    That is egregious indeed. A fitting, though somewhat morbid, tribute.

    What happened to Gunners?

    Oh, and Fly, someone (no doubt Woody) is playing a joke on you. They’ve inserted a book written by Jim “Egregious” Cramer in your “recommended” list.

    I’d pick everyone of you last in dodgeball. So Sorry.

    A Jewish congregation in suburban Boston honors its Rabbi for 25 years of service by sending him to Hawaii for a week, all expenses paid. When he walks into his hotel room, he finds a beautiful nude woman lying on the bed.
    She greets the Rabbi with, ‘Hi, Rabbi, I’m a little something extra that the President of the Temple arranged for you.’
    The Rabbi is incensed. He picks up the phone, calls the President of the Temple and shouts, ‘Greenblatt, what were you thinking? Where is your respect? I am the moral leader of our religious community! I am very angry with you and you have not heard the end of this.’
    Hearing this, the naked woman gets up and starts to get dressed. The Rabbi turns to her and asks, ‘Where are you going? ‘I’m not angry with you.

    If anyone hasn’t read them, “Market Wizards” and “New Market Wizards”, by Schwager, are a good expose into the minds of top traders.

    I read both books many years ago. There was a guy named Gil Blake in the Market Wizards book who did what I was doing in the ’80s concerning mutual fund trading. It was so easy then. Eventually (took them years) I got kicked out of Franklin,GT Global and Scudder for excessive trading.

    If gold can’t bounce at least $20.00 on this Iranian BS then it’s short at will.

    Fly was kind enough to post a vid of Wood “all cleaned up” for supper, when he usually does his “entertainin'” bit.

    Here’s one of Wood “preparing” supper. Be sure to check around the three minute mark where he mentions his dental history:

    Jake, fuck you.

    The market wizards books are on MY book list, so I get the commish.

    I have to say I’M PISSED AS A MOTHERFOCKER THAT I DUMPED MY DOWNSIDE HEDGES YESTERDAY!!!!

    However, at least I have my FXP, which is still in the money. Yes, that comment is for all of the FXP naysayers out there.

    Anyway, carry on.

    Market Wizards was a great book. I once tried to research on Google all of the traders mentioned in the book, sort of a “Where Are They Now?” follow up. Some of the traders I could not find mentioned anywhere. One has a small website where you can sign up for his newsletter for a monthly subscription fee.

    Jake, my wife is from Kentucky. I’m from S.C.

    My grandpa didn’t catch turtles by hand, but he would catch catfish by hand. Its called noodlin’.

    Make fun of me, but when armageddon hits, and you don’t have any rice to feed your brood, all the corn is burnt up trying to heat your home, you’ll come loooking for ole’ Woodshedder, so that you can survive….

    I will, too, Wood.

    There’s fuckloads of rich “gentlemen farmers” around here with emu farms. Some guy out “the Music Man” must have come by a couple of years back and dumped shitloads of those flightless fuckers on the unsuspecting gentry.

    So when the Black Swan comes, I’ll need you to teach me how to rassle the fuckers down for supper.

    Man, an emu farm could provide for several families. No need to rassle ’em, if you’re a good shot. We were always worried about missing their tiny little heads and shooting another bird, or worse, our trailers, or even ourselves. So rasslin’ to get them to point blank range became the SOPs.

    Go ahead, gentleman farmers, break out the fine China on your emus. I for one, prefer to grill what I kill, hunter-gatherer style. Nothing tops a good elk steak or antelope burger.

    I live off of game pretty much all year. Very healthy meat, that I process myself. It’s all about the peace of mind of knowing where your food comes from.

    If you haven’t done so, you need to go down to the local video store and check out “Fast Food Nation”. You will swear off of consuming MCD products. At least I did, a number of years ago.

    Burger King is egregious, so is Taco Bender Bell (non-racistly put). But the worst offender is Arby’s, which pushes the FDA’s tolerance for fecal matter. That’s right, you’re eating shit, and it’s tolerated to a point.

    Can anyone confirm or discredit whether this story on IMMR regarding AAPL is authentic, or just a pump and dump scam ?

    TraderCaddy: Why do you say gold is going to $800 ?

    I have had a target of $863 for quite some time now, and had good success with DZZ. But I do not see how this Iranian event can cause Gold to go down. Surely a war with Iraq takes it up, and the dollar down.
