there's three bedroom places around here, I mean one of the bedrooms was once a garage and the other was a closet but it counts

some of them [but not many] cost less than a million dollars!

“get rich off other people’s money, not your own” is basically the first commandment of business

I know it’s just hilarious to see a literal billionaire complain about it since when you use other people’s money they tend to want a say about what you’re doing with it

Plank Walker posted:

not when that 4 hour meeting is your entire work week and you get to boss people around during it and can buy into the illusion that you're actually doing something to deserve making more money in an hour than the average person makes in a year

but at that point why are you even still bothering to performatively "earn" money? your money makes its own money

you could boss around your household staff or a bunch of sex workers or idk build a star trek bridge and hire actors to be your crew [and maybe also have sex with them] but gently caress why would you go and do actual business stuff? brain worms

I guess if your whole identity is "I'm a magic business genius" and you have no other life you'll just keep doing it but drat, wealth is wasted on the wealthy

yeah options and margin trading were originally ways to do small scale hedging like I buy $100 mil of stock A but I get a $5 mil put option in case it goes to poo poo but then some coked out financial wizards in the 70s were like "hey what if the risky part was the whole investment???" and the rest is history

Firefighters are investigating whether a Tesla vehicle found in the middle of a pile of burning debris caused a San Leandro metal yard to engulf in flames Friday afternoon. Alameda County Fire Department officials ordered a temporary shelter-in-place in San Leandro after responding to a fire at around 4 p.m. at Alco Iron & Metal headquarters near Davis Street and Doolittle in San Leandro. They said the fire was under control just before 6 p.m. Friday. Firefighters noticed the Tesla vehicle engulfed in flames in the middle debris pile, but said they are unsure if the vehicle caused the fire. The cause of the blaze was unknown. No injuries were reported Friday evening.

elon "elon musk" musk, like the rest of his loving SV ilk, doesn't believe in things like 'expertise', just inherent intelligence which can somehow be flawlessly, instantly brought to bear equally on any subject with immediate guaranteed success, and since he thinks he's always the smartest guy in the room, gently caress what any 'experts' might think

in popular culture I call this "magic smart powers" where characters in books/tv/movies who are smart are capable of literally anything, to the point that other characters will say things like "we can't try [thing], he's too smart for that to work" like tons of the folks we consider "smart" in our culture don't constantly fall for idiotic garbage like cryptocurrenncies, libertarianism or "limited edition" plastic figurines

if I could retain computer-toucher salary and some good computer-toucher-esque work while also becoming a researcher on organizational psychology and knowledge work, that'd be just peachy keen, I'd like that very much

yeah I took a few organizational psych courses and it's fascinating but the only way to make any money at it would be in consulting and basically helping companies be more evil [or just watching them ignore your good recommendations]
