"The best time to have kids ... is never... They cry all the time, nonstop. They never sleep. They're terrible conversationalists. And they take everything you've got. All your time, all your focus, all your patience, all your sleep, everything till you got nothing left for you... But this morning ... Little Tuck woke me up by putting his nose up against mine. His cold, little nose. And he goes,"wake up", and he got the "K " sound in "wake"."Wake up". See, up until today, he'd say "D" instead of "K"."Wade up". Girl, him nailing that "K" sound ... It's the pride I felt, the irrational, unbridled, joy".
Okay, so little moments of joy in exchange for everything you got. Cool. Let me tell you about crack cocaine. It takes all your time, money, health, energy, etc., but you do get small moments of fleeting joy in exchange. So, why don't I smoke crack? Because it's not worth the trade-off.

Sorry for the longer wait everyone. Had to deal with New Year's celebration and more personal stuff.
She took me to some kind of room. Not unlike the room I had been in for the shrapnel wound only a little while ago. A bit smaller, this was a single room with four walls, the previous one had a fabric divider in between two beds. I’m sure the double rooms served to house more patients, perhaps the singular chambers were for more invasive procedures or to discuss personal information. Either way, privacy was preferable.
The two soldiers were satisfied that we were safe, I was now far away and secure from the human who had attacked me. I was grateful for that, but I noticed a faint, concerning feeling in the back of my mind. I could rationalize that I had been treated with hospitality the whole trip up until now, that I had been saved by the human doctors, defended from pirates by their soldiers, all things that served to build my trust with humanity. However, now I had been attacked by one, and as much as I wanted to yield to logic, I couldn’t help but wonder if anyone else on this ship or the carrier had similar intentions regarding my wellbeing.
I was ripped back into reality with a snapping sound. The female had elected to change out her gloves. Or put gloves on? I couldn’t remember if she had already been wearing them. My ears were still ringing, and I had been unconsciously rubbing them. I wonder if humans had similar issues with loud sounds or impacts. Wait, obviously they do, they had hearing protection for their weapons. I must have been hit fairly hard.
“Alright, uhm, Ozzy? Was that it?”
She wrote something down on a tablet when I responded, I can’t imagine my English name was too hard to remember.
“Right, sorry, Ozis. Now I may be a doctor, but given our anatomical differences this might feel a bit… unprofessional. Here, hold this ga... keep reading on reddit ➡
Getting fucking jacked. Ortho, here I come
This year has been absolutely incredible for the SPAC market as most of us know. I see a lot of new people buying into SPACs that have just IPOed and can take 18 to 24 months to find a target. You can make money this way, but what you're not taking into account is the opportunity cost of money. It is even worse for individuals with smaller account sizes. After trading SPACs for the last year, I hope I can show some of the new guys here how to make some easy and sizable returns.
The Rumor - The "I heard you make a lot of money, let's talk". Bloomberg has had great success in reporting on SPAC rumors which are leaked from sources around the particular target or SPAC. BUY THE RUMOR!!!!. The SPAC in question will almost always be near NAV (Net Asset Value, $10 for most SPACs but it is the share price that they sell shares at to raise capital. It is essentially the floor). The risk/reward is too great to pass up if the rumor deems to be true. This obviously doesn't apply to management driven companies such as PSTH, AJAX, QELL, ect.
Example - Bloomberg released an article about $CIIC merging with Arrival. CIIC shot up ~10% on this news. Literally the next day, CIIC and Arrival confirmed the merger and the stock was up 300% within a week.
Letter of Intent - The "I like you, lets make this official". This usually corresponds to the initial POP we all see on many SPACs. They find a company they like, a deal is struck, and they plan to take it to the shareholders. Depending on the company they plan to merge with, SPACs can stay flat or fly based on the LOI. This is where you do a majority of your DD (due diligence). I always ask the same questions I ask any company I am looking to throw money at. What problems do they solve? What are their growth rates? Revenue? Debt? Previous funding? Competitor market caps? Is it in a sector that is particularly strong right now (looking at you EVs, Fintech, Space, ect.)? Depending on these answers the SPAC can either continue to gain for days after the LOI or begin to lose steam. I buy most of my SPACs after a LOI. This is the only way you will know what company they are merging with and speculate on its future prospects. After the hype dies down form a LOA and before the DA, most SPACs will lose share value.
The Definitive Agreement - The "will you marry me?". SPAC and the company it courted have hashed out the terms of the deal. This is where we find out all the financial numbers such as PIPE money, future market... keep reading on reddit ➡
There’s no real “villain,” per se, except for death and illness and injury.
Sure, there are plenty of characters that do bad things, but none of them are quintessentially villains in the traditional sense.
