    Needs to be said... sell the DAMN motorcycle.

    HOT! RANT 
    If you ride a motorbike long enough you will almost certainly have a life altering injury. In a typical summer weekend I see more mangled motorcycle riders than car crash victims. That in spite of the fact that there are over 20x more cars on the road than bikes. There are enough other...

    Hyperinflation starting? What's happening in your area? Post your ground reports.

    HOT! INVESTING 
    The government numbers have been a lie since the 1980's. The problem is that the government started using inflation measurements to create a target, which results in the metric being manipulated so the number gives the target the government wants. This is called Goodhart's Law. Goodhart's...

    The thing I am most worried about at the moment is the implosion of the USD as the reserve currency. Pulling Russia out of smart may have felt emotionally good to some, but we are creating a bifurcated world with multipolar currency systems. The only thing that kept the USD value up was having...

    There are two parts, one is home storage, the other is like a welfare program. You need to be a church member to get the free welfare assistance. If you are buying home storage stuff you can just show up and buy it. They have locations in many major cities. Yes, you can just show up and...

    I grew up Mormon, who are the master peepers. They have a store that anyone can go to and buy bulk items for cheap. These are raw ingredients but come on metal cans that last upto 30 years. https://providentliving.churchofjesuschrist.org/food-storage/home-storage-center-locations-map?lang=eng

    2022 State Tax Rankings... Time for You to Move?

    HOT! TAXES | REGS 
    The risk of an income tax being imposed in Nevada is low. This is because it is currently unconstitutional. Article 10: "No income tax shall be levied upon the wages or personal income of natural persons." I have property in both Nevada and Arizona, and will be moving my home state to Nevada...

    Tips for Getting Started on Upwork in 2022 & Beyond...

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    Lex's write up is spot on, really great content. I'll add my $0.02 here about my experience on upwork. A little background for relevance, to date we have done nearly a million dollars of work on upwork directly. We have done many additional follow up projects and referral projects outside of...

    Most people test positive for covid for 8-14 days after symptoms first started. This is with the antigen test. People can test positive for upwards of 90 days with PCR. A positive test doesn’t mean you are infectious or sick still, it means there are detectable proteins (antigen) or RNA (PCR)...

    Would be interested to hear your take on what sound money would be? Some commodity backed system like gold/silver, some public ledger that can not be expanded or expanded at a fixed rate like bitcoin? Politicians of both stripes are POS imo, and over time they will always screw anything up to...

    Made my first 100k per month at 23 years old, now what?

    GOLD! HOT! REAL ESTATE 
    Study, learn, and understand how taxes work in relation to real estate and business in general. You should be an expert in how to protect yourself from the most viscous barbarian of all. From my experience you usually have to manage your accountant, because you know your business inside and...

    Fighting CV19: Please send thoughts and well wishes to Greg B (Runum)

    HOT! 
    Reading how things have unfolded, you likely already had cytokine storm, which it sounds like you are hopefully improving from. Given your history, it sounds like you had the initial viral illness, and when you started to improve, the actual viral replication phase was probably ramping down...

    In lieu of a long write up, let me just post a link from the medical literature that is pretty exhaustive on this topic. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8509048/

    Fighting CV19: Please send thoughts and well wishes to Greg B (Runum)

    HOT! 
    @Runum very sorry to hear about your condition. Unfortunately in my opinion the medical profession has largely failed patients due to factors that are pretty obvious to people in the field. Patients really have to advocate for themselves, which really is a tragedy. Since you are in in the...

    A doctor in doubt about the profession...

    NOTABLE! INTRO 
    Although I don't really discuss it much on this board, but I am an MD. Up until COVID I never really discussed my medical background here at all, but during the early days especially I was involved in many different discussions here. I also have been fortunate to personally know MJ as well as...

    The fed has backed itself into a corner. Unlike when Paul Vollcker was fed chair and raised the interest rate to double digits to fight inflation, the fed today cannot do that without forcing the US government into a severe debt squeeze - which could lead to default. The difference is the...

    What do you think about a vegan shoes brand for Men

    These exist already, look at vivobarefoot (great shoes BTW). Question is if people care about them being vegan (I don't) as opposed to having zero rise natural posture (which I do) or some other style or design feature. https://www.vivobarefoot.com/us/collections/vegan-shoes Not all their...

    Fed Up With Your Country? Where Is Left to Go?

    HOT! 
    You can get a permanent residency without ever getting a temporary residency. But you have to do it from outside the country. You schedule an appointment at a consulate, for instance in phoenix. If approved they will put a sticker on your passport. Then you go to Mexico within the next...

    The extent of the problem may may not be as bad, but the dynamics of how and why the problem of increasing money supply, and velocity of money rapidly expanding leads to uncontrollable hyperinflation is the same, it is universal, and it is consistent regardless of all the facts on the periphery...

    Inflation is impacted by two primary things. The quantity of liquid capital in the market, and the velocity of money. It is the velocity that you really have to watch. What is velocity, it is how quickly money changes hands. As inflation increases, people start to lose faith in the ability...
