Oh really, is that why you assholes started cheering during the screening?  If the French Revolution ever comes here and they put a new reality version of the Running Man only with bankers and stockbrokerrs, the second coming won't have the Nielson ratings that does.

H31N0US: Ebbelwoi: 22 years in equity brokerage.  I can tell you every single hollywood depiction of the biz is over-hyped bullshiat.  Mostly boring MFs even on the trading floor.  You'll find more cokeheads in any other industry.the restaurant business.

There are a lot of cokeheads in this business though. I want out of it entirely but I can't find my way.

Strip naked, draw swaztikas all over your body with a permanent marker, dust yourself with a thick layer of coke, then run laps around your local police station shrieking "Death to the pigs! My testicles are bombs!" If that doesn't help ease you into an early retirement, you may as well accept your fate as a lifetime career man.
