This is a question I've wanted to ask for a long time. Unlike many of my posts, this isn't here just to be provocative and rile everyone up. I'm sincerely wondering:
Are you willing to bet your entire future on the fluctuations of the marketplace? That is, are you willing to unconditionally accept whatever outcome is given to you, even if it results in you being dirt poor or simply dead?
Please note that I'm not asking if you think you'll end up poor or dead, but whether you would accept the outcome if you did.
I know my answer: FUCK NO.
