You are going to die! Part XXIX

Even if you avoid government, religion, pestilence, old age and move out of your own home – the things that are most likely to kill you – you still run a very likely chance of getting killed by something else. I’m not referring to animals nibbling on your flesh, getting bitten by a snake or one of those retched Kangaroos kicking you to death, no, there are far more sneakier enemies to watch out for.

One thing to be careful about is pancakes. Earlier this year (2009) a winner of a pancake-eating contest dropped dead after gorging himself on 43 of the cream and banana stuffed desserts. Boris Isayev, 48, from west Russia, collapsed to his knees and died on stage after stuffing himself with pancakes in a competition to mark the end of the region’s ‘Pancake Week’."He had really enjoyed the pancakes but then he started foaming at the mouth and went down like a sack of stones," one witness said. Witnesses apparently described Isayev as “the most active participant in the contest" adding that he "ate all the types of pancakes on offer and won fairly.” There is also more stories about people choking and dying from eating pancakes so this is not really a dish you wanna take lightly.

It is also scientifically proven that pancakes made from a mix that has sat around too long to suffer a potentially fatal anaphylactic reaction to the molds that have grown therein. One such case is a 19-year-old in Charleston, South Carolina, that collapsed in cardiopulmonary arrest and died. The same thing goes for everything you put on pancakes. Syrup, sugar and such can not only cause obesity, it might also cause similar reaction like the one told above. Although neither of this is unlikely to happen if you do not suffer from allergies, it’s yet other examples of the murderess pancake.

Another deadly menace is the Star Fruit. Star fruit is a decorative and refreshing treat and, for most of us, a healthy delicacy. But for some people with impaired kidney function, the star fruit (also known as carambola) can be deadly. Researchers from Brazil and Taiwan are studying why star fruit causes serious life-threatening reactions to some kidney patients. Apparently this fiend kills several people each year, in Brazil alone.

And does you stomach fill with gas when you eat an apple? When you eat a banana does your mouth become itchy? Does your throat swell when you eat raw peaches? When you eat raw pineapple does your throat burn or do you break out in hives? If you experience any of these conditions, you may suffer from Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS) also known as pollen-food syndrome. The most severe reactions can trigger asthma or anaphylaxis shock.

And speaking of bananas, those things contain potassium and too much potassium can cause arrhythmias (heart not beating properly). This has happened before and it will happen again, are you really watching out for those bananas?

There are a lot of things out there that might kill you; one of them will succeed sooner or later. It is just a matter of time.

How is the market (world) doing?

I have been looking at the stock market recently. I’m no real expert on stock markets, but since I know that they are highly overvalued at the moment it is fun to watch those graphs go up and down. Sooner or later a crash or at least a long downturn will emerge and while nibbling on some popcorn those graphs are almost like a video game.

Yesterday, 17th Aug 2009, Shares worldwide fell which some investors and economists worried feared that the recent stock market rally has come to an end. London's benchmark share index, the FTSE 100, dipped 68.96 points or 1.5pc to 4,645.01. European and Asian exchanges recorded similar drops. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 1.8pc at 9158.09. But despite this drop I do not really believe that it’s over already, stock markets will continue to go up and down for a while yet - as long as nothing very unusual happens. So you buffoons can probably still buy and sell stocks for a couple of months more since all those billions of stimulus money that mainly have weaselled its way into financial institutes, and artificially low interest rates will, together with an crazy over-optimism, keep things going for a while. Just like during the Great Depression (soon to be called: “the miniscule one”) we will see ups and downs. Looking at the Dow for instance it experienced no less than six Bear Market gains during the Great Depression - gains ranging from 12 percent to as much as 72 percent - all while the economy was in collapse and unemployment soared.

