    Are all ex-physists brilliantly cool or just Musk????

    I once thought Bezos was an unrealistic nut, saying something about he would surpass Walmart. Maybe not so much.

    Deja Vu.

    “If you don’t watch the media on Iraq you are uninformed, if you watch the media on Iraq you are misinformed.”

    Maliki is being treated like Diem. Unlike Diem, who was small minority Catholic, Maliki is of the majority religion. As Maliki is called not inclusive his invitees would make Iraq a faiiled Islamo-state like Libya.

    US meddling will make Iraq a Libya………….

    1963 all over again.

    A good and depressing argument on the current Colorado River allocations. I knew a bunch of what was in it, but didn’t realize that about 10% of the current use of the Colorado River flow is for crops that get shipped to China. That is one way to get rid of suburbs in Arizona.

    BTW – they only came up with 17 reasons not to trust Dick Cheney? They must have been heavily edited for space constraints.

    That hand-scribbled note from God in the background radiation is throwing off their results.

    If the courts rule that the statute of limitations has expired on the Pimco and Blackrock lawsuit, would there be an avenue for the mutual fund shareholders to sue Pimco and Blackrock for not adequately protecting their shareholders? It appears that Pimco and Blackrock draqged their feet on initiating legal action.

    Boomerang Kids: While working in Germany in late 60′s, my German associates were living with their parents. The style was they lived on the second floor (married and children) and the parents on first floor. When parents died they moved downstairs and expected their children to live upstairs when they ‘left the home’. Mortgages were minimal? We had a home in US, but family loans made ownership possible. The big difference was no student loans to carry as we had both worked in college and went to night school. Looking at the 14, we both had employable jobs (Engineer and public school Teacher).
