WOOOOW!!!! This past week was absolutely INSANE. I made a post last Wednesday with a few new varieties and restocked the shelves for what I usually have in stock. By the time I woke up on Thursday, almost everything in the shop was SOLD OUT! It was a lot of work on my end, but I couldn't be happier to see so many of you getting started (or continuing) with this fantastic hobby. I can't stop smiling at the amount of support I've received this past week, and a special THANK YOU to everyone who helped me network to get some masks and essential supplies to those in need due to COVID-19. While this virus is truly a tragedy worldwide, lets take something positive from this time. Spend some quality time with your family (if they live with you of course), get creative, call your mom, and get started in this hobby! It's all about your mindset...lets all stay positive and uplifted during this challenging time. If anyone needs someone to talk to, please reach out. I'm here for ALL of you and love you dearly.
The varieties listed on this post are the varieties I have available at 5PM CST on Wednesday, April 8. I will not be updating this post through the week, but inventory on the site will always be up to date.
I've been working non-stop to restock and be able to share with the masses, and thanks to my dear friend Dr. Rot, I've had approximately a shit ton of help with the website. Instead of learning as I go and spending hours trying to change a layout, add a page and whatnot, I was able to spend that precious time this week in the lab to be sure everyone gets a chance at the varieties they love. He has helped me out tremendously, and will continue to make improvements to the site. ALL FEEDBACK IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! If there's something you'd like to see on the site, or any ways to improve, I'm all ears. Please send me a message on Reddit, chat on the website, or email :)
While selling out in less than 24 hours is a great feeling with all the love and support from the community, it's not ideal. I have a new system in place to *try* and keep up with inventory. Until further notice, I'll be making a post every Wednesday at 5PM CST, and updating inventory on the site. When a variety runs out, I'll do my best to make sure it is restocked for the following week's "WYCO WEDNESDAY" post.
I greatly appreciate everyone's patience and understanding this past week with orders. I've been able to fine tune some of my processes to be sure all orders go out on time, and most importantly, accurate. I felt TERRIBLE this past week when a few orders were not 100% accurate due to an inventory error on the site. Some of you received substitutions with your order, along with a note explaining what was missing, what was included instead, and a promise that I'll have the missing varieties in the mail to you this week. This issue has been corrected, and anyone who didn't have a 100% accurate order will be shipping out tomorrow AM with the rest of my shipments, with a little something extra for the wait. I wanted to get the majority of your shipment out when you ordered so you could get started, and the rest will follow shortly after in a separate box. Thanks for not hating me :)
UPDATES: I've added a few new regular cubensis varieties to the site! By popular demand, F+, Texas Orange Cap, Texas Yellow Cap, Mazatapec, S. American, Costa Rican, NorMak, and Mexican have been added, while I also restocked some varieties that were previously posted but sold out. I'm also very excited to announce the addition of 2 NEW EXOTICS, offered for $15 each alone, or $10 if adding to a 5/$30 cubensis pack! Pan Cam Sandoz and Ovoideocystidiata are the recent exotic additions, while I restocked Cyans, Azures, Aztecorum, Allenii, Mexicana Tampanensis, Subaeruninosa, and PENIS ENVY UNCUT!!!!!!
PLEASE USE COUPON CODES ON www.millywyco.com FOR DISCOUNTS!! For a while, some of the coupon codes were not working, and I didn't have the time available to devote to fixing the issue. All should be working now. Please see below:
2PACK - $20 for two cubensis syringes
5PACK - Classic and most popular $30 dealio for 5 cubensis varieties
NEEDMORE - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 1 exotic add-on for $10...total $40
NEEDMORE2 - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 2 exotic add-ons for $20...total $50
NEEDMORE3 - 5 cubensis varieties for $30 plus 3 exotic add-ons for $30...total $60
...and so on. Currently, this is setup for up to 5 exotic add-ons. If you have an order that does not meet these codes, such as adding on more than 5 exotics, getting 7 cubensis varieties, etc. please send me a message and I will build you a coupon code to match your order in a timely manner.
WEBSITE ADDITIONS - Calendar added! This is still a work in progress, but here you'll find any contests, promotions, giveaways, and upcoming varieties to look out for! When a variety runs out, I'll post on the calendar which day and time you'll be able to see them restocked. We've also added a fun countdown ticker till the next restock so you can get excited about some of the varieties coming up as I run out.
Forum added! To encourage community involvement, we've added a forum section to answer some common questions and help out in the best way we can. PLEASE NOTE the same rules apply on the website as do here on Reddit. That means no discussion of anything cultivation related! Keep it clean :)
News and Updates page added! More content will be coming soon on these pages, and I'm suuuuper excited to be able to FINALLY implement some ideas I've had for a long time that I think you'll really like as well :)
SHIPPING UPDATE - ALL ORDERS PLACED BY MIDNIGHT will ship out first thing in the AM. My mail is picked up at 10AM every day, so I need to have these ready the night before. I really didn't have a problem running to the post office once a day as my excuse to get out of the house for "essential business", but me being a diabetic has much of my family and friends worried that this virus won't think twice about taking me out. In an effort to reduce stress and anxiety (which surely weakens immune system), I will be shipping from home for the duration of quarantine. Thank you for understanding.
Much of the satisfaction I get throughout my day comes from YOU GUYS (and gals), from the positive encouragement, connections made and regular pleasant conversation. Keep sharing the recent positivity in your life, the cat facts, and warmth that's spread through this community. Be persistent, never give up and never stop learning!! I LOVE YOU ALL DEARLY <3
Please check out the updated list of inventory below. I'll make a post when I am able to get my hands on some other requested varieties, and as always, I accept trades! Feel free to send me a message if you have a request for something I do not have in stock. My wish list is your wish list! I'm sure we band together and find it if we try.
Shipping in US only at the moment, not available to ID, GA, or CA (yes, really)
Spore syringes are for microscopy use only
Any reference to cultivation will exclude you from placing an order and we may never speak again. I want to talk to you. Don't do it!
There are no exceptions to these rules. You have been warned.
PAYMENT METHODS ACCEPTED: Major Credit/Debit cards, Zelle, Cash App, Venmo, Google Pay, Apple Pay, Bitcoin and Amazon gift cards
PayPal is NOT available to me at this time.
Also, I am the fee master! I get charged fees left and right that I don't pass on to you from shipping and third party payments. If you'd like to throw me a tip, however much it may be, I'd love you forever and it really does make a difference! These types of people have allowed me to share with some who are less fortunate. On the other hand, if times are tough for you right now, let's talk about it!
ALL PRICES INCLUDE USPS SHIPPING WITH TRACKING!! I COVER ALL STANDARD SHIPPING COSTS.
Please add an additional $5 to any order if you prefer 2-3 day tracked Priority Mail shipping. (90% of my Priority Mail shipments are 2 day. Occasionally, rural areas are 3 day)
1 syringe for $15
2 syringes for $20
5 syringes for $30
Golden Teacher (LIMITED TO 2 PER ORDER!)
A classic variety for any mycologist. Pretty standard, easy to work with and almost everyone starts here. Can't go wrong with GT! They go fassst. Currently limited to 2 per order with mix-n-match due to extreme popularity.
Albino A+ (AA+)
While "true" albino's are just a mutation, this variety gets it's name from the leucistic trait of having less pigment than other varieties, appearing completely white when mature. One of the all time most popular varieties I've had the pleasure of offering!
Amazonian
Originating from the Amazon rain forest, this variety is known to produce large,dense fruits in the wild, and certainly an interesting study under the scope :)
B+
Pronounced "Be Positive"!...Or at least that's what I like to say. The "+" is for the size! Looks a lot like Golden Teacher, only bigger. A favorite among beginning and advances mycologists alike and other than GT, probably the most popular variety.
Blue Meanie
This is the cubensis variety, not to be confused with Pan Cyan, the original Blue Meanie. One of my most popular varieties when it's in stock!
Costa Rican
Ecuadorian
F+
Fiji
Lizard King
Mazatapec
McKennaii
Origin unknown, but holds a special place in my heart, due to being named after the late Terrence McKenna <3
Mexican
NorMak
PES Amazon
With genetics from Pacific Exotica Spora (PES), this variety has a few stories to go along with it. Really interesting study if you care to look them up, but it was originally thought to be a cubensis/azurescens hybrid, accounting for the "A" in PESA. After much controversy, most identify this variety as Amazon or Amazonian.
PES Hawaiian
One of the wider caps in the species, PES (Pacific Exotica Spora) Hawaiian are uniquely pleasant to look at under the scope. One of the quickest movers on the slide, and easily one of my favorites to study!
Rusty Whyte
Another leucistic variety, these always look super cool! Red spores and white cap? Hells yeah.
S. American
Texas Orange Cap
Texas Yellow Cap
Z-Strain
Much like Golden Teacher, but this variety seems to have some great positive characteristics that sets it aside. Very fast and aggressive under the scope, this one will not disappoint!
THE FOLLOWING EXOTICS ARE NOT PART OF THE 5/$30 MIX-n-MATCH DEALIO, but can be added to the 5/$30 pack for $10 as an add-on, or $15 each by themselves. These are NOT cubensis, and NOT recommended for beginners. USE COUPON CODE "NEEDMORE" on www.millywyco.com to add ONE EXOTIC on to a 5 pack. Want 2 Exotics? Use code NEEDMORE2 or NEEDMORE3 for 3, etc. Currently this is setup to add a maximum of 5 exotics....if you need more, please message me and I'll create a unique coupon code to enter for your order :)
****Penis Envy #6 (PE6)***\*
This actually IS a cubensis variety, but added to exotics list due to rarity and popularity. NOT part of the pick 5.
****Penis Envy Uncut (PEU)***\*
This actually IS a cubensis variety, but added to exotics list due to rarity and popularity. NOT part of the pick 5.
****Ps. Azurescens***\*
****Ps. Aztecorum***\*
****Ps. Allenii***\*
****Ps. Mexicana Tampanensis***\*
****Ps. Ovoideocystidiata***\*
****Panaeolus Cambodginiensis-SANDOZ***\*
****Panaeolus Cyanescens***\*

