Mixed Friday thoughts

Tweet of the day goes to Peruvian reporter Pedro Rivas Ugaz for this tweet that translates as, 
"Darling I had a nightmare. I dreamt that Keiko Fujimori and Ollanta Humala were the only candidates left in the second round run-off."
 My stars, it's nearly all over and they'll all STFU soon. Be thankful for small mercies.

Bear Creek Mining (BCM.v) is getting the NOBS fundies treatment this weekend, subbers. We'll also be making a pretty specific recommendation on the stock that will depend on news flow in the next five to six days (not three days). Until then, no rush.

McDonald's added more jobs than the USA in May. Seriously. The only question left is to wonder how they're going to keep adding liquidity to the market without calling it QE3. I'm sure they'll find a way...that bank reserve ratio, for one thing.

Bayfield Ventures (BYV.v) is up this morning on this news, which goes to show yet again how stupid people are conned by crooks. Yeah you might think 20.35m of 2.27g/t gold is good, but you'd be harder pressed to like the reality, which is two skinny veins and a 16.8m remnant of 0.321 g/t Au. A stock strictly for Casey Research sheep.

In Peru, they're so desperate to stop Humala that they've wheeled out the crazy loophead Roger Noriega to say that thanks to his extra special secret intel that he can't talk about, he knows that Chávez has handed over U$12m to Ollanta in the last six months. Two Weeks Notice points out just how silly Roger really is.
