Shoot. Looks like tainted-meat beat me to it and won the ties.

What kind of ties will he/she get?
bow ties?
neck ties?
ties for a loaf of bread?
gift wrapping ties?

Only one trading day left for me to get out of the basement. Has the S&P 500 ever had a 1000 point day before...?!

Tacster, you must not give up, you must hold on. We simply cannot have Deutsche Bank win the Taylor Larimore Boglehead S&P Contest. That would throw us all into utter Confusion :confused

Don't worry, Deutsche Bank is still in utter confusion. They've been written up plenty in the papers this year. :twisted:
