Is the recent Don Jr. Correspondence definitional treason?

I'm NOT right-leaning at all but I'd like an accurate representation of what Don Jr. really did with WikiLeaks (that we know of.) I've found that I've championed some bad intel in the past, so this quest for an answer is to prevent this.

Random suggestion, for creating a study guide, take terms from your notes and their corresponding definitions, and change the text color of one to white

Sort of just a random suggestion, this is something that I imagine is almost common sense to a lot of people, but I figured i'd throw the strategy around anyways. Basically what the title says, you just take the "answer" portions of your study guide(usually the definition of a term, but you can reverse it) and change the text color to white(Which unfortunately isn't in Evernote's basic pallet).

This will hide the text, and in order to see it you will need to highlight the text. So you can check how well you actually know terms as a sort of study guide.

May be kind of obvious, and there are probably better methods for creating study guides, but I tried this out to see if it would work for an exam I had to take, and it was kinda nice(could've formatted it a bit better)

Any suggestions or extra input in order to better this technique are of course welcome, and maybe this will even help someone if it isn't to obvious.

Thank you for your time.

For those taking the new C779 Web Development Foundations course, I found some resources that might help!

Hey everyone,

I see a lot of posts on here who are struggling with remembering HTML and CSS syntax. While I took the certification version of C779 and don't know the competencies for the new exam, reading the posts here have given me the gist that it's more coding-related than not. So while doing something completely unrelated, I found a couple of websites I think may prove to be immeasurably helpful.

https://htmlreference.io/

https://cssreference.io/

Both websites work kind of like other programming languages' reference sites do. They're a list of every word used in the syntax that you can click onto its own page that explains how it works, what you can use it with, where it goes in the HTML document (for HTML), what it's purpose is (for CSS), and an example code block using it.

It's like a dictionary for both languages. If you work best at quizzing, maybe try a program like ANKI or Quizlet and copy the tags and corresponding definitions onto cards and quiz yourself. Also, definitely look into freecodecamp.com for their Web Development curriculum (since it gives you a testing environment and the ability to learn both HTML and CSS incrementally).

Anyway, I hope these websites help. I'm going to be adding them to my BSCS course repo on the C779 page shortly for future reference. If you're taking the C779 and used these, let me know if/how they helped!

FO Received (finally) and VA Timeline

Medical Provider position with the VA, GS-12:

  • Job Posted 11/07/2020-11/20/2020

  • Applied 11/13/2020

  • Referred 11/29/2020

*Interview 12/09/2020

*TO 12/10/2020 - accepted 12/13 (back and forth about potential start date- waited until 90 days out from start date Mar 28 to complete physical/fingerprints)

  • Completed onboarding paperwork (SF-85, 10-2850 etc) 12/15

  • VetPro e-mail received and completed 12/22

  • Physical/fingerprinting completed 01/12/2021

  • Radio Silence

  • FIRM OFFER 02/02/2021

I will be moving across the country for this job. I had my physical done at my current location and β€œsent” to my new location. Bloodwork, urinalysis, etc all made it to new location. After several follow-up emails with HR, found out the physician continually sent them the wrong paperwork for physical- this was the hold up with my FO. Stats: applied 7, qualified 7, referred 4 (with interview request) only accepted one interview.

Important to keep an open line of communication with the HR person that emails you about completing the paperwork. I had several hiccups with trying to do all of my onboarding in a different location and they were quick to fix it. Professional and friendly with each correspondence definitely helped, in my opinion. Tried to keep my request for updates on status to 1x/ 10 days.

WE DID IT. Thanks to everyone here for being open about their process and allowing me to find some comfort in the timeline. Please reach out with any questions and I can give you my experience. I know it can be hard when they tell you not to give notice at your job and then ask for a letter of recommendation from your supervisor....

Studying China: a resource for Political Economy and (some) Ideology

Edit: I have added some sources to this compilation (January 31st, 2021). I am still looking for resources to add, and I will periodically comb through relevant threads and internet sources/libraries to find good resources to add, so feel free to check back to find more readings.

Note that my thoughts in this compilation are subject to change as more study is accomplished (and hence will represent my thoughts as of the posting date in October 2020), but the resources provided will always stay the same.

