Pretty good, except for the denim clad and be-mulleted Antichrist.

The Antichrist wears a mullet and Billy Ray Cyrus is his minion.

TBH, I liked the book better. Ugly stuff is so much uglier in my head than on TV.

Oh, I believe it. I wasn't about to start up a lengthy novel though when it was readily available to me online though.

The last problem gambling training I went to basically broke it down like this.  If you are gambling to have fun, y ou are fine.  It's no different than dropping dough on a concert, movies, a fancy restaurant, whatever.


But if you are seriously doing it as a way to generate income, to make money, you most likely have a problem.


And it's like only 8 or 9% of people who gamble that ever develop any level of addiction or dependence.

Ironically, you could replace 'gambling' with 'weed' in that statement (well, we'd have to change the bit about making money to 'coping with everyday life', but still) and it would be just as true... even the numbers related to 'addiction are in the same range.

It's (marijuana abuse) quite a bit higher amongst youth though.  And the numbers for problem gambling amongst youth are miniscule, only around 3 or 4%, which is mostly the male population.

You should. The miniseries is terrible. The book is awesome, and is hands-down the best thing Stephen King ever wrote.

I'll get to it at some point, but now I have the gist of the story.

I would disagree.  Legitimate users of medical marijuana are, by definition, using it to cope with every day life.  Otherwise they wouldn't have a legitimate medical need.

Well, there were some attempts to dissect why conversations went how they went, but it all ended up as "DRUGS, LOL" all over again.
