A clip of Warren Buffet and a clip of WB and Charlie Munger, talking 'bout shit.
I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. Who knows whether that person will be wise or foolish? Yet they will have control over all the fruit of my toil into which I have poured my effort and skill under the sun. This too is meaningless. . . Nothing is better for a man than to eat and drink and enjoy his work.

One of my favorite mashups:

* Gresham's Law: Bad behavior drives out good.
* Gresham's corollary: Avoid participating in systems where good behavior cannot win.

Poor Nine Inch Nails. :-)

Here's an eagle owl coming in for a landing. (22 seconds).

It was linked by a Washington Post article describing how crows plague the Kremlin: picking the gold leaf off domes, harrassing tourists, and even stealing classified papers to build a nest. So the Kremlin has some falcons and an eagle owl in its employ to frighten the crows away.

If I saw these wings and talons coming at me, I'd be frightened.
