Off The Early Morning Wall
It's a little after six a.m., Christmas Eve morning, and I didn't sleep worth a flip last night. That's me over there, in my Snuggie, sitting at my computer about 2 minutes ago.
I've been reading some stuff that's been said by various Famous People about the SBC and about the GCRTF and what everyone is guessing is going to happen. And, I just commented on one website where there's a new post about the outlook for the SBC and it reminded me of an old joke.
There was this accountant who was an inveterate gambler. He'd gamble on most anything and was always on the lookout for "clues" as to what he ought to bet on.
This one morning he went on an assignment to an office, to conduct a routine monthly financial workup. He noted the address of the building was #555 5th Avenue. 5th floor. Office #55.
When he ran the trial balance and looked at the general ledger (or whatever it is they look at when they do that), all he saw was fives. Everywhere on the page.
He'd had enough. He ran downstairs and jumped into a cab .. and noted it was NYC Cab #5555 .. and rushed to Aqueduct Race Track, getting there just in time to place a bet on the 5th race. So, believing in fate, he cashed a check for everything in his account, and put every penny on horse #5. He then rushed to the rail just in time to watch the race, and particularly horse #5.
It came in 5th.
Just shows to go you .. sometimes you can study all the right information and still come to the wrong conclusion.
I got this feeling..........
