And if you really believe that you probably believe Winston Churchill did not say "Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has not heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains." http://www.quotedb.com/quotes/1358

I looked it and apparently you are right. He said those words. All of them, just not in that order. :-)

Well then, all of us had said those words, just not in this ordr.

Now, I am sure GOOG market cap is big enough to buy MBZ.

I need to short the sucker.

Edit:

Just checked.

GOOG market cap $158B.

DCX market cap: $49B.

Easy.
