2015 - A big year for Hocus prediction

Postby PinkUnicorn » 01/01/15 at 10:31:27

Here we are in 2015. This is a big year. As most may recall, Hocus has predicted that the big crash (65% drop) would happen by the end of this year. That means he will be getting that $500 million dollar check really soon and we will all have to stop buying our cars and bananas (analogy used by Hocus) with our "cotton-candy nothingness".

I guess the Boglehead forum people should just hand over the keys right now! :lol:

He will certainly start backing out of his prediction. I predict that he will both use a blatant lie ("I never said that. ") and will also claim extenuating circumstances ("The market would have crashed but..."). 12 months from now, when he has again been proven wrong and foolish, he will under no circumstances admit he made a mistake. He'll just go on with his miserable life.

i'm going to get in line and beg rob for a few crumbs of his cotton-candy money once he cashes the check....hmm....wonder if it will bounce, since he says the financial world will basically come to an end?

Well, I guess it's time for me to adjust my portfolio so that it's all in cash. LOL.

Those pork bellies should come in handy during the coming Greater Depression that Hocus has been warning about. You should be able to barter for lots of good stuff. Nice Jewelry, land, and other assets. Good plan.

:rolleyes:

'yeah, what i said,...well, i didn't really say it in a literal sense, but more in a figurative manner....here, let me tell you what i meant when i said what i said in clear English...."

it's like trying to nail jello to the wall, ultimately pointless.

The longer this goes on the more it should become clear to Rob that his claim that buy and hold cannot work for "ANY" investors is simply wrong.

facts don't bother rob. they are just proof to him how wide and deep the great conspiracy has gone (now watch him appropriate that phrase). why, it's even infected text books, men of learning, great institutions and companies - turrible, just turrible.
