I love it when you guys talk in code I don't understand.

FWIW, it seems that economic bubbles and economic recessions both suffer
from the same human fralety.  In both cases people construct logical
modalities of analysis of financial relaities based on completely false
accesments driven by their emotional distortions.

I wish I was a good enough coder to sit down all day and collect money
to fix bugs on Free Software.  There is nothing like getting paid for
your labor to allow a smile at the end of a long week.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attached at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt.  I guess you missed that one."
