should be closing next week. lots of negotiating with the landlord (bs if you ask me). but hopefully everything should turn out good.

pathetic. It seems like anyone who is put into a position of unadministered power and zero consequence becomes unethical and immoral as possible. even if for the short-term they act like they have our interests in mind. quite depressing

is it possible in today's society, where the power structures are so rigid, to ever take power away from the bankers? will we just have to wait until there are ethically responsible ones?

Well, from what I understand of the black swan is that Nassim, according to his theory, knows there will be a Hitler (black swan) but the predictability of when it will happen in the future is the issue of contention. If you got to a close enough of a timeline where you were able to oversee the various factors that contributed to the rise of hitler and nazism, then yes there is predictability, but that's because you were given so much information. Why the distate for taleb? Even though his ideas might not flow smoothly in the context of history, he has made fortunes out of assuming underlyings of black swans and it's served him pretty well.

not directly finance related, but Nassim Taleb's Black Swan explores some very cool ideas. also here's a large collection of pdfs of finance related books, enjoy

Has been a great 2nd day in California. Heres a quick rundown of the past 2 weeks

Found a great store with a great deal in California (bay area).

Got in contact with broker

Booked flight to Cali (from NJ, flight was great)

Yesterday we saw the store and met with the broker and owner, a sweet and honest 70 year old woman

Today we traveled around and gave an offer to the broker to write up. We went to the Marin Headlands and Golden Gate state park (highly recommend if you enjoy hiking/nature).

Now we are waiting for the deal to be written up and hopefully she'll accept the deal we gave her. If she doesn't I think I am going to buy by any means necessary. I really liked it (healthfood store) and I don't think I will be able to find this type of store/deal ever again, a real steal (very lucky). My family also has been living below the poverty line for the past 8 or so years and I feel like I can help actualize what my brother mom and sister deserve, or what i think they deserve.

I'm all in for moving here, it's all i've ever wanted. It's got a bunch of micro-climates so depending on how you wanna experience your day you can enjoy it in many ways. People are super friendly and the indie scene is poppin. near the ocean so i can look at it for hours. and so much more. I feel so blessed and finally feel like the hard(?)work I've put in has finally paid off. Hope for the best hubski!
