Set your stock market monitor to the level when your stocks are at a point you believe you won't be able take it any longer. When the stock market crashes to the preset level it automatically releases a fatal dosage of a drug that kills you instantly.

       I thought that said "sp: pregnant" and I missed the connection.

       nope not present but "preset" or a level that is set in advance of it being reached. If it was present level we would be killed instantly but based on the current stock market the present is probably most peoples preset level.   

       Or were you thinking of that great quote from Kung Fu Panda. I can't recall the exact words but to paraphrase The past is history, the future is a mystery and today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.

       I think it's a comment on the current stock market conditions.

       That damned panda is so quotable! Almost as good as discovering philosophy of mind through The Matrix!   

       With all due respect: the quote is from Babatunde Olatunji, an esteemed african drummer, educator, social activist, died in 2003 from diabetes (not stocks).   

       "Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present."   

       Jeez. To think that quote came form some animated crap from 2008? You'd have to be brai... umm. Right, right. Carry on.

Blackadder: Baldrick, have you no idea what "irony" is?
Baldrick: Yes, it's like "goldy" and "bronzy" only it's made out of iron.
