Hmm I'm not totally convinced that OPEC broadcasting their fears about the weakness of the dollar was really an accident.

Seems a little fishy that the information leaking led to a further devaluation of the dollar and a rise in oil prices.

Oh come on. A technician "accidentally" plugged the TV feed into the "wrong socket", my entire arse. After years of secrecy and never letting anything slip from their money-grabbing, oil-slick mouths, this is the first thing they say? I do not believe it sir, not for one second.

That said, cheap dollar = import PS3 and sell for megabucks

Yeah I'm unconvinced this was an accident too. If it was such a secret meeting then why was there a camera in there anyways? And why was there a roomful of reporters nearby?
The dollar is so low now me and Magina are already making plans for an epic american west coast adventure next year.
