Gene Simmons is a Cardano FOOL - for all the wrong reasons! THINK SATS baby Sats!! Stock splits don't make a good stock...

Hey members of the crypto army - we love ya!  Thanks for changing the world one fiat fleeing coin at a time!!

We love Gene and Ace Freely et al always !  KISS targeted our inner 13 year olds forever.  We tore a stomach muscle laughing so hard at live band kareokee at Arlene's Grocery in the lower east side, with us all leaping on and off stage screaming "JUMP UP!!! DETROIT ROCK CITY!!! GET DOWN!!!"   And rock anthem heroes Kiss, as "adults," paid millions to create touring stage shows replicating high school fantasy doodles,  dang THAT is the Merican dream right there, we can tell. 

But when Gene was recently asked why he chose Cardano as his bag to shill, he replied "it's affordable!!! and crypto should be affordable for everyone!!"  nope WRONG answer wah wah wah.   OK we would write this thinking off as ---too much rock and roll all night,  and parties every day,  means call the firehouse, cause Geno's brain is crispy crittered,  his majestic tongue also deep fried to a delicate crunch.   But his shoes are still freaking awesome7aa170a354508f8454b61285686cc3a406cf66145a78110ac85d6360c92b3b6f.png

But ACK SHU ALLY this is a common misconception, one of those "our brains are just not wired for rational thought" thingies.  Gene will never be alone!!!  We hear this chit over and over, "can't afford BTC or ETH, but boy howdy we just fomoed  the f in on Bitcoin Cash!!!"  Cause it's... so... AFFORDABLE!!!  hows that working out for ya pal???

Wall street stock splits have been working this concept to sell shares to the rubes forever.    Studying retail investors like lab rats, it turns out our monkey minds are most comfortable buying about 100 shares of around 10$ stock.   Or, same idea with a marcoms upgrade, good old IBM was famous for running stock splits / mergers to keep share prices right around $100, cause y'know they were reputable, smart and extra-upright, nice white shirt wearing people.  OK, IBM flew us on a Gulfstream (it was a drag, you hit your head, the waitresses in the sky had to be too short) to try and sell us mainframe services long after that was ever gonna happen. OK they were idiots really, and made us feel bad for asking when they could run Unix.   But wahoo could they market. e.g. THINK.  Grad school marketing classes teaching subliminal "IBM" always printed in a slightly different typeface in their million dollar ads.  But did all that stock price management help? it did NOT.  IBM came in TWENTY YEARS ago around 100 ish, and now b54b4ef757dd579d16ebd49f04195faa9b2449eeb8fa873545348701f8b152d8.pngnow its around 100 ish except wait remember all these graphs are adjusted to show true prices after splits etc.  Twenty years for maybe 10%??? kill us now please.  Jeez we just feel bad for you  IBM man. 

Justin Sun, bless him, at great effort and personal risk, was so nice to Berkshire Hathaway.  But Justin ultimately showed Warren on Bitcoin to be "old man shouting at the clouds" af0e4f2e4f3aa0edb50d842bf6add0bc94b241af71f5c050b4c1bcc970cc1f27.png.  That said, the skinflint diet doctor pepper swiller's stock was extremely famous for being all IDGAF about stock splitting.  And ya know what?  a lot of smart people understood perfectly well.  73ed7b9f00518e35caf8ea3f966d2e8eac85666013dff9472e5079ea68a1a806.pngOver that same 20 year haul, BRK.A shows something like 4X, riding maybe eighty to three fifty, which sure as chit  beats the BASICALLY  NOTHING performance turned in by IBM!!!   DOES AN "AFFORDABLE" share / coin price  MATTER WHATSOEVER GENE? 

We really don't understand Simmon's brain fart.  Love thy altcoins, ok, but do it for all the right reasons, what EVER they may be to you - because they are fast, low fees, or private or great use case or dev team or fluffy pony or we love Bobby Bitcoin Lee pulling a satoshi WHATever.    But don't do it because the lower back of our brain agrees with the top of the spinal cord that any coin is "affordable" based only on some weird grocery store circuit of cultural thinking.   Remember the cults that were convinced the year 2000 would take us all out?  Cause, ya know, God calculates in base ten, and God is a numerologist and she is very fond of round numbers as monumental occasions... right... yeah yeah yeah.  

Think SATS Geno!!!   "shout it, shout it, shout it out loud --we gonna have a good time!"  Not for nothing you Queens boy, lemme tell ya, believe me believe SATS are VERY AFFORDABLE you chickenbrain.  

Or, then again, WTF do we know??? Sentiment and meme investing is the truth in a post truthy world.  Give in to the KISS army, sell all BTC and create a portfolio to invest only in coins trading in some "comfortable"  price range.   No one ever went broke underestimating the stupidity  and hero worship of all of us headbangers. 

Tell Beth we love her but we and the boys will be playing all night...
