Weekend Open Thread

Go ahead, share something.

Tell us about what a stud you were in high school. Your wife is probably sick of hearing about it.

Ever save a life? Let's hear it.

Great stock pick? JJ? Now is your chance.

What earnings stocks will you be watching this week. Don't be shy.

Have at it.

I like UA too.

My Saints suck ass this year, and better win tomorrow.

College is over rated, and I wish I never attended.

Bubs said...

Could care less where individual stocks go.

Was heavily intoxicated last night, paying for it today

LSU will win the national championship only because they have no competition

Bears suck ass but so does the rest of the NFC

School is over rated but nothing beats the college experience

Maybe y'all have seen this one before but it's always good for a chuckle.

What Is Politics?

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"

Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,"

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."

The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."

The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep poo."

Nice, I hadn't seen that one, artha.

Oh, to have a nanny...

Not sure how old you guys are, but once I hit my 30s and had a kid, getting intoxicated lost it's allure. There is nothing worse than being hungover and having to play Candlyland.

However, Candyland can make a wonderful drinking game if you have the right crowd.

Meanwhile, I've had an odd day. Will not be sleeping at home tonight (unplanned). Tomorrow we'll be back on home turf but busy with plans.

Will post interesting earnings stocks tomorrow night. Not interesting in like, I think they're headed one way or the other, but interesting like, they'll MOVE. Hopefully a list good for daytraders.

Anyway, not my computer. Gone for now. Carry on.


p.s. mdawsz, will turn off word verification... didn't know it was on.

p.s.s. R.C, I'll take third tier as a compliment. You have Minyanville links, I get Buzzfeed...

MIsstrade said...

Go Wildcats, Michigan sitting on top of the Big Ten with OSU. Go Blue!!

High Probability Trader said...

College sucks, except for the chicks, a good reason to be an old perverted teacher.

I like artha's politic joke, heard it before but forgot about it.

DO people even go to baseball games anymore, that seems like the lamest sport.

Don't forget the 20yr anniversary of black monday this next monday..YEPPEE!!

How many think were going to selloff on Monday. I predict a down day with a multiple of 2 (-2,-20,-200,-2000).

Blockbuster is going to go bankrupt along with all the other movie rental places.

OfficeMax sucks too.

Gold is going up forever.

Goldman sachs will soon rule the world.

Why do so many people frequent THE FLY?

I hate word verification,,2nd time on this piece...

Ragin' Cajun said...

I am intoxicated, is it odd that I still check in on the financial word?

Odd, no?


Word verification sucks balls. It's still on.

turn that shit off.

Ragin' Cajun said...

Note: I lost a lot on LSU!

Dinosaur Trader said...

Word verification is now off. Should robots start commenting on my blog, ruining it in the same way they have begun to ruin the NYSE, I will turn it back on.

Enjoy your new freedoms.


Bubs said...

Devin Hester is the best player in football.

Another shameless plug:

Ragin' Cajun said...

Adrian Peterson is a BEAST!

Bluedog said...

I just ate a giant carne asada burrito and am finishing a Stone Pale Ale. Food coma is coming on strong. Resistance... is... futile...


Bubs said...

A woman is looking in the mirror one morning and she says to her husband “I’m fat and ugly. I’ve got bags under my eyes and my boobs are sagging. Compliment me.”

He replies “Well, your eyesight’s perfect.”

Final Shameless plug:

Ragin' Cajun said...


you need a roommate? I need to move to a big city.

TraderCaddy said...

I ate at a Shanes Rib Shack yesterday because Jake from Fly's blog recommended them. It sucked. The ribs tasted like they were cooked in an oven and the Carolina "vinager" sauce was sugar water.
I should remember only go to a Mom and Pop Que place and where the waitresses are fat, ugly and missing teeth. My first sign of trouble at Shanes was when the workers were all about 18 years old and I had to ask them to change the TV from some gossip crap on E to a football game.
Que needs to be smoked with hardwoods and not cooked like a pot roast.

Ragin' Cajun said...

Going to BWLD to watch the Saints victory.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Should have bought that "Fly" stock BWLD... that was a miss. Instead I bought XFML.

Long weekend. Sitting down now to do some earnings reseach. I'll put up a post a little later tonight or first thing tomorrow with some "movers" to watch for the week.

Thanks for keeping this thread alive this weekend. I had hoped to move it along now and then but the weekend was so nuts I never got around to it... but it didn't really need me!

Oh, check out Trader Bubs... :) There, I did it for you Bubs.


Dinosaur Trader said...

Some cool art to check out.


Bubs said...

Rajin I haven't had much luck finding a job in Chicago, but I've only been looking for part time jobs. I also just took the dive and moved back in with my parents.

Thanks for the plug DT, not sure why I didn't link it myself.

Patriots are going 16-0 and winning the Super Bowl.

Bubs said...

DT - I'm taking the thanks back, the link doesn't work.

Dinosaur Trader said...


Let's try again. But really, this is silly, as you're linked right there in the VO.

But I will say this, click on the dude's ads. So he can stop worrying about finding a job.


High Probability Trader said...

IF the market tanks to -200, let it be known that I called it before hand this weekend...MUHAHA!!!
