The most expensive cup of coffee ever
I just walked past my television on the way to get a cup of coffee and I said "Wow the Dow's down 400 points. I wonder what it will be at when my Keurig's done."
Two minutes later I walked back past the TV and the Dow was down a freaking thousand points?!?! P&G was down twenty-something percent. Twenty percent, on NOTHING. How is that even possible? It certainly gives one a lot of confidence in the system.
Someone must have made a killing on the irrational movement. Quite frankly, I'm skeptical that anyone outside of an investment bank or hedge fund would have even been able to take advantage of that momentary blip.
