TL;DR - Dudes make startup. New startup intrigues venture capitalists. Dudes jacked up on adrenaline, red-bull, and sudden influx of easy credit wildy inflate numbers and market interest. Before dudes realize what happened they are in debt up to their eyeballs. Venture capitalists say "welp - sucks to be you - pay me."

It's a loooong tragic story. One that will never be repeated again I'm sure...
