The First Rule of Fight Club

November 23, 2010 – Comments (12) | RELATED TICKERS: PHI , TE , CLUB

The Tyler Durden I know had a very important rule: Do not talk about Fight Club. Why must his followers ignore this critical mantra these days?

While I admire the insider knowledge and investigative journalism over at Zero Hedge I find it amazing how many people will use this one source as the basis for his/her view of the world. The author is obviously very bright and provides another angle into the financial world that is certainly worth considering. 

My problem are the ones that re-post every Zero Hedge headline as fact. Some feel these talking points are the only perspective needed to illustrate that anyone not participating in the investment strategy of his/her choice is a thoughtless idiot. 

Tyler Durden might not be a buy and hold investor but he also would not advocate buying Gold or shorting banks. He would tell you to stop bullying others on this website using someone else's ideas.

Grow a garden and prepare for the apocalypse that is brewing.Your sense of value will not be built here. Stop ruining a character that I used to love dearly and stop talking about Fight Club!

Given that Tyler Durden is a character in a movie, isn't this like asking if Bugs Bunny knows something to be a fact?  You're not having a Murphy Brown moment, are you Ron?  j/k

Tyler Durden would have used these tickers if he had written this post:

FIG HT CLUB

Otherwise, good post!

TMFCrocoStimpy (96.73) - something tells me that Ron has not seen the movie but I hope he weighs in with his opinion of it. And Bugs Bunny would probably only trade options IMO. : )

EnigmaDude (97.30) - Tyler Durden wouldn't bother with tickers...if he did it would be highly offensive, Ford, UC Resources and Kellogg Company might be his favorite firms.  Thanks man!

We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.
