    I wonder how his claim as "the world’s most eligible bachelor” will go down in prison?

    He's a lot more insane than I realized. Spending hours upon hours just holed up in a hotel room, broadcasting his sad days drinking alone online. How weird.

    Shkreli's douche baggery is reaching legendary levels. It's almost cartoon-like.

    When an R Rep says you should be held in contempt of congress after actions related to naked capitalistic greed, that means you really fucked up.

    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    From what I read and heard, most people are not missing the point. They are just able to focus on more than one thing at once. I saw TONS of comments about the fuckers who were up there acting all self-righteous while they are still responsible for a healthcare and pharmaceutical industry that I consider a disgusting human rights violation. That doesn't take away from how disgusting Shkreli is though, and it is not useful to use those two separate evils in the same argument - doing so would most like result in none of them being held accountable. At least in this scenario, Shkreli might be.

    We wouldn't be talking about this if it wasn't for him. That's the point.

    I completely disagree. This has always been a HUGE topic. Seems to me that it's a constant conversation and has been for years.

    Reuters) - Former drug executive Martin Shkreli, who last year became a lightning rod for outrage over soaring prescription drug prices, may face additional U.S. charges of securities fraud, a federal prosecutor said on Tuesday.

    More charges related to Shkreli's involvement with biopharmaceutical company Retrophin Inc could be filed within a month, Assistant U.S. Attorney Winston Paes said at a hearing in federal court in Brooklyn, New York.

    Good. And I disagree that he would not get a fair trial... I can totally see him getting off precisely because the prosecution appears to be on a bit of a (justified) witch hunt when it comes to him. I HOPE they have a lot of solid evidence backing up their charges, because I feel like if their case isn't bulletproof he will get off scott free, along with a little lecture from the judge directed at the prosecution.
    Seriously, is there a less likeable guy in the entire continent who didn't actually commit coldblooded violence? I doubt it. Just the sight of his face pisses me off.
