However, this post isn’t about my lost money. No, this post is about those “sad stock broker” pictures that you see in the paper or on the web when things are bad. Who are these guys and why are they always rubbing their head when things are bad? I’m not sure, but I think that there is a Budweiser real men of genius commercial in here somewhere…..
