You can get more education from the Mises.org website than I got from nine years in the system. I swear, if I had internet as a kid, I would be a billionaire by now.

Please note - This scam was created by the *removal* of government, and the *regulations* they once imposed.

The removal of my cock from her asshole created all the bleeding.

WOW! Check out this guy!
He has a book out now on corruption in the student loan business.

In one case he talks about a chiropractic student who borrowed $70,000 to go to medical school then, couldn't find a job. He's now driving a truck in Amarillo, Texas trying to pay off his student loan which has now, with interest, accumulated to a half a million dollars! AND, THERE ARE NO BANKRUPTCY PROTECTION LAWS ON THESE LOANS! He talks about how campus financial aid people have been even taking kick-backs from the bank lenders to get a slice of the pie, and said some students are so far in debt now they are even leaving the country! WOW!

To paraphrase Neil Diamond - monopoly providing inferior customer service, ain't no big surprise.

I'm loving VaporSmiths. I smoked three packs of ciggs a day for decades, am now off them completely for almost three weeks, doing VaporSmiths. Love 'em.

Yes, they give you a nicotine buzz. It's nice. And without the side-effects of smoke, which are just generally feeling kinda sick and low-energy all the time.

Mike, if you don't mind, how many cartos are you using per day? I went through seven or eight in the car on Saturday and I feel like I must be doing it wrong.

My wife will never let me start a porn company, so I'll just throw this out there:

I don't remember if I had any particular comment about it at the time, but I find the 18mg to be buzz equivalent to the Marlboro ultra lights I used to smoke.

No, of course not.

This is just not possible. Are you saying that it is not more efficient to carry hundreds of people in a jet than to pilot oneself around in a piston aircraft?

Yes, subsidies going away = high ticket prices. Regulations going away = much lower prices.

Yes, taxpayers are subsidizing airlines. Since the poor aren't paying taxes, the poor are not the ones subsidizing the airlines.

So I spent my first year of college trying to figure out what this "getting high" thing was all about. First time was at homecoming in the basement of the TKE house with a bunch of sixty-year-old dudes. Took a full rip off of a five foot bong. And... nothing.

Did that a couple dozen times. Half the time ended up puking in a parking lot. Sometimes would just pass out, once on the table in the middle of a poker game, once in a snow bank. The closest I probably got to a pleasant experience was when I found myself laughing hysterically in the cafeteria at a dude with a neck brace who dropped his fork.

Since then, I just smoke when I pull a muscle or something. One time it got me through a three-day golf tournament (handicapped - I suck at golf), not being able to walk otherwise, taking a pipe hit after every hole. Ended up coming in third place and won a few thousand bones.

The inefficiencies of bureaucracy and regulation cause air travel to cost more than it rightfully should. If you fly enough regionally, you could buy your own plane for what you are spending with the airlines, and save yourself the TSA rape and scheduling headaches. If it were legal, you could also hire your buddy or non-buddy to fly you around.

I don't know. If you run across a video of a dude with a supply-and-demand tattoo jacking onto a portrait of Mises, it totally isn't me.
