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).

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.

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'.

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
