  1. There is an interesting study on the color blue, that we didn't perceive it until fairly recently. https://www.sciencealert.com/humans-didn-t-see-the-colour-blue-until-modern-times-evidence-science
  2. Last minute push allows the overs to win. Congrats. House you want the money from my loss in cash, gold, or wired to your off shore account?
  3. Umm how is this a Democratic facepalm? You realize she didn't say that right?

  5. Avenue clothing stores are going out of business. They are owned by a private equity company, and the debt put onto it from the PE company forced it to close shop. Private equity companies do nothing but add millions if not billions of debt to companies, and eventually drive them out of business. All the while taking tens if not hundreds of millions in 'management fees'. They should not be allowed to put the debt from a takeover onto the company they took over. If not for all this debt companies would still be in business, would have had money to upgrade stores, keep up with the times. Fuck private equity companies. https://www.businessinsider.com/avenue-closing-stores-list-address-2019-8
  6. We tried to buy it in the mid 40's, for 100 million in gold bars. At the time we thought it was a military necessity. Not really sure about the reasoning behind it now.
  7. Under. Will be a positive day, but not a +288 day.
  8. Futures are up nicely so far. Let's see if it can keep it up.
  9. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/dow-transports-getting-dangerously-close-to-a-bearish-signal-2019-08-15?mod=mw_theo_homepage&mod=mw_theo_homepage DJT getting close to bearish signal.
  10. Market ended up +99.56. Unders take the day. Winner winner chicken dinner. But cheer up house, at least the 300pt rule didn't come into play today.
  11. Welp.
  12. Agreed.
  13. He has made it official. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/former-colorado-gov-hickenlooper-ends-presidential-bid-2019-08-15?mod=mw_latestnews
  14. I think we will see a lot of candidates drop out after they fail to make the Sept debates. So far 9 have qualified. Biden, Warren, Buttigieg, Harris, Sanders, Booker, Beto, Klobouchar, and Yang. Castro and Gabbard can get in if they increase their standings in the polls. The need to be at at least 2% in at least 4 of 13 qualifying polls by August 28th. Even Tom Steyer might sneak in. But the rest, they probably won't make the cut for the debate, and should all drop out.
  15. Supply who exactly with weapons? There is no opposing army. No one has training in using weapons that would be used against the PLA. It would be of the utmost stupid to try and arm anyone in HK.
