    I enjoy the thought of someone clicking the "cut-off jean shorts" tag one day and getting presented with this as the first picture.

    Ray Dalio being not gay in 1976.

    Thumbs up if your sexuality is open to interpretation.

    The threesome reportedly had a falling out shortly thereafter, but rekindled the relationships in the late nineties. Said Dalio on the subject years later; “its all water under the bridge now.”

    If we all had to answer for outfits we wore back in the 1970's, I think a whole lot of us would be in trouble.

    More evidence that drugs were way too abundant in the 70s.

    What do you expect when the wives forget to do the laundry?

    From Clusterstock: We don't know who the guy in the middle is, but we're told the guy on the right is none other than Bill Murphy, the founder of GATA, a group whose mission is to expose the government's long term manipulation of the gold market.

    So yea, repeat that for the next thirty odd years with some rubbish about gold market manipulation and sounds like we've got this guy's life dead to rights.

    As long as they were having promiscuous sex with many anonymous partners without protection while at the same time experimenting with mind-expanding drugs in a consequence-free environment, they were sound as a pound.

    I think you mean when the (cabana boys) forget to do the laundry.

    I'm not sure who has a more ironic boner lurking beneath the surface – Dalio, or the guy in the Custom Shirts ad.

    His name was Raymond,
    he was a showgirl
    with a birds nest worth of hair and his jeans cut down to there
    he would merengue and do the cha-cha
    and while he tried to be a star
    Billy looked out for gold bars
    across the crowded floor, they worked from 8 til 4
    they were young and they had each other
    who could ask for more?

    at the Copa, Copacabana…

    Shortly before the photo:

    Analyst: "Mr. Dalio, I really believe Music Corporation of America is our next big winner, they recently created a record label and have signed the likes of Elton John and Neil Diamond!"

    Ray: "Yo man, you still haven't answered my question. Why, MCA?"
