This is an example of the post hoc ergo prompter hoc fallacy. it's not that simple

The Rainbow Sign

DearAlpha

Not my invention at all. There is a spiritual called Rise & Shine which tells the Noah story, which all Americans learn to sing as kids. It has the final verse:

No more water but the fire next time.

That marked the end of the Biblical flood.

Finnish shares are the most disappointing in the world, perhaps because the country's very name breathes negativism, "finish". That was true of both our shares from Helsinki today.
