"A Once-Tight Flock at Goldman, Now Scattered" by Susanne Craig - NYTimes.com
If you're at all interested in finance, success, money, rich people, or people in general, this story will appeal to you.

You'd be surprised. One dude's a pastor. Another guy lost his entire $120 million dollar fortune investing in a Turkish bioengineering company that was trying to create miniature giraffes for sale as pets.
