I call bullshit

Ben "Stacks O' Cash" Bernanke:
U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Tuesday that the recession should end this year and 2010 "will be a year of recovery," if actions taken by the government lead to some stabilization in financial markets.
Pretty big fuckin' "if" there Ben. "If everything gets fixed then everything will be fixed." But I'm sure that this is a statement you will never come to regret and won't be carved onto your tombstone if it's wrong.

Actually, the good news is if you live long enough when you die we probably still won't be using stone to mark graves, we'll just let bodies rot where they fall, lest we expend precious energy on something other than survival. Even if you do get a gravestone, soon things such as society and literacy won't even exist, so you're safe on that count too. Fuck it, make all the "everything is fixed" predictions you want, accountability doesn't exist anymore.
