    I know on ferrari chat(old board) there are many silver spoon threads, and some bashing and stuff, and noobs ask the same questions always.

    would it be pertinent to make a thread that asks something like the following questions?

    what university did you attend, major, masters/undergrad/phd?

    what do you do for a living now?

    what you do for a living today, is it related to your college education at all?

    was your ferrari financed? did you save and purchase it outright?

    your age?

    would questions like that be good for the site in a thread? if so, we can start here

    I recently graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in Economics

    I am currently unemployed but looking. If anyone on the board has some connections or can help me out I'd greatly appreciate it. I want to go into options trading or I-banking. Just email me for a resume!

    I don't have a Ferrari nor will I have one anytime soon, but I'm a long time enthusiast, and don't think it's unreasonable to hope to own a Ferrari by the time I'm 40.

    I'm curently 22 years old, I will be 23 next year on Feb. 2, so for a b-day present you can all help me find a good job, or at the very least buy me a Ferrari. :)
