I mean, I think it can be forever, and that would be really awesome. It just kind of drives me crazy when people break up or whatever, or a friendship ends, and people say "oh, s/he must never have really loved me/you."
yes but fund managers are not the only players involved.
I just thought to go see Milk in [origin]. Of course, it is not playing anywhere there.
I definitely agree that that sentiment is absurd, even if enduring love is pretty cool stuff.ION, this foundation that once funded part of my salary (in addition to much more important things) is closing because of Madoff. Assuming you had plenty of money and you had gotten too-good-to-be-true returns from a Madoff investment (and withdrawn), would you feel a moral obligation to donate to the non-profits affected by Madoff's scheme? I know forensic accounting can get complicated, but I imagine you could figure out, essentially, how much you put in, how much you withdrew, what similar (legit) funds would have yielded at the time, etc.My parents and I are going to see Milk on Christmas! Too bad you're not going to be primarily geographically deceptively misdescriptive!
I'm sorry, Matthies. That's awful.
I'm sickIn related news, dry heaving is worse than actual vomiting, I've decided.
