Seeking a viable pre-retirement investment strategy …

Twitter even allows you to convey complex if slightly tongue-in-cheek ideas, but possibly only to people who bother to follow the links:

Can one do a TAFE course to learn this language (if one can be bothered)?

Don’t worry Ken, men often go through a mid-life crisis before reaching old age. You’ll get over it.

I’m oscillating between the red sports car delusion and the lawn bowls reality.

There is something karmic about seeing an academic being burdened with a character limit given their propensity for burdening students with word limits.

Ah yes, the retirement investment strategy with (the now) horizon period of a day trader and everything correlated 1:1.

The funniest thing I read for a while was Nic’s comment of about a week ago about all those “clairvoyants” on the ECED thread predicting gloom and doom.

Honestly, if you have a time horizon longer than a week even in real estate you’re a long term investor.

And speaking of criticism from unlikely quarters – how is this about Noam Chomsky. I would have thought such a bottom up kind of guy would welcome the populist and participatory possibilities for information sorting that Twitter opens up. But apparently no.

Now that you mention it I’m surprised Ferrari haven’t already come out with a merchandised set of red lawn bowls. I presume we will see the new kit this Christmas.

A word limit is a blessing. It forces a student not to stray too far from the bleedin’ obvious into far flung territories that may well be interesting – even relevant, but are time consuming when ‘time is of the essence’.
