Book: Liars Poker
Author: Michael Lewis

“Mortgage traders were mean gluttons. Nothing angered them more than being without food, unless it was being interrupted while they ate. They would holler at Matty: “Hey geek! how about some food”.. Matty quickly filled as many plastic trays as he could carry with fries, burgers, coke, candy and a couple of dozen chocolate-chip cookies. Then he sneaked past the guard without paying !!………….. Got a call.. we are from SEC and investigating a food theft at Salomon Brothers last week”

@Mini Challenge: Re-reading

What book or books do you return to read again and again and why?

Now if I think about it, the book can either be ‘The last lecture’ or ‘Shantaram’. These are the books where-in you know what to expect and still savor the whole journey.

@Mini Challenge: Webcomic

What a fun challenge.. brings back many good memories though.. I have been an ardent fan of ‘xkcd‘ and ‘abstrusegoose‘. These two in particular, maybe, because they cater to my geeky needs :P.. I then started following ‘Questionable Content’ and simply loved it. I infact started my own draft of a webcomic inspired by the flawless artwork in QC.. shelved it due to time and resource constraints though…
