fiddling while Rome...

It feels peculiar posting anything at all, why bother to link when everyone can go straight to the sources themselves, why bother to say anything when better-informed people have so much to say, but how strange not to say anything when this may actually be the worst crash since 1929. Lehman Brothers down the tubes, Merrill swallowed up the same day, AIG rescued by the Fed, HBOS needs a takeover, now Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley are in the line of fire... Deborah Hargreaves of the Guardian says

The central banks have pumped in billions of dollars worth of money today, over $210 billion worth of money has gone into the financial system and yet no one wants to lend at all


Why we should all be taught bartending, lockpicking and bicycle maintenance at school.

Just found out about a place called "Regebogen" in Kreuzberg- it has a DIY Fahrradwerkstatt open to the public for a small fee, apparently they have dozens of bikes which you can also use to build your own for €50- pretty neat.
