Good news for me today, (although I still have a terminal problem my little white knights are doing me proud).
I got the all clear from my latest med tests, bloods normal, white cell count very high (which is good news as it shows that my immune system is fighting the latest infection, this was a big concern).
Pooh results, no C dif!
Just a nasty bug that I've... read more...|

|yesterday 10:28||dysonhooverman||I seem to remember that the death of most Empires comes from maintaining their milliraty bases abroad. Easily understood really though- the whole idea that the barbarians don't go as quietly as planned in the end.
The US do pull out allthe stops right now though: economic and psychological warefare, propaganda- it's quite interesting how this is never framed as warfare other than when it is... read more...|

I would imagine being in power for, what, a couple of weeks? before the end of the bailout deal, that they didn't have time to put together a plan. Maybe they have given in and are no better than the ones before, or they now have four months to hash out a new deal or leave the euro. They keep telling us, though, that the Greeks don't want to leave the euro. I expect more... read more...|
worry not about Pensions.
Prompted by ZIRP and NIRP they sought safe alternative investments such as high cost energy investments.
$5 Trillion invested since 2008 on the assumption oil would stay above $75 a barrel.
As a reminder the size of the sub-prime market was $1.3 Trillion read more...|
The troika, ECB + Euro Comis + IMF, were so successful at reducing the Greek position between the election and the re-negotiation, that all Varoufakis' cards were known to be non-suited 2's and 3's.
The ECB withdrew support from the banks exactly when they had to. They knew that any Greek Bank Solvency issue would test the limits of any strategy that Varoufakis may have held - I... read more...|

The dastardardly crime i am refering to is the pushing of a black man off a train. Wow......not hacked to peices but pushed off a train. Lets set up an incident room and get the man hunt underway. I reccomend Inspector Clouseau Supasapi to head up this task force.
Didn't take em long to find a pic of... read more...|

"the problem with ALL governments is its always the wrong people in power"
You are right about that but I disagree over the money issue. That is just a symptom not the cause. I have two alternative causes.
1 The promotion of psychopaths to the top. In fact even worse, intelligent psychopaths who can better hide what they are.
2 The strong tendency of people in general to... read more...|
|21 Feb 2015||abc125||A fall to $1000 is baked in the cake i'm afraid. But i don't think it will get there in one go. It will be death by a 1000 cuts lol. I reckon it will stair step down: $1100, $1050, $1000 and maybe even $950 with a possible spike low down to the 1980 gold high of $875.
