I'm still working on the wish poster. Haven't been doing much in illustrator; except for art to print on fabric. I've been sewing masks, mostly.

I last left the drafts like this... looks a lot like John Doe, though. lol The 'hands' draft - you need to imagine planets bubbling up and floating off. I'm still learning in both graphics programs... slow going. I think I'll try doing a line drawing by hand and ink-in like the professionals... scan into pc and add details, color, etc. We'll see.

Ha! That's a polite way to tell me that I'm annoying. Nah, I'm done for now. But, I ain't leaving until I get my 10K.

Ah! It's all good. I should have known given that it's usually the 12'ers and a few NY-ers (aka sneaker bot boyz) that can be little shits. It's actually a good thing that I my social media experience started, here, on EB... gave me much thicker skin. So much so, that FB gets to be a bit sickening sweet, sometimes. I can only stand so much niceness.

The entire shorting saga going on right now with the hedge funds is pretty fascinating.

That shiz is so dumb I can’t stand it. Fortunately it’s also hilarious. #winwin

I say lets open bets on when the dump is going to take place. Today or tomorrow?

Pros: melts are going to be epic. Cons: not sure I will have time to follow.

P. S. Without saying, ragrets I am not the one who got rich off it.

Its awesome. They cost some rich folks a bunch of money. By driving up the price they forced those big money investors who shorted the stock to buy stock to cover the shorts. This essentially made them throw gas on the fire that was burning them.

That said, its money losing time now. Hopefully those that pulled it off are now shorting the stock. Get rich on the way up and richer on the way down.

Stock down 20% today. I think the game is over. Its much like a ponzi scheme. Those that bought in t $300+ are going to be the people that don't see their money back.

They're still not covered and they're buying more shorts from what I gather. There's people in other countries involved now, it's just getting started.
A public relations nightmare

Who is "they". If I cared more I would short the stock at $300. Its not the end of the beginning, its the beginning of the end.
