Dicks and Blogs

If I paid attention to what anyone said during my long and illustrious career as a professional blogger, I’d be dead, in jail, or maybe both. One of the wonderful things about blogging is having dicks read your work and then actively work against it — because in their minds — they’re doing something worthwhile.

Case in point, my recent foray into SOXS. It was a monstrous loss and it happened in the public forum. I was out there in crucifixion position asking for water, yet the commenters of the blog chose to toss popped corn at me and to hope that I’d die instead of opting to help me down. When I escaped the cross by removing the nails with my teeth, these same gents chose to take my place on the cross, in an effort to show me how great it could be up there, a natural tanning salon of sorts, instead of helping me with the gashes and the meat hanging off from what was once my left arm.

But see this is a Burdian’s Ass paradox, and the people now affixed to the cross will soon realize their dilemma. Who are they in fact betting against? Is The Fly even real? Did I ever take a SOXS position, or perhaps I only said I did in order to engender a popular response? Was their decision based upon a logical plane or muddied by the emotional fixation with proving I was wrong twice, first time in and the next time out? Moreover, do they think that I am an evil, black-hearted man, a cloth from their own wardrobe — thinking I want to see them lose too?

A man named Bob drops dead from a deadly dose of purple hammed burger. Phil watched the whole thing and was glad it happened. At the funeral, amidst a caravan of black cars, Phil shows up with a food truck selling nothing but purple hammed burgers. Bob’s mother asks Phil, ‘why come here and sell purple hammed burgers when you know my son died from them?’ Phil responds, ‘because Bob didn’t die from the purple hammed burgers — he died from eating too much.’

Bob’s brother pops his head in the truck and says ‘yeah, but you’re still an asshole, right?’

    Never apologize for, as Ray Dalio would put it, radical transparency. The only way we learn is by fucking up in a public forum. I’d love to see some of the mistakes made by your critics in their own accounts over the years. I’d be willing to bet some of them are divorced because of their own self-stupidity. Either that or just 20 something year old trolls managing five figure retail accounts.

    Dickery and Assholery are increasing, many folks see everything from Trump to Fly, Michelle Wolf or Maxine Waters, to Alex Jones…and think I can do this….they flop and are just being lazy in their expression of ideas and words.

      You preachy little hypocritical fuck.

      The US-sponsored slaughter in Gaza doesn’t bother Joyous. But goodness gracious, save him from naughty verbal expressions.

        Why do you come here with your anti-Israel nonsense? No one here cares and most of them support Israel anyway. Go find a site where your posts might actually have folks who support you.

          How the fuck is slaughtering unarmed protesters good for Israel? Let me explain something to you: support for Israel does equate to support for the Likud, for AIPAC, and for the handful of Jewish oligarchs who control our foreign policy in the mid-east.

      When you die, St. Peter will kick you down a flight of stairs directly to hell. That much is certain, @Fryguy15. You’re an evil, malevolent, man.

        Look man. I don’t wish you (or anyone for that matter) harm. I just call it like it see it. You had some unreal trades back in the day. Those trades were longer term and fundamental thesis-based. Once you deviated from that approach, it all became reactionary, emotion-driven crap. It’s difficult to be a jack of all trades and you were very good at finding those thesis trades. So, do yourself a favor. I bet your account is going to like it, as will your readers.

        PS, I don’t believe in St. Peter. And on the contrary, I was rather benign instead. I believe my comment was something like “that was the worst entry I’ve ever seen”
