I had an acquintance in late high school who managed to get arrested letting the air out of a Police Car's tires at a local Tim Hortons.  For real.

I think the $2B comment is in relation to Fairfax's earnings in 2008, not his net worth.  Am I correct in the context of the title?  Cheers!


That must make the CEO of Exxon feel good.  The $45.2 billion dollar man.

I didn't even think about your Italian heritage when I said it.  I was just thinking we could do it on the way to the Steak'n Shake in Pennsylvania!  Perhaps, with respect to Prem's heritage and mine, we'll just throw "Butter Chicken" at Alec Scott's vehicle...or perhaps some really oily samosas!   ;D  Cheers!

There is to be no wasted butter chicken or, heaven forbid, mini-burgers... Please don't do it... ; )
I was just trying to be funny... you're taking it too far!
Butter Chicken is way, way too good to waste (kinda like throwing a plate of momma's pasta at someone - very wasteful, and borderline sacrilegious!)

I think you folks are taking the accent comment way too harshly, I thought it added to his humanity and intelligence as it shows he knows more than one language.  I thought the article was very good, and made me wish I could meet the gentleman.

I don't think a lisp is an accent.

Perhaps the author was trying to broaden the appeal of the article, you know, for seventh graders to enjoy it too.
