As always, click on the photo to link up to the entire piece. 

Goggles banned at school swimming lessons

Children have been banned from wearing goggles during school swimming lessons for fears they could hurt themselves.

Pen-pushers have slapped the ban on the swimming aids amid "fears" a pair could "snap" onto a child's face too hard, injuring them.


I could go on and on and on and ........ for days.


A One Hundred Trillion Dollar Bill

Evidently, the One Hundred Trillion Dollar note you see below is/was real.

At least in the sense that some moron at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe viewed it as currency.

Jeff Harding in a very well done piece, claims it was purchased for $7.50 on Ebay.

Click on the One Hundred Trillion Dollar note for the story.

Way double highly recommended.

Easy reading, lots of pictures, just for you Terry D. II


Money: A Semi Pictorial Fable

By Jeff Harding, on October 17th, 2009



I don't know about you, but I find it troubling that the morons running our federal government are beginning to compare so favorably with your basic Zimbabwean government morons.

As an aside, I was unable to open either the official government web site, or the Zimbabwe tourism authority site.

I couldn't decide if that was a good thing, or a bad thing.


European budget deficits

Submitted by Roanman on Mon, 05/17/2010 - 15:35


Speigel Online offers a very informative and entertaining piece entitled,

The Hollow Euro

Specter of Inflation Haunts Europe

It's a little long, but pretty easy to read.


Click on any chart to link to the site.




P.S. American taxpayers contribute about $50 billion by way of a 17-20% partnership in the $250 Billion from the IMF. 





I'm searching high and low for a similar treatment of deficits within the states.

Most notably California, New York, Illinois et. al.

Preferably with lots of pretty colors, graphics, etc.

You know what I like. 

If you see something, let me know.
