    Spock's Emotional Outburst!

    Kirk: Uh, Mr. Spock.

    Spock: Captain.

    Kirk: There's really something I don't understand about all this, and maybe you can explain it to me--logically, of course. When you jettisoned the fuel and you ignited it, you knew that there was virtually no chance of it being seen, and yet you did it anyhow. Now, that seems to me to be an act of desperation.

    Spock: Quite correct, Captain.

    Kirk: Now... we all know, and I'm sure the doctor would agree with me, desperation is a highly emotional state of mind. How does your well-known logic explain that?


    Spock: Quite simply, Captain. I examined the problem from all angles, and it was plainly hopeless. Logic informed me that under the circumstances, the only possible action would have to be one of desperation. Logical decision, logically arived at.

    Kirk: Aha-ha. I see. You mean you reasoned that it was time for an emotional outburst?

    Spock: Well, I... wouldn't put it in exactly those terms, Captain, but... those are essentially the facts.

    Kirk: You're not going to admit that for the first time in your life you committed a purely human, emotional act?

    Spock: No, sir.

    Kirk: Mr. Spock, you're a stubborn man.

    Spock: Yes, sir.

    The good news is the pace of rig count decline is slowing.

    We can still hope for energy independence.

    Mining may not be having a problem getting financing. 3 buyouts so far.

    Ediot: should have said productive mines. Buyouts was 14 not 3.

    "one went as far as to say the entire world production was being bought by the Chinese! I kid you not."

    WT, Below, I think this is an example of someone stating that china gold demand exceeded global production but in this case its only a 5 week period and is in relation to the Chinese new year coming up. This will probably be posted somewhere as "China Gold Demand exceeds Global Production". n

    I might add I have fallen for the headlines myself before.

    Thus so far, in the first five weeks of the year, there has been a total of 315 tonnes of gold withdrawn from the exchange. This figure is, on its own, comfortably in excess of total global newly mined gold, which is a little less than 300 tonnes over the same period based on the latest GFMS and World Gold Council (WGC) annual new mined gold statistics. See the WGC’s latest Gold Demand Trends report.

    This might interest you then. Not so positive spin on FireEye.

    For those that might take an interest in Iraqs battle against ISIS here is a site that you can get a lot of info on the goings on over there. Accuracy....don't know but then we have Brian Williams so who can complain.

    The town near our Marines over there is just about been cleaned out of ISIS. Just not hearing that here.

    The currents changed. Had the sea rose it would have effected everyone.

    So our resident rattie smells a rat. I have to agree something does not make a damn bit of sense. So an agreement to bail out with some breathing room for both parties goes beyond plausible and is approaching probable. Why else the sudden and complete folding of the Greek position.

    One caveat however. We are dealing with politicians.

    This currency war reminds me of Wiley Coyote falling off a cliff climbing on top of the bolder falling with him then being spun upside down. Replace that scene with a dollar sign, euro sing and yen sign and they all are climbing up on each other as they fall from the cliff.

    Its the sudden stop at the bottom they should be worried about. The static snap shot of being on top or bottom means nothing.

    Rattie, the kracken is still roaming the streets of Greece and it may be looking for Tsipras & Co.


    He may not have been flushed very far.
