WannaBe: So the other day I saw that Instant Pot is on sale at, bought myself one to try it out. I added some water and tried to smoke it. I am very disappointed at the result.

  WannaBe: Dang, someone is givin' me the finger again... 🤣😂

  WannaBe: Time to go to the confessional...

Forgive me for I have 'sinned'. Remember when I was posting all those GME comments? I actually bought <ONE> share, $226 when it was on the way down, just to see what happens.

Weeks later, sold it this morning at $289, and I see it is down to $260 range...

How is Cuomo doing in NY? (My state is doing so well!!) Everyone happy? He'll be our president once Biden is done? (After 4 or 8 years?)>

How sad. Derivatives are very risky, unless you REALLY know what you are doing. Even then, they are still somewhat risky.

That person could have just put all the money in VOO or QQQ and would have had a wealth-building investment, instead of a casino experience.

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: The Black-Scholes pricing model for options results in ever-increasing value erosion as the expiry date approaches. I took a class on this stuff, and it was enough to convince me I should just stick to investing in stocks.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <TGA> I sell Covered Calls, and once in a while I will do a Cash Secured Put. Otherwise I take my premiums collected and buy more stocks. =))

Covered Calls have been very, very good to me. (I don't do those vertical/diagonal/calendar spread or Butterfly, Iron Condor/PMCC crap...)

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: <WB> I used to write covered calls, but after having shares assigned a few times, only to see the shares keep going up, I decided the premiums were not worth the opportunity cost of just owning the stocks.

Plus, all of mine are dividend growth stocks, so as long as I keep the shares I get paid every quarter.

Cash secured puts are great in principle, but again I would just rather own the stock when I wan to own it.

  thegoodanarchist: <OhioChessFan: Got my second Pfizer 2 Mondays ago.>

Am I the only one who doesn't want to be vaccinated?

Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <tga> I'm not getting the vaccination either. If I get covid I will use it against my enemies. "Excuse me friend. Remember the thousand dollars you owe me? Well, I forgive you. Here, take this handkerchief and wipe away your tears."
Premium Chessgames Member
  diceman: I don't, especially with summer coming up.

I've never gotten the regular flu shot.

The only time I've ever gotten the flu is when I was an active OTB chess player, during winter tournaments.

My sister-in-law had Covid in early January 2021. According to my brother, she was coughing right in his face and he didn't get it.

Premium Chessgames Member
  thegoodanarchist: Since I made radical changes to my diet, I don't get sick anymore.

I eat foods that are high in vitamins A, B spectrum, D & E. (Not synthetic supplements!)

Plus, I spend time outdoors almost daily, soaking in the sun. Life is good. Thanks be to God!

  WannaBe: Shot #1...
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <WannaBe> Did it hurt? Don't lie to me, you know it hurt. Don't be acting all macho-man on me. Say it loud, it hurt and I'm proud!
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <TD> It hurt(ed) less than my own (bad) jokes... Felt the jab and then it was over. I don't even know if it was 10cc or 15cc or one gallon.

Then I sat and waited 15 minutes (I answered 'No' to all the allergy/allergic reaction questions), but some were sent to the 30 minutes section for observation.

Then I left... Stood in line for about 40 minutes, for a 5 minute shot and then waited 15 more minutes.

Good thing I brought "Fierce Patriot: William T. Sherman" biography to read. People probably thought I was nuts, someone brought a BOOK!!

Imagine that.

  WannaBe: Maybe France and Belgium can settle it the "Old Fashion Way", declare war. 😂
