"Martin Shkreli's online rantings about Hillary Clinton prompted a judge this week to revoke his bail and put him in the Metropolitan Detention Center, a fortress-like federal jail that also houses terrorism and mob suspects.

"MDC, as the Brooklyn lockup for 1,800 men and women is known, has over the years drawn complaints ranging from sexual assaults to the lack of fresh air, sunlight and recreation."

There's something to be said about being so completely out of touch with reality that you though it was a good idea to offer $5000 for a strand of someone's hair.

Sadly, I think he's probably right about how much time he'll actually serve for his conviction.

They don't allow smoking in Federal prison anymore so I guess instead of trading cigarettes maybe he can trade for unreleased Wu-Tang tracks.

Ramen noodles are apparently the new prison currency. Besides the non-smoking policy, which some see as just allowing more searches to be justified, the privatization of prisons or prison food service is driving instant noodles. One prison cut from $2/meal to $1.25/meal.

I suppose the prisoners won't be getting the calories or protein to lift weights and buff up. To me, that always seemed a dangerous amusement for felons.

Shkreli won't be formally sentenced until January, so that's already "a few months" at someplace definitely not "Club Fed."
