Show Me The Money...Really

I'm working from London today, attending meetings at IBM's Bedfont Lakes location just outside Heathrow airport.
I'm about five hours ahead of the opening of the New York markets, and considering the constant stream of seemingly bad news concerning numerous financial services and investment firms over the weekend, I had to laugh to myself when I read that the Wall Street Journal is expected to launch some new social networking and community features tomorrow.
I hope there's still someone around in that industry to sign up for those new community features.
Last one out, turn off the Delicious tags!
In the case of the Journal, an Associated Press story indicates that with the new Journal site, community members will be able to comment on individual stories, create discussion groups, and ask one another for advice.
Actually, it's very exciting to me to see the major media turn on such features.
As I traveled on the Heathrow Express from Paddington Station back to the airport this morning, I had a short 15 minutes to ponder what questions I might like to pose to the Journal's community using these new features when they become available.
I eventually arrived at the following.
Is my money safer:
A) Stuffed deep into my Sleep Number mattress (sleep number of 35)
B) Filed away in an anonymous Swiss bank account
C) On the "Come" line of a Las Vegas casino craps table
D) Invested in South Florida condominiums
E) Sitting in my non-interest bearing PayPal account
F) None of the above
