Presenting Ben Bernanke's Desktop - Redux

Tyler Durden's picture

Just as Ben Bernanke's monetary easing program changes with the times (back then he believed it was the Stock that mattered, now it is Flow, but one thing is constant: always moar), so does his computer desktop. And while we know, tentatively, what his preferred computer space looked like three years ago, the times have changed. Behold Ben Bernanke's new and improved PC desktop...

Bernanke is a sack of pus. And where is his money printing app?

Gutenberg made the first printing press (which led to printing of the Bible, increased literacy, and led to the Protestant Reformation - and eventually led to the Second Vatican Council which moved Catholic services from Latin to the native tongue of the Parish).

Green arrow for beating me to it.

Yea, yea. Gutenberg printed Bibles and changed the world. Revisionist history!

The REAL impact of the printing press was, wait for it........

PAMPHLETS! Flyers posted to bill boards, church doors, telephone poles. (Telephone poles?) Any way. Pro reformation. Anti reformation. Kill the Papists. Kill the heretics. It was the first mass media event to reach out to the people.

The second thing that made the Reformation happen. UNDERWEAR!

Yes, the recent prosperity allowed the masses to possess something they never had before. Linen underwear. Underwear eventuality becomes rags. Cheap rags shredded to make lots of  paper.

The printing press is so simple the ancient Egyptians could have invented it. But why? Mass printing isn't possible with out cheap paper.

I know! I was having a few chuckles but when I finally noticed the login ID my sides went in to orbit.

Thinking the desktop needs to be brought into 21st century and make it a mobil device with a display of Apps.

He's not up to date on that stuff, obviously.  Besides, you only need DOS to execute a PRINT command.

Bernanke reads Zero Hedge too?

Frastric's picture

That would imply Bernanke has a little good left in his soul...

ebworthen's picture

You're mistaking narcissistic curiosity for "good".

There was a "Ben Bernanke" ZH user here awhile back who always took his side on everything...

maybe he finally could not withstand the barrage of truth... or he got the Tyler's axe for espousing blatant bullshit & multiple inexcusable lies.

Inflation hasn't forced him into Linux yet?

NoDebt's picture

Linux is only for right wing radicals, doncha know.  This board probably runs on Linux, for example (just guessing).

I for one fully support or monetary overlords. After all, we rabble must have someone to lead us.

Didn't see any hard control porn on those searches, so he's good to go.

He hasn't caught onto the cheesepopebux yet.

I'm surprised that they even have a "Help" menu.

Where is the yellow Post-it note that reminds Ben to say that "Gold is Tradition" when phoned up by a Bloomberg journalist?.... or maybe its on the screen-saver....

Google doesn't seem to go with the program !

Maybe they need an IRS audit...

Thank you.

Hello HAL.

I've just picked up a fault in the QE-35 unit. Its going to go a hundred percent failure within 72 hours.

Yes, it's puzzling. I would recommend that you go outside and put the unit back in operation and let it fail. Its should then be a simple matter to track down the cause. 

I don't think there is any question about it. It can only be attributed to human error. The 9001 series has a perfect operational record. This sort of thing has cropped up before and it has always been due to human error.

Nice work. Honestly, this was my favorite desktop from 2010| ‘Fuck Yeah, I Rock’ still makes me laugh today…
