Anyone else follow the markets? These wild swings - as they were last year, and in 2008 - are so freaking unnerving.

Good thing an expensive divorce and struggling Michigan economy has left me broke so I don't worry about any of that right now

Be prepared for this for the rest of the 10's - there is too much paper money out there and too many people wanting too much from their governments (across the world)...

I think the best we can hope for is Japan 1990-today - worst case you hover around the 1930's

Yeah, I can't believe how much the price for my t-bones has fluctuated. Sometimes I can afford filet mignon, other times, even the sirloin is getting expensive. And don't get me started on the price of milk...........

It took me a moment, because that could have been a genuine response, and not a clever play on "markets."
