What will perma-bears do if the world doesn't end?
Because it hasn't so far, yet they continue to tell us it's only a matter of time. I'm not saying everything's great from here, but most of the panic has cleared, and it has only made certain screaming types more convinced that they're right. That, of course, is one of those things that characterizes cults and conspiracy theorists: the more they're proven wrong by reality, the more they retreat into alternate realities to justify their beliefs.
I have a deep dbout about people who refuse to change their opinions when the facts change.
