Saturday Night Randomosity

  • laker girls In six weeks, the SP500 has advanced 28.5%.  Biggest six week advance since 1938.  If history is any indicator, Germany will soon invade Poland.  Stay tuned, and cancel those vacation plans for France.
  • My thoughts are that this next week would be the logical point for the markets to take a break.  It's the week after options expiration and the week before the end of month 401(k) contributions.  Coincidentally, we could get an interesting sell signal if the MACD crosses down triggering the seasonal exit point for the folks who follow Sy Harding.

  • President Obama says he is going to cut wasteful programs.  Anyone taking bets on this?  Anyone keeping track?  I wish him luck, but call me very skeptical.  He has to get this by Harry and Nancy, and do you see them cutting programs?  Everyday we hear of new programs, so net-net I can't imagine there being fewer programs in the years ahead.
  • A Florida woman stabbed her boyfriend in the chest with a steak knife over Pop Tarts, police said.  Many people take their pop tarts seriously.  I did a Twitter search for Pop Tarts, and look at all the chatter going on:

  • A southwest Ohio teacher has resigned after acknowledging she accompanied four female students to a male strip club, a school spokesman said. Oh yes it's ladies night, and I'm feeling right.  Oh yes it's ladies night, oh what a night (oh, what a night).
  • Dodgers continued on their win streak, besting Colorado yet again.  Loving the iPhone app
  • Rumor is that Hulu is making an app for the iPhone.  That's NBC.  Now you will be able to watch Samantha Who whenever you want.  Er...
