I just pulled out 200k from my Roth IRA, how much am I putting in AMC boys?

I’ve had pain in my neck for as long as I could remember, Ive just lived with it for so long. I’ve tried EVERYTHING I could afford. Taking mild pain meds or anti-inflammatories. Vibrating massagers, heating pads, ice packs. All of it, but it never really did much for me.
The other day I stopped at the dollar store for a few odds and ends, when at the checkout was this silly looking object. It’s called a face roller and it’s this little thing that kinda looks like a shrunken paint roller? It’s supposed to relax your face, and that’s what I got it for. It cost 95 cents, what did I have to lose?
It worked alright on my face, loosened it a bit but nothing too crazy. Eventually I halfmindedly started rubbing it on my neck.
And holy FUCKING CHRIST. I actually felt the knots and pain rolling away, I couldn’t believe it. I’m actually crying as I write this, I cannot believe my neck feels completely normal right now. I’m going to look online for a nice version of one of these things, because I couldn’t imagine what the non- 85 cent version is like.
I don’t have anyone to tell this too, so just felt like bragging somewhere. I’m so unbelievably happy right now.
Edit: I just googled “face roller” and set it to shopping and it’s pretty much the only thing that shows up.
Prices for burgers getting too damn high!!
That is all. Thank you
The Age of the Retail is upon us.
The brokers have given us commission-free trading. Reddit, twitter, etc. have given us a collective hive mind where ideas can be nurtured, critiqued, developed, distributed, and acted upon in concert.
However, the government, hedge funds, brokers, et. al. still practice their dirty tricks to protect their own. We should fear the systematic risk of cronyism within the halls of government and Wall Street to put the brakes on our profit making, which is our lawful American right.
Should the SEC illegally or unjustly intervene on behalf of their friends (who so often reward government poodle regulators with lucrative jobs after leaving civil service), we will need to find a large law firm that specializes in securities and class actions and is willing to setup a trust account where you give your name, nominal retainer fee, and proof that you owned $GME to establish standing in a suit.
edit: Align incentives.
edit2: To those who misunderstand, this isn't about hiring a defense attorney, this is about holding government regulators accountable in federal court if they chose to illegally or unjustly injure GME holders. That can only be done if GME holders have representation.
Edit3: FUCK ROBINHOOD
Disclosure: We are individual investors that like the stock. Each WSB user acts of his own accord with regards to his market activity. Fearing illegal or unjust SEC action and hiring counsel is our American right, as is our Freedom of Association.
Hey retards, I missed you all. Glad to be back online after my year long hiatus. I've been to rehab, I've lost custody of my kids, lost my house. However I still found a way to play. I've been shoulder to shoulder with all of you through this mess. I've been hammering way OTM weekly calls in volume. This is the most fun I've ever had.
Through the madness of this past week of trading I've managed to claw my way back from oblivion. $GME has done a couple 10 baggers for me this week alone. I love you all and I'm happy to see you all again. So many new faces. I'm proud of each and every one of you.
I'm currently holding about $50,000 in calls on $SLV ..and $15,000 in OTM weeklies on $GME. Rookie numbers I know, but I just got my legs back. I'll be running again in no time.
LETS FUCKING GO! GAMMA SQUEEZE UNTIL THEY BEG FOR MERCY!
EDIT: Thank you for the outpouring of love and support, It is actually giving me goosebumps reading through the comments. I feel like I just came home. I'm going to bed but I'll try to keep up and respond to everyone. God speed and have a BEAUTIFUL FUCKING FRIDAY!
EDIT #2: I didn't think this post would blow up like it did, I don't have the time to go through every post and thank you all individually while deep dicking the market with OTM calls so just know that if you post here I can promise you I read your words and took them to heart.
EDIT #3: I literally cannot smoke enough weed to calm down right now. I feel like I have rocket fuel in my blood.
Closing thoughts: My calls on $SLV (Ishares silver trust) are going to be the biggest fuck you to the entire banking sector when Precious metals squeeze and bring down fucking JPM and all the fucking twats who are trying to hide inflation behind the curtains while they raid your fucking pockets. FUCK THOSE FAT CAT MOTHER FUCKERS
None of this is investment advice. This is my own personal commentary and opinions on the fucked up state of the market.
The good people of r/wallstreetbets are, at the best of times, a group of people colluding to invest their money in ways that maximize profits to everyone in the group. In other words, they’re a hedge fund. Between them, they realized that they have control of enough assets to make a meaningful change in a stock price, and they used that to artificially raise the stock price for GameStop, costing people who bought put options billions of dollars. What they did is almost comically simple.
Now something tells me that, throughout all of stock market history, this scheme wasn’t thought of for the first time in the past few months. If a bunch of disorganized Reddit accounts can manipulate GameStop’s stock and make money in the process because they think it’s a funny meme, then certainly hedge funds (which are essentially more organized versions of r/wallstreetbets) have been doing it for years.
Remember to hold and not sale!
Source >According to former NBA champion and no. 2 pick Darko Milicic, this new display of strength also showed that Jokic is so superior to Gobert that if the French center gets a contract of 205 million, then the Nuggets big man has to sign for half a billion.
>“We must be aware that money is the basis of NBA’s existence. If Gobert is worth that much money, then our Jokic should sign a contract for 500,000,000 dollars. That’s how much better he is than Rudy,” Milicic said to 24 Sedam.
>“For them [the NBA], marketing has always been in the first place and for the league to make it a show business as much as possible. Those numbers that are turning around today are simply unreal. Yes a lot is spent and has to come back but to give so much money to someone is totally insane,” Milicic added.
>“I’m very happy for him because I know that he loves basketball, he’s dedicated to it and it can be seen that he’s very different from another NBA stars,” Milicic said. “I know how important money is there [the NBA] and everything revolves around it, and Nikola enjoys basketball and it can be seen on the floor. A totally atypical basketball players for their conditions who has showed the budding stars, who people see as some aliens, that they are not.”
>“Everything comes back to Nikola, for the hard work he invests, and it is very important to me that he is still so modest, that money is not his priority. He still enjoys it. It definitely differs from other players.” Like Hall of Famer Dino Radja before him, Milicic expressed his disdain for “modern-day NBA and how offense-dominant it is, describing it as unwatchable.
>“I feel sick when I see that a game ends with 300 points. So what were they doing on the court? Some hate to return to defense, “camp” on offense and they really care of what . To me, it’s all a disaster. To be honest, I can’t even watch basketball like that. I am aware that the NBA wants such a game, but it loses its meaning. Run and shoot and nothing else. That’s not the point, at least when it comes to my view of basketball.”
There you have it, the champ has spoken lmfaoooo
I recently became a millionaire this past month at the age of 29, but realized that my life has not materially changed in any way. I still have to continue going to my day job as I can't afford to live off my investments in my HCOL area. I've done some calculations and my fatFIRE number is 7-8M. I would be able to live very comfortably on that number and could splurge here and there but I would still need to budget. With inflation, that number could be 10M when I turn 40 in a decade. This is also assuming that I stay single and/or have no kids in the future.
Growing up, being a millionaire was always viewed as extraordinary accomplishment and it still is, but today a million dollars doesn't take you very far. The term millionaire was created in the 1700s or 1800s. Adjusted for inflation, a million dollars in 1900 would be worth around 30M today. I don't think you need 30M to be considered rich, but a millionaire is not what it once used to be.
