1. I would sit on the cash or buy gold.
The grow lights & seed idea isn't high on the list to me, you would have to pay to power the lights. You would be better off buying emergency food supplies & canning supplies. I have enough bullets to last a lifetime.

I would also strive to be debt free, even if you have to sell some assets in order to do it.

7. It's better to have it and not need it
Than to need it and not have it.

And it's not the kind of mistake that you get to make twice, either.

11. I want to live near you.
You'll have all the good stuff. :P :pals:

I would probably get Microsoft, Disney, and Wal-Mart. I figure why not make some of the money back that I've spent on the bastards through the years while they screwed me over. :evilgrin:

12. Not proud to say...
But I did do some "profit taking" today... better I take it than a panicky market. the main stock in my portfolio had risen dramatically and peaked in December, when I considered selling. Kicking myself that I didn't then, because it's off 20% since that peak when I sold, and off another 5% today (so far).
