White Smoke Rises As New Pope Is Elected, Dow Jones Hits New All Time High

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Moments ago white smoke emerged from the Sistine Chapel which means that the Cardinals of the Catholic church have elected a new pope on the second day of Conclave. The identity will be revealed shortly. Stocks take this as a bullish signal and hit intraday highs, and for the DJIA, new all time record highs. All is well in the world.

I had several comments in this thread disappear as well.

WTF Tyler?

 

PS:  On further re-reading of this thread after an absence of several hours, MANY comments have been deleted.  Just for the record, this is not the first time lately that I have noticed this kind of thing either.  I think Tyler owes us an explanation --- is this site now being "moderated", or not?  It would be nice to know up front.

It's not just ZH.  A ton of financial or economics related sites have been acting funky this afternoon.

I do believe that ZH has girded and dispersed its servers all over the world, including several located in deep underground vaults beneath the Swiss Alps.

Well, it is curious on just how selective the "bug" has been in this thread, selectively deleting all of the more admittedly offensive comments.

It has to have been Tyler(s) doing it.  That is of course his/their right, but it would be nice if he/they were forthright about it and admitted that 'moderating'/censoring the comments here is now official policy.

Maybe, just maybe, he will be an honorable man, one who will again trurn over the tables on the MONEY CHANGERS and the wrath of God will be released on all the Central Banksters in the world. They will be slaughtered as the ride towards their jets attempting to escape from their palaces to their bunkers. People will rise up in hope and the system will again slant towards those that worked and toiled, rather than from those that manipulated and stole.

Well, here is my first religious Irish Poem:

 

Pax Caramella

The Catholics have a new Pope

Who will prosecute bad priests, we hope.

And put them in jail

Without any bail,

And make them bend over for soap!
