    AS rocking the orange jumpsuit would be a nice accompaniment to the write-offs. That pic is great.

    Flowers will take any meeting.
    I was a jr. MD at Bear and was pimping a bucket shop (no..not bear) and he showed up, went hru the drill and half way thru the meeting reached over to the ice bucket and grabbed a handful of ice and started chewing on it….
    He is a one trick pony though

    If you accuse sir allen of having a heart attack he will punch you in the face

    I worked with Flowers. He is far from a one trick pony. The guy can do square roots in his head, and is one of the smartest dudes on the planet. And anyway, if my one trick could make me a billion out of the box, I would take it. How about you?

    Sir Allen – A heartless bastard? We’ll soon find out.

    doing square roots in your head is about as useful as having square boots up your ass. why didn’t he calculate what the square root of 0 was when he invested in HSH?

    Re: Flowers, lesson #1 for investment managers of all types should be, never let the press photograph you looking all serious and shit sitting in front of a chess board. No upside in that kind of picture.
