So improvement! To the moon, alice!

How about all the papers written at universities behind paywalls? And the patents they produce?

Nemo, when did you close your twtr short? If not yet, what's your trigger?

damn, how long is this greek drama, I gotta pee...

robj, I need to change the spelling of lastros. For now.

Ed, re: all the charges,

Isn't that the standard DA playbook these days? Throw everything in and have them plea down to something serious.

"No turd in the punch bowl? "

Upper decker?

CR must not be planning on any bank closures.

Ed and josap, I'd argue that cars are relatively cheap compared to how fast everything else has escalated. I'm still driving a '98 and the equivalent model today is something like 10-30%more (I'm guessing).

Try that with health care, meat, or education.

poic, gonna close positive? back to one slum.

I can't remember my hcn lore. Just in case we get three slummies, is that termed a litter?

To paraphrase, the good thing about conspiracies is that there are so many to choose from. And you can always start your own!

re Communications Engineer:

1st Bob: What you do at Initech is you take the specifications from the customer and bring them down to the software engineers?
Tom: Yes, yes that's right.

2nd Bob: Well then I just have to ask why can't the customers take them directly to the software people?

Tom: Well, I'll tell you why... because... engineers are not good at dealing with customers...

1st Bob: So you physically take the specs from the customer?

Tom: Well... No. My secretary does that... or they're faxed.

2nd Bob: So then you must physically bring them to the software people?

Tom: Well... No. ah sometimes.

1st Bob: What would you say you do here?

Tom: Look I already told you, I deal with the @#$% customers so the engineers don't have to. I have people skills! I am good at dealing with people, can't you understand that? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?! *

LL: Hmmm, asking men to attempt attractiveness is apparently an insult. Who could have known?

Let me try to phrase this as jackd might:
If my online persona's attire was spelling and grammar, could I beseech ye to spend a little time on both?

burnside: Let me guess, ex IBM management?

The old east coast lawyer lady is telling us how to dress?

I generalize but when I travel to the east coast on work the attitudes are much more about how you look and what your pedigree was. On the west it's more about what you do and have done.

I for one am very happy to be living in one of the few societies where I can chose any level of attire.

KidP: this one made me laugh

“Put another way, if it’s 9 a.m., it’s very unlikely anyone’s offering to take you higher and higher,”

At least this study I can understand, as opposed to the nitrates and gmo ones.

"Want some cheat codes for Castle Wolfenstein dude? "

I can still hear the german guards "speach" coming out of the crappy apple 2 speakers. "Allspice" is what I thought they were saying when I was in my early teens.

I do like that 'comprehensive capital' phrase. 'Cause when I analyze, I ignore some of the capital.

Or is it Capital Analysis -- how are the capital letters used?

by 'steam' I meant the valve game site -- a bigger waste of time than here!

and now I have granite countertops and a computer with Steam and CR access!

Re: It's complicated...

lightning rod source aside, articles like these remind me of the house I live in. Built in the '50, no insulation, no central heat, no AC, tiny rooms, tiny and few closets, one bath, no shower, no clothes dryer, washer in the kitchen...

It is complicated. Some things are definitely better.

On the other hand, you don't have to look any further than median wages to executive pay to see growing disparity.

1.4% is a pounding?

Is this the right one?

sum, thanks for the link. I'll cogitate and, as usual, probably do nothing.

"But in any case, in general how does a 3.7% probability of default correlate with stock etf performance? Mostly currency risk? "

In other words, if you guys think the US$ is getting pricy, what would be an easy way to play that? Basket of foreign ETFs?

sum: "Brazil is 5th one from the top: Emerging Markets / Country Risk"

By alphabet? By CDS spread looks to be bigger.

But in any case, in general how does a 3.7% probability of default correlate with stock etf performance? Mostly currency risk?

Poic, got your stillsuit? Might be a bit uncomfortable on the mountain bike but helps with road-rash.

Looks like MOFO KP'd the top of the thread!!

"No,...should it? "
