I have a friend in the military who just tweeted:

"Captain of the USS Reagan told the crew to make video conferences home cause they dont know how sick they might get."

Have not confirmed yet but he's an honest guy so take it for what it is...

A fact they are now evacuating the families of those based in Japan. Unprecedented moves.

Buy hey, we don't want anyone to panic.

I wish I had enough cajones to fully capitalize on this.  It is a beautiful intervention... First buy the yen, and now, time to monetize it.  Probably Goldman FX traders who showed them how this is done.  Very impressive, along with the general preparation.  

I am serious, no other nation could have handled this better!  M9.0 is 34 times bigger thatn M7.5 for most US nuclear plants... it is the aftershocks and tsunami that destroyed Fukushima...  If the same thing happened in West Coast, watch out for the looting and how prepared OC crowd really are.

With all the shit going on in Japan, I went out and bought 10 gallons of bottled drinking water, and filled up my gas tanks.

Now that all the un-fun stuff is done, it is time to get down to some more serious business.

I have a Japanese spherical ice mold.  Supposedly, the sphere cools the whisky the most without diluting it, so it's the thing to do at the whisky bars in Japan were a shot  of Nikka 17yr is about $12.

Sad to say, but that was what I was doing in Tokyo the last Friday night of the old Japan (March 4th).

Diluting Old No. 7 with anything other than ice made from pure rain water is a crime against nature.

Weird World. Getting weirder by the minute.

Full court press, when will these guys give up?

In fact, the bigger question seems to be, why can't these guys give up? What is driving the market madness? Do they have reptilians at their throats? Who spawned this bankster/political lot? Are they really lobotomized abductees following some crazed alien overlord's orders?

Tell us Alien IQ?

Because their actions sure do nto make them look/feel human. At all.

Cue Henry "Detente", Mr Playgirl (ughhhhh) Kissmyassinger.
