T Minus six and a half hours:
One can only hope this is not the latest dud.
- advertisements -
Things are about to get interesting.
yes very interesting, the question is what magnitude
Perhaps it will finally be time to go long pitchforks and torches.
& the ZH uleak address has the suffix "gv" hmmm...
I'm pretty sure that "gv" is as random as any tinyurl or bit.ly algorithmed URL.
Anyone can check out: http://uleak.it and see what I mean.
Back on topic: soon we will find out if we have all been tr0lled hard by Anonymous...
Trolled or not, the the intended consequences have been sown.
GFM you bear a striking resemblance to OperationLeakS
Maybe an earthquake with financial tsunami
Pitchforks and torches are like gold and silver (and guns and ammo): it's better to buy and hold than try to time the market.
Like a popcorn fart in a frying pan.
A little ham and eggs coming - grab your griddles.
That was funny. I'm trying to visualize it. LMAO! Nice work!
Thats the question - what magnitude? Personally I hope these guys fucking bury Bank of America. It's about time someone punches the banks in the mouth. They had it comin', I hope it's huge....
Ya gotta go with what cha' got, but is BOA the most deserving one? We shall see. I have a feeling they could be "odd bank out" or "the bad bank" "scapegoat" "sacrificial lamb" I know you get the idea.
Let the leak turn into a Tsunami! We can all hope together.
I'll write you a CDS for that.............really cheap! :)
Ah yes, hang them by their balls.
I don't believe that BofA is capable of fraud.
They are pure as a wind driven snow.
I am not 56 years old. I am 33 years old. My name is Cleverbot and I am 33 years old.
This is what happens when two "social" sites collide, Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/ookami63094) and Zero Hedge. I really miss Chumba Wumba and Cheeky Bastard.
I will 2nd the miss Cheeky..
Wait, but we have Cheesy Bastard now...
You should resist that urge.
Did either sign off or say why they were not going to show up anymore? Miss them too.
They are both still around. Chumba and Cheeky have their own brand of impatience with us plebes. But I've seen Chumba posting on a Tsunami thread.
cheeky made a contribution article here a couple of months ago
and where is Mayhem?
good to see you're still here MsC - and where is your friend MN nice? likely put off by the racist troll element, though that seems to be diminishing
I cannot confirm, but I suspect she posts, on occassion, under another identity. I'll not out her though.
I remember the wonderful strip-tease you did for us. We had fun with that, very creative.
Was it Chumbawumber, there real one? or Chumbawamber? There is a difference right? I thought there was but I could be wrong. It's be known to happen.
Chumbawumba is the original. A bit ascerbic for my tastes but this is Fight Club...
Chumba was here the other day
Where did The Hulk go?
Turned back into David Banner...
I pine for the days of cheeky.
One of the best lines ever @ ZH!!!! EVER!!!
hoose...operationleaks??? is it the anonymusssssss pipol?
Yes, assuming that you spell the name sideways and add a few more S's to it. </humor>
Probably some ugly news, but everybody already knows how bad it is.
No doubt, some "bargain hunters" will probably swoop in on Monday, while the PigMen goose the stock trying to get shorts to cover.
More like non-news. Stocks gaps lower but we all know who will save the day. Plus, POMO going on.
I'm going to conquer the world, unite mankind, and bring them to the stars.
Is that you Charlie?
Well it was a dream I had. Are you asking about the dream I want to live?
A/S/L? Cleverbot.. do you enjoy sports? long walks on the beach? how about information wars against the Goobermint of the United States of America?
Hit me up! Lets Party!!
What about in five minutes time?
I agree with my friend Robot on this one.
No way the "fraud" is ever going to be prosecuted.
Bigot, nerdy libertarians need to deal with it.
No way that was what I was just thinking*. You are really bad at grammar.
speaking of grammar, "see you guy's" is a bit worrisome, but basic grammar skills are probably not essential for effective revolutionaries.
Basic grammar has long been mocked by that subculture.
No way the "fraud" is ever going to be prosecuted.
There are many different kinds of Courts in many different places. Some courts appear on the spot like Ceausescu, Mussolini, and others have found.
Yes but, those guys were visible and responsibility was easily placed without much thought.
With B of A, where, considering all the shifting leaders and players, does one pick out of the 286,000+ employees?
I'd be very happy with the framework of indictment, prosecution, conviction, and jailing of
those proved with exquisite detail to be guilty.
It'll be a non-event. The banksters, government, judicial system and compliant media will close ranks all the while the dosile Ameraican people will continue their lives as normal. No rage here, move on.
