    I saw this guy walking around NYC today.

    Respectable looking businesman, on cell phone, with an "almost homeless" placard hanging around his neck. Iphone had a smudge on the lens, hence the blur:


    coincidently, christies auction house is right down the street with a 20-30 million dollar Basquiat hanging in the window.

    these are crazy times!


  2. we now know who marketsurfer is? why do you have that placard on you. You look like an idiot.

    harsh! How is the riskfreetrading going?

  4. So what did the rest of the placard say?
  5. The place card said:

    All we Fu()* idiots who worked on the Street as "Salesmen" of bad paper, who worked as Stock Brokers but never told their clients to sell, who work on the trading desk of key banks that helped to bring upon the Credit mess......WE ARE OUTA WORK.
