Rank the top WSO members in order of...

Who you would most like to have a round of beers with?

Me:
1. Edmundo
1a. TNA - obviously
2. DickFuld the fake one not the real one
3. BlackHat - sharpest tool in the hf shed + good stories
4. rufiolove - you read his post about visiting eddie in Paris?!
5. CompBanker - sharpest tool in the ib/pe/mba shed
6. Simple As... - on par with blackhat but his stories aren't as cool
7. Bondarb - WSO's OG
8. Dingdong08 - he'd treat on all the beers

9. NorthSider - i'd like to try to win an argument against him
10. SirTradesaLot - dude knows his shit
11. Flake - idk why, but i hear he can drink
12. brady4mvp - the man, the myth, the legend, i bet he only drinks smirnoff ice though
13. Marcus_Halberstram - he'd probably want to fight after a few beers, fight club style

Honorable mentions: theking, aaron burr, bankerella, in the flesh, acctnerd, thebrofessor, ssits, blastoise, and shorttheworld

Edit: if you post, don't @mention them every time so they don't get their inbox blown up

Trust me, drinking with me is something to be avoided at all costs.

Oh, I can second that one. Seen it first hand!

I'd add @ssit. I'm sure he'd start pontificating about things and claim to have invented the question mark, or accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that the genius possess and the insane lament.

This.

Jun 18, 2014

Some other good choices:

@"going concern"
@"TheKing"
@"duffmt6"
@"louboutins and leverage"
@"Bankerella"
@"missmoneypenny"
@"chicandtoughness"
@"rufiolove"

But, my number one pick would have to be @"Beny23". That would be an incredible evening of social awkwardness.

Jun 18, 2014

We can't forget our recently departed @"VikrumBandit"!!!

Jun 18, 2014

Great list IMO. I would add @"UFOinsider" and @"EURCHF parity" for their political knowledge.

And yeah, @TheKing should be on the list.

Give a little shout out to Mr. WSO himself @"WallStreetOasis.com" and who wouldn't want to hear about all of @"AndyLouis"'s travels?

@"bankerella" was fantastic, and so was the guy in Guy Fawkes mask who did the videos with @"Edmundo Braverman"

And I'd love to hear war stories from some our OEF/OIF veteran monkeys as well. @"cphbravo96" @"FormerHornetDriver" @"cinnamontoastcrunch" @"happypantsmcgee"

Shout out to @"Aaron Burr" and @"Prestigious Pete"

I also remember the days when I was reading this site while I was in HS. Dan Bush, Miss Ind etc. Been lurking on this site for a long time - just registered though.

wow, quite the list...you've definitely been a strong lurker for a while. how can we ever forget Dan Bush or @"Mis Ind" :-)

Maybe Mis Ind will make a comeback one day...

Jun 19, 2014

Haha, Mis Ind was so ridiculous. I remember reading her post during the iBanking Oasis days.

Another cool guy who I haven't seen posting in awhile is Monty09.

Jun 19, 2014

Yup... I remember them. Dan Bush was definitely a troll of a bygone era really. I remember Mis Ind too. Jeez, there are some old people who I remember that I'd love to wonder what happened to them. Man... I feel old...

The person you are thinking of is Midas..

The answer to your question is 1) network 2) get involved 3) beef up your resume 4) repeat -happypantsmcgee

OP, a better question is who on WSO would you like to be your wingman. Got that @"Brady4MVP", @"happypantsmcgee", @"D M", and @"thebrofessor". @"DickFuld" you can tag along pretend to be my rich uncle; you're a very good faker.

It would be a privilege and an honor to get a drink with bankerella and have her completely emasculate me and call me a peasant.
A close second would be buying a couple fake HBS fleeces, getting drunk off mike's hard lemonades, and then walking around cambridge with brady.

@Ravenous - smart dude, I actually put something he wrote in my diary;
@"International Pymp" - lol hope can meet him in real life;
@"brandon st randy" - if he can stop that hocker talk!

Last not not least, the one and the only @"Edmundo Braverman"! Really enjoyed his posts.
