Deep Thought: More chaos, please

So, let's review recent happenings, in order of happening:

Stock market drops.

More nothing.

Stock market drops more.

Rebel forces storm Qaddafi's compound in Tripoli

Hurricane Irene forecast to reach Category 4 and head for North Carolina.

5.9 Earthquake hits the East Coast, evacuating DC and NY high rises, felt in Boston and beyond.

US Commerce Department releases poor housing numbers; survey from the Richmond Federal Reserve bank shows a drop in manufacturing activity; economists pare back on economic growth forecasts

Stock market has best day in 2 weeks.
Popular opinion is that today's 3% rise came because bargain hunters were picking up under-priced offerings due to the crappy conditions of the last month.

Eh. I'd say we just need more chaos.
