Unfortunately, angry dimwits like me don’t make a lot of money with which to invest and be successful, all because the world is conspiring against us, everybody hates us, and we have crappy jobs. This does not mean that we are not also out to make a quick mega-fortune without working, so as to immediately retire to a long, glorious […]
