For those of you currently debating whether or not obtaining a CFA charter is worth flushing several years of your life down the toilet, I'd like you to consider one thing. When and if you finally do pass that third exam do you want the institute to own your ass? Budding pornographers, erotic novelists and really anyone with a taste for the finer things in life should think long and hard. Nickolas Keith Gustafsson (pictured) knows what we're talking about. From the March/April CFA Magazine/Journal of Shame:
Since I'm always working for you, and realize that there are a sizable handful among us wondering right this second what they should be scrubbing from their own websites, I decided to check out NKG's den of sin. Unfortunately it looks like he's already pulled down all the images in question, which doesn't help us. He did, however, save a list of his "Reality Thrillers" (GlamourSex, NoLimit, ANИA, InternetWar, PointRouge, NewYuppie!, Strong Attachment with Sexual Attraction, disruption @ 3G, LawMaker, PeaceMaker, euro @ RISK) and this bio:
