Why are companies wasting money on TP and paper towels commercials right now? Is anyone really holding out for Bounty or Charmin?

Ok, COVID swab came back negative, COVID antibody test came back negative. Literally WTF? Nobody has been more cavalier about this than me. Mind you there was a huge disclaimer basically saying the antibody test is full of flaws.

You were the guy in the tacticool gear leading the lockdown protests?

I just bought Charmin for probably the first time ever, because it was the only brand available.

A friend in Brooklyn is convinced that he and his wife had it but their antibody tests came back negative. They told him the test is very unreliable and they should retest in the Fall.

They are playing NBA2k game simulations on ESPN2. It's called NBA2k league. To be clear, this isn't gamers playing each other, it's 2 announcers calling a video game simulation of a game (season?).

There was another thing I didn’t get about those NBA 2k attempts to fill in for the actual NBA. They had a players’ tournament and seeded the players according to how good they are in real life. I think the top seed was Kevin Durant.

i mean...does KD even play video games? Maybe he does but apparently there were serious gamers (but lesser name players) in the bracket and he didn’t even win a game.

Pro athletes would never stand a chance no matter how good they are against real gamers. It’s like letting pro gamers play against KD in real life.

People who make $2/3/400K+, are in charge of large departments and hundreds of millions at work, but can't pay their credit cards on time/in full because they're too unorganized/lazy. Just a really weird dichotomy.

I had a very good CFO once confide to me, "You know, I don't run my personal finances like I do my organization's" when she told me how tapped out she was.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
