    Gunners: its all good I just like to shoot guns. By the way with a name like Gunners I would expect you to as well?

    After thought: Smith & Wesson makes trophy guns, real men don’t fuck around:

    actually, Gunners is because of my fav soccer team, Arsenal.

    I’ve only shot a gun once, I’m a terrible shot. It was a shotgun, and we were shooting clays. I got 1 out of 15. haha

    If I used a real weapon I would be replacing my windows every week. A couple of weeks ago the little bastards broke into my soffit vents and were running up and down in my soffit like it was a bowling alley.
    Maybe I should just keep blasting the RickRoll song to scare them away. The dried fox urine I bought doesn’t work.

    gappingandyapping, same weird shit’s happening to me… I’ll look up information on something I haven’t heard about in years, then within the next 8 hours, I’ll see that thing on TV, or someone will bring it up. I’ll play a game and then suddenly find someone talking about it. Everytime I do something, something related happens, everytime I think about one thing or go to say it, I find out someone else already did, or before I send something, someone else says basically the same thing it slightly different words.

    Is that some sort of preconscious physcological shit?

Weird fucking shit I tell you. Maybe everything will come together for me this week and commodities will shit the bed. I am heavy short these fuckers and living on the same thesis as Broker, these will be sources of funds.

    Actually, I was watching some history channel thing on how 2012 is “doomsday”, and they talked about how there’s some sort of “web bot”
    http://urbansurvival.com/simplebots.htm
    http://aphroditeastrology.com/2007/05/web-bot-predictions.html
    Aparantely some “universal consciousness” search engine that looks for keywords to determine subconsiously what stocks are going up or something, tells us what’s going to happen somehow.
    It predicted 9/11 although more of through connection, and it’s predicting 2012 doomsday.

    Anyways, maybe all that is just a “uniting” of the “universal consciousness” or some sort of evolution in consciousness.
    It’s like, you always have noticed those events every once in a few years where you go to call someone and the phone rings and it’s them, but it’s like it’s happening more and more often…
    It’s called either syncronicity or serendipity I think.

    gappingandyapping, that thing about texting your friend and seeing him is crazy….
    You know, I don’t want to suggest anything, but according to Gregg Bradden and his resources, “random” number generators, were actually significantly less random right before major, globally felt events, positive or negative, one of them being sept 11th, another during some major mass meditation day of some sort.
    Maybe somethings about to happen.

    The whole 2012 thing is said to have something to do with a radical change in human consciousness and not necessarily doom. It will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    People all over are “waking up” now which may explain why the topic is being discussed.

    I have had psychic premonitions throughout my life (sleeping and awake) like those described above.

    Just week I was driving to my office and had a random thought that it was strange that the “wonder cleaner” guys haven’t come by in four years. At 3PM he showed up.

    Back to picking stocks…

They asked me why I had a BB gun in my carry on and I told them I was going to Fly’s Double Platinum party in NYC. The TSA guy said cool and tell Fly “Hi”.

    Chivas:

    My year end target is 1625. I guess that’s a mini meltup.

    Earnings growth will suck until 4Q, so I’m expecting the marke to be driven by the massive liquidity unleashed by the FED and Congress which will cause multiple expansion. My biggest fear isn’t credit or financial collapse or any of the other shit everyone has been obsessed with for the past year. That’s been over-analyzed to death and the Big Swinging Dicks who pull the strings have decided they think they understand the worst case scenario and have concluded the worst is over and it’s ok to own stocks, IMO.

    What I’m concerned most about is that people start to worry that all the actions taken by FED and Congress to save the economy/markets will push inflation expectations higher and long rates will rise significantly. I think (hope) the economy will be weak enough to prevent inflationary expecations from building until ’09, but to me a sharp rise in long rates is the biggest risk that could stop the multiple expansion in its tracks.

    Pud,

    i agree and that’s also my concern, however, i hope and believe that the ongoing process of deleveraging will keep a lid on expectations and actual inflation, and will result in an economy expanding at potential. in addition, i believe that the productivity miracle of the past decade is not yet complete.
