    I lurk enough to know that I would never invest in Schmoopy's store.

    Add it to your other investments. If that's all you have to invest, play it safe. CD or something else with no risk.

    Or you could just go to Vegas and put it all on black. :dontknow:

    Really low. But is it 10k you really don't need to worry about? If you want to put some at risk, I would still at least put half of it in something with a guaranteed return.

    5 or 6 grand in an IRA would be your best start.

    I don't mind the risk. I said 10K because I can lose it without worry. I like the gamble.

    Depends on if you want short or long term investing but I will give you the best advice ever on investing.......don't take anyone's advice from a message board. Read. Study. Make your own choice because 10 people will give you ten different pieces of advice and in this market they are probably all wrong.

    You could always buy SFN and spend the remaining $9,500 on blow and hookers.
