A Bil Here and There

I made a relative lot of money on Facebook stock recently. But if someone had loaned me a few billion, I could’ve made a few billion on it for myself and given the money back (minus the 3 and 30 vig) a few weeks later.

Why is it fair that a bank can do that and I can’t? I’m a better trader than most banks, yet I can’t socialize my losses — I must just take them.

Anyway, no one should be doing anything like this in a sane world. But this isn’t a sane world. So who is going to loan me a few billion?
