Men during depression era America had a much better sense of fashion, don't you agree /a/?
>>
I agree.
>>
All I'm going to say is if you're gonna wear a coat, you might as well wear a hat. Because just about anyone looks better when they wear a hat.
>>
dirty fucking halfhuman slavs
>>
But don't wear a hat unless the rest of your attire matches it, please. I want to punch people who wear a fedora with jeans and a t-shirt.
>>
>>10043158
Completely agree with this. I'd wear hats during winter, because I'm a pussy for cold weather, but also, I just like them. I always got shit from people. I was in a suit for work, how did wearing a hat make me look stupid?

Speaking of the Great Depression:

> The Crash is past. Comes now Inflation.

>Seems to me a lot of people don’t realize the worst financial crash since 1929 has already occurred. I suppose they are waiting for a big explosive fireball and a lot of noise like in a Hollywood movie, or for the nightly news on their wide-screen televisions to show pictures of desperate bankers and brokers splattered on the sidewalks in front of 60-story temples of finance.

>This diary is my humble little attempt to let these people know that the crash has already happened. It began in August. I guess they didn’t notice, but a number of financial markets have already collapsed. First, of course, there was the derivatives based on sub-prime mortgages. That seems to be about where the common consciousness stops. But before U.S. Secretary Treasury Hank Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke (a.k.a., Captain Carnage) even lifted a finger to try and sort out the sub-prime mortgage mess, they first had to deal with the collapse of the market for Structured Investment Vehicles. Since these two crises began last summer many other financial markets have also collapsed: corporate junk bonds, asset-backed commercial paper, municipal bonds. This last was saved just last week by New York State Insurance Commissioner Dinallo basically forcing Moodys, S&P and Fitch to give AAA ratings to the monolines insurers. All these markets have pretty much ceased functioning, with not even the banks that created some of this stuff willing to buy their own product. Financial institutions have also been disappearing, especially a number of hedge funds, the most recent being this past week: Peloton, a London-based hedge fund specializing in asset-backed bonds.

Heres the whole article, scary times are ahead of us.

A market crash doesn't mean the internet will vanish. In fact, I don't see how it will be affected much at all. It isn't like you have to produce it in a factory, nor can it break. The things on the internet which you can pirate will probably go down, though.

DOES THIS MEAN TOTAL ANARCHY WILL REIGN SUPREME AND WE'LL HAVE TO FIGHT IT OUT ON THE HIGHWAYS FOR A TANK OF "JUICE" LIKE IN THE ROAD WARRIOR?

FUCK YEAH!!!!!

This year I was hoping the Democrats would give us a new FDR, what we got were a bunch of candidates who resembled Hoover. And the Republicans just threw us a guy who admits to not knowing much about the economy.

On top of a recession we've got peak oil and Climate change. Was there ever a generation that was as throughly fucked as ours?

Global climate change is probably mostly the fault of solar activity. Humans didn't cause it and they can't "fix" it.

It's naive and a little insane to think that humans have advanced enough that we can "fix" a global chaotic system such as temperature and weather with our current knowledge, when we can't even accurately forecast changes.

Yet people seem to think we just haven't thrown enough money at it.

This threads goes from how well dressed men where back in the early 20th century to LOL RACISM?

So you are telling me I should take all my books, and card games, and go into the mountains to avoid the mass floods, and be a hermit?

Sounds good to me.
>>
>>10043619

The Greenland ice sheets are melting faster than scientists predicted and so is the Antarctic. That's all the proof I need to know Climate Change is real.

Besides how is spending money on alternatives a bad idea, do you enjoy the thought of our Presidents being in the pockets of the Saudis for years to come?
>>
>>10043619
Even if we can't fix it, we can slow it down so the world remains a nice place until we die. Then it'll be the worry of our children. And even if global warming isn't happening due to human activity, the world could really use less pollution. Polluted air is irritating to breathe.

I'll tell you this, I'm only 19.

The Amerikkkan government has a left a sad future(shit economy) for the younger generation. Hell, living at home forever now doesn't seem like a bad idea. I sure as hell ain't going to try and buy a house or apartment in these times.

>>10043619
What ARE you talking about? This thread's about how well-dressed men are in Baccano!.
>>
>>10043666
They also have proof that certain ice sheets are thickening more than they have been in recent history. Global temperature isn't rising as they predicted, but actually falling. The Sun is going through a period of declining emission similar to what they believe happened during the Little Ice Age.

Just how does "global warming" explain falling temperatures and reduced solar activity?
>>
>>10043274
Fuck, so by the time i get out of school, Shit will suck big time, and i'll probably have to get a job as a laborer. and it wont recover until i'm 40 or 50... .

Fuck.
>>
>>10043666

I don't have a real news article, nor do I feel like finding one, but something about low sunspot activity has people predicting a global temperature drop exceeding the cumulative rise due to global warming that's been experienced.

It's cool guys, we just have to wait for the genius and/or hero of our times.

This article said the "Crash" is even worse than the 1929 crash.

Time to horde money and say "FUCK EVERYONE ELSE".

>>10043757
Technically, you SHOULD be trying to buy now, as the prices are all depressed due to a harsh recession in the housing market.

But you're just 19, so I guess the fact that everything you just said was mistaken can be forgiven.

>>10043829

The money will be worthless. That's the point.

>>10043813
Uh sunspot activity fluctuates every 13 or so years. theres already been years where there have been tons of sunspots and years where there have been almost none. I fail to see how this makes a difference.
>>
>>10043813
They've already shown that drop has exceeded what they said was the rise.

NASA needs to hurry up and build space colonies so I can get off this shitty planet.

Call me when they make a space construction frame called the Zaku I.

NASA fails at launching stuff into space, so they can just stfu.

Is this the same NASA that can't even recreate the formula for its own heat shields?

I'll get a second opinion on that, thanks.
