Four Years of Greatness: Turning Four is Like Turning Japanese

by Mr Juggles

Four years and zero score ago, we conceived ourselves, writing ourselves out of the blogspottian tubes and into the internet with this first post.

Over that time we put out 1000ish posts, we turned thousands into billions and billions into thousands, we shorted human beings and went long Zimbawenomics. We uncovered the value of boobs, legs, and female assets more broadly. We issued our own investing commandments. We warned the world of the coming conquering cephalopods, while never neglecting to incite generational warfare against elderly and newborn alike. We were the first dividend paying blog and we deliberately priced them to ensure that most people wouldn’t bother. We were later the first dividend paying blog to rescind those dividends due to certain aggressive SAAP related measures we employed in our cooked books.

We mocked Alan Greenspan, Ken Lay, Ben Bernanke, Henry Paulson, the ratings agencies, Elliot Spitzer, Barney Frank, most people in unions or who are employed by the Government, lawyers, IT workers, HR women, and consultants. We disparaged 70% of the population of the world by country or regional affiliation. We also took to task most everyone in any way involved with finance.

We did our part. And we made a lot of money for our readers (and ourselves (mostly ourselves)) while doing it.

None of this would be possible without the help of you guys and you girl, so we’d like to thank you all. Thank you all. And now you can thank us, in advance, for four more years of greatness.

    Also, I’m certain there’s TWO girls who read LoSC.

    I’ll chalk it up to a typo in one of your uber-complex excel models, this time…

    Take it easy on the IT guys for the next term. We deserve better, and even if we don’t, we’ll make you pay anyway.

    All this to say that you won’t be paying dividends…

    You’re too modest. Did you forget that you also called the top:

    and wrote the benchmark in client communications:

    Keep up the good work. Live long or short and prosper.

    Also, you totally drove girl and equity private off the web, reducing the chick population on the internets by at least half.
