tqft's Journal: Tired of the same old insults?

Journal by tqft

PJK - Paul Keating former prime minister of Australia quite gifted with words, is a master of insults. So anyway even though PJK is still with this, someone has ripped his style into iOS app so you can call the gum on your shoe better for your gait than a senator.
Shut up and give me your money the PJK Insults generator is AVAILABLE! â¦
If you ask an Android version you may well find out what it can generate.

PS: I am about a month behind reading journal entries. I have lost 2 weeks. Too busy applying for jobs.

If you laundered money for a drug cartel, your assets, possibly your family assets would be seized and sold. Why is HSBC so special?

LIBOR [if you don't know what LIBOR is read up on it so youare prepared when the SHTF]

" If you keep 6s [i.e. the six month JPY LIBOR rate] unchanged today ⦠I will fucking do one humongous deal with you ⦠Like a 50,000 buck deal, whatever ⦠I need you to keep it as low as possible ⦠if you do that â¦. Iâ(TM)ll pay you, you know, 50,000 dollars, 100,000 dollars⦠whatever you want."

A 50,000 buck deal here does not mean a $50,000 deal: it means a $50 billion deal. If the broker on such a deal siphons off a fee of 0.0001%, thatâ(TM)s $50,000 right there."
