  2. all these billionaires are overlevered
  3. The smart ones put their money aside or are hedged safely. There are always a few boneheads who carelessly play in unknown trading territory, whether billionaires or ET posters!
  4. On my way to the bathroom I passed Kirk's desk and noticed a memo that said "Call Cramer about F"
  5. I said when he did that ridiculous F trade that he had snapped.

    Guaranteed Alzheimers.

    His heirs are probably working on getting him declared shortly

    When asked how he felt about losing billions for no reason he said "Easy come easy go"
  6. Kirk beamed up.

    He said "I lived one year too long"

    I was right again, senile.
  8. Any billionare still long on American Auto makers deserves to lose all his money.
