Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

He played the system and won...



What they also don't talk about is how the clock needed to be plugged in. So for it to go off in class and disrupt the class he had to plug it in. He knew exactly what he was doing.

idk, something seems a bit off with the clock boy. For being such a smart kid, it definitely seems like he's playing dumb.

From the article you posted before:


Quoting 
the teenager has been traveling the world. Ahmed earlier this week told The Associated Press that he had visited Google and Facebook, along with other companies and institutions. He also visited with the president of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir, which has prompted some criticism because al-Bashir is wanted by International Criminal Court on charges of genocide and war crimes for atrocities linked to the Darfur fighting. Ahmed's father is a Sudanese immigrant to the U.S. and a former presidential candidate in Sudan who ran opposing al-Bashir.

The kid's father is using his son as a tool to promote his political career, nothing else. He knows how to draw the attention of the media so this little incident turned big really fast.

"Adacia Avery Chambers, 25, is suspected of driving while intoxicated when she rammed her gray Hyundai Elantra into a crowd watching Saturday's parade in Stillwater, killing three adults and a toddler, police said."

As I've said here before you are more likely to die to a drunken or texting driver than you are to somebody that you could defend yourself against with a gun. If people were half as worried about DUI (and texting and driving) as they were about their guns the US would be a lot safer place for everybody.

Reductio ad Absurdum.... People can be killed by an infinite number of things and ways but guns are specifically designed to kill.

I think now the authorities are suspecting it was a mental illness thing, not so much drunk driving.

I don't buy it that someone could do something like that unintentionally drunk. Yeah people get into accidents drunk because of slow reflexes, but no one slams on the accelerator and completely demolishes a crowd.
