Among the things we knew when the sun came up this morning were the following: The European Union would still be a mess. I'd spend way too much time on Twitter. And the Federal Reserve wasn't gonna change interest rates at its meeting today.

We were so sure of that fast fact that we prepared a new version of our popular hit game show, Federal Reserve Time Machine. And you get to guess who said what when. We give you the "who"--Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Fed. He had one of his four times a year press conferences today.

As for when--well that's up to you.

On the topic of inflation:

Cut 1:

Cut 2:

On the topic of unemployment:

So, which of the previous cuts was today and which one was at his briefing three months ago? Post a comment below with your guess or Tweet us @MarketplaceAPM.
