When they went public, I had no idea how to value their business, so I took W Buffett's advice and stayed away. I don't feel too bad about it, though. There might be some other young, upstart company out there today that will knock Google off their pedestal in a few years. One thing is constant: change.

Well, Raymr, you know what "They" say: It's harder to know when to sell than it is to know when to buy.

Oh, I just don't look as often as I used to. I haven't been watching the news lately either. Both of those changes have resulted in a better night's sleep . . .

Oh man--you've been duped. It is evidence of the centralization of the global economy. The government will soon be implanting chips in our heads to control which stocks we buy so that we only buy stocks that benefit the blind trusts of the powers that be.

That is why I only eat food that is grown on a farm and never anything that comes from a factory, and I only trust info that comes from the internet.

Even when I am drunk and posting from a hotel in a minor city on Halloween night--the bellman complained about the bushels of corn and the coleman stove I had him tote to the room, but we'll see who has the last laugh.
