    oil was below 90 at opening, long before the point drop of the day.


    Today is the biggest one day drop of the dow in history, other than october, 1929 (factored at inflation/etc)

    So, start hording cash.

    Investors sell stock. Stock value drops. Company loses money. Company makes job cuts. Jobless employees stop buying so much stuff. Company makes less money. Company makes more cuts because they don't need as many employees to make volume. More jobless people stop spending cash. The market becomes flooded with jobless people. Those left with jobs take pay cuts because they are no longer in demand. There are 908790 jobless people who will work for less than you, just to get a job. Hello depression.

    it's quite sad. We'll see another depression. I'm sure of it. That 700 billion ain't gonna do anything.

    as for hoarding. I vote beer. When the people lose their homes, they'll want beer.
