Comment of the Day

Just Some Fuckhead (yes, really his name) in a thread at Balloon Juice:
All my friends and family who have been investing in their 401Ks dutifully for the last xx years have pretty much nothing to show for it. Meanwhile, I eschewed retirement savings and instead focused on buying a bunch of cool shit.

Good luck with that plan.

Meanwhile, I'm buying shares cheaper than dirt. I look forward to 15 years from now.

Ding, ding, ding. If you're lucky enough (read: young enough) not to need to think of retirement soon, buying at historically low prices now will probably work out well in the long run. So long as you're judicious about WHAT you buy.

That is hilarious. There's a part of me that wishes I'd invested less and bought more cool shit right about now, too.
