We are baaaaack with the regular Buzzy posts you have come to expect here catching you up with the Best around the blogosphere while going into holiday mode now…
MilesCards ponders if United Platinum Status is worth it vs. Gold Franky, if you are not a road warrior because your job dictates it, spending extra to make the higher level status is idiotic. But hey, this is just MY opinion. Things have changed you know.
The Free-quent Flyer shares his Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond tier match experience. Unbelievably, it appears there are still variations going on! This is NOT the way to run promotions, Hyatt has left a very sour taste for all, somebody take them out (please no Marriott or Accor, enough!). Useless prediction for 2016: IHG will take them out.
The Ultimate Movie Theater Discount Hacking Guide. Excellent post at Money Metagame.
In this episode of FUEL, we head to new heights following professional rock climber Alex Honnold, whose jaw-dropping, free-solo climbs (no ropes) have cemented him as one of the most revered and respected climbers in the world. Absolutely breath taking video of this phenomenon. Every time I see his stuff I think next time I will have the word RIP in the same sentence! Thanks to TBB reader harvson3 for bringing this to my attention. I am a fan!
This is out of left field but it just made a heck of an impression at me. And it is my blog so here it is: “Why has the world stockpiled enough cotton for 127 billion T-shirts?“. It is China…holy crap, that is a heck of a lot of cotton…just…sitting…there!
The Dangers of Being Focused. Fantastic short piece at Pragmatic Capitalism! Especially loved this: “…one thing is consistent across the rise and fall of market gurus. If they’re not properly diversified they often live by concentrated risk and die by concentrated risk. Given the dynamism of risk and the cyclical nature of the financial markets, this shows why it can be very dangerous to get too hung up on one guru’s ideas.”

Broadband speeds by country. Dang you Comcast…
And I leave you with this…
