"It is finished.

"It is finished.

"it is THE MERCY"

those are the last known words of Donald Crowhurst, an eccentric and erratic man who had failed at several ventures and who finally risked his life on a contest to sail round the world, nonstop, in a one-man boat.

(cont'd) Image
he was already in debt to a *successful* businessman, a millionaire named Stanley Best, who'd lent a few thousand pounds to one of Crowhurst's failed businesses. the loss was mere pocket change, to someone like Best—but enough to give Best a *hold* over Crowhurst.

that's the *real* power that the #entrepreneur has. #business and #technology propaganda is full of nonsense about how entrepreneurs, people of leisure who gamble on #investment and #cryptocurrency and other sources of "passive income", are the world's creators, but...

we weren't *great* students in college. we maybe got as many Fs as As, if not more. we failed out of @Caltech completely! still we struggled and pushed our way towards our degrees. here's two of them.

as a result, we've seen a lot of people like @NateSilver538. *fakers*.

while we were at @SDSU especially, which was a very big and crowded school full of people studying every conceivable subject, it was impossible not to run into people like @NateSilver538, @mattyglesias, @mtaibbi, &c.—people who thought that "higher learning" was a crock.

likely they were there mostly out of a sense of family obligation: their parents had money and power over them and pushed them to get a degree chiefly because college degrees are vital to social status in "the West". #capitalism may hate education but it loves *degrees*.

the chief preoccupation of #capitalism and capitalists is *predicting the future*. (well, that and _stealing_.)

to be a capitalist is to be hagridden with the #future, and craving omens and portents about it. to be in #business and #finance is to be into fortune-telling.

quite literally in fact! a #fortune, in the sense of a big pile of treasure, was called a fortune because it was something that came to you by *chance*.

a rich relative died and left you a legacy. you had a lucky gold strike, or found a shipwreck loaded with riches.

these days, though, people who devote themselves to lives of avarice—e.g. @elonmusk, @Teslaconomics, and everyone else in #business and #finance and #investment and #realestate and #cryptocurrency and every other way of scamming money—feel that they're *owed* a "fortune".

one of the most curious stories that came out during the 2016 campaign, during which the inept candidacy of @HillaryClinton succumbed to the neo-fascıst movement and @mtaibbi's best friend @realDonaldTrump, was this act of petty corporate theft.

Trump, or rather his tax-shelter @TrumpFoundation (every rich #entrepreneur-criminal has a "foundation" of some sort, useful both for tax purposes and as a place to furnish sinecure jobs to cousins and loyal toadies and so on), was accused of fiddling money from a charity.

@realDonaldTrump's @GOP defenders (*not* including @mtaibbi, whose fandom for Trump and the GOP was predictably late in developing) tried to pretend that Trump or his people couldn't have possibly done such a thing: after all, Trump's already rich! on paper, anyway.

@WholeMarsBlog now...this sort of thing is very interesting. it's speculative and futile, nonsensical even, but these little arithmetic calculations are one of the chief preoccupations of the grifter class—the #entrepreneur class, the #investor class, the #cryptocurrency gambler class.

@WholeMarsBlog @WholeMarsBlog, @APompliano, @BillyM2k, and all the other grifting rag-tag who are wont to dangle after @elonmusk (or any other wealthy and famous person whom they perceive as blessed with #success) spend huge amounts of time with these napkin-scribblings that forecast *riches*.
@WholeMarsBlog @APompliano @BillyM2k @elonmusk @WholeMarsBlog starts out with a false assumption: @Tesla will be able to extract cash from literally every car driver in the country. this is their presumed #market, and it's deliberately chosen to be as broad as possible, so as to forecast even greater riches from extorting it.

#capitalism optimizes for bad engineering. I don't think there's any good reason to doubt that.

capitalism—thanks to the authoritarian methods of capitalist leadership, and the extreme fixation on profiteering and wealth-hoarding, *cannot* and will not build to last.

the easiest way for corporate #management and #executive persons to increase profits, instantaneously, is by *increasing their skim*. they shave more and more and more off every budgetary item they can possibly think of—capitalists *especially* begrudge paying workers.

the ideal worker, in #capitalism, pays the capitalist to have a job.

this is essentially what "company scrip" is about—and capitalists have been attempting to reintroduce the idea of paying workers with false money via the magic of @jack's favorite thing, #cryptocurrency.

this amusing image passed our way this morning; it's a rendered image (like most of @elonmusk's publicity materials) of that hideously low-polygon @Tesla truck that will probably never reach market.

I would like to offer a speculation as to why it looks so ugly.

the hideousness of the $TSLA truck is baffling, even taking into account the mind-numbing effects of being in @elonmusk's quasi-religious faction. it's the sort of thing that makes you wonder: "didn't *anyone* of importance denounce this thing during the design process?"

but that question should be the first clue: quite possibly there *was* no real design process. it's possible that @elonmusk really did "design" the appearance of the @Tesla truck the same way Homer Simpson "designed" his perfect car by idly scrawling on bits of paper.

