Old joke for vintage car buffs:

Q: Why do Brits drink warm beer?

A: Because Lucas makes refrigerators.

Not really, it would actually be like buying the New York Yankees. Only their athletes don't take performance enhancing cocktails.

The world is actually better than many alternative options we could have been led to. Dissecting it will always find complaints. When has the world ever been fair and balanced?

Rugby league has the worst doping problem in Britain, with more of its performers testing positive for banned anabolic steroids than any other sport in the country.

Figures released yesterday by UK Sport, the body responsible for drug testing in Britain, revealed that 18 leading players produced adverse findings for banned substances during the period April 2001 to March 2002.

That included 10 for anabolic agents, nearly half of the 26 cases among the 40 sports in which UK Sport conducts testing. During the same period the previous year only two rugby league players had tested positive for steroids.

anabolic steroids than any other sport.

me think, cycling. unless you restrict just to UK.

cycling now requires a biological passport to be carried by athletes 24/7.

any variations, GONE†

 Hugh Hendry dismantling Jim O'Neill and the other China bulls. "I love Jim O'Neill. I love that Goldman Sachs guy. He says you either get it, or you don't. I don't get it. In the future there will be a Confucius saying: the wise man not invest in overcapacity. The flaw of the business model, at the center of it is a craving for power as opposed to profit."

Way too late to be worried about being branded non-objective pessimists.  LOL.

Well if Tyler(s) owns physical gold then it's optimism - why buy PMs if we are all going to end up dead?

If you have something to trade you will have fewer "problems" on the flip side:'

Oh god, I am in panic  ! The nytimes is going to start charging for the online content beginning January of next year ! 

How will I survive without their insight, investigative reporting, incorruptible journalism.

The capitalist in me is telling me buy nytimes shares because with the wave of subscribers they are going UP UP UP !

Stopped reading the times when they said the oil spike that drove prices up to $100 was purely due to fundamentals and nothing to do with speculation.

I still read it online to stay abreast of what the propagandists are up to. Once they start charging I'll have to watch CBS Evening News for my daily propaganda fix, I guess.