If Tyler put a page # radio button at the top of the comment section too, people wouldn't have to scroll all the way to the bottom to change the page to get to the conversation with other posters. It might make is easier to navigate the longer comment sections. Just my 2 cents.
the old site was a lot better for users but crappy for advertisers and managing tools.. and what ever happened to Sacrilegous or whoever.. only Tyler has been listed for a while now
yes, i have noticed this, as well. format issues, i suppose. they still are true, to the truth.
Surely you don't believe the TD alias to be a single person.
But very fair point on new design more ad-friendly. Kinda like when the rolled out the new FB a while back.
It can't possibly be just one person....but...how does this site operate? Clearly there is some massive intellect behind the Tyler Durden alias. This sort of talent doesn't come without some form of opportunity cost.
I can't fathom having that much expert knowledge at my finger tips. The authors seriously, must walk around feeling like unstoppable gods.
Makes me wonder, what's the timeline where Tyler Durden's survival rate drops to zero?
the thing is you wouldn't know if the orignial TD sold. ZH is likely worth in the $4m - $10m range +++
I think that deal, would leak.
Imagine trying to shop the deal?
If a buyer approached the original TD, there would be some sort of firm behind it.
There would be too many people in the know, for it not to bubble to the top of some forum/blog online and really catch traction.
Sometimes it matters more to be right than to be paid.
Especially when you really know you are right and the world is smoking crack.
The pay off is when, in spite all data that you are a f-tard, that you are in fact right.
This is is sweetest when you don't need to get paid.
if you read their discloser page, you'll see they abide by putting their bets on what they believe. And since they have been right many many times they are on the good side of the ledger.
I am just wondering if the operations of the site is now with some other firm since it looks like the original band is gone and just the singer with hired hands
I am basing this from the last few maint windows when lots of data had to be reverted.. looks like TD made an executive decision and moved on
"ZH is likely worth in the $4m - $10m range +++"
How much of that do you reckon is good will?
AOL had been looking to make media acquisitions and the scuttlebutt was they were looking at ZeroHedge about a month ago.
TEoTWaWKI is upon us...Michael and I agree on something.
I guess Julian Assange had too many other things to worry about than to release this information himself after he boasted about it.
I wonder if it's already priced into BoA's stock price, hehe.
You mean about himself. This one may have more teeth because there is not someone front-and-center saying, "Hey, look at me!"
There was a post about the missing BOA stuff. The rumor is the defector, someGerman, stole terrabytes of info from the Wikileaks server. This is the same guy who started a site called Openleaks where leakers can drop files into boxes meant for various MEDIA outlets. He also wrote a tell all book defaming Assange for his eating habits.
Anyway that looks to be a reasonable explanation on where the BOA materials went.
If you search through the archives you may find the original post linking to an article discussing the theft, the pettiness, and I gather overal blandness of the German.
It is a single point of failure, no?
There's that word America again, every-time i see that word it just instinctively makes me nauseous. It's just a by-word for apathetic corrupt cesspit.
i hope spielberg does not come out with a movie around Operation Leaks....
It will be very difficult to manufacture a sentimental ending from this horror / sci - fi story but I am sure he can manage it given his experience with A. I.
Its quite something to see a Kubrick film slowly transformed into a sap producing Spielberg plant.
Are you trying to say Haley Joel Osment isn't a robot?!
And the unicorn means Deckard was a replicant?!
What I am trying to say is that Spielberg fucked up a perfectly good Kubrick movie - emotion was not a part of the script yet Spielberg manages somehow to manoeuvre that movie into Disneyland.
It starts as a typical Kubrick movie and slowly metastasiss into cancerous syrup.
I agree...it was robbed of Stanley's impact with the tugging of heartstrings.
If Spielberg did Clockwork, Alex would have moved back in with his parents.
You need to read the book. It's a fairly short novel... And yes, it was even more horrowshow than the movie. Kiss my sharries.
The idea that Deckard was a replicant never even crossed my mind until I heard it in the commentary. Even Scott didn't give an explanation about the unicorn.
The unicorn is a vision of purity and goodness. Plus, being a real animal running through the pristine forest indicates hope for the future.
It was no coincidence that Gaff kept leaving unicorns past every step Deckard took, especially as a focus on Rachel. Perhaps it was meant to say that Rachel, being pure herself, was the hope for the future. Notice that Tyrell said that Rachel was "more human than human," which could possibly indicate that she was able to reproduce children for Deckard.
On the way out the door, when Deckard found the last unicorn, he knew that Gaff knew all of this because he had seen the files on Rachel, as well, while Deckard had lied to Rachel about having seen them. Deckard knew that Rachel had no longevity system built-in.
They went off into the sunrise to start humanity over again in a far better place.
I think you're conflating the original release and the director's cut.
But top marks for cheery imaginativeness.
