I can jump out of an airplane with a big grin on my face but I admit I couldn't handle the trade game.

I'm just the opposite. There's no way I could jump out of an airplane that's not going to crash anytime soon. Losing $10k after just making $20k isn't nearly as bad as just losing $10k. I try to keep things in perspective.
