For those of you that want the fictitious version of life as an Irish Traveler, you can always rent a flick called Traveller. It's about the scamming way of life and gypsy-like existence... I saw it a long time ago, but I remember it being pretty good.

Moved, had been accidentally posted to wrong thread.

Unfortunately it appears that a person has greater chances of winning at "lawsuit lotto" than at the lottery itself. Until we get meaningful tort reform we will continue to line the pockets of shysters at the expense of the public at large.

Shysters are killing our medical care - highlighted by the number of physicians retiring early because they can no longer make a living and pay malpractice insurance premiums.

Another example is the "toxic mold" problem that has been imagined and merely forms the 2000's version of asbestos fraud...

Yes, I live in Texas where trial lawyers rule and the common man looses. Try to find a physician in south Texas and look at our states homeowners insurance mess.

Rrrrrrrrr...

With Bill Paxton and Mark Walhberg, I should be able to get there in four, no five, degrees.

Sorry - Bill Paxton in 1!!!! Apollo 13
Mark Wahlbeg in 3 - To Diane Lane in Perfect Storm, Her to Tom Cruise in The Outsiders, Him to Kevin Bacon in A Few Good Men


I could play this game all day.

That was BEFORE Ashley made her timely appearance. Thanks, Nerudite. I was trying to figure out how to gargle my imagination.
