I live in SF and had to call or check the website after 4:30 PM everyday, Sunday-Thursday evening of one week. The court never gave me directions to report, so now I've fulfilled my duty for one calendar year. ...

[quote]That's my point about 9/11. It would be much more believable if trillions in profit didn't depend on me believing it.[/quote]
The Bush administration garnered a ton of political capital on 9/11; his presidency appeared to be a lame duck less than a year in. I'll also say that my girlfrien...

[quote]Right. If this were some vast conspiracy, the government picked the worst possible way to pull it off. Simply stacking highly flammable explosives in the bottom three floors and claiming a delivery truck(s) did it would have been much easier to pull off. Wouldn't need nearly the amount of peo...

Credit crunches tend to lead to deflationary pressures. When the money market freezes up, businesses have a hard time meeting a lot of short-term obligations. Furthermore the dollar strengthened due to a flight to quality.
If the speculators long on crude oil made out like bandits, then the sp...

[quote]Now, if we would have simply occupied the New Iraq for as long as it took to take a trillion dollars worth of their oil for our own gas tanks, then, YES, Saddam had to go.[/quote]
How much of their oil did we get? Oh right, Chinese and Russian oil countries got the contracts. And as for t...

[quote]Part of Hitler's argument against Jews blamed them for the economic plight of Germany at the time, but stating that class warfare has been a constant as a reason for the persecution of Jews is a bit of a stretch. [/quote]

The spot price for oil is currently $92.64 and is expected to drop to $87.14 in 2022. If you just know that oil is going to skyrocket in the future, then you should go long a crude oil contract and make a fortune. Each contract is 1000 barrels, so each dollar increase per contract equals $1000 for...

[quote]Ok. Then enlighten us as to what the OT can do about this or we'll just have the other professor explain that 4.00 a gallon is a bargain. My point is there's nothing we can do about it except pay it. Don't need to listen to someone explain to me its really a deal. Hell no it isnt.[/quote]

If you take inflation-adjusted prices into account, then 1998 was the cheapest year of oil prices since 1946. ...

Why haven't the natural gas companies figured out how to gouge their customers then? I'm surprised their shareholders haven't had an uprising against the executives over missing out on these potential windfall profits. ...

If this is in reference to Fournette's post-touchdown pose, then my problem is that I don't want us getting personal fouls called whenever we score. I'm pretty sure Patrick Peterson was flagged for his pose against WVU in 2010. ...

[quote]Yes, I think the RB's at LSU are taught to let the hole develop, then really turn on the jets. But as far as LF returning kicks, I have to agree with the opening post--I don't really like the idea of his doing this. LSU has lots of team speed & they will depend upon Leonard a lot to carry t...
