Aggressiveness - we're young, we've got time on our sides - are there more risky investments that we can 'sensibly' indulge in? how much risk is acceptable to take on?

(I wrote a medium sized reply to this, but when I went to move it to word to spell check I clicked CNTL-Q instead of CNTL-A. I don't have time to retype the whole reply, so in brief)

I don't like the term Risky Investment. I think Risky is a loaded term. At least it is with me. Volatility we can accept, but not too much risk. If one of your concerns is that the company may go bankrupt, then avoid it like you would the craps table.

Volatility we can handle. Risk is for gamblers.