Skip the first three sections if you just want the resources

Introduction

On this forum, there is a void when it comes to political-economic resources for China's post-reform period. To be more specific I refer to a lack of a unified and continuous literature source, for MIM (for example) has some valuable resources to a certain extent (which I will be listing), say up to the 90s, but the literature seems to end there (save for some bits and pieces of theory which reference China, or literature which otherwise concerns them more generally). For Reddit, the most valuable conversation and resources are spread about various comment sections while the most unified material is unsatisfactory. I say this in the most general sense but it should be clear to everyone that news stories and books by politicians are far from satisfactory, and an informative post which primarily draws upon such sources is not doing the necessary work. This post seeks to begin remedying this (I do not claim that I can provide a super resource to fill the gaps).

I won't simply be drawing upon sources which have already been read such as MIM theory and Li Minqi etc. (although they will most certainly be included here); I will also be drawing upon a burgeoning field of English-written (or translated) Chinese Marxian political economy, and more varied sources such as those which posters here have made reference to (for example, those examining the regional economic relationship of South Korea/Japan and China).

The end goal is to promote a more accurate understanding of modern China.

Why are previous megathreads unsatisfactory?

They have been primarily focused on ideology, and it is not clear how deep an ideological understanding one could even get from reading them.

As Marx said:

> My view is that each particular mode of production, and the relations of production corresponding to it at each given moment, in short 'the economic structure of society', is 'the real fou

[undergrad math] Any tips for group theory?

I'm a physics student in a college and taking group theory for this semester. Although it is not required for my major, I thought group theory is essential, so I decided to take it. But, I have been overwhelmed a lot since the first day of class and could barely follow the class itself. What I know so far is only group, subgroup, and some corresponding definitions. I could solve half of the first homework problem alone, but I needed some hints from prof for the rest of them. Right now, I received my next homework assignment and it seems like I can't solve any of them. I looked up the definition, went through some examples, but no idea for brand-new questions.

For example, I think I can prove a problem that is based on fundamental things (associativity and commutativity) and has some additional features. But I can't prove the associativity of addition and multiplication or such kinds of problems. I just felt like "why do I have to prove this? it's obvious!" (I know it sounds arrogant, but I honestly feel like that...)

I am considering dropping group theory since the due day for dropping courses is soon, but I just want to try one more time to see if I still can follow the course (understand the content). So far, I made a summary of definitions after each class. If you have any advice (i.e., how to take classes, how to review after each class, etc...), I would really appreciate it. Sorry for such a messy post, but hopefully someone gonna read and give me advice :)

Holophrasis in Durorp

by Natalie Raver-Goldsby

Background:

Durorp is a minority language spoken by the small ethnic group of Korup. Durorp is one of the 150-200 Bantoid languages^(2). As so far of linguistic genealogy, Durorp descends from a series of other languages, the root of which is the Atlantic-Congo languages. There are multiple dialects of Durorp spoken in Korup villages which are found throughout Cameroon and Nigeria^(1). This is consistent with other Bantoid languages which originate between Nigeria and Cameroon^(2). Durorp has connections and linguistic similaries to other languages such as Efik, Ejagham, and English^(1). The two former of which are also Bantoid languages.

There are numerous cases of holophrasis in Durorp. Holophrasis is the tendency of one language to express multiple utterances or a complex utterance in a shortened manner in contrast to an alternative language. For example, what may take multiple utterances to say in language A, may only take a word in language B.

The following cases are some examples of holophrasis.

Lexical Holophrasis

https://preview.redd.it/pa2ariptj3z51.png?width=177&format=png&auto=webp&s=77bb075ada9b6b7b8bdf697440fb012508ee8a1e

This first example of lexical holophrasis is an adjective which is similar to our adjective "naΓ―ve," however it additionally means naΓ―ve to the point of trusting a stranger or someone who lacks familiarity. There is no corresponding definition in English, unless one uses multiple words and therefore this is a case of lexical holophrasis.

https://preview.redd.it/1b368wb0k3z51.png?width=572&format=png&auto=webp&s=5a603cd9da011fe7a9a90726ec8c98dfc3bfd82a

This example of lexical holophrasis is a verb meaning "to spend the day doing nothing productive." It is an example of holophrasis in that, it takes multiple utterances in English to communicate what Durorp expresses in one word. This concept is also found in a noun derived of the ver: kaikwait which means "a break from work for a whole day (sometimes but not always associated with lazy people)."