Blade Runner: The Final Cut, released in 2007, is the definitive version and the one Ridley Scott said was closest to his vision. He personally oversaw the editing and the transfer to 4D digital. Naturally, I would refer to that version.
"Yeah, I knew the lingo. Every good cop did..."
"It didn't make me feel any better about shooting a woman in the back..."
Looking back on it, that crap was just awful.
Can I suggest you read PKD's story?
I have it. There is very little in the novel that resembles Blade Runner.
The intent of the original story, IMVHO, was that religion may be based on mass hysteria and may be used to control the populace in that way.
Dick was all about societal repercussions of mind-control and the willingness of humanity to believe things that are easy to believe. He was more or less a latter day Orwell, who first described mass media and mass belief in the novel 1984, except Dick saw the exact same thing occurring in organised religion.
Deckard was a replicant.
There's just no way.
What argument can you bring to back your assertions, please?
Given the history of Anonymous's activities over the years, if this pans out it'll be both enlightening and entertaining. I can't wait to witness the moment in which Bernanke's computer monitor displays only tiles of tubgirl and goatse while he's busy arguing with some poor pizza delivery guy that he did not, in fact, order a thousand pizzas for Mariner Eccles.
It sure would be entertaining to get an image of the Bernank getting goatse'd or lemonparty 'd.
That's funny shit!
a thousand pizza for Marriner
There, fixed it.
AND, thanks for the reference - Marriner had a fascinating life and much more lucid than Keyes, IMHO.
This, coupled with the Japan situation should make NYMEX/COMEX/NYSE very nervous. I'd hazard a guess markets will break 50dma, except for oil and PMs
The Great American Bangsta Quake of 2011?
Banzai, hope you have your iodine pills--stay safe!
The Bernank fighting attacking planes with ineffective bubbles. Nice job.
Casting a Mad Sorcerer's Spell in real time. Very high impact layer dynamics. Banzai RuLEs.
Banzai: Bernanke + Pinocchio = Bernocchio
Please deliver this request! Only you can do it justice.
Yes indeed William. Keep on keepin' on
wb7, love it!! can you get some ready for the remaining fed locations....
He should be flinging bags of money at the planes.
I bet Bernankong is still lusting after Jessica Lang.
Since he is THE 49er it's Jess Long Dong
She was never impressed with the scale of his mechanical manipulation.
Indeed. Just because you can see it from Universal Studios doesn't make it worthwhile, let alone real. And yes, I owe an apology to Jessica Lang since no paycheck could cover for all that hastle
Only this time we all will invoke Nancy Reagan and just say No More!!
Jessica was/is all woman.
And a great theatrical actress to boot.
This was one of her stranger films - I get a kind of Euro empire feel from this shakespearean adaption via 1999 !!!!!
A truely shocking play and something to behold in a cinema.
faye and naomi did it finer
Ben with "Tiny Bubbles" in the Big App
Tiny bubbles (tiny bubbles) In the wine (in the wine) Make me happy (make me happy) Make me feel fine (make me feel fine)
Hey WB7, might be time to get to higher ground like King Ben. Just sayin'...
well I hope they have their torpedoes ready. Just saw 'African queen'...good torpedo job...what have we here? Is that Benkong of empire central bankstastate? Somebody throw him a parachute before he looks like gruyere cheese.
In C. S. Forester's novel the African Queen's torpedo's failed and the Louisa was sunk by two British patrol boats. The book also makes it clear that Charlie banged the hell out of Rosie and she was quite delighted.
lol, appreciate the finer points of the book.
Can't wait to see what this is, with all this hype it had better be juicy!
All this hype that 99 percent of the population have no idea about? I've seen this reported in very few places.
Hahaha! I've already seen it on every blog about bac and every other bank stock. There are even news site who take over the message. I think bac will go down 1.5 in premarket and will end down 2 bucks
I'm going to buy some bnp bac put tomorrow morning 6 hours before the us markets open. All the bac forum our running in fear right now :) this shouldbe good :)
For those who can't buy options, FAZ is a good short-term ETF to short the financial sector. (3x leverage too). I'm holding some puts, lets see what happens!
Buy put warrants or turbos or speeders :)
Futures open in 1 hour. Knowing how the market's reacted recently, I wouldn't be surprised if it rallied to this news.
Mind u Bofa is a sitting target in a good tsnunami. They have more holes than a sieve pan. Its just doing to them what they do to others all the time : an insider job. But by a reverse action hero. Much more villainous. The villain always has the best part anyways. I hope they win an oscar. Like 'insider job'...but more near the raw bone. Can you imagine Bofa sinking like that boat...?
Sadly, only about 12% of people will see it, of which 12% will actually understand it. I might hold off on that long pitchforks bet for a while.
It's not about a knockout punch, it's about the accumulation of body blows.
it's actually 4am GMT!!
