So I Just Watched The Big Short
 

 

This sh*t was hilarious. Over the years I've becoming quite a misanthrope as I realise through my everyday life just how fu*king stupid human beings are.

When bro says... this isn't what I expected it to look like and bro asks him what did he expect... his reply was, "I expected to see grown ups."

I can't tell you how much I relate to that scene over the past few years especially since this pandemic started.

When Jared tells them even though they present themselves as cynical people they still somehow have hope that sh*t hit bruh. Because every waking day of my life is further realising about how truly fu*ked we are as a society with the biggest danger of climate change about to hit us like a brick wall by 2040 (and tbh it's probably gonna happen in the 2030s).

This film while entertaining and educational (even more than when South Park did an episode about the crisis) was just another stark reminder about why I've slowly become a misanthrope. It's nice that some people still have hope out there. But when you really dig into it like Mark Baum did when he went to Vegas in this movie... man it's depressing as fu*k.

What's even sadder is that we're gonna have another crash pretty soon too


This phrase has been hitting different for me the last 3 years now man. Sometimes I just wish I didn't know these things

Well damn. I'm glad I wasn't planning to watch this sh*t because you done told the movie.

It sounds good, though. Hadn't even heard of it before this thread.

I been feeling this hardcore lately

The older I get the more I realize literally nobody knows jack sh*t and we are all winging it. My bosses at work don't know sh*t. My coworkers don't know sh*t. I don't know sh*t. My friends don't know sh*t.

Had to go to the doctor a few weeks ago to get something checked out and I walked out of there thinking to myself "damn, this dude really doesn't know sh*t either. He just said a bunch of bullsh*t and said check back in in a couple months. Literally didn't do anything."

No such thing as a "grown up". Whole world is just filled with older kids winging this sh*t and every now and again out of the billions of us a person or a group of people collectively come up with an amazing idea to advance civilization. But for the most part, don't nobody know sh*t

It's a fu*ked up realization to come to. But like I said the older I get the more obvious it is.

He barely said anything about the actual plot of the movie so he didn't ruin anything.

Also not sure how you didn't hear of it it was only 2015 that it came out and won a bunch of awards, made a bunch of money and has a stacked cast of A-Listers.

Very good movie. Worth a watch forsure.

Bruh said he told him the movie, like the spoilers didn't happen in real time in 2008.

It's wayyy different this time. There will be a housing market adjustment but it is not because of a subprime mortgage crisis. And plus they were rules added to offset the mortgage-backed securities and collateralized debt obligations. That is really what brought sh!t down. People had funds based on the housing market and when the housing market went down, all those funds and the economy came with it.

The whole system is rigged for the average person to lose.
The the government bails out big banks when they fail and The Ukraine but poor people have to fend for themselves like dogs.

And the people at the top don't know what the fu*k their doing at all.
The people at the top act like they know everything but when you need answers for a problem they don't know a gotdamn thing.

And to be totally honest, I think I America is bankrupt; we just don't know it yet or we're too stupid to realize it.

doctors are some of the biggest finessers and frauds out there

the overwhelming percentage of doctors are just privileged people in it for the money, prestige and significance

you ever notice how we have to give doctors and hospitals all kinds of personal information, but we literally have no information, background or measure of efficacy on the people we pay?

most people don't know, but the 2nd leading cause of death is medical accidents by doctors which is people dying in medical care for reasons unrelated to admission

another good movie to check out is Margin Call, especially after you have the information, background and context from the Big Short

this is the opposite vibe and perspective

Michael(Christian bake character) in 2020 in an interview predicted hyperinflation for the 2020's, he said all the money printing was going to be accounted for in this decade and they would raise interest rates to cool down inflation but it won't work. He was predicting $20 for a loaf of bread type of inflation. Said to secure yourself a water source that water and inflation will be the 2 biggest events in the 2020s.

Ya and colleges got caught with their scam of accepting rich kids with no merit just parents with money. These kids then pay the Asians(Chinese n Indian) kids to take their exams and sh*t and then they get certified as doctors or professionals without really knowing anything . Looks t this last pandemic, how many doctors are there talking about treating and prevention??? Somehow 2 years later we still have nothing from the masses it's because you're theory is right, 90% of pros in anything don't know sh*t. Real doctors out there advocating for prevention and treatments but those guys are called crazy!! See how backwards it all is

There are those with vision who become strong leaders. But vision might be the most over-looked attribute a person can have, because leading people to your vision is one of the most challenging things to do and most don’t understand what you’re doing while you do it.

There is some truth here.

I have two homies that are doctors. One is a general surgeon and the other one is an anesthesiologists. Both of them got into it because of the money and security but I can tell they do like the prestige. We'll be out at the cigar lounge or something and people will walk up to them on some, yo Dr. so and so, how are you type sh!t. But doctors are not all created equal - they are just like any other job. You have good doctors that are very knowledgeable and then you also have doctors that don't know sh!t.

Also, the 2nd leading cause of death is not medical accidents. It's like heart disease then cancer, and then accidents in general. Medical Accidents are a small part of the 3rd category.
