Ed is in recruitment. The Al Bundy profession for modern times. Vapid, superficial, greedy. God knows how he fits in.

Yeah what about when they went to see how bad it was for themselves and started walking around the suburbs, in and out of empty houses and they had unpaid bills lying out for them to flick through and the guys were like "this is really happening".  And all the pieces to camera explaining all the finance mumbo jumbo.

Not quite sure what the beef with The Big Short is.

It seems to have passed you by that it's a true story (granted, with some artistic license probably taken), and explains the Financial Crisis to dumbarses without an economics degree very effectively (even my Chinese burd could follow it).

Michael Lewis' books are generally excellent but pretty much unfilmable - glad someone tried with this, though.

Well, this is goodbye. I mean, we obviously have nothing in common. I'm a genius, you're all fucking wankers. You'll never see me again.

The Big Short

What a smart film.  I loved the scene where the ratings agency lady was basically blind because she'd just had an eye procedure and that's so funny because you know, her whole business or whatever was blind to what was going wrong or whatever. Not a lot of peope got that but I put the pieces together (because I'm pretty clever) and I could see the subtle message. Had a right giggle I did. Great film.

Brady & Belichick losing a superbowl has some appeal

A true pioneer and an inspiration to an entire generation of musicians.  Had the pleasure of meeting him once in Lagos and he couldn't have been any nicer, spent a good hour with us and was really interested in our take on music and the future of the industry even though I was so baked I could hardly see.  A real old school gentleman.










I've never heard of this cunt.

You need a Super Bowl or two to be even considered great.

I'm gonna read this every time Reid loses in post-season.

The way that team plays, his system, is not a playoff winning system let alone a Superbowl winning system.  So they're doomed to inflated expectations (I think their regular season win/loss is better than the Patriots over the last season and a half or something crazy) with inevitable failure in the playoffs.  If that's top 10 all time I'm not here.

They look like a factory sample for testing purposes.  Like something the machine would spit out to confirm it's calibrated correctly so a guy in a white coat and clipboard can give it the once over with a pair of calipers and give the thumbs up.  Then it's tossed into a huge recycling pile.

Another vote for Rhouses. Baking cakes and flouncing around in Tigers at the radio station or the social media love in or whatever the fuck it is.

It's too much work Dave.  I'm better off taking thoughtless pot shots and getting on with my day.  You've already started though ...

Can't tell if this is a long con or a cry for help.

Although fuckers like Streep have a point they can fuck off and shut up. Too little too late now you dozy cow.

I don't know if I'll ever say this again but I couldn't agree with you more, on all of it.

Take another look at this one.  It seems like a prank.  I mean I suspect Dave is taking the piss but I highly doubt the "designer" was.  What the hell were they thinking - drab grey, mindlessly and needlessly ankle height, ridiculous split for the tongue to peek through, with a pop of mint to make it fun.  Whoever put that together, I doubt they are continuing to work in the industry. This is an abortion that should never have been resurrected from the balled up post-it note at the bottom of the conference room bin.

I'm going to assume you're being serious and just say anything "mid" belongs purely on the basketball court.

Rhouses, enjoying the opulence of the First World as I do, it is afforded to me the privilege to muse over the latest in footwear technology and make bold, fashion-forward decisions. I wouldn't expect you to understand, you're looking at an F1 cockpit and asking where the bullock yoke is.

Pull the trigger Hop Head, it's been great knowing you.

It feels Amish to me to just choose a period in time (the early 80's) and decide anything made after that point is evil and should be avoided.

I should add these are for fashion purposes, part of my "Tech Billionaire" look.

Just want to gauge opinion on these before pulling the trigger:
