The Wisdom of Looking Like an Idiot Today

8 posts in this topic

For those burned by the last crisis who purchased precious metals near their zenith in 2011

 

 

ahahahaha yes you would feel like a tool if you bunkered down 3 years after the disaster.

 

 

And Bitcoin! From almost out of nowhere, a new alternative currency skyrockets

 

 

so long as it doesn't get stolen of course... what's that? one of the biggest heists in history is unfolding _right_ _f*cking_ _now_ and no one is talking about it?

 

 

those of us who had warned our friends.... The Madness of Crowds... They strive to suck in as many participants as possible before collapsing....

 

Ever wonder if maybe, just maybe, you personally _are_ one of the crowd? Or do you just claim you are not despite the evidence?

 

 

The resultant carnage catches the masses like deer in headlights.

 

 

No it doesn't. The masses just write articles like yours where they pray for a future and deny the present. If you first bought gold in 2011 you are a f*cking tool. If you were already in the game then you might have paused your buying for a bit and be ready for a new round of buying shortly but if you weren't in the game then you are almost by definition a bubble chaser that is behind the trend, as exemplified by your lack of buying anything that did go up from 2011 til now (note _I_ didn't buy anything investment wise from 2011 til now except my cazy idea (which is worth a little more now but not much more than inflation) because I think reducing debt is a better investment in this environment)

 

 

The takeaway here is that the wealth destruction caught most investors flat-footed

 

 

Like you with your 2011 gold purchases I guess...

 

 

Exercise the wisdom to look like an idiot today.

 

 

Objective achieved I would say.

 

 

Develop an income enhancement plan

 

 

Well duh. Even I have been saying this over and over for a hell of a long time. Without being a smug dick about it I would say that if he at least linked to something free (not a paid consultancy company) on a forum somewhere he might actually have a faint tinge of credibility saved from the vacuous feel good denier sh*te that his article is.

 

He might be able to copy and paste Kipling better than I can write original poetry but I am guessing I outearn the f*cker and totally destroy him in terms of investment return.

 

So my advice is, don't read his sh*t, read mine and be an obnoxious drunken white male 30 - 45 with superior skills in an area no one else wanted to learn when you started 20 years ago.

 

The advice is equally useless but at least my posts are amusing and include less poetry.

Nah, don't worry tor... you're not smug...

7331 skillz are good. It's just that most professions are pretty crowded these days. Top guys/gals keep getting the good jobs, but the average Joes struggle. It's not easy for youngsters to get started in law, journalism, or creative industries.

So what are the next hot professions? Plastic surgery for pets?

My vet (which seems like quite a budget one) has a visiting orthopaedic surgeon, so why not.

 

My pussy has very small tits so maybe I could get her a boob job for xmas.

I think the unbundling concept has a lot going for it. Become a specialist in a certain field then work as self employed and contracting for smaller jobs. Has a ways to go before it is a functional way of doing things easily but the people that get in first are obviously going to have first mover advantage.

It's cool that you can actually still see the stolen bit coins gradually getting laundered but no one knows the identity of the thief (for certain). The problem with bit coins is that no law enforcement agency is obligated to chase down the theft of a currency that competes with those of governments. Is the theft of cyber money even a crime?

If it is taxed it becomes a crime. It is taxed. Governments defend their own stuff. It might take a while for them to work out how exactly to tax it and to tell their enforcers that they want theirs but it will happen.
