PostSubject: Insomniac/Nighthawk thread   Thu Apr 03, 2008 8:14 am

I thought I would start this thread for posters who find themselves at the laptop for whatever reason between the hours of two and six a.m. and who are tempted to disrupt the focused and coherent quality of the threads on this site with their night time thoughts.

Oh dear. Mind gone blank. Perhaps will go back to sleep for an hour.

well cf, i guess i'll quickly post here before crashing. Just me and EVM online and I've just discovered the world map on "who's online" part of the site. Cool

It's interesting to read which country names are listed and see where usernames are located.
Now, I should prob. post this under Business and Finance as a query for Youngdan ... but Kazakhstan (and yes, I'm sure I've misspelt that!) reminds me of a company I keep meaning to google - on the Guardian's daily "Top 100 shares", I have been monitoring a company called Kazakhmys ... one of a minority of co.s with + figures over the last few weeks, though went -4 on Wed. 2nd. Apr. No idea who they are. Must google this lot tomorrow (later today) when I have time.

Didn't Elizabeth Bishop have a poem about Insomnia? Must dig it out, can barely rem it.

I know nothing about that company Atticus and the way my fortunes have been of late I would question whether I know anything at all. There may be a ton of minerals back there but there is certainly a sparsity of honest men. The markets were up today in London ,Dublin and NY were up today despite the fact that the news was terrible. Everyone believes the central banks can and will make sure everything is fine and dandy. These are not normal times. Copper prices are almost at an all time high when it should be dropping with a recession at hand. I would not risk too much in this gamble. I see rio tinto was up 4.6% in London today. If copper continues to rise a big company is the way to go. I don't follow riotinto as my favourite mining stock is Hecla Mining.

Copper over the last 10 years.

Don't seem to be able to link it properly you need to go to this page and make your own request. Copper is well off peak value.

Someone rang me to talk about an essay, at 1.15 this morning. The 7th century Umayadd desert baths in Jordan - secret romanesqe islamic palaces for bathing and feasting when out hunting with Bedouin friends: walls adorned with frescoes, contradictory to edict, of flora, fauna, and beautiful naked dancing girls. The Umayadd swept all before them around the Mediterranean for a hundred years, from the Visigoths to the Caesar in Constantinople, before they were overwhelmed by others and disappeared. Very little sleep after that, and interesting dreams.

Here's the poem Atticus -

Insomnia

The moon in the bureau mirror
looks out a million miles
(and perhaps with pride, at herself,
but she never, never smiles)
far and away beyond sleep, or
perhaps she's a daytime sleeper.

By the Universe deserted,
she'd tell it to go to hell,
and she'd find a body of water,
or a mirror, on which to dwell.
So wrap up care in a cobweb
and drop it down the well

into that world inverted
where left is always right,
where the shadows are really the body,
where we stay awake all night,
where the heavens are shallow as the sea
is now deep, and you love me.

Weil es zu viel weit gegeben hat, fingerpoken weitergehen und jetzt wünscht es no more von ihm, or words to that effect.
