    See a spectacular supermoon Sunday night



    Article:


    Excerpt:
    "The largest, brightest full moon in nearly seven decades will be on display in the coming days, promising Earth-bound sky-watchers a celestial "supermoon" spectacle.

    "The full moon will come nearer to Earth than at any time since 1948, astronomers said."

    The only thing dumber than awarding the
    Nobel Prize for Literature to Bob Dylan was
    Bob Dylan not bothering to accept the prize.




    Dylan notably absent as Nobel laureates accept prizes





    Dylan declined to show up for the award ceremony citing "pre-existing commitments".

    Nobody in the news media covering this sideshow has any idea what was so important

    that Dylan was unable to get his butt to Stockholm, dress appropriately, and show up.

    I've always been fascinated by hyperinflation. It's a morbid sort of fascination, like slowing down and staring at a really bad traffic accident. Some time ago, I discovered a table of hyperinflation episodes in the modern age, titled The Hanke-Krus Hyperinflation Table

    So, naturally, I wanted to see the absolute highest rate of hyperinflation ever recorded.

    Here it is ---

    In Hungary, in July 1946, the inflation rate hit 4.19 x 10^16 % per month

    That's 41,900,000,000,000,000 % per month (41.9 quadrillion percent per month)

    The equivalent annual rate of inflation in that fateful month cannot even be calculated on a typical scientific calculator, because the result is beyond 10^99 (the limit on most calculators).

    But, that equivalent annual rate would be meaningless, in any event -- once hyperinflation reaches its climax, it cannot continue for even another month, let alone for a year. When the climax is reached, the currency collapses, potentially taking the government and the entire society with it.

    At the height of the Hungarian hyperinflation, the DAILY rate of inflation was 207% ---

    --- and prices were DOUBLING every 15 hours.
