If you tour the Budweiser plant in Merrimack NH, they make a big deal pointing out the different wells they get their water from. the plant is on large lot. At the other end by the wells is the Merrimack sewerage treatment plan.
If you think Bud tastes like piss in New England, you are not...
I spent 40 years in the design of support processes/tools for computers for some of the largest computer companies in the world.
A couple of tidbits:
At the beginning of PC revolution in the early 80s, we used to put each PC through a test of running for 10-14 days straight. It was called a...
have had that unit for years.
Punches way above its class with a good blade installed.
Got a MS391 if any big oak wants to pick on the little guy.
That SOB throws chips/chunks that smack you good in the shin.
Be sure to use the Stihl oil. Comes out top of the heap in engine...
Interesting is most racers I see that have died are when they have grown too old to run hot laps on scoots and moved on to cars. Still have the balls to the walls fire in their belly.
Then you have to flat out crazies like the Isle of Mann TT. Lost 5 last year alone.
I got into sailboat...
I mistyped red lining and owe up to it.
Now as to the rest of your bunk:
Rep Frank was in charge of the house banking committee
He was the one who lowered the standards to the point Freddie and Fannie were buying mostly crap that never should have passed muster.
Here is a 2011 article...
Barney is just as dirty.
He led the fight to stop red lighting in inner cities.
Basically twisted banker arms to give inner cities folks mortgages.
Well except they could not afford them because they were low income inner city residents.
That rocket scientist (not!) W went to Congress not once...
Mighty simplistic statement.
Should I be listening to Jim Cramer and CNBC/Fox Financial flunkies with their list of Wall street whores pumping and dumping ?
You know, the ones who again will have Granny Janet on TV tomorrow saying all is well.
I track zero hedge along with over a dozen other...
signature bank just closed...
according to the article below, SVB did it by the book. Just just did not see rates ever going up and when they did rise, they were dead meat...
Closed door emergency meeting at the Fed Monday morning.
I am sure it must be nothing of importance. Maybe planning for upcoming Christmas party /s
No word where the Plunge Protection Team is this weekend, but based on 2008, my bet is the parking lot of the Eccles building in DC is filled this...
not ready to let the banks off so easy.
Yes the low interest bonds are going to kill them.
Just like they have been killing savers for 15 years.
If you were born prior to 1995, you have no clue of normal interest rates (~5%). Most millennials do not have this experience.
BUT.. the other side...
I bet there will be a lot of hastily planned BoD meetings going on at banks this weekend. Ditto hedge funds and other financial institutions as everyone examines their risks and the risks of their counter parties. Best pick up your pastry platters early before they get scooped up by these...
in the filming of Bullet, Steve McQueen drove his own stunts.
Remember that mustang coming down the hill in SF?
As they got to the bottom, the cameraman in the back said to McQueen
"Steve, you can cool it, we are outta film"
to which Steve replied "Been trying to for 3 blocks. No brakes..."
I saw him play a couple years ago with Lynyard Skynyard.
What is Freebird without him on the line?
As we left the concert two 7 foot drunks were dunking it out with their drunk old ladies on their shoulders tangling too. 3-4 cops could not make a dent on the idiots and were awaiting backup...
was at the motorcycle races at Louden NH in the 90s.
Some twit in a light plane with billboard lights on bottom of wings came flying over the camping area of the track hawking bikes for a a Boston Honda dealership.
about the 3rd pass, several flares were shot directly at the plane.
the majority of f150 issues are on ICE units. The eco boost 4 and 6 both have MAJOR issues with the heads, turbos, and head gaskets that cannot take the pressures (these motors are wound up for all that crazy power). They let go slowly putting water into the sump thereby wiping the bearings...
