You’ll get idiotic memes like this, too:
**wife burning holes through me with her glare**

ME: “Listen, we can either go on a steady ramp of 8% a year and retire when we’re 60 or — based on Reddit board price projections for Doge — retire within the next 6-7 weeks. Your call. I’ll obviously honor it.”

1/ For the past decade, 57-year old investor Bill Hwang (through his fund Archegos Capital) quietly built one of America's largest fortunes.

In late March, Archegos imploded and Hwang personally lost $8 billion over a 10-day span.

**$8B in 10 days**

Here's the insane story🧵
2/ Hwang is a true immigrant success tale.

Born Sung Kook Hwang, he moved from S. Korea to America as a child.

Hwang grew up in a religious household (father=pastor, mother=missionary) and to very modest means.

He taught himself English working night shifts at McDonald's.
3/ Hwang studied at UCLA in the 80s and his first job after graduation was as an equity salesman at Hyundai Securities.

While there, he met (and impressed) investing legend Julian Robertson, who ran Tiger Management hedge fund.

Robertson hired Hwang and taught him the ropes.

Amazing Coca-Cola ad campaign.

It’s high-res images of the drink that challenges you to “try not to hear this”.

The pics create the effect of synesthesia, when 2 senses cross in the brain (sight + sound).

Coke is one of the few brands that can pull this auditory illusion.
The only other brand that can do it.
