Greetings From Romania

I must make this note brief, for there is much work to be done.

I’ll have you know, I have successfully convinced the impoverished townspeople here to put their “low-end” life savings into MVIS shares.

I told them “you will be able to feed your goats gold” by investing in this company.

Being that I do not have access to a computer, I have no idea where it is trading. If it is higher today, send your greetings to Romania.

Without having access to any sort of 21st century technology, it’s hard for me to make market calls. However, I can tell you the people here think the subprime shit is comedic.

When I tell them how much money our bankers are losing, they throw mashed potatoes at me (here, throwing potatoes is a term of endearment).

In short, I need to get out of this shit hole. They do not have rib-eyes, rich man’s whiskey or high speed internet access.

WTF?

Developing….

    My travel agent says that beer-battered goats ribs with beet sauce is about as fancy a meal as you’ll get over there.

    I also hear their women’s Olympic weightlifting team won “Best of Balkan Class”.

    Last time I was in Romania, they made us wait on the border for 8 hours, after which they strip- and cavity-searched us to make sure we weren’t smuggling out any of their precious native pottery. So I wouldn’t worry about high speed internet, just worry about people sticking things into your ‘subprime’.

    That’s it, now your shit is on the List of the Romanian Secret Police.

    Watch our for seedy looking Slavs wearing grey trenchcoats, bearskin hats and bushy handlebar moustaches.

    Fly, make up your losses by turning your position around and shorting VMW. It’s going to be a penny stock now that Dell, Oracle, and Microsoft are all in the game.

    Jake–I am fairly confident that the Fly can arrange to have those bushy handlebar moustaches punched off when they come for him at his Romanian hideout.

    Rumor has it the Fly is “setting up shop” and planning on “raking Romanian coin” into private underground vaults beneath the bourse, in lieu of “banking coin”, which is an irrelevant term over there, since all Romanian banks are essentially “bankrupt” and depend on state assistance.

    Speaking of bankrupt Romanians… here’s a rather lengthy, if important, essay by Clyde the Glide suitable for the reasonably attention deficit disordered.

    Jake–

    Clyde is over 47 1/2. I don’t think anyone here will pay attention to his wisdom. They’re too busy trying to find momo stocks and opining over MaVIS.

    Jake,

    Thanks for the link to Hamzei. I wondered what became of Steve Shobin. He was at Mutha Merrill when I started out in the mid-80’s. Lost track.

    Beware of the man with the television stuck to him. He may ask you to marry him:

    Lohan learns to be a human magnet


    Lindsay Lohan is taking magnetism lessons to learn how to lift metallic objects with her mind.

    The actress met Romanian Aurel Raileanu on Facebook and plans to fly him to LA to teach her to make objects stick to her body.

    Raileanu, a 40-year-old hospital worker, recently broke the Guinness World Record for the most powerful human magnet after lifting a 50 pound television.

    Lohan said: “I’ve always been interested in off-the-wall abilities. And this is a really interesting phenomenon. I’d love to find out more about it and try to pinpoint what causes these supernatural abilities.”

    Raileanu told the Daily Star: “I tend to keep [my ability] a secret from people where I live, because I am afraid of being branded a freak in their eyes.”

    He added that he was single, saying: “The last serious relationship I had was four years ago. I would very much like to get married.”

    I couldn’t understand some parts of this article Greetings From Romania, but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.
