51 World Financial Group Meeting

                                One has infiltrated the World Financial Group meeting for the sole purpose of shutting it down.

                The leader is a liar.  She exaggerates.  She said that a guy owned the whole building.  He does not own the whole building, he just rents it out.  Owning and renting out is a big difference.  So the first impression is that of dishonesty.  She told one’s mother that this annuity was not taxed, but in fact it was taxed.  In her defense, one does not think she even knew that the annuity was taxed.  She does not get marked for dishonesty here, but for ignorance.  She is off to a rough start.

                The nice hair guy might be a good person.  People fall under two categories here: 1. they know they are lying but lie to you.  2.  They actually believe the bullshit they are spewing, thus making them uninformed.  One believes that the nice hair guy believes what he is saying.  He believes in the product and he believes he is helping people.  Ignorance is bliss and he gets a pass here.  One can tell he is honest by the questions he asks.  If he knew about the product, he would not ask about it.  His lack of knowledge proves his innocence.  If he knew all about the product, he would not ask about the question.

                The speaker was the most informed person in the room, but that also makes him the biggest bullshitter.  He knew everything about the company and product; he was probably the only one.  Whenever you asked him a question, he answered it honestly.  But sometimes when you do not tell someone something, it is kind of lying by omission.  During the introduction, he was only supposed to give his name, but he went into his life story.  And he would have kept on talking if the nice hair guy did not interrupt him and stop him.  Maybe the speaker is crazy or something.  A couple observations about the speaker: 1. He used a fucking cordless mouse as his ppt clicker.  After that, one went out and spent thirty dollars on an actual ppt clicker so one would never look like a piece of shit like that.  2.  He presented a ppt that had information from 2009.  What the fuck?  If one wants to succeed in business, one has to have updated information.  Ten fucking years ago, one has to assume any and all information presented was obsolete and useless.  He is either lazy or a scam artist.  But if he was a scam artist, he would have updated the data with recent year’s fake data.  This guy was off to a bad start. 

                The speaker’s sales pitch was too good to be true.  Maybe he was telling the truth, but if that was the case, he was omitting some very important information.  The things I grasped from the ppt: 1. it is easier to get an insurance claim than other insurance companies.  There is a scale of zero to three of incapacitation (zero being need no help, three being total paralysis).  One needs a level one to get an insurance claim (one is needs arm assistance).  One’s condition does not need to be permanent; it can be temporary to get a claim.  There must be some kind of fine print there.  One believes that getting an insurance claim must be very difficult or else insurance companies would be passing out money like candy.  2.  No lose annuity: he explained some annuities where it only gained, and never lose.  Any investment that is a hundred percent win regardless, always seems sketchy. 

                One’s grandmother was bed-ridden for around fifteen years.  One understands that humor is important in making a ppt presentation flow.  But making jokes about old useless people is somewhat in poor taste.  After some of those jokes, one wanted to say out loud that one’s grandmother was bed-ridden for fifteen years.  One wonders how he would do in a cancer ppt.

                My mother is still fucking brainwashed, maybe even more.  In this ppt, my mother found out that the annuity was indeed taxed, when she believed it to be untaxed.  But she also learned, one can buy annuities with cash.  When she heard this, she asked the boss with eagerness, like she was going to shell out another three hundred thousand cash for another investment.  The boss’s eyes lit up and answerer her, like she was going to swallow my mother whole with one gulp.  My mom is in way too deep, and it is up to me to pull her out of this shit.     

                Overall, one believes he has more than enough evidence to at least present a solid ppt to present to one’s mother.  But one believes she is too far gone and will not listen.  But all one can do is try.

                Currently one is You Tubing pyramid schemes.  One will be quite informed about all of this when this is all done. 

50 transamerica

                One’s battle versus World Financial Group (WFG) and Transamerica continues.  One has more or less finished one’s research on WFG and is now researching Transamerica.  One’s research comes from You Tube, while one is taking a shower or having a bowel movement.  One is also listening to an audio book about insurance, but not exactly sure if it is helping one in his quest.

                Research accumulated so far: one needs to keep insurance separate and investments separate.  The saying was: keep insurance insurance and keep investments investments.  A lady, smarter than one, compared putting one’s money in this life insurance versus anything else.  If one were to invest $40,000 into this insurance for ten years, to one’s recollection, one thinks he would lose $10,000 and end up with $30,000.  BUT if one would invest in a normal or better than average investment, he should make $60-$80 thousand in ten years.  If one would do the math, he would notice that not buying insurance would make more profit. 

                One is still researching for more evidence, but this is a great start.  It is enough to drive the nail down, but not enough to finish it.  My research continues.

49 Me vs World Financial Group, Transamerica

            Where should one start?

            The family sold the business of thirty fucking years.  What does one do for retirement?  How about get brainwashed and join a pyramid scheme?

