Ref: Rule 48
PEANUT BUTTER JELLY TIME!!
They forgot the strudel for Sgt. Schultz, gonna be hell to pay.
....AND WHEN ADDING THE 2 DIGITS FROM "48" TOGETHER YOU GET 12. 12 IS ALSO CONTAINED IN THE YEAR 2012......TODAY'S GONNA BE A FUCKIN' BLOOD-BATH LMFAO
rule 48 is to prevent a blood bath i believe
nhl rule 48....illegal check to the head
appropriate or what?
down 200 off the bat.....must suck for those that still have IRA's. The algos are gonna have a field day today.
The Bankster's/Hedge Fund HFT assault on gold and silver miners, so far, is not as severe as I anticipated based on their need to beat down the enthusiam about reaching $1700 gold.
Looks like the about the only investors holding the Miners now are the Strong Hands who know the Miners = hugely discounted gold and silver (based on current prices).
Breaking news: SEC planning to implement Rule 34.
Is it too early for popcorn? It must be 8PM somewhere, right?
If I close my eyes, you can't see me.
I'm hiding behind this middle finger.
+1 If you had the ball, you could just take it home with you too!
LOL. Classic. They haven't advanced from pre-K.
I've seen this movie before and it ended like crap in March 2009. So is the sequel going to be any better?
I doubt it.
It depends upon the term "better" ... Can anyone name a single movie where the sequel was "better" than the original ... The more sequels in the original chain the more disastrous each becomes ... We are headed for the Abyss, which was a great movie with no sequel.
the empire strikes back? maybe...
And Return of The Jedi was by far the best movie of that trilogy. (And no, I don't even consider the 3 prequels as being Star Wars)
Well Hog, that was easy!
Debbie Does Dallas 2, 3 and 4, Debbie Does Dallas 99, Debbie Does Dallas:The Next Generation
I'm confident any SEC employee (excl. possibly Debbie) would agree with me on this one.
The entire Bourne Series.........
'God Father II' was a decent sequel...
+1 Good Fellas also!
Worth debating. Hudson's quotes in Aliens might give it the nod. But I just watched both back-to-back and the storyline and creepiness of the original is tough to beat.
Hudson, you mean the whining, lilly livered pussy that never stopped whinging all the way through the movie?
Talk about quitting at the first opportunity. Didn't look much like a steely eyed special killer to me; all wind and whining piss. Typical US Marine...
If you want a real quote look to the 'Jungle Book'.
I'm gone man... solid gone...
thats it man...game over man...game over!
The Star Trek whale movie.
Star Trek II, "The Wrath of Khan," surpassed Star Trek I
The six "Thin Man" movies were pretty decent.
return of the king
wrath of kahn
Mr. Moto movies and Road to Zanzibar.
Gotta love Nick and Nora. William Powell is hilarious and Myrna Loy is hot.
The Godfather II and Aliens were high quality sequels.
Evil Dead 2 was better than Evil Dead.
forgotten that movie existed
The Road Warrior tops Mad Max, without question. Thunderdome is another story....
All the HellRaisers are GOLDEN!
Now that was a superb film, but I'm not sure it was better than Godfather 1, which was itself excellent...
Fall of a Nation. Or as stated down thread... Debbie does Dallas 2,3,4, et all.
When do we get Rule 49?
Google "Wiemar Republic" and "Zimbabwe"
Rule 49 - Kicking
49.1 Kicking – The action of a player deliberately using his skate(s) with a kicking motion to propel the puck or to contact an opponent.
49.2 Goals - Kicking the puck shall be permitted in all zones. A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who uses a distinct kicking motion to propel the puck into the net. A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who kicks a puck that deflects into the net off any player, goalkeeper or official.
A puck that deflects into the net off an attacking player’s skate who does not use a distinct kicking motion is a legitimate goal. A puck that is directed into the net by an attacking player’s skate shall be a legitimate goal as long as no distinct kicking motion is evident. The following should clarify deflections following a kicked puck that enters the goal:
(i) A kicked puck that deflects off the body of any player of either team (including the goalkeeper) shall be ruled no goal.
(ii) A kicked puck that deflects off the stick of any player (excluding the goalkeeper’s stick) shall be ruled a good goal.
(iii) A goal will be allowed when an attacking player kicks the puck and the puck deflects off his own stick and then into the net.
A goal cannot be scored by an attacking player who kicks any equipment (stick, glove, helmet, etc.) at the puck, including kicking the blade of his own stick, causing the puck to cross the goal line.
49.3 Match Penalty – A match penalty shall be imposed on any player who kicks or attempts to kick another player.
Whether or not an injury occurs, the Referee will impose a five (5) minute time penalty under this rule.
49.4 Fines and Suspensions - There are no specified fines or suspensions for kicking and opponent, however, supplementary discipline can be applied by the Commissioner at his discretion
S&P to make announcement shortly on impact of downgrade on States & Munis
This reason alone is why I went short ES about 45 minute ago. It's easy to ramp ES futures, but when the market opens there are going to be a lot of people ready to sell.
I know of three aquaintances who, not knowing my interest in the market, said they were dumping the stock portions of their 401Ks over the weekend, taking effect today. The masses will be quicker to dump this time.
The only place to put that 401(k) is in physical Gold and Silver.
I was at a party Saturday afternoon. Nine adults including me. Not one mention of S&P downgrade, the Dow, debt ceiling. Nada.
Your handle fits the crime scene............wait till the Mkt opens, and see what the poor stock holders valuations are...........and they are getting screwed already, and are clueless about how much, and how many.
This is why I took away their control of MY money.
