Don't stare at the balls.

or you will miss the gorilla,

I counted correctly but completely missed the gorilla.

Analogous to how I became fully invested literally a few days before this market sinkhole 1st appeared.

Remaining calm, even though the curtain has changed color & there's a gorilla eating my lunch.
This animal can't take my home away from me because I'm debt free.

Is it Fairfax? Given that you asked a so similar question in a Fairfax related thread?

Why ask the question if you're unwilling to provide information to answer it?

I will once I exist my position.  I will show you the statement as well.

I want to know if anyone in history that you know would go short on one position only...

Is the company you're shorting characterized by the following:
Last December, the CEO (and other executives) was selling shares in part to fund a marital dissolution and since then the share price is down 50%?
"I will once I exist my position." Was the bolded part a Freudian slip?
