A great introduction to Greek mythology

Yesterday I finished reading Mythos by Stephen Fry. I (18/f) have always been interested in the idea of learning about the Greek myths, but never really knew where to start. Most books on the topic seemed a bit daunting, but I believe that Fry has provided a perfect first read. No prior knowledge or understanding was required to appreciate the myths and to enjoy not only the stories but his light hearted, humorous writing style. I would truly recommend this book to anyone who wants to take their first step into the world of Greek myths.

Options: A beginners guide (with greeks)

Alright retards, I've seen a big influx of new members here throwing away money on investments they know next to nothing about. This is meant to be a basic introduction to options prices. I am not a financial professional and this should not be misconstrued as investment advice.

This will probably be long so TL;DR: Stop throwing away your money and learn about what you're buying. If you don't want to read mike and his whiteboard is a good resource (I am not affiliated in any way).

Initially wrote this at the end but I think it's better at the beginning: Practical Applications, General Advice

General pointers for the newbies. Most of the option trading shown on WSB is OTM naked calls or puts with expiration < 3 weeks (FDs). These are like lotto tickets and are not considered responsible investments by anyone, including us. They are retarded and we know it. You should know it too before buying. Theta is usually insane and probability you make money is slim. On the flip side, selling these options is sometimes considered ok but is often referred to as picking up pennies in front of a steamroller due to the low return for high risk. If you want to preserve your hard earned money, make responsible plays. With options that usually means ~3 months minimum expiration, and strikes somewhat close to the money, if not in the money. Consider the implications of IV in your trades, and make sure you understand the mechanics of the options before opening spreads.


Options Basics

An option is a contract that gives you the option to buy (call) or sell (put) 100 shares of a stock at a certain price (the strike price) at or before a certain date (the expiration date). Options are priced per share, so a call with a listed price of $1 will cost you $100 total for 1 contract ($1 x 100 shares). For American style options (what most of you are trading) you can exercise at any time before the strike price, while European options (which are sold for major indices on American markets) can only be exercised on the expiration date. That doesn't matter too much for our purposes but I'll get into that later (EDIT: I never elaborated. This is really only important for [box spreads](https://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/boxspread.asp#:~:text=A%20box%20spread%20is%20an,strike%20prices%20and%20expiration%20dat

How come the Vikings in Valhalla look like they are out of a fairytale yet the Greeks and Egyptians in origins and odyssey looked real/believable.

I’m really scratching my head on this one. I would say Ubisoft has a pretty good track record in trying to make the settings in the AC games as accurate as possible. but the way the Vikings are portrayed in ACV is almost comical. It feels like Ubisoft went straight to Hollywood for their history lessons and used shows like The Last Kingdom or Vikings as a template.

I’m baffled by this because they did a really great job at depicting the English people and society and even went as far as connecting the dots with the Carolingian armor but then you have these rugged barbarians that are supposed to be the Scandinavian people that look like the descriptions written by 9th century monks.

Ubisoft really had an opportunity to do a faithful depiction of the Norse people but it’s a shame they decided to take the route that Hollywood deemed profitable.

Full fat Greek yoghurt is the bomb.

In my household, we eat a LOT of yoghurt. In marinades, to thicken curries, in baking, with granola... You name it. So much so, that my husband and I switched to 0% fat in to reduce our fat intake without jeopardising the recipes we love too much.

We've done this for years that we haven't really though much of it and enjoyed many dishes with yoghurt since.

We recently bought some full fat Greek yoghurt as we are introducing it to our baby. We bought a large pot as we thought it would be nice to treat ourselves too seeing as we need it for the little one anyway.

Hot damn. It's only plain yoghurt but it tastes so ridiculously decadent and creamy. We'd forgotten what we had been missing and I feel like I have been cheating my taste buds for so long.

Already made my best butter chicken in years and today, I had the most delicious granola, fruit and yoghurt for breakfast.

I'm not looking forward to when we use whole milk over our semi skimmed. It will be the cups of tea from my childhood and I won't want to look back.

Any of you have anything similar where you've had a "reduced x" version of something for so long and then realised the error of your ways when returning to the good stuff?

Greek Mythology: Aphrodite is the one making Zeus cheat on Hera, as revenge

It's the biggest running joke in Greek Mythology: Zeus has hundreds, even thousands of affairs (many of which were basically just rape). That's a massive embarassment to Hera. The goddess of happy marriage and faithfulness has a horrible marriage with a husband who cheats on her. She's the laughingstock of Olympus, and becomes horribly bitter and jealous. Early in her life, she's portrayed as more kind, and loving, before going full on baby murder later on.

But, guess who on Olympus literally controls love and desire? That's right, Aphrodite. Notably, before Aphrodite became an Olympian, there aren't really any instances of Zeus being unfaithful to his first wife, Mentes, or during the start of his marriage to Hera. Then, along comes Aphrodite, who had the ability to control love, as well as her son Eros (aka Cupid), capable of making anyone fall in love, even gods. There are a few myths about what happened when she arrived, but they all boil down to one thing: Aphrodite was forced to marry the ugly Hephaestus by Hera and Zeus. Obviously, for the goddess of love and beauty, being trapped in a marriage with someone like Hephaestus was a massive insult, and she was known for holding grudges.

Aphrodite used her powers of love to make Zeus constantly cheat on Hera, humiliating her just like Hera had once humiliated Aphrodite.

I think Greek would be pretty cool for a Pokemon region

There's so much to do with the many monsters and Greek gods, the amazing architecture with those old ancient temples and buildings, the stories of the many myths... lots of ideas and things to come up with!

Things I think would make for some cool Pokemon:

  • Hydra (Giant serpent that can regrow it's heads.)
  • Chimera (a lion/goat/snake hybrid)
  • Minotaur (Half man half bull guy)
  • Medusa herself (the next waifu pokemon just like Gardevoir)
  • Cerberus (Giant dog with 3 heads)
  • Cyclops (Bonus points if it's mixed with an elephant cause their skulls were mistaken for cyclops)
  • Griffin (Giant bird/lion thing.)
  • Hippocampus (A horse with the body of a fish)
  • Ouroboros (snake eating its own tail)
  • Pegasus (Flying horse, maybe as a regional Rapidash?)
  • The 12 Zodiac signs as well Ophiuchus, the 13th (Those would be legendary Pokemon)
  • Also a dolphin cause we want one (How it's not a Pokemon baffles us)

And I think the gym leaders based on the 12 main gods of Mt. Olympus.

(8 gym leaders and 4 elite ones)

  • Champion would be based on Zeus himself.

So, what do you think. Any questions.
