That's a shame, Slew. Gunslinger's posts were all over the place - kinda like a whirling dervish on acid.

Our Risk On/OFF Model has been sniffing recession triggering a risk-off trade 6/30 so we've missed the entire move down in SPY and are now +8% YTD vs negative SPY. We are opening up our weekly commentary to those on ZH emailing me at Just send me your email and I'll add you to our weekly market update with risk-on/off signals.  Got gold?

very self-effacing of you, saul, but we're starting to get a wee bit wise to people self-linking, here, and collecting e-mail addresses of the more moronic.  maybe they work for google, who knows?  "got gold?"  

nothing personal, maybe you're legit, but at this point, with your bullshit here and the "extra hook" to try for the link hit, who cares?

A strong case could be made that it actually is. 

Imagine if one day you woke up, fired up Zero Hedge and saw a "Farmville" link atop this site, between "donate" and "rss".  Worlds would be rocked!

For what it's worth slewie I would water the crops on your farm out of respect and water Max Keiser's crops for irony's sake.

Maybe Zero Hedge can partner with Zynga to come up with some kind of solution to the junks, reds/greenies thing?

--"a strong case could be made that it actually is." No this case cannot be made. Apparently my diagnosis was correct, you learned to read, but it didn't help.

You don't have to because everyone on this post did and now they get the idea.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you weren't breastfed as a baby... Don't tell me, I know the odds are great just reading how everyone reacts to you.

And the number of posts you place on ZH and the time you've been on here won't get you laid either.

Did you ever screw that one up.  The punch line is, "No, but I've been blown ashore".

Not to be confused with, "Get off Dad, you're crushin' my smokes".

Federal recipients of campaign contributions ensure we the people taxpayers absorb their losses.

Sounds like a new kind of Rum.

Makes you feel punch drunk after a single shot.  Blabber on for hours about the devil and earthquakes.  Then right before you blackout, you get the uncontrollable urge to have anal intercourse with sheep in a pile of FRN's.

fuking jamie is opening branches all over cali and all over the country, too, from a bit 0'sign i have read here, doctor.  they owe slewie $125 after sending me a coupon.  when i went in, i opened an account.  when i wondered why the $125 wasn't in it, the person to whom i spoke (b/c my "personal banker" w/whom i had signed up) was busy opening coupon accounts) told me "next week"... which point the third person told me that the $125 would not come to me for...six months and would i like a copy of the printout?  i responded no thank you, i had my file.  i spoke with my dad later and told him that over @ the morgue people probably thought i couldn't understand the terms of my checking acct but that it was so funny, that i just couldn't get mad about it! 

i had done this a year or two ago for $100.  then they changed the terms of the account from "free" to "expensive" without this here certain amt of minimal activity, right here in this letter we sent you in a plain vanilla #10 envelope like they send debit card in, ya know?, which many people might not even open, much less read, with 2.5 diopter glasses and a magnifying glass (v. small print boilerplate) where the relevant info was down in abt para #5

so, i took my $1 outa the morgue and got a genuine FRN, instead!

now, i have this great new situ, where my 00-riginal $100 to-open bet now = $1  aka "the slewie dollar in the fuking morgue" again.

this timer when i talked to the nice lady who offered me the print-out, i also asked her if they had any record of the letter i had received in a plain vanilla #10 envelope like they send the debit cards in right after i had opened the account.  what did the letter say?  please!  just look in the computer to see if there is any record of the letter.  no.  thank you for you help & good-bye.

when i fanally got ahold my "personal banker" [b/c he was so busy w/all the fuking coupons? and i do not leave personal info w/ banks where i blocked caller ID before i dialed; so he didn't know...?] he reckoned i had understood him correctly, but they change the damned coupons so often...

i like the kid, so i told him it didn't matter.  wtf, who cares?  he's a kid.  and that's my bottom line;  it ain't changin.  i asked him if he been taught the law of agency yet, in his MBA work or undergrad.  it seemed not.  when i started to explain it to him, he made a serious mistake:  he interrupted me & tried to cut me off.   maybe he had a coupon to redeem, i don't know.  at which point he heard "slewie & thelaw of agency" @ hi-decibels and everone w/in 4 blocks of my screened window also knows the law of agency, too, now! 

but, he understood what i wanted him to and what i considered the rules to be, when he represented me to the people who have my $125, which i'm not sure he's gotten to, yet.  you know how kids are!

so then i asked him if there were any computer record of the letter &tc.  what did the letter say, slewie?   just answer my question, PLEASE.  nope. 

the letter, i said, informed me that if i made a deposit, that the bank might limit me to $200 withdrawal, the next day.  oh, well, that's if such and such and of course with cash, never, and blahblahblah.

that's not what the letter says.  rinse, repeat X3.  me:  look, man, the way the shit is hitting the fans, anything could be "the way it is" in a week. 

no, shit, slewie!  i hear that!!!

so much for jamie; you have a nice evening, bro-brat
