Google Glass will fail miserablyGoogle glass is doomed to fail because it's simply just not a "cool" product, see below for a particularly funny site: I remember when the very first iPhone came out (I got one right when it came out). I would take that thing to a bar and everyone... 2 years 1 month
Quick Favor (will pay $5 but you need Bloomberg)Can one of you please pull the S... 3 years 5 months
Pittsburgh this WeekendI'm going to be in downtown Pittsburgh this weekend (arrive Saturday 27th at 8/9pm and leave on Tuesday early morning). Any Pittsburgh and/or CMU/Pitt monkeys out there want to grab a beer or hang out/party? Ideally, there's some sort of pre-semester/NSO party at one of the campuses (I'm 25, haven'... 3 years 10 months
Energy Equities and Brent DisconnectOk guys, for those of you that didn't listen on my VIX call a month ago, here's another gem for ya. Look at Brent, it's at 104 (forget about WTI, it's useless right now). Meanwhile, energy equities have gone off a cliff (look at XLE and OIH). This is unsustainable. If Brent stays at these levels... 3 years 11 months
Obama Press ConferenceInterested to know your thoughts on Obama's press conference. What do you guys think will happen, both politically and with the markets? I'm very proud of the House Republicans for holding to their beliefs and trying to force substantive cuts and save us from bankruptcy. My guess is they shove... 3 years 11 months

ANT will love thisBackground: I live in a luxury bldg in Philly. Philly is currently trying to pass an updated sidewalk behavior bill, which will be harsher on panhandlers, flash mobs, and other unruly sidewalk behavior. My bldg, has an email list-serv, and I wanted to share an exchange between me and "Earl" on the... 4 years 3 weeks
Sweat Equity?So how many silver bananas do we have to get before we get some sweat equity in WSO? Using LinkedIn as a comp, even a 0.1% stake should be worth hundreds of thousands. ;) 4 years 1 month
Coal Production Max Imminent?I remember reading about this at various instances before. That being said, I don't know enough about coal to either refute or affirm these claims. The fact that there is even a debate at all is a matter of serious concern. Again, not saying it will, but if coal does peak in the very near future... 4 years 1 month

Best pet for an analyst in investment banking?Get a ball python. Very docile, awesome looking (get a cool-looking morph), extremely low maintenance. Though in NYC having pet snakes is illegal, so it's all moot if you live in NYC. 11 months 2 weeks
Altucher: Don't Go to CollegeCollege only makes sense if you are going there to get a real degree. The problem today is too many people getting bullshit degrees, and "business" degrees are not real degrees at most of the colleges offering them ("business" is the number one major I believe). 2 years 1 week
Change my surname to easier land a job on Wall St?I have an 11 letter Greek last name I've contemplated changing but have never done so. I think it does matter to a certain extent but do you really want to change it? 2 years 1 week

Your Model of Life Is WrongYeah, that 3) resource problem is "no big deal". Your suggestion to mine Mars is particularly laughable... 2 years 2 weeks
$50,000 what business would you start?We started Jet Cigs with a $50K investment. I think you'd be crazy to start an ecig company at this stage of the game but just fyi that you can start a real business for ~$50K. Obviously we've seen more investment since then but that was to fund growth. There's a ton of OEM in China that you... 2 years 3 weeks
Did Joseph Stiglitz mess up this IB interview...The return on equity goes up when debt goes up. (To keep the same WACC, it's all theoretical - look up modigliani-miller and weighted average cost of capital). 2 years 1 month
Why does everyone hate hedge funds?People hate hedge funds because it doesn't make sense to them that people that do nothing but move capital around can become so wealthy. They don't see them as creating real value in the way Jobs, Gates, and other famous wealthy people did/do. Sadly, research shows that the general public's... 2 years 1 month
Why does everyone hate hedge funds?The most life-altering document you'll ever read for those of you that think hedge funds actually contribute to society. GMO White Paper, November 2011. Pretty solid evidence that hedge funds pre-fee performance can be easily replicated with a simple rolling put selling strategy. http://... 2 years 1 month
Google Glass will fail miserably[quote=DCDepository] EURCHF parity: When the original iPhone came out, I thought it was a total joke. Jobs was making such a big case for it, to hear him it was going to be this world changing technology, as important as the discovery of penicillin or flight. I just didn't get it - why would... 2 years 1 month
