Let’s Go Exploring! The Land of a Thousand Smiles Part 4 (The last one I promise)

This is part 4 of our series on Thailand. Click here for part 1, part 2, and part 3. Weird thoughts race through your head when you’re 6 feet under… Under water, that is. Thoughts like: “Why the HELL did I sign up for this?” “Oh God, is that my life flashing before my eyes?” “Screw you! I don’t want to die!” while clawing at the instructors face as he’s trying to flood your mask. I read about all these experiences and more before signing up for the Open Water Diver certification. Apparently, unless you are a strong swimmer (I’m not), […]

What I Learned Thinking I Was Going to Die

A few weeks ago, FIRECracker wrote about a potential health scare involving me, and I thought I’d give you all an update on what’s going on. This whole thing started, as most bad things start, at a bar. A buddy of mine met up with us, and he’s been in and out of hospitals lately due to complications following an accident. He’s recovering nicely, but the point is he’s had a lot of doctors poking at him lately, and one of the conditions they tested him on was a thing called Marfan’s Syndrome. This is a genetic condition (though it […]

Financial Independence for the Military

Fun Fact: For some reason we actually have a fairly sizeable readership on this weird little blog from the Military. Specifically, the US Military. I have a sneaking suspicion that the fact we have “Revolution” in the title, there’s a lot of red on this site, and our site’s logo is a raised fist might have inadvertently put us on some CIA database. That…would not be so good. But hey, free traffic is free traffic! Financial Independence is a topic that we approach mostly from a civilian perspective (since that’s what we’re most familiar with) but over time and talking to our military […]

Let’s Go Exploring! The Land of a Thousand Smiles Part 3

This is Part 3 of our posts on Thailand. Click here for Part 1 and 2. Before coming to Thailand, the only thing I knew about its famous islands was from Leornardo Dicapio’s “The Beach”: If you’ve never seen that movie, it basically has 2 claims to fame. 1) Leo runs around half-naked throughout the movie and 2) it was filmed on the island of Koh Phi Phi (pronounced “gaw Pee Pee”). So when Wanderer asked me which of the Thai islands we should visit, “half-naked Leo + Pee Pee” was the first thing that popped into my head. And […]

Investment Workshop 16: Withdrawing From Your Portfolio Part 2

Hello again and welcome back to the Millennial Revolution Investment Workshop! New readers, please click here to start from the beginning. So after the enthusiastic reaction to our last post about Withdrawing from our portfolio, I thought I might tackle a few of the follow-up questions we got from that, both from comments and over email. How does your Yield change as the stock market fluctuates? Generally, when you make a purchase your yield, as a dollar amount, becomes fixed. For example, if you buy a bond or a preferred share yielding $5 a unit, and your purchase price per unit […]
