That did not go the way I expected.

Guess Putin has figured out a way to fund his war with Ukraine after all.

I had a shirt in the early 2000's that said, "Dot-Com Optionaire".  This reminds me of that.

How much Polonium tea did the pilots drink?

That must have been hard as hell pushing that helicopter out of a window.

You're all just JEALOUS that he's rich and dead!  Have fun staying alive, bro.

What's a helicopter but a large well air-conditioned elevator?

Has crypto actually been used to fund something useful?
 
2022-11-29 8:55:46 PM  
I'm guessing he was insufficiently enthusiastic about Putin's vanity project.

No pity for the pilot? Or is this a plumbers in the Death Star kind of thing

Being a billionaire in Russia is like not wearing a condom in Haiti.
 
2022-11-29 8:59:15 PM  
Is it too late to grant him some tax cuts?
 
2022-11-29 8:59:36 PM  
Not only Crypto, but Forex as well.

Not a good day for the money launderers.

I've funded some quite useful bottles of single-malt scotch with it.

Authorities have not raised suspicion of foul play in either case.

But then they haven't started the investigation either.

Thanks to recent Star Wars material, in all likelihood people working to construct the death star are convicts, whether or not they are actually innocent or guilty of whatever crime they have been convicted of, and sentenced to slave labor until their death....

"A Russian billionaire has died in a helicopter crash near the French-Italian border"

No one expects the French-Italian border!

I love how Star Wars Lore, or cannon, or whatever you want to call it, for the last 20 years, has been ret-conning the empire in a way to really drill in they are the bad guys.

Because the first movie, which would be shiat by any metric other than VFX at its time, starts with the "good" guys committing a war crime and acknowledging the "bad" guy normally play by the rules.

Like less than 5 minutes in people.

Did he sell his G-Wagon before it was too late?!

Dying in a helicopter crash seems to be worse than the convenience of skipping traffic. If you're rich, you can afford to have someone drive you in a car and then get to enjoy your wealth for a long time.

A parachute made of gold in a helicopter sounds even more useless and hazardous than a parachute in a helicopter, regardless of nationality.
