Are you aware that the bias in every snippet of zerohedge quote you post is sensationalist and hysterical?
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Two Houston Police Officers Kill Gunman Who Aimed At Cops While Obama Tries To Talk Down Social Divide

According to ACB13, two Houston officers shot and killed an armed man on the city's south side early this morning. Police says the officers involved were wearing body cameras and they each fired multiple shots.

Houston Police Department officials say the shooting happened on Cullen near Ward around 12:40am. Officers say they saw a man with a revolver standing in the road. There were two officers in one vehicle and they asked the man to put the revolver down. Police say a witness also asked him to drop the weapon. Officers say instead of dropping the gun, the man raised his weapon pointing it in the air. He then lowered it and pointed it at the two officers.

really strikes me that this happened in the city that assassinated JFK by a gunman named Micah X Johnson, US Army. http://heavy.com/news/2016/07/micah-xavier-x-johnson-dallas-police-shooting-sniper-gunman-shooter-suspect-name-identified-photos-facebook-video/

It reminds me of Malcom X and his Ballot or the Bullet philosophy. It reminds me of unfinished and unresolved issues from the 60s civil rights era coming back to life in an altered state.
"altered state" as in "modified" or as in "tripping balls"?

Hold on... They had him holed up, trapped with nowhere to go, and no one was in immediate danger... so they just up and killed him?


Dude, we have been doing that since the 70s, that's why you (almost) never hear about jetliner hijackings in the US.

I've been hearing about them incessantly for the past 15 years

I appreciate the way ZeroHedge shamelessly shills for Putin, and American conspiracy theorists and rightwingers (increasingly the same thing) eat it up like morons.

What do you appreciate most about ZeroHedge?

May favorite thing about ZEROHEDGE is it is filled with Gold bugs and they just don't know when to stop whining.

This is great because it's a clear and precise signal that anyone can understand: these people know nothing of value.

I think that what I appreciate the most is that its owner is trying to astroturf forums and improve their search positioning by pretending that posting links to it over and over again is somehow relevant to any conversation on PD.

I don't know what the Tylers did but Zero Hedge has really taken a turn for the worse. Most of the "articles" consist of a lot of low-hanging fruit combined with links to blogs that specialize in doom porn. It feels like I'm reading a tabloid than a fun but insightful non-mainstream news site. Not only that, but it seems like Zero Hedge has abandoned a lot of their libertarian principles to pander to the populist neocons that flooded the site.

I had plans for this evening. I really did. But then Zero Hedge has gone out of their way to be so fabulously wrong about how the world works I had to take a break to refute their latest attack of nonsense.

Note, the last time I wrote about Zero Hedge it attracted a lot of unwanted attention for them because it pointed out, fairly clearly, that they were basing their conclusions — that there are millions of unsold cars — on old pictures from an old story and, I don't know, massive doses of peyote.

If you still think after today that Zero Hedge is a reputable source for economic analysis, you are no progressive.  You are a Ron Paul gold standard austerity-loving lunatic.

ZeroHedge, perhaps the greatest merchant of misinformation on silver in the world is at it again with a post today entitled “Physical Silver Surges to Record 30% Premium over Spot, In Backwardation”. As one who deals in precious metals on a day-to-day basis, that was news to me. Today I was seeing 100oz bars trading for less than 4% over spot, maple leaf and phils for 8.5% over and eagles for 11%. That’s retail - size transactions would be at a discount to those prices. If one were interested in junk or scrap silver, the price would be even less. Silverware can be had at spot and junk silver coins at slightly under spot - all at any size. Likewise, exchanges for physical (EFP) can be had at a slight DISCOUNT. That is, one could trade their futures for physical at a price lower than contract.

Yeah. If someone were to happen upon this thread when googling anything in the zerohedge links, it would just be full of people going "LOL SHIT SOURCE STOP SPAM NEWB." And that's terrible advertising.

I think we should edit every ZeroHedge link he posted to appear to be a ZeroHedge link, but actually be a hyperlink to goatse and/or midget porn. Eventually, the specific minority of people who will continue to google zerohedge after arriving in this thread will be of a particular sexual aberrance, essentially flooding their site with High Weirdness™.

This sounds like a winning strategy. Or, edit them to link to the RationalWiki page on Zerohedge. At least it's actually informational, unlike Zerohedge.
