    You short a house by borrowing it behind their back, selling it without telling them, waiting for it to fall in price and then secretly buy it back at at a lower price and pocket the difference.

    How hard can that be?

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    This is remarkably close to the truth of the situation.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
