    Almost a year, since i joined ET.

    A good source for knowledge and practical advises, conversations related not only to the finances itself, but politics, healthy mindset and hobbies like fitness or arts (music).

    90% of the time, when i asked for something, people didn't let me down, with their great responses.

    And there's another field where ET - can't let you down. It's fun.

    Oh yes, i had my share of laugh, by reading some of the comments.

    So, here's few of anonymous, funny episodes, from the last 6 months.

  8. investments and trading is not a 'game'
    it's a matter of life and death. same with companies who go bankrupt, they lay off workers etc. and people lose their jobs and die! many people commit suicide from losses from the fraud market so it is SERIOUS!
    this is not a joke! and one reason people lose they start to gamble in the market for 'fun'?
    Go the casino or play slots if you want 'fun'. you get kicked out your condo if you don't have money to pay rent. or the bank will forclose your home or bank call their loans and company goes chapter 11 and shut down business so it 's SERIOUS!

    It takes a small grain of salt, to see fun everywhere , be it universe itself :


    or even death :
    (last words of famous dying people)

    Composer Jean-Philippe Rameau objected to a song sung at his bedside. He said, “What the devil do you mean to sing to me, priest? You are out of tune.”

    Marie Antoinette stepped on her executioner’s foot on her way to the guillotine. Her last words: “Pardonnez-moi, monsieur.”

    Leonardo da Vinci was also overly modest, saying, “I have offended God and mankind because my work did not reach the quality it should have.” I guess the Mona Lisa isn’t good enough?

    Louise-Marie-Thérèse de Saint Maurice, Comtesse de Vercellis let one rip while she was dying. She said, “Good. A woman who can fart is not dead.”

    Richard Feynman, a physicist, author, musician, professor, and traveler, died in Los Angeles in 1988. His last words? “This dying is boring.”

    source :


    thus, if folks like that, could see a bright side, even in the face of death, surely there's one in finance as well.
