What's it called if it's a 20 story building?

My point is, shit happens and it's nothing to joke about. I got home at four in the morning from the hospital and it is sad that people can do this to themselves.

Like you guy's O LIVE THE SHIT but reality is a one person thing

For EVERYBODY it is reality. And coping mechanisms vary from person to person. Many use black humor [not to be confused with humor about blacks]. Others are not able to do that and cope differently. To each their own.

The absurdity of the financial situation is what folks find the humor in, not that folks are at the end of their rope [oops]

Bear is right, the domino effect will affect those far removed from the stock market as one domino topples, it triggers the next, and so on.

If you did not have Isreal intervention - would you have a Wall street?

Make that the Dutch, the British and Indians (Native Americans). Without them, there would have been no Wall Street.

What if the NYSE was built on Beaver Street, only a few little blocks down? Would anyone take The Beaver Street Journal seriously?

Rupert Murdoch, with his bad taste, would have bought the paper (not just a copy, but the whole operation) anyway.
