    Bubble has already popped, and the stocks are rising because a company shorted an insane amount of sales and other people realized they could fuck them and make money off that (short squeeze). So it's market stupidity but not the kind you're thinking of.

    So how many people are about to find out the reason day trading is considered gambling

    Depends on when they sell, because the price was only $40 on Friday at opening and was $20 a month ago when this whole game began. If people dump now they still get out with 50+% profit (unless they bought today at $100. Those guys are fucked).

    E: price is now at $60, just below close on Friday. First people losing money except the guys who bought in today. E: and it just jumped to $72 again. Wheee!

    This is the inherent problem with a market that allows short selling in general.

    Maybe folks shouldn’t make big public position about the fact that they are shorting massive amounts of a stock!

    Also the entire fucking market is fake.

    Shorting is not market manipulation. Neither is mass, organized, decentralized action, but it's closer to market manipulation than shorting stock.

    I think you could at least reasonably argue that a semi-organized action from the sub (they had threads on it and everything) about purposefully driving the price up could be considered deliberate manipulation. But also the entire thing is extremely dumb and someone trying to sue "a bunch of dickheads on reddit" would be hilarious and please just fucking do it I need this low stakes incredibly stupid shit to laugh at after last year.

    shorting isn't, but the regulations are archaic and do not account for the fact that major investment firms recommending widescale shorting absolutely affect a stock adversely and is potentially as manipulative as decentralized grass roots pump and dump

    the stock market is fucking stupid 3-cup-monty

    Isn't one of the shorters infamous for basically shorting stock for companies he considers "weak" then producing financial videos declaring as such from his place of "authority"? That seems pretty manipulative to me.

    adventure just means point and click games

    where you point and click on enemies to kill them

    I have often described playing a sniper in an FPS to be akin to playing a point and click adventure, where the only item you have is gun and the only action you have is shoot.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    playing a few minutes of RE7 in VR is one of the worst experiences of my life

    like i know some people like scary things but I'm pretty sure if I was strapped into that thing for five more minutes I would have just died

    Like if you haven't lived in the rainier parts of the American southeast I can see how it might seem excessive, but no during every part of the year that isn't, like, January, you are just constantly damp. Mold is everywhere.

    Oooh anyone looking for a tactics game, I loved Wildermyth when I played it last year and I'm assuming more updates have made it better.

    The overworld map gameplay was a very fun light strategy layer.

    not

    really?
    0 is the not spencer estate and is about leeches
    1 is the spencer estate but the only murder family is wesker and even then he barely murders people and you don't find out about him being a weird uber clone til later and Alexandra Wesker until rev2
    2 and 3 are raccoon city and involve no murder families
    CV is definitely a weird incesty murder family kinda sorta
    4 is about las plagas but nobody is family
    5 is racism disease and flowers but you do find out wesker is actually spencers clone and then kill wesker
    6 is bad
    7 is murder family
    rev1 is jills dumptruck ass and chris wanting to save jill yet again
    rev2 is about the opposite of murder family except for alexandra but the rest of her family is dead

    Yeah, basically manipulation is present at every level from the big stocks down to your pinks.

    Shorters get effed, they use reddit enough to enact their own manipulation all the time.

    Oh man Shining Force brings back memories.

    I can confirm that WarGroove is good! It is closer to Advance Wars than SF/FE due to each map having an economy and production rather than a set number of units.
