    I love the satire Ron, but don't totally laugh at thinking like this. I have an uncle who had retirement money in his company stock and not long after cashing it out they announced a 2:1 split. He was kicking himself for his bad luck. He literally thought that if he had waited he would have doubled his money. I tried to explain the concept of stock splits and that a company can't just manufacture equity out of thin air, but I'm not sure he understood what I was saying. Oh well.
