Looks terribleVirtual sex is going to be insane and insanely dangerous. My friend does VR game development and showed me some prototype stuff of one those typical sword and sorcery style games but in VR. It started out all very normal like go kill the dragon, but then Red Sonja look alike shows up to join our quest and I'm like what dragon? Remember when they made that mod of Laura Croft running around in her underwear? Like that except 4k hyper realistic graphics as close as you want to get with full eye tracking technology. So yeah 1B subscribers for $200/month seems about right.
Mid-year check of the 401k and hey, what do you know, year to date am down less than the S&P 500 (which is down around 20% for year to date).
Hopefully the last 6 months of auto-buy ins every two weeks pays off when I need to start taking $ from this in 5-10 yrs.

Yep, and it’s already started. $100 meal for 2, counter service edition.IMO I don't think there is any way around the cost of labor issue with restaurants, especially in high cost of living areas. There is only so much labor you can price into a plate of food before people stop eating out, except for the occasional nice meal out or special occasion. Unless you only serve business travelers and other high dollar clientele who don't care.
Aside from your "white tablecloth" restaurants, I could see most traditional table service restaurants going the way of QR codes with mobile ordering and food runners who bring everything to your table. We are already seeing this starting to happen. Which is fine, however I see more places stuck in the awkward middle where you have to stand in line to order and if you want another beer or a salt shaker (don't get me started on salt being removed from tables), you have to stand back in line again. If you are going to make that switch, go all the way.
I stopped eating out at the beginning of covid. No desire to eat out any more unless it is special occasion. If I am going to be out drinking I eat at home before I go. And have something already ready to heat up for when I get home. I did go have sushi Friday night with Geo. Cruised the boardwalk on bikes. He had a basket with vodka and mixers, ice etc. His bar on wheels. It was good to see him. He is doing pretty good.Yep, and it’s already started. $100 meal for 2, counter service edition.
There’s a place in SF that uses a robot to make your burger. No cooks needed on payroll either.
eating out is a waste right now - chitty service, hidden fees and long waits. I think a lot of restaurants will go belly up aside from business meeting clientele.
It's no different than trading anything else really and all same rules apply. You need a good plan, solid risk management, ability to learn from your mistakes, and lots of patience. I occasionally trade Forex on OANDA and Think Or Swim from TD.Whats everyones thoughts on trading Forex?

I loaded up on a semiconductor ETF (SOHQ, I think) in my non-employer Roth IRA at the recent dip and now it’s one of the few I DCA into regularly. Has a decent % NVDA.
