The Romans were really good at philosophy, the arts, and military conquest. But their math sucks.

If my country was one of the last metric hold outs in the world, I wouldn't cast stones in this direction.

:P

Wouldn't you need to be British to cast stones?

A very measured and weighty response...

Honestly when I saw an article last week that was something to the effect of “Bank of America says the argument for a bear market...there is reason for a bear market” got me thinking...well that could certainly be a sign of the top.

Oops. Missed the top. Only up 64% as of close today--totally and forever screwed.

Usually the market decides to drop the day AFTER my monthly contributions post. Quite considerate of it to do so in advance this month.

according to financial experts I heard today, 10 yr treasury yields absolutely skyrocketed to ... a shocking 1.6% which means the SKY IS FALLING and hence TOP IS IN!

In other news, US short term interest rates are dropping, with short treasuries threatening to test negative rates (er, like, the rest of the world) which according to financial experts would be terrible and means that the SKY IS FALLING and hence TOP IS IN!

Either way it's obvious if you don't think about it.

Well I pulled out some money from VTSAX (Wifey wants a new car) so it will definitely skyrocket from here.. So Top is definitely NOT in.

Yup thats exactly what I mean.. It will probably be purchased from Enterprise or Hertz as their prices are pretty keen.

We are in the market for a vehicle with AWD that you can sleep in.. That gets really shitty gas mileage.. Its an American tradition...:)

Would a vehicle with treads technically be classified as having AWD? Inquiring minds want to know.

The treads go around a series of wheels...

True, but I don't think they all technically drive the tracks.  Not sure though.

There is typically only one driving wheel per track.  The others create pressure for traction/support.

Aren't the wheels of a tracked vehicle actually sprockets? And wouldn't the entire track count as a single "wheel" since it's a continuous track that can only move as a single unit? What advantage would driving multiple sprockets within a single track provide that a single driving sprocket couldn't?  And don't tracked vehicles have independent drivetrains for the tracks so they are able to turn?

Depending on when in 1999 Bill Amend posted that comic, he did a shockingly good job of calling the tech market bubble top.

I think the date is July 20, 1999. Roughly a year before the "top".

It's in a dll from a package I got off of NuGet. Who knows what's in there.

.NET humor top is in :D

Some years ago I was working with a self-taught programmer who hadn't been exposed to a fully object-oriented architecture.   C#.Net.      He asked me how to manipulate the objects in a collection since they might be different.

"Oh, just cast them to the thus-and-so interface and deal with them that way."   I knew they would all share that interface.  Ever shifted a manual transmission and got the timing wrong so gears grind a bit?   You could actually see his facial muscles twitch as his mental gears ground away.

"Ok, so, an absolutely beautiful woman walks into our office and puts her purse down on the desk, then turns around and introduces you as our new team member.   Now you cast her from the beautiful woman I'd like to date role into the colleague interface and deal with her that way."

You could see the gears working smoothly again.   Then he responded, "Yeah, but now you're objectifying women!"

I couldn't get any work done for an hour 'cause I couldn't stop laughing.
