That's an implied 5.65% annual return. Fairly reasonable IMO. Much more reasonable than pension funds assuming 7% every year. However remember that in 20 years inflation will eat away at that. If you assume 2% annual inflation (probably fair over 20 years even if a little high now) then a dollar will only be worth 2/3rds as much in 2037 than it is today. So you have 3x as much money but only 2x as much buying power. The moral of the story is that if you want to both manage money over your remaining life and make sure money-grubbing heirs don't get their filthy hands on it, you have to go the Leaving Las Vegas route and do a lot of hookers, booze, and blow to manage your bankroll and lifespan simultaneously.

The next MinneapolisCon is going to be epic, even though Dong set a high bar for shenanigans last year.

Stalin did a lot of things, but he didn't double post.

Libertarians go on and on about how they're "the real liberals". In any event, they are both politics that represent the commercial interests in one way or another.

In closing, I liked your Stalin thread bettah.

Why thank you! I realize it has gone dormant.

With Noriega dying, is Panama the most random country we've invaded in our lifetime? I guess Grenada was probably a bit more odd but I don't really remember that at all.

Grenada is the obvious choice, given that we sent half of the army to rescue some med school dropouts. Somalia though? Most of the country couldn't find it on a map at the time, still not sure why we invaded. Panama at least has a certain degree of geopolitical importance, controlling the Pacific-to-Atlantic shipping artery.

Agree with Cheese on Grenada as the correct choice. Somalia was one of the big first failed states. I think other countries were there first, and it felt like we should do something. We weren't really invested doe. A few U.S. Soldiers die and we were out.
