  1. Holy fat f$#@, Batman!

    That’s it!
    The diet starts tomorrow!

    And that Task is such a skinny bastard, too.

  2. Well, Barry, they say the camera adds ten pounds.

  3. Barry Ritholtz says:

    Yeah, well what does too much food, and too little exercise add. . . ?

    you have saved me money bless you for being honest!!!

    Barry, I always took you for a benevolent porker, don’t let it bother you.

  6. Ross says:

    Hey, Bears get fat when they are feasting. Nothing wrong with that. Ritholtz, a hedge against deflation.

    Exercise is key to a happy and healthy lifestyle.

    If the Fed plays its cards right, it may have a buyer for all that crap MBS they are taking onto their balance sheet:

    Quote: “South Korea’s pension fund will no longer buy low-yield US Treasuries because it wants to diversity its portfolio and boost returns, an official said Thursday.

    The world’s fifth largest pension fund will consider buying European government debt or other higher-yielding assets, a manager at the National Pension Service’s overseas investment team told AFP.” End quote.

    …or other higher-yielding assets…have you ever heard of mortgage backed securities…no? …well, let me tell you how they work…

    haha!! Good one!
    (I was going to say this before on several occasions, but your sense of humor is appreciated Winston)

    Barry, how the hell are you going to find time to exercise with all the other stuff you’re doing? Oh, I know. You’ll give up sleeping.

    Damn no audio again.

  12. Bob A says:

    good clip!

    After years of low success, I can tell you that counting calories and avoiding simple sugars (especially high fructose corn syrup) and doubling the veges (soluble fiber) works wonders. First two weeks are a little annoying but after that the pounds just vanish.

    Well, except the last 12, which stick around come hell or high water.

    You looked sharp Barry! I like yout take on Sony. I used to work at Sony before going back to grad school. Looks like they are finally getting their shit together. They are still pushing proprietary crap at consumers, but it is not as bad as in previous years.

    Let me suggest the One Laptop Per Child computer:

    You charge it with a device that is a bit like weightlifting–and that allows you to run the computer. A bit of exercise produces several bits of computing.

    Speaking of tech stocks, i pick GOOG over YHOO anyday for their all-inclusive global coverage, even though the new YHOO media is very good.

    NICE TIE.

    MAZEL TOV, GOOGLE

    We are coming up to the Passover holiday in a few weeks, and I was searching around google and found the Google Israel site, written in Hebrew (as it should). For the uncircumsized, one reads from right to left. The funny thing is when I went to scroll down the page, even the scrollbar was on the left side. Yahoo, by the way, has no Yahoo Israel site. That is why GOOG is looked upon as the best search engine and YHOO just muddles along.

    Thank you, GOOGLE, or should I say JEWGLE.
