Well This Is Just A Little Odd

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.

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

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. :>)

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.


Fri, 01/07/2011 - 00:52 | 855090 illyia

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...

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!

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.

Yep the current issue of Wired mag has some essay written by Patton Oswalt, sexy geek candidate #1 on Tyler's link, but of much greater interest to ZH'ers will be the story starting page 90, titled "Bull vs. Bear vs. Bot".  Great read on how Wall St came to be ruled by algorithms. Look for it next time you're at Borders.  For you quants/techies out there, Wired is where it's at.  Last year they did a COVER story on P= Phi(A,B,y).  Another great read, even for the uninitiated.

Sorry to give you an inconvenient truth, but Al Gore is the hottest geek. You just have a popular website (in the Anthony Michael Hall Sixteen Candles king-of-the-geeks sort of way).

While Al on the other hand, invented the internet and discovered global warming!!!

I didn't spend hours of my youth drinking Jolt cola and yelling at my sister for picking up the other line which interrupted my C64's connection to the local BBS for such an injustice to occur!!
