After you mentioned him about 10 times, I had to look him up.

Also, I lit your fridge on fire. It was upsetting me.

Can someone explain to me what short selling is? Lol.

The world is not beautiful, and that, in a way, lends it a sort of beauty.

It's a little confusing to me, I don't completely understand it, but basically, you are "selling" shares that you don't own, and hoping that the price goes down, because you must "buy" those shares back at some point to get to 0 shares. You are essentially "borrowing" the shares from one party for free (or sometimes for a fee I think), so that you can sell them to someone else for a price (the present price). You can't go on with "negative shares" of stock, and eventually must buy those shares back, to "return" them to the party from which you borrowed them. If the price of the stock has gone down by the time you do the "buying back," you are profiting on the deal, because you're paying less money for x shares than you sold them for. If the price went up by the time you buy the shares back, you lost money.

Okay, that's what I imagined when sometime told me short selling means you want the price to go down lol. Never tried looking it up.

Yep. The basic idea is simple. You make money if the stock goes down, and lose money if the stock goes up. The opposite of buying shares of stock. The details are complicated and confusing and I'm not exactly sure how it works.
