You got it, Adam...

It's just another day in Paradise. :smile:

Long ago we took the prudent measures necessary to protect ourselves both physically and economically from becoming collateral damage of the consequences of the stupidity of others.

Elul29 is actually reckoned from sundown to sundown, so it's from sundown Sunday the 13th to sundown Monday the 14th.

It begins? Are we there yet?

Yes and I think this is your stop...

Jack Benny asked, Well? Did you interpret the sacred texts incorrectly as all the other scammers have for thousands of years? Or is it the fact that sacred texts aren't evidence allowed in a civilized discourse?

And Adam? Why are you harassing me? Harass Greg.

Wow...poor thing,

I am really sorry to have offended your tender sensibilities...

Consider me properly chastised...

Not in what's going to happen, Peter. Enjoy your ride... :wink:

Peter Sellers almost played even another role in this film. I think he played three. My favorite character was the AF general Jack Ripper played by Sterling Hayden. George C. Scott was memorable all over his place. Remember when he was asked if he thought the B-52 would have a chance of getting through to its target? I once asked my uncle, who was a navigator on B-36s, if his B-36s out of Puerto Rico would have gotten through--similar reaction but without the theatrics.

Major T. J. "King" Kong, was the B-52 Stratofortress bomber's commander and pilot. What a great character. Dumb and countrified yet dedicated and true-blue. Like Greg. Greg, do I have to ask? Why were you, not the sacred texts, so wrong? No excuses? No reworking the cow patty? Not goin’ ta reset your sundial? Thanks for the sentimental video. luckily Adam (who played Colonel Batt Guano in the movie) was watching it descend. Kaboom!

Memories light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories of the way we were

Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another for the way we were.

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again, tell me, would we, could we

Memories may be beautiful and yet
What's too painful to remember we simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
Whenever we remember the way we were.

The way we were.

Apey's lame attempt at a face-saving out -- his lie -- is that his stupid predictions were just "fun entertainment value."

But that's only because he failed. If anything negative at all had happened on the world economic stage, no matter how minor, Apey would be here today claiming victory and believing with all of his heart in the validity of his magical powers of divination rather than lying that it was all just fun entertainment value.

Oh, I forgot that shit. No wonder I slept well last night.

all the crap I refused to learn has not left me ignorant, just un-fucked up (I still track in a lot of dirt I'm continually sweeping out, but at least I'm not buried in what people keep trying to dump on me and why I'm usually glad and thankful to be corrected [i need to buff up my critical thinking and direct application of that to my life, personal and productive (those African American stumpers for Trump have shamed me [is there room for another bracket? (I hope this isn't confusing)])])

Here's the BOLD prediction that caught my eye lo these many months ago ...

Predict an arrival time to within the year and month.... Then we will see how good a prognosticator you are....



Sure, Bob. :smile:

Biggest stock market collapse, September 17th, 2001
Biggest stock market collapse, September 29th, 2008
Biggest stock market collapse, September 13th, 2015.

What do these three ALL share in common.

They are ALL the 29th of Elul, the last day of a seventh Sabbath Year on the Jewish calendar

I've already stated this more than once... but I'm not the predictor. Someone else is. I only believe he's right because of the spiritual BOND between America and Israel.


[...] On 911, America lost God's protection just as Israel did thousands of years ago... and like clockwork each succeeding shockwave has been Shaking America right down to its foundations.


Blah blah blah Jonathan Cahn. Blah. Blah blah blah blah, blah blah.

-- that is about the sum total of the sense Greg has made in this thread, and in others where he peddled Cahn's moral/economic astrology whoopee.

With a whimper, not a bang, OL's lone Christophile hoogie-boogie man sees out the Shemita Year. All hail hoogie-boogie gone down in zany irrationality. Long live America free of moralistic claptrap. May Greg someday find a church more friendly to his mystical flim-flam than are OL congregants.

Just like everything else in life, William... past performance does not guarantee future results. :wink:

Greg

With you, Apey, I think that past performance does guarantee future results: You'll be as stupid tomorrow as you were yesterday.

Everyone notices, I hope, that no matter whether or not anything happened Monday, Greg's point is that his chosen way to live is not affected by whether the market went up or down or crashed.

The Donald pointed out that the stock exchange was a gambling casino.

Greg does not gamble.

That is a choice.

However, he will never experience the incredible tension and joy when a smart "bet" pays off.

Yet, he and I can live side by side in the same community of men quite well, and never have a dispute, never have to live and produce for my sake, nor will I have to live and produce for his sake.

That's not true. Greg lives and works in a society whose economy is tied into the stock market. He buys goods that others make. The value of his money (or barter) is just as affected as ours. His cost of PVC, and whatever else he uses in his experimenting with his poop, goes up and down just as it does for everyone else who depends on society to manufacture goods that they, like Greg, can't produce themselves.

Greg is pretending to be independent. He's playing at being doomsday prepper and apocalypse survivor, all the while depending (for all of his prepper supplies) upon the society that he claims to condemn.

If you gamble you're enjoying doomsday for it'll get you by playing to your adrenaline rushes. Wall Street traders are only 3% survivors after several years if not sooner and still at risk. Investing in equities is another kettle of fish, but you have to know the difference clearly or you're at danger of being sucked into the other side. That kind of "investor" buys when prices are high and sells when they are low.
