    Chicago police have a rich history of dealing with hippie protesters. This could be good.

    1. Looks like the CBOT could be in deep sit this afternoon.
    2. Looks like protestors will not be standing up for what they believe in.
    3. Looks like too big to fail leads to too lazy to stand.
    4. Looks like I should stop before these get any less funny.

    We all wanted to see what the boys in the pits would've done to the hippies.

    There are still boys in the pits? What is this 1988? Sounds like more of a mirage than the hippies having attractive topless women.

    The boys in the pits went to get steaks in NY.

    It probably would have unfolded similar to when the London oil traders beat the crap out of the Greenpeace protestors in 2005.

    And yes, dumbass, there are still boys in the pits.

    If we give them PMCO will they stop protesting?

    Either way, it's not worth giving him away.

    So, you need a grown man to make you happy, not a boy?

    Settle down peasant, why don't you get a job that isn't being outsourced electronically. Electronic markets are now prevalent and there is usually an electronic contract that directly equates to the pit contract.

    I know this is a sensitive thing for you, and as they say a lion is at it's fiercest right before it's death – so I get your harsh words, good luck on your career dumb ass.

    Bravo young lad. I too am part of the 99%. And by 99%, I mean 99% of the Dealbreaker community that thinks PMCO is a man.

    Saw a couple of these kids on the red line the other day – tan hemp skirt dresses (both were male..), peruvian hats and Iphone 4s. I am puzzled why no one takes them seriously.

    Afernoon Line:
    Concussion per 100 demonstrators: Chicago +1.5 vs NYC
    Avg Weight of Topless Hippie Chicks: Chicago +12lbs vs NYC
    % Hippie Chicks who have at one point screwed a trader/banker: Chicago 40/45; NYC 25/30

    Pls hold all tickets until Monday. Tribune and Post for numbers to determin outcome.

    is that plural of iPhone 4, or do they actually have an iPhone 4S?

    Not that it would change my perception of them, but I'd be fucking pissed if they already have a 4S…

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?
