Andrei in the office

A return to the HSX

So, money is still tight and the job search continues (slowly. Much like molasses dripping from a spoon)

Obviously, I've stopped playing games that cost money. Poker I only play for free now. And well, stock market... that's always been a play game for me.

So... last week I returned to HSX. Hollywood Stock Exchange. An interesting wrinkle on the analysis of Hollywood films. The basic rules are quite simple. No one can have more than 50K shares of a film. (Either owning or owing). The value of a share depends on how much demand there is for the shares. Over opening weekend there is an adjustment. (Much like a quarterly report)

The adjustment goes: Share value = H$2.8 for every $1(M) the film makes during opening weekend. If a film makes, oh...$10 Million for the weekend. (which a certain film that you must see did), the stock is adjusted to H$28(ish) / share. Those that ran up the price to $45 (Expecting a $16(M) opening are thus disappointed and lose money in their portfolios.)

It's interesting if these things amuse you. And if they do, here's where I put in my referrer link. Check it out for a week or two. Kinda nifty. Yeah, sure, I get little bonuses if you use my referrer link, but in truth... I think it's ... well for lack of a better word... "Shiny"

Give it a whirl... and if you're on... I'd love to hear your reaction.

AWESOME! LaRouche hates that OTO Satanic Cult

From lapidus_93

It would appear that the solid and focussed brain of Lyndon LaRouche has opened and more pearls of his wisdom have issued forth.


This is today's best-known of the hard-core, British-based Satanist cults. Like the Lucis Trust, the OTO is a direct off-shoot of the work of Britain's leading twentieth-century Satanist, Theosophy leader Aliester Crowley. OTO enthusiasts claim this organization is an offshoot of Templar freemasonry, and hint at very influential protection from among Templars very high in British freemasonry.

"Real History of Satanism"

My feelings on this... LaRouche hates it... It must be an awesome thing ;)

Why do they let them use IM?

Long day. Not a happy day. Lots of annoyances from many angles... Here is one of today's. Yet another IM'er I didn't even have the patience to harass:

Andrei 3:03
Excuse me?

mubeenhomeboy 3:04
oh why

Andrei 3:04

mubeenhomeboy 3:04

Andrei 3:05
How about just telling me rather than asking me to ask you. Secondarily, please do not 'buzz me'. I will be more than happy to block that form of behavior

mubeenhomeboy 3:06
my name is mubeen
the reason why i call u dad is that any time i saw men id u remind of my father ok

Andrei 3:08
Perhaps you missed the fact that I said, do not buzz me. I will make this simple by blocking you now.

mubeenhomeboy 3:08
