What types of shares went up and what went down during the world cup in Germany. I heard from a source that the insurnace industry made the most money in Germany as people insured their businesses and I believ you could even insure your wife against soccer hooligans. I imagine this second part is bull, but what sectors were really effected?

The average cost of replacing the tablespoon of ink in a 17ml colour printer cartridge is pounds 29, making it sixteen times more expensive than vintage 1985 Dom Perignon Dom Perignon renowned vintage French champagne.

then there is this...decided this morning to take the shiney new rapid transit system from that new greenpoint stadium thing that looks like a dirty washing basket, into the new rapid transit system station at the old civic centre to pay my car licence, just so I wouldnt have to deal with them parking thugs. What I found out is the rapid transit thing will only run from there during matches. However the brand spanking new road from greenpoint to the waterfront has been closed off for the period of the fifa seige, and along with that... the brand new spanking new rapid transit system bus stop with automatic sliding doors in the centre of the road, requiring the new rapid buses to have doors on the wrong side for the unrapid ex transit system...is situated on the road that will be closed. My problem with this is that due to uncompetitive banks, I dont have a cheque book to post my licence application in, so in the same way as the printer ink, the banks are funding the parking irritants!
