The only thing I want on the block is the Enron Executive comittees collective heads.

Whats so pretentious about marble covered trash bins? I thought everyone had a set.

I want one of the plasma flat-screens. Too bad the bidding is in London - the shipping would be horrendous.

In case anyone is interested, click here to bid on the Enron goodies.

Ya know, I bet they would never have had money problems had they spent more on the product, and a whole lot less on lavish B.S. for the employees.

Oh my god, what kind of overgrown kids were running this place? A choo choo train to deliver bonuses? I can imagine the big guy with a cigar in his mouth lighting a check on fore and putting it on the train, "Catch it before it burns boys and its yours".

They forgot to mention the solid-gold toilet, and the custom toilet paper with their employees names printed on it.

The Herman Miller "Aeron"- the coveted status symbol of the silicon valley

I wonder if the electric train is anything like the trolley used on Mr. Rogers' Neighbourhood??

Halpas - status symbol? Didn't know that. I use mine for comfort. They are very comfortable indeed. I think that that chair is in the picture in my bio. Sure, $500.00 for a chair is a lot, but how much does it cost for a few months spent at the chiroprator's office?

Pick: Good God! 4 THOUSAND flat screen monitor and 3 THOUSAND PC's?? WTF?? 1,000 spares???

Sometimes they have 2 screens per PC, it's not that uncommon. More Desktop space.