Speaking of unemployment I read an interesting piece in today’s paper. Looking at UK in 2009/10, the Treasury is expecting to take in £140.5 billion in gross income tax receipts, but social security benefits are projected to be £164.7 billion. I find this hilarious and even funnier it becomes when I one can read that the total amount of people on benefits will be over 6 million for the first time, ever. UK unemployment increased by 220,000 to 2,435,000 in the three months to June, taking the jobless rate to 7.8%. However, this figure is not really telling us about the 300 000+ jobs the government have “created” and the additional numbers being “hidden”. And looking at housing the Telegraph quoting Numis Securities that is saying: “Our core headline forecast is that UK property prices remain between 17% and 39% overvalued based on fair valuation. Moreover, history has shown us that when property…which has experienced a price bubble corrects, the price tends to fall below fair value for a period of time, as confidence in that market remains low. Prices could fall a further 40-55% if the over-correction was as bad as the early 1990s in our view.” Isn’t painting a nice picture? Ad to this the enormous total debt around 340% of GDP and an overvalued stock market and I hope you see what I see.

In the US things are even worse. There is no stopping the Obamination, even if it seems like he is taking one step back regarding public hell-care. The inflator policy is the worst in recorded history, official unemployment is near 10% (real number around 20%) and entire towns are closing down having unemployment numbers around 40%. Public services in Chicago have decided to shut down for a day in an attempt to deal with a $300m budget deficit. In California, which has a budget deficit of some $24.3bn and has declared fiscal emergency, state offices have been ordered to close for three days each month. Michigan has said it will not pay its state employees on six days up to the end of September, to save nearly $22m. If you never read Ayn Rands Atlas Shrugged, it might be time to do so, almost frightening likenesses. But the worst looming disaster of all is the USD that is so overvalued at the moment its frightening. Japan, China, Saudi Arabia, Brazil are still buying US treasuries, but during last couple of auctions it has not gone so well and the Fed are buying up treasuries like crazies further moneterizing a potential hyperinflation. The commercial real-estate market is about to collapse and people are hording guns and ammunition like there is no tomorrow. No wonder people are buying lots of alcohol (only retail commodity selling in huge numbers)and snorting cocaine with the few dollar bills they have left.

All in all, looking at graphs the current recession is “the worst since the Great Depression” but it’s still better than the Great Depression, so far. This leads many cornflake economists to conclude that this isn’t so bad and when some financial institutes (evil as they are) announces that the recession is over people tend to believe that crap. But read what I have just told you and take a look around. Does it seem like the recession is over? I see no end to this mess, none whatsoever. Temporarly gains will not change that. Not only will figures continue to drop, more stimuli will be thrown into the fire which will further inflate markets and further deteriorate the world economies.

Already when I started to really analyze what was going on a couple of years ago I thought this could be Great Depression bad, since then things has gotten a lot worse. Now I’m actually starting to believe my own persona on this blog. Just think about it; what is usually the consequence when people have lost everything, have nothing left to lose and everything around is hysterical and horrid? They will, most likely, turn towards those funny little men with hysterical answers, just as before. And in a world in deep deep depression, war is very likely. And what do we have today that they did not have the last time around during the 30’s and 40’s? That’s right, weapons of mass destruction...

Don’t kid yourself people. As I have said before and will urge you to do again; you better start stock-piling goods that will become useful i.e. cans, dried up food packages, candles, gasoline and weapons. Even if I’m wrong and you think I’m a complete idiot, those things are still good to have at home, and if I’m right it might very well be the thing that keeps you alive.

Two things that should be watched

First, watch this short clip:

And take the time to watch this afterwards. It is worth it. This is also one of the most viewed pieces on Youtube, please take the time.

Masters of puppets

One of this world’s most formidable foes, Goldman Sachs, have gone out and claimed that the recession is over. Goldman Sachs is the financial institution that not only squandered away tens of billions; they also needed a bail-out which they, through side-channels and subsidiaries, tunneled into their book keeping, and presto: got black numbers. Then they claimed to be able to pay back the money the American tax payers had given them, showing a profit. Meanwhile their old companions and former employees are sitting at the white house rubbing their hands together. Lex Luthor couldn’t have done it better.

