Oh, wow, leo.org gives me 14 different translations for "erbärmlich": http://dict.leo.org/ende?lp=ende&lan...rb%C3%A4rmlich

For the native speakers here: Which one do you think is the most suitable?

IF I had some credible piece of information which could result in financial benefit, you really think I would share it with you and everyone else?

Unless I have already invested in something and want to create a demand for it so I can sell it off at a higher price?!

Heard you are a Psychiatrist? Given your understanding of financial markets and human psychology, if I were you I would stay off investing and if I was NOT you, I would be concerned to get any kind of medical advise from you.
It is true that the return on investment for psychiatry is mediocre compared to that of the financial branch, but that is only because members of the latter group do not consult more often practitioners of the former. Helping traders and investors understand certain events of their early childhood as well as their desire to compensate perceived physical shortcomings (often an overbite, excess weight and/or an undersized appendage) through spending binges on the stock market would avoid most problems the world economy is facing today.

Despite those truths known to the profession, I hold no grudges against financiers, wannabes and experienced alike, and I waive my initial fees for you, Mr Wasted. The Doctor is IN.

Why? The German BND has a track record of complete failure. Not in the pig's bay scale that people really get hurt but in the "I make a complete idiot of myself and my country" way...

My personal favourite took place in the 90s: The BND wants to prove that there is a global market for nuclear weapon technology since the iron curtain came down and Russia was in a crisis. Fair enough.

Hiring some Columbian to buy weapon grade enriched Plutonium 239 and enough Lithium 6 for a hydrogene bomb is quite questionable. Putting him on a Lufthansa passenger plane with the stuff is outright idiotic - and having news reporter finding out about it... (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plutonium-Affäre)

P.S: The CIA has it's senior analyst who managed to locate Bin Laden exposed - based on an official white house press photo... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/0..._n_896529.html
The Bin Laden affair was pretty much same the Plutonium Affair. Apart from Pakistan Military academy, CIA's secret head office was also on the same road as alleged Bin Laden's compound. Which was then leaked by the ISI, as revenge for the unilateral US action and also the identity of the head of CIA in Pak, a week after the whole thing.

Sounds like a good offer; I heard that even the sheep were disappointed......

In short, you mean gambling habits or instincts? Makes me think you waste your finances as much as your words?

To elaborate more, reckless traders are driven by the following:

1) Superiority complex or contempt for the masses.
2) Greed and short sightedness mixed with selfishness.
3) High risk apetite. Their mental faculties do not allow them to perceive risk as others would, same as people who do extreme sports.

I'll waive all my fees for you, in the name of charity, as long as you sign to donate it to the Charity of my recommendation and tick the box for Tax credit too.

Actually Katla seems pretty quiet at the moment; you can see the seismic activity on line here

we'll see soon. the germans seem to be worrying...
Quote:
"Playing poker is part of politics, as is theatrical posturing. That's fair enough. But what America is currently exhibiting is the worst kind of absurd theatrics. And the whole world is being held hostage.
"Irrespective of what the correct fiscal and economic policy should be for the most powerful country on earth, it's simply not possible to stop taking on new debt overnight. Most importantly, the Republicans have turned a dispute over a technicality into a religious war, which no longer has any relation to a reasonable dispute between the elected government and the opposition."
"If it continues like this, the US will be bankrupt within a few days. It would cause a global shockwave like the one which followed the Lehman bankruptcy in 2008, which triggered the worst economic crisis since the war. Except it would be much worse than the Lehman bankruptcy. The political climate in the US has been poisoned to a degree that is hard for us (Germans) to imagine. But we should all fear the consequences."
