    good for you man. did you have a big sell-off within the last three months? im not so interested in the bonds, but what sectors of stock market have you done well with if you don't mind? props on getting barreled too. I wish some others would take some time to educate, research, invest (take some risk), and benefit the markets/hopefully with positive returns LOL. this country needs it! 17 trillion in debt and people think investors are evil hahah. I don't want to become like most of Europe (except Germany).

    A barrel, cask, or tun is a hollow cylindrical container, traditionally made of wooden staves bound by wooden or metal hoops. Traditionally, the barrel was a standard size of measure referring to a set capacity or weight of a given commodity. For example, in the UK a barrel of beer refers to a quantity of 36 imperial gallons. Wine was shipped in barrels of 119 litres (31 US gal). A small barrel is called a keg.

    Modern wooden barrels for wine-making are either made of French common oak (Quercus robur) and white oak (Quercus petraea) or from American white oak (Quercus alba) and have typically these standard sizes: "Bordeaux type" 225 litres (59 US gal) and "Cognac type" 300 litres (79 US gal). Modern barrels and casks can also be made of aluminum, stainless steel, and different types of plastic, such as HDPE.

    Someone who makes barrels is called a "barrel maker" or cooper. Barrels are only one type of cooperage. Other types include, but are not limited to: buckets, tubs, butter churns, hogsheads, firkins, kegs, kilderkins, tierces, rundlets, puncheons, pipes, tuns, butts, pins, and breakers.

    Barrels have a variety of uses, including storage of liquids such as water and oil, fermenting wine, arrack and sake, and maturing beverages such as wine, cognac, armagnac, sherry, port, whiskey and beer.

    Caught my best barrell to date today. First at the home break. Best overall I've been in as well. Was short-lived, yet excellent. Came down the line with a solid frontside bottom turn after a fast drop and was in the lower midline still in a bit of a stance when I saw that the local housing authority had given me temporary shelter. So I stood upright, knowing what was next. Waited my time, which was only a couple seconds, until the lip and face knocked me over. Wasn't gonna brace myself and waste previous green room time thinking about the consequence. That would not be living in the present. I then got spun underwater with a beaming, frothy smile as I laughed maniacally to the surface. Now I want more.

    solidly bigger up here than forecasted...so where are the complainers saying the session wasn't what was forecasted!?!? easily 6-8 ft (not 3-5)...but we don't tend to get barrells at my spots, just big and mushy + wind was cross making a lot of sections...still, once out past the break, adrenaline going on a day like today........

    i dream of barrells & getting slotted, and not just slicing up the face...one day
