  1. With this recession, people buys less recreational drugs and hires less hookers?

    no.. more people use drugs as an escape. a wall street pill pusher can make some nice coin;especially on xanax . even coke .
    go to any strip joint,not a high end one and if you are clean looking and at least average looking,tell one of the dancers you will give her 500 bucks to come to a hotl room and film her. she will probably do it.

    , is third in line to take over at Bank of America, having been promoted by Ken Lewis all these years and supported by Lewis no matter what. He's also overseeing public bailout monies, which are probably going towards hookers and blow.

  7. This is the dumbest thread. I can't believe it has not been put in chit chat. If you had mentioned anything about the Federal Reserve or congress it would be in chit chat.

    EliteTrader, what a joke. I will make a commitment right now to spend much less time here, it’s just ridiculous the topics that get started here.
