  • Why MannKind Is My 2014 Short Pick In Healthcare [View article]
    This article would appear more credible if the author could demonstrate that he understands the difference between hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, instead of cutting and pasting pseudofacts.

    "· Substantially lower risk of hyperglycemia"

    and

    "Finally, Mr. Mann preaches about how it's "impossible" for Afrezza to cause hypoglycemic events when used properly."

    Well, which is it? Do you understand the clinical science or what diabetes is?

    Did some more painting today. Bargain shares for the mud dweller.

    Wow. Radical mastectomy on the APC!

    What an elegant surgical approach. Thanks, APH, for excising the disease and leaving a healthy discussion alive.

    Steve Bay,

    With all due respect and in fairness, it is not JP's job to manage our expectations or assuage our anxiety about investing in a high risk R&D penny stock.

    He has provided a wealth of technical and legal expertise, as well as deep insight about the corporate philosophy as a former insider. For that I am grateful, as it has helped me to see the remarkable potential of this company. But I would not want him to change his consistent stance of professional boundary lines with respect to a former client and employer to become simply a cheerleader to entice investors.

    Ranma,

    What if that magic number of 72 volts for the chargers means the batteries are pre-assembled in already-charged groups of six, on trays that can be slid into the racks with a fork lift?

    That is 150 modular trays to install using power equipment and connect the final cables. Time saving design. Seems to me a more sensible way to build something heavy that will need periodic inspection and maintenance.

    I doubt the engineers and techs who designed and built this beast wanted to hand carry 900 batteries weighing 70# each up a stepladder into the tight confines of the new racking system.

    Just sayin.'

    Welcome Milo, but please understand that the chatter and banter is what keeps us Axionistas from tearing our hair out and selling in despair when we stare at our absurdly overweight positions in AXPW.

    Most here also contribute diligence in whatever capacity that we can. But we need to clown around a bit for sanity's sake. News is so sparse and we are so eager, it makes us chatter when we should be stoic and patient.

    Besides, this is social media, not Reuters or the WSJ.

    The Oldest Profession

    A surgeon, an architect, and a lawyer are having a heated
    barroom discussion concerning which of their professions is
    actually the oldest. The surgeon says, "Surgery is the
    oldest profession. God took a rib from Adam to create Eve,
    and you can't go back further than that."

    The architect says, "Hold on! In fact, God was the first
    architect when he created the world out of chaos in seven
    days, and you can't go back any further than THAT!"

    The lawyer puffs his cigar and says, "Gentlemen, gentlemen
    -- who do you think created the CHAOS?"

    I hope to meet the man one day and thank him in person. Perhaps at the next annual meeting, if it is scheduled when I can attend.

    Until then, thank you Mr. Averill for supporting the vision that we share.

    Mahatma Gandhi walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him (oh, man, this is so bad, it's good):

    A super-calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

  • Why the Plunge in Silver Is No Surprise and How to Play It Now [View article]
    This is illogical as an argument.

    You are saying don't buy silver because it is in a bubble, but here are silver stocks you should consider.

    "If you are still not convinced that silver has reached bubble-like valuations, take a look at the most popular articles for the past several days on Seeking Alpha. More often than not, silver is the subject in the top 5 most popular articles every day. You can see that here."

    And two of those articles are written by you. Is that the way you prove a point?

    "Look how many articles I've written about silver. That proves it's in a bubble. And by the way, buy these silver stocks."

    ngs,
    The DOE has discovered a new element: Obaminium. It's created in the beltway accelerator by slamming together one part hope with three parts hype.

    It's lighter than reality.

    Ed, I love your technical forays and share your political bent (yes, many think we're bent!). But do us a favor and give the feistiness a rest.

    Does anybody else find it odd that every one of the 19 comments by someone going by the moniker "PbC Believer" is critical and challenging either of John Petersen or Axion, or both?

    Mikejones (or bhanes, or whoever you are today)-

    If you can provide a credible explanation of how gelled LPG is "like putting a bomb down a well" then please do so. It is no more explosive than the petroleum that is pumped back out.

    If you cannot back up this nonsense with facts, you are cordially invited to crawl back under your bridge.
