October. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks. Other dangerous months are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August and February. Politics are almost as exciting as war and quite as dangerous. In war you can only be killed once, but in politics - many times. Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides. Hey, can you take the wheel for a second, I have to scratch my self in two places at once. The true man wants two things: danger and play. For that reason he wants woman, as the most dangerous plaything.
