    Why did the banks fail, was it because of subprime mortages or because they were deregulated? I heard some sources say the banks were regulated but surely they weren't, due to neoliberal policies and that's one of the reasons why they failed?

    You do, John. It's in your head.

    Come on, think about it. You gotta get yourself in your head so you can get the knowledge outta your head.

    I believe in you, John. Always have done, too. Ever since primary school when we used to use our jumpers as goal-posts. I believed in you. You're my Santa, John. Bring us the gifts of your sack.

    lol. okay i will admit it

    i caused the crash,

    in 2008, having escaped hospital, for the second time, i flew over to kenya,by myself again, and got married to my fiance. everyone said i couldn't but i did,

    then the markets tanked.

    i'm not saying that i was the only reason, and i also thought that they were all watching me all the time. but i did it anyway.

    that'll do it!
