Did you jump in on that bed, bath and beyond short squeeze?  Up 80% after hours lol.   wtf? 
 

Really lol, this casino is so wild it’s nearly unbelievable that it’s real money  

There has to be so much quasi fraud with options and these major moves that mint millionaires over nite , specifically regarding the short squeezes and the timing .

I’m Finally squared away on Binance and Coinbase 

The charts of so many of these crypto’s are unbelievable. The amount of people who have taken 10 grand in the last year and rode it to 100-200K is definitely the highest on record . You just don’t see 2,000% annual returns , and how many crypto’s have done this last year .You just do not see these gains annually in any other year at this magnitude.

That’s just it though, there’s not a lot of regular Joe’s they can casually throw 10 or 20k at a meme coin like Shibu or whatever but the gains have been mind boggling.  

I don’t have a lot of money to play with but whenever I can spare a few hundred dollars I  buy some top 20 crypto‘s.  I’m not getting rich but still making more than I would in stocks or a savings account.  

Is it risky? Absolutely. However I do my research and generally stick with stuff in the top 20 of market cap.  I stay away from the meme coins even though some outrageous gains have come out of them. 
 

I think Bitcoin and Ethereum are going to run again and drag the alts up but I’ll cash out once the FOMO is in full swing.  No need to get greedy. 
So many people were saying it was too late to buy BTC when it hit 40k.  Lol

My feeling is that when this current cycle peaks we will probably see BTC somewhere close to 90k.  ETH over 6k.  

The NFT and meta-verse projects like Sandbox will be the next avenue to make massive profits but I keep it simple and safe with US based account exchanges so I don’t get to play in that realm.

Yes and goodbye corridor.

I guess people really bought into the advertisements.  I could see if I owned property near the new 50 miles I'd be against it.  And CMP can definitely suck it.  But how are we going to move forward with renewable energy if we don't allow them to complete the project?  Contract isn't going away.  IMO Mass using hydro is better than other less sustainable alternatives. 

I think I'm more shocked by voters approving 3, amending the Constitution over a tinfoil hat conspiracy. 

We shot down renewable energy and approved amending the Constitution, doesn't make sense.

Wonder if he moving to Stowe Or Jay for the winter . Seems he’s up there all the time .

Hmmm, a couple of longtime weather people just retired from the local CBS and NBC affiliates.  The CBS one is all set but maybe the NBC affiliate made him an offer that allowed him to move up?

I read somewhere that he said he was in the wrong place at the wrong time and brought it to social media and he shouldn't have. I don't follow him on any social media, maybe the answer's there.

Was the big deal just clearing a 100’ area of trees to bring it down? What was the big issue outside of that?

I think that and "Mass profits at Maine's Expense" were the big ones people were drawn too.  And I think the pro-corridor campaign adding in the retroactive law aspect did more harm than good.

The question wording was a mess, too, which didn't help. 

"Do you want to ban the construction of high-impact electric transmission lines in the Upper Kennebec Region and to require the Legislature to approve all other such projects anywhere in Maine, both retroactively to 2020, and to require the Legislature, retroactively to 2014, to approve by a two-thirds vote such projects using public land?"

This article did a good job breaking it all down, unbiased IMO.

The retroactive law selling point was an invalid one anyways, That law already exist on the books in the legislature even before the proposed corridor.

First of all, Maine legislators can already pass retroactive laws and they’ve done so more than 150 times in the past two decades. Doing so requires, in most cases, a majority vote of the Legislature and the governor’s approval, or absent that, enough lawmaker support to override a gubernatorial veto.

The same people trying to stop it are the ones with cars rotting in the front yard, dumping oil and other shit in the woods or burning it, while riding around in a diesel pick up truck doing rolling coal rallies. Such environmentalists.

The article that Tuna linked seems like a pretty decent explanation of the conflicting views. The Conservation Law Foundation supports the project while the Sierra Club opposes it.  The other thing is not everyone believes Hydro-Quebec is all that environmentally conscious.  They've flooded millions of acres of forest that has released tons of carbon and methane into the atmosphere.  The article points out that a bill was introduced a couple of years ago that would have required an independent assessment of any claimed impacts on climate change that was defeated after heavy lobbying by Central Maine Power.  It's a pretty complex mix of parties opposed to the project.

The biggest one of all that's not mentioned is who's pockets were going to be lined in all this, And i won't mention her name.

And oddly enough people who are truly environmentally conscious opposed this, too.  As Eaves pointed out, it was a complex mix opposed to this thing.

That map is interesting dryslot.  Look at Cape Elizabeth as the outlier voting for the corridor.

I saw that last night as votes were being tallied on the press heralds site, But the votes were close overall in the cape by the no winning by 107 votes, The other one was frye island once i blew up the map lol

It isn't that simple though.  Look at the list of people opposing the project, there are some strange bedfellows.  Also, as I mentioned in a previous post,  Hydro-Quebec isn't exactly an innocent, clean energy producer.

Here is a link to the Natural Resources Council of Maine's take on how environmentally friendly Hydro-Quebec is.

If you assume that Maine logs 500,000 acres which is what I saw...correct me if I am wrong...145 miles by 150' is a lot less square footage of trees removed. So there is that. Now it does seem like Maine tries to plant trees after logging which is good...but that is a lot of timber removed.
