    Check yo math. That would be 10 Taylors.
    No. It might have gotten lost in brevity, but I'm saying ivy league business students are one percenters in society. And from 100,000 grads, the top 1% would be 1,000. I do believe it's possible to find 2 or more Taylors in that subgroup.

      You should have read sentence two and beyond. But especially sentence two.

        The first paragraph about traders and their skill set is so hopelessly wrong. I need to just walk away from this.

          My bad. I just read top 1% of the top 1% of 100000. But I see what you meant now.

                Silicon Valley was, sadly, put off for probably a year. I was actually wondering the same thing the other day and looked into it. The producer (?? someone running it anyways) is also producing Barry, and everyone decided it would be better to offset things to divide his time better. The good news is that the hiatus apparently increases the likelihood of an additional season after this next. I was reading that they were getting worried about different ways of them falling on their faces was concerned it was going to run flat, so they may do an additional season where part of it is them doing their thing and tackling new startups when they are the ones with money.

                  I read an article about Mike Judge and he stated that this would likely be the last season, and it would start up again in the fall. Too bad, it's hilarious. I actually got my entire office watching it this winter. None of them had even heard of it before I mentioned it. Now they're all hooked. Lol.

                    guessing that is old, as I saw similar, but they are saying 2020 now, and the increased potential of an additional season comes with that, where as if it came out now, another season is almost assured to be no

                      Absolutely love Silicon Valley

                      Itís reassuring to read that the writers are concerned about keeping the quality high

                      which to me means I could get my fix for a couple more seasons .......aaahhhhh

                        This isn't the article I read, but this one states the same.

                          After watching the opening episode of this season, Wags may be my favourite character on tv right now. Also, can I interest anyone with a park anywhere pass?

                            Wags is such a beauty. I love episodes where they feature him.
