MACHINEGUN GUNFIGHTING - December 8-9, 2007, Prescott, AZ

coderman: "The modern ground battlefield has been ruled by the machinegun since WWI. In this class we will discuss the history, applications and tactics of machinegunnery. We will spend the first day learning how to operate these weapons and manipulate them with the same skill we have for our own personal weapons."
coderman: "Then we will take that knowledge out to the range and spend the second day shooting various weapons and running through various machinegun drills."
coderman: "We will examine the PMK, the Kalashnikov of machineguns, the US military's M60, and the M1919 in .308."
coderman: "All ammunition is included in the class fee." -- aha, no wonder it's $1,500 !

Debt 'Conduits' Are Hovering Over Citigroup

coderman: <citi> suck a little harder plz!
coderman: "Though few investors realize it, banks such as Citigroup Inc. could find themselves burdened by affiliated investment vehicles that issue tens of billions of dollars in short-term debt known as commercial paper. The investment vehicles, known as "conduits" and SIVs, are designed to operate separately from the banks and off their balance sheets."
coderman: "Citigroup, for example, owns about 25% of the market for SIVs, representing nearly $100 billion of assets under management. The largest Citigroup SIV is Centauri Corp., which had $21 billion in outstanding debt as of February 2007, according to a Citigroup research report. There is no mention of Centauri in its 2006 annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission."
coderman: "Allowing a SIV to fail could sully the reputation of a bank that created it and even cause financial-system risks because investors might suddenly refrain from buying commercial paper from other conduits and SIVs."
coderman: "But if a bank mounted a rescue, it also would likely raise questions over why the bank didn't consolidate the vehicle in the first place, since it would be agreeing to bear losses associated with it."
coderman: ahh, catch-22. makes for a good plot in, "The Day The Market Fucked Me Raw, that October day in 2007"
