Why the housing-lending crisis alone isn't even halfway over, in three parts:

One: Key data points: I have been reading that 80% of option-ARMs have been being paid at or very near the minimum, not the recommended for payoff, level, and Alt-A is going south in the same bad ways that subprime did. Prime over the last few years is turnout often not to be so "prime," either. I don't have convenient links for this, and for that I apologise, but some of my previous economics post discuss it.

Two, from Credit Suisse, the original rate reset schedule across all adjustable-mortgage classes:



And three, the acceleration of the Option-ARM portion of that schedule by the data in part one (graph prepared by Mr. Mortgage):



As you can see, from a dollar value, we're less than halfway through this phenominon, and the lull we're entering is being filled in by advancing reset schedules. Sorry.

Your result for The Mythological Goddess Test...

Isis

Indeed, you are 88% erudite, 83% sensual, 46% martial, and 42% saturnine.

This Egyptian supreme Goddess is certainly the most influential deity on subsequent cultures. She was the ideal figure of womanhood, usually compared with the Greek Goddess Demeter or her Roman version, Ceres.

Isis was one element of a Holy Trinity, the remaining two figures being her brother and husband Osiris and their heroic son Horus. She was the Goddess of Magic for her brilliance, as well as the Goddess of Love because of her tenacious devotion.

She is often shown with wings, curving to caress coffins and sarcophagi of many a king. In certain papyri she is shown with her falcon wing headdress, covering her ears. One of her sacred symbols is the sistrum, a musical instrument that was believed to ward off evil spirits. Isis' sistrum was carved bearing the image of a cat and was representative of the Moon.

Isis was the High Priestess and an omnipotent magician as well as the only being ever to discover the secret name of Ra. She invariably carries the ankh, the symbol for eternal life. Her name is, by the rules of numerology, adding up to the number “2” and she just so happens to be depicted on the tarot card “Key 2 – The High Priestess”.