            One’s mother has accomplished this.  She has worked hard her whole life, suffered from an abusive husband and a problem child.  If she wants to throw her money into the ocean, she has that right.  She started off with buying a small insurance plan, then she got greedy and eventually bought a million-dollar life insurance plan.  Holy fucking shit!  This costs fifteen hundred a month, fifteen hundred that this family does not have.  But again, it is her money she can do what she wants with it.  

            Then she wants one and one’s wife to buy a plan.  One must draw a line there.  Like a disease, that spreads from person to person infecting everyone, one must find the cure.  Enough is enough.  One is going to take precious time off his poker study and cset study to research this bullshit company and all companies associated with said bullshit company.

            One’s goal is to get one’s mother to find some clarity and stop putting time and effort into this project.  Most retired people go dancing or find hobbies, they do not fucking join pyramid schemes with money they do not have.

            So far: World Financial Group is a pyramid scheme, but is not a scam.  One can make money if they become a master recruiter, but the caliber of recruiter one must become is quite rare.  The product seems legitimate so far, but one must do a lot more research.

            One’s game plan: read the contract-fucking figure out what it means; audiobooks-World Financial Group, Transamerica, life insurance, long-term care, pyramid schemes; google and YouTube the shit out of everything; and infiltrate their bullshit seminars and maybe stalk some people in one’s mother’s line.  At the end, one will have a power point presentation to try to convince one’s mother to put a fucking stop to this all.  One’s mother has committed into this because one does not have the ability to support himself.  She has a fear that after she is dead one and his wife will starve to death.  One is the reason why she is going to throw all her money into the ocean.  One must make things right.

Fyre (2019)

Festival on Fyre

            Imagine paying four thousand dollars and looking forward to a dream vacation, but end up stranded, hungry, homeless, and in fear of their life.  This is what happened at Fyre Festival.  Who really was Billy McFarland?  Did Billy McFarland initially have the plan to defraud customers all along or was he just in way over his head?  What is the difference between the Fyre application and the Fyre Festival?  And finally, should one watch Fyre?

            Was Billy McFarland a genius?  Magnises was the first company Billy created.  It was an exclusive credit card targeted at millennials.  It was a sleek and stylish metal credit card that was used to get into special parties.  But unfortunately, Billy was paying for all these unique events with his American Express card and he racked up two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in debt.  Magnises was a genius idea, a huge success, but the outcome turned out to be a disaster.  It could have had a different outcome.  When people were debating whether to believe Billy or not, his past came up as the mastermind behind Magnises.  Billy used the momentum of the largely successful Magnises, to spear head into the Fyre application.  The Fyre application’s function was an easy way to book has been celebrities, because real celebrities do not need to be booked through an application.  Real celebrities use managers and real human beings.  This was a real application that was another victory for Billy.  He had a whole team with a year of progress on it with no signs of slowing down.  Then some guy gave Billy a small seed of, maybe create a festival to promote this fire application.  That idea blew up into what was known to be, Fyre Festival.  Whenever someone asked who Billy was, they answered many times, “Billy is a great entrepreneur.”  Not only was he a great entrepreneur, he was also a genius, but if he did not try to cut corners, he could have been magnificent.  His story was an amazing one, and one worth watching, and one would not be surprised if they made a biopic about him landing him even more money.

            From the inception of Fyre Festival, did Billy plan to defraud the world?  Or, was he this overly ambitious dreamer who believed all that he said?  The brain in the Duck Tales cartoon created these spectacular commercials to a product that did not even exist yet.  Everyone wanted the product, but the product was not even invented yet.  Fyre Festival was the same case.  Billy shot an amazing commercial for something that did not exist.  Everyone wanted to buy this product, but it did not exist yet.  He created a massive demand, then he frantically scrambled to create the product.  He did not intend to defraud his customers, he just made poor decisions and got unlucky.  First, he tried to book Norma’s Cay, Pablo Escobar’s tropical island, but he disobeyed a request to not call it Pablo Escobar’s island in media.  He was ousted from the island and had to find another.  He sold tickets without knowing the full logistics of the island.  He had overbooked the island and instead of giving refunds, he was just going to find a solution to his problem and make it work, positive thinking.  After that, everything just came crashing down: travel, food, housing, and venue.  He should have pulled out at any one of those failure markers, but he just kept on barreling through.  He had no money, all he had was entrepreneurship.  He got money for his dream through investors, and he needed his dream to pay back these investors.  If he backed out at any time, he would have been ruined, but maybe not go to jail.  If he kept going, there was a small chance that he would have made it and become famously rich and well-known throughout the entertainment world.  They alluded to the first Woodstock.  It was also one of the biggest disasters in history, but they pulled it off, and one does not remember the failures of Woodstock, they just remember how memorable and great it was.  Social media is powerful, and this will be a case study that will be examined in the future.  Fyre Festival was the first, but it will not be the last, and it is an interesting story to watch. 

