I know, it just blows your mind to try and think about how money much that really is! :shock: It'll be an interesting trial to follow.

Not caught up in Enron myself, but I feel a touch of empathy for those who lost their jobs, and more. My guy has had the misfortune of working for two companies inn the last five years who have had similar fates (on much smaller scales, of course). That sinking feeling of knowing that great income has been pulled away. Gut wrenching. :(
In fact, as we were sat in the cinema watching FWD&J as Dick loses his job, he leaned over to me and laughed "that's us!". :lol:
Not that it's very funny, when I think about it. :roll:

About the Enron thing, I'm afraid those jokes refering at that kind of cases won't work overhere. Cause we don't know what it's about, the news didn't make it here.

Well, to be fair, there's only one direct Enron joke in the film. But the basis of what happened in FWD&J, to Dick's employers, is very similar. But you don't have to know the 'ins' and 'outs' of it all.

Mind you, Enron was a global collapse really. I thought everyone knew about it? :? Clearly not.

Well, we had Lernaut & Hauspie overhere, that was a very big thing, maybe they use that in the subtitels instead. Lol. Really, sometimes the translations are amazingly pointless and dumb.

But this week the documenterie 'Enron' is released overhere, maybe I'll check it out.

Worth a watch maybe.
Mind you, it's the ole story of corporate managers fiddling the accounts to make it look like they were doing well, when the opposite was true. (Allegedly!) Huge fraud. I think it was the massive scale of it that was so unbelieveable. And just how many people must have known.......?
