After a heady experience of that kind, normally sensible people drift into behavior akin to that of Cinderella at the ball.
They know that overstaying the festivities -- that is, continuing to speculate in companies that have gigantic valuations relative to the cash they are likely to generate in the future -- will eventually bring on pumpkins and mice. But they nevertheless hate to miss a single minute of what is one helluva party.
Therefore, the giddy participants all plan to leave just seconds before midnight.
There’s a problem, though: They are dancing in a room in which the clocks have no hands.
~ Warren Buffet
And they're sadly mistaken if they think someone is going to bring the glass slipper back.
