Never had a waffle ice cream taco before.... it looks very messy.... how do you eat such a thing?

The same way anyone eats any kind of taco...  It's bliss.  Just dont' settle for the mass-market freezer-section pre-wrapped POC. A good waffle ice cream taco should have the waffle-taco made on-site within a few hours.  It's bascially the same as a waffle-cone, but in a different format.

I've only ever had the mass-produced one -- the Chaco Taco.  I had no idea this was available as a freshly-made waffle cone-like thing... going to have to find one when the weather warms up!

i've eaten those str8 off the line - 1000000x better than anything in the store.  the shell is still crunchy.  as well as magnum ice cream bars much better off the line - the carmel is still gooey in the triple layer carmel ones.

the top is in - i've divested from everything except my ice cream company shares - b/c with global warming they are going to start sky rocketing.

I'd prefer to go with a bacon terminology

"Boy, this market is really getting crispy!"


That bacon slice has multiple tops, but no discernable upward or downward trend. Definitely a sideways slice with multiple tops.

Studies show itís better to lump-sum into bacon, if you have that option available to you.

Roughly 80% of the time the result is (wait for it...)... more bacon!

I know itís an unpopular opinion around here, but yíall should consider adding a little cheese to your portfolio.  Yeah, technically all bacon will maximize the total amount of bacon consumed over your lifetime, but it doesnít account for the increased chance that sometimes you will run out of bacon completely.  Iíd rather have a little bacon everyday than a ton of bacon when I die

Clearly a bubble and very irresponsible advice. Sure, the cheese is great technology but there are so many cheeses available it just doesn't make sense right now.

Yeah, lump sum on average gets you more bacon, but the spread of possible outcomes is wider than if you dollar cost average. There is no such thing as totally free bacon, there is always a price to pay, somewhere.

Adding some cheese to your Bacon is ok, as long as you are following your IBS (Ingesting Bacon Statement).

Today's update: the dow was up about 300 points this morning, then faceplanted and ended the day down 7.

So I guess that was the top, then?

I predict this is the start of a significant correction, then the bull will resume.

Or, this is a flash crash and the bull will resume in a day or two.

Not so fast.  I called top at 9:35am.  It then took me 20 minutes to get all my accounts out to cash.  Top was in at 10:00am.  I beat Thorstach at their own game.

As a regular gambler in the stock market I get given lots of stuff.

  - I get lots of invites to parties, especially parties hosted by real estate agents (iíve Never known one who wasnít smiling), and

  -I get offered all sorts of discounts on stuff. I just need to wire some money to some guy and he will give me the deal of the decade.

All awesome perks of being a regular gambler.
