"What's a mere $100,000,000,000.00 between old friends? "
Only a few bitcoins? Some electrons can be re-purposed.
100B over what time frame? Isn't the fed pumping 85B a month? Small ball indeed.
Too much gluten.
Tom, I was in Ranch 99 (99 Ranch?) yesterday and saw an entire aisle of 'gluten' something. Doesn't seem to be hurting 2/3rds of the world.
But what do I know?

post shutdown bounce ...
despite the shutdown
Question for you all, re: walmart and amazon in online sales. I've been wondering if WMT would ever get its act together and compete in the online space aggressively with amzn -- especially since amzn is now paying tax in many states.
Do you guys see walmart taking some of the online sales?
Anecdotally, I've bought some things from both recently and the best price seems to go back and forth. TVs to batteries. Both provided good shipping.
The stocks are a different story...
wmt crappy earnings, kohl's crappy, macy's were good. Yep, high end trouncing the plebes.
Hate to repeat the oft used 'quintiles' question but I wonder what the effect on these graphs of people who are doing well paying down/off their mortgages? I mean, if you have cash most 'investments' aren't paying much...
Why are you picking on the disabled?
I thought libor disease was predominately a euro affair?
KP's incessant vitriol again the TP, it makes me wonder what I'm missing. An enemy of hers is a friend of mine? (shudder).
Is anything so simplistic and one sided as her brain or the TP?
getting back to normal? What's the foreclosure days average?
"2 x Slumdog"
Just a normal functioning market, nothing to see here, move along.
I need whiskey to understand the Duke and Mary. (A truer statement I've never made!)
"Net Government Saving (TGDEF) - FRED - St. Louis Fed"
That's such an optimistic title. I guess it's a keynesian thing. Someday...
Thanks guys. Since I don't have tv, I would never have known the horror of the shutdown -- or even know it happened if it wasn't for you.
The TARP vote (#2) was a bitch slap of epic proportions.
This bit of reality saddens me. Like the march up to the iraq war, my innate cynicism was blown away.
I see that the gubmint who cries wolf is crying again.
Postal Service proposes 3-cent rate hike for stamps
6.5% rise by USPS. Driving substitution? Also, gluten free!

Anything good on Steam sales this week?
Ha! I'm purposefully not looking. What with HCN and work, my eight year old wonders why we can't play multiplayer 'Age of Empires II' more than we already do.
I shorted a small about of TSLA
And, no, I didn't top-tick it. I can still dream, right?
For the first time since my 2006 homebuilder shorts, I shorted a small about of TSLA -- just to keep me interested in teh market. It's either that or start up my steam account. casino!
Slummy in the rear view mirror. How much more will we get or will we "close off the lows"?
I'm sure when you turn off the feedback loops (interest rates), everything will just work out fine.

Wow, talk about a new era of (forced) stability. Engineered economy, anyone?
Ya think Tesla shouldn't be valued at 2/7ths of Ford? They're cool after all.
With gnome gone, all I wish for is KP to shut the hell up.
Thank you to whomever linked to ylvis. I don't know if it's syria but I haven't laughed this hard in a long time.
Ylvis’ best music videos in English: “Stonehenge,” “Work It,” “Pressure,” “Jan Egeland,” and “Someone Like Me.”

How do they say "we don't know" but still get paid?
OT (but what isn't?), my brother is being sent to some uber-endocrinologist by the name of Tyrell. I hope he doesn't have to gouge the docs eyes out with his thumbs.
I just learned about twerking...
Using your iPad mini as a phone | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog
I know about the voip options. Are you really dropping your cell service or are you going to keep two devices on your person? I guess one way of slowing the nsa is to inundate them with data...
WTF do you think the iPad mini is all about?!
True, true but you can't actually make calls on it, can you? And all the people with aging eyesight are the last vestiges of people that actually make calls.
Maybe they don't want that demographic using it.
Sure, but I see a lot of the kids sporting galaxy notes. Also, who has the money?
Fingerprint reader but not a bigger screen? Don't they look at the aging demographics?

KP: You're going to kill the blog.
55% hidden messages -- that short dude must really be burning the electrons.
Speaking of aca and food stamps, a bunch of middle aged programmers at work are really interested in how it all plays out -- some of the most right wing guys are talking about retiring if the premiums are low enough. I think my brothers biggest expense is his steam account.
