    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

This so awesome. I contacted my broker last night and asked him to buy me 300 shares. When he asked what my maximum bid price is, I literally said "anything - just get me my shares". This is history in the making, and I am going to tell my grandkids this story when they’re inheriting my stock at multiples of the current price.

Truly a wild event with the HFT quote parade underway -- something to tell the grandkids alright.

MDB is a gifted polemicist. I debated him awhile back, on mirc, during one of those open nights that ZH used to have. I think it was him. He carried on a rhetorically pitch-perfect Ben Bernanke logical-reply series that was hilarious. I finally gave up, laughing at such a skilled, on-the-fly impersonation. Later I wondered if he's a poster child for Wall Street's problem of too much clever intelligence applied to financial engineering, but the markets are connected to everything so it makes sense to have some with a wide facility for topical coverage and rhetorical flair.

MDB missed Wall Street flogging over-priced junk (their only speciality) in the 2000.com era

...which makes him about 9 years old

Facebook is worth more than Greece, Portugal, Spain and Italy combined.  And it is worth every penny and drachma.

I love FB, Skynet and Warren Buffet.  I am taking Munger's advice and sewing gold coins into my kimono.

Too fucking funny! Chances are you're a seller!! And if this turd of a company is still around in 20 years the only reason it will trading at multiples of today's price is because our dollar will be worth 5% of what it is today.

If so, then the combination of that plus the housing market plus the job market would be enough to trigger the worst depression this country has seen in over 100 years. Personal equity would be crippled across the country.