Grammatical Holophrasis

https://preview.redd.it/1vas5r3ap3z51.png?width=758&format=png&auto=webp&s=c8e017d4658b16eda895a7d8dcbff736bd43b1bc

A case of grammatical holophrasis is object pronouns, specifically the pronoun "it." In Durorp, the stem of "it" pronouns do not change, however depending on the beginning letters of the referent, the prefix will change. For example, the pro

How to explain social consciousness to monopolist capitalists?

I have a strong opinion on what Marx meant by social consciousness in his "A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy" (1859),

> In the social production of their existence, men inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production. The totality of these relations of production constitutes the economic structure of society, the real foundation, on which arises a legal and political superstructure and to which correspond definite forms of social consciousness. The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life. It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.... [emphasis added]

In particular, I believe he was referring to what USCB psychology professor and attachment theory scholar Daphne Bugental calls hierarchical power, coalitions, and reciprocity or fairness in her 2000 paper, "Acquisition of the Algorithms of Social Life: A Domain-Based Approach." While Bugental's is a useful framework, it is difficult to operationalize without detailed psychophysiological knowledge of the limbic and endocrine systems.

However, Maidique and Hiller, in their 2018 MIT Sloan Management Review piece, "The Mindsets of a Leader," have a list of "operative questions" in their Figure 2 which seem to get at the crux from more or less the same direction.

Is that a helpful way to explain the concept to capitalist captains of industry who don't understand why monopolizing leaves their customer base impoverished?

A Marxist view of Psychiatry in a nutshell :

I'm reposting this with an added quote and I also just learned how to format quotes on reddit so that is another reason I'm reposting this. Please moderators feel free to delete my other post that is similar to this :

>"The actual way of studying disease in any society is by analyzing its historical presence within the political, economic, and ideological power relations in that specific social formation. And by this, I do not mean the analysis of the natural history of disease but rather the political, economic, and ideological determinants of that disease, determinants resulting from the overall power relations of production. These power relations are the ones which determine the nature and definition of disease, medical knowledge and medical practice." [1]

So, the unscientific nature of psychiatry is a fundamental hole in it , but this is ineffective low hanging fruit; We don't live in a society based on science, see the movie Gattica for instance (an admittedly Capitalist pseudo-critique of scientific society), rather we live in a Capitalist society .

>"Capitalism frames the institutional, group, and personal understandings of the world and responses to it. This includes the structure, practices, and priorities of the mental health system itself..." [2]

So ... here is the elephant in the room why only a few people like myself can view psychiatry clearly (hopefully fellow Marxists here can understand it too) :

>"Karl Marx’s analysis of capitalism is recognised by scholars on both the right and the left as highly significant in explaining the formation and continuance of the fundamental economic and social inequalities witnessed within advanced industrial societies. His theory of historical materialism states that the source of human progress and historical change is not to be found in β€œlegal relations” or β€œpolitical forms,” but rather β€œin the material conditions of life”. By this Marx means that the economic relations of human beings determine all other relations in that society. *Material survival rather than the development of rationality and spiritual thinking forms the fundamental basis of human endeavour in each historical epoch In challenging the individualist, liberal theorising of many of his contemporaries, Marx argued that industrial society had not created a radically new society of rational individuals endowed with free will, but instead introduced a new form of industrial slavery which in many ways replicated the medie

The Cthonic Companions correspond to the 7 Greek definitions of love (Spoilers)

This is just a pet theory with the latest update and developments, but a few things got me thinking.

One new line I hadn't heard from Aphrodite before was very specific, about there being '7 different kinds of love'. I was already familiar with the Greek definitions, but then Dusa repeated something similar, and it felt more like a hint towards this idea: Each person that can give you a companion plushie and Zag's relationship with them corresponds to one of the 7 (or 8 depending on where you read) definitions of love (generally: agape, eros, philia, storge, philautia, xenia, ludus).

