I'm going to play the risky game this week: Buy HATS. Short SPEC. Buy HATS.

Same here. Of course, I always buy-short-buy. Go big or go home. :p

It's possible I saw one the first time and the other the second and, given missing one made both numbers the same, thought no more of it. I might have to switch to a three-view system from now on just to be safe. Of course, the solution to this problem is obvious.

I MUST NEVER BE WRONG AGAIN.

I don't think you're going to be lonely long Geoff. I'm completely gone. Here are my numbers (only having gone through once, so they may be off) for the week:

SHOT: 48
NADA: 18 =37.5
SPEC: 29 =60.417
HATS: 1 =02.083

Unless I missed a HAT shot or overvalued SPEC, I'm now at -4554826274. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I'm at work and can't see the Dump yet, but only one hat shot!? Yikes. Hopefully my shorting of NPEW will save me.

Because this is my second account to go bankrupt? Also I'm awesome.

I was looking at the about page and the description for NADA was different than I remember it. It has "Something to represent nothing. Requires no other stock make an appearance for a whole shot.".

I thought it was: Nothing or a prop not being worn. So the cup Alex was holding in that one shot for this video would count for NADA even though Alex was wearing his glasses.

I just love how the graph is borked.

Also: I'm so glad I forgot to submit anything this time around. I might survive... By survive I mean when did all my stuff become liquid o.0. Safety!

I can't keep up with all the boxes! You'll have to find your own!

Looks like the Alley is going to get crowded pretty quickly!

Well, I was all in on hats, but I also didn't short anything, so while I lost almost everything, I am still in the game. Take that, you box dwellers.

Kapol was right on the money this week, sending him all the way down the hole.

We have also lost Drdiggit42, phlip, LackingSanity and Silpho who get their box a second time. First time entrants in to Box Alley are Fugiman, uberfail, Kapol and MrParivir.

Do not ask me how but I seem to have come out of this disastrous week without too much trouble.

I guess Dutch Guy has reached Too Big to Fail status now.

I think props have to go to under_score, that's an impressive profit.

As for me, well it's wiped out half my value :(
