  1. My apologies if previously mentioned, but "Into the Night" season 2 on Netflix is out. Seeing it pop up for the first time today so perhaps newly released. I enjoyed the first season but worry that the transition from "running from the sun" to "staying alive in a bunker" won't be as interesting.
  2. Just read an interest thread on Facebook about tipping at casinos. Vegas casino patron wins a $1.1 million jackpot playing slots. How much should the slot attendant be tipped? Same question if the player is at a table game - imagine a game-specific jackpot on something like 3-card poker or Let-It-Ride. How much do you tip the dealer(s)? Do you then also tip the person who brings out the tax form, the over-sized check or the security guard who walks you to your room afterwards?
  3. My oldest son is a '22 grad. Just received his first college acceptance to Grand Canyon U in Phoenix. He toured there last winter and fell in love with the campus. But.... He is a baseball player and is interested in playing baseball in college. He has three different visits lined up at Division 3 schools near us (MN). He wants to see if any of the local area schools will grab him the same way GCU did. So while GCU is is first choice, he knows he can't play baseball there (Division 1). If he chooses GCU, he may play club baseball as they have a strong program that plays a varsity-like schedule, including travel. My understanding is that GCU has around 16K students on campus but then buttloads more who attend there online. Anyone here have any experience with the campus/school?
  4. I sold my stake in DPLS today. I'm sure there are long plays out there, but every one I think might be one proves me wrong. I honestly think most/all penny stocks should be treated as short-term gambles and nothing more.
  5. Opening night of their 2021 Summer Tour. Live from Raleigh, NC on Sirius XM. Opened with #41, Granny, Grey.
  6. How much does NCSA charge? Can you ballpark what we'd be looking at? TIA.
  7. Any employee working has a stack of boop cards. Just pick one up from anyone. Non-spoiler tips (at least I don't consider these spoilers): Tip #1 - every product you see in the store is actually for sale (though expensive). Tip #2 - Immerse yourself in the experience. Pick things up. Touch things. Try to open doors, windows, lockers, etc. If it looks like you can open it/walk through/into/around it, you probably can. Tip #3 - Wear a high quality mask. It felt very covidy in there as there were a crap-ton of people. They say they limit entrance #s, but it sure didn't feel like it. Tip #4 - There is a merch store in the facility. Easy to miss as it's tucked away in a corner. Tip #5 - There are places to eat inside Area 15 - arrive early or plan to stay late and enjoy the place.
  8. Yeah, Omega Mart is wild. I've never seen anything like it - I do recommend but you need to go into it ready for the weird. There is actually a puzzle to solve (sort of in the same vein as an escape room except you aren't trying to escape) but you don't have to even dive into that to enjoy it. There is so much to look at and explore I wish I could describe it better than that but it's so unique - you just have to experience it.
  9. Moderna shot #2 in the arm yesterday mid-day. After shot #1 - semi-sore arm at injection site, mild fatigue & mild nausea approx. 24 hours after shot, joint pain primarily in wrists - it was weird After shot #2 (so far) - arm is much more sore at injection site than last time (it feels like someone punched me really hard right in my upper shoulder), no signs yet of fatigue or nausea, joint pain in my wrists again - which still seems weird Hoping the rest of today and tomorrow go swimmingly.
  10. We stayed at an AirBnB in Desert Hot Springs - a good mid-way location between Palm Springs and the park. Worked well for us to enjoy the park during the day and then enjoy PS at night. Joshua Tree is cool - different than I expected and very different than the parks in Utah, for example. We enjoyed hiking and my boys learned how to rock climb with a guide. Side note - if you like Tiki bars, there is a great place in PS called "Reef". You can sit outside by the pool, soak in the great classic music and enjoy good food - it's a fantastic setting. We also drove around looking at classic mid-century homes that PS is known for. There are some amazing homes and it was a fun way to spend a couple of hours seeing the style that made PS semi-famous.
  11. Zion Mountain Ranch has cabins just outside the park to the east. They are great and I'm almost certain they are dog-friendly. My family has stayed there twice and loved it both times. Easy access to the park and amazing views. Highly recommend.
  12. It's a good morning to avg some costs down. Bought another chunk of both HCMC and GRSO on big dips. Sold off some positions yesterday at losses - just couldn't stand looking at them in the portfolio any longer. The TSNP reverse split is interesting. I had just started buying in as it had been lower recently, so I don't yet have enough shares to make a difference. But fun to have a small piece anyway for now and I plan to try and acquire more once the new ticker trades (HUMBL).
  13. Using today's dip to buy into TSNP. Believers in that one are rabid - I'm buying the hype. It has been frustrating watching the weed stocks all get pumped and dumped by reddit....but am I wrong in thinking some are still a really solid long play? As more and more states legalize how can this sector not benefit?
  14. Yeah, this is a LONG imo. I was just worried I missed some news or something. Today is a good buying opportunity all around.
  15. Sold some BTSC at the peak after yesterday's close so now adding that to my freeroll list. That's fun. Almost everything else is taking a bath though - yuck. WDLF is tanking today - any ideas why?
  16. Now that the focus seems to be on COVID spread by droplets in the air, are fecal clouds no longer a concern? Haven't heard anything on that front for a while and was in a public restroom today. Fecal clouds? Anyone?
  17. Just bought into GTEH on the dip. Agree re: the hold sentiment. Now also free-rolling BTDG. Down big on the day - people taking profit after this week's run up. I may buy more if this continues to dip.
  18. I"m finding people to follow on twitter + reddit (/pennystocks). And this board, of course.
  19. Honestly, I don't know much about the underlying health of any of the companies I'm investing in and in the OTC market I feel like I have to be ok with that. That said, I'm just trying to tail people who seem smart about this - WRFX is one of those I read about this AM on twitter from someone who has been offering a bunch of seemingly good info. I'm not afraid to just follow others as I'm not risking too much yet... TLDR - I suck at this and just follow other smarter people.
  20. Sold some AITX today so now free-rolling that one. This AM started positions in STWC, WRFX, GRSO and PHBI.
  21. I see some exiting BTSC. Just profit-taking or any reason it is no longer desirable? It is my only crypto play and I like the market sector......
  22. With so many pennies shooting up, how do we identify the opportunities? Anything down big that deserves a look? Looking for the next thing, not the one that feels too late. Took my initial stake out of wdlf today and free-rolling 25k shares. My first free roll. About to do the same with aitx and snpw.
  23. Perfect example - is there a point to pulling the $62 at this point? Is it a tragedy if you ultimately lose that original $62? If not, why not let it all roll? Unless the point is to take profits along the way in a stairstep fashion (just like you'd average your cost down by investing in more if the price goes down)? I guess if I had a $62 >> $2k, i'd probably take some profit out. Not sure how much though.
  24. OK, need some advice from strangers on the internets please. My position in WDLF has gone up 120%. :flex: My position in SFIO has gone up 40%. AITX up 40%. At what point do I take out initial investments to freeroll? How do I determine if I should just run with it all :diamondhands: (if my position is small, for example)? Are there signs I can look for to tell if a significant gain is a pump'n'dump as opposed to a legit leap forward that can be sustained? I really like WDLF long term so I'd like to just let it run, but I also like the idea of freerolling when possible. Just wondering if there are consistent thoughts around such things. Learning a lot here - hoping to learn more. TIA.
