To which Pixy replies:

Hey, not so hard! So I forgot to point out that some stock investments can and do beat the S&P 500 and also stayed ahead of bonds in the decade under question. At least I provided a pointer (albeit belatedly) to a study that shows that fact. I should get some points for that. <g>
