    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

I would follow Tyler Durden to the gates of Hades! Even if gold collapses, I have learned a ton over the past few years here at ZH. Well worth the knowledge.

ZH - a blog, increasingly a media outlet (but not MSM), certainly an educational "institution", and a community of people who challenge conventional thinking - and call bulls--t on manipulated medicated market mavens and media pawns.

The bullshit calling here and internal fights over finance and economics . . . and geology, is typically excellent.  Everyone has learned how to skim over worthless thought after this long online, and that which is not worthless here gets read.

As long as it's short.

Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to find a way to get a CNBS reporter to say the words, "Zerohedge, bitchez."

Hey, I'm just happy to see that CNBC biatch having to say "Zerohedge", tacitly acknowledging its impact on the financial markets and FinNews reporting.  MSM can no longer ignore Tyler and the boyz.  ZH just keeps dishing up the truth and serving it hot.

Lately Bloomberg has been doing floor interviews, and several traders have mentioned ZH on those as well.

I think they (on Strategy Session) were referencing Reggie's article about the 100's of trillions in CDS exposure of U.S. banks in Europe (?).

Oh yeah, everything is solved, that is why the insolvent banks are still leveraged to the hilt after robbing taxpayers for the past 3 years.

Peanuts!  Popcorn!  Cotton Candy!

Look, the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances. We make guest appearances on CNBC and inseminate the mainstream media with the painful truth of how fucked we really are.

A wise credit trader named Tim

Spoke to CNBC on a whim

His truth had not changed

So they quickly arranged

A segment to discredit him

Exactly..  I'm thorougly amazed at the lack of journalistic integrity. I mean, it was bad 10 years ago.. but holy shit.. they tripled down on the white washing.. or is it brainwashing.. I'll go with both.

Thanks for that, kito.

I am always fascinated by restaurant industry numbers, usually track them diligently, and I didn't see that anywhere.

Restaurant #s are interesting to me because they are a relatively decent barometer of not only current consumer health, but future expectations.

Restaurants have been acting similarly to REITs in the sense that to the extent that we can discount the padding that CMBS buybacks and TARP/TALF by the Fed and Treasury have provided them, any genuine investment interest in these sectors is most certainly driven by (insane, IMO) expectations of anything remotely resembling a V-shaped recovery (good luck to those buying in to a v-shaped anything, and not an L shaped something, or more likely, a Z shaped one).

"Restaurant #s are interesting to me because they are a relatively decent barometer of not only current consumer health, but future expectations."

I ask taxicab drivers how their business is. They are a great forward indicator because discretionary spending on "simple luxuries" is the first to be affected ... months in advance of the overall economic numbers being published or known.
