KONOTOP, Ukraine, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- A 9-year-old Ukrainian boy spent nearly $4,000 on candy in several days, the money coming from his parents’ savings hidden in a couch. ”The disappearance [of the money] was first spotted by his father. He opened the stash and saw it was empty,” said Tatyana Kushnerova of the Konotop, Ukraine police department. After an argument, the son admitted taking the money during his autumn school holiday, $3,300 in U.S. cash and about 600 euros ($635), converting it to Ukrainian hryvnas with the help of an adult acquaintance and spending it on candy, which he shared with friends, the Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported Wednesday. The man, who was diagnosed with a mental disorder, always received a tip for his services, the news agency said.
You know when you hear those stories about how Warren Buffet was like 8 years old and he was already investing in toys and shit? Going door to door selling chewing gum and Coca Cola and what not? Well this little motherfucker is the Ukrainian Warren Buffet. Dude is 9 years old and was able to find his parents life savings stash, commission a retarded adult to exchange the money into Ukrainian Hyrvnas, and invest in 4 grand worth of candy. When I was 9 years old the only thing I was worried about was making sure I didn’t get a random boner at school. This guy is wheeling and dealing with Ukrainian retards trying to get his hands on some Twix. Thats one resourceful little fucker. Don’t be surprised when 20 years from now he’s a Ukrainian billionaire. Either that or he’ll be some Ukrainian junkie face down in the gutter with an old retarded man because he spent all his money on drugs and whores.
