Its been a long life of disasterous things happening
For me, I grew up in a shack with an outhouse. I enjoyed those times, but the news was full of Hippies , Flower Children , LSD , Vietnam War , Racial Wars and the Kent State shootings . Then it went on to Food Shortages , Stagflation , Oil Spills and Gas shortages . Then there was the horrible Aids and the Ebola viruses. In Vegas, the Mgm Grand Fire killed 100 people. There was the Gulf War . The '.com' bubble broke. In this decade, there was the fear of Y2K which ended up doing nothing, and the Twin Towers which ended up changing a lot of things. I'd guess Wall Street going bonkers isn't that interesting. I have camping gear with me. If everything crashes, we're going camping! YEA!
