Weekend Open Thread



I guess I'm feeling kind of dark. Darkish?

Anyway, here's another chance for you to show your wit with a Wise and Otherwise quotation.

Finish the following:

There's an old Slovakian saying:
If you win put away, if you lose...


If you fool can guess the saying that is closest to the correct saying you... win... 3... billion... dollars! That's right. We'll be choosing the winner Sunday night. Enter as many times as you wish, no purchase necessary.

Also, I'll update this thread throughout the weekend with interesting links. If you think you said or thought something that was interesting this week, feel free to leave a link in the comments section.

1. First of all, there was my Peanut Gallery submission... hopefully you didn't miss that. Go give it 5 stars even if you don't like it.

2. A great post from Dr. Brett about "questionable things" he hears from traders.

3. "The Rage" has a nice post on the Golden Cross. Not to be confused with the Golden Shower, the DIrty Sanchez or the Watusi.

Nice!

I guess I'll enter a submission as well, just for fun. I can't win the 3 billion... it's against my own rules.

If you win put away, if you lose Ragin Cajun's blog is gay.

Subliminal, no?

DINO you remind me of an old friend with your funny comments.

I would like to buy puts on this contest in the event that there is no winner,,,,Also, I'm buying puts because I believe the contest money is backed by subprime loans, and even if there is a winner, the contest funds won't be delivered, resulting in a win/win situation for me.

To make it a win/win/win scenario for me, I've talked to one of the heads for Goldman Sachs and he has suggested for me to make an entry into the contest due to the fact that the FED is likely to CUT interest rates and bail out DINO and company in the event that there is a winner for the contest even tho the subprime backing has defaulted.

So my guess is-
There's an old Slovakian saying:
If you win put away, if you lose... kill the opponent and walk away.

(or have Bernanke order a couple thousand helicopters to bail you out)

PS- DON'T WATCH THE MOVIE "HAIR SPRAY",,,you will go blind if you do and your penis will fall off, and if you don't have a penis, then you will probably wake up with one the next day that looks like John Travolta dressed in drag, and then you will probably kill yourself.

.good day........

How about this.

I win, put away your blog. You lose because you are gay.

HPT,

3 billion cash... no subprime exposure. I've taken it all off my balance sheet therefore it doesn't exist.

Rage,

I just linked you. That makes my blog slightly "gayer" than it was previously. Then, I look and see AGs avatar and the "gayness" level shot right through the roof.

AG, is the avatar ironic? If so, it may be my favorite avatar of all time.

DT, in other news, my prop account was opened late Friday. Lets hope I don't blow myself up on Monday. If I do I will donate my domain name to you. Then, your blog will be gay-free.

Note:I'm sending you an email.

Dinosaur Trader said...

Good news, Ragin.

Take it easy on Monday for sure.

Dinosaur Trader said...

I have lost the card with this particular saying... meaning I cannot award the $3 billion prize.

My sincere apologies.

HPT said...

Looks like I'll be cashing in those puts then. I knew DINO and company would default.
