I only rattle the begging bowl once a year, and this is it.
OK, I get it: money's tight. The bets that Tesla was going to soar above $1,000 and keep going have turned to dust. 401K accounts have been hit hard and the level of uncertainty about the future is pegged to 11 (recall that 10 is the conventional max on the guitar amp volume knob).
It's times like this when the crazy-valuable content on Of Two Minds becomes even more crazy-valuable. Yes, many people reckon it's simply crazy , but look how many times what was dismissed as crazy by the mainstream turns out to be right.
Let's not overlook the entertainment/amusement value of crazy . Crazy has its own unique entertainment value, and if there's one thing that everyone can agree on, it's that Of Two Minds is unique.
I tend to keep expectations low, as that fits my experience , which tracks Churchill's definition of success: going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm .
So in the spirit of maintaining low expectations, I'm looking for ten of you hundreds of thousands of readers who reckon the crazy-valuable (or just plain crazy) content here is worth a dollar. Heck, let's call it a dollar a month, or 12 Washingtons a year.
