Submission + - Hidden Message from Weather Service

Holistic Missile writes: CNN Reports a hidden message from the folks working (without paychecks) at the NWS in Anchorage:

"Sometimes, it pays to read between the lines. At least that may be the message --and, more accurately, the hope — of workers at the National Weather Service office in Anchorage, Alaska.

The message can be found in an official forecast put out at 5 a.m. (9 a.m. ET) that seems, at first glance, routine with its discussion of air pressure, wind speeds and weather systems.

But if you line up the first letters of each word from top-to-bottom in the forecast, under the heading "Analysis and Upper levels," there's something else there: P-L-E-A-S-E-P-A-Y-U-S...."

The text of the forecast is on their web page. Some of the comments in the story's discussion are rather interesting, including a few people sending their own similar messages.

Submission + - Facebook Stock Dips Below $20, closes at $20.04 (huffingtonpost.com)

Holistic Missile writes: The Huffington Post reports that Facebook's stock dropped to barely over half of its IPO value today:
'...The stock hit a low of $19.82 in heavy trading on Thursday afternoon. It has now lost almost half its value since debuting at $38 in May in the largest IPO ever to emerge from Silicon Valley...'
Hopefully, most of us here were able to talk everyone we know out of buying the stock in May, despite the hype.
