Re: Space X Starlink Internet

We got it a few months ago and love it. It may cost $100 a month but being able to tell CenturyLink to stick it was priceless.

Very interesting Robert, thanks for the explanation. That's pretty eye opening regarding the drop in returns if you use AGG versus T-bills. Here's another question, what duration of T-bills does he use in the book? I can't remember what he specifically said and I've loaned my book to my dad. Thanks!
