Annoyed with some people loudly doubting that I understand stocks, because I do not currently want to own them myself (because venture capitalism and FOREX options have better returns on investment over my <10 year timeframes and relatively small personal funds due to my charity work), I entered the Børsens Aktiespil; the most prestigious stock trading contest in Denmark – and placed myself in the top 0.3% among 50,000+ contestants, with less than one hour spent, by predicting the soon-to-be rise of the Tesla Motors stock and gaining a 128% ROI in less than one month. But it was just an academic flex; I will not do day-trading because of the risks involved due to the total market volatility that can ruin even the best of predictions for years: Stocks should in my opinion be mainly used as 10+ year investments diversified for guarantied 10-15% p.a. returns in the long run, no more and no less.
TED talk about decision science, the limits of human understanding of risk and the consequences, with a silly attempt at poking fun at the Game of Thrones craze: “You know nothing, average human!”
Loved this ‘review’: “THE GUY IN THE ABOVE ARTICLE DESERVES THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR ETHICAL USE OF SARCASM, REALLY BRILLIANT WAY TO HIGHLIGHT HOW COLLECTIVELY STUPID WE ARE.”

Take my leave as chairman for 204 homes in Alderstroest, after 4 years, when I move from Copenhagen to Roskilde.
01AI is bankrupted by Kammeradvokaten (a private lawyer most of the time acting on behalf of the Danish state), in case similar to Peer Kølendorf’s (which took 9 years to rectify) and earning them millions. There are sadly many similar examples of this happening in Denmark, but having no chance to win in court I have instead restarted what I could and now protects my companies much better against such attacks. Documentation about Kammeradvokaten available by clicking the headline.

I was part of founding and funding the Alternative political party, lending them both cash, people and one of our Teslas (rare in Denmark back then). Later found the choice of party leadership to be a mistake, and national politics in general to be too messy and ineffective for me to ever engage in it again.

AFUTURE EV is bankrupted by ferry fire damage claim, which our insurance denied to cover due to the ferry’s deck being claimed as ‘international water’ by them, counter to the ferry company’s own claim, putting us in the weird position of helping the ferry’s insurer make its counter-claim to help the ferry company. We fought for it until years later, when even the ferry’s insurer asked us to call it quits so they could just cover it and write off the loss. I have later been invited to do work for the ferry company.
Oslo Boat ferry fire, by unknown component failure in one of our EV200. We worked with the authorities for 1.5 years to get to the bottom of the case, but despite all efforts could come no further than unknown origination in the rear battery compartment – exactly the same component set later completed the Electric World Tour around the globe, from extreme heat to cold, weeks across the ocean in a container and even through rivers, without incidents.
‘Green’ is put into the ocean transport container from Shanghai.
