MCPLUNGE INTO THE CLOSE?

For the first time in my life I’ve gotten a stiff neck. I bought a new mattress and fancy fucking pillow and it destroyed me. Now I can move my head about 5 degrees in each direction. If you’re talking to me, I’d need to move my entire body to see you — because my neck no longer accommodates such movements.

This is typical and also ridiculous, and here I am in pain — blogging like the wind.

I sold off some stuff today, booked gains and losses, and generated cash. With said cash I will do nothing. It’s also worth noting, I took out a hedge, in the hopes the market will plunge very hard into the close.

Bottom line: Markets do not bottom and Friday’s certainly not ahead of Labor Day weekend.

    I have been through that many times so I bought a new pillow last week and so far, so good. Bedgear Storm 3.0. I bought it at PC Richards. They make it in 0.0, 1.0, and 2.0 which are all relative softness measures with 3.0 being the firmest. Worth a try. Returnable within 30 days.

    About a year ago I bought a full sized mattress in a box (hybrid) for the guest room.
    I opened it up and the thing expanded out and it was huge. Turned out they sent me a king size so I contacted customer service and after some discussion (can’t exactly stuff it back into the box for a return) they shipped me a full size and said keep the king size as a gift.
    Anyway, it’s a hybrid (cooling gel and memory foam on top of cylinder springs) and it’s the best.

    Fly, I’ve gone no pillow for the last 30 years and rarely get a bad neck.
    Only the pillow makers benefit from pillows.
    Put your noggin directly on the mattress.
    Thank me later.

      You must be one of those dudes I see around town with no neck. If you sleep on your side, you need head and neck support. Back or stomach, maybe you can live without a pillow.

    When I’m in the market for a new pillow – Naturally, the 1st place I think of is: iBankCoin! THE best pillow advice site, bar none.
    Unfortunately, as the Fly said – if you’re over 37.5 yo; it’s already over for you. Save the $200 on the pillow and just roll your wheeled chair over lemming cliff or a hollow-point to the brain stem will do it.

    Sorry, this will be off topic:
    Back up the truck for silver stocks. The bugs have been saying this for 30 years. Will they be right this time? Eric Sprott may go from 1 billion to 50 billion if this happens.

    Nothing to do with mattress or pillow. It’s called stress. Get a massage and a good glass of wine.
