Perfect Storm

Dude…the economy–the WORLD economy–is crashing! There’s a crucial presedential election in its final stages where a black man with a Muslim-sounding name is running against a white war hero. We are fighting two wars. Terrorists are plotting. The country is divided. Our leaders are loathed. These are worrisome times. It’s time to man up, tough it out and show what America is all about. No whining. No entitlement mentality. Let’s get to work.

    Sounds great!!!!!!

    So what do we do??

  2. urstupidnourstupid Says:

    I don’t know. How about dwelling on past associations of political rivals. That should really help. 🙂

    Or we could all pull our money out of the banks and put it under the mattress.

    Questin: What does a “point” represent in the stock market? As in “the market is down 123 points.” It’s a measure of volume of the whole, but what percentage? It has to change because the volume grows over the years, so…? If the Dow is it 8000, then losing 123 points is worse than if it’s at 10,000.

  5. urstupidnourstupid Says:

    That’s correct. I don’t know exactly how they determine “the score” but you can calculate the points into a percentage. So you are right. 123 points off of 8,000 is worse than if its off 10,000.

  6. urstupidnourstupid Says:

    Right–so my point is, why don’t they just say the percentage (which everyone can immediately relate to) instead of points, which, if you don’t know the volume, is useless information. You’d think with something as important as money…