            The Fyre application should have been Billy’s real dream.  Fyre application would have made Billy rich and elite.  Fyre Festival was the thing to promote his real dream, the Fyre application.  The tragedy of this whole situation is the Fyre Festival’s failure resulted in the Fyre application failure.  Fyre application was working and fine, but the reputation was just destroyed.  Anything with the word Fyre in it would never be touched again.  Surprisingly, Ja Rule was not harmed in this whole shit storm.  Not only that, he copied the Fyre application and now it is Iconn.  Iconn will be successful.  Billy McFarland is a star and there will be a sequel to something down the road.  One should stay tuned to see how his life unfolds. 

            Billy McFarland is a business savant and if he uses his abilities in an honest way, he will eventually be successful in something.  He has heart and ability and the refusal to die and give up.  A little Elon Musk is in him.  “I have to be dead or incapacitated for me to give up”-Elon Musk.  Billy’s dream was Fyre Festival, and he believed he could achieve it, but the reality was he did not have the ability or resources to complete a project of this magnitude.  He had everything to lose if he quit, and a very small chance of success if he kept going, and he chose to keep going.  The Fyre application was a victory, and is still a victory in the form of Iconn, but the Fyre festival murdered the Fyre application unfortunately.  Fyre is a five out of five stars and is worth a watch.  “I went home, took a shower, gargled some mouthwash, and went over there fully prepared to suck that guy’s dick.”-Andy King.

Bandersnatch (2019)

            Bandercrotch.

            .5 stars out of 5.

            What a pile of shit.

            If one would take the masterpiece of Groundhog Day, and try his best to fuck it up in every way possible, one would end up with Bandersnatch.

            Bandersnatch gets points for trying, but that is all it is getting. 

            One is eating breakfast and wants to watch the latest black mirror episode.  It happens to be Bandersnatch.  1.  You cannot watch it on Apple T.V.  Format not available or something.  2.  If one is to watch it on computer, one must click every so often to decide. 

            This movie is like the first horrific failure of Elon Musk’s rocket launch.  But the happy ending to this story is that eventually this concept will be something amazing.  But this current movie happened to be a colossal fuck up.

            This kid is in a Groundhog Day loop.  One has complete control over what he does.  If one does not make the correct decision, the move will never fucking end.  One feels like destroying his own computer in the middle of this movie. 

            Acting is whatever.  Stars are whatever.  Story is whatever. 

            There should be an option where one does not have to make decisions, so they can enjoy it while doing aerobics or jerking off or something. 

            Nice try Netflix.  They are not there yet, but they will get there sooner or later. 

            Not worth a watch unless one wants to experience what an annoying fuck up of a movie feels like.  If one does not make the correct decisions, the movie will run indefinitely, which turns out to be a huge pain in the ass.    

46 Write Well

            All-right motherfuckers, free fucking writing is gone.  One must take the CSETS soon, so one must up his writing English game into some formal shit.

            Six rules accumulated so far: 1.  No contractions.  Bye bye motherfucker.  One’s contraction days are over.  2.  No (there is) or (there are).  Use (many) and (much) Strong sentences are the way of the future.  No more shitty sentences.  3.  No (really, very, a lot so).  These words are weak and meaningless.  To throw them out completely will improve ones writing immensely.  4.  No passive voice, use active voice.  Things from now on are not going to be fucked, they will be fucking.  5.  Use strong verbs.  If the noun can be a verb form, just fucking use the verb form of the noun.  6.  No talk in the first person.  No more I, you.  One must talk in the third person from now on.  One is a shitty repetitive word.  Time to practice and write some amazing engrish.  7.  No small words, expand vocabulary.  Put one’s years of English experience to use, motherfucker

            Achieved seventh place last night.  Made the money, then went for it.  Could have probably squeaked my way further, but just decided to go for it.

            K10 (old guy) vs J8 (me)

            K10 limps in early position.  Many called.  One calls with J8 in small blind.  Flop was 10J10.  J8 ships it, K10 calls to win the hand.  Many handed, why risk tournament life.  1200 limp, around six players.  6k in pot.  Bet 3k to see where players are at, then give up hand.  Many players, likely someone has a 10.  Do not risk tournament life at the end.  Use guerrilla warfare and sneak way up to a chop.  Easy cheesy lemon squeezy.   

            First time coming back in a long time.  One is the most hated person in the local casino.  How is one supposed to write a journal without the word I: im-fucking-possible.  One day at a time, motherfucker.        

            Today’s agenda: doing poker, work out, and csets.

            Need to get caught up on movie/show reviews.  One is backed up.
