    when i put on a suit, i would like to think i look dapper

    but i am told i instead look like i am there to ask you very politely as to the whereabouts of the money you owe

    Pony, you are the local enforcer. We know where to go to break a few legs for our legitimate business.

    fun fact

    actually used to do this for a while

    not nearly as cool as tv portrays it

    for example, people do not cower in fear just because you are some looming big guy in a suit

    sometimes, they hit you in the face with a baseball bat and leave you unconscious under a tarp in their garage

    D:

    things i learned: it's actually very difficult, if not more or less impossible, for an unarmed man to adequately defend or even protect himself from a determined fellow with an aluminum bat.

    even if you think you're some bad-ass martial arts guy or something, you block a hit with your shoulder and your entire left arm goes numb and the wind is taken out of you

    and then you take a couple to the head, and goodnight fella

    Jesus, you take a couple to the head from an aluminium bat and I'll be surprised if you're still alive.

    i have had a number of concussions in my lifetime

    a neurologist, following my stroke, told me directly to my face that it is unclear how much of my brain damage is from the stroke and how much was... pre-existing.

    Think of it as teaching others not to make your same mistakes. The money is a secondary bonus. But I can understand not wanting to publish everything wrong you have done in life since you actually have morals.

    I don't know if it would be as effective with a bat, but I find that having a few drinks beforehand helps with tire irons.

    well, there's a couple things

    1. i don't believe that the universe works on some kind of system where people become entitled to good or bad shit based on their lives up to that point. if i did, by all rights i should suffered some kind of massive and unsurvivable retribution hurricane because while most people think i'm a pretty decent bloke nowadays as a whole i've put more bad in this world than good by tremendous orders of magnitude.

    2. i feel pretty colossal amounts of guilt over much of my young life and the idea of profiting from those times even in some side way years later is abhorrent to me. the only thing i feel i should have gained from those experiences is the knowledge that they were bad decisions.

    i purposefully try to tell some of my more heinous acts and shit as big, wacky anecdotes that are all gonzo-esque

    because that makes them less real and thus less horrifying to people, they can laugh about it in a dark way

    it helps, because it lets me be able to talk about these things and express some of the emotions i feel about them but in a way that doesn't alienate people and make them terrified of me

    I think I've probably had two. The first when I was about 6, in a bike accident that I spent a couple days in the hospital for, was definitely a concussion.

    The second was the tire iron incident, that I'm not sure about since I didn't get medical attention beyond the EMTs, but wouldn't be at all surprised if I had one.
