Re: Crisis of Credit Visualized Website

Great post thanks. Loved the way the 'responsible' home owners are thin and the bankers are not.  Wonder if that means anything?

Just finished watching Parts 1 and 2. I like the way they made the concept so understandable in such a relatively short space of time. Wonder if I can get my wife to sit down long enough to watch? Undecided

Yes!  Do, do!  Tell her "It's just like t.v.!"; Nice pictures and everything!

Here is a less exciting but much more factual video.

Re: Crisis of Credit Visualized Website

I struggle getting my wife to "sit down" to digest any of the facts. Last night my tactic was to mute the commercials during her TV show and turn the volume up on my laptop which was playing the CM 4 Myths podcast.  I am hoping that some of it will seap in if she hears it enough in the background. :-)

Too funny!  So?  Did she notice?

For one brief moment I thought that I had her hooked in.  Then she got up and decided to use the commercials to clean the kitchen.  That should teach me.  If I would have cleaned the kitchen myself, I might have had her.

Re: Crisis of Credit Visualized Website

No offense, but I too think there is a tendency for the man of the house to be more tuned into this stuff than the woman of the house.  Clearly this is not always the case as there are a number of women who are really into this stuff and contributing to this site.  I think men are hard-wired to take on the role of protector.  If it isn't sabre-tooth tigers it is economic collapse.

Better duck Lemon

Mrs. Dogs is gonna holler at you...............

Although I do agree to an extent - in our case I took over as the he man protector once she told me what I was protecting us from.  Cool

Re: Better duck Lemon

Dogs,

Mrs. Lemon protects me from social isolation.  She does a good job making sure our evenings and weekends are filled with lots of dates and activities with other families that I don't want to participate in.  But, she tells me, it's for my own good.  So I go.  Then I become the life of the party by telling them how they' should wake up and smell the coffee and prepare for economic collapse.  (This usally causes consternation.)

It's actually quite funny.  My wife listens to me up to a point.  Then she says, "Just cut to the chase!  Just tell me what's going to happen!"  When I tell her, "I don't know, but I think it's going to be bad" she usually walks out, turns on the TV and watches "The Biggest Loser" or "Extreme Makeover Home Edition."

Lemon,

You really don't want to go there!  You really don't... Sealed

Dogs,

If you think you agree in the least with Lemon, you might not want to come home tonight.

Tell her that there's a girl that's really, really interested in you and that you don't know how to blow her off.  Ask her for her adivce.  Then she'll be reading and investigating this site for sure!

I like this idea!  I just wish the men up in Washington would figure it out soon!
