If you have 50 minutes or so, this is a good video about the British and war in Iraq.

The 1917 war in Iraq and it's similarity's to the 2002 war..
Bremmner, Bird and Fortune are classic satirist from way back.

There's a few 'British references' you might not understand, but otherwise excellent entertainment. And it's too true, too true.

Well done, indeed!

That's about among the finest 'funny stuff' I have seen lately....

I like it. Very inspiring.

'The City of London' is considered the high enclave of the world's 'High Finance'.

There is a website showing the financial turnover that runs through their systems on a daily basis. It's larger than live.

I have never been on the trading floor at the NY stock exchange, but I have been to UBS's which is in Stamford CT. Supposidly outside of NY its one of the largest, and its massive. Its amazing walking the floor you can actualy feel the energy, tickers are all over the walls, clocks keep track of every time zone around the globe. As different markets come online it gets even more nuts.

I tried the trading business with a small investment firm, about 20 years ago.
Luckily I got out before everybody else was arrested and the place closed down.
I have seen the stock market floor in Munich when I was very young. All I remember is, I kept on wondering why everybody was yelling like crazy...
