Well now that eighsse's supply has just dropped, I'll buy about 100 shares of him. I expect they'll be on the rise soon.

So i win money wise. I dare any of you to prove me wrong.

And is money (fake money) calculated by combined post or post from when you buy stock? Becuase if it is combined, then my gain would be in the stratosphe. If it is from when you buy the stocks, then I say that s not fair because i brought stock in sciencesteven based on what he has posted so far.

and Ace could you possibly make longer post. i do own stock in you.


Take my Dark Tower quiz. Please!

I think hardly anyone here actually understands how the market works anyways.

If it were done properly, all the shares of a given user's stock would exist in some users' portfolios. No one can just "buy" stock out of nowhere. Shares are traded when two parties come together on a price to actually transfer the shares from one user to another. We should have all started owning a given number of shares, perhaps 10,000, of ourselves. Then if one decides to release some of those shares to the market, he can, which makes them available to be bought if anyone agrees on a price with him.

This is the "plot"[sic] of My Immortal.

The story is (mostly) written in a first person perspective from Ebony's point of view. The story starts out by introducing her in extensive detail, then segueing into Draco asking her to go to a Good Charlotte concert in Hogsmeade. They go to the concert and end up doing......something in the Forbidden Forest. Dumbledore catches them and brings them before the rest of the teachers, who just let them go free. This is only the start of a total disregard for the rules that Ebony and friends are allowed to maintain.
The plot mostly centers around Ebony doing it with Draco and complaining about his old relationship with "Vampire" Potter. Nothing really happens until Voldemort appears and tells Ebony to kill Harry, giving her a gun (yes... a gun... why didn't the real Voldemort think of that?). After a suicide mix-up, Snape getting caught spying on Ebony from outside the bathroom window, more appearances by Voldemort telling Ebony to kill Harry, and a confusing sequence of MCR concerts crashed by Voldemort, Ebony is eventually enlisted to go back in time to seduce Voldemort before he became evil.

At this point, the story loses all semblance of coherency (which, combined with the rapidly slipping quality standards in spelling, grammar, and structure, makes the thing increasingly less readable). Dumbledore announces that Ebony is, for unexplained reasons, the only person with a chance of stopping Voldemort. Voldemort is apparently only evil because nobody loved him, so Ebony is given a "tim machine" (or something) and goes back to some indeterminate time period (seems to be the late 80s or early 90s... which is wrong on so many levels) to seduce Voldemort (who went by the oh-so-subtle name of "Satan" back then). Along the way, she joins a "goff" band headed by James Potter, Lucius Malfoy, and others. Marty McFly also makes a bizarre cameo appearance (as if the rest of the story made any sense). Meanwhile in the present, the "Mystery of Magic" takes over the school, sending faculty members to "Abkazian" for ridiculous reasons (yes, even by the standards of the canon Ministry). Ebony makes several trips back in time, until her band gets into a fight on stage and she escapes to the present.

Brief salvation is found in a chapter added by another author who hacked into Tara's fanfiction.net account, which "ends" the story with the whole canon snapping back in place as Ebony is teleported directly to Hell (where her punishment is to wear preppy clothing by American Eagle and Abercrombie for all eternity). The story then goes back to Tara's writing, continuing with the nonsensical plot as Ebony returns to the present time and Voldemort attacks the school (his younger self having somehow turned into his present version). Everyone rushes into the room to witness Voldemort's attack, at which point the story reaches a rather ambiguous ending of Ebony casting Avada Kedavra.

For any future reference for which someone may wish to refer back to this:

First, I agree with Eighsse's assessment. Second, I think there should be some topic on which everyone is posting. Just as the share price of an electronics empire might plummet if they suddenly decided to go into baby clothing, a shorter post on topic would certainly raise a stock value higher then a really long post completely off topic. Third, it seems to me that any post copied directly (or even mostly) from a web source should incur a pretty severe negative impact. Let's just pick a random example... let's see... http://cuiltheory.wikidot.com/what-is-cuil-theory

Since I am only giving my 2 cents with this post, I guess that makes my stock pretty much worthless.

I agree wholeheartedly with what both you and AwwwSweet have said. (And I myself made mention of quality being the real worth on page 1 of this topic)

Also, and this is more or less a personal opinion: If I have to read another wall of nonsensical drivel about hamburgers, not only will I swear them off forever, but I will also need to check myself into Braingle's Asylum, which I'm sure is ironically located right behind the Mentalrobics section of this website.

Lol xD Yeah it's right there and then the poor insane people have to watch through the window at the already-mentally-stable people get in even better mental shape doing their Mentalrobics.

that is just so wrong. Sure the person that I took the most stock out of decides to post short sentences after i buy stock in him.


And here is a topic for discusion. If you could go back to 1987 and had the money to buy stock in Microsoft, would you?

I buy -1,000,000,000,000,000 shares of minakodeb.

The reason I bought so much negative stock from one person is because I know that minakodeb cannot possibly post in this topic, unless she hacks into Braingle. minakodeb deleted her account.

Also, I thank eighsse for the inspiration of this topic, for starting stocks in The Banning Thuree. How many of you guys remember "The Banning Game"? Back when people actually made meaningful posts? My first ban was against extremeblueness. Join these games:

WTB: #3030 Office Cliques #01 by Rhythmic
WWG:#3000 3000 A..D.:Betrayal of Mankind by Jayo
And stay cool, guys! I'm going on vacation this week; might not be able to get on. I hope my WWG ends before then... :
And eighsse, why don't you like WTB/WWG? Or The Legend of Zelda?

These are the best three video games of all time:
·The Legend of Zelda
·Super Mario 64
·LEGO Battles


I know what my personality is. I don't need a silly quiz to tell me.

I just don't like them. They are very slow. Very boring. Very random. Mostly a guessing game until the end. And I don't like Zelda because I pretty much don't like video games.

Umm, there have been situations where people who hate video games love Super Mario 64. Just saying.
The Legend of Zelda rocks!
I've only played two Zelda games , though:
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past & Four Swords
The Legend of Zelda

LEGO Battles is this awesome battle strategy game, where you have to build a base, send troops to your enemy, and demolish each other.
Super Mario 64 is a 3D game where you have to do missions to get Power Stars to power the castle to beat Bowser.
The Legend of Zelda is a 2.5D game where you have to go to a bunch of different underground palaces and beat the dark spirit, Ganondorf.

That does sound fun and all. Games are just too complicated and expensive and time-consuming. Don't have much time, I have lots of eating and napping to accomplish.
