What’s your guess? Times Square at midnight last night?

Try, the Chicago Board of Trade. And, they’re not just celebrating New Years but the fact the markets — while most Americans were getting battered — rose 10% last year.

See the whole joyous slide show. It’s … priceless (the “Jerry Maguire-ish” #6 especially).
