I’M NOT MAKING THIS UP

Until now I thought that Paul Krugman was a sesquipedalian idiot.

I was wrong! He is just insane!

The only way for an earthquake to cause economic growth is to find Paul Krugman between its casualties.

FLY KULULA

August 20, 2011

Kulula is an African airline with its head office
located in Johannesburg. Kulula airline attendants make an effort to make the
in-flight safety lecture and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are
some real examples that have been heard or reported:

1. On a flight with a very “senior” flight
attendant crew, the pilot said, “Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve reached cruising
altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and
to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants.”

2. On landing, a stewardess said, “Please be sure
to take all of your belongings. If you’re going to leave anything, please make
sure it’s something we’d like to have.”

3. “There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but
there are only 4 ways out of this airplane.”

4. As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at
Durban Airport , a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: “Whoa, big fella.
Whoa!

5. After a particularly rough landing during
thunderstorms in the Karoo, a flight attendant announced, “Please take care when
opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as
hell everything has shifted.”

6. From a Kulula employee: “Welcome aboard Kulula
271 to Port Elizabeth. To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the
buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seat belt; and if you
don’t know how to operate one, you probably shouldn’t be out in public
unsupervised.”

7. “In the event of a sudden loss of cabin
pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask,
and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure
your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one
small child, pick your favorite.”

8. “Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with
some broken clouds, but we’ll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank
you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Kulula
Airlines.”

9. “Your seat cushions can be used for flotation;
and in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take
them with our compliments.”

10. “As you exit the plane, make sure to gather
all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among
the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses.”

11. From a pilot during his welcome message:
“Kulula Airlines is pleased to announce that we have some of the best flight
attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!”

12. On a Kulula flight into Cape Town on a
particularly windy and bumpy day, the captain really had to fight during the
final approach. After an extremely hard landing, the flight attendant said,
“Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to The Mother City. Please remain in your seats
with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what’s left of our
airplane to the gate!”

13. Another flight attendant’s comment on a
less-than-perfect landing: “We ask you to please remain seated as Captain
Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal.”

14. An airline pilot wrote that on this particular
flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a
policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the
passengers exited, smile, and give them a “Thanks for flying our airline.” He
said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the
passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment.

Finally, everyone had gotten off except for a
little old lady walking with a cane. She said, “Sir, do you mind if I ask you a
question?”

“Why, no, ma’am,” said the pilot. “What is
it?”

The little old lady said, “Did we land, or were we
shot down?”

15. After a real crusher of a landing in
Johannesburg , the attendant came on with, “Ladies and gentlemen, please remain
in your seats until Captain Crash and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a
screeching halt against the gate. And once the tire smoke has cleared and the
warning bells are silenced, we will open the door and you can pick your way
through the wreckage to the terminal.”

SIGN OF TIMES

August 19, 2011

Until the fall of 2008 it used to be that when the Gold/XAU ratio reached 5.5 you did want to buy gold mining shares.

It’s not so anymore ……

Anyway, boys, prudence is a good thing and there are a lot of incompetence and scam in the gold mining world, but don’t forget that with the current gold price quality gold mining shares are making A LOT of money.
