Let me say publicly that DonBoy’s answer exudes a combination of intuitive genius and confidence that make me think DonBoy is going to do big things in his life. -- Steven D. Levitt (Freakonomics blog)

Steve M. aka No More Mr. Nice Blog links to a Free Republic comments page for his own fine reasons, but there's something great hiding on the page. See, it's about the War on The New York Times, and someone decided to mock the Times' stock price. First they show us that the stock has lost 50% of its value in the last 4 years, which is true. Then the next guy bites off more than he can chew, and here's the result -- click to enlarge, and you really should:
Well, that's funny -- why is the Freeper mocking the rise of Times stock over the last two days?
On Wednesday, the guy saw that the stock was down over the last couple of days. So he went to Yahoo's stocks section and pulled up the chart, and cut-and-pasted the link from his browser URL bar, which was http://ichart.finance.yahoo.com/w?s=NYT . But he didn't realize that he was linking to a dynamic page that always shows the current chart. So today, he looks kind of dumb.
