It is obvious: put your fingers in your ears and close your eyes

I saw a black and white film many years ago about an asteroid approaching earth.  It was before green screen and digital.  It would be laughable and the dialogue would be…dated…were it seen today.  However it had a nice ending.  The hero (and his heroine) did everything they could to avert the disaster to the state where they were able to launch the missile in time to intercept the missile.  However it was by no means a done deal.  The last scene was in a newspaper office where they had the print run set up with one of two headlines to print, the staff were just standing around listening to a feed from mission control.  Mission failed Earth doomed, or Asteroid destroyed we are all saved were the two headlines.  Fade away, roll up credits.

I have banged on about triggers over the past 3 years.  Cyprus has all the characteristics of one.  But I think we stand with two headlines for tomorrow.  The Cypriots will get their money from the banks and collapse them and/or there will be chaos and I can easily see some of the people in charge paying the greatest price unlike everywhere else in the world.  Perhaps along with parking we will see, the death penalty for incompetence in banking.  There is a chance we will see it tomorrow.  So there are a couple of endings but both of them are bad.

I am not standing around head in hands waiting for the end of the world as I know it.  I think that getting to a new world quickly is better than trying to keep the old one going longer.  Different does not mean worse.

Tomorrow will be a trigger or history will see it as just the first event of many that were inevitable (in hindsight or the foresight of independent observers).  The end of the bank holiday might be delayed in which case it is the trigger – run for the hills!

It is obvious: put your fingers in your ears and close your eyes, scream if it helps
