  1. this thread is too funny. I'm off to watch http://www.thewebsiteisdown.com/ Q
  2. Another wonderful thread Tax is clearly theft. If you can't see it's theft, you must be part of the system supporting the theft. Inflation is big talk for theft. 1900. i have a banana. i eat it. i'm not hungry. 2009. I have a banana. i eat it. i'm not hungry. What else really matters? The Mob is usually pretty good at working out what is and isn't theft. infact, a 6 year old childs usually pretty good at it too. sucks to be you if you can't see this simplicity. Life's not hard you know . Oh, and we're decended from monkey's. Maybe thats why we like banana's so much Q
  3. You've been doing ok for the last 20 pages or so Just a thought. I worked for JPM for about 7 years. I thought I understood banking. I then came here. Now I understand banking. All the stuff from the BoE, the FED etc, it's all just impressive smoke and mirrors. Something I never really understood at the time. Life eh? Injin's right. Remove the currency/money from your statements and talk about real things. money after all just represents real things. Good luck Scepticus. I think you've just started a long jouney into a world you thought you knew but one that may just turn int
  4. afternoon off in the park? quiet cup a tea? be nice edit: spelling.
  5. I don't beleive in debt. There is 1 banana. Monkey 1 picks it up. Monkey 2 promises to give lots of banana's to monkey 1 if he can have that banana now. Monkey 1 agrees and gives monkey 2 his banana. monkey 2 eats monkey 1's banana. There are now no banana's. Monkey 2 is well fed. Monkey 1 dies of starvation. Sucks to be monkey 1. Monkey 1 Shouldn't have been stupid enough to give monkey 2 his banana. Reality Trumps Debt.
  6. I don't mind. everyone has their little quirks http://www.art-wallpaper.com/Wallpapers/Van+Gogh+Vincent He still saw the world the way he chose to.
  7. "If you have an objection to what I actually said be sure to let me know. This is not about me denying objective facts, in fact I'd say you were the one who regularly engages in that kind of behaviour." Never had any problems with any of Injins arguments for years. to my mind he just says it as it is. I guess it's a bit like VanGough though. No one realised he was a genius while he was still painting. Truth will out as they say
  8. thats a lot of assets to sell for a company with a market cap of £30B (at todays current price)...
  9. All that pain and all you have to say is that. geez. have you no heart? I for one am glad to hear urdur's thoughts. Urder, try posting to http://www.greenenergyinvestors.com/index.php there's alredy a very good iceland thread there you may be interested in. Regards Q.
  10. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai_International_Capital and other funds like them. they buy assets. Real and Tangible. Perhaps even that Shiney yellow stuff we don't talk about here.
  11. The last slide is wrong. It says the Mark eventually recovered. I always thought a new German Currancy was eventually issued, that just happend to have the same name as the old one... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_mark "The first Mark, known as the Goldmark, was introduced in 1873. With the outbreak of the World War I, the Mark was taken off the gold standard. The currency thus became known as the Papiermark, especially as high inflation, then hyperinflation occurred and the currency became exclusively made up of paper money. The Papiermark was replaced by the Rentenmark in late 1923
  12. http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/ind...showtopic=50411 a certain cgnao made a few observations... (along with a number of others)....
  13. I asked them a similar question back in 07. here's what they said then.... ************************************************************** Hello Questiondog, at it's simplest, fractional-reserve banking refers to the common banking practice of issuing more credit than the bank holds as reserves. Banks in modern economies typically loan their customers many times the sum of the credit reserves than they hold. However, this is strictly controlled by the banking regulators, in the UK the FSA, as are the credit risks associated with the lending. In other words, there are limits on how much bank
  14. how about the original land owners of new zealand or Australia? how about the origianl people who lived on the great plains of north america. what about the etruscans? what abuot the 10000 yearsof human history before the nation state was invented in the 1700's? thing about the anarchist societies, they all seem to get eaten up by vicious bastards with swords/guns....
  15. me too. just spent 5 mins looking on google for sources thinking it was my machine.. but it is just this site.
  16. “In the worlds before Monkey, primal chaos reigned. Heaven sought order, but the phoenix can fly only when it's feathers are grown. The four worlds formed again and yet again, As endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of Heaven, the moistures of the Earth,and the powers of the Sun and the Moon all worked upon a certain rock - old as creation, and it magically became fertile... Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch. From it then came a stone monkey... The nature of Monkey was irrepressible!
  17. <scaremongering> hyperinflation in hungary http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperinflation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarian_peng%C5%91 </scaremongering> edit to add Hungarian Pengo link
  18. I personally think inflation and deflation are two sides of the same coin, with deflation, there's a contraction of the money supply, currency becomes very scarce and everything falls in value but nobody has any money to buy anything with. with inflaction, there's an increase in the money supply, currency becomes very common and everyting rises in value but although rich nobody as enough money to buy anything with. end result of both, currency becomes worthless. In one, everything heads to a price of infinity, in the other everything heads to a price of 0. In both, the comman man can n
