1. Fool, work never stops, lazy slob.
So even between your incredibly hectic work schedule and the extravagant wedding of your daughter, you have hours and hours of free time which you spend posting on this board? Also, you claim that the wedding ceremony itself was last night, yet you were posting nearly continuously on this thread from 2.42 PM to 8.04 PM PST, which is 11.42 PM to 5.04 AM in France.  Are we to believe that you left your daughter's wedding early, went to the office, and spent the whole night posting on the Style Forum? I think you have conclusively been established as a fraud.  Nice job, ajs317.
Dumb is all I can say, yesterday was the wedding ceromony, comprising of just prayers etc. it began at 6PM and concluded by 10PM. After that I went to the Office in Paris to deal with Ispat Inland in the US, as there were a lot of pressing issues. however, things go very slowly at times like that, when you are making long distance contact over the phone "I'll call you back" is a phrase I hate, therefore I went on the Styleforum in the interim period. I do not expect you to know the structure of a Hindu wedding ceremony, but I also don't expect you to guess things. Tonight is the reception, and moreover, if it is leading to suspicion as to why I am posting now, I am just leaving, and only checked back because it was quite an involving conversaton. It is only 7.37 in Paris now, plenty of time to get sorted.

The Old Testament is 1. The Jews book, and was simply adopted by Christians to give their religion a bit of backing. 2. That was still way after Hinduism.
May I also bring this back to your attention Bryce, as you have no comments...

You know its kind of distressing to think that Kalra is Mr. Mittal. From previous PM conversations he had me convinced that he was Napolean (The dictator, not the cake). JJF

Okay, I have a little confession to make. I am not in fact a struggling postdoc - but I do have an advanced degree, and it was fun for a while to play the part. You may have heard of me (at least, I hope that you have.) I'm in fact Michael Eisner, in Boston for a couple of years to think things over. The truth is, the company just lacks vision. Stockholders are so caught up in analyzing quarterlies that they lose sight of the big picture. I prefer to think in terms of five year plans, and of course, not all of them succeed, so it's perfectly understandable when we have a five or ten year downswing in profits. Besides, I really think that Disney needs to expand its customer base - thus the non-money making hiugh end "Disney Vintage" line and the collaboration with Brit designer wunderkinder (can never get the aumlauts right) Kin Jones. Anyway, ranting aside, it's been fun on the forum. I'm going to continue posting under this identity (have come to like it). Great forum - I've learned a lot.

An enterprising investor could short Mr Mittal's companies and then make money as they go down the tubes while its leader becomes increasingly involved in a pointless Internet flamefest. ImageWIS, or anyone who's doing this, could you at least cut me in? Nothing like arguing on the Internet to fill time between work in the France office and pesky daughter's wedding events.

I can get into The Ivy or Cafe de Paris with less than an hours notice, you cannot
Okay, actually, I can as well, and have.  I like a lot of the shops on N. Robertson, and would get shanghaid into lunch at the Ivy on a semi-regular basis. Actually don't like the place. The food is mediocre, and the crowd is ladies who lunch with their more money than taste Dior sunglassesm, and tourists. BTW, the Ivy is not *that* hard for anyone to get into. It's all pretense in any case.

Different Ivy, but your description is still apt. The London restaurant is more exclusive, but if you're "richer than Hitler" perhaps they keep a special table for you...

Someone who knows what you're doing, just check his IP address and see where he's posting from. I don't know if it's sadder if he or is not who he claims to be.

Pretty nice piece of satire for a science nerd.  Dood, I have to earn the degree before I even receive the pittiance that you make. I wonder how long we can make this thread?

It was eight years ago that Mohan Mittal was quoted in The Economist as saying: "The day you go high profile is the day you begin to fall."

Mittal's new building was extensively renovated during the 1990s by David Khalili, an Iranian-born art collector and financier who imported marble for its floors and pillars from the quarry used for the Taj Mahal.

The mansion is 55 times the size of the average UK home and has parking space for 20 cars. It was created when the former Egyptian Embassy and a one-time annex of the Russian Embassy were knocked together.

Mittal has declined to comment on his purchase, but a friend of the tycoon told The Times: "Lakshmi wants to become part of British society and hopes this home will further elevate his status. He is so rich that the cost is immaterial."

Assuming you're actually Lakshmi Mittal... You've got nothing to prove to us "small fry."  If you want to feel like one of us, come out and have a drink at a "commoners' pub."  You sound more and more like a diva/prima donna afraid to get your hands dirty, sitting in your office all day with people to tend to your every need.  Do you clean your own posterior?  What's your incentive to leave whatever supposedly great things you've got going on to come chat it up with us?  If you've got two dozen supercars, don't waste your time telling us about them.  Take your wife out for a ride - or let her take you for one.  Those working for you will be loyal as long as they've got a paycheck coming their way.  Otherwise all you've got is your family, and hopefully some friends who like you for reasons unrelated to your wealth.  You probably don't use a credit card much simply because you've got an unlimited line of credit at most any place into which you walk.  For the rest of us, have you ever thought that some of us carefully keep track of what we buy and pay it off at the end of each month?  We pay zero interest to the credit card company, keep our money in the bank a little longer which allows us to earn a little more in interest, and to top it all off, earn miles or cash back. To Jon(ImageWIS)'s credit, he may have a billionaire wasting his time online arguing with a college student over some pointless issues.      If that's the case, maybe it's time for you to return to college Mr. Mittal, or maybe even LKG. Here's hoping you're not some sicko "playing" steel magnate online.

You can have all the money in the world, as well as all the power that comes along with it.... But If you're an ugly motherf*cker spending time being arrogant, condescending, and trivial - spending large amounts of time arguing and bragging - putting down the spelling mistakes of others...what kind of life do you really lead? Seems as though money truly doesn't buy happiness.

That Special Olympics poster was quite hilarious. Is this a StyleForum record? 17 pages of responses? I'm quite sure Hitler had more artworks. Even if the source of those artworks were of an infamous nature.

The Poster was funny however I was laughingly reading it to an acquaintance and caught myself too late as he has a child that cannot walk that well. I dont know that the 17 pages is a record per se, but the speed in which they went up I think is. HOWEVER, if you subtract the conversational "banter" between Jon and Kalra you arent left with that many pages. Speaking of which I think an honorable mention is in place for Jon for maturely backing out and not continuuing the discussion. JJF

Well, it's likely Jon was having to turn in a term paper or something while the "steel tycoon" had ample time to flame about on a style bulletin board. Or maybe he has people that can do that for him. And as I read through this thread, I was hoping for Ernest to weigh in on the tycoon's picture: "you look like steel baron on farm."
