This Time Is No Different - Reflections On 1929 Optimism

Tyler Durden's picture




 

When it comes to markets, the following clip, as well as memories of recent market collapses, highlights that it is usually brightest just before it's pitch black.

..."As the market floundered financial leaders were as optimistic as ever...more so"...

Jesus H. Christ, I get the Citibank ad banner at the top and the ATT banner on the sidebar.

No goddamn Obama ad for me.

This is one of MDB's best uber-sarc posts ever. Mayhem, if you only knew how cosmically ridiculous you look for explaining his joke, you'd never post here again.

If you think I'm that naive, then the joke is on you.  We all know MDB is an insider like Robo.  I just can't help but flame it a bit when he throws out these softballs. 

All the same, I'm glad to know yer lookin' out for my rep, dood (/sarc).

The ads on my page are from credit score companies, a local lawyer 100 miles away, and Zurich Gold.  Yikes

You guys get different adverts than I.  All I get are ads for prostitutes, Asian babes, Russian love, etc.  I never got an Obama ad, or a GS ad, or McDs.  It is just straight on hookers all the time on the margins of ZH for me.

Seems that Obama should also be in your group of ads given that he's also a prostitute.  The others?  Pimps...

I didn't realize people were really this retarded.  But I guess they are.  What a muppet.

My advertising is almost all APMEX. Hmmm, wonder why.

I admit that I have frequently browsed for Obama campaign donations and Goldman Sachs brokerage services. But I have NEVER looked at McDonalds franchising or Forever Lazys. That is just a LIE.

Nobody cares about the ads, besides, they only show the ads based on your preferences through your cookies.

The ads they show to me have text in cyrillic letters, should i object to it as well?

"they only show the ads based on your preferences through your cookies."

And if NO cookies?

I flush everything, yet I DO see shit that I have ZERO connection to.  Just getting some ad now for watches!  I don't own a fucking watch, nor do I wear them!  Worse is that I DO see Obama ads from time to time: didn't vote for the clown, never would (don't vote for ANYONE!); and, I don't mess around in any political sites (closest is here).

It's like this, adverts are based on a basic profiling of the people here.  I listen to radio stations (no cookies here!) that push diamonds and expensive vehicles, stuff that I have ZERO interest in- ALL based on reader/listener marketing profiling.  I know that clicking on shit would help ZH, but I struggle with engaging in hypocrisy.

MD Baby:

I have no idea what you are talking about. All I see are ads for diesel pickups, ammo, whiskey, and dates with women that look like my hot wife.

Oh, and gold.

Hey, "MillionDollarBonus_"...Don't you know, it' the content of the post, that matters?

Most, tune into "super bowl" for advertisement!

Ad's are paying the bills, to keep us informed by none other than...MY MAIN MAN!!

Poetic justice. Proves how desperate these companies are to reach intellectual leaders. Forget academe, they have been sucking up to the elites for so long; they have lost the capability to know if something is true or false, right or wrong.

"they have lost the capability to know if something is true or false, right or wrong."

Ah... no, "they" DEFINE what is right and what is wrong.  And this is the REAL problem: those that attempt to impose their views on others, as this is primarily done for the sake of control of others.

I mostly get Gold and Silver ads. Gee wiz how much of this stuff do I need to buy before these guys will leave me alone :)

Cookie 101 my friend, where your cookies are there your heart will be.

With any luck the cookie algos will be giving me more of the Sugar Daddy ads as the fiat explosion really gets going due to all my Gold and Silver cookies.

In sum you can have Obama & Goldman Sachs, I’ll take Gold & Girls over them any day of the week.

I was getting ammo stuff not that long ago but they cannot sell ammo fast enough.  They don't need to advertise.

Now I am getting Eurail passes.  Who can afford Europe anymore?  Even the Europeans cannot afford it.
