missleI know the Mayans didn’t predict the end of the world to occur on December 21, 2012, but I must say that I’m just a tiny bit un-nerved by the announcement today that the NYSE is selling itself to some outfit called Intercontinental Exchange.

“Intercontinental Exchange”?

That brings to mind not world trade so much as, well, things that go boom.

It’s probably just a harmless coincidence.   On the other hand, what if Skynet is indulging in a little pre-kickoff taunting?