All syringes are 12cc/mL and come capped with a sterile tip cap, and also include an 18ga blunt tip needle and alcohol pads. Syringes are made in a lab grade environment and the utmost care and attention is the highest priority to be sure they are sterile. Anything exposed to an open air environment is subject to contamination, but I take every precaution possible to minimize this risk. I cannot "guarantee" they are 100% sterile, but I can guarantee that if you have an issue, I will make it right. I really do love to help, and if something happens, I'd like to know about it so I can fix the issue instead of you getting frustrated or giving up!
To ensure equal quantity of spores in each syringe, and for adequate suspension of the spores in the solution, I use a magnetic stir plate. Very often, this does such a good job of breaking up clumps of spores that it will appear to be sparse. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE! There are still a TON of spores in each syringe, even if you can't see them individually (though most of my syringes appear to have a very good amount of visible spores...even with my horrible eyesight!). You can compare and contrast to see the blackish/purple tint to ensure every syringe is packed with spores. If a spore clump forms during transportation, simply give it a good flick with your finger and vigorously shake to break it up or free it from clinging to the wall of the syringe before examining.
Syringes ship in individual bags clearly labeled as to specific variety and born on date, bubble wrapped and shipped through USPS tracked shipping (discreet) within 24 hours of payment. I send tracking info soon after payment and give updates along the (super quick) way.
Please PM me with order details, including state shipping to, payment method, and the selected syringes for your order. Any messages referring to spores being used for anything other than microscopy use will be ignored. Don't do it.
THANK YOU ALL so much again for your continued support!! I appreciate it more than you know! MUSH LOVE
P.S. In no way am I trying to be an imposter. I AM NOT WILLY MYCO. I chose this u/ a while back as sort of a play on words and tribute to a legend most of us recognize, long before I became a spore vendor. I don't want anyone to think I am trying to pass off as him, though I do strive for his level of excellence and dedication to the craft! I appreciate all of the kind words, though, from people saying they learned from "my" videos. I wish I could pass on those notes to RR himself.
Cheers and MUSH LOVE!

