Bill Nye, Planetary Society CEO: Next Friday, the 15th of February […] This asteroid is about the same size as the one that made the crater in Meteor Crater, Arizona — as the one that created the Tunguska event in Siberia in 1908.

The use for unmanned drones increases every day. This time it’s to keep an eye on the beaches of Queensland, Australia to look out for swimmers in trouble — and, of course, any sharks lurking too close.

TAMPA — Tampa police say patience paid off as a cat-and-mouse game with protesters failed to result in a single arrest outside the Republican National Convention on Wednesday night.

So, there really is no problem with raising rates, tightening monetary policy, slowing the economy, reducing inflation, at the appropriate time.” He failed to mention that the Fed doesn’t have the will to drain money from the system, without which all [...]

Why are people panicking as their courtyards fill with “mysterious blood redrain“?
Did Nostradamus and others predict “rain like blood”?
Has this happened before?
What causes the red color in the mysterious rain?
Is it caused by an unidentified life form?
Could dust from a meteor affect an area more than a decade later?
Is all this just coincidence?
On Thursday, July 5, 2012, around 6:50 p.m. local time, a mysterious red rain shower fell for about 15 minutes [...]

I lost a lot of respect for CNN when they aired this with the title “Representative quotes Bible verses” as if his anger was due to some religious fundamentalism. Stupid sensationalism. But yeah props for this guy. I especially love how he punched the bill in mid-air as it came back down haha.
There are those who remember that back in February 2010, before the world realized just how broke Greece was, the public’s deplorably short attention span was briefly focused on none other than Goldman Sachs, which as so often happens, was at the heart of the scheme enabling Greece to skirt by Maastricht regulations and mask the fact that its debt and deficits were both far worse than represented publicly.

Presented with little comment – except the irony is simply too much to bear as BATS crashes from $15.75 to $0.038 in minutes…perhaps reflecting the WSJ article on HFT abuse and that BATS is being investigated for HFT abuse (ahem) on the day it goes public. We note that there were some trades executed at $0.00! The reason for the crash apparently is because BATS stock is ony trading on the BATS exchange, where apparently [...]

While Marc Faber shares the usual stock of insightful market commentary, together with timing inflection points, and extended thoughts in the attached Bloomberg TV clip, it is the fact that he has officially joined Bill Gross, and so many others, in supporting the candidacy of Ron Paul as president.

There is a sense of incredulousness regarding the recent price action. The market seems to levitate day in and day out despite the news. Dips are limited to 15 minutes of intra-day action. Volume? We don’t need no stinking volume. From this observer’s vantage point, it just doesn’t smell right, but who am I to argue with the market? Since the low on October 4, the SP500 has traveled 20%. [...]

Remember the below chart which we are so fond of posting on Zero Hedge occasionally? Well, it will have to be redone very soon, because the SEC has just submitted a proposal for public comment to cut market-wide circuit breakers in half from the current thresholds of 10%, 20% and 30%, by 33%. And if the SEC is actually proactively looking at something such as [...]
