Blogging Will Be Light This Week

The blog is an antiquated form of content distribution. I get far more feedback on my 10 worded tweets than a 1,000 word essay here. I get more replies inside of my chatroom, The Pelican Room, in one hour than I do in a month here. In the olden days, the golden blog era of the early 2010s — the blog was abuzz. People clamoring for more, threatening to suck their own dicks based upon market moves. Comments were 100-200 people deep. The only time I was able to conjure up that sort of reaction from the silent Bobs reading the site was in 2016, when I errantly delved into politics. You only commented because you were all ginned up with MSNBC and Fox News talking points.

Alas, life is too brief to have a platform that divides people. I am merely a trader/entertainer/aspiring software developer/writer of prose. I do not ever intend to divide the audience along political lines again, only, perhaps, by their IQs and maybe even getting rid of fat people.

For the next few days I will be attending to a family emergency. I won’t burden you with the details because it’ll only serve to somber your mood. I will not be taking my laptop, so if I write anything it’ll be from my phone. I will most likely be checking into Exodus for trades. Since I am 45% cash, I have very little to be concerned about.

My parting advice.

Reduce your carb intake.
Rediscover your manhood and go lift weights.
Stop drinking.
Learn how to cook and cook well.
Read and write, be curious.
Love the people around you. They won’t be here forever.

    Dr. Fly hopeful positive thoughts go out to you and your family. Find some solace knowing that these emergencies eventually happen to all of us too.

    Sorry to hear this Fly. Hope you curl up with the ones you love, bull your way through, and know there are legions of us that wish you well.

    Also, I can’t believe I’d forgotten about CAP! Thanks for the blast from the past
