The #1 Reason for Today's Stock Market Crash

Report: Economy Failing Because U.S. Built On Ancient Indian Burial Grounds

We can cure that by turning it into a bankster burial grounds. Preferably, burying them while they're still alive. Especially if we make the fuckers jump first.

This makes about as much sense as most other exogenous causes you might hear about.

Nicely done!

I thought the tiki idol from that "Brady Bunch" episode was on display at the NYSE and that caused the crash? Who knows.

I should probably point out that most of my family was in banking. I therefore humbly beg you to limit the bankster burial ground to those with actual Wall Street connections. ;)

The exogenous causes are many! I suspect that a butterfly flapped its wings somewhere in the ADP jobs report. Of course, one wonders why the market couldn't detect all those butterfly wings in the Civilian Employment Update.

And as for the tiki idol, that is TOO funny and yes I do remember it! Monetary policy summed up in one Vincent Price tiki idol quote: "Think about it, while I go reheat my beans!"

Don't underestimate the power of the dark, I mean Rubicon to crash the market!

Mark I'm thinking you might be on to something with limiting your exercise intensity, because I noticed that whenever I drop the hammer on my interval training (I'm a mountain biker) my appetite skyrockets.
In fact it (my appetite) will far exceed my ability to lose weight if I don't really watch it after intense efforts.

Interesting observation.

I have noticed that too. In the past I would just power through it and work out even harder to compensate.

I think part of it might just be dehydration. We often confuse hunger with thirst.

My appetite will be the big unknown in this experiment. Will I eat another 100 calories because I burn another 100 calories? I really don't know for sure.

I can say that the workout was not enough to get me hungry though. It may have even lowered my appetite thanks to the 12 ounce glass of water I drank to go with it.

That was the main purpose of the water by the way. It isn't like a 5 minute workout should require 12 ounces of water.
