"You ever have big dreams of makin' real cream?
Big shot, heavy hitter on the mainstream
You wanna look trendy,in the Bentley
Be a snob and never act friendly
You wanna have big fame, let me explain
What happends to these stars and their big brains
First they get played like all damn day
Long as you sell everything will be O.K.
Then you get dissed by the media and fans
Things never stay the same way they began...
Think everything's fine in the big time
See me in my Lex' with the chrome raised high
So you wanna roll far and live large?
It ain't all that goes with bein' a rockstar"
-Cypress Hill

Aww Silent, bad day at the office?

Stop worrying about the IMF gold release. It's a drop in the bucket, your short-term positions will be fine. Don't fear, my dear shining star, you are on the right track.

xxoo gee-gee xxoo

He's just sulky because I beat him at chess so quickly yesterday

Those charts are ugly as sin, Silent, but I don't see how all the pieces fit together. Or did you two go through all that tequilia in a single day?

We can't all be rock superstars. Looks like a lot of people picked the wrong time to try, is all I'm trying to say, I guess.

In the world of rock stars, I'm just a roadie.

Why would you want to be a rockstar??
Be happy to be you...they are alot more tortured then the average bear.
If you were a would only wish to be a regular guy.

It sounds nice to have groupies and roadies but in the end you are still you.That will never change so enjoy that.
If you had groupies,you would probably hate them for liking the wrong you.
Its not the guy on stage that matters,its who he really is that matters...and most don't care who you really are as they just want the person on stage.
Just be you and be happy to be don't need to be a rockstar to enjoy life.

I think what he's trying to say is getting the juice is worth the squeeze if you can handle the stress that comes from it.

The first graph is alarming because it shows a seemingly EXPONENTIAL curve in the rate in which we are collecting debt, juxtaposed with a rather stagnant and almost un-growing amount of people taking those loans.

it is slightly misleading because we dont have the vaules for the X plot, or is the vertical "Y"?

but what I REALLY dont get is the second graph is saying that foriegn nations stopped buying our bad debt in 2008, which is Last year. but that doesnt make since because there are thousands of threads here that hint at this same thing but most all of them say they will eventually stop. I guess its possible for the graph to encompass 2009 on the right most edge, but every other plot is in 5 year spans.
