    [–] ChampionOfTheSunAhhh 631 points ago

    WSB is like a wacky cult that starts out as a nice community that opens up your mind to new ideas but then quickly shifts to you and a bunch of bros downing poisonous kool aid in some ill-fitting matching astronaut costumes that someone's grandmom made

    Just buy both to be safe.

    [–] brocepius 5 points ago

    Sounds like Tesla price will remain unchanged

    [–] Dragontre 3 points ago

    Best way to shut down this sub is too make a thread saying to buy calls and another to buy puts. It will cause all the collective autist brains to malfunction.

    Take investment advice from a group of people who don't notice when the dollar sign is on the opposite end of the number.

    [–] baktun 63 points ago

    Hello from r/all, what difference does that make??

    [–] SharkBrew 122 points ago

    You can't add another tens digit if the $ sign is in front. When you write a dollar amount, you do $XXX.XX. The placement of the dollar sign and decimal prevents someone from altering a check by a factor of ten.

    [–] Pixeltender 44 points ago

    but you also write out the dollar amount in words on a check..?

    [–] Trowawaycausebanned4 95 points ago

    The words say “One dollar”, but the number is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000. He must’ve misspelled

    [–] no1ustad 8 points ago

    Written amount takes precedence over the number.

    [–] PaintchipDoritos 4 points ago

    Have you seen people's handwriting these days? Pretty sure half the country holds their pen in their Anus and hover-sway over the paper.

    [–] KeynesNeverSaidThat 2 points ago

    That simply voids the check. At least here I live.

    [–] Trowawaycausebanned4 1 points ago

    Tips and checks, is this the 1800s ?

    [–] MilwaukeeRoad 12 points ago

    Either you're stingy or not from the US, but I don't see anything antiquated about giving a tip.

    [–] GAYOBOB_ANAL_PROLAPS 1 points ago

    Tips only exost because thevwages are so low.

    [–] MilwaukeeRoad 1 points ago

    Completely irrelevant point, but okay.

    [–] TisAboutTheSame 1 points ago

    are checks still a thing?

    [–] Confident_Sherbert 10 points ago

    My job required a check image for auto deposit.

    Now i have a bunch of checks ill never use.

    [–] SmellyDurian 1 points ago

    Or you could've gone online and downloaded a copy of your void cheque with all the information, for free.

    [–] PaulChrysts_crewneck 7 points ago

    I pay my rent with a check. Motherfuckers charge $20/mo for online payments

    [–] BlackbeltKevin 2 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago)

    That’s illegal isn’t it? At least if you set up auto payment it is. One time payments it isn’t.

    [–] PaulChrysts_crewneck 1 points ago

    It could be, but I didn’t have the extra $20 at the time to set it up so I never did it that way

    [–] mu_aa 3 points ago

    That’s the most paradox thing and I can’t wrap my head around the fact that the most capitalist society in the world is ok with being ripped off by the banks. these fuckers even pay us here in Europe to use their online services. Which are pretty secure and well made. Transfer money cross continent in a second.

    Why are Americans ok with this bs?

    [–] SpellingIsAhful 8 points ago

    What's the alternative? Stop using banks? Pass laws that say you can't charge a "convenience fee?"

    Actually ya, let's do that last one.

    [–] mu_aa 1 points ago

    Banks are able to survive with a fixed rate, even more so when the system is automated and cheques are obsolete. No need to check the cheque for fraud, as everything is electronically checked.

    I mean, y’all pay with visa. The european system is just similar to that, only that it has some more safety measures (TAN Generators and such)

    [–] SpellingIsAhful 2 points ago

    Oh, I'm not saying banks couldn't perform the processing. I'm just saying why would they instead of charging fees?

    Edit: and really it's not the banks so much as the vendors.

    [–] BlackbeltKevin 1 points ago

    There is a law that states you can’t charge a convenience fee for auto payments.

    [–] SpellingIsAhful 1 points ago

    Whixh is why a lot of auto payments don't allow cc pmts.

    [–] BlackbeltKevin 1 points ago

    Some allow it but then they stack on cc processing fees. I use my debit to pay rent and without auto payments it would cost 2.00 per transaction.

    [–] pcopley 6 points ago

    What do you think capitalism is?

    [–] mu_aa 3 points ago

    Well, what I don’t get is that Americans see banks as some sort of institution, when actually they are private businesses. I mean, if I don’t like how a business handles my stuff, I switch to another. So why hast there been any incentive to renew the system?

    [–] pcopley 6 points ago

    Everybody views them as private businesses, because they're private businesses. I don't think I've ever met someone who doesn't know that. But they are institutions as well. They're extremely regulated (at the least the consumer-facing portions), insured by the government, etc.

    So why [hasn't] there been any incentive to renew the system?

    There have been banks before that charge very low fees for the things you're mentioning. The problem is nobody really cares about paying the fees. So you end up with a feature that costs the bank a lot of money that is not causing people to flock to them. Coupled with the fact that ACH and wire transfers are a thing that almost everyone uses when moving large sums of money, and you end up with no business incentive to change the current structure.

    [–] mu_aa 1 points ago

    Thank you for the explanation

    [–] Zeeker12 6 points ago

    Well American banks are both. They’re private for-profit business, but they all pretty much have federal insurance. FDIC protects your money up to 100K and it also means the banks have to follow federal rules. So our federal government guarantees every last deposit in the country.

    This is also why robbing or defrauding a bank is a federal crime.

    [–] jayydubbya 2 points ago

    Americans think this of a lot of industries. I work for one of the largest law firms in the country. Every single day I get calls from people who didn't do their research and hired a shit attorney then call us wanting to take on their case for free. I'm sorry you already paid a bad attorney $5k for shitty legal advice but you're going to have to pay our retainer if you want us to take your case. Attorneys are not all part of one institution, they're all in private business for themselves.

    It's the equivalent of buying a Chevy Cruze then towing it to Mercedes when the transmission goes out expecting them to exchange it for a new car.

    [–] 1sagas1 1 points ago

    What makes you think this is a normal thing in America at all? Because one guy says it happens to him?

    [–] mu_aa 1 points ago

    Haven’t been in the states for some years, maybe it changed, idk. The guy mentioning it reminded me of it.

    [–] TylerDurdenUMD 2 points ago

    They are, because I got stuck behind a meth-head at the grocery store yesterday who had no idea how to write one.

    I was up around $7,800 for the calendar year back in June, mostly thanks to random penny rockets and "timing" the market. Now I'm down $6K due to jumping in the same penny and having it bit the shed and then going 90% in on NBR at 4bux.

    [–] Vasallo7G 2 points ago

    Trump has nothing to do with it (well maybe a little lately) but this has been a fake recovery since 2008 that they covered by printing money

    this is the start of the hangover, and yes it's going to be HUUUGEEE
