That's a really good point.

Still using the Samsung 55" 4k. It is the equivalent of 4x27" 1080p without the bezels.

Will downsize to 40-43" 4k for next screen. Hopefully 120hz.

2019: been doing 2x weights and 1x running each week. So far, so good.

Dras.. yes have been back on the bike a few times for short rides. Was fun but cold. Waiting for (warm) Spring before I go out again.

Some theorize that too much indexing will cause exploitable inefficiencies. The more people index, the better chance pickers have to beat them.

Here's one from John Bogle, of all people.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/john-bogle-has-a-warning-for-index-fund-investors-2017-06-01

"The market is not entirely owned by indexers, of course, and it never will be, and Bogle pointed out that as indexing increases to a certain point, it opens opportunities for active investors to exploit inefficiencies in the pricing of some stocks. But past that point, wherever it might be somewhere beyond 75%, in his view the market could become a dangerous place."

I heard a prediction they'll use their data to selectively offer insurance products. Health, auto, home, etc.

Carl's Jr spent years marketing giant beef burgers to men. How is this going to work?

Good ideas, littleman.

>put your ego in check
So very true. Had to reset expectations and start with bar-only bench presses. I'm only up to 65lbs (ugh). Failed many attempts at pull-ups, but now doing short sets. Progress. If necessary, I'll go kicking and screaming to an expensive PT/normal gym and work on isolation machines before returning to compound movements.
