    A Yahoo post from NEXT WEEK

    My crystal ball allowed me to download this post-from-the-future. Very telling.

    Subject: I just don't get it!!!

    This POS has the worst fundamentals! A P/E over 2000?! My god! How could it possibly trade over $66??

    And today, when other stocks are down, it still goes higher! I'm ripping my hair out here folks. I thought shorting was easy money!! But I'm getting slaughtered!

    I keep averaging up (shorting more) but now I'm margined to the hilt and the f'ing thing keeps going up still! Arrrrgh!

    This makes no sense!! What is going on?? Who could possibly be buying the POS?!

      Wait, wait. EXpig is trading under 56 not at 66? I don't get it.

      Maybe there are an infinite number of different realities and I must have jumped timelines! I mean, this reality has me MAKING money from my short. And Bolotomus told me last week it would see 66 this week; and he could never be wrong. I mean sure there may be many rational reasons to explain EXpig being at dropping to 55, and going lower; but bolotomus has a GUARDIAN ANGEL on his side.



      Or maybe, just maybe, Bolotomous was just wrong! (and will continue to be as long as he remains long EXpig)

        NOW NOW NOW...
        I never said it would see 66 this week, I just said that I received that odd message from my crystal ball. I bet that when the crystal ball said "next week" it really meant the week after next week. You know how foward-thinking these crystal balls can be.

        As far as you "making money on your short" well that's just wonderful. I guess you must have made a whole point in the last few weeks... or even TWO! Wow. What is that, a one-percent gain, or a two percent gain?

        Considering you went short during the worst week in the market since 1989, and managed to fall pretty close to breakeven, I'd say that this is proof that there is simply no money in short-selling EXPE.

    • You sound a lot like a guy named Greasycakes from the EMLX board. I'm sure TImberlaine remembers him, wink wink, nudge nudge.
