I thought that the continuing cockeyed investment saga of Mr. X was over with the recent postings of ineptness. Instead , the story gets better.
Mr. X called me yesterday excited about his latest venture. Having earlier in the week fleeced a senior citizen out of a couple of hundred bucks in exchange for some manual labor around the old geezer's home, X is now setting his sites on cornering the market of ESP by investing in a company known as Jedi Mind (To our 2 faithful readers: truly, I can't make this stuff up.) Once again, extensive analysis, raging greed, and blind unawareness, has led X to a stock of a company that develops software for thought-controlled technologies, allowing the user to interact with the computer and other machines through the power of the mind. TRANSLATION: Give us your money, you will never see it again. Having now taken a position on 60,000 shares, I mentioned to X that I would think that he would now be a member of the Board of Directors or at least part of the Executive team. X replied that since share were only worth .01 cents each (that's right, one penny!) his $600 stake probably wasn't going to sway many decisions made by the company.
Now I, for one, hope that X hits it big with this one. I don't know, though. Apparently he missed this warning sign. Regardless, all of this has cemented my choice for tomorrow's Jukebox selection. I encourage you 2 faithful readers to return tomorrow and realize the connection.
