Hand Me The Machete

Boy what a mess. I think a special set of tools may be needed to navigate this tape. A set of razor sharp machetes may just do the trick. Clearly trading these swings isn’t for the faint of heart, but it can be profitable if you’re one of those nimble adrenalin junkies.

We’ve had quite a bit of that in the last few weeks and it tells me that I probably shouldn’t push my good karma quota and treat lightly.
