Aerial View Of Phoenix Disappearing Under A 5,000 Foot Dust Storm

Tyler Durden's picture

While without much direct implication for ponzi market navigation strategy and tactics, the attached videos of Phoenix disappearing under a 5,000 foot tall dust storm, which at time was as tall as 10,000 feet, is stunning in its own right. As the Huffington Post reports "the massive dust cloud, also known as a "haboob," was around 5,000 feet when it arrived in Phoenix,
but radar data reveals that it reached heights anywhere from 8,000 to
10,000 feet high prior. The storm appeared to be around 50 miles wide
in some areas, KSAZ-TV reported. The dust storm originated in Tucson,
and was a part of Arizona's monsoon season. According to CNN, the dust storm prompted the Federal Aviation Administration to issue a ground stop on flights at Phoenix's Sky Harbor Airport
for about an hour and 15 minutes. At it's peak, the storm left 10,000
customers without power, Jenna Shaver of the Arizona Public Service told

everything is biblical.

I know a guy who knows a guy who has a friend who's great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great grandfathers WIFE ACTUALLY BIT ON A APPLE on which she was not allowed to bite AND according to the pope, IS THE RESPONSIBLE off THIS financial crisis.


No kidding.

Back than, they already had a lot of shit because of it and they also started to FLOOD THE MARKETS WITH LIQUIDITY!

After a while, the shit turned so bad and nobody was really prepared besides 1 guy who actually accumelated himself a "lifeboat" to stay afloat on all that shit and after that first shitstorm, it turned out he was the only one who survived it.


Now the shit doesn't end there!

Because to solve that crisis back then, they all put that shit on the books by flipping stuff AND IT'S THAT SHIT THAT NOWS COMES BACK TO US!


So how to solve it you ask and what to learn from this lesson?



3. You may also hold some paper, because whipping your ass with only your hands isn't that cool when you're eating pizza or chicken after it!

I can't tell whether you're junking Christianity or not..... :/

Doesn't matter... Do what I do....

<JUNK> Sudden D anyway...

He's into S&M and humiliation... He'll get so much pleasure out of the pain...

I also like to give bible lessons to hot young chicks.

My favorite part is giving communion to them!

Why is there a media blackout about the radioactivity of this cloud?

I wonder if his real name just so happens to be Dominique Strauss-Kahn? ;)

He is Chris Cox. (Sorry. I had to say it after your SEC joke.)

That's just what I said to you girlfriend!

She's comming over this afternoon to nurse me ;)

I just love roleplay...

cpnscarlet's picture

I can dig the nursing, but please don't take the Lord's name in vain. Please?

Sudden Debt's picture

In what way did I take the Lord's name in vain?

I just talked about a event that happend about 6000 years ago.

sd stick another needle in your arm and just go ahead and die. the worms are hungry for fecal matter such as you.

The Profit Prophet's picture

He didn't actually take the Lord's name in vain....he engaged in blasphemy by using an innuendo to compare the sacred host to his penis!

You have taken this site to a new low Sudden Debt!!! I can only hope that you show the same level of disrespect to Islam in the presence of a devout Muslim so that he can show you the type of divine justice these sorts of comments warrant.....but you are likely just an anonymous coward!

Is it too much to ask to be able to participate in this "economic blog" without reading blasphemous comments against Christianity!!!!!

Sudden are a piece of shit!

T.E.I.N. everyone! 

pazmaker's picture

you are right.. Sudden's comments were tasteless and classless.  One has to wonder what was the intent of such comments?  To shock or to dishonor? To show his contempt for Catholicism?


The comments would be just as distasteful if they were about Buddha or Mohhamed or any other human for that matter.

Overall the results are less respect for the commentator(SD), less weight given to any future comments and the fact that one wonders if he is nothing but a troll.


Sudden Debt's picture

Does your doctor know you stopped taking your magic pills?

Holly fuck man! You sound like a nutcase!

JEZUS! Just relax!

You are looking for insults where there are none, just because you like to be insulted.

You make me feel like being forced to drag firewood through the village with only 12 pitstops allowed!


Drink some water and relax! If you want wine, just give me a signal, I can fix that for you.

