  1. OK, I did a super short version of this one on page 2, but promised some day I'd flesh out the whole story. Some of this will be familiar to anyone who's read this thread, a lot of it is brand new. **The Key West Story - Full Sequence** Yams (from the Ox v. Yams videos), our friend Barry and I struck out on a fun but somewhat ill-fated trip down to Key West in late summer of 2002. Same two guys from the Orlando hooker story in post #21. We'd packed a few bottles of booze and a couple cases of beer in a cooler for the trip down and had an ounce of high-grade herb, reservations at a little Mo

  4. Update to the Colorado info- Took a trip out there last week and made two stops. First was Organic Alternatives in Fort Collins and as you might guess by their name they were pricey. Top notch place, very nice. Paid $20 for a gram of 22.6% THC awesomeness. Cookies were $5 and were 10mg each. Second stop was Native Roots in Denver. Also very nice set up. Check in, wait to be called and head back. A bit cheaper here, similar grams were $15. Bought an nPen($25) that capes oil. Oil cartridges/drops were $40 and lasts 500 "puffs". Best.thing.ever. 10g cookies here were $25 for six, so a bit less ag

  13. He's exactly as advertised and showed at combine. Tons of moves, lateral agility, but long speed is average. So was Emmitt Smiths. You don't need to be a track star to be a great NFL RB. Move the chains, catch the ball, block in pass protect. Plenty of great NFL RB's with average breakaway speed. STIFF HIPS FOR THE $$$$$$$

  16. If he's going at 2.12 or higher in your draft, that should make you happy - better fantasy players are falling to you. I'm not bashing Abdullah at all, as I'd love to have him on a dynasty roster, but even his most adamant supporters can't be expecting second round fantasy production during his rookie season while splitting that backfield with Joique Bell. Bell is better than he's being given credit for and a grinder type back is a valuable asset in the way this offense is run. He looked great on those three runs - but no one should be getting carried too far away yet.

  17. Well, for me, because he's been the best GL back at Nebraska for the last 3 years (and his backup was 6' 235lbs). He's short, but he's built like a truck for his size, he gets incredibly low, he's got incredible balance, his vision is top notch, and he never stops driving for more yards.

  18. we shouldn't be expecting it for us anyway. This is probably the biggest fallacy going right now except for Patriots fans believing Tom Brady is not guilty. If social security goes away, the country collapses. It will be there for as long as I live, 100% sure.

  24. It is in my mind. In a couple weeks, after an appalling 18 months of playing this game, I will have finally accomplished my primary goal of maxing out my defensive structures. I'll still work on heroes, traps, and walls, but I'm hoping to slowly pry myself away from this addiction and get to the point where I only do wars.Then..... TH11

If social security goes away, the country collapses. It will be there for as long as I live, 100% sure. Exactly.. nothing more than doomsdayers. They may change the rules some, lower COLA adjustments, make the retirement age later by a year or 3, but it's not going to vanish.. there's just no way. Without social security there would be so many retirement age people that were literally bankrupt, out of a home, begging for food in

  30. Best to google this, but in a nutshell: (Again, do homework here don't trust me) The distributions of the royalties are depletion based, so they go to deplete the cost basis of your security. Each year you send in a form for each security you own saying how much cost basis you are writing down, then you get to avoid taxes on the royalty payments.Some of the royalty payments are completely tax free and don't lower your basis. This is only like 10% of it. Varies. The amount you can write down changes the longer you hold the royalty. So the sweet spot is to sell after 2 years and get another

  32. MCL sprain against Purdue in '14 knocked him out of the game. He was back next game and played through it with a brace until the USC game. Other than that, nothing that I can remember. No concussion history or major knee issues. As a 'Braska fan, what's your prognostication for Ameer this season in redraft leagues? I think Ameer is going to be overdrafted in redraft leagues if you play with people who fancy themselves "fantasy experts" (or, if he keeps making headlines, even among casual fans who can google for "sleepers"). I think he's got a legit shot to be the highest scoring rookie RB, but

  35. I've now seen all his runs from the game & nothing has changed about my evaluation. Nothing was likely to change with a few caries or even all of preseason. The regular season is the test. It's easy to get fooled in preseason. It doesn't mean certain prospects can't vault up your rankings in preseason, especially prospects who come out of nowhere (like Victor Cruz), but with a guy like Abdullah, my evaluation will likely stay pretty static during the preseason. Can he have longterm success with his upright lateral move? Another concern I have is he's pretty much a one-trick pony with his q

  41. I usually respect FJ's call on RB prospects, but in this case I disagree. I don't see how you can question Ameer's fluidity or elusiveness. Those are two of his best traits. Not only that, but he's probably tops in the whole RB class in those categories. You can pull up pretty much any highlight reel of his college days and see multiple examples of him making people completely whiff in space. I think he's a better pure athlete than Gurley or Gordon. Are they bigger and faster? Yes, but I would say he is more athletic in general. The fact that he crushed every drill at the combine besides the 4

  43. I'm almost always OK with an ex-champ getting an immediate rematch, especially if they've had some title defenses. Cain doesn't deserve an instant rematch based on his last performance and time off issues. It is incredible, this is who the guy has fought the last six fights: JDS Silva JDS Silva JDS Werdum And now Werdum again. Is this the heavyweight division or a circle jerk.

  45. Johnny: I know people here have Done the typical guy thing and busted your balls about stuff, but you seem like a really good dude. The way you took care of your father was something that moved me and gave me something to aspire to when my parents reach that point. And how you've looked out for and taken care of kids with very difficult situations speaks a lot to your character and what kind of person you are. Not everyone always appreciates what you do for them and at times even we screw up, but from what you've shared, I'm pretty confident that you've made a huge positive difference in a l

  47. Jayrod, SSRI's (ie celexa) do not help with motivation. Ask your MD about a SNRI such as cymbalta, effexor, etc. The norepinephrine helps that. They are more expensive and instead of being a $4/month med they would likely be $25/month cash. There are generics available and likely 1st tier if you have insurance. I take an SNRI. If you take one, you could have your #### together just like me!
