19. Buy gold! Buy guns! Buy ammo!
It's a constant thing on this board... It's a lot worse tonight than normal, though. It's like all the people who were shitting themselves over Rev. Wright are now shitting themselves over stock market futures.

Everybody on here seems to think they've got a crystal ball.