The Profit Prophet's picture

Listen Dick....if you're too stupid or just plain ignorant enough not to realize that words matter, then you shouldn't be posting on this site.  The ability to say something this deeply insulting and then defend it is a comment about the quality of your character.  If you didn't realize how deeply insulting your comments you know!  The proper reply from a person of intelligence and character would be an apology....not some fraternity-boy defense of your actions by insinuating I'm unstable. 

T.E.I.N. everyone! 

Sudden Debt's picture

You must be a true catholic.

You've called me names, insulted me like a drunk Irish tunnel worker, and repeatedly call for other people to go against me.

If you think you are such a catholic and devoted christian you should read your paperback again on your current acts.


But I'll forgive you!

Just tweet 10 prayers to your address book and update your personal profile 5 times and you are forgiven.


The Profit Prophet's picture

I haven't called on anyone to do anything you childish twit. People are junking you because you just revealed yourself to be an ignorant piece of shit - who isn't man enough to apologize when he's made deeply offensive statements. Trust me when I say that your cum is nothing like the sacred host - and the fact that you insist this is not an offensive statement means that you are among the lowest forms of humanity.  

I call on all reasonable and intelligent people of good conscience on ZeroHedge to henceforth junk all posts from the ignorant adolescent known as Sudden Debt (there....I just made an honest man-child of you).

P.S. Grow The Fuck Up!

What if the part of the sacred host you recently ate just happened to be jeebus' testicle?  Do you get to decide which part of the body you are eating?  Just wondering...

The Profit Prophet's picture

Apparently there are more Satanists on this site than Christians......nice avatar Goat-Boy....perhaps you should include the pentagram outline around your goat head the next time you post.  Are you and Sudden Debt members of the same coven? Just wondering...

Hilarious when someone tries to come across as witty, only to misuse "than" when it should be "then".  Idiot.

"Only than I will reply to your post which was worse then the first one".

English is his second language. Thus, to put some real bite into your comment, you need to make it in French.

I was talking about the fact that I am wondering if I should eat pizza or chicken this evening.

Wait to whip your own ass until after you eat.  It will make the conversation during the meal go much smoother.

Why would it be 'junking Christianity'? The old testament books are the Torah, which is what the Jews obviously know those people who are above everyone else and must not be criticized ever for anything?

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

What I find fantastic is that they can call you anti-semitic for criticizing a government!  WTF?  So if you hate the American Empire, I mean, Gov't then does that make you a racist?  No, obviously not.  It has nothing to do with race.

But when you criticize Israel, which has worse racial discrimination than America in the 60s (you know, when a certain MLK became famous) or even worse discrimination than South Africa during Apartheid, well, then you are a racist! 

So there are a lot of people from Jewish families claiming to be religious, that run the completely biased media, and debauch society through Hollywood, and have a large concentration in financial institutions, esp. at the top level...

You are racist for mentioning it.  Personally, I mention the so-called Jewish connection, because IMO it shows that when things get corrupt/exceptionally profitable/powerful you can only trust those closest to you.  When you look at politics, you will often find that the most successful politicians are members of secret societies.  In business, the most successful are those who are best connected, whether due to race, family, etc.

well done, well done. however, next time won't be liquidity and you won't have toilet paper. and they'll be throwing all their commodities to the moles and bats (blind things)

I counted the number of "great"s in your post: 30.  Therefore the woman who ate the apple in your case lived 30 generations ago.  Assuming an average child bearing age between 25-30, the women lived around 1111-1261AD.  She couldn't be Eve because, accoeding to Bible, Eve was created 5771 years ago and died about 4871 years ago.  There was only one woman in 12th century who could have made such a great impact: Eleanor of Aquitaine (1122-1204).  She was the wealthiest and most powerful woman during the middle age, and ancestress to almost all european royalties today.  The problem is, she had so much money (gold) that she was never interested in the meager profit of banking business

You've  got  to love it, Scarlet Fu of Bloomberg TV, Margies' side kick was yammering just before 11am about the state of the cinema in China and how they are currently not permitting foreign films until such time as a government sponsored film ("Beginning of the Great Revival" ) achieves a revenue target of something like $100m.

The government film is about the founding of the communist party in China (in celebration of its 90th anniversary).  Scarlet offers a bit of editorial comment stating that there is a lot of blood and suffering in the movie "but at least it has a happy ending, the PRC".

I wonder if anyone in Scarlet's family has spent time in a Laogai Camp (
