Well, we gotta stop doing stupid things.

I love that this is on a thread titled: Yellen: Expect Rate Hike in 2015, Several Years before Fed Funds Rate "back to normal" level

All items less shelter: -1.6%! -- The deflationary Dooooooooooooooom!!! is here.

Speaking of which, I will be hiking around Ranier soon. I assume they will have Brooks along the hike.

I'm a 50/50 man between raniers & brooks, because I just can't decide.

Facepalm Double that here. Some of the farmer stands tried $10/lb, but even the santa monicans stayed away from them.

Edit: Wait, maybe not that bad. They have these large containers with fixed size, I just assumed that was a pound.

Been gorging on them down here. Om-nom-nom-nom But boy, Cash, and no, I dont need a receipt Cash, and no, I dont need a receipt Cash, and no, I dont need a receipt

Just what I'd expect someone to say who is planning to rule the world via Wiv a Little Bit of Luck

Oh nice. I don't need to bother with Osama's reading list, I can get all the crazy I want right here on HCN.

Hilariously, the Illuminati book is a pdf on the web.

From a quick skim: All of the creativity points for the crazy Tinfoil Hat of Illuminati who rule the world appear to be lost by the anti-Semitic crazy. Not very creative; I was hoping for better.

I've never really understood the special connection between low-IQ and anti-Semitism. I suppose I should just shut up and be grateful that so many great people escaped anti-Semitism by coming to the US.

I haven't read a non-science or non-engineering book in so long it's embarrassing. So I'll keep Osama's reading list around for when I'm craving decent fiction.

I've read none of them. [looks both ways] but “Bloodlines of the Illuminati” by Fritz Springmeier looks kind of interesting.

Yes, it goes through +infinity then through -infinity, then to negative T. It's the trouble with working with T and not 1/T.

More to the point, neg abs temp never really found a use. For a while, people applied it in laser systems (inversion is an example of negative abs temp), making it an intellectual curiousity that doesn't really shed light on the situation. Kind of like a lot of posts here.

Whoops, T_{Heaven} > T_{Hell} was proven in 1972.
Applied Optics [11(8) A14 (1972), August

I should add that the way you achieve negative absolute temperature is by going through +infinity, kinda like SoCal pricing.

RiF sez:

is that the view from Hell?

consistent with +infinity temperature.

Edit: Although it was conclusively proven that heaven is hotter than hell (in the 50s, I think)

[ and in case negative absolute temp is foreign ]

You have a system with negative abs temp when you add energy and the entropy decreases.

I prefer negative absolute temperature, just to shake things up.

Here's how much money you should save based on your income - Yahoo Finance

Except for the richest, households in every other income quintile lack the liquid assets needed to cover just one month's worth of swings in earnings or spending, according to data from the bank and the Survey of Consumer Finances.

It's almost as if there's some weird tradeoff between having money in the bank and being one of those levered-up bitchez.
