Well This Is Just A Little Odd

We always thought that sooner or later we'd make somebody's list...Just not this one.

Problem is, ZH readers are mostly male.  And I don't know about you, but as much as I like Tyler, NOOOO guy gets my vote in this category

oh yeah, how do you know

I got no problem with guys that play for the other team (one of them is the executor of my estate and will look after my wife),... but I'm 50.  Think i'd know by now.  But, as TD points out, Pauson does have a bit of a rack.

Racer's picture

ah but how do you know who not playing for the other team but are for the team that is the opposite?





FOC 1183's picture

After 20 years of marriage, don't really give a shit.  the wife can play for whatever team she chooses.  Could care less

The only thing you ever talk about on this website is your love of guys. The only thing you want is a new boyfriend each week in your comment history.

One would hope you have proof of such assumptions...

Congratulations Tyler Durden. If I may quote.


Tyler Durden

An acidic economics and quantitative analysis geek, Tyler Durden is the mostly anonymous Zero Hedge blogger who both posts as Fight Club's sexualized anticapitalist — played by equal-opportunity attractor Brad Pitt — and almost single-handedly shames on a daily basis what passes for the mainstream financial press.

Whether he's spitting game theory on Goldman Sachs, foreclosure robosigners, high-frequency trading scams or May's tragically hilarious Flash Crash, when algorithms gone wild wiped out about $1 trillion from the stock market in three overheated minutes, Durden has clowned analysts and experts worldwide with econopocalyptic abandon. The probability that both male and female stats geeks might visualize making love to Pitt while reading Durden's sourced screeds has got to be a sex coup of some kind. —Scott Thill

What the actual fuck? I thought they were writing about me. Now I'll have to post a retraction on my Facebook and Twitter. Christ this is embarrassing.

Lulz and congratulations to TD.  Well deserved, if a little bit ghey on Scott Thill's part.

My, I felt this Thill going up my leg.

I was all set to vote for TD, but then settled on the one with the biggest tits.

Robert Paulson made the list?

Sorry Tyler but the early voting results do not bode well for you. Considering the geeks casting their choice are essentially 14 year old basement shut-ins desperate for some type of attention for their deficit, your mug poster doesn't cut it.

If only you could strike a more sexy pose and show a little cleavage or even a center part for your hair, you might have a chance. Consider a new wardrobe as well. :>)

Now that's some funny shit. :>)

After being somewhat late to the party, I have observed this about the voting:

The website full of people who tend to consider themselves WAAAaaay smarter than average have managed to nominate TD no less than five times.  If you totaled the votes for all of the Tylers, he's less than two hundred back.

While I might have your attention, TD.

Would you or Marla consider a "rec'd" button as well as a junked one?

It would be helpful... as sometimes you just want to vote for your fav without getting all about it.

You know what I mean, I'm sure...

Cistercian's picture

 Hey Tyler, I am surprised you made this list too.

  Should we put a few hundred pounds of nitroglycerin in their server farm so they show proper respect or what?

 I think I will shave my head tonight......

bigdumbnugly's picture

we can relate, rainman.

and that writer can speak for himself concerning that last line...   "The probability that both male and female stats geeks might visualize making love to Pitt while reading Durden's sourced screeds has got to be a sex coup of some kind."

Logans_Run's picture

Yeah but TD is the one with the biggest balls!

russki standart's picture

Wow, sounds like someone at Wired has a man crush on Tyler. Personally, I wish Marla would have my abortion.

My favorite highlights:

"...and almost single-handedly shames on a daily basis what passes for the mainstream financial press" and "...Durden has clowned analysts and experts worldwide with econopocalyptic abandon."

Well fuck yeah! I don't give a shit if Tyler's of the XY or XX chromosome- too me, anyone brave enough to do what he is doing, is just plain sexy. Period.

I really have nothing else to say. Carry on TD!

Catullus's picture

Geek? WTF.  You're definately a dork.

cougar_w's picture

But their picture of you makes you look like a terrorist.

gbresnahan's picture

And what exactly do terrorists look like?

bob_dabolina's picture

Tim Geithner, Ben Bernanke and such.

Basically if it has a powerful position in government and i. looks like a gay 5th grader, or ii. has a sinister beard, it probably is a terrorist.

I read for the first time today a term "prolapsed anus" on ZH and I was kinda wondering what one of those looks like.

edit: nevermind...I never want to see that again.

you dont want to be behind it.
