Lloyd Blankfein Wants To Be Buried In The Backyard Of Goldman Sachs

Lloyd C. Blankfein, chairman and chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs for the past six years, said it’s a “tough job to leave” and he’s unlikely to follow his predecessors into government. “When you think of my last five or six predecessors, five of them left because they went to the government,” he told reporters after participating in a discussion at the Chicago Club. “I would say the government isn’t going to call me up. So that means staying forever or dying at my desk.” [Bloomberg]

    For mortals, what's the difference between staying forever and dying at your desk?

    Lloyd, if that stock price stays below $100 much longer, you'll be getting a government check sooner than you think.

    *collective groan from GS employees*

    How about retiring and spending some time with your family, you muppet-of-a-man?

    I was molested by a 7 layer burrito once

  12. Bob Greifeld says:

    That's funny because I want to be buried in the sand, but just my head.

  13. Im_a_Dude says:

    the backyard for GS is the Hudson. Plenty of people buried there.

  14. Treavor says:

    Hey man, like anyone have a shovel dude that we could like dig a hole or something. Some fat cat corporate suit from that Sachs department store wants to be buried right here in Zucotti Park as a show of solidarity with the cause… man. It's true, I read it on the Internet.

    Leave him alone…..he is just doing God's work

    • guest says:

      Yes, unfortunately he realized quickly he couldn't scam everyone out of 10% of their incomes with tithe's so he refocused on trading and banking efforts

    Why is someone sticking a suction cup to his head?

    • Maninthegreysuite says:

      "The inside surfaces of the arms and tentacles are lined with hundreds of subspherical suction cups, 2 to 5 centimetres (0.79 to 2.0 in) in diameter, each mounted on a stalk." -Wikipedia

    "Yeah, like the guy in the $5,000 suit is going to dig his own grave. Come on!"

  18. …HEY i would like a A3 two.9tdi also… were did u obtain it??…lool, for the major left on the screen.. at 0.twenty…lool

  19. This is not really a big deal. Who cares if he wants to be buried in backyard.

  20. There was a problem from day one. The space bar as well as several alphanumeric keys failing to work and the issue with the battery. It also makes the ipad weigh a ton. I also tried to gain some support from the company but to no avail. Bottom line don't bother wasting your money. It looks fine but it is just a rather large desk weight if the claimed functionality fails. It was a lost opportunity as the product had potential but as others have already said the result fails at the first gate due to poor manufacturing and parts
