So … the way I am seeing me, is that I get the bulk of my automatically dosed internal chemical stimulations via what, from the exterior, would be seem to be `getting` classical references.
I acknowledge the receipt of quantities of common-reference `gets` … but am pretty sure the classical ones have much more punch.
I think it possible, that the brian runs on `gets`.
Automatically dosed internal chemical stimulations for each `get`.
The child has a major `get` when visual mommy coalesces into a singular concept … and will get minor `gets` every time the concept is subsequently evoked.
Life becomes `getting` (and re-getting).
TGE has a capital grumble
Banks have many ways to raise capital in functioning markets, and even in relatively dysfunctional markets. Even in 2007, if memory serves me right (there was a Bloomberg.com article on this I can’t find right now, I welcome a source), banks raised something like a trillion dollars of new equity, in order to cover losses in their asset positions. When buyers come and take over a bank, that is an equity injection. Lehman itself was poised to be bought in this way, until UK regulators nixed the deal. Banks can reduce dividend payments, which increases the value of equity, or big payouts to senior employees. If banks aren’t lending, in a functional regulatory market (not ours) new banks can IPO and take over their business. In two weeks, in the middle of a crisis? Maybe not. In five years?
I bet bankers really love using the word `capital` (big buzz) … because they know it just totally fucks with people’s heads.
