Don't about stock exchanges, but squirrels seem to love high voltage transformers of the sort used at research labs.

The Confidential Memo at the Heart of the Global Financial Crisis

The Memo confirmed every conspiracy freak's fantasy: that in the late 1990s, the top US Treasury officials secretly conspired with a small cabal of banker big-shots to rip apart financial regulation across the planet.

The "squirrels" have names and addresses.

They're warm, hopping from insulator to insulator until they happen to touch two contacts at once.

Presidential Meeting Signals Catastrophic Event: "There Is a Crisis Unfolding Somewhere in the Background"

This week, in a move that has spooked a lot of economic and financial analysts, President Barack Obama held a special, closed door meeting with the heads of the U.S. government's financial, monetary and oversight agencies. It included members of the Federal Reserve, the FDIC, the CFTC, the SEC, and the Federal Housing Finance Agency.

This has left many wondering what is really going on - and if a serious event is about to take place yet again.

Squirrels! I hate them!

Edmund: This is turning into a really rotten evening.
Amy: Yes, well you better make the most of it, because it's your last. And it's a pity, because it's usually against my principles to shoot dumb animals.
Edmund : Except squirrels?
Amy: Yes! Bastards! I hate them with their long tails and their stupid twitchy noses. (shoots two squirrels, "eep", "eep") I shall return at midnight to collect the loot, when I'll fill you so full of holes I could market you as a new English cheese! (Shadow voice) Ha ha ha ha ha!
Edmund : Oh God! What a way to die! Shot by a transvestite on an unrealistic grassy knoll!

Why is it that they can get into cables and shut down the economy but they couldn't get into my old house and burn it down?  I sure could have used the insurance money to just rebuild the damn thing all at once.
/Because squirrels are jerks, that's why

You see, this is why dogs go crazy at the mere thought of squirrels. As revealed in the Dogs and Cats movies, they are protecting humanity against our common enemy, cats, but squirrels, they're just terrorists, evil for the sake of being evil, not because it's cool, which is why the cats are evil.

This is not, perhaps, said explicitly in either movie, but it is implicit in this scene:

Squirrels hate humans. They've been jealous ever since we out-evolved them.

They chew through wires in suicide attacks, just to inconvenience us. They hide in our attacks and make a mess of the pink glass stuff people keep up there for some reason. They'll steal your nuts if you don't keep an eye on them at all times. And don't think they are helpless little fuzzy-wuzzies. They can take down a snake!

Be careful what you ask for this is fark after all.

I just watched a squirrel drag up the head of a sunflower and was pretty funny.  I want to hate them, but they're just so much fun.

Presidential Meeting Signals Catastrophic Event: "There Is a Crisis Unfolding Somewhere in the Background"


Yeah, that's what it is. I'm sure it has nothing to do with something reasonable, like what to do with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. From a speech two weeks ago:

He proposed to "wind down" Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, for the first time outlining his approach to overhauling the two giant mortgage-finance companies that were taken over by the government when they failed nearly five years ago. The companies, which Mr. Obama described in an appearance here as "not really government, but not really private sector," recently began to repay taxpayers.

And by "a lot of economic and financial analysts", you mean 2 or 3 conspiracy nuts who have an orgasm every time the President has a non-public meeting. Or is there a list of the "concerned" that we can look at?

Ssshhh. You'll ruin his fun. Life is so much more interesting when one pretends that everyone is out to get you. Especially when the right chemicals are taken.

I was kind of suspecting those Syrian hackers who took down the NYT last week. I wonder if they've figured out how to weaponize squirrels, yet?
