    @TL DR

    I like it when the draft feature somehow fails to save a draft that I actually wanted to keep.

    Anyway, I had a long post written and then I closed the wrong browser window like an idiot and lost it.

    The gist is that I want to warn you about the money illusion. A naive argument like "in order to create debt, you have to create money" describes a situation in which the number of indebted dollars increases while the real value of those dollars decreases - you may owe the bank more money, but that money buys less stuff. It's like a fantasy RPG where your attack value increases along with the HP of the enemies so even though the numbers are bigger, nothing actually changes.

    If we assume that the primary driving force behind debt expansion is the Fed (it isn't, but this is just for the sake of argument), issuing money in the form of debt might cause the real value of that debt to increase, decrease, or stay the same - depending on the speed at which this is happening and the state of the economy.

    So we should be talking about the real value of debt - how much stuff (including labor time) would those dollars buy?

    But even that's not a complete picture. When discussing whether debt is reaching problem amounts, we're really interested in ratios - debt-to-income and debt-to-assets - and risks (are those assets likely to spoil?). $1000 in debt is a lot to somebody who only makes $15k a year and has no assets; it's peanuts to somebody who makes $150k a year and has $300k in his 401k. Similarly, if all of your assets are tied up in Research in Motion stock, then it's probably unwise for you to take out a lot of debt.

    When debt-to-asset and debt-to-income ratios get too high, then the risk of somebody defaulting increases. If we're talking about systems rather than individuals - say, a real estate market where banks have issued risky mortgages and then other agencies have lied about the stability of those mortgages to sell stakes in those mortgages - then a lot of risky debt failing at one time can cause a cascade of defaults.

    This sort of thing is why our popular conversation on the US national public debt is just straight dumb. "We're $17T in debt! BIG NUMBERS! SCARY!" Okay, whatever, what is that in debt-to-GDP ratio? (I'll save you the googling - it's 102%.)

    That said, a question like "how high is too high" is something I'm really really really not qualified to answer. I can tell you how a ratio looks historically, or in comparison to other entities... but when start talking about things like global overall debt-to-GDP, I'm out of my league.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    just beat the priest in hearthstone... never picked it up after doing the first 2-3 matches a month or so ago. maybe 2 weeks.

    I was bummed that I don't really like the shaman. currently feeling priest/paladin/mage just from what I read in the OP of the G&T thread. druid looks interesting. we'll see. I think I said this last week when I installed it but at the least it's something I can play that's more laid back, good laptop game.

    And now it is time for me to spread the earworm disease


    Now it’s saturday morning and I want to sleep in, but the nextdoor neighbor’s dog is barking again.
    The wife and the kid been bugging me to go for a ride.
    But a week’s worth of work is piled up by now, and I’m expected to get it done somehow.
    Then I gotta find the time to do what they wanna do.
    Instead I pump iron.
    I push out another set. I pump iron. I got to work off all this sweat.
    You see but working out my muscles I’m relaxing my mind and after an hour or two I’ll find,
    my whole outlook on life is shiny and new.

    Just pictures of an event that was open to the public.
