Investing Lessons from the Dude. “Or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you’re not into the whole brevity thing.”
One of the most fun personal finance articles you will ever see. Of course it helps if you are familiar with the classic “The Big Lebowski” movie! I haven’t laughed and nodded my head so much recently. Oh, it has some GREAT investing lessons too. Must read. You are welcome.
1.The Dude: “Sooner or later you are going to have to face the fact that you’re a moron.”
2. The Dude: “It’s like what Lenin said… you look for the person who will benefit.”
3. The Dude: “You brought the f***in’ Pomeranian bowling?”
4. The Dude: “Sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes… well, he eats you”
5. The Dude: “Ya well that’s just like, you’re opinion man.”
6. The Dude: “Look, pal, there never was any money. The Big Lebowski gave me an empty briefcase, so take it up with him, man.”
7. The Dude: “By the way, do you think that you could give me that $20,000 in cash? My concern is, and I have to, uh, check with my accountant, that this might bump me into a higher, uh, tax…”
8. The Dude: “So if you could just write me my check for ten percent of a half a million… five grand… I’ll go out and mingle.”
9. The Dude: “This is very complicated…. You know, a lotta ins, a lotta outs, lotta what-have-yous.”
10. The Dude: “And, you know, he’s got emotional problems, man.”
11. The Dude: “I’m sorry, I wasn’t listening.”
12. The Dude: “I can’t be worrying about that shit. Life goes on, man.” “The Dude abides.”
Not sure about you, but for my next gig I would not mind to be an orgasm researcher lol. Actually, this is a very serious article. I am all for science and learning more about such important things! NOT Fake News! Enjoy this read, here are just a few excerpts:
Her focus: sex as a way to promote general health—as a treatment for depression, chronic pain, sleep disorders, even arthritis. Someday, Prause says, doctors could prescribe masturbation. “Natural, free, accessible—what more do you want from your health care?” she asks me.
Translate this to the bedroom and you see why a woman climaxes more easily when she’s relaxed—and why planning your fantasy team helps you forestall the inevitable. In her case, she can more easily shut off those parts of her brain; in yours, they’re being prompted to light up. The gateway to orgasm is in letting go.
Well, at press time, this thing was close to
$13,000 $15,000. This is an FAQ about what it is, in case you were wondering. I am sure you must have heard about it by now. I do NOT recommend buying it…what the hell do I know anyway? 🙂
It takes great courage to write an article about how you (and your mother) were conned. The author spills it all out and it provides great lessons in alerting you how pervasive and hurtful these mother phucker scammers are. And how they take advantage of laws in plain sight to rob people blind. The author pleads with you to take action to hold these phuckers accountable. We need to change the laws so these guys can be thrown in jail where they belong. PLEASE:
It is time for good men and women in this profession to unite to do something, and I can tell you what it is: We must call on Congress to extend the statute of limitations on financial crime. If you decide to take action and voice your concern, simply cite Title 18, Section 3282 of the United States Code. As the law stands today, it motivates the criminal and makes the vulnerable (the elderly and unsuspecting) all the more vulnerable. This is an evil we should not and need not tolerate any further.
…This is a change in our laws that is long overdue and it is lawmakers’ responsibility to ensure that the laws reflect our modern realities. If you want to voice your concern directly to the Senate Judiciary Committee, you can do so directly by contacting Richard_DiZinno@judiciary-rep.senate.gov.
Dear reader, I hope none of you, your family, or your clients will ever have to endure such an experience as my mother has. I have laid my heart bare in this story, and now from that same heart, I have a request. On behalf of all those who have suffered at the hands of fraudsters, will you help me do whatever is necessary to correct this overdue injustice? Let us call on our lawmakers to pass a law protecting the victim instead of insulating the criminal.
As the blog troll has called me a “whiny loser punk” for blogging about stuff like this and not doing repeated “XX reasons I love the CSP card” and “Look at me taking a shower in First Class flying for free on a trip worth $73,000 and you can do it tooooo”….no wonder he would like to remind you that it is all about personal responsibility *&^%#$%!
Amazing infographic, another one The Visual Capitalist.
And I leave you with this…Goes well with The Dude bwahahaha.