Analytics Terrorists

Data is today's gold (more or less)
By 2030, data collection and analysis will become the basis of all future service offerings and business models. The volume of data generated in the real estate industry is attracting international technology companies and other new market participants.
Facebook, for example, has an immense amount of power and can pay for the best infrastructure, Oculus VR, and engineers around the world. Do you know how they pay for all that? Yes you do. Not so long ago, I bet you still remember that marketeers paid fortunes on trying to get the best focus groups possible to test their shitty products, and get feedback on them.
Today there is no need for someone at the mall to offer you a 10% discount coupon to test and review a product. Today we are ridiculously far beyond that!
Do you ever wonder how Sylicon Valley became the shadow state's new girlfriend? Well, we are at a point in history where there is so much data out there, so accurate, so vast; but then, like apocalyptic horsemen, come along ways to exploit them: Namely, data mining, analytics, and machine learning. I'm sure I can think of a fourth one later so that we can make them the 4 hoursemen properly.
Let's move on and take a second to recall that today's consumer CPUs are insanely fast in processing. Our fucking phones are.
You now what comes next.....
Remember that your online presence is most of the time embedded with "contacts".... Which means, you also share your connections; hence you are a network. Not just a node.
Now let's take a look at the kind of shit (your data) you willingly (or not) share each second of your lives through your phones, wearables, and browsers:
For each of these, remember: You are a network, not a node. And you are also a dumbass. (You'll see why next)
Have you tried opening any kind of internet account lately? Yep, they ask you to link to your phone. The phone is the best place to track someone because they have different sets of identifiers such as the IMEI, and so fingerprinting is a breeze.
Now think about all the other shit you do on your phone. And if you are adventurous jump into your favorite distopic search engine and look for Ultrasonic Beacons. Here's a starting place: https://hackaday.com/2017/05/04/ultrasonic-tracking-beacons/
2001: A Space Odyssey is a great example of how technofuturists imaged AI would be in 2001. But remember this was late 60s... and AI was already doing some pretty cool things. Except there was something missing... well it turns out that once they got a hold of neural networks, modelling and tuning, the most valuable part was kinda missing: TRAINING DATA. For these types of ML, training requires huge amounts of data, and of course actually knowing what the fuck you are doing.
Today, we've made some advancements in Machine Learning for sure, new algorithms, and more sophisticated neural networks, even generational ones. But the true reason Machine Learning is in vogue once again after the 70s is becuase we are producing so much data... Yes I'm talking about:
1) We train visual recognition with captchas
2) We train speech recognitiion with assistants.... back then speech recognition sucked because it used a small set of recordings typically recorded by the computer scientist themselves. So if they all had a certain Illinoisey accent, then you were pretty much fucked. Today, so many fat people talk to those things, asking for pizza with so many expressions, accents, pitch, speech impediments, etc, etc, etc... So this is an AI which basically can understand much more than we EVER imagined before... Musk doesn't sound so Sara Connory now does he?
3) We train marketing AI: No explanation needed
4) Behavior Analytics; Maybe I'll talk about it some other day if you are interested.
5) Yep you dirty bastards, you know it was cumming: Your porn habits... Oh yeah, they know all the shit you get off to. Oh those VPNs and TOR, of course you know they are not transparent. So good luck you perv!
So what we are doing today is producing so much data, on so many aspects of our lives, almost in realtime (why do I have to charge my phone every 5 goddamn minutes? now you know). And we can process it with even our phones, we can study the data, we can have machines study it for us and make correlations we never dreamed of. We can make social and economic predictions. We can understand what kind of manipulations work by A/B testing those predictions after doing a PsyOp, for example. We can have AI learn from our data. We have static patterns on our lives: We all eat, sleep, have sexual urges.
Analytics Terrorists
If you are finding all of this new and exciting, well shame on you, because the Chinese already stepped up they game and went all in. We all know how they like to inspire the Black Mirror writers. So let's talk a little about cyberwarefare.... and contaminating the... gold?
If data is the new gold, then data gatherers are the miners (shit this is starting to sound like Bitcoin, but please suspend that relation for now.) So we have big companies now paying people to generate data (data gatherers). Take pictures of trees, or label them (taggers)
So if we had an army of real or virtual bots, well orchestrated (yes I know all about cloud protection and shit).. we could definitely manipulate this very valuable data. So not so golden after all.
The truth is that HTTP and other network protocols are well studied by the best of breed of intelligence agencies, they know all the exploits of everything, including network protocols. Except for cryptography, it works, because it's math, not some shitty code. If this sound a bit crazy, just search for shill jobs in Fiverr.... and that's just for "consumers".
A very well orchestrated data attack (well orchestrated means Stuxnet planning level) could potentially disturb AIs, Analytics, Mining, Forecasting, and all the things that the hoursemen brought. There are for sure many technical challenges, and I sometimes wonder on how well paid and crucial Security engineers are becoming... They will be the new militar rockstars.
In a surveillance world... with so many centralized monsters studying and selling our data, we have to start thinking about how this very data could slave us, make us 99% predictable, and start thinking about privacy like personal hygene. We have to understand how basic encryption works. Have to understand that using "pa55word" as your password is like not washing your hands. We have to understand what fingerprinting is.
Data will be exploited and manipulated as part of bigger cyber attacks. Those who do it, whether from the government, activists, or just some random dude who likes to fuck with search queries... will become some kind of new terrorists or (the good guys) anarchists.
I'm honestly sorry that the future doesn't look like Blade Runner... I don't know why there are so much ponies, and spongebob memes. But the truth is that we are in a reality very similar to the one in Terminator with Skynet. Only we jack off to Skynet and tell her our deepest secrets.
So who is John Connor? And why is he starting to sound like a cyber messiah? Thank you for reading me.
I apologize for my shitty English, bad jokes, and grammar. At least I didn't use puns, fuck you Reddit.

How to Buy Modafinil in the UK | What You Must Know

How to Buy Modafinil in the UK | What You Must Know

Are you curious about how to buy Modafinil in the UK these days?
Then you’re in the perfect place.
Here’s the skinny:
While the smart drug is technically regarded as prescription-only in the United Kingdom, you can simply and legally buy Modafinil online – whether you have a doctor’s prescription or not.

But there’s a little bit more to it…
So in this comprehensive guide, I talk about everything you need to know about getting the world’s most popular smart drug while living in the United Kingdom.
While I’m not from the UK, I certainly know how to order Modafinil online while living in the country. Luckily, it’s not too difficult these days.
After buying nootropics online for nearly a half decade, I’ve found out which vendors will send your legit smart drugs with fast shipping. These online Modafinil pharmacies will also guarantee your order. You’ll get your smart drugs or you’ll get your money back. No questions asked.
When ordering from these types of online Modafinil vendors, there’s no risk for you! Buying Modafinil in the United Kingdom has never been easier.
In this guide, we’ll talk about:
This United Kingdom Modafinil guide is comprehensive to ensure anything and everything you need to know is included. I wanted to make sure every question about Modafinil and the UK was answered.
Of course, I’ve gotta hit you with a quick disclaimer before we dive in…

What is Modafinil?

