    It’s amazing how the same simple chemical bonds in things like willow bark (asprin) and even a amino acid could do such amazing things. “Vitamin” D is also really neat, mostly because “scientists”...

    No idea. We know more about space than the deep ocean and that’s not much. We know very little about the brain or consciousness, it’s probably better that we don’t. Look up CAS9 protein and CRISPR,...

    It’s regularly by definition if it’s once per week. It’s just not enough frequency to be of much benefit in terms of muscular development, strength, aesthetics, or overall health. I could see keeping...

    LWW was talking about rolling, and I’m only guessing he means like down a hill on the ground.

    Yeah I’ve known a few who the condition made it really hard on their families/caregivers. Definitely...

    True that. Glad to see you are able to get back to training. Sounded like a helluva injury. I just got our bikes ready for the summer, but we usually stick to trails. I hate being on my bike on the...

    Yeah horrible disease, it’s not good for the relatives of the person that’s for sure. That said, my wife’s grandma had it toward the end of her life and seemed happy as a clam. She was also blind as...

    Yep agree. I look at my house as a place to live that will end up reducing cost of living overall with value increases offsetting interest paid. I could afford more house, and would like more square...
  • I think both are good. Need somewhere to live,...

    I think both are good. Need somewhere to live, good areas usually appreciate. That said I’m in a good area with good schools and high taxes (modest house) and got killed buying my house in 06 before...

    I’d continue getting the max match in the 401k, but also work on buying house soon since Mtg rates are stupid cheap. Debt is another good inflationary hedge. If you plan on being in the area for...

    Yep my “plan” is pretty much from “ Bogglheads guide to investing” book. Some of the principal in the two Roth IRAs might need to be used for my kids college, but I’ll avoid that if I can.

    I started being more aggressive in 08 I think (additional pension saving). It’s crazy how fast it builds after a decade or so of putting in decent money. Aside from a few bad years, my non-pension...

    Currently at $120k, but highly likely getting a decent promotion in just a couple weeks. That position currently tops out at $170k, but will increase with annual COLA increases for the next 14 years...

    I’ve noticed an increase in younger females actually training. Not many doing pull-ups, but a lot of them do actually lift rather than just weird floor exercises or rolling around on a balance ball....
