Yeah, there are different ways to make that cut.
Some say Columbus, some say Fall of Byzantine…. I don’t think that you can make that up on one event. It happened around 1500, that’s good enough for me 🙂
I think it’s more a matter of chosing your industries and your companies right now, not just blindly investing in tech sector like it was in the 90s. That means people have to work to make their money grow and they are not choosing to do the work. Thus their money is shrinking and thus they are claiming it’s an aweful bear market!
I know I’ve taken a wash on a few stocks because I screwed up on my homework. But it was not the market’s fault, it was my fault for believing the wrong set of data. I’ve also made a killing on some WAG stocks (Wild Assed Guesses).
Now that you mention it… there is a striking resemblence that I have never noticed before.
It’s no coincidence. Lucas used all kinds of sources for his designs. If for example you watch the scenes in the movie The Enemy Below in which the crew of the American destroyer have gone to action stations, you’ll note some of them wearing historically accurate oversized helmets that look exactly like the ones worn by some of the Death Star technicians in Star Wars.
care about the environment. Loggin’ is their biggest business.
well, we do “care” about the environment - prolly more than America, as well as many other nations. We are the home of Greenpeace, afterall. Also there are many “renewable resource” programs in place, and dozens of friends of mine spend their summers working tree-planting for these logging companies, etc.
No no, not logging. Our shame is in Alberta - a province that is working against Kyoto and environmental measures (it’s the Texas of Canada - with the good and the bad), not that Ontario is so great either - much industry near Toronto etc. Also we do waste quite a bit. Nice having all that landfill room.