Now, you might just want to know where you can buy Modafinil online in the U.K. – which is perfectly fine.
But some of y’all may want a little more information about what Modafinil is and why so many successful individuals use the smart drug. As the world’s most popular smart drug, Modafinil has gained popularity for one reason. Why?
Because Modafinil works.
The smart drug is the premier cognitive enhancer on the market for a reason. If you take Modafinil, you will find benefits like:
They say coffee is the lifeblood of champions, but I’m of the opinion that Modafinil is.
Overall, Modafinil will help you crush the day like nothing else. You’ll feel like you can accomplish anything and everything you want to. Now, Modafinil isn’t the “Limitless” pill in real life. You won’t write a full novel in one day. But it’s pretty darned close.
In the late 1980s, French researchers were working to create a wakefulness agent to treat common ailments like (Source):
The pharmaceutical drug was named Provigil and quickly made its way to the United States, the land of overuse and abuse.
It didn’t take long for CEOs and grad students to see the value of Provigil. In the blink of an eye, every hustler on the east coast of the U.S. was taking Modafinil to gain an advantage over the competition.
The smart drug craze had officially begun.
Why?
Because it’s easy to beat the competition when you can pop one pill and focus for upwards of 12-15+ straight hours. There’s a reason you’re curious how to get your hands on Modafinil in the United Kingdom.

Is Modafinil Legal in the UK?

You should know I’m not a lawyer. Certainly no legal scholar. Just a dude who knows way too much about smart drugs and how they benefit people looking to achieve more in life.
With that in mind, this section about Modafinil in the UK and legalities should be taken as hyperbole. Nothing less. Nothing more.
So, is it legal to buy Provigil in the United Kingdom? Well, yes and no.
Modafinil is fully regulated as a prescription-only medication by the government. But it’s a bit of a grey area.
Here’s how I’ll break it down:
You cannot get the smart drug for off-the-label uses, like cognitive enhancement, from a pharmacy in the United Kingdom. You’d have to prove you have narcolepsy or sleep apnea to a doctor within the country.
However, what about ordering online? Are there legal issues to worry about when buying Modafinil online and shipping it to the United Kingdom?
Well, I don’t believe so.
If you’re buying online…
Here’s why:
Since Modafinil is not listed on the Misuse of Drugs Act, it’s not illegal to possess the substance for personal use – even if you don’t have a prescription.
In practical terms, this means that you can order Modafinil online in the United Kingdom and have little issue receiving the product.
Even if import controls “catches” your smart drugs in-transit, there are no legal repercussions you need to worry about. The worst that happens? Your package gets confiscated by import controls and customs destroys it. If that happens, your online Modafinil pharmacy will issue you a refund or reshipment. Whatever you want.
No harm. No foul.
–> Is Modafinil legal in the UK?
In my opinion, yes. Well, at least it’s legal enough to order online without worry. But again, I’m no lawyer and you’ll have to make that choice for yourself. Always do your own research and make smart choices.

How to get a Modafinil Prescription in the UK

While Modafinil laws in the UK don’t seem to be an issue for the vast majority of individuals, some people might be interested in how to get a Modafinil prescription here.
The reality?
It can be difficult to get a Modafinil prescription in the UK.
This is for one reason and one reason only…
Modafinil can only be prescribed in the UK for ailments like narcolepsy and excessive daytime sleepiness due to sleep apnea or shift sleep disorder.
For ‘off-the-label’ uses, such as taking Modafinil as a smart drug or nootropic, doctors in the country tend to avoid writing prescriptions for it.
Here’s why:
Modafinil laws in the UK and the risks a doctor takes when prescribing something off-the-label here.
UK doctors are faced with far greater legal risk when prescribing medications off-the-label due to laws and legislation provided by UK.gov:
The responsibility that falls on healthcare professionals when prescribing an unlicensed medicine or a medicine off-label may be greater than when prescribing a licensed medicine within the terms of its licence. Prescribers should pay particular attention to the risks associated with using unlicensed medicines or using a licensed medicine off-label.
Aka a doctor could get into legal trouble if they prescribed a drug off-the-label that caused someone a health problem.
Most doctors simply aren’t willing to take this risk when you walk into their office asking about Provigil for cognitive enhancement.
Therefore, to get a Modafinil prescription in the UK, you’ll have to prove that you have narcolepsy or excessive daytime sleepiness due to sleep apnea or shift sleep disorder.
That’s the only way to do it.
As such, many have found buying Modafinil online far easier while living in the United Kingdom.
Which is what we’ll discuss below…

Where to Buy Modafinil Online in the UK | 2020 Guide

If you’re looking to buy Modafinil in the United Kingdom, you’re in the right spot. Below you’ll find the best online Modafinil vendors that ship to the country.
After working with over a half dozen pharmacies throughout the years, I’ve found the vendors below to be the absolute best.
All my preferred Modafinil sellers offer:
But enough with the ado, let’s get into things and see where you can buy Modafinil online in the UK.
Here are my favorite sellers:

