I have a friend that is a CPA do my taxes for me. He charges me $100 to enter the K-1 form. After I messed up the entry a few years ago, it is worth what he charges.
That is exactly what I mean! Does this give you joy? I really feel sorry for you if that gives you your whoopies?
How much profit have you made on you investments the last year? I made over 11%, even with my losses in oil.
What would you suggest I invest in?
I am rolling more of my investments into QQQ and VTI.
What are you doing with your life?
I am studying how the debate at Catholic Church council at Carthage in the year 418 between Augustine, Bishop of the church in Hippo in North Africa , and Pelagius, the monk from England, has affected the various views on Economics because of the differing views in the Christian Church on the Old Testament teachings. I am also teaching on the fourth chapter of the Book of Philippians.
Get a life!!!
Are you suffering from such a lack of self-esteem that you have to ruin the lives of everybody else?
Look what I said on 2/19 - "revisionist history". It was the cause of a CBR wreck down near Pensacola. .
Another possibility came up. Steel is a crystalline structure, alternate freezing and thawing can lead to the rail flexing, leading ultimately to fracturing. The showed up in the past in railheads at bolted joints.
This is what keeps the Sperry Rail Services in business, sending ultrasound signals through the rails, looking for hiddens cracks.
I was told that the growing season in the area a few miles to the east of the wreck is equivalent to Hudson's Bay in Canada because of elevation; I checked and it t is almost true. Having been along the Kanawha river in May that area is very cold compared to a few miles west of there. I can see where there could be added stress to the rail.
Figure this out - how much longer will it take to haul by ship from Shanghai to Miami or Savannah? How much longer will it take to load and unload the newer larger ship. Add rail travel time from LA to Nashville versus Savannah to Nashville (also consider travel time by truck).
Figure in days.
Assume what each container contains about $1 million value of components) in transit will cost $10,000 a day for either the insurance because of the value of the Work in Process inventory or opportunity cost.
My ball park figure is that it will take 10 days longer, A container a day means that it will mean. that the Widget manufacturer is tying up $100,000 to go via Savannah and via rail, ($90,000 by truck from Savannah, with nothing to show for it.
Google - "CSX Curfew" and bring up the PDF. You will see lines out of service for up to 12 hours a day for 4 days a week for up to 9 weeks to replace ties, rails and/or ballast.. This is what slows down trains.
