I would keep using fingers, as well. Also, use a pick sometimes. Give yourself the widest possible array of options and approaches.
Good morning, all. Stay safe out there!
Man, just now seeing they announced a new MacBook Air. I must say I really like the specs to price on it. Too bad Iím still too broke and already bought a ThinkPad.

Looks like I'll have to sign up for Quibi
Disney Stock is super cheap John McClane could own Lucasfilm
Man, I am really liking this idea. I am going to do some research tonight on potential stocks to purchase. Let's go for that 30% return again!
I just checked: the stock is currently worth $0.41 a share. I bought it at $15ish and sold at $50ish.

Held it for 30 days. If that isn't the definition of manipulation I don't know what would be.
Well, it can't be any riskier than when I invested $2,500 of a loan into a junk pharmaceutical stock and made $800 in one month.

Stupidest and coolest thing I have ever done, and that stock is absolutely worthless now. Stock market is just straight up manipulation by rich people.

That's how they keep the poor poor.
Speaking as a former poor person, their plan doesn't always work.
