I must say, what is up with the ravens?  There are a lot of them around these days.  Harbingers of bad tidings, I believe.

If a solar EMP takes out the US power grid then you are looking at Fukushima times fifty.  Power will be the least of our concerns.

Come on y'all, seriously, as soon as people chase down that snipe, it will be time for a remake of War of the Worlds or some pesky comet en route to destroy us. 

Now, pass the northern lights and if that's caked, then load up some afternoon delight.

HARP is #1 because you can't get 200:1 non-recourse leverage on NFLX.  Artificially low interest rates drive the sheep to risk.  Same as it ever was.

Add a 1.75 of vodka and that flick goes what the fuck into off the tracks never never land.
Actually, not a bad idea to meet her leaving rehab with one of those.  A few cogent moments and then, bazoomies!

Yes, but how would have HARP done on the search list if American Idol was in season?

#20 is "flat tax" which is surprising, and a start.  "When "end the fed" is in the top 10 then we'll be getting somewhere.  That "occupy," "OWS", nor anything related is in there indicates it hasn't gained as much traction amongst the general population as some would want to make it out as having.

Google rankings are purchased, so why aren't these hot trends purchased...or appropriated? Do you mean to tell me that whenever whoever actually eats McRib hears an ad for it they go straight for the internet to google it? I assert that these "trends" are trended from the top down. Kind of how people get trended into the military during war time and trended into tax filing around April 15.

AJ would say "Google blah blah, e.g. Cancer Viruses in Vaccines", a short time later the phrase would top this list.

McDonald's to leverage 2 trillion McRibs to collateralize EU debt crisis. McRib 2.0 rumored to contain cancer fighting virus.

Wendy's and Burger King expected to downgrade McRib meat grading to F+ due to suspected heightened saw dust content.
