9. Yeah. Lot's of people saw the "more recent crash" coming too.
All bubbles pop. Ponzi schemes fail, and any business model based on a growing influx of new suckers is a Ponzi scheme. The real world does not support exponential growth indefinitely anywhere anytime. Stability and equilibrium are where it is at if you want long term prospects, or perhaps growth asymptotic to zero like the big bang.

But guns and ammo and plenty of booze and drugs seems like a more useful investment for your remaining weeks and months.
