Dirty Dick's is an outer banks NC crab house...I've seen the T-shirts -- "I got my crabs at Dirty Dick's"...they play the joke to the hilt.

and those with special market access of various kinds. I think it's more driven by the investment bank types than anything; I remember working at ATI and being told that to avoid insider trading charges, buy stock on a regular basis.

But the little tidbits on Netflix self-immolation should give you an idea of some of the kinds of shenanigans that go on. Somebody want to tell me what's *really* driving their CEO?

Peter Watts who contributed the memorable "manic laughter" to the Dark Side of the Moon is Naomi Watts' father. Sometimes I wish I had time to read Wikipedia all day long...

After several years of receiving occasional amber alerts from http://aurorawatch.lancs.ac.uk/ I came down this morning to find a red alert, 'aurora visible though-out UK'. I was obviously too late and, needless to say, it had been raining all night anyway.

Then there is the airport one mile to the north.
