And wears them! In public! Where people can see him! The previously held assumption that he eats, sleeps, and showers exclusively in suits from Jos A. Bank hath been shattered! (This is almost as disorienting as the time Alan Greenspan was spotted in a tank top and cutoffs while running errands, though not nearly as traumatizing as the time the neighborhood kids got more than they’d bargained for when he came out to yell at them wearing only slipper-socks and his wife’s dressing gown!)

    I once saw Alan Greenspan in a pair of Diesel skinny jeans, scared the living shit out of me.

    If you're that close to get a pic of him, you're close enough to plant a bug on him to get the inside scoop before the statement is released tomorrow.

    Judging by the amount of time you spend commenting on dealbreaker, I'd guess and say that you are a pretty shitty trader.

    Speaking of United, the actors they choose for the United Commercials are such douchebags…

    Yes, direct from London to Jackson Hole direct, but underground, one bomb at a time.

    These days of austerity plus relative stress about taking on debt, a lot of people balk up against the idea of making use of a credit card to make purchase of merchandise or even pay for a trip, preferring, instead just to rely on the tried and trusted procedure for making settlement – hard cash. However, in case you have the cash on hand to make the purchase in whole, then, paradoxically, that’s the best time for you to use the credit cards for several reasons.
