And, that, my friend, concludes my random and pointless thoughts of the day. You're excused. :)
Finally, I saw Blader in the park yesterday and he mentioned how he'd just lost a bunch of money in the stock market crash. Needless to say, he was not a happy camper (quite dour, actually). All I could think was that apparently I'm lucky I've never had any money to invest anything signficant in stocks (not like I would, as I don't understand those at all).
