Rev Dr Giles Fraser - Grumpy Ex Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral

Rating 3 out of 5 (Fairly platitudinous)

One of the most risk averse of all investment banks, JP Morgan, has just made a $2 billion loss, which, if you think about it, is a bit like having faith in the Invisible Magic Friend.

People had faith that JP Morgan wouldn't make a $2 billion loss. They might be right, they might be wrong, but they had faith and they were wrong. People have faith that the Invisible Magic Friend exists. They might be right, they might be wrong. I mean it's possible the Invisible Magic Friend doesn't exist. No matter how unlikely that might seem, anything is possible.

As Pascal pointed out you've got nothing to loose, so you may as well believe in him anyway, or at least pretend to believe, or worship him just in case. Just make sure you worship him in the correct way.

As a Rev Dr, I'd just like to point out that I can do references to Shakespeare as well: Othello.

Nothing in life is risk free, so trust in the Invisible Magic Friend just as you trusted in JP Morgan.
