Schwab literally laughed at me and told me I was a Space Cadet for even thinking there would be a borrow available on Zillow shares.
Was at Sea World San Diego 2 weeks ago, it was comfortably full, but way short of normal for where things should have been this time of year. What I noticed was there were serious issues at the concession stands, some unmanned, others understaffed with broken soda dispensers. The Skytower and Atlantis rides were broken. The Skytower was reported to be so temperamental that they just have to rework the whole thing. And they should rename the Atlantis ride the Whiplash because that's what some passengers suffer from.
The Blackfish seemed really giddy about it....the opportunity to kill live game when all they get is Soylent Fish that the trainers pull out of an ice bucket. That's the answer Sea World morons....these are killers, let's see them in action....throw some penguins in there, how about a seal for them to run-down. No tricks, let them do what-they-do and have little Johnny and little Maddie cover their innocent little eyes. These whales aren't the Disney characters they would like you to believe they are.....
You may not believe this, but Schwab just won't let you make trades they don't approve of. I try doing something and get endless critical messages from Schwab. I just want to scream " F off, you bloody message server" For example, I wanted to buy options instead of a stock position, they said sorry pal you're not experienced enough to buy and sell options, so go back to your kindergarden class and take a little nappy. Well Chuck, I don't like your attitude.
Schiller's models have been wrong for YEARS....one analyst says his persistence in compiling models and trotting them around media circles shows some kind of agenda.....
Keiko was deeply hurt and interpreted his freedom as being rejected by the people who loved him. He mostly swam around in miserable solitude in a vast lonely ocean. Must've been horrible for one of these social creatures.. Now, the ignorant "just release them" crowd wants to do the same identical thing to Sea World's whales. Well gang, you need to just stop living in a fantasy world. Here's what you need to do, begin a petiton drive for the US Government to purchase the whales from Sea World Corporation. Then build them a Billion dollar recreational facility for them to live out their lives. Shouldn't cost more than a hundred million a year tops. And don't worry about it, we spend so much on the military, the cost of 50 little whales is just a drop in the proverbial bucket.....roll it right into their budget.
There's no borrow out there, and that is a scary thing. If history is any guide, this thing could turn on a dime and rip the Shorts faces off.....
They have to shift their emphasis to Dolphins. Dolphins are not "coddled" by the Greenies like the KILLER Whales. Reason is pretty simple, they are not endangered and relatively common in the ocean. Fisherman kill THOUSANDS of them annually with their nets, so you have a couple of hundred at your parks, that ain't no big thing. And maintenance costs are WAAAAYYYY lower. So Sea World Management, your job is to build a Dolphin enclosure the likes of which the world has never seen.
Am I a GoPro now?
And the imbeciles at the "genius" bar actually accept it from him and enter it in EVERY TIME, costing Apple 300K, Good thing those margins are juicy AppleHeads, the company needs them to be.
So, once again,, I'm flying SW out of Harrisburg and as usual, I'm getting the "this seat is saved" BS from my fellow passengers. That's the game, where passengers game Southwest's open seating system in an attempt to keep the middle seat free. There's always a spouse in the restroom, imagine that, couldn't go before boarding the plane?...oh well, that's people for you. So, finally, after hearing several BS excuses on why I can't sit next to someone, I wait for the Flight Attendant to find me somewhere to sit. After experiencing the glare of several passengers. That's the "don't you dare put that fatman next to me" glare. They finally seat me next to this adorable little girl, who is too young to have learned the evil stare. I sit next to her and she asks me if I stink. I chuckle and say "I hope not" And she says, her mommy tells her that fat people sweat a lot and that makes them stink. I nod and say that's probably true. She then innocently asks, in her own way, how I'm able to live with myself being the way I am. This little girl treated me like I had leprosy or something. After takeoff, I went down to the lavatory, and had a good cry. That little girl could be a Southwest spokesman for how she treated me. I hate you Southwest with all my heart and soul.
We will never again get to see an Orca show with trainers interacting with the Orcas in the water. When trainers left the water, the show really went minor league.....everyone has complained about how much was lost.. I am completely against the expansion of the Orca compound now. Without trainers in the show, it's throwing money away. Sell the existing Orca inventory to the highest bidders and ship them off. Either to overseas parks or the sushi factory.
Ever go to the track? HBO cancelled their horse racing drama "Luck" because 2 race horses used in the drama died during their first season of filming. Some of the crew also witnessed acts of cruelty against horses that were so egregious, they were considering notifying the Screen Actors Guild. And this was in California, can you imagine what happens down South
