Friday Humor: Party's Over

Just. One. Moar...

A mountain of seized drugs waits to be set on fire in Quetta, Pakistan as part of a ceremony marking the UN International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. All across the world, anti-drug campaigners took a stand against drug abuse yesterday. Throughout Pakistan the Anti-Narcotics Force destroyed 121 tons of narcotics. Drug trafficking from neighboring Afghanistan has increased drastically in Pakistan over the last 30 years.

And from RT:

 

Iran burnt at least 100 tons of illicit drugs on Wednesday in the capital in a ceremony attended by officials and foreign dignitaries. Officials said Tehran seized more than 500 tons of various narcotics in the last Iranian calendar year, which ended March 20. The ceremony came as the world marked the annual UN International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Iran is located on a major drug route between Afghanistan and Europe, and large amounts of drugs flow through the country.

And a thought experiment in New Normal macromonetary linkages: If the mountain (of drugs) will not come to Manhattan, thousands of bankers will not spend other people's money to procure nose candy (and instead invest it in 50x fwd P/E stocks) thereby leaving dealers scrambling for liquidity, impacting downstream commerce (every NYC drug dealer provides for 2 stripper and 3 hooker jobs, and countless support occupations), and collapsing the velocity of money even more, pushing GDP lower, and making a Bernanke exit impossible.

Pakistan's drug market receives a taper. Prices of remaining junk skyrocket. Angry junkies pour into the streets...

Trust me. Somebody already switched the bags of cocaine with bags of flour and is probably shipping it to NYC for pennies on the dollar per pound. They just burning a pile of baking flour.

thousands of bankers will not spend other people's money to procure nose candy

Nose candy usually refers to cocaine, although one can pretty much put anything up one's nose if so inclined.

There goes the CIA's cash bonuses for the year.... 

Jam Akin's picture

Or maybe not - those might be some of the "counterfeit drugs" we've been hearing about from that part of the world this week from our hard working authorities...

Fish Gone Bad's picture

My guess is they only seized was what they wanted to have seized.

cynicalskeptic's picture

Any REAL drugs burned were likely 'bad' product - contaminated or whatever.  Might as well provide a 'media moment' showing support for the 'war on drugs'.

The good stuff is flown out by the CIA directly to the US.

What a waste.  Stupid.

g speed's picture

think of it as price support--like pouring milk down the drain in Iowa.

Divided States of America's picture

or demolishing perfectly good homes to keep prices inflated while hordes of homeless people cant find a place to sleep?

No shit ~ When I first saw the picture [without reading the headline], I thought... OH COOL, somebody in the desert figured out an industrious way to build a shelter...

"UN International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking"

 

Ah yes, the UNIDADAIT. How could I have forgotten? I was sure I'd put it on my calendar.

NidStyles's picture

To be honest on most days I forget the UN exists until they do something stupid or step on their own dick and make headlines again. What a useless Commie organization that was...

Propaganda..
UN..

It WWZ, Brad Pitt (hero of the World!) is an Agent of the UN

 

Bastiat's picture

Hollywood is total propaganda machine.  Some recent examples:

The whole Keifer Sutherland '24' thing, basically justifying the higher moral ground for torture and other war crimes.  I saw part of one show and heard about others.  Pure propaganda.

The use of the word HOPE in two hi profile movies during the Obama election:

Angelina Jolie in the one about the woman who's kid got grabbed by some pedo.  Can remember the quote but it was in a dramatic scene and word was emphasized so it jumped ou.

Sean Penn in Harvey Milk:  "You've got to give 'em HOPE."

Two pro-CIA movies last December: Zero Dark and Argo.

BTW do you know what the "S" on Superman stands for according to the new Superman movie?   It is not an "S" it turns out, but a Krypton symbol for . . . wait for it . . . "Hope"

It is a fucking barrage.

I thought TV taught people what was real,

how to feel,

now real life has... no appeal.

(I paraphrased that from Marina and the Diamonds)

Loving zombies and the book, I saw the movie WWZ yesterday.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOO disappointing, not anything of the book remains except a nod to it's find patient zero motive for the 'hero's' actions.   Spoiler alert:

The movie starts with various pop media clips such as that ass pierce morgan talking about global warming, various clips of dolphins and whales beaching themselves, yada yada.   The first fifth of the movie is spent sucking up time showing Pitt's home life, love of his children, how perfect his life is.   Next thing you know everyone is turning to zombies on a busy workday morning and on his commute somewhere with the whole family (maybe bringing the wife to work).  Fortunately for him a garbage truck comes barreling down a gridlocked philly street plowing a passage for apparently the world's only chance to be saved to get out of there and safely on 95N.  I won't get into the whole 'jew' thing - and don't get me wrong, there are way too many jew haters on here but some of the animosity is deserved.   But, there is a very good summation of the whole movie at this link from an apparently self-loathing jew and it is a very good summary of what is so very wrong with what could've been a great movie...

No - WWZ is not all that - Tyler Durden, where are you????

Years ago we got stopped on Alligator Alley because a truck had crashed.  Seems it was a semi full of pot...and it was on fire.  Great thing was we were downwind.  Took the FHP about an hour to get everyone to move their cars...
