Ready to kill yourself?  Get ready.  Load the gun, make sure the safety is off, and put the barrel to your temple:

NYC Law Firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom is offering employees $80,000 to take a year off

Sure, this is considered about a two-thirds pay cut for a lot of these top dog lawyers.  But, everybody knows you need to take any sum of money and multiply it by 5 if it’s free money.  So this offer for 80 G’s will probably feel like $400,000.  Its mathematically proven. Trust me.

My favorite part of this suicide-inducing artcile:

As of Friday, about 125 associates had expressed interest. “I think it’s fair to say that the numbers are in excess of our expectations,” Mr. Mallow said.

Yea, I feel for your Mr. Mallow.  Sorry your financial forecast didn’t anticipate people loving free wealth.  Dick.

Insert some sort of For Sure/For Sure NOT joke here I’m too busy tying a noose at my desk
