Ghetto Millionaire by Amasing | COGNITIVE DRIFT

Ghetto Millionaire

We have all heard the horror stories of people who win the lottery and within a few years, wind up broke.



This isn’t the story of Ted Williams (aka man with the golden voice) story either!


Which by the way, he is unfortunately battling his own demons called — alcohol.


No, this is a story of a ghetto millionaire who tried to make an investment with his money so he can live the lap of luxury like all millionaires do. After all, accountants will tell you to invest your money to receive long term residuals and have a check coming in either once a month or at least once a year.


This ghetto millionaire is Ronnie Music Jr.; a man who has won 3 million dollars from a scratch off ticket and invested in meth as his retirement fund.


Authorities don’t know how much of the $3 million dollars he invested with the lottery winnings but Mr. Music believed it was worth the investment. Authorities seized $1.5 million street value of meth, firearms, ammunition, multiple cars, and about $600,000 in cash.


I sort of have sympathy for Mr. Music. I mean, here is a man that was trying to build for his future but he just happened to make the wrong investments.


That my friends, is what I call a ghetto millionaire! This might sound snobbish but wealth is something that needs to be acquired and conditioned. When you receive a large amount of money and you were never wealthy to begin with, you tend to spend it without knowing the consequences.


Here is some financial advice if you win the “big” lottery: if you’re not too old, don’t take the one lump sum. If you’re old, fuck it, you’re going to die anyway so take the lump sum. If you’re young, take the annual installment.

For two reasons: one, if you love money, the installment actually will give you more money than the lump sum. Two, even if you are a big fuck up and can’t manage money, you will still get a check at the end of the year.




Knowing my addictive personality, I better take the installment because even if I blew…blow my money, I’ll just have to live in a cardboard box until I get my next check. Don’t be a ghetto millionaire! — Amasing | COGNITIVE DRIFT

The Shame Machine: Cyber-Bullying, Internet Shaming & Online Sensationalism

 
The Outrage Machine | Retro Report | The New York Times

Shaming punishments have been around since Eve, but the advent of social media has created a new type of mob online.


Cyberbullying is bullying that occurs within the electronic technology network — devices, equipments, gadgets and machines such as cell phones, computers, tablets and smartwatches that involves communication tools such as social media sites, text messages, chat rooms, video apps and websites.


Internet shaming a.k.a. Online shaming is a form of social control that occurs when a person violates the norms of a particular community, and the social masses respond by publicly criticizing, demeaning and/or ostracizing the victim on a social platform



Online sensationalism are media coverage of alleged scandals, controversial stories and over-hyped/over-inflated reports to increase consumer attention and increase tabloid sales — in the overall efforts to increase profits...

...shame.

The Legend Of Leeroy Jenkins


The Legend Of Leeroy Jenkins

After watching an intense Minor League Baseball brawl: Jackals vs. Boulders via YouTube, a person posted a comment, "Let's do this..... LEEEEEEROY JEEEEENNNNNKINS!!" — which had garnered the attention of other commentators and basically had them cracking-up & dying of laughter.

Feeling totally left-out like a schoolmate "herb" who didn't understand a joke within an inner-circle, I transformed into Magnum P.I. and began an unrelenting Google Search — focusing entirely on this 'LEEROY JENKINS' character.

What I thought would take hours actually turned into one of thee most amusing, hilarious and whimsical discoveries of my pathetic online researching career!



"Leeroy Jenkins" was not the black kung-fu hero — "Bruce" Leroy Green from Berry Gordy's cult-classic film The Last Dragon (1985).

Nor was he even a colored person — after all that's said and done, he turned-out to be a mystical man known as Ben Schulz.

Look, to understand the true meaning and metaphysical prowess of, "LEEEEEEEEEEEEEROY JJJJJJJENKINSSSSSSSSsssss-ss!!!!!" is to understand inner-depths of a brazen, chicken-eating soul of a World Of Warcraft legend...



...a fearless and legendary warrior w/ a brain the size of a walnut:


LEEROY JENKINS



Know Your Meme: Leeroy Jenkins

Know Your Meme scientist Patrick revisits "Leeeeeeeeeeerooooy Jenkinnnnns!", a popular catchphrase first screamed by a World of Warcraft player of the same name, just before ignorantly charging headlong into battle and ruining his group's carefully laid out plans.




Leeroy Jenkins: Reimagined as a Short Film

Director Finn O'Hara re-made the classic viral video 'Leeroy Jenkins' into a short film.
