Edit: a third of your life sleeping, nicely pointed out to me by the dozens of comments.
Sup, honorable apecitizens! Recently I’ve been working on this fascinating piece of TA, and now I am finally ready to share that with you. I am so confident in it, that I dared to put my beard (which I have for five years already) on the line! Worth your full read, I promise! I decided to structure the analysis in the following way: first we'll take a look at the VW short squeeze, revisiting its origins and background as the very first step of the discussion - in order to better understand the fundamental context of TA; after that I'll lay down the main technical parameters and frameworks, through which the GMESS thesis will be dissected, applying all of those to VWSS and explaining the TA core on the Volkswagen example; then, the process will be repeated, but this time TSLASS anatomy will be elaborated upon. Finally, all of the data accumulated in the process, as well as the major findings made, will be applied to the current technical state of GME, in order to construct at least a potential forecast and the probable price action. Buckle up and eat a crayon, let's start.
Oh, and one more thing! I really encourage you to dive deep into the ANALysis with me, because the thesis can only be understood if all of the technical factors at play are considered in the sharpest detail first - and then in the aggregate: zooming out and looking at the bigger picture through the prism of coincidences, interdependences and probabilities. Dafaq did I just write? - Dunno, but that's exactly what I meant!
(Not a financial advice, as I am not a professional advisor, just an amateur ANALyzer)
Remember, when VW became the most valued company in the world for a brief wild period of trading? I bet, Pepperidge apes remember. The squeeze played out right in the midst of the global financial crisis, and such an occurrence was fueled by a curious background scenario, orchestrated largely by one very interesting person. Back then, the former President of Porsche, Wendelin Wiedeking (must be a cousin of Battlefield Counterstrike), was pursuing a goal of taking over Volkswagen. In... keep reading on reddit ➡
Edit: I'm signing off now. Thanks to everyone for all your questions and kind words. I hope to do another AMA soon! If you want to learn more about language, linguistics, cognition, and culture, check out my podcast series: The Story of Language podcast with Dan Everett
Some of the things that you might want to ask me about are:
The four decades I have spent working on about 20 Amazonian languages, including living over 7 years in villages of the Pirahã people, along the Maici River in the Amazon jungle.
Jungle experiences, including attacks by large anacondas, Amazonian giant centipedes, Wandering spiders, jaguars, pumas, and so on. I also have had all three types of malaria of the Amazon multiple times, including once when I had malaria, vivax, and falciparum simultaneously.
I began my career in the Amazon as an evangelical protestant missionary but became an atheist, which caused severe problems in my family, and led to loss of employment as a missionary (who needs an atheist missionary?)
I have a 15-year running debate with Chomsky in which he (and others) have called me a charlatan, though many other linguists, anthropologists, and cognitive scientists agree with me. If I am right - I am - Chomsky’s principal theoretical works - that language is innate and that all human languages have recursive sentences, are wrong.
In my book Dark Matter of the Mind: The Culturally Articulated Unconscious, I created a “ranked-value” theory of culture and how culture and language build each other, a cognitive symbiosis.
My most recent book, How Language Began, argues that language is a human invention, that it is over 1.5, probably 2, million years ago. I have followed up on this with an archaeologist co-author, Dr. Larry Barham, in which we use data from tool construction and treatment to argue that Homo erectus had language. More and more data from many other scientists shows that language is far older than our species.
My daughter and her boyfriend celebrated Easter with us (me, my husband, and our son/her brother). I asked her boyfriend to stay in our guest room, as they aren’t married yet and my husband and I believe it’s inappropriate to share a bed before marriage. Neither her or her boyfriend said anything at the time, but later it came up that they don’t visit more often because we won’t “allow” them to sleep together.
I think this is ridiculous. After all, it’s our house and our rules. My daughter agreed, but then said she’d still prefer to sleep with her boyfriend and thinks our rule is what’s actually ridiculous. She then tried to tell us that they still respect our rule. I pointed out that she was clearly lying about that, since she was withholding her very presence from her own family. I said she was punishing us for having a very reasonable rule, and that she obviously doesn’t truly respect “our house, our rules”. She changed the subject then. At the end of their trip I asked when the next we’ll see them again, and was told “maybe the 4th of July, unless [they] make plans with [boyfriend’s] family first”. When I pointed out she was still trying to punish us (who waits three months in between visits to their parents?), she just left.
My husband feels that I’m right and our daughter is being unspeakably rude, but my son thinks we’re in the wrong and it’s “not a big deal”.
She’s 25 and he’s 26. They’ve been together for three years and living together for two. I didn’t include this because the rule isn’t based on their ages or if they’re cohabiting, so I didn’t think it was important. They will be allowed to share a bed under our roof once they’re married and not a second sooner.
