Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

So when you have no benchmark then you can fudge the numbers any way you want to. Sounds like right up your alley.  :P :)
The other option is to be consistent and say it is not indicative either way. Even if the market was able to be used as an indicator I do think the goalposts would be better from election day to election day. It is possible that the period from convention to election is too unclear to be attributed either way and should always be ignored.

If you have no benchmark, then there are no numbers to fudge.

If you have benchmarks with asterisks, you have a chance at accurate analysis, but yes, it is subject to bias.

Having immovable benchmarks (goalposts) would be great for betting, but not for accurate analysis.

Don't be silly. Don't you know that Obama is responsible for AAPL, the largest company in the world, for increasing its market cap 1100% under his reign? Obama actually invented the iPhone and iPad himself. Don't forget that Obama came to Mark Zuckerberg in a dream instructing him how to create Facebook so there would be hundreds of billions of dollars added to the market. Obama also bravely used a time machine to tell Jeff Bezos the idea of starting an online shop.

That is all to the credit of Al Gore for inventing the internet.

Outrage Dilution

1 outrage out of 3 headlines in a week: Bad Persuasion
25 outrages out of 25 headlines in a week: Excellent Persuasion
At the moment there are so many outrages, executive orders, protests, and controversies that none of them can get enough oxygen in our brains. I canít obsess about problem X because the rest of the alphabet is coming at me at the same time.

Keep laughing.

1. The numbers are provided by the US government

2. These stats (labor force participation) weren't tracked during the Great Depression so I'm curious how you know the numbers were better during that period

You sound dumb when you keep spewing your goal posts and alternative facts line. Something you switch off between each post.

It could be around there. But to use a number based on people collecting unemployment is seriously useless.

Who is using a number based on people collecting unemployment? The unemployment rate is not based on that at all.
