|Apr-14-15|| ||zanzibar: Oh, it's good to be Hikaru!
|Apr-15-15|| ||HeMateMe: There's nothing like a Strawberry shake to cheer you up!|
|Apr-16-15|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> I like the chessboard pattern on the tiling.|
Wondering who she was, I tried to use the Google image search to find out who was pictured. I got this result:
Talk about pattern recognition. To infinity and beyond!
|Apr-16-15|| ||HeMateMe: It's Hanah Ferguson, one of the newer SI bikini models. She's all over other magazines, too.|
|Apr-17-15|| ||zanzibar: A word of warning about what this kind of stuff can lead to:|
|Apr-17-15|| ||zanzibar: Normally I don't like posting here unless I can get some kind of chess tie-in. |
But the feature and features here are so striking that I have to make an exception.
Plus I'm a sucker for big brown eyes, long eyelashes, a soft nose, big pursed lips, and a hump (or two):
|Apr-17-15|| ||HeMateMe: We didn't know you were a hump man!|
|Apr-17-15|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> Well, if the humps in the right places, like the Outback:|
<In 1977, Robyn Davidson embarked on a particularly distinctive an intimate journey: crossing the Australian Outback. With only four camels and her dog, Davidson travelled from Alice Springs in central Australia, through the Gibson Desert westward to the coast of the Indian Ocean.
The journey took nine months to complete. She documented the legendary trip in her book, Tracks, and photographer Rick Smolan recently compiled the trip's stunning imagery in his new book, Inside Tracks.>

I guess they don't pick them for their brains.

Supposedly Bob Barker was shagging some of the PIR models, doing it between shows in his dressing room, as they do five shows in one day. One girl went public, claiming that it was his say who got to work on the show, and she was coerced.
|Apr-18-15|| ||Jim Bartle: As far as I'm concerned, punching Adam Sandler makes up for a multitude of sins.|
|Apr-18-15|| ||HeMateMe: Paul Mac acoustic cover, not bad
|Apr-20-15|| ||HeMateMe: Is China regressing? Car show models are banned:
|Apr-20-15|| ||zanzibar: Must be seasonal - they don't call it spring for nuthing...|
(The chess connection? I guess it's that we're all just pawns... or maybe it's the contrast between an open and closed game in slide #4 - and the unifying thematic purple motif)
Sting like a butterfly, float out with a smile...
|Apr-21-15|| ||HeMateMe: A ten year German bond has only a 1% rate of return?|
The protester does look good in the thong. I guess she works out.
|Apr-21-15|| ||keypusher: <Apr-21-15 HeMateMe: A ten year German bond has only a 1% rate of return?>|
Now that's something to protest about.
|Apr-21-15|| ||whiteshark: <A ten year German bond has only a 1% rate of return> in connection with a target 'inflation rate' of 1.8% - 2.1% you are really losing money.|
|Apr-21-15|| ||zanzibar: The (in)famous <MissScarlett> at higher-res:|
Didn't realize she was so "racy", one of those red-heads my mom warned me about.
I'll omit the obvious other puns.
|Apr-21-15|| ||HeMateMe: It seems almost break even. The Euro people feel that inflation will be almost zero there, in the next couple of years.|
Same thing has happened in Japan. Deflation, some years, and a simple zero return for government securities, guaranteeing the purchasing power of your yen, is acceptable.
|Apr-21-15|| ||northernfox: <HMM> You got the decimal place wrong: a 10 yr German Bund sells at a .1 % yield per annum--effectively, 0 interest.|
|Apr-21-15|| ||HeMateMe: <fox> I guess you're right. the article stated that the long German bond had "lost 20% of it's yield, down to .105." That would mean it was at a hearty .126% before losing even more value? Seems almost as if they will soon experience deflation.|
|Apr-21-15|| ||northernfox: <HMM> The 10 year German bond yield, and shorter maturities that have negative yields, are pointing toward or indicating deflation, but they do not yet have significant deflation in the EU, and the indication could turn out to be wrong. |
BTW, why are we discussing these important and interesting economic/finance issues on the <Doll> page?
|Apr-21-15|| ||zanzibar: <<northernfox> BTW, why are we discussing these important and interesting economic/finance issues on the <Doll> page?>|
Blame Josephine Witt for the throng (or did I get that wrong?). She leapt upon the subject first.
Perhaps time to take it over to a real economists page?
|Apr-21-15|| ||HeMateMe: Geez, your right. We almost had Rogoff II here. We need to get back to the girls. How about a hybrid topic? Unusual Ukrainian women protest their government's treatment of political detainees?|
|Apr-21-15|| ||northernfox: <HMM> Sure, let's do that. Those <fremen> certainly have nice . . . slogans.|
