After pumping Dogecoin for months, Elon flips the script and advises crypto investors to invest with caution.
Seems like too little too late. We already know many new investors fomoing into Doge will be burned.
Seems like a bunch of shenanigans to me.
So, I've always read you need to backup your hard drive. I knew if I lost everything I'd be devastated. Well, I decided to pay $10 a month for Google drive backup (2tb) for my music files. I synced my computer to my drive so that my files from my music folder went in there. Great, I have 2 copies now.
I tried setting up raid, upgrading to Windows 10 Pro since Home doesn't allow Raid, and found my one hard drive was like 5kb smaller than my already used one, so I said "well that sucks, I'll need to manually transfer everything over, I'll do it later" but later never came. I forgot to do it. Well i still have 2 copies so I'm good right?
Nope. Hard drive got a trojan horse, files went missing. About 700gb of music recordings. I freaked out and went to my google drive sync...
turns out, google sync (unknowingly to me) deletes files that are synced up if they disappear on your drive. I imagine there might be a way to set it up so this doesn't happen, but I'm not sure. and it would've been really nice to know this beforehand...
so I had to run a recovery tool which thankfully seems to be working at the moment and will take like 10 hours. But now I probably will need to reorganize EVERYTHING since it'll probably just all recover everything to one folder.
Let me say, I'm not blaming google drive for this. I should have known this was how they were set up. But now I've learned my lesson. I'm going to set up my backup to Backblaze or Carbonite. They're cheaper anyways and have unlimited storage.
I also ordered 2 new SSD and will use one as a backup, and the old hard drive as another backup (as long as it's larger than the new SSD cards by at least a few Kb) since I believe the drive is still good and was only corrupted from a virus
So please back up your stuff. I feel like a moron not having done more to make sure my files were safe. And if you're like me and using drive, look into making sure it isn't set up how I had set it up with Google sync because how I used it clearly wasn't correct.
With Subaru's duck meme blowing up all over the place and getting even more eyes on Hololive, I want to express the importance of wanting to spread the word about the company and the talents for their sake, not your own. I know it's exciting to be apart of something big and wonderful, but too often in the past have I seen the members of the myriad fandoms I've been a part of go on a crusade of sorts to tell EVERYONE they can about THEIR fandom and why it's great and why they should join. It may not seem like a big deal to those who are already "in the rabbit hole", but for everyone else who isn't, it can come across as rude and incredibly annoying, and can drive away anyone who might have been curious about it on their own; ie: "If this is how the fans are, I don't want anything to do with it".
Hololive's popularity and success have been meteoric in the past couple years, and more people are becoming aware of it every day, sometimes whether they like it or not. And while there are many who are happy to talk about the talents and what makes them great, it's worth remembering that the line between being an enthusiastic fanbase and a rabid one is very thin and often blurry. We should want to share our experiences with others because we want to see the lads and ladies in Hololive grow and succeed, not because it's popular and we happen to be a part of its fandom; we need to think about the men and women behind the company and the talents, not ourselves. It's great to love and be excited about Hololive and everyone in it, but it's not part of an online popularity contest. I'm not suggesting this is happening on the regular and that most of us are guilty, but when a fandom starts to get big enough, this inevitably, invariably, begins to happen. Let's stay excited, but play it cool, yeah?
tl;dr- Don't become another Homestuck fandom
Greetings fellow Apes, Ape-ettes, Non Binary Apes, and those I've missed!
Keeping it short and sweet:
Be cautious when reading ANYTHING and EVERYTHING, even in beloved Subs. They will try to get you to think the squeeze has squoze when it's just getting started.
Regarding the MOASS, Shitadel & Co, and even General Economics, nothing will really effect the REAL price of a stock (Once it squeezes) other than who's buying and who's selling. (and they will need to buy A LOT)
MSM could say Shitadel has closed and covered positions when the price is at 1k, 10k, or even 100k and twist the narrative with added shorts, simulating the peak to get us Apes to sell. HF's and MSM want Apes thinking "Well Shitadel is bankrupt, that means it's over, so I'll sell..."
Even if they are bankrupt and some HF's won't be playing ball with us anymore, it doesn't mean we give up too.
IT MEANS WE CAN SCORE ON AN EMPTY NET.
Let the Tendieman come.
I FOR ONE AM NOT EVEN ENTERTAINING THE IDEA OF SELLING BELOW 10 MILLION PER SHARE
I for one don't care what's happening in the world, I will only look for when the selling price of one share is Greater than 10 Million, then I'll be interested in selling 1, and only 1 as a pity share to those HF's.
