The ultra-rich bankers, hedge fund managers and private equity executives of New York City have long enlisted private security firms to help safeguard them and their wealth. But as the mood on Main Street turns increasingly hostile, New York’s financial titans are cranking their security measures up to 11…One executive contacted Insite requesting help planning his escape from the United States in the event the federal government was overthrown, said Howard A. Shapiro, Insite’s chief technology officer. The executive wanted to know how much gold to keep on hand and how to escape the United States by submarine in the event of a major incident.

    Clues: worried about a coup, long physical gold, escaping by submarine.
    Must be an underwater HF manager.

    A submarine? Get serious – this cannot be for real. Now if he'd asked for a battleship and a dozen strippers…

    Gee, I wonder what the CK stands for. You must work at UBS.

    One of the advantages of living in a refrigerator box is that no one knows you're a hedge fund manager.

    He must work for UBS because he said he enjoyed a reference in the post to a comedian who goes by the name "Louis CK"? What?

    Clearly can't be Lloyd. He of all people should know the dangers of being a mystery man who lives out of a submarine

    you didn't hear it from me, but that executive's name starts with a B and ends with Obama

    WTF! I'd booby trap my mansion/palace/casa with loads of body wash, lice medication and shampoo. That alone will hold up against the OWS masses for a couple a weeks.

    I don’t quite understand Pinterest, except that if an individual pins an image macro of “Y U NO Guy,” multiple re-pins somehow happen. Perhaps in case the book covers feature Y U NO Guy or Philosoraptor or Lawyer Dog, things could get Pinteresting. :-)
