February 16, 2010 – Comments (119) | RELATED TICKERS: V , BUD , TASR

But first, lets talk about home air purification systems.

 

Just kidding:)

Envision a world where the dollar and all other currencies are completely devauled.

What would be the world's solution. Gold you say. Perhaps for a short term period but theres not enough of it to make that the worlds currency. Gun's and Ammo would also run out. Canned goods these are all short term fixes.

No! the answer my freinds is Credits. We've all seen Star Wars, everything was bought with Credits.

So we must look to companies which are best positioned to make the leap to the new monetary policy. Who have the infrastructure and the know-how.

Visa

Yes Visa truly has the pulse of this transitionary phase in hand. So Visa it's everywhere you want to be.

This was a low point in my life, if you did not know me you might have diagnosed me as depressed.

The most serious problem was that the Cubs got swept in the playoffs.

The next problem weighing me down was that I had started investing in April mostly in Visa. I Think my Portfolio took a %40 hit.

Well I said to myself -self you could either wallow in your sorrows ( with an ice cold bud of course ) or you can pick yourself up, knock the dust off and buy more Visa and all the other companys you find cheap, And yes GE is a screaming buy at $6.66.

so I put my question in on U.L's blog. Then went to work on resarching the company. By late Saturday night I realized that this was not an investment that should be made.

Another season two episode, "Gnomes", revolves around a group of "underpants gnomes" who, as their name suggests, run a corporation stealing people's underpants. When asked about their business model, various gnomes reply that theirs is a three-step process: Phase 1 is "collect underpants". Phase 3 is "profit". However, the gnomes are unable to explain what is to occur between the first and final steps, and "Phase 2" is accompanied by a large question mark on their corporate flow chart. Especially in the context of politics and economics, "underpants gnomes" has been used by some commentators to characterize a conspicuous gap of logic or planning.

Let's say Buffett keels over tomorrow. I'm sure Berkshire would drop a fair amount. Perhaps ~10% intraday.

But at the end of the day even without Buffett it is still  a very good company, with a ton of wide moat assets and without an enormous premium. You might not want to buy it right now but it's not at all what I'd consider a safe short or even a short with an attractive risk/reward profile

Tasty what you say is true. Buffett and Munger are not immortal (at least to my knowledge) When that sad day comes I'm prepared to purchase the rest of my projected BRK-B holdings.

Can anyone tell me why TMF Changed the top pick feature from a $ sign to a checklist?

The $ made much more sense to me.

[edit] Spam targeting search engines (spamdexing)Main article: Spamdexing

Spamdexing (a portmanteau of spamming and indexing) refers to a practice on the World Wide Web of modifying HTML pages to increase the chances of them being placed high on search engine relevancy lists. These sites use "black hat search engine optimization techniques" to unfairly increase their rank in search engines. Many modern search engines modified their search algorithms to try to exclude web pages utilizing spamdexing tactics.

[edit] Blog, wiki, and guestbook spamMain article: Spam in blogs

Blog spam, or "blam" for short, is spamming on weblogs. In 2003, this type of spam took advantage of the open nature of comments in the blogging software Movable Type by repeatedly placing comments to various blog posts that provided nothing more than a link to the spammer's commercial web site.[6] Similar attacks are often performed against wikis and guestbooks, both of which accept user contributions.

[edit] Spam targeting video sharing sites

Video sharing sites, such as YouTube, are now being frequently targeted by spammers. The most common technique involves people (or spambots) posting links to sites, most likely pornographic or dealing with online dating, on the comments section of random videos or people's profiles.

Another frequently used technique is using bots to post messages on random users' profiles to a spam account's channel page, along with enticing text and images, usually of a sexually suggestive nature. These pages may include their own or other users' videos, again often suggestive. The main purpose of these accounts is to draw people to their link in the home page section of their profile.

YouTube has blocked the posting of links but people can still manage to get their message across by replacing all instances of a period with the word "dot." For instance, typing out example dot com instead of example.com bypasses the filter set in place. In addition, YouTube has implemented a CAPTCHA system that makes rapid posting of repeated comments much more difficult than before, because of abuse in the past by mass-spammers who would flood people's profiles with thousands of repetitive comments.

Yet another kind is actual video spam, giving the uploaded movie a name and description with a popular figure or event which is likely to draw attention, or within the video has a certain image timed to come up as the video's thumbnail image to mislead the viewer. The actual content of the video ends up being totally unrelated, a Rickroll, sometimes offensive, or just features on-screen text of a link to the site being promoted.[7]

Others may upload videos presented in an infomercial-like format selling their product which feature actors and paid testimonials, though the promoted product or service is of dubious quality and would likely not pass the scrutiny of a standards and practices department at a television station or cable network.

Can't TMF do some thing about this? I have'nt read other Fools thoughts for a few weeks now.

Steps:

1) Right click the image and click view image

2) Copy the code below into your blog

3) Copy the URL (ie the internet address, like http://google.com) of the picture

4) Paste the URL of the picture in the code in place of the http://mafaltti.googlepages.com/20080310w11f1.gif

5) make sure that the quotes around the URL are still there, it won't work otherwise

msft,

lol. just re-read the instructions.

Here is what you did:

Pic-you forgot to replace the link in the template text with the one of the picture that you wanted to insert. As a result you post the exact code from the template I made. To fix this:

4) Paste the URL of the picture in the code in place of the http://mafaltti.googlepages.com/20080310w11f1.gif

 

Video - you copied the URL, not the code. 

1) Most videos will have a button near the screen that says either Share or Embed. (Youtube's says and is located just below the video on the right hand side of the page). Click that button.

2) A string of code should appear. For youtube it starts with object width= . Highlight the whole code and copy it into your blog. That's it.
