I thought the term was emptying out assets.

You take the oatmeal, add water (and some rains, nuts, Splenda if you wish) and let it sit and be happy for about a half hour. I derived a great deal of pleasure from it and now am set for life. It is much more convenient to buy a big oatmeal cannister than those boxes of cereal.

So now if we're talking function over form, nothing quite packs the punch that Kathy's Mix does (you make it yourself with the following ingredients):
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon prune juice
1 tablespoon wheat germ
1 tablespoon applesauce.
Eat that once a day and after 2-3 days, you're right as rain! Has this thread devolved or what?

...Note that this subforum has a much lower threshold for locking or removing posts than the financial and investing subforums. In general, controversial, offensive, pointless, divisive or mean-spirited posts or topics may be locked, edited or deleted (with or without notice) at the discretion of the moderating staff even if they do not otherwise violate forum policies.
Moderators or site admins may lock a topic (set it so no more replies may be added) when a violation of posting policy has occurred. Occasionally, even if there are no overt violations of posting policy, a topic (or thread) will reach a point where the information content of the discussion has been essentially exhausted and further replies are much more likely to cause distress to the community than add anything of value.
