A blast from the past ... John Hempton

For someone who likes to hold themselves to lofty ethical standards, he sure had some unethical tactics in how he tackled his fraud thesis on Fairfax Financial. 

 

I'm glad he doesn't mind what people think of him, as I've always felt he had the characteristic odor of what I sometimes wipe off the bottom of my shoe! 

 

A blast from the past that the rest of my life can do perfectly fine without.  That being said, many people on this board became incredibly wealthy betting against Hempton, Eavis, Greenberg, Chanos, Gwynn and the rest of the FFH shorts.  Cheers!

Yes, I made plenty of money from Brolga's efforts, so I've built a little shrine in my basement to worship him!  But lots of coke and cardboard are probably more deserving of my shrine...
