Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


Day trading, as Lenny saw it, was a straight path to a prosperous future (one filled with green bills), and he set forth sensibly, honing his technical understanding of stock trends under the tutelage of a noteworthy chartist, but after being flattened by a #52 bus one Monday morning while checking the price of GOOG on his mobile phone, he developed an irreversible living impairment and never again showed much interest in his verdant destination. (by Rudi)


Upon choking up an emotional trichobezoar over his chartist's latest predictions, the pathologist summary to us - serfs currently under his insipid tutelage - delineated his investment trends as “Jacitation followed by protracted apnea qualifying for a diagnosis of living impaired with an exigent prognosis of going to depth under the verdant extension of the local golf course;” we unanimously agreed, as always. (by docephesus)


Under the tutelage of his elders at Goldman Sachs, Entwistle had grown from a mere chartist to a full-fledged analyst, with an almost preternatural aptitude for swelling the coffers of trust-funders and keeping the government's hands off the verdant pecuniary leavings of the recently living-impaired. (by Amalia)


(continued) One year after the chartist's mysterious disappearance, his ever resourceful fiancée was living on the lush verdant estate and under the generous tutelage of one of his erstwhile investors, an ignoble mafia boss who, asked by a reporter in what country the chartist was then living, snickered meanly: 'Drew, heh Drew is living in... I believe he is living im...paired, heh, if ye know what I mean.' (by Sami)


Eager for qualified tutelage in a dead language, I followed a lead from our local mortician and had a dig around in the verdant swards of the necropolis where, in unhallowed ground, snug among the serried ranks of statisticians, chartists, quacksalvers and numerologists, I disinterred one of the living impaired, a profitless usurer who altruistically agreed, 'out of interest' as he put it, to take me on as a philological resurrectionist.
