i can make a juri bot for you if you answer a few simple questions

1. how do you feel about cryptocurrencies
2. how do you feel about holding onto a hopeless dream, never letting go, no matter the cost, until you lose everything you love and cherish

Buying Retrophin at 65 is strictly better than buying it at 100 :smug:

I still don't understand this game

How's it determined how the stock values change?

There is a table, that I keep offline. Two dice give us the column, and then the results are in the rows. Therefore, there are only 11 different closings, as far as the dice are concerned

However, there is also a deck of 36 cards, the news items, that will modify what happens to a stock. A few of the cards affect more than one stock, but most of them only affect one

I found out this weekend that HODL is not just cruise-control typed "hold"! What a world we live in.


Also, HODL
But it is! People made up all kinds of backronyms for it, but it was in fact just a mistyped HOLD.

If straight Retrophin wins again, I'd say that the game itself needs tweaking. Although the odds are against that happening!
If the odds are against it, why would it need tweaking specifically if it wins?

Well, that's a good question. I guess, if straight Retrophin wins through an extremely unlikely set of die rolls, then maybe that doesn't indicate anything in particular after all
