@chubbymike > "What happened to Robots Read News 18?"
.. Robots have an irrational aversion to the number 17.
ps. irrelevant to the main topic:
while randomly browsing, i came across the 1944 OSS Simple Sabotage Field Manual, sections 11,12
.. i accuse Pointy Hair Boss and Wally of being left-over OSS saboteurs from when their company manufactured precision beer mats for Nazi Germany. Despite the charade presented in the strip, they are actually in cahoots. (Also, being cartoon characters, they never age, and are unfamiliar with change in general - hence the continued dedication to sabotage.)
smartmuffin, film critic hulk talks in all caps too but if anything that makes him seem unemotional.
Sometimes all caps doesn't mean angry; sometimes it means laziness or simplicity. It could also mean efficiency because with spaces and punctuation, we know where the sentences end. A lot of languages out there don't have a lower case.
Isn't circular trading illegal in the USA?
It is here in India and such traders are regularly identified and penalised.
After reading Michael Lewis' Flash Boys and now with this, it seems the American stock market excels at taking money from the poor and giving it to the crooked rich.
