weather markets: part 3

There is a god. There is a light at the end of this tunnel. Or it could just be someone else looking in.

thanks Shakes, the familiar weather icon format really does help. you needed to keep in mind that, as always, many people spent most of this past week in a cave and, therefor, didn't have the background info on the market crash to properly put your original snapshot into context. duh.

Hey Mr. Culturedrone!! Why are you so mean? I am a smart person but I could not understand the original chart. There were many pluses and minuses and so many numbers that weren't very big, it was hard to find the mortal kombat death blow figure.

Only after Mr. Shakes was kind enough to make a graph for me that I could understand...only then did I understood DJIA referred to Dow Jones Industrial Average. Until then, it was simply a jumble of letters mixed up with other ones.

So, what is my point? Mr. Culturedrone isn't a very nice person and Mr. Shakes helps me understand the economy. Keep the posts coming, Mr. Shakes!!

first of all, i'm not a man.

second of all, i was only joking and more so in reference to the humor behind displaying this info in the form of weather report-like icons to make it easier to understand (which, by the way, i think one could interpret as sarcastic humor in its own right--a case of over simplification). shakes said he did this to assist all of his loyal readers, not just you.

lastly, i don't think one needed to be able to see or understand the original snap shot to get the reference to the market blood-bath, that presumably most people were duly aware of.

stop crying anonymous, it's all going to be all right.

oh snap! it's an old fashioned cat fight!

no. i really don't want to fight. i was really only joking to begin with. i guess i just have a sarcastic sense of humor that rubs people the worng way at times. oh, god, i'm just so misunderstood.

Yes, Mr. Shakes. I do not want to fight.

Ms. Culturedrone does not like me and thinks that I am stupid because I could not understand the chart. That is ok. I will still be her friend if she wants.

You will always be my friend, Mr. Shakes! I enjoy your blog very much!!
