Kirk: I have a wierd feeling of deja vu. How will we get out of this chaos?

Spock: The purpose is to experience fear, fear in the face of certain death, to accept that fear, and maintain control of oneself and one's crew. This is the quality expected in every Starfleet captain.

Oh and Scottie, have you finished with your tapeworm study? Are they indeed Vulcan as expected?

Scottie: Yes we are just waiting for William Banzai to complete the new Tapeworm series in his latest weapon of Visual Combat before we release the findings.

Kobayashi Maru indeed. It's what central bankers have been trying to do - cheat.

Spock: Captain, we must find a way to stop the world's economy from collapsing or the Federation will never exist. Logically, the Facebook IPO must be stopped.

Kirk: Later Spock, later.  We're here to stop JJ Abrams.

Spock, if we beam the money up they will just think it was vaporized.

in this day and age, forget riots and protests.


To get your politician's attention, take your money out of the bank.

"Captain, do you think they'll let us play the Facebook IPO while dressed as extras for The Sting?"

"Actually, Spock, it's oddly appropriate.  Set investor phasers to stun."

Don't worry be happy:  One Million Yen for a pair of melons???  Yes!

Yubari melons fetch one million yen

A pair of premium melons from Hokkaido has fetched a price of one million yen, or about 12,500 dollars, in this year's first auction for the fruit.

The 2 melons were among 110 Yubari melons put up for auction on Thursday morning at a market in Sapporo in Japan's northern prefecture.

The winning bidder, a vegetable wholesaler based in Hokkaido, said it asked a broker to make sure to place the top bid.

The company plans to display the melons at an affiliated restaurant and serve them to customers when ripe.

Farmers say this year's melons are sweet, after surviving a cold and snowy winter.

No extra "charge."

Glad you like them.  They are quite a pair, but please try not to stare.

Spock: Irrational: I see no difference between these Euros and Federation Credits.

KirK: Ever try to pay a Ferenghi hooker with Federation Credits?

Latinum is Gold plated Tungsten. Earthlings convinced the Ferengi that Gold plated Tungsten was very valuable because why else would they keep it in such a secure place.

the bulls of Pamplona are more deadly than the Chicago commodity bulls; its the bull-shit that has now to be recycled that is becoming awesome. Where can we pile up this huge pile of bull dung? No woman wants to sniff at it even doused in Dior or Channel #5  sweetener. Even DOw/Monsanto say its too cheap to sell as competitor to their carcinogenic fertilizer and GMO fake corn rhino-horn on the cob.

Before it gets buried by all the Star Trek Geeks (It's dead, Jim): I liked the Bankia ATM one as well with MERDE taking cover.

Wait until "the running of the banks" hits Pamplona...

guess it's no big deal until it's BOA eh?-might want to keep some cash under the mattress kids.

Jim, everyone I've questioned emphatically believes the whale we seek was at the JPMorgan.  What I find most interesting, is they are all here seeking slips of paper called "Euros".

It’s Called Simple Arithmetic

$17 trillion

Between 2007 to 2009 American households lost $17 trillion in wealth and equity (as explained by Alan Kreuger awhile back).

$17 trillion

Between 2007 to 2009 the approximate amount pumped out to banks, private banks and corporations --- both in America and throughout the planet --- was $17 trillion.

The breakdown:  $16.1 trillion from the Federal Reserve directly; $750 billion in TARP bailout funds, plus the costs paid out to various hedge funds, such as Blackrock, and Wall Street-affiliated law firms to oversee and manage those bailout funds ($150 billion).

Among American households:  loss of jobs, loss of savings, loss of value in 401(k)s, loss of home and real estate value, followed by loss of credit to small businesses and companies, resulting in further loss of jobs, etc.

$17 trillion equals $17 trillion.

Simple arithmetic.

[Official Disclaimer:  Some economists would argue that all the credit extended by the bailout funds, and the Federal Reserve pumping, was paid back, but the recent GAO report detailing how banks accessed other government funds to repay those TARP funds renders such assertions highly problematical.]

Captain Kirk:  "Spock I need an analysis of this situation."

Spock:  I will need to anaylze this situation further Captain but it appears this barbaric society uses their banks to store toilet paper."

Brilliant WB7!

I love the original Star Trek (best ever IMO)

I suspect Spock would think it was illogical that this hadn't happened earlier.

I'm really curious, I can just see that you've inserted a patch (I can only just see it) on Spock's lapel, what did you edit out, if you don't mind me asking ?

How well does the Fed protect the purchasing value of the dollar? *Texas Straight Talk, by Congressman Ron Paul, May 14, 2012:

''First, it is important to understand the Federal Reserve System.  Some people claim it is a secret cabal of elite bankers, while others claim it is part of the federal government.  In reality it is a bit of both.  The Federal Reserve System is the collusion of big government and big business to profit at the expense of taxpayers.  The Fed's bailout of large banks during the financial crisis propped up poorly-run corporations that should have gone under, giving them a market-distorting advantage that no business in the United States should receive.  The recent news about JP Morgan is a case in point.  JP Morgan, a recipient of $25 billion in bailout money, recently announced it lost another $2 billion.  If a corporation shows itself to be a bottomless money pit of 'errors, sloppiness and bad judgment,' the Fed shouldn't have expected $25 billion in free money to change that or teach anyone a lesson in fiscal discipline.  But it determined that this form of deliberate capital destruction was preferable to one business suffering bankruptcy.''

            Spock:    Captain, it appears they actually give their hard earned wages over to these things called banks ,who replace them with electronic digits. The bankers in  turn risk their  wages on fantastic bets using vehcles that don't really exist.

Captain: How do I get a pice of the action?

Spock:   You get this little card that has MBA after your name.

Captain : Screw the prime directive , Scotty beam us up and set phasers on kill.  We can't let a predator life form this stupid loose in the galaxy.

You could have pulled one of those marathon runners losing control of their bowls while headed toward the bank.

So many twisted ideas to play with.
