@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.

Having the robot talk in all caps is undignified and detracts from the presentation. Makes him seem emotional. Robots don't have emotions. Defeats the purpose.

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.

What makes you feel that average human beings and gullible morons are mutually exclusive. :-)

For anyone interested, here's a good bloomberg article that goes through the technical details.

If there are that many gullible morons, then they're not really gullible morons - they're just average human beings.

A stock named Cynic - up 25,000%? I think it will be shown that it's a hack and manipulation of the stock market system.

Years from now it will be seen as the moment investors realized the market is indeed rigged and it was the first stone, causing the first ripples, of the total meltdown of the market.

Unless they cover it up of course.

I think you meant to say "ten million criminal hackers, 6,999,999,999 gullible morons, and one ultra-genius cartoonist, who is the only human smart enough to see the Truth."

That wouldn't have fit in the panel very well, but we get your drift.
