This pic is right in many ways but a bit overdramatic. Getting GME or BBBY now is, very easily, less risk than getting literally any boomer-heavy stock.
Furthermore, making case that this is the final hail mary of the poorest isnt exactly it. During sneeze, this was dominated by people on WSB. Youre not a regular at WSB if you simply have nothing.
But in essence, its correct. People get big for any number of reasons. Some girl streamers literally stare in cam all day, doesnt even need to show much, and they make more than most honest fathers ever did with honest work. Then, enter inflation and so on. In light of what we see, who wants to wage away their entire life at McD? Its not happening.
Im roughly middleclass. I could have taken my money to get a loan for a small house. Then i´d be in mortgage for better part of my life. Id have my small house and lots of work. Then comes increased rates, and if i would have got that loan, about 50% of my time at work, or more, would go just to pay the credit cost of the loan, until my life is almost spent.
I wasnt destitute or anything. Its just not the scenario i live for. So i take cash to GME. Worstcase, if servers explode and fifty men gets epsteined about it and no one dares to say a word and all is lost, i would still be middleclass. It would take 5 more years for me to gather another downpay for a loan, and then im "in" regular life again. Thats the worstcase. Lol. Yes, this is the rational choice.
