IMG_1702I don't talk politics or current events here - mainly because I'd come off a a Lolbertarian whack-job, but I just had a serious "what in the crap?! moment when I checked my 401k:

Personal Rate of Return from 01/01/2008 to 10/09/2008 is -41.9%

This is one of the moments I look at my daughter and think about the future and get really sullen, so instead, I'm going to go back to solving technical problems as I can't even rationally discuss this in my own head.
