Price of Tea in China

The current price of tea in China is: "; //echo "\"" . $otherPrice . "\""; $otherPrice = 1 + $otherPrice; $maxPrice = $price + $otherPrice; echo " with a max bid of ... " . number_format($maxPrice, 2); function showQuote() { $url = ""; $page = "/soap"; $post_string = " AAPL "; $header = "POST ".$page." HTTP/1.0 \r\n"; $header .= "User-Agent: Mac OS X; WebServicesCore.framework (1.1.0)"; $header .= "Host:"; $header .= "Content-type: text/xml \r\n"; $header .= "Soapaction: \"\"\r\n"; $header .= "Content-length: ".strlen($post_string)." \r\n"; $header .= "Connection: close \r\n\r\n"; $header .= $post_string; $ch = curl_init(); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 4); curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, $header); $data = curl_exec($ch); if (curl_errno($ch)) { print curl_error($ch); } else { curl_close($ch); } // Now parse the data returned to get our float price... $xml_parser = xml_parser_create(); xml_parser_set_option($xml_parser,XML_OPTION_CASE_FOLDING,0); xml_parser_set_option($xml_parser,XML_OPTION_SKIP_WHITE,1); xml_parse_into_struct($xml_parser, $data, $vals, $index); xml_parser_free($xml_parser); //print_r($vals); $attributes = $vals[3]; foreach($attributes as $attr) { /// uhh, yeah, this is uuuuugly. $finalPrice = $attr; } return $finalPrice; } //$client = new SoapClient(""); //print($client->getQuote("ibm")); ?>

disclaimer: not to be confused with a butterfly's wings flapping in China. This price is scientifically derived from numbers only tangentially related to the actual price of tea in China, which we have found is profoundly more accurate than actual prices paid for tea in China. How this affects you, your child, or an acquaintance is derived, again, scientifically, by a patent-pending method we'd love to discuss, but can't, at this time. It has little to nothing to do with the technology behind the magic eight ball. A brief overview of the connections between the price of tea in China and these results (both the price and actual bearing on events) is illustrated here.