Full disclosure - I do restaurant and small food business consulting for a living. I've been in the food business for 25 years in some capacity or another. I'm not here trying to drum up business or promote my book (a how-to for people who want to get into the food biz inexpensively) and I'm not going to dox myself - I say these things because I want to promise you that I've been there, done that, and know what I'm talking about.
I've been seeing a lot of comments lately like "hey, I'm going to start a small ghost kitchen! I'm going to start a food business! All I need is a few thousand bucks!"
Is it doable? Yeah - it's not the price that's an issue, but it's that there are so many cooks out there who get really excited about this, not knowing how f'ed they're about to be by massively running afoul of local and state licensing and regulations - most of which are put into place for good reason - no one wants you to make anyone sick, no one wants you to kill anyone.
If you're interested in trying to do this from home, well, you've got the deck stacked against you, depending on your business model.
To do a cloud kitchen out of your house legally, you'll have to look into your local/state cottage laws. Almost certainly, you won't be able to run delivery out of there, unless you're in certain places in California. (Most states' cottage licenses only extend to selling at farmer's markets, and underneath a certain dollar threshold, with a very specific range of types of products applicable.) If you're lucky enough to live in a spot where you're able to run a food delivery business out of your house, you'll almost certainly be subject to inspection, just like your local restaurants are.
If you rent, running a highly visible business out of your house/apartment is almost certainly a violation of your lease.
You'll need business insurance to run any sort of food company. Your insurance company not cover you without the correct go-ahead from your local governments. "So what," you say, "I'm an entrepreneur, I'm a rebel, I'm a go-getter!" I hope you don't make anyone sick, as your deliberately uninsured business will rack up thousands of dollars in fines, if you're lucky, but most likely, criminal charges (whoops! You killed someone because you didn't want to get your plan okayed by the local government! Have fun with those manslaughter charges!)
Anyways, I say all of this because I see so many people here who are gung-ho about food businesses when they've n... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know it sounds bearish (long term I am still hyper bullish on ETH), but I feel as though it is a little early to be calling a victory of survival just yet. Many times in the past, there is a fake out to the upside after a big dip. This often results in further downside.
I would be grateful if the worse of the dip is actually over, but we need to close a daily candle above $3K before I’m happy to say that we have been through the worst of the dip.
Happy Hodling 🙌
Bron been out with an ankle injury. Maybe a return of Bron and AD is imminent. The King will be back with a vengeance. Now here’s the quote again just so I can reach the minimum word count:
> The weatherman says the weather is changing soon and it predicts a thunderstorm ⛈ ☔️ is coming. Folks prepare and take the proper caution
Now that Elon said that, we are back into it... But before he said it, lot of people said it also, be carefull on how much money you put it, be carefull because of its volatility, you shouldnt put all your eggs in one basket, etc etc.
Hell im gonna say it, majority of my money now is on crypto, its not much since im a pleb from Argentina where the salary is 200/300 usd these days, but still, talking on % im big on crypto. For us, the plebs, we cannot invest into our local currency because has been devaluating for 20 straight years, and im not talking about the lil numbers of "USD is devaluating!!" , hell we had several years with 50%+ devaluation where we dont have any protection from it, interests on banks very lower than that, and salary recomposition too, we are getting poor year by year, or month by month to be exactly. We have been fked for our government, bankers much longer than the corona printing and crisis (when everyone seems to have woken up, thanks to that!!). So yes, i will go big on crypto because for some people its not about becoming rich, but its a escape from not becoming poorer. Theres no one protecting us for us becoming more poor, so we have to do something by ourselves, and the only option out there (beside working and surviving) is getting into crypto as an investment, and wait some years to at least say im middle class or something because of it.
Im not investing into shitcoins looking for a megapump exit, im betting into btc and eth for the long term.
Nannying is a predominantly female identifying industry so these habits may already be life-long practices for many of us, but this is important regardless of gender identity.
I’ve historically always been extra vigilant when out in public with my charges. We would stay in the general neighborhood for walks but always take a different route and never be in the same street or landmarks at a predictable time.
I’ve been trying to be more intentional with my daily walks with my charge, and while he slept I began to walk three to four miles each day. I allowed myself to get comfortable and started taking the same route every day. This route was exactly an hour long and exactly three and a half miles. For about three weeks now this became our normal routine. It was great; he was getting his naps and I was getting an anticipated amount of exercise. He would wake up usually in the last half mile stretch, and we’d go home in time to prep a bottle. Perfect, happy routine.
