Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

You know, this used to be a helluva good forum. I can't understand what's gone wrong with it. Everybody got chicken, that's what happened. 
Can you, please, clarify why do you think so?

Re: The Man Who Solved the Market: How Jim Simons Launched the Quant Revolution

It's an amusing book, I enjoyed reading it.  The journalist did a good job collecting fairy tales about Rentec employers. Nevertheless he never mentioned one fact about one deranged employee who shot his wife before shooting himself.  http://longisland.news12.com/story/34769992/police-identify-port-...

Re: Wow!

Did you buy the dip?  I don't touch my retirement account, and so rode it out.  If 'buy' includes 'did not sell', then -- yes! That's equivalent to buying the dip in a sense :).  P.S. My ex-wife (cold blooded bitch who once tried to break the bottle of fine scotch over my head) suddenly called me d...

Re: Brazil, enemy of the landing strip

Such a shame Bolsonaro is ruling the roost.
The choice in Brazil reminded the elections in US to some degree: corrupted workers party versus populist.

Re: Brazil, enemy of the landing strip

Another record reached by Bolsonaro. Brazil surpasses 100,000 coronavirus deaths, three million cases https://www.rte.ie/news/coronavirus/2020/0809/1158135-coronavirus-world/ It's sad.
