. That's just a lot of p*ssy. (I've been in a multi-year... 3 years 3 months
How many women is too many?[quote=mb666][quote=etherlord]Here is another one for you: 80% of the people in this thread lied their ass off, and 20% did not (by optimistic estimates). Top 20% in general population is 15+ partners. 100+ is probably top 0.1%, but in this thread it's around 50%.[/quote] I like these numbers... 3 years 3 months
How Would You Invest $1 Million?I agree with the above for the most part. I made my first real estate purchase of a building in Brooklyn and it is a cash cow. I would not, however, invest in buying personal real estate here in NYC. I would suggest an index fund, some currencies, muni bonds and a few individual stocks like... 3 years 3 months
