In like a hurricane! Out like a...
Can’t wait to find out! We watched tv until the power failed then stood outside on the front porch with the neighbors on tornado watch. Exciting stuff! At least two sizable twisters passed closer than I feel comfortable with. They both passed us by several miles while wreaking havoc in a few nearby towns. For scale, I would prefer my nearest tornados to maintain at least a two state separation at all times. Multiple collapsed houses, flooded highways, businesses, and a few fatalities.
The human mind both puzzles and fascinates me. So many are creatures of habit such that even when our normal route is clearly impassible, in a potentially fatal sort of way, some will elect to press on based solely (apparently) in the unshakable belief that there is a road somewhere under all that swiftly moving water and by the gods themselves the waters will part and allow them safe passage! In most cases, the waters do not part and we view what should be comical images of individuals clinging to both their beliefs and trees with panicked looks on their faces as they demand to know why the rescue team is taking so long to attend to their personal needs. “I’m a taxpayer after all. Why should my own stupidity be held against me?”
I hold myself to be a deeply compassionate man. Anyone may see an injured child or some frail and elderly individual and believe that they feel and show compassion for their plight. Of course this compassion is of an ordinary and very unremarkable nature. No medals will be awarded or accolades rendered for empathy to the pain of injured child.The truly compassionate human must in times of moral crisis be able to resist the urge to stand upon both the moral and physical high ground while laughing and pointing at the soon to be actually, factually drowned human rat clinging to a tree as the tail lights of his sinking vehicle bob on by. I’m an educated man, intelligent and erudite. Note my flowery phrasing, the elegant use of commas and parentheses. If you listen closely however you may catch me at an unguarded moment as I mutter, just under my breath, “Dumb ASS!” It’s hard to be my best self at times but be assured, I do try, I do try!
Hey will ya lookit that! Another positive week in the game. Not as impressive as last week but I’ll take what I can right now. I’m clinging to a few trees myself here…
High Tide (HITI) bolstered their lead with a solid gain this week as they fended off the continued advance of IQstel (IQST) who gained another spot to move into the number two slot. Mind Medicine (MNMD) also posted a gain but was unable to resist the advance. In fact, an encouraging solidity was noted across the top six spots this week with four gains and two losses of less than one percent! The recently uplisted drone company Dragnfly (DPRO) had the big gain this session and jumped three spots. SmartMetric (SMME) also posted a solid week and gained a position. Meanwhile there was a lot of mumbling and stumbling around in the lower third of the board as the minus eighty percent class did little to distinguish themselves.
And so, as the winds of Ida fade and the morning air turns crisp and refreshing, we look forward to continued clear skies and gentle breezes as we march resolutely on… To the MOON!!! (I don’t know, all the kids are saying it these days)
