Icelandic Penny-Pinchers, pay attention! apríl 22, 2006

In the past weeks, the Icelandic Kronur (ISK) and Icelandic stock prices crashed down. I'd like to say some profound things about the reasons for that, but in fact, this motherfucking stocket market is a closed book to me. So, you can instead look at these interesting websites which deal with this issue:

The last link is particularly interesting. After 2 hours of looking at the fine painting and some serious investigation, I combined that this chart is kind of showing the amount of ISK you get for one Euro….BAM! ZORK! CRASH!

As you can imagine, I immediately went to my local bank to change a huge amount of Euros into ISK. They laughed at me. They didn't have ISK in stock!—IN STOCK! DAMNIT!

I started crying.

Most likely, there were some cormorant millionaires who wanted to get millions of ISK and bought everything the bank had! Bastards! They will pay for it! I am going to steal more ISK than they will ever be able to buy!!

So: if you want to change Euros into ISK, make sure there are no millionaires around you who can ruin your deal! You can identify them by a monocle and a cylinder. In many cases, they can be seen lighting their cigars with bank notes. The only way to kill them is the good old staking.

Staking action

So much for that. Must go carving wood.
