You're supposed to do it "anonymously".

Looking back at the worst times, it always seems that they were times in which there were people who believed with absolute faith and absolute dogmatism in something. And they were so serious in this matter that they insisted that the rest of the world agree with them. And then they would do things that were directly inconsistent with their own beliefs in order to maintain that what they said was true.~ Feynman

Reminds me of Keynesians...

Magic Fairies Cause Recessions - Bloomberg View

Here’s how recessions work. Sometimes, for whatever reason, the Federal Reserve decides to raise interest rates. That’s expected to cause deflation, so companies want to lower their prices to avoid being outcompeted when all the other companies lower their prices. But here’s the problem -- some of them can’t. Because every quarter, a magical fairy taps a certain percentage of them on the shoulder and says “Sorry, you’re not allowed to change your prices this quarter.” Since they can’t drop their price, companies that get cursed by the fairy end up just producing less. Voila -- a recession!

Finally an economist that makes sense...

Sounds more like he works on exporting our industrial base to the Far East.

Oklahoma didn't beat Alabama. Only Alabama can beat Alabama (like it did when it tried a 57 yard FG)

Okay...I'm genuinely curious about record against Stoops.
Auburn was luck...Oklahoma was good coaching on the part Stoops and his staff. Of course, their players had to go out and make the plays too.

For you haters out there, here's Saban getting creamed covering a kickoff return:

What's his record versus Bob Stoops?

I reject the idea that winning percentage is the proper criterion for ranking coaches.

Winningest is most wins, not highest winning percentage. IIRC, 3 of the 4 are in the top 6 most wins, and I think that total wins can't be ignored.

Strongly related to Sanscrit. She tried to teach me once. It was an immediate flop.

Yes...I believe that Persian (Latin as well) too derives from Sanskrit, but it's my impression from the woman to whom I referred that Persian was most direct in lineage.

My bff in high school was from Lithuania. At the time she clearly thought of the Russians as invaders. As the decades went by I think the attitude softened somewhat. Poles were bad too

They still feel that way. On another note, the Lithuanian language apparently derives from Persian and is not a Slavic language as one might expect. They apparently conjugate verb and nouns and perhaps other words. It's apparently quite complex. This was related to me by a woman who is married to a man from Lithuania.

Are you sure that Yoringe is German or just lives in Germany? I'm not.

He is awfully pro-Russian, but he's told us he's German, his father or grandfather was a German paratrooper, and he lives in Spain with his GF.

Who gets to hold up the stop sign ?

It seems at the moment that Russia will take what it wants. It probably doesn't want the headaches of a complete takeover, and it probably doesn't want Chernobyl. I suspect that it does want the oil and gas fields.

I think they could only carry Sheridan light tanks. I think you need a C5-A to carry an M1 or M60 tank.

When you think about it, it's a economic miracle that there is a difference between the rates offered by the Fed and return on Treasuries.
Everyone who has access should just borrow the max and bid up Treasuries until the two rates are equal.

The great thing about your strategy is that Treasuries add to your capital base (assuming I understand this concept), so the more treasuries you buy, the more you should be able to borrow to buy more treasuries...
