Hideously Complex Pleasures

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Sock puppets. No one even suspects that John-Boy isn't real.

The really complex part is that he's DurangoPipe's sock puppet, who is in turn Goose's sock puppet. Goose got his sock puppets well-established before making his own appearance.

As hideously complex pleasures go.... I am enjoying learning how to trade stock options.
I thought that learning to trade options and futures was hideously complex.

But getting set up to trade with real money -- and convincing my wife that we are ready to do so -- adds an order of magnitude to the complexity.
