Did I actually invest those stocks the wrong way around? Yes, apparently I did. What a shocking demonstration of the perils of late night investments.

I bought ALL the NADA. I won't be shorting anything this week. I think it's a little too risky.

The market confidence pie chart seems to be broken. 227.73% liquid -127.73% invested.

That's because shorting very much screws up the balance.

As does people with very large negative equity.

Shorted Spec, Brought Nada, kept enough liquid to cover a spec fail.

As a query, provided you don't short it won't auto-sell your 0-worth stocks right?

It auto-sells if your liquid money isn't enough to auto-buy your shorted stuff. So if you don't short, you're in the clear.
While no one overhear you quickly tell me not cow cow.
but how about watch phone?

Seems like a solid week for NPEW. Too bad I shorted NADA.

Do James' sunglasses on his hat count as NPEW? And are Kathleen's sunglasses prescription or did we decide that any sunglasses are NPEW even with a prescription?

It's that time of the week! It's the 'Kapol's bored at work so he estiguessedimated the numbers!' Here are my numbers for this week:

NADA: 15 =35.714
HATS: 15 =35.714
SPEC: 12 =28.5714
NPEW: 17 =40.4761
Total Scenes: 42

If correct, I'm now at 190869815.0692. Another week where I was worried when I watched it for funsies, but now think I did pretty well.

Also RE:Drdiggit42, I counted the sunglasses on Jame's hat as NPEW. They were in shot and 'technically' being worn (since they were on his head, even if not covering his eyes). I also counted Kathleen's sunglasses as NPEW, though I'm not as sure on that. Just in case, here's my breakdown of the scenes:

Graham (NADA) : 15
Graham (HATS) : 1
James (HATS+NPEW) : 2
Kathleen (NPEW): 12
Alex (SPEC+HATS): 9
Kathleen+Alex (SPEC+HATS+NPEW): 3
Total scenes: 42

Did you count Alex's gasoline container as NADA?

What do you mean? I don't remember there being any shots of just the container.

The container is a prop. Props that aren't worn are NADA.

I hope your numbers are correct, Kapol, otherwise I could be in for a world of hurt. Again.

I'm glad I didn't short anything this week, but I fear I haven't earned anything either.
