Who's laughing now?

When Jaden was trying to talk me into buying an Xbox 360 he described it as an investment. I laughed at the time but I just realized that if, instead of investing in the stock market, I had purchased 100 Xbox from Wal-Mart, opened them all, played each once and then sold them on Craig's List I would have come out ahead of where I am now. Cue Nelson Muntz, Ha, ha!

I did! We bought the Xbox and 2 games.
Also, when Jaden was about 4 I asked him for investment advice and he said "Pixar, their movies are always good." I agreed and bought some shares, then sold when they were acquired by Disney. Ka-ching!
