zen fool- don’t trust it!
How could the position of some distant object- such as the sun- have any influence whatsoever on life on earth? The patterns of behavior among humans and other earthlings which fluctuate with day and night (or with the seasons of the year) simply cannot be evidence in support of the ridiculous speculations of astrology- obviously- because everyone already knows that astrology is foolishness. Since astrology is foolishness, then any evidence that could be construed as supporting astrology obviously must not be.
So, because astrology is foolishness, it really should also be ridiculed and condemned, and repeatedly, to prevent people from finding out for themselves how true that it obviously must not be (since of course everyone knows that it is foolishness). Clearly, anyone who even considers the possibility that the sun influences behavior on earth must be a fool- unless of course they are a PhD scientist or something.
Of course, everyone knows that scientists cannot be astrologers- especially not Galileo or Newton or Kepler or DaVinci or any of those folks who established the foundations of modern science and culture. They could absolutely not have been students of astrology. Like I said, astrology is foolishness. Obviously, they must have also ridiculed astrology. Anything else is simply impossible.
Now, you may be wondering why I mentioned astrology at all. If so, please just stop wondering. It can be very distracting.
Thank you. Next, let’s consider some more foolishness.
Have you ever heard that trends begin and end? If not, good. It’s utter foolishness.
How about this: have you ever heard that lending markets change over time? Or that changes in lending markets can effect the value of investments that are often financed by lending markets? Well, it’s all foolishness!
As for the allegations that a decline in the number of mortgage applications could be related to a subsequent decline in mortgage approvals and real estate purchases and prices and so on, that is utter foolishness. Anyone who even questions the possibility of such correlations is a fool.
It is best not to even look at such data. Instead, simply keep placing your bids (bets) without even looking at your house of cards. Also, always bet against the house. When you do not know whether the odds are stacked against you, you absolutely cannot lose because what you don’t know simply can’t happen without your prior approval.
By the way, everyone knows that real estate always rises. It is always a safe investment. I know this handsome guy in New Orleans and a lady with a nice personality in Haiti and they say that real estate always rises, so you should probably buy some from them because prices of real estate recently dropped dramatically in various places. Those dropping prices are a sure sign that real estate must be about to rise because everyone knows that it’s always rising already, yes, everywhere- of course!
Now, as for fools who question the wisdom of investing in gold or in the stock market, no one should question such things. Questioning is a sure sign of foolishness. Avoid it at all costs, such as foreclosure or bankruptcy, or even if the price of your real estate falls way below the amount of your mortgage. At least it’s real estate, right?
When everyone knew that gold was the best investment in the world (say, in 1980), that is a sign of how safe it must be. Prices fell dramatically, sure, and 30 years later are still way lower after adjusting for inflation, but at least it’s not Enron stock or something
I know what you are thinking: when enthusiasm about the stock market got really really high- like in 2000 or 2007- that is precisely when prices dropped unusually fast and unusually far. However, however many times that happens over and over again, it must be pure coincidence, however!
Anyway, everyone knows that you cannot forecast prices of investment markets, well, except for real estate, obviously. Real estate always rises. Other than that, there is no such thing as the possibility of predictability.
After all, the possibility of predictability cannot be true because if it were, then astrology might not be foolishness, and everyone knows that astrology is utter foolishness. I know a bunch of bankrupt ex-millionaires who will swear on that.
Yes, one of them does have a very nice personality. No, not all of them were real estate speculators, though. I know at least one who was so absolutely sure about something else that he did not even think about real estate. He was certain that it was impossible for the prices of financial stocks and tech stocks to collapse.
Anyway, don’t be a fool. Also, I hereby forbid you from asking any questions, especially to anyone who is clearly a zen fool.
Always stay invested however you are already invested. Never sell anything, even like when you retire and think to yourself “maybe I should start selling my retirement investments now and use some of that value to pay for my living expenses.” That’s not only foolishness, but downright unpatriotic. You should be dependent on the government and live like you are poor even if you are rich and then give your investments to your grandkids because they are smarter than you anyway and so you should be guilty if you do anything else.
Basically, if you want people to like you, buy whatever they are selling- no matter what they are selling and no matter why and no matter when. However, even if your home forecloses or your retirement investments collapse and you go bankrupt, at least you know that you are going to go to heaven one day for eternity, but obviously just not yet.
Eternity should be starting very soon, like probably right after real estate prices recover. Anything else is utter foolishness.
