Re: 1046: Skynet

Anyone who's even spent 5 minutes meditating would be familiar with the sense of "breathing manually". What was more interesting to me about this comic was the sense of the subject becoming the object of the subject at the next level of development, a concept I've encountered before in dev...

Re: 0980: "Money"

Even some of the traders have lost faith in the markets: Full story: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/going-galt-hedge-broker-shuts-down-firm-with-chilling-letter-about-the-market/ From this and your earlier post, you seem to be trying to criticize the outcome of free markets or capitalism.

Re: 0980: "Money"

Even some of the traders have lost faith in the markets: It is with regret and unflinching moral certainty that I announce that Barnhardt Capital Management has ceased operations. After six years of operating as an independent introducing brokerage, and eight years of employment as a broker before t...

Re: 0980: "Money"

Wow, great comic. Well done Randall. I came straight here hoping to see a discussion about the incredible mess the world is in, where we can have things like toxic banks, airplanes that cost 2.5 Billion dollars and something called the "derivatives market" that looks like it will probably ...

Re: "Golden Hammer" discussion (#801)

I get it... just the 'golden' hammer threw me off.
