I wonder if he's edible
I wonder if he’s edible

Better late than never

Life, work, kids, stuff. I’ll post something more substantial for June’s recap, but my super late May update will just be numbers.

One interesting note is I bought NASDAQ:XIV in mid may during the giant spike in volatility, managed to get in at around $70 or so. As of writing, it’s $87.03. Haven’t sold yet. Will write more for June’s update.

      Nothing special, was a random snail that was hanging out near my door one day. I have no idea if it’s edible, not brave enough to try.

    Pretty darn good month of May! No, that snail is probably not very tasty, or was it?
