Well, the uncertainty in the Chinese market leaked back into both the American and European markets, seeing a relative rise in value for the Brazilian Real as compared to most other currencies trading at the moment...

But I'm curious... why would zeros be involved in waxing down in certain areas?

My favorite blonde joke:

A blonde walks into a hair salon and asks fo have her hair taken care of. However, she is wearing headphones, and the barber can't do his job. He asks her to take off her headphones, and she refuses. Again and again she refuses until finally the barber gets fed up and takes them off anyway, telling her unless she wants to have her hair look absolutely rediculous p, she will have to go without the headphones.
Two minutes later, she passes out, blue in the face, and slides out of the chair.
The barber, completely stunned, picks up the headphones and puts one to his ear.

The headphones were playing four words, on repeat: "Breathe in... Breathe out... Breathe in... Breathe out..."

By the way, as a finishing bow on the whole of this story:

The Machine Shop is, in fact, a facility that is used for large events - concerts, receptions, weddings - like that which is posited in the story.

However, the internal layout of the facility would result in the final battle being more along the lines of a trope-like Not OSHA Compliant factory, with metal catwalks and concrete floors.

Hmmmmmmm...

That would give Glytch plenty of room to play... And of course, John could also melt a large chunk of metal and scoop out large handfuls of molten steel and throw them like snowballs from hell...

Problem with John: there's a basement to the place, and it's set into a hillside. (2nd Street is a higher elevation, by about three floors, than Main.)

BUT - I am not letting that get in the way of a good story.

A bit late to post on this story, but in case anyone wondered about Justin's partner, Robert Keeshan, here's what he looks like...

BTW- can anyone tell me who he is named after?

This would put either Bud or Shelly, or both, in the role of Mr. Moose, gleefully dropping ping-pong balls from above.
