Getting a new phone today, might never be able to see you fine folks again. If that's the case, and this is goodbye, I just want you all to know that I'm truly happy to have known you all, and that the many years I've spent in this community will always be fondly remembered.
EDIT: Still works. I'll be here for a while yet, thankfully.
@FalconHalo, you can just download the app again can't you?
@The Puppet Man, As I understand, it doesn't work for some phones, due to the devs abandoning it. Here's hoping I haven't made a fool of myself with this though.
@FalconHalo, I see, best of luck
@FalconHalo, you could get a clunker phone, let that be your meme dealers phone. Make you cool in front of your friends when you whip it out.
@FalconHalo, good luck to you! My phone technically runs the app, but the keyboard covers up comments when I'm typing. This really is the best meme app, we hope to see you return!
@FalconHalo, Bit dramatic, see you soon
@FalconHalo, just transfer your apps from one phone to the other? Unless you are going from android to apple or vice versa, you can transfer your apps between phones. And in terms of your account, I've recently found out that mine is just linked to my Facebook which I did not know
@FalconHalo, ...and?!?! The suspense is killing me!
@goforthe2, Functions just fine on the new phone, thankfully. Just took a lot longer to set up said phone than I thought.
Someone explained this to me in really blunt terms. Basically, rich fvcks were borrowing money to buy and immediately sell GameStop stock, knowing it would go down in value, and knowing that buyers would see the decline and sell back ASAP at the lower price. Rich fvcks would buy back at the lower price, return the borrowed money, and pocket the difference between the price they bought it and the price they sold it (if this sounds like a scummy tactic that keeps the priveledged rich with minimal effort on their part, that's because it is). What r/WSB did was buy the stocks, then refuse to sell back. Due to the rich fvcks needing the money back because they spent money that wasn't theirs (that thing rich fvcks tell poor fvcks NOT to do because it's irresponsible, go figure) as well as the sheer quantity of people buying, GameStop stock shot up. Now said rich fvcks are fvcked. A small victory in the grand scheme, but a victory nonetheless.
A man and his foreign wife are having sex. When finished she stands up and lets out an extremely loud fart.
Her husband says, “Honey, what in the world was that?"
His foreign wife replies, “Front side so happy, backside laughs out loud!"
Whats complicated buy low sell high.
* cries as he buys high and sells low*
Stocks literally make no sense. If you aren't the primary share holder, you're holding onto a wasted piece of paper. They only matter when a company first goes public, after the initial stocks are bought, they don't actually do anything.
@bobs and vegene, what about dividends?
@MrJojo, companies aren't obligated to give dividends
@bobs and vegene, yeah but when a company does, doesn't that give the stock value?
@MrJojo, yeah, then yes it does
A stock is a life in super smash bros. When you get thrown off the stage you lose a stock
That's why I took my financial advice from Gremlins 2 and put all my money into canned food and shotguns.