Of all the fraudulent banksters and out of all the evil institutions of this world, Goldman Sachs is at the very top. How can anyone even consider listening to one of the banks that never got it right and would, by any reasonable marketing ethics been bankrupt a long time ago? And their spokesperson: Abby Joseph Cohen. How can anyone listen to her? This woman has never been right. I have actually looked, I couldn’t find a single time when her predictions were correct and even worse; the reality ends up being the complete opposite of what this horrible woman predicts. In fact, one of the best financial advices you can take is to listen to this she-devil and then do the complete opposite. How many billions haven’t this leaching succubus ring mastered out of investors? 1999, 2000, 2001 and so forth until last year when the predictions was off again with so much that any reasonable institution would fire her and all around, but she is still here and media still quote the bitch. And now she says that the recession is over? Oh, I feel so safe…

What in the all blazes of hell and snowy armpits of Santa is media doing? In Sweden they continue to refer to Swedbank as a having a good measure of when the recession is over. Swedbank is the worst of all banks whose economists should be burned alive, hacked into pieces and feed to wild swine flu piggies. And now media quote and refer to evil incorporated and their head black-widow as someone to listen to regarding the economy. How do they get away with this crap? Don’t you people out there realize what these gangsters are doing? They are robbing you blind and Muhahaha:ing into the sunset while the depression keeps going and the media says everything is fine.

And not a single newspaper, even if one or two British and American have so so tried have said anything correct - with one exception: Pravda, go figure. They still ignore all those people that have been completely spot on and not only predicting the recession, but also pinpointing details. Instead they pick up GDP numbers from a hat and throw them out among the audience like it’s a handful of pixie dust - “You feel sleepy, and you believe that the recession is over. GDP have been manipulated, but ignore it”. And then they throw a cloak of invisibility over financial markets and tell us: “Hey everybody, jobs aren't leaving as fast anymore, hoooray!”. What kind of bizarro world are you duped idiots living in? How many times are you going to let these pranksters pick your pockets? How many times will you let them wave shiny objects in your face while they are stealing your car and house? When is it enough?

When two of this world’s worst run financial institutes say the recession is over and the demon bitch from hell Abby Joseph Cohen is standing in front of media claiming the same, you know we are royally screwed. In fact, I take it as a sign that the next wave of the depression is even closer than I thought. I have predicted that the next wave will hit us close before x-mas or somewhere around February/Mars 2010, but now I wonder if it will not hit sooner.

There is enough information out there, so anyone of you that isn’t prepared for what is coming, you idiots deserve everything you get.

In defence of a stupid man

Again I need to "defend" a stupid prosecutor that cannot handle media and say the politically correct thing. In an effort to explain what should be a difference in regards to different levels of rape he sort of stepped into it saying that a “rape” within a relationship should not be regarded as the same thing as a brutal attack. In this he is, of course, correct, both legally speaking and morally. Even if Hillegrens "example" on penalty seem a bit strange; legally there is and should be a distinction between sexual abuses and rape and all the different levels of the two.

A person attacking a minor and violently rape this person with many bruises as well as emotional distress that comes with, should, at the very least, get locked away for a very long time. Preferably I would argue for the firing squad. If someone pushes another within a relationship and one says no but still, eventually, cave in having sex without wanting it that is not the same. Is it a crime at all? And if it is; what crime? What punishment? And when, in this latest example, does it become sexual abuse? Rape? When someone says no? If this is the case I have been raped many times myself. When someone says no several times and pushes the other one away? When?

People seem to have gone overboard on this issue and read something into something that isn’t there. Hillegren has never said there cannot be rape within a relationship; he has never said there shouldn’t be a punishment for rape. He might have expressed himself clumsy (and maybe gone to far), and he should know better than to antagonize an overzealous and politically correct media and populace, but was it wrong? I would like to see all those people screaming in blogs and such to take a breath and explain the differences, explain what punishment there should be and to do so with some form of level headiness.