Ostrich sticks head in sand beacuse lion is bearing down on his ass,NOW he thinks he's safe.
Bout time for this.............................< http://www.321gold.com/mustread/spotgold500_grrrrrr.html >
Time to buy God and Silver
How much does your "GOD" cost? I could use one of those.
Execute Order 66 bitchez!
And Plan 9!!!
"Now young Skywalker...You will die!" <incessant cackling>
Order 66 was issued 2 weeks ago when Italy banks were targetted.
"Everything that has transpired, has been according to my plan. It was I who allowed the alliance to learn the location of shield generator..." <more cackling>
Have a good week all
Directive 10-289 ("Atlas Shrugged").
Since the link for NYSE yields nothing (due to massively overloaded servers?), here's another rundown on Rule 48:
It's gonna be a great day!
well that was less than useless. So basically they can halt trading in any sector at any time. Why not just say that.
***BANIA'S JOKE OF THE DAY***
Q: why did Milan Kundera sell his stocks when the market plunged?
A: because of the un"bear"able lightness of his portfolio
So basically rule 48 makes the stock exchange like "The price is right" and everyone just guesses what each stock is worth? lol
I bid $1!!
rule 48 = market makers may rape you on the open, sans condom
That means this rule has been in effect constantly since 1913 right? lol ;-)
They Will Never Change: Vote Them Out.....
Uh Oh... AIG Intends To Sue BAC?.....
CONgress and Obama: You Own This.....
OT: Hilarious Upside Down 2 minute video.....
Tis but a scratch.
Perfect Video to accompany your post...
Wow, yet another Blowhorn guest cheerleader. Some waterhead from Rosenblatt stating that he thinks that we are already at the market bottom.
I wonder what they will have to say in a few years if the federal debt is much higher and S&P issues another downgrade...
Its a great buying opportunity
Too funy by six.
I hereby and unilaterally invoke Rule 69....on my girlfriend.
How ya like them apples bitchez?
Go short, wait until 20 minutes after the open, cover shorts, go out for the day. Rinse repeat whenever ES futures are ramped on a day of clear panic. Barbarians at the Gate bitchez
Time to que "the deer in the headlights" ??
as the echoes in my head repeat... "General Jim must be coughing up blood".... and I LOL'd
Nah this won't crash. HFT won't allow it yet...
They are probably busy talking to their lawyers as the SEC is going after them now......
rule 48 sounds like one of the seven deadly sins. Thou shall not covet thy neighbour's wife, dog, doggy bag or stocks and shares. In that order of degraded importance.
Pop quiz, hotshot. Futures are down big pre-open. Once the futures are down -250, the bomb is armed. If it drops below -250, it blows up. What do you do? What do you do?
you hack the program and change the rules a la Captain Kirk, because losing is for suckers..
I think the algo rule is being invoked in the metals as we speak.
Remember this line From a 3rd grade report card aka progress report.
"does not obey rules and regulations"
one minute to opening. hold on to your hats!
look at all the knuckleheads clapping at the opening bell
The bread and circus monkeys, right on cue..
Rule 48 will be transcended by DEFCON 1.
DOW DOWN 309 at opening.
Queue up Tom Petty "Free Falling"
I'd give you a +1 for that, but I see they are gone.
Part of Rule 48 - "All thumbs/down reporting on ZH shall be turned off to assuage any further panic"
What is Rule 48? Can someone please explain?..thanks
Typical..I am sorry your wife weighs 500 pounds and she looks like a cow!
Good one. You got me.
How much does the fattest woman weigh?
Rule 43 in the UK is something to do with protecting sexual predators from severe beatings. I guess R48 is something further up from that ;)
I went to a brawl and a hockey game broke out!
Boy its interesting to watch those Algos at play. They are really pushing hard to keep everything above the 2% mark.
...it's hard to see in this black hole ...Bitchezzzzzzz. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0SqZBo3qQc&feature=related
who had the over under for 9:09am
and who in the pool had 9:09am for the pot?
Better luck next time if you didnt win, we expect this all week so no worries there are plenty of more chances coming up to win!
If the game quits working ...rig the game.
Oh Gawd, sorry to go all Leo on you all, but the PPF will not let this baby go nuclear today. Don't buy solar, but don't spend your life savings on hookers and booze either.
That is my last lucid moment of the day, gotta work on my cirrhosis, you know ;)
So very fitting.
Oh, if anyone happens to work in an exchange, has access to the PA and wants to lighten the mood:
Bloodhound Gang- Fire, water, burn.
beautiful head-and-shoulders on the /es, even more prevalent on the 5 minute chart. its a dozier, down to 1036
That's easy, The Godfather, Part 2
Rule 48 sounds equivalent to "fast market" in futures where floor brokers are able to match customer buys at the top of the range, sales at the bottom. Assign the transactions to your buddy's account, split the money later.
Surely Porky's 2 ????
& don't call me Shirley
I almost choked to DEATH on my sunflower seeds! That was funny! I got a visual of the " Blow Up" Co-Pilot in the Airplane Franchise!
Activate the Omega-13 device!
The even-numbered Star Trek movies in general, but, truly, how hard was it to beat Star Trek I? Way too 2001 Space Oddyssey and way too little "beam me up, Scotty!"
Witness the firepower of a fully operational battle station !
(Yes i know :) a awesome metaphore for those friggin central banks)
It takes away from the read when written slang vernacular is improperly used.
"Olé" is actually just a cheer in Spanish - "Ahhhhh, just like the good ole times." -
I think what you wanted was - "Ahhhhh, just like the good ol' times."
