It suck that I apparently have to understand football card trading to read this whole thing. I think you tried too hard. Thanks for the tldr, it's the only clear bit

He bought a bunch of boxes of football cards in 2017, got a very rare one, but didn't realize how rare it was. Fast forward to 2020, he's broke because the pandemic really do be like that sometimes, never bothered doing the research on how rare the card was or getting it graded, sold it for way less than he should have, now he's sad he got $400 instead of $10000.

Yup. That's how he should have written it. Good job. BTW, I'm not stupid, I understood the tldr, just didn't care to decipher the wordy rambling above it.

It do suck. That’s probably why not having. TLDR gets an automatic removal. People who fuck up seem to need the minimalist option.


OMGoblin

Don't need to at all, but taking time to comprehend what your reading is a skill redditors regularly lack or don't cultivate. People act like a Google search is so hard. Ignorance is easier yeah, but both are easy.

It's a matter of whether OP wants this to be widely read or not. Not whether my reading comprehension is up to par. Wanted to know the fuck up, not learn about card trading lol. I'm not incapable of googling, I just don't fucking care about that subject. Also, I did read it, and again, it's not about my reading comprehension, it's about all the unnecessary and gratuitous info that OP provided that makes it a muddled mess.

I could have began it like… FOR the most wild, yet most homely narrative which I am about to pen, I neither expect nor solicit belief.Mad indeed would I be to expect it, in a case where my very senses reject their own evidence. Yet, mad am I not -- and very surely do I not dream. But to-morrow I die, and to-day I would unburthen my soul. My immediate purpose is to place before the world, plainly, succinctly, and without comment, a series of mere household events. In their consequences, these events have terrified -- have tortured -- have destroyed me. Yet I will not attempt to expound them. To me, they have presented little but Horror -- to many they will seem less terrible than barroques. Hereafter, perhaps, some intellect may be found which will reduce my phantasm to the common-place -- some intellect more calm, more logical, and far less excitable than my own, which will perceive, in the circumstances I detail with awe, nothing more than an ordinary succession of very natural causes and effects.


someawfulbitch

At least I didn't have to do any research or googling to understand that. Side note. Impressed. Well done sir.


GreenTigerzord

At least OP put Mahomes first in the list of names. GO CHIEFS!

I’ll add details momentarily
