• Gold Money

    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Meanwhile In Chicago...

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Probably the most symbolic photo of the day, courtesy of Breaking911, showing a "huge sinkhole in Chicago due to heavy flooding at 96th & Houston. 3 cars in the hole." No further commentary needed.

This is going to prohibit much needed investments in productive businesses in favor of shoveling ...

Several broken windows there. With the fertilizer factory, Boston, and this, Krugman must be having an orgasm about now. Speaking of, where are you, Dr. Paul Krugman?

Might as well use FRN's to fill that hole now since they'll be worthless soon.

Newsflash - Paul Krugman about to write op-ed describing how this sink hole will be GDP positive for the auto industry due to car windows broken.  News at 11.

Do not try and bend the spoons, that is unpossible.  Instead only try to realize the truth; there are no spoons.  Then you'll see it's not the spoons that bend it is the fakeonomy.

Everyone has that which means nothing will come of it.  Just like the past 12 years.  It's just a lazy meandering spiral into the pits of hell and one day everyone will wonder "how did I get here and why is my hair on fire?"

It would have been Ironic, if the sinkhole was in Detriot with a Crysler and a GM vehicle in the sink hole with the Ford vehicle barely safe from the sinkhole.

I don't know about you, but I am happy my tax dollars are used for papering over fraud and making criminal bankers whole. Infrastructure is so 20th century.

The water table level in the US has been getting lower and lower with the pumping for irrigation. Also road contractors fail to remove organic material before compaction.

However, the most compelling reason is that the earth sucks.

i live in chicago. this was all over the news this morning. water dept said a broken water main caused this. water dept commissioner said the main dates back to 1915. it's not bad road construction.....it's our deteriorating infrastructure that's way beyond it's useful life.

 

it swallows the white dodge eventually too.....here's the vid...

The sink hole is the city itself,  the pit you see is just an impromtu underground parking lot.
