I've come to realize, some years ago that there is nothing good about a boom and a recession isn't all that bad. Maybe the opposite.
Consider:

 Boom times:
    * Everything gets more expensive
     * Real estate goes into the stratosphere
      * Everyone has jobs
     

Recession:

   * Sales sales sales on everything - including real estate
    * Deals everywhere on things.

Just yesterday Ebay had a 20% off on everything sale. To stimulate the economy. You know why? 'cause people ain't buying.

Anytime you see massive sales on things, you know a recession is either right here, right now or just around the corner

I don't know how people keep up with all the various movies, I cannot keep up with Netflix. And I have amazon prime and cable.
I never watch cable.

I know my ex browses my fb page. I do not want to *hide* a statement, I am not talking about all these digital tricks, but obscure, Kinda like you have to look at it for 2 minutes to begin to see it. Hidden within some other design would be the words, the letters. Perhaps something short.

But not immediately "jump at you"

You get my vibe, I hope.

Now  something different.

Typical rusky humor. As the proverb goes, your life is a series of stripes. The dark alternates with the light ad infinitum.

The caption reads: Are you in the dark stripe of life?  Maybe in 6 months it will seem light in comparison.

The whole vibe to it is very IT-ish.

It's the series about the Unabomb set in the mid 90's of course. (Note the correct spelling, later changed by Media to Unabomber)

But that's not what I am writing about. I am writing about the hazardous work conditions for the contractor, the linguistics guy who was analyzing the manifesto. Good God, it's just like IT.  I think the show nailed it to a "T".  They tell him he is a piece of sheet every other day and replaceable, and even after he cracks they case, they are skeptical.

The irony of it all he goes living in the woods after catching the Unabomb (minus the bombs)

Plus tons of linguistics, which I love.

Watch it!!!

I think the real situation is far worse than being admitted on the forums, or anywhere. Aside from a few hotspots like DC.
That's what the Federal Reserve and United Way reports referenced in the Post article say.  I've read about the large number of people who can't handle an unexpected $400 bill for a couple of years now.  It's hard to believe, but that's what the Fed is tracking:

Quote
One of the most widely watched statistics in the Fed's “Report on the Economic Well-being of U.S. Households” is how many adults say they could cover an unexpected $400 expense. When the survey was released for the first time in 2013, half of those surveyed said they didn't have enough savings to cover an emergency expense of a few hundred dollars.

Today that has fallen to 40 percent, a figure that is better but still troubling to many economists. It means nearly 48 million households aren't saving or are unable to save.

I.e. their cash flow is a net <= 0 and they have no way of borrowing money.


Yes and that is the proverbial canary in the coal mine?
