There is much gnashing of teeth from the idiots that sold weekly CCs on Monday afternoon thinking they were getting sweet, sweet premiums for tendies.

Indeed. Speaking of which just sold some on my NCLH. I'll admit owning this has not gone as planned as Delta variant is not doing wonders for travel type stocks and the premiums are not all that. Still, I'll hold these bags indefinitely as I'm confident there's a pop in there somewhere in the next 12-24 months.

How did we miss the Bowlero SPAC? Somehow roughly 300 bowling alleys generate $850M and is going to be valued at $2-3B.

First, how is the average bowling alley bringing in $2.8M? I tried to find one near some places I have been and can't believe these numbers. There must be some city in American where one of these alley's are just raking in the cash.

Bowling alleys are always a fairly depressing place.

That strategy has been in use for some time. I have to admit I think many people are like Charlie Brown having the football snatched by Lucy. No matter what legislation is enacted people are going to figure out a workaround. Even people with only a little more money than Joe Sixpack figure out workarounds. Back when I was still a CEO that had a charitable foundation under me the new Trump/Repub taxes immediately created the two year giving cycle of 0%/200%. People would give nothing year one, and double year two, so they could get over the basic exemption cap and get some itemization through donations in a two year cycle.

A friend once summed it up brilliantly, "the smartest person in the room is never going to work for the government."

Crazy week. When I sell a CC I automatically put in a BTC order of .01 or .05 (depending on the way they're priced you have to go in .05 increments.) Monday a bunch of 8/20 calls closed out. Today I'm reselling 8/20 CCs on a bunch of things. Double dipping the tendies!
