When the amygdala is damaged, previously threatening stimuli come to be treated as benign.

According to some experiments one typically says that to feel happy/safe you need 50% more than you currently are worth. 

But that only applies to normal people.

I read somewhere that FB plunge of ~19% yesterday was the biggest 1d fall of a US stock ever. Is that correct?

19% is nothing! Black Monday was worse...and that was for the entire market! $ value perhaps. Inflation adjustment though?

It also seemed to me modest losses, but it was written in big on CNBC....
Please don't ask if I buy/sell on Cramer's daily act.
