Your Wells Fargo Bank Dollars at Work


As seen in the comments, the following was all just a misunderstanding. I apologize to Anonymous for misreading the sarcastic intent. Live by the sarcasm, die by the sarcasm.

It seems my blog was very popular at Wells Fargo Bank today.

As they almost say in Vegas, what happens on the Internet, stays on the Internet. Anonymity is perhaps not as anonymous as all might hope. Enjoy the disbursement of the following publicly available information! (As a side note, I know nothing more about visitors than we all do.)

Wells Fargo Bank! 26 minutes and 7 seconds! Nice!

Oh, look. There's an out click! Let's see where that takes us.

Then, using the power of bullshit, you could draw conclusions about future trend failures...

I must have hit a financial corporate equity parabolic trend failure nerve. Is it bullshit to say that all financial parabolas are guaranteed to fail? Or that financial parabolas, especially those involving the banking industry, do not promote economic stability? Is it bullshit to say this in public? Perhaps it is, at least to Wells Fargo Bank employees.

Is there a more optimistic word...

I'm just not being optimistic enough to please the Wells Fargo employees who use the Wells Fargo Bank resources to visit my blog during Wells Fargo Bank company hours. Sorry about that! I will therefore make an effort to find something optimistic to say.

U.S., Wells Fargo not as 'optimistic' about lawsuit settlement: lawyer

(Reuters) - Wells Fargo & Co and the U.S. Department of Justice are "no longer as optimistic" about settling a lawsuit accusing the country's largest mortgage lender of fraud, a lawyer for the bank said on Tuesday.

It's got optimistic in the title. I know, it also says not as. There's just no pleasing some people.

I want to see you combine your old favourite, the exponential trend failure, with your new favourite, the parabolic trend failure.

So I invite you to plot something in a logarithmic co-ordinate, that looks like a parabola until wham!

For those interested, visitor statistics can be found at the lower left hand corner of my blog.

These statistics are available to everyone. It generally doesn't offer much information about any given person, unless that person happens to be working at a major bank and opts to use that bank's ISP.

Even then, that's all we know.

I would, of course, be deeply honored if John G. Stumpf wrote that comment.

Inigo Montoya: 'kay.

That said, I'm sure the bank knows. Might be good to brush up on the employee handbook.

I rescued your comment from the SPAM blocker again, and yet it can't seem to catch much actual SPAM. It often lets that come right on through. Go figure.

So I invite you to plot something in a logarithmic co-ordinate, that looks like a parabola until wham!

I will definitely keep my eye out for one. You're making it hard though! I've definitely seen parabolas on long-term log charts, but I'm not sure I've seen one fail yet.

Perhaps that will be the holy grail of my quest!

I should probably start my search in France. Rumor has it that they might already have one, lol. Sigh.

Rob Dawg,

Parabolic trend failures are all the rage, but I'd like see more Parasitic Trend failures. As in, parasitic banks like Wells Fargo failing in epic ways.

It may seem tangential, preferential, or inconsequential, but its quintessential, differential, and affects all things residential (drops mike).

Mr Slippery,

Parabolic parasitic twin failures require the power of two (x^2)!

But if one wants extreme leverage, parasitic quadruplets are where money's really made.

Anonymous said...

Well, I was using 'the power of bullshit' as a way of being cynical about writing Financial books from bogus statistical data, NOT about your Parabolic Trend Failures; which I happen to enjoy reading.

Sorry for the confusion AND the unintentional insult to your Parabolic Trends.

Stagflationary Mark said...


I apologize as well. I thought I was being heckled by a Ferrari driving bank employee intent on setting me straight about the world.

Such is the danger of using sarcasm! It's really hard to read the true intent sometimes without being able to hear the person's voice.

Thanks for clearing this up! Once again, apologies to you for misreading your intent!

I have updated the post to say that this was all just a misunderstanding.
