I know that I don't have very much credibility when it comes to investing. That being said.... it seems many people here are getting a little carrried away with their dreams of becoming mega-millionaires.
Yes, the stock market has gone up, and with it BRK, MKL and just about everything has gone up with it. So, if you invested in anything, you are prbbably congratulating yourself on being such a good stock picker and manager of money. So now that you made some dough, instead of breathing a sigh of relief, you are extrapolating out how rich you are going to be by compounding your money at 8%, 10% and even 15% for the next few decades.

Wake up you guys! This is real life!
