Building Manager - Role Playing Game Fan?

A sign in the elevator of my apartment building momentarily threw me for a loop:

"...As stated in the tenancy agreement, neither the tenant nor the tenant's quest shall disturb the other tenants due to loud conversation, music or other noise..."

Yeah, that's all I got this week. In Politics our 'Conservative' government led the charge to restart a nuclear reactor over the objections of the nuclear safety regulator. In Economics, many of the largest financial institutions in the world are relying on cash infusions from anyone who has some around, from oil sheiks to Chinese government funds, so that they have enough capital to keep functioning, and the Central Banks are doing everything but dropping money from helicopters trying to get enough cash into the financial system to get it moving again. Meanwhile, in the Arts, the only new TV show I liked ('Journeyman') was predictably the first one cancelled due to low ratings. But mainly I've been focussed on trying to get a high score on this addictive geography test flash game. Go on, ask me where Bouvet Island is...


  • Free Market solutions solve everything! It's the invisible hand of the... er... Let's make that the extremely visible hand of the federal Chinese bank...

    The Free Market dictates that the Chinese shall rule all!

    All Hail our lords and masters! And Milton Friedman!

  • Er, where's Bouvet Island?

  • Bouvet Island is about halfway from Cape Town to Antarctica, in a South by Southwesterly direction. The tricky part is that it is owned by Norway.

    I believe it used to be owned by the English but they suckered the Norwegians into paying $10 bucks for it when they put it up on ebay a few years ago.
