The Big Short

December 27, 2015

Depressing that there are people who spend all their time thinking about money. Depressing that $30 million is a billion dollars short of a seat at the big kids' table. Depressing that people believed they could get a big-ass house for no money. Depressing that the banks never think about money as originating in or affecting jobs, homes, lives.

I learned:
1) that subprime = shit.
2) about ninja loans: no income, no job
3) that "Truth is poetry. And people fucking hate poetry."

But the movie was funny. Scathingly funny, depressingly funny, but funny. And it has Ryan Gosling!
