A virtual non-issue for me, as I do not use Twitter and likely never will.

Why? Do you think Umby is seriously asking for help? He just said:

Quote:
@Umby18: Thanks everyone for following and getting me to 8,000 followers today, let's get to 9,000 by training camp!
Let's not take ourselves too seriously, right? For all the people that tweet the dumbest things about their pants not fitting or their toothpaste sucks, you gotta single out this as some kind of unacceptable comment? lol.

I'd feel the same, only the "call for help" was the creation of the OP, not Umby.

That tweet sounds like its in jest, but in all seriousness it is pretty egocentric and stupid to want 9,000 people following you around on twitter.

Perish the thought! I've named her Lucy and she's too classy for flame decals!

One of my male co-workers bought a PT Cruiser with the flames on it ... he told us to check out his "ghost flames" ... my response was: "Oh, it's flamin' alright"

...he didn't find it very funny.

My aunt absolutely loves her PTCruiser. 'Course, she's 86 and it's only the third car she's ever owned! Her first and favorite was a first-generation Corvair!

Flames aren't as essential as fuzzy dice, though.
Pimp it up.

I guarantee you I have the only 2003 Ford Escape in the entire state of Washington that has Blue Jackets garb all over it.

It's a rare piece ... I designed it myself

Wanted to buy gold as a wee lad (2005) with my savings, dad wouldn't let me.

I called yesterday to let him know I'm putting him in a home : P

I actually did pick up some LNKD when it dropped under $80 since it had been bouncing around $100 before the debt crap.

APPL is actually still undervalued at this point too.

The GLD I bought in March is performing well.

The problem with all this is that I only have like a grand at a time to invest, and that is such chump change in the grand scheme of it all. At this point it is all the wife is allotting me to get my feet wet and learn how this mess works.
