Four months ago, we added NBIX to our little basket of speculative drug stocks, at $2.60. Yesterday, with the announcement of a global marketing deal with an established drug company (as Guru foretold), the stock closed at $5.37, giving us our double. Guru thinks, with time, it will be worth considerably more. I’m holding all mine.
Not the worst time to own shares in a dredging company, very sad to say. Here‘s the press release.
Oleaginous: ‘The Dyson Airblades™ you wrote about yesterday are installed at the international terminal of San Francisco International Airport, and I gotta say these things really work. I have hands with a lot of excess oil that are near-impossible to dry with two paper towels, and these devices dry my hands perfectly. Highly recommended.”
COOKING LIKE A GUY™
The container says, “best if purchased before 3/10/06” and I’m certain I purchased it well before then, so it should be fine.
WHY IS TODAY THURSDAY?
John Seiffer: “I loved the section on dozens counting and the length of a month. I wonder if you could ask your readers the genesis (pun intended) of the weekly Sabbath. It seems to me that unlike the month, year, and day the 7 day cycle has no physical or astronomical equivalent. And yet is seems to be a very pervasive (perhaps universal) cycle that people observe in many different cultures. I wonder if I’m right about that. I find it very practical for many planning purposes and wonder if there’s something innate to our physiology about it.”
☞ Does this help?
BUT WHY WOULD ANYONE DO THIS?
Tina Amonn: “I have you as an app on my iPhone – did you know that could be done?” [No.] “Just use iPhone’s Safari browser to pull up andrewtobias.com . . . push the + button in the lower middle portion of the screen . . . then choose ‘add to home screen.’ You can then choose a name and click ‘add’ in the upper right corner. This will create a new ‘app’ and whenever you click on it, it will automatically bring up the most recent version of the website.”
