Bought all HATS, shorted all SPEC, bought all HATS. I don't have much to lose.

More than halved my net worth, but I'm still in this thing.

Kept my HATS, shorted SPEC, bought more HATS

I honestly can't decide whether I want Dutch Guy to fail out of spite, or whether I want him to succeed so that I can hold on to the 'Most Debt' title, which is definitely a real thing and not something I just made up now.

My second failure was even bigger than the first. Dammit.

Fine. I'll feed the gambling addition and start over once again.

Hmm... trying to decide if I want to get back in or not. I'm worried thinking about the Hat Market makes me not focus on the humor of the episodes enough to actually enjoy them as much as I could.

I don't pay attention to the Hat Market at all when watching the episodes. They're completely separate things to me.

I kind of do, yes. There was a time when I was rich, I was the leader and I owned a small island nation called "New Hatistan". The amount of money you have right now probably IS enough to buy a small island nation or even a large one.

I don't really pay attention to the hat market until after the episode either. I still look for tricky cuts when I'm counting that week, though and I notice a general up or down trend.

Dutch Guy has 10.7 QUADRILLION dollars. I'm pretty sure that's enough to buy Europe.

I think this raises a much scarier question, though... When Dutch Guy buys all those shares... who's he buying them from?

HatsCo just keeps printing off more to meet demand. That's how economics works, right?

Totally. Don't mind the overflow when it happens, that's just the market crashing.
