Loc: Some random location
Here's a Motley Fool's recent article about 3D printers. Pretty cool devices. Looks like "The Fifth Element" movie's technology coming to life.

My family and everyone I knew growing up and even now, thinks financial matters should be hushed and kept secret. I never knew or learned anything about financial matters. Ever. Finance seemed like such a BORING subject that I never planned for any kind of retirement. As a kid it was drilled into my head, "Jesus will be coming back before you need retirement, so don't worry about it." Well, my folks died, and they left nothing to me or my siblings. Or rather, everything was left to my brother who's in a nursing home and won't, and can't make any decisions concerning this matter, with the state of Missouri as his guardian, who is no help in the matter.

So, given my experience on this subject, I think people should be more open and educated in the matter. How else is anyone going to learn and be able to base their financial standing amongst other human beings. From what I've heard, most retiring Americans have less than $50k when entering retirement. To me, that's just proof that keeping things secret is going to end up ruining peoples lives and the country they live in.

I agree that finance's shouldn't be a secret. Also, most people 30 years old or younger have less than 10,000$ in savings.. I didn't discuss the $$ amounts, because that can cause problems if people know how much $ you have, or don't have.... This was an issue that i did not want to deal with.


Like i said, i was more than happy to share with people, several people were able to make a pretty good amount of money.... When i bought Apple, a lot of the guys i worked with would give me a hard time about it... which was ok with me, because the price was going up just about every day... If they would have bought some, they could have made some cash as well..

Oh... that kind of stock.

I gave up on stock-picking in the conventional sense, moved what was left of my RRSP onto a fairly conservative couch-potato-type strategy, and invested in one of these in green with a black spiderweb finish :

I've been very happy with it so far.

True. It's not like Axiom sells anything that could be used as a weapon...
