No, but just thinking what it might take to surprise you nowadays as far as the more entertaining Bash Brother is concerned.

Last year he was knocked out by Vai Sikahema in a celebrity boxing match in Atlantic City. More recently:

### Scrooge McDuck Update

It would appear I was taking money, taking money money money, while Uncle McDuck was straight makin money, makin money money money. Hard at work studying, the MZA put his biznass school knowledge to work as follows:

ravi: i think your calculations are wrong

by my estimates the scrooge vault is about 120 feet by 80 feet by 100 feet

for a volume of 960,000 cubic feet

10:56 PM just trying to figure out how many gold coins could fit in one cufoot

then multiply by volume

to get troy volume weight of gold

thn reduce to about 80 % capacity

and multiply that number by weight of gold to get net worth of just his gold

remember he had gems also

10:57 PM me: 80? I'd say no more than 50%

he had to dive in, after all

ravi: yeah

80% would mean that there was about 80 feet of gold (the vault is 10 stories high

assuming 10 feet per story

50% full would be a 50 fot dive

and cartoon duck or not he's dead doing that

10:58 PM this guy made a scale model of the money bin

http://www.flickr.com/photos/matsgull/sets/72157602185120037/

money bin is actually 12 stories tall

but i'm taking away the offices and other infrastructure

so assuming that 960K is the right number for voluyme

10:59 PM how do we calc th amount of coins in it

or would take to fill it

11:00 PM let's also assume that all coins are 1/10 oz sizes

which is about a dime (since he did spit them)

(dont think he could spit a full oz coin which is the size of a half dollaar)

me: so 1 coin is worth about $100

11:01 PM ravi: ok

so a dime is .70 inches in diameter and approximately .053 thick

11:02 PM that would mean in a 1 inch height

you could get about 18 dimes

so 214 dimes stack up to a foot

sorry 225

11:03 PM so cubing it

11:04 PM wait so 225 dimes is one foot tall and .705 inches wide

11:05 PM which means you could fit 17 stacks in one row

and about 17 columns as well

so 17*17*225=total dimes in 1 cubic foot

65025 dimes in 1 cu foot

11:06 PM multiplied by the value of 65025 oz of gold which at today's rate is

me: i'm just using $1000 on the high end

11:09 PM ravi: ok so it's $65 025 000 per cubit foot

multiplied by 960000

11:10 PM and taking 80% gives $4.99392 × 10^13 rate

which is pretty obscene

QED

11:11 PM or $4,993,920,000,000

but then again now we have to calculate it against what he paid for it

which given his ruthlessness is probably minimal

me: ha, he may have "discovered" a lot of it

11:12 PM ravi: but assuming it cost him 40%

it's a residual value of 2,996,352,000,000

and his tax rate is proably ridiculous

11:13 PM assume the govt takes 50%

he has a net worth of 1 498 176 000 000

11:14 PM in gold alone

11:17 PM me: that is nene

11:18 PM ravi: of HIGHLY liquid assets

i'll take my postulation/calculation of the year prize now kthx

11:23 PM i demand a correction on the review

me: i'll post it

11:25 PM well done

11:26 PM ravi: MBA money well spent

11:31 PM ravi: oh

wait

it's actually one MORE zero

so gold of 14 trillion dollars

11:32 PM which is almost 3.8X the amount of gold EVER mined

Touche, Mr. Mackey, touche.

### Tony LaRussa Said Something Clever Once

From Ron Darling's new book, after talking with his Oakland manager Tony LaRussa about problems at home:

Finally Tony said, "Listen to me. As a human being, I care. But as your manager, you've got to start winning some fucking games. This is ridiculous."
