Was Jon Corzine the first person to answer CNBC's daily question, "It's 4:00 on Wall Street. Do you know where your money is?" with his hands on his head saying, "I have no frickin idea."?

My Blood-Turkey-Content is getting dangerously low. I might need a Turkey IV soon.

Google looks a lot like Microsoft in the mid-90s. Some cool products but they have to have their fingers in everything with a revolt against their products only a matter of time.

I've finally made it! Mark Cuban tweeted the article below and I think that pretty much caps off my career.

Of course, he wouldn't take an interview with me during college but now he's reading my work. Ohh how the tables have turned. (head inflating as we speak)

I got my new Herman Miller SAYL chair today. So far I would say I'm 32% more productive, 136% more comfortable, and have delayed my inevitable back problems by 4.5 years.

Until today I failed to draw the uncanny parallel between Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise and The Motley Fool's as an Investing Paradise.

- I'm the kinda G the little homies wanna be like
- I'm an educated Fool with money on my mind
- They say I gotta learn, but nobody's here to teach me (that's what The Motley Fool is all about)

In short
Coolio : Gangsta's Paradise :: The Motley Fool : Investor's Paradise

However Warren G's version of Regulators has no resemblance to actual bank regulators. They are not regulating stealing of our property and they are not damn good too.

I was almost sad about my conclusions writing this article.

And yes, I'm aware of the irony of using G+ to promote it.

Ladies, your time in the sun is done and we've put our pink away. Grab your scotch and light a cigar in honor of Men's health.

Movember started yesterday and if you want to help change the face of Men's health you can donate to the reigning top moustache of Minneapolis (that's me) at the link below. $5, $10, $100, everything helps.

We'll soon have t-shirts available too with our awesome Team Thick & Rich logo!

At the very least, you can follow my growth to see what a creep I'm going to look like in 30 days.

Line of the debate last night. Rick Perry: "If you’re saying I could be bought for $5,000 I’m offended."

So Mr. Future President. How much would it cost to buy you? $50,000? $100,000? $1 million? I know a few companies that would consider that kind of money a rounding error and would be happy to buy the President.

On Piers Morgan last night I thought Thomas Friedman was very thoughtful, pragmatic, and had common sense solutions for our nation's problems (education, work ethic, etc.).

Then Rudi Giuliani came on and said he hopes the President announces a 15% corporate tax rate and 0% capital gains tax. He also insinuated that Warren Buffett didn't know what he was talking about on the economy and budget deficit.

I would really love to take the Republicans seriously but is this really all you have to offer? Cut taxes, cut spending? Haven't we tried that and showed it didn't work. And has anyone told the Republicans how austerity is going in Europe?
