Bitcoin for me is pretty funny actually. I became interested when only a few cents. By the time it climbed all the way to $1.00, I was ready to try it. Opened an account, but then read all these stories about it being the currency of criminals. Even though no plan to do anything illegal, I became worried that anyone with an account might get investigated by the FBI. So I chickened out. Oh well.

The other crazy one was I bought Amazon for $8/share. I sold when it climbed to $32. After all, it quadrupled, so it wouldn't go higher. :-(. But I did buy and enjoy the motorcycle I bought with the profit.
