    How he describes options as a means to an end is great. It's an insight I came to, that option markets indeed allow you to "capture the distribution of returns you're aiming for." Couldn't of said it better.

    Excellent thank you for this. I would pay real money to see (..oh wait..) the 2020 version of these two brilliant minds watch this video of their 2017 selves and comment like a directors cut narration of how did the thesis evolve what they got correct what they missed and why and what did they learn and how will the apply this going forward thank you and my respects!
