I'll vote for Hugo.  At 100:1, he is retiring 20,889 tons of paper gold.  'Course, it's not really that hard, cause the paper really doesn't weigh anything at all.... I mean... compared to the real stuff.

Hugo will come out of his Chemo induced haze and realize what he has done when the ship's bill of lading indicates 20 tons of gold in crayola with gold flakes.


I wonder if the gold movement bumped the baltic dry any?

OK - so gold and silver are moving higher...but which should be moving faster?

Is silver underpriced relative to gold?

Sorry, I am going to have to give that one a negative score just on principle. Why would anyone even think of such a hideous thought?

Morgan Stanley borrowed $107.3 billion, the most of any bank, according to data compiled by Bloomberg News using information released in response to Freedom of Information Act requests, related court orders and an act of Congress.

...and a kick-ass interactive Bloomberg graph, here, until Tyler gets a post up.

EDIT:  My bad.  I now see this has already been posted on the prior page.  I blame jet lag.

Hey guys

Sorry to be such a N00b, but can anyone point me to a site that shows how much money was given to the banks, vs how much has been paid back?

Some idiots on another site are saying the banks have paid back all the trillions they "borrowed" and that the banks are now free of FED debt.

Thanks for the help- you guys rock!

Go check out Harvey Organ's latest entry. It shows the line-up for precious metals at Scotia's head office.

Thanks for that link, Harvey Organ is impressive, I just added his blog to my favorites.  Yet again another thing to thank Zerohedge for.

We had some young ones on my crew. We got rid of him because he spoke of liking much older women.


There should be plenty down at the Rock to break him in.


Some things are a crime ... a thought crime even.

When I was a kid (10-15,16) , I used to work for a farmer whose wife bore an uncanny resemblance to Merkel.  Picked rock, cut/raked/baled hay, cut stacked firewood etc..  Every day I worked, I was fed dinner and supper.  One day, when I was 13 or so, at supper, the farmer caught me taking a bit too long of a look at his wife's chest.  He looked at me, winked and said quietly, "They're just like the starter button on a 53 Ford."

Her set ain't all bad.

I ran milk route, Boss's daughter was there. All I could do to keep my wits about me on the job. I know if we carried through, I will not be here. I would still be on the farm throwing down supplies.

The best part was when the SS captain's eyebrow raised up when he was told what he was guarding for the "fatherland".


There is something to be said for personal but mutual interests ;-)

Re: Mutual interest: Yes there is....

One of my favorite movies.... one problem, the amount of gold never jived with value assuming $35 / oz... similarly in The G,B & U, th number of bags never make sense, $200,000 would have be ~10,000 coins, each bag would have weighed ~100 lbs.. (there were 8 bags IIRC)

kelly's heroes is another hollywood whitewash job.

"The Communists blew a bridge, and forced a German Gold convoy to detour through Oradour sur Glane. They ambushed, and destroyed, the entire unit of 120 Germans, but had a town 0f 642 witnesses. They executed all the men, and herded the women and children in a church, using a bomb. The entire village (photos) was destroyed. London ordered a bombing attack, after the ambush.'
