Anytime something that should happen doesn’t, my friends and I scream out ‘XCOM NUMBERS!!!”
Nice, learned a new term today. Do you know a good way to see total short contracts still out there? I don’t know enough about that side of the market to see if short sellers all bailed out.
Tesla is still very much in the growth phase. Every dollar coming in goes to a project that will attempt to earn more money rather than giving their investors dividends.

I was also quite confused about the cost of the procedure, and what exactly the sculptor did. First it seemed like he was going to make her hot, then they said, nope you just get a crappy dress, then she decided to do it anyway on her own terms, THEN a few episodes later shes blaming the school for what they ‘took’… Read more
