The E90 sedan is the last in the line of great 4 door 3 Series BMW's. Too bad.

Silver should pay well for this year when bought after all the big dips. I buy SLV on all the dips.

Yes. As a matter of fact, I put significant new money in the market this morning. I was waiting for the market to go down a bit. It's been a pretty good year for me so far.

The Russell 2000 is at an all-time high, are you sure you're not buying when others are buying?

The bulls don't care about fundamentals or the economy, so they might shrug off today's news. But eventually things will cave to reality. Don't think we'll get QE3 without a good market correction.

It doesn't matter what anyone says. The Federal Reserve is providing once in a lifetime liquidity. That's all that matters.

Bought this morning. Turned a fine profit by 4 PM as the market cut its losses. Another great day.

Thank you, Mr. Market!

GT3 is actually on my list.

I'm concerned about the increasing RMS issues however.

As far as gheyness is concerned, that's why I covered my face, didn't want Griff to masturbate himself into unconsciousness...
