    In other words, you're still unable to feed yourself in a healthy way if Jo is not around for a couple or few days to feed you and yours. Did I nail it?

    @spindrift416 : Just FYI, the Shiv which you have posted does not have an an acid washed finish. As pictured, it has a tumbled stone washed finish. My apologies in advance for being such a stickler for details ;)

    [Devon is reading the inscription on a compass just given to him by his father Jonas]

    Devon: “To my son Devon - Love, Jonas Morehouse. Fortune favors the man with purpose.”
    Jonas: There’s more.
    Devon: “For he is so driven that all his senses obey his singular ambition, lust and dreams alike, and even love steered straight by one passion.”
    Jonas: Keep–keep reading. There’s more.
    Devon: “Fear not the abyss of moral incertitude and spiritual chaos. His purpose shall be a lantern whereby which no shadow half or so severe shall darken his path. His footsteps forever will fall upon solid ground as no unseen surprise will interfere with progress, such is the man of purpose - a true leader–not just of men, but of all the elements: air, water, earth, and fire conspire against his visionary zeal. Undaunted, he travels forth and bends all these things to fit his majesty. Therein ends this inscription that I write for my beloved and… most cherished son, Devon, who I have passed this compass along to in hopes that he might ponder it from time to time should he lose his way. Jonas Morehouse - Your fat.” “Your fat.” Why did you put that?
    Jonas: Let me see that. Suppose to say “Your father.” Damn fool ran out of space. He should have managed his space better.

    I’d put a Shiv up for sale at $2k just to try and find out where the top of the market is at, but I am scared someone would actually pay that, and I am not wanting to sell any.

    Wow.

    I thoroughly hate this jingle with every fiber of my being.
    If a song could be recognized as a form of terrorism, this would be top of the list.

    When it comes on the radio I either change the station or turn the radio off, immediately. my reflexes are still pretty quick, but it doesn’t matter. The momentary delay between recognition and action means that damn song will get stuck in my head for hours.
    Terrorism is too kind a word for what that is.

    Right?!!

    I’d rather burn my car to the ground before I’d donate it these morons.

    Who in their right mind thinks that this jingle is cute, and who the hell thought that dressing up those little whelps like a wannabe band?!!
    People go Postal because of shit like this.

    I kinda want to punch that kid with the guitar now. Maybe it’ll prepare him for the inevitable ass-beatings he’ll receive throughout life because of this video.
