Halloween SAT Question

  • Here's your SAT question of the day. If Muckdog anticipates about 70 trick-or-treaters, and has 200 pieces of candy, how many pieces of candy should Muckdog hand out to each kid and what time should he turn off the lights to ensure there are leftover Baby Ruths and Snickers?  Hmm.  Or, should Muckdog just eat the Baby Ruths and Snickers when he gets home?
  • The market?  Uh, I hate to mention that maybe things are starting to look a little shakey.  But lets go to the seasonal stuff and see if it holds up.  We're at the last day of October and 401(k) contributions should be kicking in over the next few days.  Typically, this would mean that there is some buying pressure as money is being put to work.  Of course, typically doesn't seem to be working at the minute but it is something to keep in mind.
  • MySpace to block illegal use of copyrighted music!  That clicking sound you hear is the sound of folks clicking to other websites.  Although, one would have to think that it's just a matter of time before sites are effectively able to enforce copyrights.  We.  Shall.  See.
  • Baidu falls 9% during trading and another 9% afterhours on weak forecast.  Earnings were up, but the forecast is what got folks.  Despite the positive earnings, investors were punishing the company's stock in late trading after Baidu projected fourth-quarter revenue of $34 million to $35 million, while analysts were expecting $36 million.
