This just in

The pleasure of orgasm, the high from cocaine, the rush of buying Google at $450 a share - the same neural network governs all three [. . .] What's more, our primal pleasure circuits can, and often do, override our seat of reason, the brain's frontal cortex. In other words, stocks, like sex, sometimes drive us crazy.

So, the world economy is run by horny cokeheads? No wonder I feel like I'm getting screwed...

Wouldn't the real thrill be buying the stock at a much lower price and having it rise that high? Just a thought.
