Re: What do you prefer?

I'm torn. This is not the OT. But, given that this involves my two favorite WoW, I should probably come clean and confess that I'm part amaretto chocolate mousse. Hehe.  Well: 1) This is nothing compared to the spam that has popped up around here recently. Particularly a series posted in multiple f...

Re: What do you prefer?

But I will say that I have a recipe for Amaretto Chocolate Mousse that would have both of us licking the silver off the spoons to get that last tiny bite.   https://www.thespruceeats.com/thmb/skCkAMihwv6wM4LZS84qkfqH3i4=/450x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GettyImages-57042550-5...

Re: What do you prefer?

Is that a Venchi chocolate in your mouth, or are you just happy to see me?

Re: How to safeguard my research

Hello Amin, I just noticed your recent posts in the last few days. I have been taking an extended break from the Forum, but wanted to say hello. On the research concern - I think your work is very well documented here and also on SSRN, so you have a clear record of publication with time stamps and a...

Re: norway

Is my assertion that in the town of Oslo with its phenomenal long-legged blondes I can safely roam around jazz/rock/metal clubs alone in the evenings correct? Listen, I will take a sisterly interest here and you may spit in my eye, but that's ok.  ; ) On the humorous side, if men flirt with you and...

Re: Arbitrage when risk-free portfolio earns less than riskless portfolio

Life is short and there are many interesting things to see and do. For some, leaving is about branching out and seeing what else there is on offer. Not some kind of insecurity or ego issue. : ) Enjoy your day, and remember what Herbert said in Dune: "And what do you despise? By this you are truly kn...

Re: Arbitrage when risk-free portfolio earns less than riskless portfolio

Indeed, duly noted and corrected in the previous post as well. (If someone called me frack-star, crackstar, of hackstar, that would be fine, but not correct.) :D Enjoy the Blue Tits and good to see you here. One of the best things about my groundhogs, chubby as they are, is when I come home in my ca...

Re: Arbitrage when risk-free portfolio earns less than riskless portfolio

frolloos is great, as are all of the others who are seeking life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness elsewhere. I guess it comes down to what building and nurturing a Community means to each of us. Extreme natural diversity (Blue Tits, lavender honey tea, and all) or some kind of cold AI-driven dyst...

A theme song for Fall 2019.  High fidelity (just the way I like it) and the light show is out of this world.

This is more of a topic for the OT, but let's provide some highlights that have direct relevance to the current state of affairs around here: 1) Indeed ppauper is AWOL and has been for a few months.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Thanks - just a cameo appearance today but liked that airport quote so much I had to share it here. :D On the census, many moving parts and interesting to see the apparatus at work. One thing you may consider though - even if the printed version of the census questionnaire *that gets mailed to indiv...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Given current events and political debates I feel there should be more of a pulse to this subject but cannot find it.. Found this recently - maybe us...
