–*They all worked at Goldman Sachs.
–*They all had sex with Anna Nicole Smith.

–*They emit a dark blue flame when they burn.
–*They like to use countersunk rivets on everything they build — from computers, to airplane wings to hedge funds to Jane Russell.
–*Many of them either attended elite Yale fraternity Skull & Bones or the Hogwarts School, both of which provide members with an invisibility cloak.
–*Many dropped out of college when they could not find the “World Domination” courses they had anticipated on the curriculum.
–*They were all good at math, and thus somehow figured out there was no money in teaching.
