So I was placing an order with my broker and my trading assistant was busy so I got the backup, a mutual funds specialist I believe. When I told her it was the Ides I was met with the sounds of crickets chirping "Ides? You know, Julius Caesar, Shakespeare!" More crickets. Then over at my lion tamers I had a new trainer and asked him the same question with a similar result. Are You Kidding Me? Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, the Ides of March. Good Lord.

Just goes to show you. Once I retired, the quality of literature education has plummeted. :-)
