He doesn't fly. He has no ability to fly. He just falls elegantly.

Re: 0947: “Investing”

That's why you invest 10,000 to start. Not 1,000. The more you invest the more you get for free.

You can simultaneously "make more money" like the comic states and invest. The invested money literally does nothing but give you more money. To not invest is to be retarded!
