If you enjoyed that story the 'A Street Sweeper's Tale' is similar in excellence, though less based around drugs.

Please stop with this. You are so annoying. Do you really have to argue/spit venom at people in EVERY damn thread? Sometimes you just need to let it slide. If anyone comes across "butthurt", it would be you in EVERY thread I read. FFS!!!

BTW, I did not neg you.

Speaking of annoying......

As I don't post in "EVERY damn thread", (in fact I post in very few compared to some - 1.7 posts/day as opposed to say...3.93/day)......... don't you think you're exaggerating just a tad? If it bothers you so much, perhaps you could scan the thread prior to reading just to ensure you won't have to read anything I've posted. Put me on ignore if it irritates you so much. It's that little button at the top of your page, on the right hand side, called "Manage Ignored Users"

Hopefully the 'venom' in the paragraph immediately above isn't too terribly distressing for you.......

I just don't understand how the majority of threads I read are of you being in the center of arguments and speaking rudely of "people" you don't agree with. That with the extreme use of bolded letters/font colours/emoticons, it gets rather annoying. Why cant you express yourself without having to send "personal attacks"? - something you like to point out so often, along with other Board Rules. Do they not apply to you? Maybe you could try to lead by example. +/- is pretty pointless anyway. The cliques will always back up people with the same views as them. You don't get to lift the Stanley Cup for the most +'s.

At first glimpse, it looks long read but honestly, I wish the story was longer, seems like a lot was left out. Very interesting reading it straight from his point of view.

There were probably a tons of names. They cant follow them all. Not to mention the author seems highly intelligent. Maybe have been using an alias with others he was selling to.

And ironic about the girl in rehab for weed meets someone and gets on heroin.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

So?

You really think he had his full name, including last name in it. It was probably just a first name, which won't get you far.

And of course the number was obviously a number solely for his "business" and it states he trashed that phone as soon things started going down hill.

its not like they were still looking for the killer. They found the matching gun already. Anything else was a waste of resources.

Some parts didn't sound too realistic and I didnt think he could get out that easy, but if this was made for a novel it could be a wonderful read and could seem a lot more real.

I'm sure a lot of things have been changed, but Paul having his number in his phone would mean nothing.
