Why is it "cool" to regurgitate a random byte from the article and punctuate it with the (misspelled) word for a female dog?

I mean it. I really don't get it. Why is something like this present for EVERY ZH article?

Do these people really not have anything intelligent to add? How do they keep getting the CAPTCHA problem right?

“That’s the tight rope that the Federal Reserve will be walking next week,” he said. “If QE simply ends, that’s a change in policy, that’s going to make many markets roll over and they are going to avoid that. Anything short of QE3 is going to be called higher interest rates.”

QE3 and then QE4 by the end of this year.

Why do you care so much? It's pretty easy to skip over a short comment.

If you really wanna know, IMHO it's a bit of harmless sophmoric humor that provides a little catharsis in a frustrating world and is a minor tradition that binds a community together.

I wasn't around for the very beginning, but think it started with Chumbawamba saying "gold bitchez" in response to some articles, which represented his investment advice and vote of no-confidence in the system - which turned out to be rather foresightful.

But feel free to be a sourpuss about it.

please forgive the off topic question...

do open interest numbers from the comex just represent the amount of short contracts purchased that day?

thank you

I'd have to see exactly what number you were referring to, but typically Open Interest represents the number of outstanding contracts at a particular point in time. For every short position, there must be a corresponding long position, so the number represents either the number of short contracts or the number of longs (since they are equal). In that sense, futures are a zero sum game - for every winner there is a loser. 

Open interest numbers sometimes are listed with a net change for the day, which shows how many contracts were opened or closed that day.

Why I care is immaterial.

Sophomoric has three "o's."

Catharsis may be realized in other ways that actually express an idea, e.g. the video clip Tyler posted yesterday of the 2-minute rant about the Barry Dunham administration's mismanagement of the economy. Contrast with "__(insert sound byte)__ bitchez!"

Putting up a Christmas Tree with lights on it in December is "tradition." Shooting fireworks on the 4th of July is "tradition." Typing a stupid repetitive comment on a weblog is not "tradition." Words have meanings, folks. While you're at it, look up the word, "community."

By resorting to ad hominem, e.g. "sourpuss," and "biggest dick of the day (see below)," y'all are demonstrating that you know there is no legitimate objection to what I typed above. And as a side-note, indulging in obscenity for its own sake is what conditions Americans (Brits too) into obnoxious Jerks who think it's OK to tour the Sistene Chapel wearing an untucked message T-shirt, baggy cargo shorts, and a pair of flip-flops.

There's too much irony in your statement to bother responding directly, beyond saying it must be nice up there on your 'high horse'. 

To most all of my fellow ZH'ers - thank you for the education, the sanity in an insane world, my new found appreciation for physical precious metals (real money with no counter-parties and no debt), my greater sense of calm as my preparations proceed, etc.

To those I say:

Thank you, Bitchez.

Well good. When things won't humble themselves they have to be humiliated.

Like how you legitimized one tradition and illegitimized another tradition.

This is called CULTivation of CULTure. And the reason why conspirers charge everybody with conspiracy and cult leaders acuse everybody of being cultists. And why mainstream media is simply the biggest most conforming cult that outpowers other smaller cults through parroting and ego extension.

The reason putting up christmas lights is "legitimate" is because it replaced an established cult with a new cult that overtook the old cults calendar planner. Easter is simply a cult overtaking the previous maypole cult who overtook the previous planting cycle cult. The maypole cult would wrap several ribbons around a pole and it was a kind o of a symbolic representation of dna, It was replaced with a staff and a couple of snakes. Like the old cult was stupid and didn't get something and the new cult added some new information to the belief that was superior.

The sistine chapel thing you mention is simply the cult leaders trying to make some intangible asset such as genious or something out of someone or some group of artists. It's a collective thing they do in order to make the paintings that they own more "valuable". It's constantly going on. I mean seriously you want me to think cambell's soup cans in different colors is art.

It's the bastardization of improvement and growth. Like a pole with ribbons wrapping is improved with a snake wrapping a staff. And art is somehow worthy of respect and getting dressed up for because you want to try to attract it and get it to give you a blow job or something.

This kind of stuff goes on and on and eventually you have it expressed as some crap like oral b toothbrushes. Where sticking the nylon bristles into nylon stick in a differnt angle is scientifically better and they keep doing it over and over until the valuation of the toothbrush goes from 45 cents to 8 dollars and then people get tired of the shit and just want to buy the toothbrush so they can cut it into a shiv and jam it into someones eye and say something like keep foreign objects outside of your brain or it will make you stupid.

And you're angry because gold bitches is a counter culture that cultivates resistance to a present culture that is harming a great fucking deal of people and everyones sick of it. So now that you've discovered the disagreement heiarchy and think you have some kind of great new powerful gun to go shoot your mouth off with. Now you have to discover the cult heiarchy and how it roots and branches to produce suckers and low hanging fruit.

Fuck your sistine chapel.

Refutation - Specifically refutes said chapel with penis.

Now don't you just feel like a jackass with a farming for dummies manual.

So here. Enjoy some cult culture and counter culture humor.

You admit that it "offends you" because of your beliefs regarding obscenity. Others here call you a "dickhead" because they believe anyone with your belief is a "dickhead".

Frankly, what is more immaterial is your sophmoronic (sp) cultural commentary, we have bigger things to worry about. So once your done with your spell check,your dictionary diktats, and decorum lessons say something relevant about economics or the massive ponzi scheme we are embroiled in or go away.

Perhaps this is the verbalization of a young insecure boy that is unsure of his species preferences (nothing like porkin the pooch, or so I am told, not being of that gender)?  Some men never grow up.... <lol and rolls eyes>

Seriously, it is difficult to "add tone" and "inflection"  in a blog and this word is intended to convey approval, astonishment, "you got it right" "this is really cool man"..etc.., this expression is NOT used with the intent to be a "deogatory comment aimed at women". 

Look on the bright side, we could be in Australia, were no offense would be intended if someone called you a "funny cunt",

 "when used with a positive qualifier (good, funny, clever, etc.) in countries such as Britain, New Zealand and Australia, it conveys a positive sense of the object or person referred to.[6]"

Human communications are inherently flawed... and life is short...

The Barber of Seville is already occupied full time with Hidalgos of Santander Espagna. Those of Lisbonna have a hard boner working overtime on Socrates and his Pintos. That only leaves the Turks to send their Yatagan merchants to Athens to shave their Greek friends down to their dry nuts dipped in olive oil. What a moussaka, houmous and dolmates pot pourri this will be!
