the OP is just a fool.
Cypherdoc, UMADBRO? Bitcoin is a fun experiment, it sounds like you bought coins at $15+ and lost some capital.
Here's why you're mad and in denial Doc: Bitcoin doesn't do anything for you, doesn't generate any dividends, doesn't split and increase in value over a 10-year period, doesn't pay bonuses, can't really be used to buy anything useful in a local (or internet) market, is too volatile to be taken seriously, isn't inherently secure, and could be shut down easily by a sideways fart from the CIA. The only way it increases in value is if the demand from speculators exceeds the demand from mining. This can only result in a super-bubble with a super collapse. Keep bitcoin a fun experiment, it's not a place for real money
You'll make more money in the long run holding 10-year U.S. treasuries than holding bitcoins.
This chart a little better at mirroring bitcoins chart.
CowTipper, that's a great chart! I was going more for a general approach to bubbles with my basic chart. Your chart is really better, but it's deceptive in that people could interpret the current position of bitcoin falsely (lots of people would argue that we're returning to the mean and that value will go up, when in fact it's going to decay and drop over time - whether the price decay is slow and controlled or rapid, I'm not sure).
