Nothing like drawing conclusions from massive amounts of data. Or six data points.

Those minimum wage hikes in the bay area don't start today and the are set to rise over the next few years.
And they really don't amount to much when viewed from the google/fb/gopro/twitter/etc commute van.

It is the "The Champagne of Beers".
Sorry to detract from the race baiting, climate changy stuff.

Could you imagine an alcohol company trying to name something "High Life" today?

We're measuring beer by weight now?

"When do they report?"

Oh, not until a few weeks. I was riffing on Eric's "Today is the day" meme, from long ago.

10 MILLION NET! And I'm gonna spend it all on gluten and levering!


Speaking of glamor stocks,

TSLA and GPRO beg to differ. Maybe tomorrow is their day!

So belmont is a member for 7 hours and is deriding Rajesh?
I thought KP was a condescending blowhard...

people are anthropomorphizing a humanoid robot? hcn.

It's a crazy world.

GPRO market cap $6.5B?
TSLA market cap $34B?

Did I miss some kind of reality distortion event? Am I not drinking the right fluids?

Not yet.
If we see -300 on Friday, Monday might be THE DAY.

I've been hearing about the day for so long I don't remember what it is supposed to be!

close off the lows? Green shoots?

Follow up question: what would a (dow inflation?) adjusted slum dog be?

when was the last double slum dog day?

anyone still short TWTR? ouch.

Just popped in to see what's happening and I see:
Nemo being nemo, Mary being confusing and Yogi calling BS.

So, pretty much nothing?

my left arm is tingling. is that good?

Robj, I'll never forget flipping part that channel when they were showing a torture scene from Alias.
Disney never surprises me any more. The almighty dollar!

How much if any of the uptick in participation is due to people being bumped off the back of the UE assistance train? Didn't a lot of states recently reduce the number of weeks?

watching 'archer' because my sister says it's funny. Beet rations joke!

I think my next handle will be 'regert hohing'!


I don't know if this beats 'REGRET HOHING' but it's close: no regerts - Google Search


or stablers and raiders. [sky daddy, i'm old!]

group w? thank sky daddy, it's not a work day, I can use urban dictionary:

Urban Dictionary: Group W Bench


disenfranchising voters

It's not like that's a rare occurrence...

was it vtv or vonbeck last night (apologies) referencing keith green? That still brings back memories (some of them still fondly) even though I'm strongly agnostic these days. Life was simple back then...

robj, thanks for the decemberists.

Now about voting ids...

rd:> The most fabulous object in the world!

It's a tarp, er, trap! I voted for neither.

albrt: > which I probably know more about than the former CIO of Target, but it doesn't seem to me to count as a thing.

Right. She got a few years of exec pay. What did you get? (Course you might be more employable now...)

Guard: Don't fight it son. Confess quickly! If you hold out too long you could jeopardize your credit rating.

damn. the american python had some fine stuff.

Reno: Emilio Lizardo is a top scientist, dummkopf.
Perfect Tommy: So was Mr. Wizard.

If you read this in a rd vs kp voice it's funny. damn funny.

Navin R. Johnson: Nothing? Are you kidding? Page 73 - Johnson, Navin R.! I'm somebody now! Millions of people look at this book everyday! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity - your name in print - that makes people. I'm in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.

Sigh. I'm going to have to explain to my 9 year old what a phone book is!

Leon: Let me tell you about my mother.

burnside, I had a colleague that had an entire CD of Donna Summer's I Feel Love remixes. I fondly looked for that today for some reason. Some kind of spring thing. Nothing better than pulling the headphones on at work and attacking null pointer exceptions to that stuff!

I'm going to pretend like my friends used to when creating dnd characters. They suddenly rolled 18+ on almost every attribute.

Hey look, a wiki on blade runner. Glasses

Leeroy Jenkins!

BG, you're erudite or lucky. Marlin Perkins? And Jim?

rob, lucinda williams is rocking my world tonight. She in your sphere? Too popular?

OK. So I'm no robj, leaving regional (or for all I know, popular) music links. Nor am I as literary as he. And lest you think I'm damning with praise, faint or not, I'm not.

duke, don't denigrate my pedestrian tastes.

Fidgit: Oh, so that's what an invisible barrier looks like.

Navin R. Johnson: Huh? I am not a bum. I'm a jerk. I once had wealth, power, and the love of a beautiful woman. Now I only have two things: my friends, and... uh... my thermos.

'random article' link on the left side. But in hind-sight I don't recommend it. If you're like me, you'll end up an anti-KP.
An existential crisis of un-knowing anything.

Apparently there are roads, footballers, moths, old battles, sports stars and bacteria that I've never imagined.

What do I really know?

CR likes RE? Sebastian is tapping drugs I need? Duke also? RiF and others make me laugh?

After I've killed the thread, here's a new late night game: go to wikipedia and click on the 'random article' link. See if you ever find an article you know anything about.

Apparently, footballers are popular.

I'm up to about 40 clicks. 0 for 40. Damn, I feel stupid. No Samuel Johnson here.

Why don't we ask KP where the plane is? She knows everything and will be condescending when she informs us.

We're a slumdog down.
The major indices are strange looking today. Like a high frequency signal on a general down slope.
