Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

No, I don't gamble on frivolous things like the stock market.

I only play sure things, like craps and roulette. I totally have a system.

This morning I came across this game. Made my million in 30 weeks, I think I'm ready for the real thing.

I'm blessed to be able to do this for a living for other people! While I realize the gambling comment was tongue in cheek, if due diligence is performed when analyzing investments and "hot stock tips" are avoided, investing is investing, not gambling.
