  1. Right about now Forus would show up and drop a "shorting 500 contracts" and post a picture of an internet cafe in Amsterdam.. and I'd be asking if he meant putz or calls 😄
  2. Looks like a little fartcal of the Galloping Giraffosaurus pattern on the 5-day chart. A Galloping Giraffosaurus within a Galloping Giraffosaurus. Or perhaps a barfing Giraffosaurus within a Galloping Giraffosaurus.
  3. I've adopted as a policy to stay out of the streets, and preferably as far away as possible, whenever any crowd assembles wearing the same colored clothes or waving the same flag etc. Cops definitely qualify. It's probably ingrained survival stuff by now for Our People.
  4. The fart heard round the world? https://finance.yahoo.com/news/evergrande-officially-defaulted-dmsa-preparing-161200818.html
  5. Some folks on the interwebs are circulating a Forbes link to an old story (like years) about Chine local govt financing vehicles (LGFV)s being a way bigger problem than Evergrande. Every few years the amount goes up by some equally uncountable number. When I first sawr it a week ago, I searched and found the same story going back at least 7 or 8 years, always quantified in the trillions of dollars. So, in short, c'est du n'importe quoi.
  6. Exiting my Yom Kippur cocoon to declare that Jimi, you're a genius!
  7. For what very little it's worth, the "time-in-market > timing-the-market" crowd is really lathered up in the various subreddits.
  8. 200 miles north of Calgary was cold af, with the sun rising around 9am in the winter. Matter of fact, the folks I hung out with in Edmonton didn't bother with winter coats because they didn't consider being outside as a serious option - they'd put on wind breakers, get in the car in the garage, drive to the mall, run from car to mall and then perambulate for a few hours indoors. Bigger issue for them was sweating while doing so - hence the windbreakers. I was also the first Jew they'd ever met, which was apparently a big deal for them around holiday time. One of the uncles greeted us with a big "Happy Chanuk....oof" that was cut off when his wife elbowed him. But they kept the rye and gingers coming, and it was all good. Pretty chill place. But cold-af. I thought Rome was at Club Med latitude 🙄
  9. Glad you're feeling better. Canuckistan is closed for the day, but I only noticed at around 11am 😄
  10. This feels like tic-tac-toe.. would love to make a move, but the best one is not to play. Like WOPR in Wargames...
