...and I don't really have to point him out, do I? There are few activities I would find more screechingly boring than reading about the stock market. Granted, if I had money invested in the stock market, I'd find it a little more compelling, but is it worth selling my soul? I think not. I mean, really, does anyone really think they're "earning" money by playing the stock market? Is there anything but greed going on here? Am I being unfair? The stock market is an illusion, it's a game for wealthy people. Am I wrong about this? What am I not seeing? Obnoxious people making fortunes by doing absolutely nothing useful. And then devoting huge chunks of their day to reading about their money. Reading about their money! What have we come to? Ah, the Radicalization of Sparky. Who would have thought?