Yesterday that all changed. As I was turning down a street on our familiar route a man on a bike (who I had already seen earlier) came up slowly behind me. He was looking at me with an unsettling intensity and speaking softly, his eyes darting from me to the baby to behind us and down the way we came. It was clear he was trying to talk to me.
Now I usually watch a show I’ve seen a million times while we walk, something to entertain but nothing I have to pay too much attention to. I don’t use headphones so that I can hear our surroundings in this residential area with few sidewalks. At first I couldn’t hear the man, so I turned off the show and politely asked him to repeat himself.
Quietly he said, “You know they’ve been following you, right?”
Immediately alarmed by him I said, “No, someone is following me? Who? Did you see what they looked like?”
When he replied again it was then I realized this man was a potentially unwell transient individual. “They’ve been following you for a while, a tall skinny man and a fat man,” he said, quietly and intensely looking at my face.
I replied, again politely but firmly, that we were going home and I would call my spouse. Before he rode ahead he said one last thing.
“They want to hurt you and your baby.”
Even if my mind hadn’t caught up yet my adrenaline was pumping and out came my phone. He began to slowly pedal away and I let distance gain between us. I won’t lie, I was panicking. I started to unlock my phone to call my bosses when I could see... keep reading on reddit ➡
If we are correct and successful, we will have world-changing money. The possibilities are endless: charities; conservations; projects; businesses; retirements; etc.
For many though, no matter how much you donate it won't be enough. Be comfortable with saying "no".
It's not your responsibility to fix the world.
Some will see you as a meal ticket. That you didn't persevere, you "won the lottery". Lunches on you; business ideas; medical bills; retirements.
Be comfortable with "no".
People don't need to know you have GME shares. Don't make yourself a target. You could give every last cent, and for some it wouldn't be enough.
Once this is successful, make a list of what charities/family members you want to donate money to. Go through it with a lawyer and accountant. Be comfortable with that; even that's more than enough.
It's okay to donate if you want, but don't take on the burdens of the world and family/friends. There's literally too many problems to care about all of them; and plenty of people wanting to redistribute your wealth in their favor.
I posted a slightly different version of this over at r/transgender_surgeries the other day, and swiftly got cancelled by the mob. Good times.
My point reduces to the following:
Let this loan bring you success but I see too many people just excited to get approved and see that money in their bank account but have no idea what they plan on doing with the money.
Really interesting and cryptic shit to be pondered in u/RatioAtBlessons posts/comments.
At the risk of all you lovely apes calling me a shill for asking you to entertain an idea you don’t like, I’d like to offer a word of caution:
It wouldn’t be that difficult for someone to make up a bunch of shit to make it seem like they have really important secret knowledge about Ken and Citadel’s various nefarious activities.
I’m not saying that u/RatioAtBlessons is full of shit. I’m not really smart enough to know either way for sure. But I do feel I’m smart enough to (at least for now) remain agnostic on the veracity of his claims. Call me cautiously optimistic, perhaps? I urge you all to do the same. We have seen time and time again that trolls have been having a lot of fun getting our community to believe complete BS. People like to make us out to be the Qanon of finance and some clearly love doing little social experiments to see just what sort of ridiculous shit they can get us to swallow hook, line, and sinker. We have, on several occasions, done more to prove their point that we are culty than we have to refute it.
It would be absolutely awesome if all this cryptic shit from RAB was actually alluding to legitimate information about Ken & Co, but I think we should all entertain the possibility that it’s a troll having some fun at our expense.
Fake or real, it doesn’t affect my tried and true strat of hodling.
Of course like everything in our community, this is just one ape’s opinion. But I think we would all be better off if we all exercised a bit more skepticism. It will make each of us less easy to manipulate, in my opinion.
Edit: I should add, if you have some free time and are interested, investigate the shit out of RAB’s photos and comments and shit! It’s interesting as hell. Worst case scenario it’s a little waste of time. Best case we get genuine insights about what’s going on in a situation/system designed such that apes like us are intentionally left in the dark.
You might know me from some of my GME posts several weeks ago, or from my Planet Money interview. I've been pretty quite the last few weeks and I have a reason why.
First to answer some well asked questions.
I only played shares.
I rolled several of my shares on peaks from Dec-Jan
Yes I made $4million and I'm still holding a lot of shares
Now to what I really wanted to state to new WSB members and old members like myself.
!!!A word of caution!!!
Several people, people pretending to be normal WSB members and then after a few reddit messages informing me they have been in finance for 25 years (going as far as creating new accounts to try and talk to me) Others who have been trying to identify me on Reddit, and asking for me to either email them or call them, and even meet up. Dont engage these people
MY message to these people. Do you think I'm stupid? Anonymity is my friend at this point. We all have seen what happens to users like DFV once you get a name and a face. Stop trying to threaten people or identify then for money.
