I’ve gotten used to not going out during my periods and I don’t want to after pandemic.
I especially don’t want to go to work where the washroom is a 3 minute walk from my desk.
At home - If I have cramps, I can easily access my hot water bottle. I can lie down. I can take meetings while lying down and don’t have to run around looking for empty cabins / meeting rooms.
I can go on mute or off camera and don’t have to smile through my discomfort!
I don’t have to give reasons why I don’t wanna grab a snack break with the team - walk out of the office building to the nearby restaurants / street vendors.
I want to NOT MOVE as much as I can for at least 3 days a month, without care of what meetings I can’t attend face to face.
I also don’t want to sit in a cab / bus / whatever for 45 mins + in peak traffic to reach office. Especially when my uterus is going FUCKKKK YOU.
sigh yes. I’m on my period.

Oh boy have I missed you, my Apes. I come to you as a primate reborn. I haven't shaved, showered, or talked to my dad in four months... yeah this 3-day sabbatical really took a toll on me. After taking my sabbatical where I only drank WD40 and coconut oil, only ate pringles, fig newtons, gushers, and Cheetos, only listened to Fifth Harmony, Megan Thee Stallion, and Linkin Park, only used the bathroom ONCE per day, and only called my wife's boyfriend for 45 minutes per day (thank god that's over, I need my 8 hours), I come to you as an enlightened primate. Now reporting, HomeDepotHank69, the orangutan:
Yes Apes, through my time locked in my shed I smoked many crayons. I went to the depths of the internet to find information. After scouring Reddit and seeing other posts from you beautiful apes, after spending a strangely long time on federal websites looking for statutes, and after waiting 55 FUCKING MINUTES FOR A SINGLE SANDWICH FROM FUCKING JIMMY JOHNS, I come to you as an orangutan with one thing:
If you've seen my Magnum Opus posts, skip to the part where I say your meat smells good
Apes, before I get started I wanted to give you a quick run-through of my recent GME posts. Over the past week or so I posted a series of DDs that I dubbed my "magnum opus" where I used past price and volume data of GME to try to predict where it might go in the future. I found some STARK similarities between early January and now as well as some similarities between mid-late 2020 and the post-squeeze period. However, as many of you know, the theory did not pan out. Many of you still think that my theory may be correct but just off by a few days (we will have to see). However, I could not shake the glaring similarities that I saw in price action. So, if it wasn't price similarities, it had to be something else, which is why I come to you today with this research. Finally, before summarizing I just wanted to again thank all of you for the great response to my posts. I absolutely love doing this and the positive reaction that I've gotten from comments, a... keep reading on reddit ➡

I've been abused all year by my school and admin team. The pathetic attempts of teacher appreciation leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.
More importantly, the way American culture treats teachers now a days is pure abuse.
Am I supposed to be thankful for this week of pathetic thank yous?
If they wanted to thank us they'd pay us better, have maternity leave covered, provide us the materials we need, and give us an ounce of respect.
Fuck this week. Fuck the honeymoon phase of teacher abuse.

Greetings, honorable WSB citizens. I've been playing with SPY and indexes recently, and it led me to formulate an interesting outlook on the current state of the market. I am really curious about what noble WSB gentlemen have to say on all these findings, so feel welcomed to engage in the discussion upon reading the post.
Compulsory, this is not a financial advice, and I am not an advisor - more than that, I am almost confident that I don't even know what I'm doing.
P.S. Commenting "Stonks only go up" as a counter-thesis is perma 🌈🐃
The main purpose of this work is to provide a technical counter-thesis to the current market craze, and to spark a constructive discussion. As it was mentioned in the post title, the tools that were used for creating this TA on SPY include: market cycles analysis, for setting a suitable framework; Elliot waves theory as a method of ordering major market movements; Fibonacci retracement for identifying the key, magnetic support and resistance levels; and a sweet 150 moving average to predict the potential bottom of the bear market. These tools will also be given a deeper explanation in the beginning of the discussion, for a bigger circle of WSB participants to wrap their brains around the technical factors at play. If you consider yourself to be a trader with sufficient technical knowledge and skills, feel free to skip the part II. The third part will be focused on the technical data accumulation, based on the historical examples from different time periods, and for different markets types. Part IV is the juiciest, as it incorporates the thesis formation through the application of all the data accumulated in the process of the analysis. V is a bonus part. Without further ado, let's get started.

