Well, it's just 2 sleeps and maybe a nap from the Superbowl. The NFL experts are running about 70% in picking the Giants to win. I am already getting nervous. This is the Big Show.
Today was not the kind of panic buying I have seen after big market routs like the ones over the summer and in November. Still, it was pretty aggressive buying of anything not nailed down. Miss earnings? Go up 10%. Chinese burrito with accounting questions? Why not a 20% ride higher? Short squeezes are all the calls, but you have to explain to me who stays short losing massive %'s? Either the short thesis is wrong or the shorts are short from much higher prices.
In any case, no need to recap my stocks, everything was up. AREX and WTS worked well and BANR finally struggled past the $20 mark. I held all three going into the weekend and that may end up being a bad idea. We shall see. Sentiment is running very hot and it would be best for staying constructive to cool off the jets next week.
Friday Night Entertainment
I am sure most will be very happy tonight anyway, but here is my contribution going into the weekend.
Lake Vostok to be Tapped?
I have mentioned the sub glacial Lake Vostok many times here on the blog. It seems the time has come to actually get down there and really take a look at the underground ocean:
Lake Vostok, Antarctica's Largest Subglacial Body Of Water, Soon To Be Explored
Again, the ultra oxygen environment the lake is in will have pressed any life forms in the water to have new and unknown antioxidative protections systems to be able to survive. Oxidative damage is a huge part of many health problems. I know there are risks to doing this, but the potential discovery outweighs that risk in my mind. Besides, we can trust Russian scientists to be careful right........?
I am not 100% sure this is actually meant for facial exercises but I guess I could be wrong (via Geekologie):

Right to the tunes!
A great voice of experience, and a great person to learn from is my buddy on Twitter @JackHBarnes. His request was for Sammy Hagar and "I Can't Drive 55" which is an issue for any Porsche driver:
My friend from Canadia, @TSXSwingtrader , both fears US invasion of her homeland and knows good tunes. Try out Hedley and "Don't Talk to Strangers":
Had this up a while ago, but heard it on the radio. Try out some Finger Eleven with "Paralyzer":
"And if your body matches what your eyes can do" I like that!
You don't have a "Fear of the Dark" do you? Via Iron Maiden:
My man Julian Hebron was showing me some really old school Black Eyed Peas. Not my kind of music, but it's a throwback with, well I don't know what it's called:
I need Van Halen's "Atomic Punk":
I feel better.
Last song! Grab a girl, a beer, or what's close by!
Closing with The Who and "Behind Blue Eyes":
Have a good night.
