Re: All about Cats

Cat looks
Adorable black kitty!  Is this the one you have rescued from Egypt?

That was quite a story, but a great cause!

(and if so, how are your other two cats handling the newcomer? Could be harmonious, could be... !!!)

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

This is going downhill very quickly.  He he. ; )

But you can google "Thule Air Base" and "Greenland rare earths" and come up with some useful information.

It's an interesting move/diplomatic gaffe in the Post Cold War/Cold War II theater.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

But... it's American! Does he want to buy his own air base? Buying the entire country would secure the future for the Base.   Look at strategic considerations - Intercontinental Ballistic Missile early warning system, proximity to Arctic Circle.  The northern most base for the US.... And the rare e...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

What's so special in Greenland?
Thule Air Base (a U.S. holdover from WWII/Cold War and now focused on space defense) and separately - rare earth elements and ores.

Not justifying the crazy scheme, but just FYI.

Re: What do you prefer?

I'm torn. This is not the OT. But, given that this involves my two favorite WoW, I should probably come clean and confess that I'm part amaretto chocolate mousse. Hehe.  Well: 1) This is nothing compared to the spam that has popped up around here recently. Particularly a series posted in multiple f...

Re: What do you prefer?

But I will say that I have a recipe for Amaretto Chocolate Mousse that would have both of us licking the silver off the spoons to get that last tiny bite.   https://www.thespruceeats.com/thmb/skCkAMihwv6wM4LZS84qkfqH3i4=/450x0/filters:no_upscale():max_bytes(150000):strip_icc()/GettyImages-57042550-5...

Is that a Venchi chocolate in your mouth, or are you just happy to see me?

Re: How to safeguard my research

Hello Amin, I just noticed your recent posts in the last few days. I have been taking an extended break from the Forum, but wanted to say hello. On the research concern - I think your work is very well documented here and also on SSRN, so you have a clear record of publication with time stamps and a...

Re: norway

Is my assertion that in the town of Oslo with its phenomenal long-legged blondes I can safely roam around jazz/rock/metal clubs alone in the evenings correct? Listen, I will take a sisterly interest here and you may spit in my eye, but that's ok.  ; ) On the humorous side, if men flirt with you and...

Re: Arbitrage when risk-free portfolio earns less than riskless portfolio

Life is short and there are many interesting things to see and do. For some, leaving is about branching out and seeing what else there is on offer. Not some kind of insecurity or ego issue. : ) Enjoy your day, and remember what Herbert said in Dune: "And what do you despise? By this you are truly kn...

Indeed, duly noted and corrected in the previous post as well. (If someone called me frack-star, crackstar, of hackstar, that would be fine, but not correct.) :D Enjoy the Blue Tits and good to see you here.

Re: Arbitrage when risk-free portfolio earns less than riskless portfolio

frolloos is great, as are all of the others who are seeking life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness elsewhere. I guess it comes down to what building and nurturing a Community means to each of us. Extreme natural diversity (Blue Tits, lavender honey tea, and all) or some kind of cold AI-driven dyst...
