I have found that ETFs that track the indices beat any of the best investors every year, and you don't even have to pay all the management fees. Vanguard has two cheap ones with VOO and VOOG, that have beat neart every ace Wal Street Trader every year. Takes the guess work out of it on your larger investments and you can still dabble with some other money if you'd like.

Fuckin' A. I will be the last one laughing.


Funny thing is, my Grandmother used to garden, and can the produce from it. She had a cellar full of canned stuff. She was really good at, too, her stuff was well-preserved. Then late one night, my Uncle came home drunk as a Lord, put some stuff on the stove to cook, then passed out. My Grandma and Uncle both escaped the resulting fire (thank God), but only with the clothes on their back. The house burned to the ground. They lost everything, including all those canned goods.

The point of my sad, but true story is shit happens, and the best-laid plans of mice and men are sometimes for naught. And if you're cooking, don't fall asleep drunk.

This is good advice. Simple, but hard to beat over the long haul. Well done.
