  • "The few hundred SAND I have being down 25% isn't something I'm thinking about, but I do realize the posters here who dislike me don't have much else to pick at."

    Aww... isn't it a bit presumptuous to assume I have any feelings for you either way? "Pick at"? Do I need to set the contest of our discussion every post, so you don't go off on some victimization tangent? The SAND purchase was a play on gold because your chart told you that POG was gong up. Hit a Fib point, remember? You might not be "thinking about" your SAND buy, but you should agree that a 25% loss in 2 weeks is a freakin' disaster in kind if not in quantity. Of course that would take a little more personal integrity than to play: "A victim of people who don't like me!" Sob, sob.

    Jeeez! How pathetic!

  • You are right, it ain't no investment, it's gambling pure and simple. I can't remember anyone losing so much money so fast since the Wizard of Ahs lost 35K in one bet!

    Why can't you admit you blew it? Losing 25% of one's capital in less than two weeks? That's NOT a disaster? Ridiculous. I take no pleasure in your losses, but hope at least you will stop telling others how to "make money" in the market.

    Hello! We were talking about a science background and your qualifications to address the subject. And no I didn't spend time fighting hunger in East Africa, I fought it in Bozeman, MT.

    I had to laugh at your "success" of keeping your mind free from rigors of academia, and realistic understanding as well.

    I see you are confused as usual, the paper wasn't patented. The paper was published in a professional entomology journal and the organic chemical we discovered and identified was applied for a patent by the university, or so I was lead to believe. It doesn't matter what the research was for, the point is that unlike yourself who pretends to know all, see all, I actually have a degree in science, and actually have done scientific research at an university research field station. So you can wear your armchair lab coat all you want when you thunder, "IGNORE THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN!"

    LOL What a phony.

    Sure Tim, I'm retired. But you are mistaken if you think I expound " the virtues of RBY". Apparently you missed it but most of the time I've been accused of being a basher!

    But your scorn and sarcasm tells me all I need to know about you.

    Wolfgangreen Your SAND buy is down 13%

    by bogfit Oct 30, 2014 3:04 AM

    I'm sorry I think you are getting away from the basis of my inquiry. You once recommended that I should use your "system". You and Stevie said that somewhere around 1192 was an important signal and I asked, what action did you take upon receiving that information. You told me you bot. SAND @ $4.01, and what I am trying to determine is if that "signal" misled you into a more than 20% loss in little more than a week. What or how you try to repair the damage is immaterial to the "buy signal" you got a week ago. The fact is you have 20% less capital in your SAND asset, and apparently you bot. it because a chart told you to.

    I don't think I'd buy much on your chart's advice.

    "If that's not enough, then you are free to remain disappointed with, and skeptical of, the quality of my attempts to practice the method."

    Well that's certainly enough for Prof. Marbles to be sure, but for most of us with a real science background, we had to complete at least a 4 year program of instruction at an accredited college to be awarded a degree. And funny thing, I seem to recall reading quite a few books on "science", as well as on several other disciplines as well in earning that degree. You are not the only person who has read a book, just one of a very few who think having done so makes you an expert.

    My own work in fighting hunger in East Africa was funded by the National Science Foundation, and along with my two co-authors our research was presented at the annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America, published in professional journals, and patented by Montana State University. So forgive me if I remain "disappointed" with your library records.

    It is not your illogical attempts to pass off total nonsense often by masking it with smoke and mirrors, that I find so offensive, but your insistence that, to quote yourself, "science requires one to have some humility...", when at the same time your own hubris knows no bounds.

    " science requires one to have some humility and agree to follow the facts where they lead ..."

    If only you would take your own words to heart, but pray tell us how you came to be a spokesman for science in the first place. Degrees, colleges, papers and awards. Forget whatever layman's views you might have on the subject, but like everything else you have a desire to pretend you know everything. (a bit wordy, but back at ya') LOL

    Of course we know your credentials - none at all! No science degree, no research fellowship, no papers. Opinion? OMG YES! Mucho opinion! Prof. Marbles even glazes into his crystal ball to opine his own mining vocabulary, speaking in tongues while creating new words that no one else has ever heard of, and proclaims that only he alone can know the unknowable, the eventual average grade of ore in a deposit far below the surface of the ground. Just him alone! Amazing, but that's why they call him the Amazing Professor Marbles!

