Viking Soul

“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”

One may wonder how come George Bush remained in power for so many years and didn't lock up himself.

"One would need a type of agreement on lost capital, so that the burden is shared, and in which every country is part of, otherwise more countries will suffer. The EU should do this. If they don't do this then the euro may not survive the crisis."

George Soros

In July, 2008, Soros shorted oil at $137 a barrel and put on a long position in gold. I smiled then. But it wasn't funny to see this trade to be thus successful. Note: Euro = Insolvent Ireland. Socialist France. Housing bubble Spain. Inflationist Italy. Export oriented Germany. (Ouch!)
There's a dozen reasons why we should see Euro-USD parity within months. Those who found refuge in the euro will likely run further into the dollar, yen and gold.

Telegraph reports:

For years scientists have failed to discover why as many as one in five pregnancies in a small Brazilian town have resulted in twins – most of them blond haired and blue eyed. But residents of Candido Godoi now claim that Mengele made repeated visits there in the early 1960s, posing at first as a vet but then offering medical treatment to the women of the town. Shuttling between Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil, he managed to evade justice before his death in 1979, but his dreams of a Nazi master race appeared unfulfilled. In a new book, Mengele: the Angel of Death in South America, the Argentine historian Jorge Camarasa, a specialist in the post-war Nazi flight to South America, has painstakingly pieced together the Nazi doctor's mysterious later years. After speaking to the townspeople of Candido Godoi, he is convinced that Mengele continued his genetic experiments with twins – with startling results.

Quite a long and peaceful life for a German psycho killer. Did you ever feel protected from evil? That is a dangerous illusion inseparable from human nature.

"Let me be clear on one point: I can’t predict the short-term movements of the stock market. I haven’t the faintest idea as to whether stocks will be higher or lower a month — or a year — from now. What is likely, however, is that the market will move higher, perhaps substantially so, well before either sentiment or the economy turns up. So if you wait for the robins, spring will be over."

Warren Buffet, arguably the richest man on earth

Today, the stocks are 20% cheaper. I did better than that. From today's point of view, Buffet's call was a cry for help. This guy doesn't get that some can't afford to lose 20% or more of their assets. I won't touch stocks with a ten-foot pole for the next couple of months.

Dailymail reports :

Inside the shiny new hospital, a tormented soul stalks the wards and corridors. Yet this is no ill patient, overworked junior doctor or beleaguered NHS trust executive. It is a ghost – or so says a leaked memo from a manager. Several workers at the £334million Royal Hospital in Derby have apparently been scared witless by the apparition, which they describe as a man dressed in black and wearing a cloak, who can walk through walls. Some believe the visitor is the ghost of a Roman soldier. The site used to be occupied by Derby’s City General Hospital, which was controversially built over one of Ancient Britain’s main Roman roads. Spooky past: The hospital was built over the Roman road in the 1920s leading to speculation that the ghost may be that of a Roman soldier killed there.

I speak to Roman soldiers from time to time. They say the Vikings spook them. They always remember to mention they discovered America before the Vikings. Sometimes, I think they speak to me because I am a Viking, too.
