Seems Some Of My Friends Here Are Getting Depressed

Recommended Posts

if you don't know the story then click here

As the Netherlands went through a period of unprecedented economic boom in the first half of the 17th century, competition among growers started, who will have the most beautiful tulip. People were ready to pay extraordinary sums of money for a single bulb. It seemed that if they would have carefully cultivated their tulips they could have never lost, getting more and of precious bulbs, while the prices rose constantly. Slowly the intense speculation started and batches of some rare bulbs had a higher price than a house and were growing in value. In 1635, a set of 40 bulbs has been sold for 100,000 florins while a medium yearly income in the Netherlands at the time was 150 florins.

now can anyone guess what happened next :lol::lol::lol:

Ah, but it's different this time.

My tulips are my pension! :lol:

Reminds me of the old gag:

What's better than roses on your piano?

Tulips on your organ! ;)

Any chance of some weed from Amsterdam (sorry for stating the obvious there!) :rolleyes:

"Yeah man, ******ing tulips.......can you believe that, those ***** think that houses aren't like tulips?" Deep inhale. Hysterical laughter.

"I think tulips are a fundamental building block of the financial universe."

"They should get rid of that pyramid with the eye thing, and use a tulip instead."

"Yeah"

Didn't someone mistake a priceless tulip bulb for an onion and eat it?

I think it was one of only two or something.

Landed him in hospital too, it was ok though he was out the following spring...
