A man in Canada has beaten the record of most new posts on a single website forum in a 24 hours period.Ppauper of Ontario Canada posted 103,500 messages on a website devoted to quantitative finance. This beat the previous record by a whopping 103, 473. Critics dismissed the award. Said "Gardener", a fellow poster, "The website is about quantitative finance, but PPuaper's posts have nothing to do with it. They are just random collections of bizarre trivia. The actual content of his posts is less than any epsilon you can think of."Ppauer, while accepting the award, launched a scathing attack on his critics. "They know nothing and are just jealous. My output is prodigious and prolific and my vision is eclectic."When asked about critcism that his posts are not about quantitative finance he guffawed, "What would they know who only Quantitative Finance know? I posted 103,500 messages in 24 hours on a QF site. That is quantity, and it is on a finance site. QED!"

He needs to make a pseudo-motivational video about success as a "mental transformation" and spam it out to every IB in North America.

(that will keep you busy for a while)Thanks Cuch, but I will politely decline your sterling offer - I have a more lucrative offer elsewhere .PS - I see your old mate Ian Paisley is mellowing out in his old age (80 or so and still counting ...)

Maybe they could invite Osama Bin Laden to play PPpauper in the film. Sometimes I think PP is actually hiding in the mountains of Tora Bora and surfing the internet for clues for about other cultures' failings. It is so OBL.Therefore I think OBL would do the method acting well, as he would have a fine insight into the psychology of being negatively obsessed with someone else's culture.

Don't you want someone similar to represent you. Someone who types away hidden behind a keyboard is better respresented by someone who utters similar pronouncements hidden away in Tora Bora.You deserve better - you shall get better.