As of writing this article, BuyModa is the premier Modafinil vendor in the whole entire world. Bar none. These guys are the best. If you’re buying Modafinil in the United Kingdom, I’d recommend taking a look at these guys.
Their customer service is impeccable, the pricing is low, and their Bitcoin discount is solid.
I’m talking a 35% BTC discount on top of their already LOW, LOW prices. Some of the lowest in the industry.
Plus, Modafinil orders in the UK from Buy Moda will arrive within 6-10 days, with most orders arriving within a week. That’s pretty quick shipping!
And the most important part…
You can pay for Buy Moda orders with credit cards.
Like all legitimate Modafinil vendors, Buy Moda offers guaranteed delivery. You either get your order or they’ll send you a full refund or a reshipment. It’s your choice. You have no worries here.
But do know…the customer service from Buy Moda is truly second to none. I’ve yet to find a Modafinil vendor that takes care of their customers in the way Buy Moda does. You’ll be in great hands when ordering here.
Overall, a great option for those in the UK.
Oh, and one more thing…
When you spend over $100 bucks on any order with the world’s best Modafinil vendor, Buy Moda — you also get 30 free pills with the order. Aka more savings!
If you’re buying Modafinil in the UK, another place I’d recommend checking out is Modafinil XL.
These guys do a good job shipping Modafinil to the UK. Modafinil XL is known for great customer service, low prices, legit products, and some of the best discounts in the industry.
You can save up to 35% on your order from this vendor with their Bitcoin coupons.
Shipping times to the UK vary, but most orders arrive within 6-10 days from Modafinil XL. If for some reason your package doesn’t arrive, you’ll get a full refund or reshipment. Whatever you prefer.
Overall…highly recommended!
This is another legitimate Modafinil vendor for any and all living in the United Kingdom. They’ve been around quite some time and do a great job.
Another vendor who holds Modafinil stock in Europe is Eufinil.
In fact, these guys only ship to Europe. It’s what they do. It’s their specialty. So you know they do it well.
While I prefer other vendors above for larger orders because they’re generally cheaper, I found one heck of a use for Eufinil.
If you’re looking to buy Modafinil in the United Kingdom, but don’t want to spend tons of cash…
Eufinil allows you to make small orders.
You can order as low as 20 servings of Modafinil from these guys — which ends up being about $60 Euros shipped.
Not a bad deal at all.
Eufinil also offers fast shipping to the UK because they hold stock in the country, guaranteed delivery, and great customer services.
Many in the United Kingdom get their orders from Eufinil in less than 3 business days. That’s fast, fast!
Overall, they’re an ideal option for anyone looking to test Modafinil out.

Shipping Modafinil | United Kingdom Edition

If you’re worried about shipping Modafinil to the UK, you needn’t be!
Why?
Because all of the major online Modafinil retailers offer guaranteed delivery to the UK.
Every. Single. One.
This leads me to believe that customs and border security in the United Kingdom simply are not concerned with generic Modafinil and Provigil being shipped to the country from other parts of the world…mainly India.
Because these vendors guarantee their delivery to the UK. This means they’ll refund your full order if the package somehow gets taken by customs.
This wouldn’t be profitable if a lot of packages were being taken by the government and customs officials.
Furthermore, there’s little to no legal risk to you as an individual ordering Modafinil online in the UK.
As previously discussed, Modafinil is not on the Misuse of Drugs Act – as of the writing of this article. This means possession of Modafinil is not a crime in the United Kingdom.
Meaning you are not committing a crime buying Modafinil online in the UK and shipping it to your home. The worst case scenario is customs confiscates the smart drugs and you get a refund from the seller.
There has yet to be a documented case of someone having legal issues in the UK because they bought Modafinil for personal use from inside the country.
So shipping Modafinil to the UK shouldn’t be a concern whatsoever.
P.S: Just remember that I’m no lawyer.

Generic Modafinil and Armodafinil in the UK

You can buy Modafinil and Armodafinil from a pharmacy in the U.K. if you get a prescription from a doctor in the country – although that can be harder said than done.
Once you have that prescription, you just go to the pharmacy in the U.K. and pick up brand name Modafinil like:
You can find these brand name Modafinil products in U.K. pharmacies, although we’ve found Provigil to be far more common.
For Britains looking to order Modafinil online, popular generic Modafinil and Armodafinil products are:
Each one of these products do a damn good job and offer solid cognitive benefits. However, after testing all of these products, I do have a few recommendations for my British readers and those living in the country.
Modalert is probably the strongest generic Modafinil product you’ll find in the U.K. I couldn’t recommend it enough.
Modvigil, on the other hand, is a cheap alternative for individuals looking for generic Modafinil.
Searching for Modafinil’s little cousin Armodafinil in the UK? Then I certainly prefer Waklert. That being said, Artvigil is a cheaper form of generic Armodafinil.
Overall, I tend to use Modalert and Waklert.
I’ve simply found these products to be superior to all other forms of generic Modafinil and recommend them to anyone looking to buy Modafinil online in the United Kingdom.

Adrafinil in the UK, Prescription-Free Alternative

I’m of the opinion that ordering Modafinil in the United Kingdom from an online vendor shouldn’t be an issue.
However, I know a few of you may have concerns.
If that’s you, there’s also viable Modafinil alternatives to consider. These nootropics are 100% legal and offer decent cognitive benefits.
One of my personal favorites? Enter Adrafinil.
Adrafinil is a 100% legal nootropic that’s available over-the-counter.
It works like Modafinil because the body essentially converts Adrafinil to the active ingredients in Modafinil upon ingestion (Source).
As such, it takes a little longer for Adrafinil to kick in when compared to Modafinil. Plus, this stuff isn’t as strong as Modafinil.
But it works! You’ll find cognitive benefits from Adrafinil.
If you’re looking to get your hands on over-the-counter smart drugs, like Adrafinil, this is my favorite vendor.

Other Nootropics

For those curious about other nootropic options and potential Modafinil alternatives, below you’ll find a few more suggestions.
But please understand…
Modafinil is the ‘King’ with regards to smart drugs.
Armodafinil in the UK would then be the ‘Queen’ here, followed by Adrafinil as the ‘Prince’ – if we’re taking that little analogy to its logical conclusion.
Still, there’s a few other nootropics I love for UK residents. Here’s a few of my favorites:

That about wraps it up, mate.
Everything you need to know about how to buy Modafinil in the UK. The details you need to get the good stuff. To get your hands on the world’s most popular smart drugs — at great prices.
We talk about if Modafinil is legal in the United Kingdom, where you can buy it online, and so much more.
If you have any questions about buying Modafinil in the UK, feel free to sound off in the comments below.
I’ll get back to you with a detailed answer.

