    I've lost so much on GS, I keep hoping to average down but there doesn't seem to be a bottom :)

    The bottom?

    Zero dollars per share sounds like about as bottom as it can get.

    What's that do to your average?

    On one of the other message boards, they laugh about DOOM, and even have a big DOOM banner. It sort of lightens up the crowd that knows that eventually we will face DOOM.

    There are many posters on that board who appear to be motivated by the prospect of DOOM. It took me a while to get used to it, but now, I can see it and almost smile were it not for the gravity of the situation. I guess the DOOM banner is sort of like an Alfred E Neumann "What Me Worry?" look.

    Can't personally do sheet about it, so might as well get with the program.

    DOOM!

    It gives him a hell of a tax write-off, which means less money for giveaway programs.