My social skills didn’t improve until I took responsibility for my personal deficiencies and worked on my character, rather than trying to get people to like me. It’s an ongoing process, and it will never be fully completed. Some days are better than others.
It’s a cycle that doesn’t end until you develop yourself, take ownership of your problems, and get comfortable with people disliking you— the more you strive to have people like you and seek their approval, the more they will dislike you.
People are far more intuitive than we realize or admit. If someone is friendly for the sake of being liked, it is usually detected almost instantly.
View yourself as an independent entity in society, who helps others feel good about themselves, regardless of reciprocation. You are above the fray, and will be fine regardless if someone approves of you or not.
The only relationships you should be invested in are with those who value you, align with your character, and bring out the best in you.
The desire to be accepted by others isn’t a weakness, it’s an inherent part of our instincts and how our ancestors survived.
However, often times the superficial need for validation from others is a band-aid, where deeper level self-improvement and self-acceptance is needed.
I'm going to get some flak, or duhs, but TIL you can change a credit card's billing cycle and payment due date!?!
I've had the same cards for 10 or so years. Recently got myself an Amazon credit card as I've been getting stuff from Amazon and is a prime member. Plus, they had 2.5% back for prime members for prime purchases and some groceries, so I was dedicating this card specifically for Amazon purchases and groceries.
I also had another card with mbna, but they were opposite billing cycles, which was starting to annoy me. So I called and stupidly asked if it was possible to change the statement period. CSR said yup, and I was wow. CSR mentioned it's not usually done, as most people just stick with whatever billing cycle they end up with when they initially get their card.
Goes to show, there's still something new to learn even after all these years. Ok, roast away...
Edit/update: So apparently this is actually not the norm, as it depends on card issuer. But don't be afraid to ask :)
Edit/add: Morning, and wow, I didn't even expect this to reach 250, guess this little tidbit was more obscure than I thought. Glad to have helped those who wanted to re-align their cards to match their budgets or for ease of paying everything in one go.
**********Not a financial advisor. Not financial advice**********
Greetings, Apes. Today I was contemplating whether to cut my hair into a mohawk or to get a bald fade. Obviously, those are very similar. Today, I decided to listen to Linkin Park's smash hit, "WAP," which always gets me going. I was definitely feeling a little high cuz I had just consumed THREE, yes THREE, fig newtons when I got a message from another primate. I was hoping that he was going to tell me about a new flavor of pringles that I could try, but instead, he pointed out something important about the FTD cycle that I might've missed. His name is u/precocious_kid if you're wondering. So, perhaps in my WD40-filled voyage in my shed, I missed this important paragraph in Regulation SHO:
"Rule 204 provides an extended period of time to close out certain failures to deliver. Specifically, if a failure to deliver position results from the sale of a security that a person is deemed to own and that such person intends to deliver as soon as all restrictions on delivery have been removed, the firm has up to 35 calendar days following the trade date to close out the failure to deliver position by purchasing securities of like kind and quantity. Such additional time is warranted and does not undermine the goal of reducing failures to deliver because these are sales of owned securities that cannot be delivered by the settlement date due solely to processing delays outside the seller’s or broker-dealer’s control. Moreover, delivery is required to be made on such sales as soon as all restrictions on delivery have been removed and situations where a person is deemed to own a security are limited to those specified in Rule 200 of Regulation SHO. A common example of a deemed to own security that cannot be delivered by the settlement date is a security subject to the resale restrictions of Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933."
See that? 35 CALENDAR DAYS. Not trading days. 35 calendar days is exactly 5 weeks (5 weeks and 1 day because T+35). 5 weeks has up to 25 trading days (weeks with holidays would be less), which might help explain why the cycle seems to be anywhere from 19-22 trading days (it says "up to 35 calendar days" so this is a maximum so they could cover before then). ALSO, and maybe even more important, notice that it says "these are sales of owned securities that cannot be delivered by settlement date." How do they get around owning them?

********** Not a financial advisor. Not financial advice**********
Apety apety apes. What's the difference between GME and my wife? GME doesn't fuck the mailman. Though my wife is a legal midget, GME is still wayyyyyyyyyyy more shorted than she is. Alright, enough about me. As always, remember to see my previous posts about the FTD cycle theory or you will be more confused than I am when my wife ISNT cheating on me. Also, I hope you apes like my new avatar. Like everything else I do, my goal was to make it as abusrd and strange as possible.
So today's post is just gonna be a quick update on what's happening with GME and the FTD Cycle and obviously a meme drop. My plan is to give big updates when something major happens or when I do new research and then smaller updates like these whenever I see necessary of when I get bored.
Overall, today was a pretty good day. We were up slightly on lower volume but not as low as it has been in recent weeks. We almost hit $200 in the post-market yesterday and I would've liked to see us hit that again today but you cant have everything. Let's take positive days when they're given to us. Here's a day view of the FTD cycle theory.
Just want to reemphasize a point that someone made yesterday. When I used a log scale and noted that the FTD Cycle period was increasing linearly, I failed to realize that a linear increase on a logarithmic scale is exponential on a regular scale. This makes complete and total sense because less than a year ago when this started we were trading below $30 and never got near $50 until early January, so the idea that the pattern is exponential seems to make sense. This means that as time goes on, the price should increase rapidly until it's too late. Again, I don't believe that anyone will see it coming when we finally moon, so don't try to predict that. Yes, it's possible to guess when we will see increases, but I don't think it's possible nor beneficial to try to predict when we moon. Finally, I just want to reemphasize the idea that the point of this theory is that it gets more expensive for shorts to continue this game every cycle and that pain seems to be increasing exponentially.

