#2918: Another cliff!

DJIA dropped off a cliff after open today, the same way it did on Friday.

As I recall, there are limits and braking mechanisms which prevent the market from entering true free fall, but I have no idea what those limits are nor do I understand how the braking mechanisms work. I am only wondering if this kind of "cliff" curve is due to the operation of these limiters; would the index have fallen even farther?

Not the catastrophe I was worried about, which is good. I think.

The usual DOOM! post.

Putting the bunker on the "do not call" list has not, apparently, worked very well. I've gotten calls from charitable organizations and other phone spam, all of which should not be happening since this place is supposed to be on the damn list.

...and yes it's been more than sixty days.

Argh.

Last night I dusted off Erogami (the orc warrior) and ran Gnomeregan as tank. Another player said, "Awesome tanking!" How nice. I think he was being polite, but I'll take what I can get.

I added a couple levels to the orc before getting tired and logging out.

I don't know; I must be depressed, because I have no interest in doing anything, and all I want is to sleep.

...but I don't know why. Ennui is a symptom of depression, but not always; what if it's not this time? What if I'm just bored? Is that possible?

Eminently.

That's a thought I've never had before. You know, doing the same thing all the time leads to one becoming bored with it--that's human nature--and it is possible to have exhausted all interest in one's normal activities without one actually being depressed.

Not depressed. Just bored. Hmm. I'm going to have to think about this.
