The Important Matter of Outstripping You

Some are very good at explaining their ideas and methods, by example. It’s their gift of patience, greedy proclivities, or the fact that no one else will listen to them, that leads them to such a profession. Mind you, being a teacher is not a noble profession unless it’s done with good intentions. There are excellent teachers on this site, like ChessnWine, Ragin Cajun and Scott Bleier, who can walk you through ideas, like pissing in the breeze with ease. I, on the other hand, do not teach because I do not like to tell you anything.

It all started when I was a young boy, throwing 90mph fastballs at the heads of unsuspecting rivals. When I dropped the hook on them, making them swing and miss like school girls in the boys gyms class, they’d ponder how I learned to throw such a pitch. As far as I viewed it, it was none of their concern. As fate would have it, by senior year, my rotator cuff gave way, also leading to the birth of my quest towards financial wizardry. But, to be perfectly blunt with many of you (not all), I loathe the idea of teaching anything, for I feel as if my life is not complete. I realize this is a character flaw, which in turn keeps the fire in my stomach burning red hot. I can only tell you my habits and allow you to rent my financial tools (The PPT); but I am not ready to profess anything, as long as fuckers like DAVID TEPPER are out there banking billions through weak performance data.

In the world of twitter and smoke with mirrors, many claim to be the real deal. Being that I am mostly anonymous, I cannot pass judgement on the respective track records of any of my rival bloggers out there. However, I will tell you, emphatically, they are indeud dick suckers of the first order. Most of them have never held proper corporate employment and tend to live a very, shall I say, laissee faire life, sucking on twizzlers whilst declaring market wins. I am very sorry to tell you, your financial advice is unpolished and woefully inadequate, especially compared to the stuff published here on iBC.

If I was in your shoes, a Joe Public reader of sorts, I’d declare all other financial websites to be null and void, immediately, as their panache simply doesn’t match up to the Clam-like times we live in now. If I was you, I’d most certainly cancel any and all subscriptions held away from iBC and donate said soft dollars to Woodshedder, so that he too could celebrate Christmas this year.

In the big scheme of things, we’re all dipshits, some more than others. Everyone has an opinion, which most of the time is nothing more than a vote into a collective train of thought. There are very few out there who think outside of the cluster-fuck, if you know what I mean. I tend to abhor mankind, which is why I am able to outstrip you, every step of the way.

      Did I ever tell you the story the time some jackass hit back to back grand slams off me?

      His third time up I literally pitched under hand to him, like a father pitching to his 2 year old daughter, and struck him out in three pitches.

      That’ll learn him.

    best thing you said in this column was that you have a nice staff of blue chip bloggers who can show us the ropes.

    While we are sharing, my greatest sports moment was destroying an opponent who (unfortunately for him) was skating up center ice with the puck and his head down. My team cheered like I just scored the game winner. Poor guy was in the locker room vomiting after the helped him off the ice.

    As much as I love twitter, it sometimes make me wish we could time warp back to the early 1980’s. Back when the only way Tom, Dick or Harry had any info was to pick up the phone and ask his broker… for a small fee of course.

    Nowadays, everyone is a financial genius. The best part is, when they are proven wrong, all they have to do is change their screen name and start over.

    i loved baseball too. i was a picture…the best thing i liked about pitching is that i felt in control..the batter had to guess what i was going to throw. i would do all sorts of things that looked looked like i was putting something on the ball, or i would just burn one on the inside and move them off the plate and they thought i was intentionally trying to hit them, maybe i was.. Because i was the best they were intimadated of me….i lost some of my speed with shoulder injuries too…but still could strike them out, and had them climbing the fence wanting to kill for smoking them in slow motion.

  19. Seriously

    I have not done a thorough investigation of many other websites out there. Quite frankly, I don’t have the time, so by my actions I have declared other financial websites to be null and void.

    Where else can you get a quick, essentially real-time, read on the market, from a guy who breathes this stuff? Seriously? NFWhere. That’s where. And done with style and humor.

    I may take a ride on the weinermobile tomorrow.

    Hey fucker, I had a great Christmas last year! However, if the dear reader would see to canceling all outside subscriptions and indeud piling those subs into the Power Dip, Christmas would most assuredly be a tad finer in 2011.
