Yesterday the two satellite radio companies, Sirius and XM, announced they were merging. Since I’ve been investing in Sirius for a few years now, I am curious to see what this will mean in the long run. Ironically, just last week I was talking with some friends about the improbabilty of a merger like this. I just didn’t think it was in the cards. Especially with all the articles on the net quoting both companies as having nothing in the works.

But something else happened last week. Something that, dare I say, may have sparked this merger? Yes. I do believe it was a Valentine’s gift I received.

The latest and greatest that Sirius has to offer. The Stilleto 100! I am getting rid of my old crappy one (unless one of you wants to buy it, then it is an older awesome one) after getting this one for Valentine’s Day. I guess Valentine’s isn’t all bad. ;) Anyway, I believe that unseen cosmic forces came into play once I activated the new radio, because 2 days later the merger is announced! I mean, come on. There has to be a connection. Tell me I’m wrong. But if you do, speak up, because I’ll have my new radio on.

And buy some stock in Sirius. Just a suggestion. Don’t get mad at me if it tanks.

Today's Deep Thought

  • If I lived back in the Wild West days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like 'Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!' and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, 'That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice.' Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.
