I'm reading about Worldcom and their bankruptcy, bullshit, lies, and the way they're about to fire 17,000 people to stave off a few of the problems branching from them uverreporting their cashflow by $80billion.

The CEO was loaned $366 MILLION DOLLARS and hasn't paid the company back any of it.

I'm trying to wrap my brain around the concept of $366 million dollars.
And then around the concept of being given that money .. by the company you are the CEO of ... and not paying it back.

How do you ask for that?
"Yes, I'd like to ask if I might recieve another 30 million from you guys this week?"
"hmm... well... what do you need it for?"
"I'm going to install all platinum toilets in my 20 bathroom mansion.. including the hardware inside! It's gonna be great!"
"wow! That sounds cool! Sure... stop by accounting on your way home tonight..."

guh.
fucking capitalists.

I keep wondering "why can't I get a job like that?" and then I remember that I have morals.

"We have pills for that - stop by the pharmacy on the way home tonight..."
