I’ve been watching a ton of films and documentaries from other countries or other regions within countries. For ex. I’ve started watching Malayalam language movies from India - researching all the highest rated ones. On another week I went through all the Woody Allen movies I could find. Reading about the history and context of how some of these iconic films were made is fascinating.

Oh Bollywood is no match to Malayalam movies. Check out Premam and Kumbalangi Nights. You’ll find then either on Prime or Netflix.

First part of Q I was working a crap ton, barely had time to do essential tasks like grocery shopping and making the bed and could not understand where everybody got the time for these hobbies. I got a new role and now I am doing things like making bagels from scratch, and trying to figure out how to be a millionaire.

The market today is a funny twist on the old Buffet saying... “when others are fearful, be greedy. When others are greedy, be more greedy.”

Case in point: Someone placed a ridiculous mega sweep of SNOW calls at 350C for mid December. I threw $400 at 2 weekly expiry ATM 290C and they turned to $1400 before I took profits.

Hello Fishes,

I have received an offer as SD1 at Amazon Gurgaon. I have 1 yr and 6 months of experience. I did my BTech in computer science from 2016-20. I had some active backlogs as well. Due to covid, many exams were not conducted and as for the ones that did happen, the results are taking forever to come. Right now I have one backlog and the result is yet to be announced. I am positive I will pass. Will this affect my offer from Amazon during background check as I am yet to receive degree?
