IF you think Bitcoin is going to the moon what kind of special moron would you have to be to buy a Tesla with Bitcoin?

I was hoping I could just pay with OTM GameStop naked calls.

You know all of the naked shorts will be right eventually. Gamestop is a broken business model the entire community is going digital and all of the publishers want what is theirs.

You had to know dragging David Morgan's old ass around on the pump it up tour was bad karma. Many months later here we are.

I suppose a privately funded program that serviced only low-income whites would be frowned upon.

Totally joking. Never played GameStop.
Voodoo made serious coin on that.

I know just saying it is dead man walking.

You do realize that Amazon used to just sell books? They will have plenty of cash and little debt to survive. Now, I'm not sure if I'm completely convinced they will pull off the turnaround completely but they aren't going anywhere for a long time now. I'll probably hold a few shares for 20+ years.

I am however, losing a portion of those gains, by shorting the highly manipulated Autozone stock. Does anyone complain about that brick and mortar store? Hell no. And they have at least $3 Billion up to $8 Billion in debt compared to GME with $300 million.

What can they sell condoms? Gaming is going digital every publisher wants gamers to buy digital downloads from them exclusively. They are dead just a matter of time. Even if they can sell physical copies of games you won't be able to play them since they will require updates to play and guess where the downloads exist?

I'm not fan of either plugs, but depending on what I'm driving, I pay 2-5 cents per mile in fuel taxes. EV drivers pay nothing. In a few years, that's all there'll be if fed and manufacturer mandates stick. No matter who is running things they will get their pound of flesh somehow.

I'm sure everyone who makes anything would love to sell to their customers direct. That doesn't mean they can. There are all kinds of markets that they can still enter. Gaming is a huge and growing sector. They just need to find their market. It looks like they are moving into computer gaming and parts first.

Let's agree to disagree. You can game the stock price but the company is done. Nobody is hanging around for the final death rattle. Long term they got nothing.

With an influx of capital, some publicity and cultish following of autists, maybe gamestonk could reinvent themselves.
They have an audience, but can they offer products or service to make up for the broken business model?

Holy Sh*t, how do you listen to that guy? Talk about Zero personality! He could have a computerated voice read the script and it would be easier and more pleasant to listen to than that guy. Is the guy autistic or something?

Bear market?:Build:
What floats in a Bear market? Used to be precious metals. Used to be commodities; tangibles.
Now people are putting fake fiat into fake cryptos with their digital stimulus cheques, while billionaire fund managers smash metal markets in open defiance of regulators.
I’ve never felt like just selling it all and joining Zed on that beach for a skunky Fosters, but I’m close.
these markets suck.

This time it's different? I dunno, I think maybe we are just seeing a lag. ?!

BTW. Foster's isn't sold very much in Australia. We don't buy it. Bud is easier to find. Where I live the local micro brewerys smash the majors on quality and have a big share of the market. I kinda like that, lots of interesting brews everywhere you go.
