None that I was dumb enough to buy into, i.e. 401K or KEOGE plans. Look at Arlo, as an example. He grew rich off the arts, but he didn't follow his dad's footsteps. Woody had the grass roots approach. Poke his head in a shop that needed a sign lettered. I did that till the vinyl machines made everyone an artist. Now I'm a landlord. That will eventually fail, so I'm planning ahead to self sufficiency diversified. In the end, those who rely on money will fail.

On a different note: No, Heraculis, you are not a bad communicator. You write a lot like Arlo's dad. If you wrote a grass roots book like "Bound for Glory" as an example, I could be a friend and help you self publish it. The trick to making anything work these days is simple: Don't scam anyone. Be genuine. You'll find followers that way.

Anyone listening on this station...the 401k option I got has been a sweet deal (maybe not as sweet as it could have been due to the great credit fiasco, but) and If you get the option I would take advantage of it if I were you!

How will you access it when the grid goes down? Don't think the grid will go down? Good luck with that mindset.

The difference between "Wow! Will you look at that, Ethyl...?" and experiencing "Boom! Boom! Out go the lights!"

I think that depends on the price of tea in China.

I'm reasonably certain the price of tea in China will have no effect on the return of India's collapsed power grid.

Surprisingly enough, (might be wrong on this, but) it seems the only candidate concerned about India's turmoil is the incumbant.
