BitCoin Digital Currency -

Am i totally stupid to think that it's clever to invest some Bitcoins now?

Hey guys!
I've followed bitcoin from the sideline - Listened to Steve Gibson explain it on Security now, so i know how it works technically.
I've followed some of the up/down-turns the currency has taken, and my gut feeling is that if i invested something like 500 USD in bitcoin right now, the value propably would go up sooner or later.. Does that make any sense?
