Keith's Word of Warning: Diesel Fuel

When your uncle hands you a fuel filter that he just removed from a Freightliner semi truck tractor, do not hold the filter between your arm and torso as you bend over to pick up a gasket off the ground, because the fuel filter is filled with diesel fuel that will pour out over your shirt and jeans and soak all the way through to your underwear.

Situation Wanted

I feel certain that given my current skillset I could pilot an investment bank, savings and loan, and/or an insurance company into the ground with at least as much efficiency as the Dick Fulds of the world, but at a much more reasonable pay rate.

Fuld took home in the neighborhood of $350M over the past five years; I would have been willing to croak Lehman Bros for $80K per (plus snacks of course) and I can almost guarantee I would have done it in half the time.

The Free! Enterprise! System!

This is from February 2008, when the Bank of England nationalized – ahem, nationalised – Northern Rock Bank, but pretty much all of it applies to the U.S. banking system over the last two weeks.
