If she were biologically Japanese, the affair wouldn't have been found or exposed. Same old mechanism.

     Buy low, sell high, right?



     How about this? Buy now, sell never.

    One thing I've learned is something that profoundly changes how you think about investing. If you don't absolutely know that you are a trader, you are not a trader. Most financial advice you see concerns where markets will go, and implicit in that is you trade to beat the market. However, if you don't know that's what you're doing, you are not doing that and most of what you hear is irrelevant.

    Financial advice (mostly) is advertising for a service you don't want and shouldn't pay for.

You sound right. I'm not an investor and I don't have any knowledge in investing. My apology if my post above is rude.

    Yeah, but what if it's not?

    Yesterday my stocks crashed horribly! I think it was like 1.4%, and that's big for a single day.

    The doomsters were orgasmic as this proved with geometric logic that A Big Market Event Will Happen.

    See how clever this is? Will it be inflation, recession, "dollar collapse" (my personal favorite)? They'll fill in the blank later so they can be Right All Along.

    A guy named Buffet once said buy now, sell never, which isn't what he himself did. I like that. He's talking to me and knows I'm not him and never will be.

    Stocks are up a bit today with 2 hours to go. So yeah, it get's a bit boring when you've seen it umpty zillion times.

From CNN: Wendy's will test new menus that change prices throughout the day

Wendy's apparently will try a variant of peak load pricing, a mechanism usually used to reduce demand (eg, tolls, utility usage).  It will be interesting to see how this affects demand in an industry where plentiful perfect substitutes exist.  I predict failure.  But then, you know, it involves AI, so success is probably all but guaranteed . . .

At peak time it would take so long to get through the drive-through that if the price was slightly higher, people would rather pay it than start over at another restaurant.  Also who memorizes the prices on fast food menus?  Most people won't know the price is higher.  As long as it is not egregious, I bet it will work and other chains will copy them.
