Gee, today would not happen to be the who-cares-th year since probably-unrelated-to-what’s-happening-now happened, would it?
My, that would be a horribly repeatable statistic-with-no-bearing-on-the-present, wouldn’t it?
I’m sure if I were running some sort of column that I tried to get people to read, that would be a crutch of a subject I could lean against without putting much effort into, in order to avoid having to take the 15 minutes required for some strain of originality.
Why, I would probably look at the most recent string of bad data coming out of Europe/China/US/Planet Earth and try to correlate them too, sloppily of course. I would likely do so in complete ignorance to the point that bad data has been coming out of these places uninterrupted for three years and that this does not seem to be a turning point of any real consequence.
In fact, I would probably also have to pretend like the proposition that a major correction fed off a stream of the same crap we’ve had non-stop for three years could happen to coincide with the anniversary of another totally unassociated and major event – the only linkage seemingly being my lackluster and piss poor effort.
Especially with the futures off .2%.
Thank God nothing like that is happening today…
