living and dying are, in a sense, of equal value
In the long run, I've heard many times that it's better to invest and keep money there rather than day trade. Day trading really screws around with the market because it creates fluctuations of unpredictability. Me, personally, I once invested $1000 in a mutual fund a long time agao and doubled that money in a year. Last year, I invest about $1,000 in Whole Foods Market and have made approximately 60% on top of that just from dividends and the worth of the stock. I've got a bunch of bond market stock and a socially responsible business bond fund in my retirement portfolio. Everything except for the Whole Foods Market stock isn't doing remarkably well, but the Bonds will probably come in handy when the economy gets worse because the worth of bonds is affected by the national interest rate, but it all depends on the interest rate in effect when you buy the bond because bonds have a fixed rate interest on them. It's some interesting stuff, but in the long run, I personally believe that long term investing can be much more profitable than day trading if you pick the right companies in which to invest, which all boils down to a company in which you have faith and believe will provide a good service and will turn out good profit. Hope that helps!

You did not, I repeat, did not _FIND_ a terrific place to eat last night. You were dragged too it after considerable whining. Confess your untruth, infidel.

I didn't whine that much about it Biyotch, and immediately confessed its goodness.

Nice attempt to rewrite the accusation. I did not say anything about you _confessing_ its goodness. I said, confess that you did not find the place. Damn whitey, you always _finding_ shit that other people have sunk a hook in your nose and lead you to.

You're such a whiner. To placate your extreme (yet carefully plotted) whinage, I'll change the phrasing from "Found a new" to "Found out about a ". However, I believe that the phrasings are essentially identical, the latter being slightly more whine-resistant. "Found" is a flexible word which, by itself, does not preclude something being handed to one on a silver platter, as it were, rather than being the result of a purposeful search or an accidental stumbling over.

Your "sunk a hook in your nose and lead you to" is an excessively graphic phrasing given how apt it isn't. Thanks for that, biyotch.

Forces of Pendantry, arise and do my bidding:
<br>1. To come upon, often by accident, meet with.
<br>2. To come upon or discover by searching or making an effort.
<br>3. To discover or ascertain through observation, experience, or study.
<br>8. To obtain or acquire by effort.

All of these imply that the effort was put forth in the majority by the subject of _find_.  In this case, it clearly was not. You were shown, you "found out about", you were informed of and directed to. (BTW, thanks for the change to found out, it is less whine inducing.)
Of course, all of this over a word is a bit much. At least I wasn't the first to resort to swear words. :) See you next week.

curses, foiled again by poorly formatted html. The forces of pedantry must retreat to their dark fortress of solitude....

Your very "pen-name" is as much of a swear word as "biyotch".

And so, jerky, I think my experience matches definition 3 enough for you to have a nice big steaming cup of shut it.
