    In my opinion? What a load of shit.

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123879381940987845.html

    I understand the premise etc but come on?
    Dont know about any of you but for me? When it comes to investing and risk?
    I long ago "unlearned" any genetic influences.
    I learned new criteria. and ways to think...not respond via some hocus pocus theory.
    The same way...I suppose I learned to not respond to any genetic
    instinct to whack anyone I dont like with a 36" Louisville Slugger.

    No genetic code tells me or determines how I evaluate an immediate return
    via a future return. Silly me: I use a present value table.

Now from Binghamton:
    One receptionist was killed, while the other, shot in the abdomen, pretended to be dead and then crawled under a desk and called 911, he said.
    Police said they arrived within two minutes...

    Police heard no gunfire after they arrived but waited for about an hour before entering the building to make sure it was safe for officers.
    What's the point of calling 911 if they arrive within two minutes and then sit outside for the rest of the day to "make sure it's safe"?
    At the Dawson College shooting in Montreal a couple of years ago, a couple of officers happened on the scene to investigate an unrelated drugs incident, called for back-up, entered the building with guns drawn, and shot the shooter - all in three minutes.
    If you ever have to call 911, it may be worth requesting that kind of service rather than the world's most heavily armed and lavished equipped yellow-tape installers.
    That's precisely why when at home I opt for the "Do it yoursefl and save" method. Then, all the overburdened police need do is send someone out to pick up the body, write up the report and a dispatch a good cleaning crew.

    I'll take care of the threat myself.......I just hate those nasty prolonged response times.

    Re: Rolleyes News of The Day

    This sort of thing still cracks me up. Same with wine experts.
    They live in a world with a really special vocabulary and a really insulated
    worldview. Who writes let alone thinks like this?

    "At our recent lunch, we followed the seafood platter with two substantial dishes, each more or less traditional, but built on ingredients of rarefied pedigree. A risotto with tender bay scallops was a sweet breath of the sea wafting through rice. The bison special with foie gras was tender but big-shouldered. Still, if we had been looking for artistically plated food, we would have been disappointed by the homespun presentations of these dishes. The risotto, in particular, had a, shall we say, unstudied look about it."

    The guy is going on and on about The Four Seasons in NYC.^^

    ^^^
    On one large round plate...
    One large New York strip steak rubbed in cracked pepper, cooked medium rare on the grill.
    One big potato baked on the grill and cut in half with lots of butter.
    One corn on the cob steamed.
    Two or three bottles of beer.
    Followed by a big piece of apple pie.

    When someone can improve on that, we'll talk.

    Again the Chinese Drywall caper....which as I understand has also found its
    way as far north as NC.

    You can read how complicated the "responsibility" issue actually has become.

    Also it suggests the same old issue: Lack of regulation or a regulator
    not being proactive.
    I could make a reasonable case that the regulations were in place
    but thats not how government people do business.

    Why arent ALL products imported from China routinely tested?

    Jim! You have no appreciation for the finer things in life and don't have a clue as how to really make money! This is a masterpiece in culinary swindle that your uncultured and barbaric sense can't possibly find value in.
