You have the right idea, however in my mind that was premature. I'm not sure all the news is priced in. Just today it was learned that it wasnt just 500,000 American VW/Audi's but 8 million worldwide. There is going to be much bigger implications and bigger fines from multiple countries (France, Germany, EU, South Korea are all pretty pissed as well). So it will drop even more before the bottom hits. Remember the old adage, dont try to catch a falling knife.

Most of my investments are safe, I have a shitload of money in bonds and boring index funds for example but I do reserve some money for opportunities like this one. I also invest with an experienced adviser who steers me away from emotional stuff and has reasonable fees. He says this is a good short opportunity and my risk is minimal in terms of the cash I've put into it with a strong upside. Sure it can go lower but I'm going to make money on this so I'm not going to be too upset over the lost potential.

I always reserve some play money for stuff like this, in 2008-2010 I had a very respectable gains thanks to people like cutter panicking

Edit: and its up $20 overnight, that was easy.

...its like asking AMD to have a decent OpenGL implementation.

Ouch, man. That was brutal. Might as well ask AMD to make a competitive, power conscious processor while we're at it.

Oh right, AMD makes CPUs. Totally forgot hooah!

Bought a bunch of VW stock, don't get opportunities like this very often. Cheating or not, they're still more efficient and it will rebound.

Thats a fools errand, video drivers are insanely complex and built upon a mountain of legacy. "Fixing all the bugs" is chasing the white whale or put differently its like asking AMD to have a decent OpenGL implementation.

is it really that hard for you to understand how people could play a game that is just mediocre or a way to kill time? you honestly think people have to love every game they play? shit - some people play games they hate specifically because of that

its pretty sad you cant realize that - those are your "tears" there, buddy

Hahah no, I am pretty much saying they will do exactly that - bitch and moan then buy it anyway. It's Fallout 4, everyone here is going to own it

Bethesdas design decisions are totally irrelevant, people will just change the game to play how they want like every other Bethesda game. Skyrim was pretty bland without mods and everyone loved it, this will be no different.

Yeah Drew is an excellent writer. They need more like him and far fewer like Mac frikking Walters.

Would you say your hatred is best represented by the color red, blue or green?

Nicely played sir.

The idea that someone can nostradamus the market is hilarious, there are way too many factors to make any sort of accurate prediction in terms of the date. Governments and major hedges often have no idea, let alone some random guy. Conveniently when people are making such predictions the dates are too far off for most people to remember they were wrong and call them out on it. Or they play revisionist history with the prediction or its pointlessly vague. Then the cycle continues. People have been making such claims forever and all have been full of shit.

I got bumped from one (thanks Titans) but I'm still kicking in my other survivor league thanks to a lucky pick with the Raiders. I got absolutely decimated in all of the pick ems but at least it was fun, some of those games were fantastic.

This dovetails nicely with this reddit discussion I was reading earlier about how matchmaking is killing online gaming communities and clans. A lot of online play now just feels geared towards treadmilling badges and XP rather than group play.

Yeah, I guess they shouldn't have been selling those pumps at their store, just made Brady angry. Dude is a force of nature, he threw for something like 450 yards yesterday.

Sad about about Romo, I hope that doesn't sink the Cowboys for this season. So many upsets last week, great week to watch but a tough week for pick em. I was at a house party on Sunday, guy had his receiver hooked up to a projector outside and it was a riot. Lots of upset gamblers hahah.

Find it odd that ARK is on the list. It is still a very buggy mess that they still have NOT patched.

It's an early access game that is being updated regularly. Think before you post.

Eventually, meat and dairy prices will be too expensive, and most people will be defacto vegans.

I don't see that happening any time soon and people already pay a premium for meat in many places.

Well, I had KC in our pick'em league last night -- but I don't feel too bad since I had Peyton in my fantasy league despite his week 1 performance. So, I came out even overall....

Yeah I did something similar for mine, got away with it and lost at the same time. I have too many leagues going on this year and need to drop some, its getting hard to keep track between 4 pick ems, 2 fantasy and 2 survivor leagues.

Some annoying choices this week, I am really iffy on the Ravens but even moreso on the Raiders. Also I have no faith in the Giants so I'm going with my gut on that one despite my head saying they're the better choice.

Nah we're pretty busy these days so I'm trying to be more choosy with games. Maybe XCOM2 though, I really enjoyed the first one despite the warts and lack of randomized maps.
