    Poor Bernanke.

    Raise interest rates = Kill the housing market.
    Lower interest rates = Kill the dollar.

    He needs a head-rub.

  2. On the headphone tip- I (and anyone else who’s ever bought a pair) highly highly recommend Koss Porta-pro headphones. They’re like $35 on Amazon, they’re super comfortable, and the sound is downright amazing, even when you don’t consider how cheap they are. Bonus points for New Yorkers: they look kinda old school, so they’re not so attention grabbing to ipod thieves, plus since they’re not inner ear, you can actually hear some things that are going on around you.