Megaera is the first and easiest to place: Eros, or 'intimate love'. It's very intensely rooted in the physical as the root of 'erotic' might suggest, which fits them - she's the only one who appears as an enemy, there are constant random hookups from the lounge (assuming you romanced her). I'm not familiar with the non-romance path, but eros isn't strictly romantic or sexual - it primarily involves a deep understanding of one another, which fits Megaera finally accepting Zagreus and his need to escape. The 7th type of love, ludus, being the casual first-time love between young lovers, in the manner of flings and such, also fits the hints we've gotten about Meg and Zag's failed first relationship fairly well.

Thanatos is a good fit for philia, which translates to 'brotherly love' or 'love between equals', though to be clear that definition also includes romantic and sexual relationships. Mentioned among the description of philia is shared activities - their kill competitions fit perfectly to this. Zagreus and Thanatos were raised as close as brothers under Nyx, and as I recall their first conversations even revolve around that, which seems to fit. If you choose not to romance him, philia fits perfectly - if you choose to romance him, the same ludus that was mentioned before begins to fit him, with Zagreus and Thanatos as two new lovers starting out, with all the stuttering and heart palpitations involved.

Skelly is a bit more subtle, but I stick him with philautia, or 'self-love'. His entire purpose is helping Zagreus better himself, and in turn, Skelly is rather vain himself - if my theory is correct, his statues are an allusion to the negative form of philautia, involving egotism and vanity. His Companion effect mirrors it, making monsters entranced with him to chase him.

Marx summarises himself (with my emphasis)

>The first work which I undertook to dispel the doubts assailing me was a critical re-examination of the Hegelian philosophy of law; the introduction to this work being published in the Deutsch-Franzosische Jahrbucher issued in Paris in 1844. My inquiry led me to the conclusion that neither legal relations nor political forms could be comprehended whether by themselves or on the basis of a so-called general development of the human mind, but that on the contrary they originate in the material conditions of life, the totality of which Hegel, following the example of English and French thinkers of the eighteenth century, embraces within the term β€œcivil society”; that the anatomy of this civil society, however, has to be sought in political economy. The study of this, which I began in Paris, I continued in Brussels, where I moved owing to an expulsion order issued by M. Guizot. The general conclusion at which I arrived and which, once reached, became the guiding principle of my studies can be summarised as follows.

>In the social production of their existence, men inevitably enter into definite relations, which are independent of their will, namely relations of production appropriate to a given stage in the development of their material forces of production. The totality of these relations of production constitutes the economic structure of society, the real foundation, on which arises a legal and political superstructure and to which correspond definite forms of social consciousness. The mode of production of material life conditions the general process of social, political and intellectual life. It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness. At a certain stage of development, the material productive forces of society come into conflict with the existing relations of production or – this merely expresses the same thing in legal terms – with the property relations within the framework of which they have operated hitherto. From forms of development of the productive forces these relations turn into their fetters. Then begins an era of social revolution. The changes in the economic foundation lead sooner or later to the transformation of the whole immense superstructure.

We know that families have weapons that correspond to them Arie sword, Kuhn spear, and Ari needle. What if Lo Po Bia is whips goes along with their animal tamer theme and green is considered the color of nature which corresponds with their theme of animals.

I learnt Spanish, Hindi and Russian using the following technique and now applying it to French. Read for details

Bonjour everybody here is a technique I use to learn many languages and it works like a charm.

1: Start on Rosetta strong FREE APP first 2 levels to get the ball rolling and your tongue warmed up to that language and basic sentences.

2: Get Duolingo for that language and learn a lot of small phrases and new vocab.

3: Youtube a full lesson on Pronouns

4: Youtube a full lesson on conjugation.

5: Continue on duolingo, things now will make way more sense because the pronouns and conjugation will clear up a lot of what is going on.

6: Everytime a new grammatical confusing thing arrises YOUTUBE that specific grammatical lesson, for example: Possesive or adjectives or whatever.

7: This is my own little invention since I am a musician, I make a simple beat and then find a rhyming word in English that rhymes with the corresponding definition in French for the PHRASE I want to learn, for example: *delicious sauce = dΓ©licieuse.” And the way i sing it wit dΓ©licieuseh the melody adds so much more like tto Hong to attach to my memory so it is very easy to RECALL. Because a melody connects sooooo much more neurons to your memory versus just a regular like vocab list.

