You'll probably delete them all like Scrubby (who recently deleted her journal again), and then people will be oscillating between walrus and magnum - both are huge.

If you can't handle the volatility, you have to invest your posts in high-quality AAA rated threads like Overheard at Work, not the high risk/high reward personal journals.  Yeah, the AAA threads don't have the same huge growth potential, but they are safe.

This gave me entirely too much joy.

No, but it does have a time limit that is quickly approaching.

Oh god, the NZ, followed closely by the Aussie stock market will be the first to open following the election.

There world will quickly judge what a Trump victory will mean. I am genuinely concerned that a Brexit style upset will occur... Trump voters just look more likely to turn up on the day because they genuinely believe the rhetoric.

slow and steady... buy and hold... don't panic... and always remember where your towel is.
I wouldn't be surprised if there's a lot of gyrations in the global markets following the election, but regardless of the direction it's just a blip for anyone investing for life.

Unless something like 2000 happens with the vote-counting getting extended for weeks...or if Trump loses but refuses to concede...

I am resigned to never becoming a walrus, because each time I get close, my numbers go down again.

Magnum is magnificent!
And let's face it, magnum is so much more attractive than wal-rus! If I ever get too close, i may have to dump scrub some posts.

Strange, I don't feel any different...

No, the Handlebar covers 1000-2499. You've got another 480ish until Magnum.

I hardly noticed the names before. Walrus. That is funny.

While we're here, what do the yellow squares under our screen name mean?

Well, it was one of the funniest exchanges around - especially as it was somewhat ephemeral because the changes you made to your avatar were temporary.

For some reason, I can't insert this comment at the end of the full thread, so I cut off half of it and it finally worked. Too many quotes? I don't know.

You probably have to be from the USA to get that joke. And remember guys and female same gender SOs the correct response is ALWAYS "no dear, your ______ doesn't make your butt look big".
Exactly! I'd be skeptical of discovering any woman anywhere who actually wants to be called a walrus. No fucking way. We need a better name. Absent that, I think I'll just pull a scrubby to stay out of walrus territory. Except I don't have a journal (or three) that I can just obliterate.

Well, it looks like I'm about to cross the dreaded Walrus threshold, despite my previously stated reluctance. I am sure it will make my butt look big. Since any and all requests for a name change have been studiously ignored, I guess unless I pull a Scrubbyfish, it's just going to...
