NFT of the first-ever tweet by @jack was claimed to be worth millions, but on auction the highest bid was just $280. Oof.

It's easy for you to say that now, but if you started investing in it back in 2000-2005 you would have been sitting pretty and would have laughed at your comment.

You can say that for hundreds stocks form 20 years ago.

And to be fair, BitCoin is still up 600% from 2 years ago.

Investing in a pyramid scheme is actually great, too, unless you're on the bottom tier.

Isn’t the bottom of the pyramid the strongest. You don’t want to be that last top brick.

It's a reference to a popular recent crypto meme tweet (below). The tweet is nonsense; the point is to mock how stupid it all is and sounds.

Several?! I'm hitting a much scarier sounding milestone next year.

I am 3.5 years away from 50. Is that several? Maybe I should have said in a few years.