8: Watch at night short movies with subtitles, this one really puts everything together and reallllyy improves the accent and the polished feel of the language.

PEACE OUT! I will attach the song I did when I was learning TAGALOG (Filipino) and you just listen to it like a song and it is scary how fast you will memorize EVERY SINGLE phrase and I can put ALOTTTT.

An Illiad of GME Technical Analysis and DD

Apes, gorillas, cucks, tards, and degenerates gather round, Uncle Hank has some more technical DD to bestow on your smooth brains. Please bear bull with me, because this will be long. Some of you have probably seen my other posts and this will be much the same; however, this technical analysis will be more in-depth and will cover a wider ranger of indicators than previous posts. I am a technical trader and these are the indicators that I have used in the past and that I have found helpful, but this is in no way exhaustive and there are many other indicators and trading styles that are just as useful as these. Finally, I am not a financial advisor, this is not financial advice, my brain is literally a senile amoeba. As you can probably tell, I have an ADHD medicine prescription. I worked very hard on this and hope that you apes enjoy it!

Volume - catalysts

I put volume here first becuase it is BY FAR the most important indicator for a stock and ESEPCIALLY GME. Let me be clear, volume is king. Volume is god. Volume is your wife's boyfriend's wife's boyfriend's wife's boyfriend's wife's pimp's boyfriend's boss' 3rd wife's byofriend (that might be an understatement tbh). If you look at GME's chart, every single giant price increase was preceded by a large influx of volume. This is not unique to GME, as any stock requires a massive amount of volume for a massive increase in price:

Understand that volume is the only thing that will make this stock spike, as with any stock. The stock is not going to magically go to the moon without a ton of people on the buy side. Again, this is not exclusive to GME. When a stock has a great earnings report, acquisition news, FDA approval, etc, you will see a massive volume spike that leads to a massive increase (or decrease) in price. Now you're probably thinking to yourself, "ok Uncle Hank, but my tiny ape brain can't comprehend what makes volume increase." Well, volume is simply the number of people buying or selling the stock, so that begs the question, what makes more people buy or sell a stock? Catalysts. We have seen that GME is especially sensitive to catalysts. I believe that this is because WSB/retail investors own a LARGE portion of GME's float, so that guarantees that there are a stable number of holds, so when there is news, demand spikes while supply is still low. I am now go

SCMP no longer a trustworthy source of news: observations from a long-time reader

 

Four years ago, I wrote a comment defending the SCMP as a reliable news source on China-related matters:

>However, I won't deny that there are sometimes clear signs of editorial decisions being influenced by the establishment, like the lawyer's "confession", and that there might be a slow and insidious ideological creep towards the CCP party line, but because of the core audience of the paper, which consists of expats and relatively well-educated, mostly western-minded readers, they can't be quick or overt, or they risk losing their prestige and readership.

>This is why I think the SCMP's in a sweet spot right now, where it offers coverage and opinions from both sides of the ideological divide, and from both halves of the geopolitical world. Whether the paper will continue to stay in this sweet spot is something I can only guess at, but it seems to me as though there are few incentives for it to move out of its current general position within the next few years.

I again defended the paper two years later, then quoted my initial comment in defense of the paper nine months ago, saying that the part about it being in a "sweet spot" still stood.

 

Today, I'm here to say that the SCMP has moved out of the "sweet spot" and will provide arguments and evidence supporting this claim. Some might say that I'm making a mountain out of a molehill, or that I'm stating the obvious, but I feel it's important to update this piece of information to reflect reality, so on top of educating would-be readers of the paper, this is also a post for my conscience and integrity.

 

Some of you might be thinking, "Who is this person and why should we care?"

 

I made a ton of posts on /r/geopolitics from March to June of last year, along with high-effort submission statements, to spread awareness of China's role and behaviour in the ongoing pandemic--mostly to do my part in countering disinformation. The vast majority of these posts were based on SCMP reports, which I continued to feel at the time were reliable (and because negative news pieces

What are some accurate sources online or in a certain book (preferably an online source 😊) for the actual definitions/meanings/correspondences/etc. of runes? I have a feeling that a lot of online sources make their own meanings, because some sites state different meanings. What would you recommend?