Americans, heads up! Congress is trying to pass a anti-crypto bill.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/1241/text#toc-idea0e9489fc8f46379f95bb56c8bbbda5
This is a new bill that was introduced on the floor of the US Senate entitled, “Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017.”
It basically says everything is evil..
  1. Cash is Evil
  2. Bitcoin/Crypto is Evil
  3. Prepaid Phones are Evil
  4. Gift Cards/Vouchers/Coupons are Evil
These people are certifiably insane. Among the bill’s sweeping provisions, the government aims to greatly extend its authority to seize your assets through “Civil Asset Forfeiture”.
Civil Asset Forfeiture rules allow the government to take whatever they want from you, without a trial or any due process. This new bill adds a laundry list of offenses for which they can legally seize your assets… all of which pertain to money laundering and other financial crimes.
Here’s the thing, though: they’ve also vastly expanded on the definition of such ‘financial crimes’, including failure to fill out a form if you happen to be transporting more than $10,000 worth of ‘monetary instruments’.
Have too much cash? You’d better tell the government.
If not, they’re authorizing themselves in this bill to seize not just the money you didn’t report, but ALL of your assets and bank accounts. They even go so far as to specifically name “safety deposit boxes” among the various assets that they can seize if you don’t fill out the form.
This is unbelievable on so many levels.
It’s crazy to begin with that these people are so consumed by the fact that someone has $10,000 in cash.
But it’s even crazier that they’re threatening to take EVERYTHING that you own merely for not filling out a piece of paper, without any due process whatsoever. Oh, and on top of civil asset forfeiture penalties, there are also criminal penalties.
Right now according to current law they can imprison you for up to FIVE YEARS for not filling out the form. Five years.
But apparently that doesn’t go far enough so this bill aims to double the criminal penalty to TEN years in prison. Further, their bill wants to pull any business which “issues” cryptocurrency under the anti-money laundering regulatory umbrella.
Here’s where these people demonstrate that they have no idea what they’re talking about.
No one “issues” Bitcoin. There’s no Bitcoin central bank. There’s no Chairman of Bitcoin who decides on a whim to increase the supply.
Bitcoin is created automatically amounts that are predetermined by its code. It’s software.
So the Senate is essentially trying to force the Bitcoin core software to comply with money laundering regulations.
The bill also attempts to drop a major bomb on Bitcoin by including it in the list of monetary instruments that must be reported when entering or leaving the US.
CALL your congress & house of representatives and tell them not to pass this bill!

Bill against cryto currencies.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/1241/text#toc-idea0e9489fc8f46379f95bb56c8bbbda5
This is a new bill that was introduced on the floor of the US Senate entitled, “Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017.”
It basically says everything is evil..
  1. Cash is Evil
  2. Bitcoin/Crypto is Evil
  3. Prepaid Phones are Evil
  4. Gift Cards/Vouchers/Coupons are Evil
These people are certifiably insane. Among the bill’s sweeping provisions, the government aims to greatly extend its authority to seize your assets through “Civil Asset Forfeiture”.
Civil Asset Forfeiture rules allow the government to take whatever they want from you, without a trial or any due process.
This new bill adds a laundry list of offenses for which they can legally seize your assets… all of which pertain to money laundering and other financial crimes.
Here’s the thing, though: they’ve also vastly expanded on the definition of such ‘financial crimes’, including failure to fill out a form if you happen to be transporting more than $10,000 worth of ‘monetary instruments’.
Have too much cash? You’d better tell the government.
If not, they’re authorizing themselves in this bill to seize not just the money you didn’t report, but ALL of your assets and bank accounts.
They even go so far as to specifically name “safety deposit boxes” among the various assets that they can seize if you don’t fill out the form.
This is unbelievable on so many levels.
It’s crazy to begin with that these people are so consumed by the fact that someone has $10,000 in cash.
But it’s even crazier that they’re threatening to take EVERYTHING that you own merely for not filling out a piece of paper, without any due process whatsoever.
CALL YOUR CONGRESS MEN AND SENATORS TO TELL THEM TO NOT SIGN THIS EMAIL WORKS ASWELL https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/1241/text#toc-idea0e9489fc8f46379f95bb56c8bbbda5
Oh, and on top of civil asset forfeiture penalties, there are also criminal penalties.
Right now according to current law they can imprison you for up to FIVE YEARS for not filling out the form. Five years.
But apparently that doesn’t go far enough so this bill aims to double the criminal penalty to TEN years in prison.
Further, their bill wants to pull any business which “issues” cryptocurrency under the anti-money laundering regulatory umbrella.
Here’s where these people demonstrate that they have no idea what they’re talking about.
No one “issues” Bitcoin. There’s no Bitcoin central bank. There’s no Chairman of Bitcoin who decides on a whim to increase the supply.
Bitcoin is created automatically amounts that are predetermined by its code. It’s software.
So the Senate is essentially trying to force the Bitcoin core software to comply with money laundering regulations.
The bill also attempts to drop a major bomb on Bitcoin, monero by including it in the list of monetary instruments that must be reported when entering or leaving the US.

Derivatives will kill us all!

