Re: OT: Elizabeth Holmes CEO

One of the problems with "getting tests" is that the only test that is infallible is the "nitrous acid test". You draw up 10 cc of N.A. and inject it under the skin. If the patient doesn't scream, he or she is dead. Seriously [more]

"Berkshire Beyond Buffett"

I am about 1/3 way through the book. It starts out discussing each of the wholly owned companies. Their history, the CEO's etc. I looked ahead and I think that most of the book is a compendium of the history of the "wholly owned". The [more]