Yes I made money. Deal with it. No need to try and scare and threaten someone on the internet. No one in my life other than my wife knows about the money anyway.
Stay safe kids, the internet is a big place. Don’t give out too much details about yourself. Remember, people can have the ability to see your post history on other subreddits if you dont disable it.
Finally: BRO, I just like the stock
I'M STILL HOLDING, and ITM.✋💎💎💎🤚 my opinion is that GME is a 🚀 waiting to lift off again.
Edit: I went quiet a few weeks ago because of some of the crazy shit people said to me. You name it, it was said. Scams, help me, i’ll find you and kill you. I’ve never had that attention before. Plus with the DFV legal issues. Yes I also updated my messages so it doesn’t happen again.
Stay safe kids, people are shockingly crazy.
He gets mad at me whenever I describe myself as a lesbian :(
I see people dumping their savings, stocks, even houses, and going all-in into physical silver in this movement. Although I agree with the premise of this movement to end market manipulation and return to sound money. I am also concerned that this could backfire or fall flat and those that went all-in will get screwed. This happened with the market crash in 1929, which is basically a pump and dump.
So, here's one scenario I see happening. Silver hits $50 or even $100 and a bunch of people exit their position at that point. Then there's a correction and silver falls back to $20. If you take profit at $100, do you buy back in at $20?
Scenario 2, silver gets to about $35 and is kept suppressed by endless manipulation. People trying to sell their position can't due to lack of buyers. This could also happen with silver at $100. Who is going to buy your silver for $100 an ounce?
Understand supply and demand. Everyone who has silver has the supply, but where's the demand? Industrial, sure, but they can get supply for cheaper than what you're willing to sell for. That's wholesale pricing, they'll buy from refineries or comex, not coin shops, and not you. If the coin shops have enough supply, they're not going to buy from you because there's no one to sell to. Imagine Ebay filled with page after page of all of you trying to sell your silver for $100 an ounce and no one is buying. Something to consider.
So for those going all-in, are you debt free? I hope so. Do you have other reserve resources for if the worst should happen? If silver goes back down, what's your plan? If you can't sell your silver, what's your plan? Do you think this is a pump and dump?
I think the best approach to this is gradual accumulation. Take some out every paycheck and buy some metal, gold and silver.
Nothing in this is to be taken as financial advise, invest at your own risk and remember, you could lose everything.
I was riding my bike yesterday down Charles, and rode through the Borden intersection. The tracks cross over the middle of the road. My front tire slid in and got caught in the track and I wiped out pretty hard.
The front of my bike stayed straight up in one spot and abruptly came to a stop which caused my weight to shift forward and my bike to do a tail whip. I landed on my handlebars pelvis first like a wishbone and snapped my bars right off. I sustained serious injuries to the inside of my leg, including a puncture wound from the end of my brake handle going through my leg.
At the end of the day I should have paid more attention and been more cautious. Or stopped to walk my bike across the road. So I accept that part of things. However, there is also no signage, and many people do ride through zones like this. This is a word of caution to people about these types of scenarios.
I will be contacting the city and asking them to put up signs or something that can deter this from happening to someone else. The ER doctor told me he could also see this happening to someone with an assistive device like a walker. It would be unfortunate if someone got their wheel stuck in the track at the crosswalk and someone hit them not paying attention.
In stage 3 of last night’s truck race, just 18 of 55 laps were run under green. In the last 35 laps, just 6 were run under green. To only run 6 of the last 35 laps under green just seems ridiculous to me. Additionally, people often complain about stage cautions taking upwards of 8 laps sometimes, despite not requiring any sort of cleanup.
Most local short tracks don’t count caution laps, is it time for nascar to do the same, even if it meant reducing the advertised distance? They instituted the cone rule last year which is popular at local short tracks, I think following the local tracks in not counting caution laps would also be beneficial. It would prevent situations like last night, and would allow for the networks to run more commercials during cautions and therefore less during green flag racing.
Caution when trying out Tidal's "free" month When you sign up for a free month with Tidal, you have access to their library at the normal "resolution" files.
If you click the "high quality" option within the Tidal app, you will be charged $19 US. You will not be given a warning for the charges and Tidal will not give you a refund. Also, when you do "cancel" the subscription using the manage subscriptions option, the cancellation is not actually a cancellation, it is a downgrade returning you to normal files and you will be charged $9 subscription fee even though you might think you have completely cancelled the subscription.
If you wish to try Tidal please be careful!
