JRE's Year in Review: October

Outselling all of the Booker Prize shortlist combined, it’s JRE’s Year in Review!

In October:

Losing money became trendy: UBS wrote down CHF 4 billion, Citi lost USD 3.3 bio, King County lost an undisclosed amount; the only people making profits were Nigerian scammers ($7 billion a year!) … JRE measured the relativistic time dilation around a local pub … the Wallabies were kicked out of the rugby world cup by Jonny Bloody Wilkinson; Jeremy Clarkson couldn’t resist gloating … A380 passengers were politely asked to please stop doing that … a study found that swearing at work can relieve stress; everyone thought that was f*cking awesome …

And there was a nostalgia party for supersonic air travel.
