    Interesting story about a college kid who stole 3 billion dollars.

    And was living right there in Athens. Partying.

    Talk about your tortured logic. Only an attorney could pull off this corker. Can't believe he only got 1 year. Dude should be doing about 15 -20 years.


    “The government has certainly not been hurt by Jimmy’s conduct whatsoever,” Bachner told CNBC. “If Jimmy had not stolen the coins and the government had in fact seized them from [Silk Road operator Ross Ulbricht] they would have sold them two years later in 2014 as they did with other coins.”

    At that point, the government “would have gotten $320 a coin or made somewhere about $14 million,” Bachner said. “Now, as a result of Jimmy having them, the government has gotten a $3 billion profit.”

    All of this could potentially work into the plot of Threat Level Midnight II.

    Which we all hope you are doing.

    I'm starring in my own production of Threat Level Crypto II. The first went in the bin, so I went straight for #2.
