Before you spend another day hosting your shill hedge fund buddies to come on the air and demonize r/wallstreetbets I hope you read this.
Your contempt for the retail investor (your audience) is palpable and if you don’t get it together, you’ll lose an entire new generation of investors.
I keep thinking about these funds that are short GME like your boys at Melvin Capital / your coverage of this subreddit and I’m getting madder and madder.
These funds can manipulate the market via your network and if they screw up big because they don’t even know the basics of portfolio risk 101 and using position sizing, they just get a bailout from their billionaire friends at Citadel. Then they have the nerve to turn us into public enemy #1 just because we believe in an underdog company getting a second chance.
We don’t have billionaires to bail us out when we mess up our portfolio risk and a position goes against us. We can’t go on TV and make attempts to manipulate millions to take our side of the trade. If we mess up as bad as they did, we’re wiped out, have to start from scratch and are back to giving handjobs behind the dumpster at Wendy’s.
Seriously. Motherfuck these people. I sincerely hope they suffer. We want to see the loss porn.
Final update for the true onions: All the cooking is done. I have another wonderful pot of caramelized onions. The smell really wasn't too bad once the cooking finished. Since we've got a huge orange tree and Costco sized vanilla extract, I put a big handful of orange peels, a couple generous swishes of vanilla extract, and some water in a pot and let it simmer. The house smells great. I will never forget you onions out there.
Update 2: After doing a majority of the cooking in the instant pot outside, the onions are now on my stove. Luckily I just got a new range hood less than a week ago so that's on full blast. Guess what we've decided to include in dinner tonight? Hint: it's onion rings.
Update: Day 2 is upon us. I just finished cutting up about 8 quarts of onions. I have an instant pot coming up to pressure on my porch as we speak. A fan is blowing in the direction of my cutting station to the window. I immediately washed all my cutting equipment and wiped the counters with a mix of dish soap, water, and lemon essential oil. I promise I’m not a crazy essential oil lady, I just like the smell and it makes a good cheap all-purpose cleaner. See you all in about 2 onions for another update?
Edit: Thanks to everyone for their suggestions. I have decided to postpone the onion marathon until tomorrow due to me being drugged up on Benadryl and not wanting to enter an onion-induced coma. Tomorrow is a new onion. Wish me onion. Onion.
Does anyone recommend any places I could call for a Roth IRA?someone recommended Edward Jones.
Edit: thanks everyone I have chosen to use Vanguard!
A while ago I read an article in the Official Xbox Magazine where an editor said that the open-world aspect of singleplayer games is just a natural evolution/progression of traditionally 'liner' game experiences. Then, just recently, I was reading PC Gamer's review of Mafia: Definitive Edition in which the reviewer said, "Make peace with the fact that Mafia is a heavily scripted, totally linear, story-led shooter and you can just sit back and enjoy the ride". This could just be me wrongly assuming, but I get the feeling the reviewer was critiquing the game's more linear nature as a bad thing (or at the very least a taboo thing). I've actually disagreed with this notion for a while now, as I've grown to (slightly) loathe the open-world singleplayer games that have bloated the market for years now.
To me, open-worlds aren't the end all format for singleplayer games. I believe that more linear singleplayer experiences are simply a different genre of video games, and can co-exist side by side along with open-worlds. The best analogy I have as to why I believe this, is that sometimes I want to binge 8 seasons of a tv show and take in the story, characters and lore at a slower, more methodical pace. But other times, I just want to sit back for an hour and a half and watch a movie that gets straight to the point with hardly any down time.
Video games are the same way. Open world exploration can be fun in and of itself, but most of the time I feel like it ruins the pacing of the story and side-character development in most games. The way I usually play it is I do a main mission which advances the plot and furthers the stakes, which takes the player into a new area of the map. But instead of being able to advance the story immediately so I can stay invested, I have to do every side mission/activity I can because advancing the story too far might lock out certain missions/areas of the map. What results is a game where the over-arching main plot is so poorly paced, that players often times don't care about any of the characters or events that happen within it.
The biggest issue about open-world games however, is the fact that they're such huge time sinks. If you're in quarantine like I am at the moment, open world games can be a lot of fun. Playing 6 hours a day, every day, and taking my time is making my second playthrough of Red Dead Redemption 2 a lot more fun than the first. But if you're an average adult with some amount of responsibilities, playing... keep reading on reddit ➡
Cannot FUCKING believe this subreddit spent months shitting on GTA V when it’s leaps and bounds above Cyberpunk in terms of an open world.
