    I love that they seemed to be making their own doc about how great they are and it turned into this.

    I thought the pacing of the doc was very slow and a bit boring

    The guy with the bitcoin tie... wow

    I’ll need to check out the book. They’re doing a movie adaptation with I believe JLaw as Holmes. She should be able to pull off the hot/crazy thing with little problem.

    Wish I could find a clip of her real voice. That deep voice shit is part of her act.

    HBO doc wasn’t very good imo. Left out so much about Sunny, and really didn’t do a good job of exposing the bullshit. Worst media about the story I’ve seen/listened to/read so far.

    I was on the fence about it, until I heard the voice.

    She sounds like Will Ferrell's Janet Reno impression from SNL.

    I couldn't get enough of her voice and overall look. It was just so fascinating.

    The HBO doc was pretty lame. 20/20 ran a 90 min doc on friday. It was much better. Or just listen to The Dropout podcast for a deeper dive.

    To be fair it threw me off for a while because the lighting tried almost to hide it instead of just letting it be leaving me questioning whether or not the other half of his beard was there or not.

    She’s young and blonde and that was enough to put a spell over some of our countries most distinguished elder statesmen.

    Proving once again, some of the "smartest and brightest" in government, academia, business and media are gullible morons. The fact that George Schultz still took her side over his grandson's, in light of the evidence and bracing by the lawyers is incomprehesible.

    For those wondering about her voice. Starts at 6 minute mark.


    Edit: Just finished The Dropout. Im not in the business, tech or investing world, but to me, it seems unreal that a company could bring a product, especially one that would be such a game changer, that far and with that many people investing, to only be a complete fraud.
    People deserve to lose their money if they're investing millions in stuff like that without doing their homework. Just Wow.