    You mistake me for Sewell, he has the high horse, well actually a little pony. In fact I don't own a horse at all. Either you don't understand investing or are remarkably confused about gaming. Do I need to qualify that with "intelligent, responsible" investing just in case you also consider throwing darts at stock lists as investing? Or is it you just have no idea of what's dropping a coin in a slot machine or tossing a chip on a roulette table is all about.

    The difference between responsible company due diligence and hoping for bet on futures, which is no more than covering either black or red, you win or you lose, apparently is beyond your comprehension. Go back to you pencils and paper - your triggered buy of SAND is up today, but you're still 6.5% down. Are you planning to average down, and for how far and how long. Or do you have a plan at all and are just making things up as you go along?

    "What investment isn't a gamble? By definition, all investors are gamblers."

    Actually your inability to discern a difference between gamblers and investors is no surprise, it was the underlying fallacy that caused you to blow $30 grand on that reckless option bet. You have always considered gambling and investing to be the same thing. They are not.

    "Want me to explain what production grade is again? Given the way the English language works, it's exactly what one would think it would be; i.e., the grade per tonne at which production occurs"

    No, I want you to explain "production grade" just once. The closest I can come to understanding the nonsense you scribble is the grade or concentration of gold in dore bars, since that is what mines produce, you know, "at which production occurs". If you don't mean "out the door and on the way to the bank" as "at which production occurs", then at what stage of ore processing do you think that "production" occurs. Is production the ore raised to the surface? Is production the grade of ore input to the mill? Is it the grade stacked on the pad? Is it the grade of metal that is recovered from the pregnant solution? Because if you think they are all the same it just shows how little you really know about gold mining.

    As usual you include strange ideas that have no basis in science nor fact. It's just plain nonsense, and you know it. So dance my little fellow, dance away with your delusions and defeats into oblivion.

    I've been around gamblers all my life here in Nevada so I didn't mind him throwing his money away, that's entirely his business. But when he insulted my judgment for pointing out his mistaken ideas, he made a big mistake. I asked for an apology after he was shown to be wrong, but he refused and thereby lost his only opportunity for redemption. His ruin is entirely of his own design.

    " I sure hope it's warmer than that day we went to the springs."

    Ah, you wienee, you sat half out of the water most of the time as I remember. LOL Just remember my friend that in the long run we're all dead. I retired at 57 and haven't regretted it a bit. Besides you've got the collector coins to keep you busy, even if opportunities in gold seem a long time ago. Hope your health holds until you can stretch out on some beach somewhere and soak up the rays!

    Sounds like you're working too hard. Gotta take time to stop and smell the dead fish!

    My daughter the Hollywood photographer is flying in next week and we're planning a drive down to Markelville to soak in the hot springs and hopefully photograph the aspen gold in the passes. I called the Deli to see when they would be closing for the season, and it's the NEXT DAY. It will be the first time I've been back. Will think of you when sitting in the water glazing up at the tall Sierra pines swaying in the crisp mountain breeze. Oh give me a home, where the buffalo ... LOL

    Sure, it's a pattern I call the Blue Sky Suckerfish. Works best with a lot of hype and agitation. Whenever it starts to sink, simply jerk the line until you can just see it near breaking the surface, before it sinks again.

  • What I want to know is why are these "state's rights", "small government", "local control" Republican politicians demanding the resignation of the CDC's director, and expressing a concern about a Texas hospital failing to properly respond to their Ebola patient? Texas Republicans have addressed the abortion issue by closing over have the clinics in the state, but how well do they supervise and regulate hospitals in that state? Not too good by appearances.

    Oh that's right, the Texas Board of Health is responsible to a REPUBLICAN governor. Of course the governor doesn't have sole responsibility, "The Office of the Attorney General protects Texans as consumers of health care." too.

    BTW - Republicans cut the CDC's budget and filibustered the nominate for Surgeon General for over a year. But what does that matter? Small gov't until you need it.
