My first reaction is that's a funny number to use to summarize a big block of text. But no. You did the math.

See that's the approach that would have made sense. After I saw your post I counted one row and one column and multiplied.

Was having 420 instances on purpose?  Maybe it means you can just roll one joint instead of taking 420 shots.

That's good. 420 shots of beer is a whole lot to be drinking on most days of the week.

Assuming a shot is what, an ounce?  That's like 3.2 gallons of beer.

A shot is 1.5 oz.  Almost a 5 gallon bucket full.

I'm going to be pedantic and say that a jigger is 1.5oz and a shot is either poorly defined or 1.0oz, depending on who you ask:

I've always gone by fingers rather than shots while mixing drinks.  Then you choose a wider or narrower glass depending on how badly you need the drink.  :P

Can there really be a new top? If every day is a new top, then no day is a new top.

Similar to, if everyone is weird, then no one is weird.

Itís like a second (third, fourth, fifth, etc.) coming of The Top. If you read revelations it will make more sense.

This is not true.  Weird covers so much territory that there's plenty of space for everybody to be really weird relative to every other person's really weird.

There's weird . . . and then there's Japan. . . where weird goes pro:

Well that depends how big your portfolio is, Top could be in, and value dropping slightly every day, but if you had a billion dollars invested, you could probably still pull 5-25k per day in dividends alone

My 401(k) buy was this Friday. It had to go up. It's a law of nature at this point.

Sometimes we get in sort of an upside down situation.  The Fed is threatening to taper (which is maybe why Powell's re-nomination is in question), which will raise interest rates, slow down the economy, and possibly induce a minor recession.

Apple and Amazon's results could mean that things aren't as great as the Fed thought, so they won't have to taper as soon as people thought (this month).  Thus the low interest rate party continues.

I was trying not to be serious in this thread. But, not just that there is also the GDP report that came out yesterday. You will see weak GDP numbers boost stock prices sometimes because of interest rates and QE policy.

*Morgan Freeman narrates* "Little did they know that there was a connection between their musings and market's movement. Portfolios across the country would continue to soar as forum members kept claiming the Top was in. Only a tiring of the subject could stop it."

Mr. Green earns his name by figuring out the true workings of the inscrutable top!!

If we donít get a Thorstache post soon, the top may very well be in!  A post with red lines, scary words, and exclamation points would be extremely bullishÖ. I must say, itís nice to have an indicator that is 100% accurate

The top is in and has been since @Thorstache declared it. It might be starting to look old and worn out, but trust in Thorstache the Top is in!

I feel very rich. Too bad it's all going to melt down. We're already down several points from the intraday high.

Dollars, it's been nice knowing you.
