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...

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).

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.

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

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.

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

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.
