    Pretty quick to assume we ain’t got internet access here in heaven, aintcha now boy? That way, we can watch youtube clips of your tsunami, collapsting economy, and invasion. Enjoy.

    Palo Alto is heaven? Who knew?

    “Down in the crowded bars,
    out for a good time,
    Can’t wait to tell you all,
    what it’s like up there
    And they called it paradise
    I don’t know why
    Somebody laid the mountains low
    while the town got high

    Then the chilly winds blew down
    Across the desert
    through the canyons of the coast, to
    the Malibu
    Where the pretty people play,
    hungry for power
    to light their neon way
    and give them things to do

    Some rich men came and raped the land,
    Nobody caught ’em
    Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus,
    people bought ’em
    And they called it paradise
    The place to be
    They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea”

    Dang, that guy’s website just keeps going and going. It looks like he has revised his estimate to “fall 2009” (meaning the new deadline is Dec 21), from Sept 23, from sometime in July.

    I won an online bet against a guy like this, who forecasted $5/gal gas by the 4th of July. He was a rare one, and actually came through with his end of the deal – which was to do an online version of dancing around in a pink tutu singing “I’m a little teapot”. (My end of the deal was a promise to sit through any 3 youtube videos of his choice with an open mind.)

    So much good fervor got wasted about the October crash. My 401K is up 16% in the last 12 months, how about you?

    IRR of -19% for the last 12 months. Not a disaster. Not even officially a “bear” at this point.
