What can be said about this casino? Two things: GOOG & YHOO. Investors are certainly not yet afraid of crazy valuations, so why not party it up? Say, to 2020's or so? Heck, why not 2100? All it takes is for "investors" to feel good.

That last bit on the Nasdaq is stated with tongue planted firmly in cheek. But why not? This is Frankenmarket, and anything is possible. It all depends on "investor" psychology, liquidity and a mass desire to keep the game afloat. If we have learned nothing since March '03, it is that these are very powerful forces.
