RIP John Bogle……..the man who did more for the middle class than any government ever could.

Here’s a little known and shocking fact about Jack Bogle. In 1960 he wrote an article for Financial Analyst Journal, under a pseudonym, where he argued that managed mutual funds were better than funds based on an index. At that time he was in the business of managed mutual funds. This is before he was fired from running Wellington, and well before he formed Vanguard in 1974.

He believed the individual shareholders should own the company (Vanguard), not himself, and structured it that way. He could have easily been a billionaire many times over.

Great video. I’ve been doing a variation of this for years. I consider my variation a little easier and it requires no tools…can be done in a liquor store parking lot.

Instead of pounding the cork in, I take it out by just slamming my palm on the bottom of the bottle. You don’t have to do it very hard. Little by little it comes out. Halfway out, just wiggle it out with your hand. 30 seconds max.

Putting the cork in and replacing the seal are exactly the same.

Also a handy method if you just plain forget your bottle opener somewhere.

My aunt just empties a scope bottle etc. then puts vodka back in with some food coloring

The Father of Index funds dies at the age of 89. That man has the voice of a 40 year old. His legacy is saving millions of people money from the fees, broker charge for the same exact service, they charge by cutting out the middle man.

Tip on cruise ship liquor smuggling: in your first port of call, head into the duty free shop or a local liquor store and buy your favorite bottle of spirits. Simply walk back on board with it and pass it through security. Rarely do they confiscate it, and if they do you just get it back at the end of the cruise and there are no other consequences.

Or if you want to work a little harder, pour the liquor into a water bottle or juice bottle while in port, then simply walk back through security. We always take a bookbag full of water bottles to have fluids to drink while exploring in port, and I can’t recall ever having my water bottles closely inspected while re-entering the ship at the end of a port visit.

This method is more helpful if you’re on a cruise line that doesn’t allow you to carry a bottle of wine on board (like MSC Cruises). You do have to remain dry till that first port of call though!

And while we’re talking cheap ways to get drunk on a cruise, I’ve found 3 all-you-can-drink opportunities on most ships:

1. Cruise Critic Meet n Mingle – go to their forum and find the roll call for your cruise ship and date and sign up for the meet n mingle. You also get to meet the captain and other high level officers and they bring you fancy drinks and appetizers. YMMV though – I think Carnival and MSC have these nice meet n mingles but the one on Princess didn’t have free drinks. They usually hold the meet n mingle in the morning of the first sea day, so I hope you enjoy getting your 10 am drunk on!

2. Captain’s cocktail – usually around 5 pm for 1 hr in the bars surrounding the Atrium area (in the lower decks). On one of the formal nights. No need to dress up though, just go down to the bars and it’s free drinks for an hour. YMMV on selection and whether it’s fully open bar or only champagne.

3. Welcome back reception for past cruisers – YMMV on this too but on MSC it’s all you can drink. Champagne and often 1-2 other cocktail options. Evening time on the other formal night IIRC.

Cheers!

YouTube analytics at its weirdest, ya know what I’m sayin’?

That video was posted over a year ago. Socialblade says his total video views have increased 10x over the last two days.

Why do you suggest the MO AG not taking legal action against TPM is ‘probably the right outcome”?

Anyone else concerned about buying wine at a store now? The dude just showed how you could completely replace the contents of the bottle with another liquid while showing no tampering. For the wrong people you wouldn’t need to do the whole bottle….

Guess its just like MS — the same actions for “good” are what bad people can do to cause trouble…

CM

Yeah, I missed the introductory speech, and I’m, like, WTF is the guy doing?! Is he stealing some expensive wine from an honours bar in the room, or what?!

Personally, I don’t drink, and all these tricks just to get drunk on a cruise seem very silly to me.
