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 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?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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...?

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.

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)

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?"

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.

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.
