Weekend Links – Things Aren’t Always What They Seem Edition

Written by

I'm a member of a diverse group of people with a common interest. I've found that situation often leads to one or two people who are "a little too different" than the rest to be openly accepted. There was one guy in our group who always brought up really bizarre topics that the majority would consider extremely inappropriate. Other conversations seemed to lack what many would consider a grasp of logic. I think the group would consider him the most eccentric they've ever met. It got to the point where we wondered how it is possible he functions in day to day life.

This took everyone by surprise and a couple of people were a little unsure if we are in a recession or not. He then proceeded to explain briefly why he thought we were in recession. And everything he said made sense. I pressed him for his thoughts a little more and he went into the SocGen rogue trader, Ben Bernanke and how his performance has been, the rising price of gold, and his use of covered calls. His favorite investment, a specific ETF, is up 17% in 10 days.

Sometimes genius sneaks up on you... just like these links...

    I don’t think it’s fair to mention it if someone in the group is reading. It isn’t important either way.
