I went to London and died
I booked myself in at the Y ... W.C.A.
I said : "I like it here - can I stay ?
I like it here - can I stay ?
Do you have a vacancy
For a Back-scrubber?"

Logistics you say?

I'll resell the crap in pounds. Keep the cash for now and convert it to $$$ a month when USD inevitably depreciates due the new S&P AA+ rating. Increased purchasing power parity for me.

History always repeats itself, said Hegel. But he forgot to add, commented Karl Marx, the first time as tragedy, the second as farce. What Marx meant in his essay The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte is that history does not repeat itself at all. It only appears to, because human imaginations cannot keep up with the speed of change, so they dress it in costumes borrowed from the past. It is not the 2011 rioters who are dressing in history's robes they appear to have modelled themselves more on recent zombie movies but commentators, who are reaching for analogies of 1980s socialists to attribute these troubles to familiar causes.
