  1. Moneys or stock chart wise~

    • Ok… you got me there. Hadn’t thought of that one. There goes world domination. But… people use it a lot in daily life when it’s not related to stock charts.

  2. I want to put forth a thesis on this one!

    Sun = Awesome

    Amount of sun at the top of a hill > Amount of sun at the bottom of the hill

    => Top of the hill is more awesome than bottom of the hill
    => going downhill is not cool

    Prove me wrong :o

Work in progress... not home!
