    Bro, the point is that just because bad people can do bad things to you no matter what, that doesn't mean you should willingly invite them to your home. A determined thief can break my windows, that doesn't mean I should leave my front door open.

    ^^^ Yeah. Sure, someone could just try to brute-force themselves inside a house (from "personal experiences", a rail tie is a great way to do so when multiple people are trying to break in), but that creates too much noise and attention. Criminals would much rather get in and out quietly, which is easy to do when they're invited into their target's home.

    It's also a waste of time to be dead.

    Eh, some of us don't have life insurance though ;)

    It's fine if you're comfortable with letting people in your home; it's your house and your life, do as you please. I just personally don't want to. Live and let live, I suppose.

    if your healthy it is one of the best ways to invest...quickly bought up a ton right after a bad injury before all my medical stuff hit the system so i could still get whole life/30 year convertible term on the cheap. At my rate I have to pay ~1,000-1,200 a year for 100,000 whole life with a 10 year pay. so ~12k gets me 100,000 plus it earns dividends each year. So if i die at 80-90 years old 100k will be 200k for a mere 12k investment :) (24 right now btw) best investment when your young. I'll have ~800-1 mil in whole life when i am done converting and hitting mile markets when i can at 50k due to my GIR. Which means i'll have 1.6-2mil when i die if i make it to 80-90 years old or whatever. When I finish my major and finish converting than I can move to stocks/bonds/land.

    land is another great investment....buy buy buy :p

    I have once. When I was selling a huge fish tank. Other than that, nope. Just use good judgement and never be the only one home. Have some friends over at the time of the meeting if you live alone. If the item is compact or easy to travel with, then there is no reason to have someone meet at your place or vice versa.

    I've done plenty of transactions from Craigslist. Mostly buying and trading.
