left twitter spent a fucking week constantly hyping up stock trading as a form of praxis and is now completely silent as r/wsb turns into a repository of suicide notes. just so fucking disheartening

cw 

a handful of opportunists made a lot of money while a whole bunch of ordinary people lost their savings, their parents savings, their student loans. zero hedge funds were harmed in the process. mission accomplished

re: cw 

@FirstProgenitor @garfiald gamestop went from $450 to $90. So a bunch of people who bought into the hype are down a lot of money

cw 

@garfiald to their credit, the actual /wsb long-time members had plenty of posts that were like "Look, this is a place where we go in on crazy long shot schemes, try to corner gourd futures, and then laugh at each other when we lose money. Beware"

cw 

@garfiald Any time friends would be like "yeah, hell yeah, stick it to the wall street guys!" I was just like "Lol, the hedge funds are just going to short at the new high and make even more money when it crashes, while all the people who invested more than they could afford will lose everything."

@garfiald it would have worked honestly, but they were naive enough to assume that finance would not just cheat and fuck them over to save one of their own. Melvin capital got a 2 billion bailout
