I do know how to grow some bad ass brocolli. :)

I'm really not talking about an end of the world. I do buy and hold and examine and hold and examine and sell if things have changed. But going forward it just feels different. The just world feels more like a mature company that is expected to have slower growth. MSFT as opposed to AMZN.

I went back to the S&P charts and broke up the last 60 years into 15 year chunks starting back in 1950. My thinking was perhaps any 15 year period would look as volatile as the last 15, but no. Volume over that period is markedly up as well. Internet? Investing awareness? 401k? Highspeed electronic trading? Probably some of all of those.