My first RI!
I brought this up here a few weeks ago but I thought it was worth expanding on. Our exhibit of badeconomics:
BIS says there are $1 quadrillion in derivatives right now on earth. The last time there was this much in derivatives was before 2008. The banks made sure they can take your money if they crash in the last budget bill passed by U.S. How much is $1,000,000,000,000.00? If one dollar = one second. one million dollars = 12.5 days one billion dollars = 30 years one trillion dollars = 30,000 years one quadrillion dollars = 30 million years When derivatives collapse, you will finally understand that sea level and earth temperature rises will be the least of your worries, unless a resilient high pressure block parks its ass over the mid-west this summer. Because if it does, world starvation will begin. Don't forget that the U.S. government sold off its grain reserves in the last recession.
Admittedly this comes from /collapse, so I feel almost mean picking on this (the other post I made was criticizing Bloomberg News for misusing the figure we're going to talk about). Also apparently agriculture will collapse in 50 years. But I wanted to talk with you about derivatives, because I worked with them for 6 years and I find them endlessly fascinating.
The Biggest Number You'll Ever Hear
One thing that is true about this (and perhaps the only thing) is that the notional value of the world's derivatives is probably the single largest money value you can meaningfully talk about in finance and economics. The world's total debt, for perspective, is about $200 trillion, or 2.86 times global GDP.
If you google "derivatives quadrillion" you will get a lot of posts from people sharing our friend's view with varying degrees of breathless panic that the sheer size of this number will bring down the global economy. (Saying that it will end civilization, though, is new to me.) This quadrillion figure purports to be the notional value of the world's derivatives, and our friend is kind enough to cite the BIS, the Bank for International Settlements. The BIS is an international financial institution predating the IMF and World Bank sometimes called a "Central Bank's Bank" because it, well, settles international finances. If you've heard of the Basel Agreements (such as Basel III), which are at the core of international financial regulation, the reason they're called "Basel" is because the BIS lives in Basel, Switzerland.
Anyway, one thing the BIS does is count up all those derivatives. You can see the BIS data here. Indeed, you will see an eye-wateringly large number there: $552 trillion notional value for the world's derivatives (again, compare that with $200 trillion in global debt). That is down from $710 trillion in 2013 but a far cry from one quadrillion dollars.
That $552 trillion figure refers to OTC (over the counter) derivatives. There is another variety of derivatives - "listed" or "exchange-traded" derivatives. The BIS calculates an additional $63 trillion open interest in listed derivatives. Open interest is a comparable figure to notional value for listed derivatives.
If you don't know what OTC and listed derivatives are, don't worry, the difference is an important part of our story that we'll get to.
The BIS excludes certain types of popular listed derivatives from this total for some reason, including the kind of derivative that most people have heard of: stock options. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) provides reports on US derivatives exposure: out of $181 trillion in notional value US derivatives, $3.4 trillion are stock and commodity derivatives, so we aren't missing much.
I've Got a Notion Of A Notional
So what is notional value and why is it coming to kill you?
Financial derivatives are about being derived from something. The something is called the underlying of the derivative. Roughly, the value of that underlying is the notional value.
There are many fancy variations of derivatives, but there are three basic kinds: forwards, options, and swaps. The simplest one is a forward contract, which is just an agreement to buy something at a certain price at some point in the future. I'll give the same example I gave a few weeks ago:
Say we have a forward contract for one barrel of oil. This agreement says you will buy a barrel of oil for $30 from me in three months. The notional value of this contract is $30. If oil ends up costing $31 when the contract is due, you are able to pay $30 for something worth $31. The value of the contract then is...not $30 (the notional value), not $31 (the spot price), but...$1.
At the time the contract expires and you have to pay for the oil, this contract is just a coupon for $1 off on a barrel of oil. You're still obligated to pay $30 for the oil, but the derivative itself is only worth that $1 coupon.
If you had wanted just the option (not the obligation) to pay, you could have bought...an option. I won't get into options because this is already really long although options are way more fun.
I Just Wanna Sit Back And Unwind (My Forward Contract)
You might say, "Well, Sporz, fine - the contract itself is worth $1, but I'm still obligated to pay up $30 (notional value) for the oil. So it's still relevant?"
Yeah, and if you actually do hold it to maturity, you have to accept delivery of that barrel of oil and pay. But there is a way to get out of it and just pocket your $1 without actually getting a barrel of oil: Sell the contract. In fact, sell it back to the person who's giving you the oil for that $1 that it's worth (who will just rip it up, what's the point of delivering oil to himself?) Now there's no $30, just that $1 that changed hands - and nothing to do with the notional value!
"Sporz, that's insane!"
It is a little convoluted but it works. It works so well that the vast majority of contracts are unwound this way.
You may be wondering why you would bother doing this if you didn't actually want to buy or sell oil. One answer is that you could be just speculating on the price. The other is if, say, you're an airline that wants oil, or an oil producer selling oil - you get the ability to fix the price ahead of time rather than worrying that, when you need oil the price will be sky high or rock bottom. This reduces your risk substantially. A lot more oil producers would be bankrupt now if it weren't for these handy little hedges. This is why derivatives are so important and valuable and how they can make the world safer.
"But I still need oil!"
Yes, but not oil in Cushing, Oklahoma.
Back To The Future (Contract)
"Why are we in Oklahoma, Sporz?"
So, a forward contract like the one we made is an over-the-counter (OTC) derivative. OTC derivatives are nifty because you and I get together, decide on a custom price, and a custom location for delivery. The problem is that this is expensive (we're hammering out a very custom contract and I am a very expensive banker), you're dependent on me still being in business when the contract is due (I may be very expensive, but I also could be very incompetent), and if you want to get out of it, either I'm feeling nice, or you have to find someone else to take this very special contract and that can be hard. People still do this sometimes (Pemex, the Mexican national oil company, hedges using OTC oil derivatives) but you can see some problems.
Futures contracts are closely related to forward contracts. The difference is that they are listed derivatives - instead of calling me up and hammering out this very custom contract, you go to a big exchange, like the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) and buy the contract there.
The contract is completely standardized: the oil (West Texas Intermediate) gets delivered on specific dates, and at a specific place (Cushing, Oklahoma).
"But I want oil in Ohio."
The price of oil in Ohio is going to be pretty close to what it is in Oklahoma. (The difference is called basis risk). But close enough. So you close out your NYMEX contract and pocket your $1 and pay about $31 in Ohio for oil. Net, you still managed to pay $30.
The benefit is: Because the contract is standard, many people want to buy and sell them, so you shouldn't have a hard time getting out if you want. Also, you aren't contracted with me specifically. If you want to buy, and I want to sell, the exchange will contract with us both. Your counterparty isn't me, the incompetent banker who might disappear tomorrow, but with the entire pool of buyers and sellers at the exchange.
The other thing is margining and daily settlement. Obviously the exchange doesn't want to pick up the tab for me being a deadbeat if I can't pay in three months for that $31 barrel of oil. So I have to keep some amount of cash in a margin account at the exchange to cover me. Each day, the contract is settled as if I had closed it - if the price went up, I have money taken out of my account. If the price went down, money gets put in from yours. If I don't have enough money in my account, I face a margin call. (Awesome movie by the way, you should see it - ironically there is no margin call in it). If I don't make the margin call and top up the account, my position is closed immediately for being naughty.
"What does this have to do with notional values?"