**********I am not a financial advisor and this is not financial advice**********
Good evening, apes. I hate my wife.
I come to you with just a tiny little update. This will be a very random update with my thoughts on the past few days.
Price-wise, the FTD cycle theory still seems plausible as we saw that nice increase on Monday. However, volume can only be described in one way:
I am hoping for a large increase in volume well over 10M sometime soon. This seems more plausible, and I know I already said that technicals don't seem to apply to GME but I am a fucking simpleton and have no self-control, because of the fact that MACD has converged, RSI is still sitting neutral, TTM squeeze is ripe for some light blue candles, and IV is extremely low, which makes us ripe for a gamma squeeze. Also, I just wanna say that I absolutely LOVE all of the DD I see about elliot waves. I don't really consider these technicals, I more consider them law. I am not an EW trader (though I'd like to be one day), so I can't provide much DD on those. Nevertheless, I just wanted to say thank to everyone who does DD on EW because I absolutely love it, and it's in our favor right now.
Both IV and volume are extremely low right now. Volume is disturbingly low. I am honestly shocked at how low it is. Our current setup says to me that volume just needs one thing:
So yeah, I'm just waiting on a little push. It's also very strange to see so many of these days where we have minuscule volume and low price changes. With all of these low price changes, I think there's a chance that we are still in that giant triangle and have yet to break out of it because it seems that our uptrend patterns are getting smaller and shorter and our downtrend patterns are getting smaller and shorter.
As I've said many times before, SPY and GME seem to have an inversely proportional relationship probably because funds have to sell... keep reading on reddit ➡

Apes, I have something important to get off my mind. How do more people not talk about the fact that Flo Rida achieved a #1 song with "Whistle" that unapologetically gives instructions on how to suck cock all while his name is literally a pun about the state that he's from. THAT IS FUCKING MADNESS. These kinds of things keep me up at night. That and the sound of my wife's boyfriend plowing my wife. Would you all buy my mixtape? My rapper name would be Investment Hank. I'd make a song called "Whistleblower" which would be about abusively shorting stocks, crashing the market, and sucking dick.... oh wait, looks like Kenny beat me to it!
Well apes, in the words of Staples, that was:
This post is going to be an update on my FTD cycle theory based on today's price action. PLEASE see that post if you haven't already or you will be hopelessly confused. In this post, I will be giving an update on the theory based on today's price action (spoiler: it went well), I will be discussing where I think it's going in the near future and longer future, I will answer some questions that I saw in the comments, and I will say some other random shit as well, so stay tuned.
As most of you probably already know, we had an incredibly nice jump today to almost $170! However, in post-market trading, we got up to $198, which makes more sense in the broader context of the theory. Note that because the second jump was after hours, both of these charts do not display it, so it actually should look even better.
What struck me by surprise today was the low volume. Yeah, price looked very good, but volume was still only 10M. Look at the volume chart and today's volume really doesn't look that comparable to the past start/end of FTD cycles. You coul... keep reading on reddit ➡
So this is a theory, opinion, whatever you want to call it. Some data behind it are fundamentally flawed or don't exist so this shouldn't be looked at as a to-go-to DD. So, then, why post it at all?
I just want to post my own theory/belief behind what's going on with GameStop. I want to theorize, speculate, guestimate and extrapolate based on what very little data we all have available. Some parts of this post will contain from extrapolation from past data while others will be based on observation and/or data and/or extrapolation combined. A lot of this is based both on my own DD and others.
If you somehow accept this as the ultimate truth for GME... God have mercy on your soul. (Says me). Also i'm not a financial advisor and this is not financial advice, it's just my own theories on GME that i'm cultivating.
Here's the sub's rules on speculation, lies, spam, phishing, shills and fud.
I will not be replying to anyone who hasn't taken the above well in consideration before replying to this thread who's here to be toxic. To be clear, whilst this is all theoretical, it's based on some data, but that doesn't mean it's accurate.
4 days ago i made this post that blew up. It was an extension/continuation of another OP's work whom i of course talked to for permission before taking this on. Somehow this piece of crap made it on the front page of reddit. Anyway...
The idea by the previous OP was basic and i kept it basic because it seems to work. I've had ideas to add other variables to it, but for the moment it still seems like that's perhaps not needed.
Feel free to build upon this theory if you like by the way. I won't be modifying it for the time being. If you think it's wrong (which it probably is), feel free to work on it on your own and correct it or do nothing at all.
