Chartology: S&P at 2100--Maybe the 43rd Time IS the Charm

We've definitely been there, done that.

From Jesse's Cafe American:

We are still betting on 2250 but this is starting to look like the lawsuit in Bleak House:
"...Innumerable children have been born into the cause; innumerable young people have married into it; innumerable old people have died out of it. Scores of persons have deliriously found themselves made parties in Jarndyce and Jarndyce [S&P 2100], without knowing how or why; whole families have inherited legendary hatreds with the suit. 
The little plaintiff or defendant, who was promised a new rocking-horse when Jarndyce and Jarndyce [S&P 2100] should be settled, has grown up, possessed himself of a real horse, and trotted away into the other world. 
Fair wards of court have faded into mothers and grandmothers; a long procession of Chancellors has come in and gone out; the legion of bills in the suit have been transformed into mere bills of mortality; there are not three Jarndyces left upon the earth perhaps, since old Tom Jarndyce in despair blew his brains out at a coffee-house in Chancery Lane..."
