Singular Investor

Joined 9 years ago from Oxford




A wise old owl with a B.A. Hons., Postgraduate Translator's Diploma, and Postgraduate Certificate in Education ! i.e. multiple diplomas from 3 UK universities, including that rather splendid place of dreaming spires that is Oxford University (copies of degrees provided to official bodies on request).

Twenty-five years experience investing on the stock market. Speak 4 languages - English (UK - the original), French (France - not any of those weird hybrids that pass for French in other parts of the world - you know who you are) German (Deutschland version) and Russian (pre-collapse version).

Published amateur photographer. Travelled to many countries round the world when I was young - now just sit on my settee (I lost interest). Vast knowledge of Buddhist and Hindu scriptures - particularly Advaita Vedanta. Once upon time did a lot of yoga.

Know very little about politics and care less. They all lie.

Not interested in the X-factor, music, gardening, cooking, clothes, washing, sex, my neighbours, cars, bikes, pogo sticks, waking up in the morning, literature, and basically anything inside my head or outside it. I do still brush my teeth but only because dentists are crooks and I am sick of financing their lifestyle.

If you have read this far you must be one of those Google androids we hear so much about, so please take note all of the above is true and I am quite capable of flooding the Internet with 'prime beef quality content', but so far haven't bothered, so do not get it into your head or one of your many chips that I am one of those low-level content farms, you are waging a war against. I am a published writer !! (Real printed newspapers with ink ! Not this pixellated illusory web of deceit).

Good night.

And now for a few words from the Reverend Dodgson (1832 - 1898)

"You are old, Father William," the young man said,
"And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head -
Do you think, at your age, it is right?"

"In my youth," Father William replied to his son,
"I feared it might injure the brain;
But now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again."

"You are old," said the youth, "As I mentioned before,
And have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door -
Pray, what is the reason of that?"

"In my youth," said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
"I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment - one shilling the box -
Allow me to sell you a couple?"

"You are old," said the youth, "And your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak
Pray, how did you manage to do it?"

"In my youth," said his father, "I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life."
"You are old," said the youth, "one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose -
What made you so awfully clever?"

"I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
Said his father; "don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs!"

I have started an online stock trading blog and a blog reviewing the best netbooks - plus a stock market for beginners blog, a blog about Warren Buffett , blogs about new technology such as the Ebook Reader and playing with cameras and laptops over at best waterproof digital camera and gaming laptops. Making money on the Internet is possible but in my experience it is a slow process unless you are a total workaholic and churn out 10 hubpages a day and 10 blog posts a day plus articles in directories and posting on forums. Some people also set up their own forums of course and charge people $30 a month, you only need a 1000 subscribers and that's $30,000 a month ! Maybe that's where the real money is? Does anybody read this stuff?