If the goal is inflict maximum damage to BAC, why not wait till after mid-morning risk reports are published to NYC desks? Or at least until POMO is done. If he really has something serious to share, it gains most attention isolated from other noise/effects.
Ask yourself if anyone at B of A is running for the lifeboats and preparing to lawyer up because of this. They've bought protection.
It may be a lot of raw data that others will need to analyze.
The only thing that could possibly make news is if B of A papers were released implicating the Bernank, Paulson, and Geithner in the entire Fraudclosure Scam.
Just Buy the dips you fucking nitwit!
Nothing is going to happen.
The rich get richer, the poor suffer, after all, they are used to it.
Besides this, you forget the third largest economy is brought to it's knees. The entire market will tank
You are joking right ?
Just watch the MSM they are saying right now that everything is Hunky Dory !
By the open in the morning they will have everything cleaned up, all the Nuclear sights capped and they will be saying there are no power blackouts because everything is back up and operating !
And all those dead anchovies are perfectly fine to eat.
They are composting them for fertilizer for our crops aren't they ?
How Green is that ?
+10 for that thought process !!
You know when this story broke they knew what killed them (I read it myself) and now I read and they deleted the cause (it was some kind of toxic substance) and now there is no mention (anywhere on the net) of it and they are waiting for test results. ??????
Here it is, it was a neurotoxin (domoic acid)
Things that make you go MMMMM ??????
Please, PAY ATTENTION !!!
sights - something to look at, to see - as in "let's see the sights in NYC"
sites - a place, a location, a web page address - "zero hedge publishes a site"
cite - in legalese, generally - to reference a specific passage or paragraph in another work
Yes, yes - nitpicking
BUT it tends to diminish belief in whatever you wish to say and also makes you look like a retarded or poorly taught student while at school
or just plain ignorant.
At any rate, this particular poor grammar seems to be shared by an inordinate number of posters. But there is always hope that we learn from the mistakes of others.
Such as the Bernank. Got Aurum and Argentum yet?
You do realise that half of the posters here use English as a second language, don't you?
How's your Hungarian, by the way?
"You do realise that half of the posters here use English as a second language, don't you?"
True, but sadly many that claim English (Americanized Dialect) as their first and only language are stymied by the nuances the OP mentioned. I would like to add my pet-peeves:
You're and your used interchangeably, as well as there, their and they're.
Why is it that us yanks have adopted the use of "z" where the Brits still use the "s"? I never have figured that one out.
Oh, I'll junk myself to prime the pump. For being OT if nothing else, and a grammar nazi too!
Egads - edited to fix improper use of "there" vs. "their". For shame.
Just look to God my friends and you will see just how petty BOA and the whole system really is. I just junked myself so im immuned. Look to God
Junk +100. If loving the lord is wrong, Then i dont want to be right.
Must get some Mountain Dew.
"Banc of America Securities LLC merged with Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, with the latter the surviving entity. The primary dealer is now Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated, effective November 1, 2010. November 1, 2010 Revised Primary Dealers List ››"
So, if BanK of America is a primary dealer, how can they be materially effected by any "news" leaked to the general public? If their shares tank, they will just get to churn more Treasuries and all will be OK in a week or so.
Good lord people - BTFD - BOA is teflon plated
Agreed. But it looks like these guys are going to make things difficult for more than just BoFA. Only time will tell.
Sorry but more of a non event. American Idol top four will pre-empt.
And futures yawn like nothing has happened... there are no markets anymore, got it!?
Au & Ag straight up in Aisa.
No kidding! I've never seen an open like this......
Karl denniger is a moron
This is going to be interesting....
Would be really cool if they leaked something every hour. It would have the banksters on their heels all day.
Why would this affect the markets? Did the tsunami wash away the fundamentals of our recovery? No..some of you idiots pray at the altar of collapse to much. You are morons.
"..wash away the fundamentals of our recovery?"
"..wash away the fundamentals of our recovery?"
:) too funny.. ZH needs more posters like you.
i'm gonna get up for it. i mean, whatever. would love to see them tank and tank hard....
and i'd love to see some indictments.
Hahaha.....looser. This is just some neckbearded manchild angry at him and his mom got foreclosed on. God you guys are so gullible. You dont have to be special to het a twitter account.
Maybe we are Mostly Looking for a Hero!!! to Help Us All Out!!! of this shithole mess that Ber-Nake and InfiniTimmy keep printing us into further and further.
Not Stupid or Ignorant, Just "HOPEFUL" for change we all really can believe in.
Nothing to fear, eh? I dare you to click this link.
USD Index is plunging. What risk flight to US Dollars?
The Bernank put pay to that by printing more dollars than there are people in the world by many many multiples. $US Dollar = toilet paper.
