  2. Haha thanks for the link. I was just a youngster when that happened, but it had to of been scary. I should ask my dad about it sometime.

    1. Compounding Income: I was also a youngster at the time; it's too bad my 5-year-old self didn't have the good sense to break open my piggy bank and buy some of the stocks on sale. :)
