A market drop of 90% should take at least five years I would imagine. I honestly do not accept that, but I do have my money invested. The only way possible for that to happen would be a catastrophe on our planet or massive deflation.

Charlie Munger has stated that an investor should have the temperament to see holdings go down by 50% three times every hundred years.