I’m aiming for an online source :) btw, another question I have is how do I follow my intuition to make spells and rituals, and generally following my intuition? How do I work with herbs, candles and crystals? Those three are all things I have and want to work with.

How do you personally commune, worship and work with the deities? And lastly, what are some spells and rituals that you personally recommend or generally just do?

Much love to you all and I appreciate all answers!! ❀️

And this may be off topic, but it’s a cool synchronicity that the amount of people in this sub is 93,939 witches, as of today :) a pattern of 2 of the 3 most powerful numbers (3, 6, and 9). And also 93 is a big number in Thelema.

Sup, apetards! I've been DOING some technical ANALysis recently (fractals and shit), and found out that GeeMEeee is going to fking PENETRATE $1K next week. Hope you enjoy the read!

Yeah, you heard it right, and you most likely know that already, but lemme give you some technical rationale of how this might happen. The analysis is build upon fractal techniques, so that the previous price action is used for making this forecast. Buckle up and eat a Crayon, fellow trader (the word is used as anagram you know for what) as it will help you stay nutrated for the rest of this reading, and it might even help you with the digestion (of the information in the post).

This is not a financial advice and I am not and a professional advisor, I just enjoy to share my knowledge and educate brainless apes occasionally.

"BuT whY dO I neEd your FARTCAL ANALizis?!1"

Well, that's a good question. When I was a young ape living free in the Steppes of Kazakhstan... JK, leave poor Vlad alone for a moment. The fractal (from Latin fractus) means a steady scalable design of irregular shape emerging on any data. The trade fractal in the financial market is the pattern, formed by a sequence(es) of candles, which has peculiar identifiable characteristics and a tendency to reoccur across different scales and time-frames. Fractals are simple yet important, repetitive formations used by traders to identify and to confirm a trend. Apely speaking, fartcals allow us to forecast the future price action based on the previous similar trends on a given trading instrument.

Now that the captain is gone, let's get to business.

GME fartcals wroom wroom

I know that you all love Crayons with all of your hearts, so I will use rare turquoise and magenta ones in this analysis. Furthermore, I did my best to simplify the method of distinguishing the fractal sequences, using simple lines, and hopefully you should need no more than one brain wrinkle to understand it.
What you see on the chart (one candle represents 2 hours of price action) above is a perfect example of beautiful fractals. The chart starts from the 11th of January with the turquoise slightly downward tilted consolidation. Next you see a relatively soft magenta upward impulse (14-16 Jan), followed by another turquoise consolidation, this time slightly tilting up and lasting for about three days. Next is where the things really start to get interesting (22nd Jan), as the subsequent magenta upward impulse accelerates exponentially. This accelerection does not go quietly, erupting i

The next BTC crash could be something to behold

Also on my blog with better formatting, cute footnotes and inlined images.

Note that not much here is new material, mostly rehashing existing points.

Disclaimer

This article started out as research for my betting against Bitcoin on the stock market. This isn't financial advice. As a matter of fact, I encourage all readers you to not buy or short crypto, through any market or derivative. Use your money for productive uses.


Here's a TL;DR:

  1. The current parabolic price increase in Bitcoin is a bubble that has started popping.

  2. A [stablecoin][1] called Tether is either one of the largest frauds or money laundering operation in history, and is providing most of the liquidity in the cryptocurrency ecosystem.

  3. A BTC bubble pop, incoming [regulation on stablecoins][2] or the [current NYAG investigation into tether][3] will expose tether's insolvency to the crypto market. This is bigger than it sounds.

  4. (Speculative, but one can hope) Current prices to mine BTC could end up higher than BTC market price, exposing BTC to a 51% attack.

A Recap: Bitcoin is useless and should go away

Bitcoin serves no purpose. Let's just rehash that by quickly debunking the [major claimed uses over time][4] as seen here

  • Proof of concept: No argument here, but now that the market cap of cryptocurrencies is closing in on a $700B, this seems moot.

  • Cheap Payment Network: Nonsense, since BTC transactions are currently >$10 and this worsens the more people use it.

  • Anonymous Darknet Currency: I'd have said "no argument here", but apparently it's surprisingly easy to trace BTC nowadays. However, crypto ecosystem as a whole seems to do a decent job at laundering money as we'll see later.

