    Wow a busy day for quakes around the globe but none, nada, nothing in Alaska. Very strange. Maybe they are either off line or pressure is building.

    Picked up a couple hundred oz's of silver. This is an unusual event for it to be dropping at the end of summer. It must be manipulation. Never seen that before. /s

    I think I'll be paying closer attention to NEM, GDX, GDXJ, SLW, SWC and GPL of course. At least through end of year.

    NEM dividend is 3.75%. Precious metals can pay a dividend.

    Rattie, I feel like humpty dumpty. What glue was that. I'll take a gallon. I feel about 50% better but feel like at any moment......

    I am waiting for my next epidural. The surgeon wants to wait 13-16 weeks after my second set of shots to see if the disc shrinks back out of the channel where it has bulged into pinching the nerve stem. The MRI looked horrible.

    I decided to keep growing the beard that I got over the last month because it's very gray. Maybe looking at that every morning will convince my youthful mind that "Nooooo, your body is not 25 any more!!"

    I forgot to mention Fuji was a 2 day excursion. We were on a Japanese tour that was half filled with Americans from the base on it. You hike up to and spend the night at station 8 first day and they wake you up around 2 in the morning to make the final ascent to be on top for the sun rise. When we left station 8 it was raining. I was with 2 Marine friends at the time and along about station 10 (when the rain changed to heavy sleet) I began to notice fragments of yellow material (poncho as we later found out) on the ground in front of me.

    By the time we made it to the very top in the blizzard all three of us had essentially a hood with a bib of poncho left. The rest of the ponchos got so cold they just froze and cracked apart. We looked really silly but in the dark no one could tell.

    We got them taken off before we ended up on TV. As we were at the Torii taking pictures and toasting with the beer we each brought in our back pack a local TV crew showed up and wanted to take a shot of us and speak to the Japanese girls with us. After our decent that night we were on the local news. The Japanese girls on the tour with us came running down to our room to get us to turn on the TV to the news channel.

    So I guess I have had my 15 minutes of fame.....in Japan, freezing my tail off on the top of Mt Fuji. Should have brought brandy was the thought running through my head at the time.

    For us the two morals of the story became "Do not buy cheap Japanese ponchos for use in very cold climates." and "Brandy is better than beer in cold climates."

    I made it to the top of Mount Fuji. That was enough for me. Just under 12,400 ft. We did not get the anticipated morning sun rise, it was snowing like hell. Did I mention cold. Very cold. 4th of July weekend.

    They say first week of Aug is the best. I have no intentions of finding out.

    The Japanese have a saying " A man is a fool that never climbs Mt. Fuji but a bigger fool does it twice."

    Since my decent I have always preferred the view of Mt Fuji from the bullet train, a plane, picture or a post card. Much easier to breath while enjoying the view.

    TB unless there is a potential increase in efficiency it will be very hard to justify that kind of R&D spending at this point. I fully agree that skepticism is quite warranted at this point.

    Silver and gold chips. I like those! Maybe some copper and brass chips should be included.

    Maya all of that margin will be the stuff that gets sold right away. Folks have to cover or it will be sold for them any way. Imagine how much stock that is and how it will effect the prices.

    Now try to imagine this....who is going to buy THAT stock when it pours into the market. Quickest way out is to jump out of the window and at 17,000 that's a lot of floors up for a window jump and its going to be an ugly descent.

    Its going to be uglier than old Marks mask.

    Problem is WHAT is the FED going to do. QE 4,5 and 6 or nothing.

    If you were near the base with friends I am sure their names would have had to have been Jack and Jim. hic*

    Remember that part about being irrational longer than we can be solvent......just remember that whilst being careful not to push ones luck. I think they would do the QE4 however to keep it from happening so you might have lots of time and many more QE's to invest in too!!!

    My head hurts trying to rationalize this thing.

    Maya, I agree with him.

    A fitting conversation from my favorite movie "Wind and the Lion" I ummmm.....well edited it just a teeny tiny bit.

    Capt. Jerome, USMC: It seems quite obvious, I would think, sir - we must seize the government and make our own negotiations.

    Gummere: [incredulous] Seize the government?

    Capt. Jerome, USMC: At BAYONET point!

    Gummere: [snidely; to Dreighton] Well, I certainly would like to see that old son-of-a-bitch at bayonet point, huh?

    [chuckles]

    Gummere: But it's ridiculous; it's outrageous, it's lunatic!

    Adm. Chadwick: Yes, isn't it though? I think Teddy should love it!

    Gummere: But, what about the French, the Germans - the British? Why we're in the shadow of Gibraltar!

    Adm. Chadwick: [slams his hand on table and stands up] DAMN THE LEGATIONS!

    Gummere: [uneasily] You realize, of course, that if we fail in even the slightest way, we'll all be killed?

    Adm. Chadwick: Yes, and the whole world will probably go to QE Four.

    Capt. Jerome, USMC: Gentlemen, if we fail and are killed, I certainly hope the world DOES go to QE Four!

    [raises glass as a toast]

    Adm. Chadwick: QE Four!

    Gummere: QE Four? Now THAT would be something to go out on...

    It was very clear, of course we have known each other since 2009 I would guess. One of the old time renegades. You were a lot uglier back then. LOL

    Only problem with this game of musical chairs is that there may be a very small number of chairs avail when the music starts. In other wards lots of sellers and no buyers. BIG plunge down right off the bat with trading stopped on many stocks. Of course I have been wrong for at least 2 years now......and counting.

    As they say the market can be irrational longer than we can remain liquid. The manipulation of this market has kept it afloat longer than I would have ever guessed. At this point it seems to me it is all about confidence not fundamentals or financial expectations except todays expectations are that the manipulation will continue and confidence is high for the manipulation continuing.