Some people seem to think we’re upset that she’s choosing to stay in a hotel room instead of with us. This is not the case. She’s choosing to avoid seeing us at all, instead of spending time with her family.
A lot of people are under the impression that my daughter and her boyfriend visit every three months - this isn’t the case at all. They usually only visit 2 or 3 times a year. I could understand before, with the pandemic, and before that they were in college, but we expected more frequent visits now that they’re not as busy. Her brother manages to see us once a month, so we know it’s not too unreasonable of an ask. But she certainly doesn’t visit every three months. If she chooses not to come in July, we won’t get to see her until October at the earliest.
Phones and network down. Completely saturated at 5x bandwidth. No network tools would work because of the 800M mdns traffic that was choking the life out of everything else.
Had it fixed twice and it would start up an hour later so six hours on the road for this one problem.
Once I identified the switch involved by using a reverse scream test (unplug switches and see if the screaming stopped) I had to go through 48 ports of
Unplug cable, wait 60 seconds to see if traffic stopped. Plug in cable. Wait 120 seconds to see if traffic started up again.
Eventually identified the port, (if only I had started at the other end) it feeds to one of the rooms too sensitive for IT to access so I don't have a key. Nobody overnight has a key. This ain't getting fixed tonight. They'll just have to wait. I've picked locks a lot harder but without my picks I'm not going to try.
I have an hour for the drive home and I'm not going to make it. Time for a parking lot nap, but I have to drive somewhere that isn't infested with denizens of meth before I'll pull over.
My husband M32 and I F26 both work. We used to work together on chores and\ cooking. But recently he has been doing pretty much nothing. Note I'm pregnant and I feel sick all the time. Despite that I do all I can. He lost his pet (bird) 2 months ago and that's when he stopped doing anything in the apartment. I understand he's grieving but I started thinking he's using the line "I'm grieving" to skip chores. He works 3 days a week. I work long hours (nurse) and everytime I come home to take care of everything. I kept my mouth shut thinking he's depressed and in grieve but he goes out with friends. Laughs on SM. Plays boards games and watches Netflix nightly and is relaxed to the fullest.
Last night I came home at 9pm. He already had dinner and left dishes in the sink. I cleaned up. Ate dinner and went to bed. He was already asleep when I walked in. The conflict started when I saw that my side of bed was wet. I woke him up to ask him about the huge stain on my side of bed. He told me he spilled milk while he was watching YOUTUBE on my side of bed and forgot to clean it up. I was stunned. I yelled at him and asked him if he was serious when he said he'd clean it up tomorrow and told me to sleep on it. I started calling him inconsiderate and quite frankly a user since he keeps arguing that I'm cruel for not leaving him alone to grieve his beloved. I told him he didn't care that much about his pet since he's having fun and playing games. He looked at me shocked. Asked if I was done with my lecture then he couldn't believe I questioned his love for his pet. Then went outside.
We pretty much haven't talk since then. I slept on the mattress on the floor since the bed socked the milk stain. He took the sheets to clean them up and I felt guilty for what I said to him. He seems hurt and acts as if he is shocked by what I said. Amita here?

" Also, the one talking about Citadel's total short positions is full of ridiculous assumptions. While it is interesting to see what Citadel's short position value was on 12/20/20, OPs leaps of faith using that info are incredibly shaky (ex. " assuming 50% of these short positions are in GME"....whoa, wait what?).
Please review and add a disclaimer." - u/justsaysso
" Don't get ahead of yourself, fellow ape. That's the amount of all their short positions combined, not just GME. Granted, it COULD just be GME, but it's highly doubtful that is the case. Either way, that was how many months ago? They've had plenty of time to keep digging that hole. PLUS, that doc only shows us their reported short positions. Them illegal naked shorts aren't going to be accounted for. Ya know, cuz illegal. THAT is the number I'm most interested in, though we may never get to know the truth. " - u/Bradduck_Flyntmoore

Just had to put our 17 yr ( and 5.5 mo) old dog to sleep. Her bad days out numbered the good - she was sneezing blood and having airway obstruction issues from a tumor, lost tons of weight. We did everything to give a proper send off. Spent a day at the park, got her takeout for breakfast and dinner. Spent the past few months taking her on trips, she met her first horse and chickens.
Then - the experience at the vet just tossed that all out. They strapped her to a stretcher, didn't want her walking around or off the stretcher because they didn't want to dislodge IV - which, I get but why not hold her?!? Our poor pupper was so anxious and couldn't calm down. We wanted the end to be comfort but she just went being afraid. My husband had her since 6 weeks old, I came along at age 8 or 9, so I had him sit in front and had her head petting her while I hugged her. But she just wanted out.
I truly recommend having someone do this at home, on your terms.
Not a post fishing for sympathy, simply what I wish I knew beforehand to help people not make the same mistake.
