By skeptic on What Are Stocks?
@Nick Mikail@twitter, respectfully, the distinction that you make between price and value is artificial. Think about MTM accounting - the only value that a security has at a given point in time is what you could sell it for at that point in time. @ghechr, although dividend levels are somewhat sticky (as corporate boards are loathe to reduce dividends in times of distress due to the significant negative perception impact) in the long run payout levels increase as profits increase, ceteris paribus. This is even more true for certain regulated corporate structures, such as REITs, that have payout requirements. This is an interesting article and a step in the right direction, everyone should learn some personal finance basics in high school and hopefully we can avoid another generation buying storage units full of shit they don't need on borrowed money.
I don't know if comments like mine are just completely beating a dead horse but that salad you describe would be incredibly easy and quick to make at home. You could eat it with your book on your fire escape, roof, or front stoop, or in the park. And for the price of one of those beers at a restaurant you're well on your way to a six pack. I guess my point is I think you can fulfill a lot of your impulses in ways that will still bring you pleasure, but in an affordable way.
Good god, Mike Dang. Please print new business cards that say "Professional Morale Booster" because you are that. Even though you were talking to Logan, your words regarding self respect bolstered a universe of 20-somethings. You are my favorite part of the internet. /fangirlgush
