HKU History. Writes to better my writing skills.

Read to help a broke undergraduate who bet on GME to reduce his suffering.

Shouldn’t have tried to buy a stock without researching beforehand. The past few days discussion forum was flooding with information that GME was having a good prospect and surely we can expect a skyrocketing rise. Welp. How can I not be attracted by the shinies? Ends…

Molotov signs the German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact, 23 August 1939, Moscow. Standing behind Molotov: Stalin, Ribbentrop, Shaposhnikov

Introduction
