Financial Samurai on Portfolio Composition and Risk

Came across this interesting blog post on Financial Samurai.  The author discusses investment risk and portfolio allocation.  While I'm not a member of the FIRE (Financial Independence and Retire Early) movement, the article was still worth a read.  I found the charts comparing the average annual returns for various hypothetical portfolios particularly interesting.  I was surprised to see that the average annual return for an 80% stock 20% bond portfolio underperformed an all stock portfolio by less than 1% per year over the past 100 years.
