    The dollar is crushing it, and the number of jobs being created are just wild. Have you guys noticed any difference the past year?

    Just last year, 1USD = under 6kr. Today it's fucking 8.5+kr for a dollar. Unemployment is rising here, and our money is worth a lot less. Meanwhile day after day the US is releasing overwhelmingly positive financial numbers...and it sucks for the rest of the world.

    Shiv, do a hostile takeover to a few prosperous companies and do what you do best - run them to the ground. Schmoop, open some franchise shops and restaurants and run them so badly you tarnish the entire chain name. Dawg, take over a fucking business and then let a gang of wild monkies control it while you occupy yourself with the presidential race & discussing it online.

    Im at school typing this btw and the fucking fire alarm has been blasting for 15 min in the background, it's just so fitting to the current global financial situation I'm bringing up :facepalm:

    Does it mean something different in Norway when the fire alarm goes off? Over here it means that there is a fire and you should leave.

    it went off earlier today and was nothing. When it went off again I walked outside, but after 20 min people went back in while it was still ringing. It's stopped now though.

    No. Being a balla is much better than being a busta.

    our export is oil, and the price of oil is in the fucking toilet. The American fracking revolution has also pretty much made our long-term prospects pretty grim. Our economy isn't diverse enough.

    Gary, quit worrying about global economics and worry about getting a damn degree.
