    Talk to a financial advisor. Warren Buffet said in an op-ed to buy stocks now, so I'd suggest a mutual fund. Then, just leave it there for 40 years, then retire.
    I am terrified of the stock market and know jack all when it comes to economics.

    So uh, I'll probably just trust you on this?
    You're in your twenties, so what you're looking for is a small-cap fund of some sort. You want something high-risk, high-growth.
    Not 100% though. Hedge it with 80/20 smallcap/large cap. (Or swap large caps out with something stable, like municipal bonds.)

    I'd also consider plopping your money into index funds if you trust the market over money managers. Then you won't have to worry about those extra fees and turnover charges eating away at your returns.
    No, you just have to worry about the expenses for buying and selling stocks to keep all the percentages right.

    And there's no reason for an 80/20 split with large-cap stocks on something that you're not going to be able to touch until you're in your mid-sixties. While there is no such thing as a sure thing, it's about as close to a sure thing as you can get.

    Sure, see my edit for more clarification. I'm used to advising young people who went o_O when I suggested going balls-to-the-wall high-risk at their age, so 80/20 was always a good compromise to get them to at least start investing for the future. And yes, buying-and-selling expenses are always a consideration if you wanted to rebalance your porfolio every year, but that's not something you necessarily have to do.

    Anyways, yes, if you can stomach the risk, Inq, small cap is the way to go. Make sure the advisor explains the fees involved, because a front-end loaded fee is your best bet if you're investing long term.

    Holy crap, I thought it was gonna be like "Oops we miscalculated our costs and so fired a lot of people we didn't have to, here are your jobs back." Instead it's like the complete opposite in the worst way possible.

    The last time I took an IQ test was in the 1st grade.

    I'm kinda curious to take an accurate one (I'm skeptical of pretty much all online ones) for comparison, and partially because I don't remember exactly what I got back then.

    No such thing as an accurate IQ test. All are rather subjective.

    I really don't know how I'd respond if either one of my parents sent me a text.

    I'd probably ask them why they're nagging my brother to help them with their phone.

    Is there some sort of option in the US to pull cash out of a 401k without penalty to buy a home or anything like that? Because if that's the case, there are plenty of good reasons (ok, one) to not be 100% high risk with the retirement fund.

    If all IQ tests are inaccurate as a result of being subjective, then the statement 'there is also no such thing as an inaccurate test' is incorrect. You can't have both, the conditions are mutually exclusive. :P

    That option does exist for Roth IRA's. I don't remember the specifics (it's been awhile since I was working in the industry), but I believe you can pull out up to 10k towards a 1st home purchase.

    There's certain criteria that has to be met before you can do that though. I'll have to look it up later when I have the time.

    Ask your LFS if they stock Biospira. It is literally the bacteria you need. However, because of this, it needs to be refrigerated and has a short expiry time, so check the package before you buy it.

    And that makes me happy. :) I'm glad you're enjoying the new guild enough that you want to bring your mains over.

    There are a few people I know on my old server but I have no desire to raid on any kind of regular basis and they're mostly in a raiding guild.

    Mostly I want cool people to talk to and group with while levelling up. Gotta get that rogue to 70!
