Bagheera kiplingi - a vegan spider. The photo taken from the cover of the 80's fitness magazine for spiders. (They promoted veganism, but it didn't stick to other species.)

Blame JRR Tolkien. Similarly for orcs and men from the East.

Boris Johnson 'Trying Vegan Diet' - Thanks To His Girlfriend
"His girlfriend Carrie Symonds, Former Director of Communications for the Conservatives, describes herself as a conservationist. She often tweets about the environment, animals, and plastic pollution, and has been credited with the shift."

BTW, I sold BYND with a very good profit, because I needed money for a charity project </virtue signalling> and also because I'm unsure what's going to happen next (I don't know of any further sprouting success announcements).

Reminds me of a certain Polish May-December political romance... also involving a PM.

Maybe he's finally found someone who will take care of him and give him proper upbringing. He already looks better on the new diet (lost a lot of flab). Washing his hair, applying some natural cosmetics on that irritated vascular skin, a new suit and a proper knot on his tie, ... the personality change will come along. Who knows, when she's done with him, he may be a completely different person. Maybe even a decent PM.

better JIT than J2L!

I had to minimise BYND regret so chucked out some 85 puts on the close, which expiry on Friday.
Nickels are so much sweeter in the shadow of the bulldozer. (but $2 seemed fairly chunky).

Fear and greed.   Same for all markets.

This thing is monster volatile! 
The decay is huge.. bought back the 95 puts for only $1 more that the 85s.
Interestingly, the vol backwardation is more gentle than I would expect  280%, 170%, 140%  for the next three weekly expires.

Anyhow, enough options gibber.,
