Take this article for instance. After working a full day on very little sleep, most of my cognitive processes have slowed down significantly. So much so that when I read the sentence,
"That spending spurt reflected both the first outlays from the president's $787 billion stimulus package as well asautomatic spending for unemployment compensation and food stamps that is triggered during the downturns,"
I immediately googled "asautomatic spending" to see what it meant instead of just laughing at "spending spurt" like a normal person.
It turns out that "asautomatic spending" is a technical term used on Wall Street that refers to bank dividends being subdivided by subprime mortgage lending loans...
..or it means I need to go to bed early tonight.
What do you think "Asautomatic Spending" means?
