Movie review: The Big Short (2015)

I have been meaning to watch this movie ever since it came out. It did not disappoint. I was so good I watched it twice over the weekend. It is an amazing movie, Well acted and well directed, Making a movie a bout massive financial fraud, with a ton of numbers is really hard, and they did it well. My real impression from the movie is to increase my doubt about everything we are being told today. I am not a Steve Carell fan, but his performance in this movie is nothing short of amazing. Big props to the writers who made this numbers story understandable. My biggest take away from the movie is a massive doubt about everything we think we currently know about what is going on in 2021. Watch this movie.

While a lot of the NATO countries continue to whistle past the graveyard, Sweden is putting money where it counts.

The article is the best take I’ve seen on the recent goings on in the stock market. A lot of folks in business and government need to wake up. There is a revolt brewing.

Not to laugh at this.  It is richly deserved, thought you feel bad for the common citizen.

For a dollar.  Then give SpaceX 3/4 of the budget we give NASA each year.  The government saves money, and we get a competent space program. Story here
