TSX Set To Close UP More Than 100 Pts At a Fresh All Time Closing High Just Below 20,700, Having Also Set Fresh Record All Time Intraday Highs Around 20,724.



And yet, S&P 500 closes flat.  Y'all OK down there?

Did the price of moose meat go up?

If you convert it into bitcoins, used Ford f-150s, or bachelors degrees it makes more sense.

With new ones going for ~$30k I'm sure many would love to know the price for used ones.

I'd probably go with used bitcoins.

I've always wondered what would happen if you put a bitcoin on the tracks and let a train run over it.

I'm still waiting for Bitcoin presses to show up at museums. They'll stretch our your Bitcoin and emboss the name of the museum onto it.

You think I can sell my degree when I am done with it? I only need it for a few more years at most.

Looks like they're going for $80 +/- on eBay.

Seems like a poor return on investment. Especially since you can still get $40 for a withdrawal letter:

I'm in a medieval re-enactment group.  One person I knew back around 1978 learned calligraphy and calligraphed her own college diploma, then took a job overseas on those credentials.

If the train is named Ruby and runs on rails and crushes a bit coin, does it become c#?

Not that it makes it any worse, but I realized that's just the debt at the end and not the 4+ years and extra cash.

Ah, the glory days. That's an amazing story though and also hats off to medieval re enactment.

You can buy new fake diplomas for about $150 and even get college transcripts.

And that is why anyone who is verifying this sort of thing and knows what they are doing checks with the institution directly.

Good idea for a museum kiosk that creates an NFT with your name on it.

Well I just returned to civilisation after 5 days in the wilderness and realised I have more money after the trip than I had before I started.

I love this game (at least until the top is in).

Just go to your brokers website and there’s usually a pop up about losses and market risk.  Just click “I do not agree” to opt out of losses

Deadline tomorrow !!! Everything you’ve ever posted becomes subject to losses from tomorrow. It costs nothing for a simple copy and paste, better safe than sorry. Channel 13 News talked about the change in the top’s losses policy. I do not give the top or any entities associated with the top permission to suns to my money to losses, both past and future. With this statement, I give notice to the top it is strictly forbidden to be in or take any other negative action against my money based on this account and/or its contents. The content of this account is protected from losses. The violation of losses can be punished by law (UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute). NOTE: the top is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing your money to be subject to losses as well as inflation. DO NOT SHARE. Copy and paste!!

I believe in that case, you make a social media post identifying yourself as a sovereign citizen and declaring that market losses are not a legitimate function of government based on obscure tangential old laws, treaties, and correspondence letters. Works great for reducing your income tax burden too.

No because the top has been in that whole time.  Maybe you're just now figuring that out, but the rest of us have known for quite some time now.

Not too late, but I wouldn't go for worthless fiat currency.  I would invest in land on Mars.  You'll really not want to be on earth at all with all the death and destruction we'll see when the top is fully completely in.  It just so happens I have a few acres I could sell you.

I did some back testing, then I threw out some data that didn’t seem good. I’ve decided that the risk adjusted returns are much better for property on Europa.

I’m not willing to sell any, but I will sell you some call options.
