1. Out on a limb…possibly in a minefield

I’m going to go out on a limb here, without making a well articulated essay-style explanation as to how I reached this end: North Korea is a setup. It’s not really them. Okay, it looks like N.Ks on ships and launching attacks.. and making obscene phone calls to their neighbours… it’s not of their own motivation. Does anyone remember that little talked about incident under Nixon where guns were being provided to Tibet? … Why was that again?

Next up, stocks. Hey what you know an article on ‘Blue Chips for 2011‘ (isn’t that an oxymoron? Do you really think things are going to get better that easily… read this) … and what does it feature?  … psst, take a look at the page for yourself. I don’t mind *shrug* it’s just a look.

Little ole Sham Gad would like to steer you towards defense stocks (Lockheed Martin, mr. ‘we never forget who we’re working for… til someone else makes a better offer’) and food stamps.. er.. I mean food companies.

Q: is it true that the best way out of a depressed economy is war?

A: Uncle Sam: Yes!

……..

President Franklin D. Roosevelt: Well, after a few years in depression, and watching several allies and founding nations of this country ravaged – yes.

President JF Kennedy: “Pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend…to assure the survival and success of liberty” … I mean yes. (Increased US military presence following 1958’s dip in GDP and raise of unemployment had nothing to do with it)

President Bill Clinton: Well yes, if it is based on numerous reports from reputable unofficial sources.

President George W.(stands for “White puppet”) Bush: Hells yes! *for more watch Zeitgeist or read.

“You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror.” – George W.Bush interview with CBS News’ Katie Couric, Sept. 6, 2006

bah.. this could go on forever.. Carter, Regan… so many more presidents I don’t even know.

A: President Obama:  <<…. waiting for response >>

2. Old teeth = New evolution theory

See, now this is just what I was saying – people who live in cold climates are stupid. Oldest tooth found hheerree. “One group of descendants migrated to Europe and developed into Neanderthals, later becoming extinct. Another group stayed in Africa and evolved into Homo sapiens — modern humans.”

Should have stayed in Africa *wags finger*. But really now, let’s take bets.. I’m betting the tooth in fact belonged to a duck-billed platypus. Those guys were everywhere. All the time! By the time they made it up past the equator from New Zeeeeland they were damn hungry – so they got teeth. End of story.

I’d bet $5 dollars that’s fact. .. yea.

3. Youku’s here .. where’s Taobao?

One last poke at Motley Fool before year end;

Q: Will 2011 be the year of the IPO?

A: No.

And… who knew www.youku.com was listed?? As of Dec. 8th, crazy. Tell me when TaoBao gets on there… love that site.

************************************************************************

That’s right, Toronto will no longer export it’s garbage to Michigan!

But.. the darkside of this moon is… um.. is this due to the fact that Site 41 is so much nearer??  😦 Nah, not til 2034 at least.. when they fill up the site near London 😦 … consumers, stop consuming.. or tone it down.

I think I’m going to Zumba into the new year… but what shall I drink? hmm…
