Every generation gets to go through some form of the speculative phase. Our generation got to experience the dot-com and telecomm boom & bust cycle (some loud memories still ringing in my head from all of that - and plenty of posts from me in the archives are available to view). We prefer to own it all these days

It sure helps if you get in early once, get phat, and then “own it all” or use other conservative strategies to keep it.

The ones I have no sympathy for are those who are gambling with money they have to make more money they don’t need, and then wind up with no money at all.
