In this whack-job of a trading environment, everybody needs to blow off a little steam. Some people turn to hookers, other drugs, yet others combinations thereof. Some finger paint in the park. Some steal their co-workers' yogurts. Some shave off all their body hair. Some lock themselves in the bathroom and gorge on tube after tube of sour cream Pringles, telling themselves they'll stop on the next one and the one after that while the Fabreeze plug-in air freshener works overtime to mask the scent of failure they don't want their families to smell. Some head to Sears and try on Levis for two hours. Here at Dealbreaker we have no problem with you decompressing however you want. Just make sure you do it in a healthy way that's not threatening to others.

A shirtless city man with his pants well below his waist was charged after police said he chased female cleaning women around a Grove Street apartment building around noon Wednesday, exposing himself to them in the process. The 29-year-old woman who works at a nearby cleaners, said she did not respond to his calls and tried to avoid him by walking through a door that led back into the apartment building. But Stephens pushed through the door even though the woman tried to close it behind her and began chasing her around the courtyard. One responding officer said that he looked "zoned out" and was sweating profusely, Blanc said...After being taken into custody, the man was booked into the police jail and began drinking water out of the toilet, police said.

Where this guy went too far was with the chasing of the lady. If he'd left it at running around public with his pants well below his waist, exposing himself to the cops, and drinking from the toilet- no harm, no foul. Remember that this weekend.

Bill Gross Is Not The Only One Who Feels Fat

Are your pants getting a little tight? Have you become convinced mirrors have a personal vendetta against you? Are you too distracted by the rolls spilling over your pants to trade? Do you find yourself veering off course in your letters to investors to talk about your love handles? Is it only a matter of time before you lose your firm billions and/or take down the entire market because your fingers are so big they span four keys each on the keyboard? Do you want to do something about it but are repulsed by the idea of healthy eating and exercise and also know yourself well enough to realize that there is no way you're going to be able to stay strong if everyone around you is eating delicious fried food at lunch and sooner or later you, a usually pretty mild-mannered guy, will be leaping across a row of Bloomberg terminals and threatening to kill a coworker (and meaning it) unless he hands over Ho Ho now? Then round up your tubbiest colleagues and tell them they're in for a real treat. Eric Helms, who founded the four-year-old Cooler Cleanse company with the actress Salma Hayek, says office cleansers now make up 30 percent of his business, and in the last year he has hired three customer-service employees just to handle the details of them. He said there has been a “huge increase in popularity” of cleansing with co-workers in the last year, which he credits to juice diets being more mainstream. “Everyone knows someone who’s done one, and they realize they’re a lot easier to do with colleagues during the workweek,” he said. “People want to indulge” — not sip celery — “on weekends.” Recent six-juice-a-day-dieters include employees at Merrill Lynch and the Carlyle Group, she said. In May, Citigroup began offering BluePrintCleanse in some of its Manhattan cafeterias, a spokeswoman said...About two-thirds of cleanse clients over all are women, but corporate cleanses “commonly skew toward men, especially traders, investment bankers and lawyers,” said Jina Wye, director of sales and marketing for BluePrintCleanse, founded in 2007 by two former Hudson Hotel bartenders looking to swap their poisons. (Mr. Helms said 90 percent of his male customers are part of groups.) Ms. Wye said: “These Type-A men have an all-or-none perspective. If they’re going to commit, they do it whole hog.” Most popular among male en masse cleansers: the Excavation cleanse, described on the Web site as “the most intense.” And if you want to really crank things up a notch, consider gauging interest in a group colonic to top things off.
