It was getting better... my shares are almost worth half what I paid for them...

In 10 years I'll be drinking champagne... either in celebration or desperation! :)

Good luck to you. My IBM shares are in a similar state, I never bought Pearson.. and this place.. well, it will be a miracle if we make it to a liquidity event.

When that cimp of a president sorts his fiscal policies out - or, realistically, when the American people vote the next guy in, I hope the Dollar makes a nice recovery!

We'll see. This is their gamble to make US manufacturing more affordable and shrink our debt. Ridiculous thinking.

I can see how a student might believe that devaluing the dollar might shrink the national debt... I know little about economics so I might fall for that shit - but there are guys at work who are serious currency geeks and they are less understanding. I don't even pretend to understand their point of view - but I guess they know their stuff.

It's a massive gamble to get something for nothing. I think we all know how those sorts of things work out.

They are about as wise as me being three quarters through a bottle of wine...

CSI is starting to make sense on a whole new level.. I think this should be the last glass!

Whaaaat? I've no idea what you mean by that.

Drinking wine from a glass, etc..

Ha! I even used a real corkscrew to open the bottle!
