D.R Unfiltered: The Market Isn’t the Only Thing Trying to Break Records…

This week, I will be out of town volunteering at a youth summer camp sponsored by my church. So today, while I’m outside of decent cell and internet range and am unable to check the markets, I want to bring you a classic “D.R. Unfiltered” video as a precursor for my upcoming trip to Scotland.

Some of my longer-tenured readers might remember this video from last year, which shows me competing in the haggis throwing competition during the Highland Games in the small village of Aberlour, Scotland.

These games date back over 1000 years and have many facets including bagpipe and drum corps competitions, and multiple dancing events. And yes, there are footraces and long jumps where men and women run and jump to the screaming encouragement of the local spectators.

But the great allure of the games lies in the strength events where huge men in kilts throw heavy stones and hammers and even toss massive logs. The event I chose to take place in was the haggis throw.

Haggis, the national dish of Scotland, is a type of pudding composed of the liver, heart, and lungs of a sheep (or other animal), minced and mixed with beef or mutton suet and oatmeal and seasoned with onion, cayenne pepper, and other spices. The mixture is packed into a sheep’s stomach and boiled (for purposes of the throwing competition, the haggis is frozen, not piping hot).

The current world record for haggis hurling stands at an astonishing 217 feet. I did not break that record, but I will be returning to Scotland next week to attempt to beat my own record, much like the market has been attempting to these last few weeks.

I’ll be back later this week with an in-depth market update for you, but for now, click below to watch my first-ever haggis throw


This Hit TV Show Reveals a Hidden Truth about the Market

During these “dog days” of summer, while many of us are hiding indoors trying to beat the heat, film and TV producers offer a trove of blockbusters to keep us entertained. One of my favorites thus far this summer has been the third season of Netflix’s hit series, Stranger Things.

As I watched, I couldn’t help but see a connection between the show and the way the market is behaving recently…

If you’re unfamiliar with the series (I will try my best to avoid any real spoilers here), the basic premise is a group of plucky pre-teens struggling against evil creatures from an alternate dimension in 1980s Indiana.

That alternate dimension, known as The Upside Down, is in many ways parallel to our own dimension, with some very stark differences. While all of the buildings, roads, plants, etc. in our world are mirrored, everything that exists in The Upside Down has a dark, creepy, and obscured look to it.

And as the camera often illustrates, The Upside Down is just that – a version of our world turned on its head.

When we take a good look at the way that the market is behaving this summer, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch believe that we’ve found ourselves in The Upside Down