It doesn't. It has to do with making derivatives safer (almost to the point of paranoia at times). So derivatives won't blow the world economy up like our friend thinks they might.
So, how big is it? Really?
So we've talked about the benefits of derivatives (being able to hedge risk), things that can make derivatives less risky (margining, daily settlement, and central clearing - we'll come back to those). And that notional value is not a good way to measure the size or risk of derivatives. So what is a good measure?
One way to think about it is, if we see that notional value can vastly overstate the size of a derivative (our $30 notional, $1 value forward contract again), we can think about the market value. Our forward contract has a market value of just $1.
It's also worth noting that notional value could (in rare cases) be less than the market value. If oil had risen to $90, the contract would be worth $60 - on a $30 notional. But this is rare and (for reasons I'll get to) statistically impossible for derivatives as a whole.
If we go back to our favorite BIS report you'll see a figure for "Gross Market Value" which is just $15 trillion rather than the $552 trillion for OTC derivatives. That's a huge difference, I don't have to tell you - $15 trillion is a big number but not nearly as mind-boggling as half a quadrillion. This is essentially the difference between the $1 and $30 values for our forward contract.
But it gets better. Let's look at our favorite OCC report, the one that talks about American derivatives.
We start with that $180 trillion notional, and there's a "Gross Positive Fair Value" (this is like "Gross Market Value") of $4 trillion. So, great the US's derivatives are a lot smaller than notional would suggest too.
But let's imagine that you're a bank now and you have lots of deals. Lots of these deals offset each other, though - one derivative I have with you might be worth $1M, the other might be worth -$500,000. If you or I go bust, it isn't $1.5M down the drain - just the difference, $500,000. This difference is net current credit exposure (NCCE).
That NCCE is just $500 billion for the US. So out of that $4 trillion worth of derivatives out there, there's enough offsetting going on that there's only $500 billion on the hook.
NCCE can change dramatically (It went up to $800 billion during the crisis) but it's pivotal to estimating the magnitude of derivatives as a potential economic risk.
You just make me wanna SWAP!
"So, Sporz, I was reading your favorite BIS report and I noticed you haven't talked the biggest part - $434 trillion in interest rate contracts. WHAT ARE YOU HIDING!?"
Calm down! I'm getting there!
The fun thing about derivatives is that they mix and match. You want a forward contract buying Euros intead of oil? You got it. An option on a commodity? Sure. An option on a future on a basket of options on a basket of stocks? Go nuts.
As you may know, interest rates are kind of important in finance. Like the oil price, interest rates move, and like people sometimes want to bet on the oil price or lock in a price that they find preferable to tons of risk, people want to do this with interest rates. A lot.
By any measure, interest rate derivatives are more popular than any other category of derivative. More popular than the rest of them combined, even.
So it's worth talking about them.
The characteristic feature of a swap is paying repeatedly for something. Our forward contract just had us pay once; a swap on oil would have me paying each month for a barrel of oil for say $30. (Like the forward contract, this is rare for crude oil - you'd rather buy a bunch of crude oil futures and pay those each month for that sweet, sweet Oklahoma oil).
A typical interest rate swap will have two sides - one will pay floating, the other will receive fixed. These are called the "legs" of the swap. The floating leg will pay every three months whatever the chosen interest rate is (say, 3 month LIBOR - yes, that LIBOR) The fixed leg will pay a fixed amount over the life of the swap. This is useful because if - say - you're being paid a lot of variable rates and worried they'll crash, you can trade that out for a known fixed rate and then you are safe and happy.
This is very common but swaps (like all derivatives) can get super fancy. Add in a few more legs, a collar, a call, some cross-currency risk, and now we're talkin'.
Interest rate swaps are important not just because of their enormous size, but because they are OTC. Like our original forward contract, these get sketched out between counterparties and are highly customized. In the past, these had some of the problems are forward contract had - you may find it hard to get out of this swap if you want to, and you're dependent on me, your sole counterparty, to pay up and if I don't show up then you are sad, lonely, and out of a lot of money.
Some of those things that make listed derivatives safer have been applied because of The Recent Unfortunateness to OTC swaps. There are now Swap Execution Facilities to, er, facilitate swaps. Specifically, swaps now have to be centrally cleared (kind of like the listed derivatives) which reduces dependency on a single counterparty. There are also margin requirements to make sure that the swap gets paid. This is intended to reduce the systemic danger of swaps blowing up.
So credit. Very risk.
Even if you've never thought much about interest rate swaps, you might have heard of credit default swaps.
These have a fun story. Swaps have been around in bulk since the 70s; options around the same time (thank you Black-Scholes); forwards are ancient. Modern credit default swaps were invented by a lady named Blythe Masters at JPMorgan in 1994 because they were worried that Exxon wouldn't pay a debt to them because of the Exxon Valdez disaster.
Credit default swaps (CDS) are usually described as insurance. They're called "swaps" in the name but they do not taste like swaps. The typical interest rate swap will see both sides make money at various points during the life of the swap (usually) and it will not be very much (remember - you make the difference between two different rates, which is unlikely to be very much). A CDS looks like this in that one side pays for protection ("protection buyer") and the other side sells it. The protection is on some debt some company owes (say, Exxon). As long as Exxon keeps paying its debts, the protection seller just keeps getting paid, and if everything is hunky dory, the protection buyer might never get paid back anything at all.
If things go pear-shaped, though, the protection buyer gets to cackle with glee and sell some worthless bonds for full price to the protection seller. Then the swap ends, and the protection seller is very sad.
One thing that makes this different from insurance is that I can't insure your house (unless I live there. Can I?) And I can't insure it multiple times hoping that it burns down.
"Well that's creepy."
Yep.
It's not quite as creepy as it sounds, though. For every "I hope his house burns down" there is an equal and opposite "I hope his house stays pristeen and perfect and only lightly singed." This is not academic - there are things like The Curious Case of the CDS and the Spanish Casino in which the company was made to technically default, trigger the CDS, and go on happily. It has been described as "objectively beautiful." It made The Daily Show.
No talk of CDS is complete without AIG, though. You'd think an insurer would have done better than insure the hell out of all the bad debt in the world, but that happened.
I bring this up not to bury CDS but to praise it. Derivatives are tools. They can be used for good and ill. The key is to make them good rather than throw out a potentially valuable tool.
The main challenge with CDS is that (unlike normal swaps) they have the potentially to blow up in a big way. For years you make a few pennies a month selling protection then one day you discover you've been protecting Lehman and then you are sad in a big way.
Since 2008 CDS was changed to be more standardized (helping you get out of one if you're in trouble). They now have to have fixed coupons (and, making them even less like normal swaps, there is an upfront payment to compensate) making them similar to one another. They also have margining and central clearing now. The goal here being entirely "Let's not let these derivative blow the world up, shall we?"
Oh, and Blythe Masters (inventopopularizer of CDS) went on after inventing these things to prank the California energy market and is doing stuff with bitcoin now. Bon voyage.
So long, and thanks for all the derivatives
So this is incredibly long but I've had my thoughts on derivative percolating for a while and I wanted to illuminate some of it. So we covered how notional value vastly overstates the economic relevance of derivatives; we illustrated it with a forward contract; talked about how certain innovations in the listed market make derivatives less fragile; and discussed how those innovations have been applied to certain interest and credit derivatives since The Great Unfortunateness.
I do want an excuse to talk about mortgage backed securities and stuff because those are fun too.
"Wait, you owe me a barrel of oil!"
Dammit.
