FAR OUT FRIDAY: 10 most outrageous Goldman Sachs elevator tweets
Many Canadians share this opinion of the financial sector: that it is made up of greedy, arrogant and unprincipled people. And it is tweets like these that only serve to confirm that opinion.

The successful Twitter account, @GSElevator, supposedly chronicles conversations overheard in the elevator at Goldman Sachs.

Run by 34-year-old John Lefevre, the account boasts 640,000 followers and earned Lefevre a six-figure sum for a book based on the tweets.

Insurance Business picked out some of our favorites, which are alternately shocking and amusing:

1.    Only Neanderthals resort to violence. I prefer crushing one’s spirit, hope, or ego.
2.    Poor people eat so much fast food you’d think their time was valuable.
3.    Vegetarian is an ancient derogatory term for an idiot who couldn’t fish or hunt.
4.    If there’s a hot chick behind me at the ATM, I’ll always leave my receipt in the machine so she can see the balance.
5.    Most people wouldn’t even be the main character in a movie about their own lives.
6.    You don’t feed wild animals b/c they become dependent and can’t fend for themselves. How’s it different for poor people?
7.    You can always tell which people are riding bikes for exercise and which ones are doing it because they can’t afford cars.
8.    I wear a brand new pair of socks every day. That’s probably my only indulgence. That, and watches…And wine.
9.    The lottery is just a way of taxing poor people who don’t know math.
10.    Am I the only person who rooted against Robin Hood, the world’s first thug communist?
