Invested cash into Jumping Stilts
« on: May 13, 2014, 01:42:49 AM »
I've bought a bulk inventory of jumping stilts and if I can keep my expenses down and sell most of them, I'll make a good return.  In other words, I've invested cash into my business.  Do you think jumping stilts futures are trending or foolish?

This isnt even that funny of a joke to be honest.

No kidding. Haven't you seen the latest polls on blogger sentiment towards jumping stilts? They are trending very bearish.

Disclosure: Short jumping stilts

I'd obviously be more worried about the liability involved in selling such items.

Who yelled at you, and what did they say?  I remember some questioning the validity of that measurement, which is what made wtjb's post funny.  :D

Back on topic, it's an interesting question.

I'm personally big into real estate as a path for FIRE, so unless you can somehow convert them from jumping stilts to house stilts, I'd vote no.



Disclosure: long houses, but not stilt houses, or longhouses, for that matter.
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and are now settled with three kids.

Thanks for at least considering the question :)
