    Don't you think there is something a little absurd about the Dow Jones rallying 550 points over two days and ITIC making a new low today?

    The market is populated by lunatics.

    Hang on another month. I have t-bills that mature at the end of December and then I will become a 10% insider too.

    • pmlljl,
      The polar bear has growled for 37 tomorrow. You may get better deals when your t-bills mature, but I do not believe that it would be prudent or healthy for me to have him growling at me for an entire month.

    • pj:

      My broker says that if I want to sell short 500,000 sharesof ITIC that it will have to be what is known as a "naked sshort". That means that he can't arrange to borrow that much ITIC. Perhaps I can have my friends in the Cayman Islands print up some counterfeit shares. They are really good.

    • pmlljl,
      There is no need for anyone to be a naked short when fine ITIC share certificate blankets, quilts, comforters, shirts, and pants are available.

    • pj:

      I don't want to be pushy, but I would suggest that you may want to open a store in one of Las Vegas's new upscale shopping malls that would feature high quality fashionable clothing made exclusively of ITIC stock certificates. You could compete with Ralph Lauren's Polo stores.

      I imagine that your merchandise would be a little more than I could afford. Please advise me of how I could get a free T-shirt to try out.

    • pmlljl,
      We offer a free T-shirt to every client who makes a deposit in a certain modest minimum amount. Just let me know when you'll be dumping the Ben Franklins from your trunk as you drive through downtown Las Vegas. Remember to write "pj" on every bill and to select a calm day. The polar bear will be standing in the freeway shoulder on the bridge and will release your free T-shirt from his jaws once he believes that you have tossed enough hundreds over the edge. Be sure not to hit the polar bear. (You invalidate the offer if you strike the bear with your car.)

    • pj:

      I was afraid to get too close to the bear even in my car as I was certain that the bear was complicit in the disappearance of astral. But now that astral has resurfaced, I can put my fear safely aside. I don't know when I will get to LV again. Would you ask the bear if he will allow you to drive him to Orange County to make the pick up and deliver the free t-shirt. I would be willing to pay a reasonable amount for a delivery.

    • pmlljl,

      I ride the bear (bareback, Western style) when we go to Orange County. He cuts across the Mojave. It's much shorter than following I-15, and it saves gasoline (but does run up the bill for the penguins that he eats on the way).

      If he delivered the shirt, he would want you to feed him lots of fresh penguins to re-energize him for his trip home. Trust me when I say that you will not want to run out of penguins before he is full.
