They call economics “the dismal science.” That’s half true. But the truth is, stocks are just poker, neither more scientific nor less. Big E “Economics” now…that’s astrology, or numerology. Ask Palmer Strauss.
Numerology for tombstones is easy. Just take the date of death or the date of birth, and keep adding up all the numbers in the date until you reach a single digit. Palmer Strauss was born on May 25, 1894.
Find me a lucky stiff whose date of birth and date of death work out to a perfect pair of lucky sevens. Send me proof.
Sennin, JSailor, Mack and I scoured Harbor Lawn for a pair of Lucky 7's. ((Shadow was there too, and he taught us this great trick about dropping 9s to make the math go faster. He'll deny that he helped, but he did.))
The only one we were able to find was Mr Morris Oretsky here. Husband and Father. We left him a flower and cleaned some gunk off his wife's side of the stone.