You know, I don't hear enough of the "battle scars" here in SMB land.

I want to encourage us to talk about the bad stuff in operating businesses more.

Here is a short story to kick it off...

🚨Spoiler - I f@cked up with an employee

A couple of years ago we had a Head Chef in our kitchen that was known to fly off the handle from time to time.

This is normal in the kitchen environment

I don't like this personality trait in chefs, but I have had to accept it to a certain extent.
Time goes on...

I realize this chef's fits were getting more frequent and their work performance was slowly degrading.

Long story short, their work performance wasn't degrading enough for me to instantly jump into action.

Chara will never say this out loud. but I will say it:

@TheSimpsons was about ninety percent garbage, if not more, and it's done at least as much damage to society as @SouthPark.

remember, for example, that @elonmusk planted publicity for himself in "The Simpsons".

that isn't an accident. that's been routine business for @TheSimpsons for almost the entire length of the show's existence: it's been a vehicle for celebrity guest stars to give themselves some "satirical" self-promotion.

eventually this would dominate the show's plots.

that would become a *social function* of @TheSimpsons: laundered, carefully scripted *self-deprecation*—"satire" so tame and bloodless and corporate that it was really just another form of advertising. a perfect vehicle for @elonmusk to spread his #ElonMusk "mind virus".

I bought my family catering company in the middle of the COVID pandemic.

I broke down in tears on more than one occasion in 2020-2021.

I honestly don't remember entire months at a time.

Here is a dose of reality for first-time buyers.

A 🧵
🚨Buying a company is hard....

💣Buying a family company is harder...

You have to manage emotions on both sides of the table and come out the other side getting along. Your happiness depends on it.
I did everything against the norm in buying my first biz:

💥Stock sale to help with seller taxes
💥Timed the sale to help the seller
💥Didn't include 100% of the COVID slump

One of my favorite small business ideas:

1. Pick a hobby that you spend too much $$ on (mine would be aviation or cars)
2. Create a newsletter for that hobby

This could also be a Youtube channel with voiceover and animation.
3. Market to other enthusiasts via reddit/twitter/FB/Insta

Focus on building an audience and monetize later.

💡Business Talk💡

Opportunistic times for businesses!

This time period may last for "some time" however this is when companies improve & differentiate, grow market share, expand into new industries, acquire, & new leaders emerge.

Survival of the most adaptable!

During these contractive, compressed times, the most adaptable & innovative rise.

Strategic tough decisions

Consolidation through M&A - vertical & horizontal integration


"Healthy" corrections...forces businesses to be their "best".

We all eventually benefit!
Many businesses will undergo these tough critical decisions which can provide massive opportunities.

Our international manufacturing e-commerce business transformed & grew significantly during the 2008 economic contraction & became a leader in many industries.

Yo solo quería hacer RTs sin contexto y bromas de mierda, pero como hay gente despertándose ahora genuinamente desconcertada, resumen: ayer se fueron la mayor parte de los empleados de Twitter que quedaban. De 3500 parece que entre la mitad y el 75% se han ido.
A partir de ahí, eres muy libre de escoger tu posición entre Apocalíptico (mañana ya no funciona nada) e Integrado (todo va a seguir igual, esto va solo)
Recordad que todo esto pasa porque Musk lleva a Twitter a juicio para no pagar la cantidad completamente absurda que ofreció, pierde ese juicio y está legalmente obligado a hacer una inversión ruinosa que obliga a Twitter a pagar mil millones de dólares anuales solo de intereses.

I accumulated 500 flight hours then took 10 years off of flying... ✈️

I recently got back into the air to renew several of my licenses.

Here are 5 lessons I have learned from getting current as a pilot.
#alwayslearning #entrepreneur

Number 1 with a bullet

If you have a passion, you MUST find time for it.

Be militant about carving out time in your schedule for the things that feed your soul.

I work aviation into my professional life, but if it was 100% pure hobby, I would still make an effort.
The childlike joy that I feel when participating in challenging/rewarding hobbies would be priceless if you could bottle and sell it.

As a workaholic myself, I have been happier and more productive since taking up flying again.…

@mattyglesias let's count crises, shall we? @dick_nixon might have done the same. @mattyglesias isn't good at recognizing crises (or much else), so let's *help*.

1. #capitalism has wrecked the usual equilibrium of the Earth's carbon cycle, causing a growing excess in atmospheric CO2.

@mattyglesias @dick_nixon 1a. #capitalism profits from turning solid forms of carbon (fuels) into gaseous CO2, and the ordinary mechanisms of Earth's climate and geology are not able to "fix" enough gaseous carbon in order to correct for the man-made imbalance. hence, #GlobalWarming is occurring.

@mattyglesias @dick_nixon 2. #capitalism is addicted to #debt and unearned income made from collection of perpetually accruing interest payments. capitalists like one thing: bank accounts whizzing ever upwards. infinitely accruing interest gives the *appearance* of infinitely increasing #money.
