I don't live in the States, but check, check, check, check, check, and check.

You so right, EK. But I think I will still double check again.

Speaking of pink, I'm looking to barter with the ladies post crisis.  Time to go buy some tampons and pads.  Girls will just eat me up.

Or you'll eat them (preferably at a time when the tampons and pads aren't required).

I am Chumbawamba.

That is actually a really good idea.  Hmmm  Add this to my stockpiles of aspirin, spices, and bandages to use for bartering.  Worse case Ontario, the pads and tampons make great packing for flesh wounds...

If you are not just a doctor wannabee but a real physician then you should be ashamed of yourself for this.

If you are just a disguised wannabee pretending to have intelligence then you should be ashamed of yourself.

No woman in the world would wish to sit beside this attitude.

Pompous Ass.

Sometimes gallows humor is how people deal with shit.  Pull the aforementioned tampon out of your ass and lighten up.

Real men don't need to barter/bargain with women.  Even the fat, old and bald.

So, I'm sure you're all three of the latter and not the former...which is why you WILL need to bargain.

All of you idiots are offensive.

Would you put up with these kind of insults and demeaning jokes.

Take it back to your playground sandbox where it belongs.

Quit polluting my world with your crap. Would you say this to your mother or sister? So what makes it OK here. Say this crap to your wife? To your daughter?

Hey whackjob, this is an adult playground.

If you don't care for the language you can leave.

I'm quite certain that if any particular poster goes over the top too many times his or her account will be disabled.

You bucking to be a moderator? I don't think there are any. I don't think there need to be any.

You are a scrotum tucking pussy with a thin skin.


I actually have older sisters; if you think a couple tampon jokes are bad you obviously have not spent any quality time with real females for any length of time.  Gallows humor is how people deal with shit.  I actually know people in the affected areas of Japan AND I live on the recieving end of the plume on the West Coast.


Get over youself and try peeing standing up for a change.

It's true animals are starting to act crazy. My cat, for instance, when she uses the litter box even scrapes with her paw on the side of the box where there is no litter. I just noticed this around the time of the Japan quake.

Oh please, there is no method or computer model for predicting earthquakes. If anything, the massive Japanese earthquake relieved a lot of built-up stress in the tectonic plates making another, separate giant earthquake much less likely in the next few months.

One of this threats - A derivative-fueled banking crisis.

Can you think of a better reason why Bank of Japan would spend 700 billion dollars (55T yen) in 4 days other than to try and forestall this?

Upcoming peak oil disaster? check.

Upcoming US Treasury disaster? check.

Upcoming nuclear disaster? check.

Upcoming Middle East disaster? check.

I mean, fuck me, we're literally swimming with black swans these days, and every problem - EVERY MOTHERFUCKING PROBLEM - is solved by printing even more money. Which leads to,

Upcoming currency crisis? check.

"Albino" Black Swan Ahead?

Amidst all the news flowing around the Japan Super Quake - and we'll get to developments on that front in a moment - I want to start this morning's discussion on a "credit, where credit is due" note.


Last Monday in this column in "What's ahead in the libretto") , my friend Gary Lammert (the Economic Fractalist) had sent us a note predicting a March 8 high in the markets plus or minus a day.  Tuesday, right on call, the market rallied from an opening of 12,085 Dow to close at 12,214.38 and that high hasn't been bested since.


"OK, so what?"  Hand on there pard, Lammert sent me a note Sunday afternoon that explains now that his predicted high is in, we're about to go through something which would be as rare as an "albino" black swan event - something that happens every 250 years or so, and  probably equates to something on e degree larger than the South Sea Bubble popping in 1720...

You're not looking at this right. The next unexpected swan is the one with scales, fangs, tallons, and breathes fire. Oh, and shoots lasers from its eyes. Now *that's* a swan!

Umm... how about no?

Try exponential government growth. Malthus fails because his projections never allow for the reality that (sans welfare) people tend to reproduce according to their ability to provide for the offspring. When times are good, large families can be supported. When times are bad, you have to focus your efforts on sustaining those already present. The idea of adding even more becomes a hardship to avoid.

they're hardly mutually exclusive.  we're sucking all the goodies (clean air, water, arable land, fossil fuel, wild animals, wilderness) from a finite world for a corporate/government fantasy of infinitely (and in many cases geometrically) expanding revenues, profits, income, debt, money and power.
