She is so precious.
Long time no blog!
I was putting together some quotes for my smash hit youtube series, eEconomics, and figured I’d browse through Krugman’s blog as an easy source for some choice B-S.
And this statement about the Cyprus banking crisis jumped out at me:
As long as you haven’t bought into…
well you won’t see anything cooler than this today.
Some people just don’t get it…
Valentine’s Day-a sadistic holiday invented by greeting card companies. Ignore that BS & celebrate Halloween this Thursday on @nbccommunity
When I’m walking behind someone and we are approaching a door I will fall far enough back behind them so that they are unlikely to hold the door open for me. I do this so that I don’t have to say thanks to them. Opening doors is a lot easier than acknowledging someones existence and speaking to them. Even though I always fall back a considerable length there are some people who will hold the door open for me and wait until I get to the door to go through. This is particularly annoying because now not only do I have to acknowledge their existence and talk to them but I also have to do a little jog up to the door so I don’t look like an asshole for making them wait too long. This semester I have noticed that the amount of people who hold the door open for me even though I am a considerable distance behind them has risen. I have also noticed that this rise is caused by one demographic. So far this semester ever single black person I have followed through a door has held the door open for me regardless of how far behind them I am.
What is the cause for these actions of the black community. I know most people view holding the door open for people as a courteous thing to do. Do black people have a sudden urge to be viewed as very courteous. Is it possible I am the only one receiving this treatment form black people. If I am is it because they know it will make me feel uncomfortable or is it because I look like someone they want to Impress?
Oh man, just CLASSIC stuff going on today. It’s difficult to accept that Buffett gets away with his shenanigans, but it’s easy to understand why if you just spend 3 seconds talking with any typical American.
Today, Berkshire Hathaway spent $1.2 billion buying back shares. This was universally…
