    Taleb and his “white swan” was up 110% this year, how about you Warren – how much are you up? One question I have for Taleb, if he has 200 billion clownbucks, and I have 1 clownbuck, and we both are in the shopping mall where a sandwich cost 500 trillion clownbucks – what’s the difference if he made 110% more clownbucks? I visited this farmer in panama and told him I would pay him 100K US dollars for his daughters hand in marriage, he said no amount of US dollars would be enough, but if I could get him 10 healthy donkeys then we had a deal – huh? I am not used to thinking in terms of REAL ECONOMY when everything has always been priced in clownbucks.
