Have decided I will only trade henceforth when bored out of my mind on pitch conf calls. Is that an institutionally fundable strategy?
Bored comatose during a conf call last week during market meltdown, I bought some SPY calls. That’s worked out okay. pic.twitter.com/fjdmYQvF7W
Kudos to local Apple store. After my asshattery yesterday in cracking my iPhone 6 scrren, they comped me a new one. Not broken it yet. Yet.
Coke, McDonald’s, etc MT @herbgreenberg: I can’t recall a time when so many big brands have stumbled and conceded their irrelevance at once.
Cracked my iPhone 6 screen already. I’m hopeless.

I’m intrigued by these new notifications apps, but most don’t work for me. I don’t want raw numbers or binary changes. I want anomalies.
A lot of ebola confusion is definitional silliness about word “airborne”. Look, I’m airborne too, just not very far without a plane.
Unproductive day. I blame @codytownsend for making me watch MSP’s super “Days of my Youth”. Cody’s chute is sick, like a railgun outta hell.

My Macs and iPhone sync with Google is crazy fragile. If anything breaks, I’m always so screwed. Complete mystery.

@pkedrosky I am a relative child (25) that shouts at his parents when they text at the dinner table. I refuse to eat until they put it away.

Just walked by restaurant table where three “adults” were on their phones texting & watching videos, while a child was sitting bored. Awful.
I see that @EpicureanDeal is back on Twitter again. Trying to remember what I had in the betting pool.