  • Reserve Currency for Crypto: Since a reserve currency should be useful as a means of exchange, and [I wrote several thousand words on how BTC is not that][5], my position is pretty clear. Also, the fact that a cryptocurrency indexed to the US dollar has trounced BTC as the main means of exchange in the crypto ecosystem speaks for itself.

  • Programmable Shared Database: You know what's programmable, shared and a database? The database we use at work. Just learn to implement access control lists on your SQL server.

  • Uncorrelated Financial Asset: Given BTC crashed

The silver short squeeze is glaringly obvious to anyone paying attention to the data, the evidence is overwhelming, just take a look for yourself, PSLV

Update: I was banned 3 days after this post. I assume it’s another rogue mod who doesn’t like silver. Mods please unban me

First off, if you are long GME this is not a post to tell you to sell GME.

GME sequence of events (yes the game was rigged we retail traders got screwed):

GME is way over shorted > brokers allowed this > squeeze happens, hedge fund lose tons of money and face insolvency > Citadel gives $3 billion to Melvin Capital, despite the fact they are supposed to be a neutral market maker > price keeps surging > Melvin faces insolvency and will lose Citadel's investment, Citadel is no longer a neutral player > clearinghouses get leaned on by powerful suits to raise margin requirements on GME > brokers will have to make up the losses of the shorts they allowed to occur > they decide to save their own skin at the expense of their clients and rig the trade > instead of going to thousands per share as IBKR ceo admitted it would have, retail is robbed of billions in gains

Now on to the silver post

This is a very long post, so I apologize to the WSB apes who can barely read and will have to scroll a long way to get to the TLDR. Its also been impossible to post about silver lately on WSB (no posts approved, thanks to the mod who assisted this one), so I crammed about 3-4 posts worth into this one. Not sure when I'll be allowed to post again.

I've organized this post into 4 sections so feel free to skip around to the parts you are interested in.

  1. The silver short squeeze evidence
  2. Why the 'hedge funds are pushing silver' narrative is BS
  3. The fundamental case for silver, and why the shorts deserve to be squeezed
  4. TLDR, what to buy if you want to go long silver

Since my initial post on the potential for a silver short squeeze, I have been researching the topic to prepare a more detailed and substantiated update post. This is my latest attempt to post, and hopefully this one gets to stay up (silver censorship has been a thing here lately)

1. The potential for a short squeeze (573% of the 'float' is currently sold short)

The big thing to remember here is that if enough market participants who are long silver contracts in the futures market begin to demand delivery of their silver, there will absolutely be a meltup in the price because there simply isn't enough supply available.

repost: the removed dd from u/TblackUman

REPOST, originally from u/TblackUman:

________________________________

Apparently this DD was removed from wsb and the gme subreddits. I am concerned.

  • EDIT* IT also was getting removed from public eye on my own profile as well. Original Post This is the final test before I release a google Document or something.

This ape is back as promised. I bought some glittery crayons that were suggested to me from my last post and now I have the motivation to dive down the rabbit hole/iceberg that is Citadel And Friends. (The glitter adds a wonderful carbonated taste btw, highly recommend)

The following post is about how deep and wide is Citadel’s influence on the market with their client/customer status via Payment for Order Flow. Another post is on the way that attempts to connect the dots between the actual people involved.

SEC Rule 606 Findings:

As stated before, there is way too much data to put into just a normal bullet pointed list, so I will use my monkey skills and put my findings in a simplified table.

Column Descriptions:

>Clearing Firm: "A clearing corporation is an organization associated with an exchange to handle the confirmation, settlement and delivery of transactions. Clearing corporations fulfill the main obligation of ensuring transactions are made in a prompt and efficient manner. Clearing corporations are also referred to as "clearing firms" or "clearing houses." Definition from Investopedia ( I know I am missing a bunch, please let me know of Important ones I missed!)
>
>Brokers: A list of (major brokers that I could find) that use the Clearing Firm listed in the previous column (Many Brokers are left out as there are 1K+ of them)
>
>Paid By Citadel: If the clearing firm has been payed by Citadel for order flow ever between Q1-Q4 2020 *NOTE* There are some clearing firms that send order flow to other venues but allegedly do not get paid, those will be denoted with a "*"
