What you are describing is classic pyramid bullshit. His comment about it not being illegal is irrelevant. There is a constant and ever changing line between an illegal pyramid scheme and whats called "multi-level marketing". There are also a lot of loopholes that some of these companies take advantage of to not be technically classified as a pyramid scheme, even though that is exactly what they are. There's no need to be worried for your friend though. Eventually he will lose his money and realize the whole endeavor is a complete waste of time. 

Also, you may want to tell your friend that when he receives emails from the prince of Nigeria, the large inheritance they are referring to doesn't actually exist.

Forum topics are pushed off the front page really quickly on this site, but it was posted a while ago.

Our society in general is pretty hideous, man. These kind of incidents are so common, most people are completely desensitized to them. Look at the (completely absent) reactions from 20-some people who were there. One guy picks up his hat... wow... great work lol.

It looks similar to the knockout game. Even more pitiful, is that's what is considered to be a "tough guy" these days. Sucker punching someone who is completely unaware and defenseless.

Exactly. The fact that being from Cincinnatuh has (in his mind) justified being on a high horse is absolutely hilarious.

Right, but everyone has personal "real-life" experience. My real life experience, along with every single person that I have ever met who moved here from out of state, completely falsifies your 9-12 month timeline. But rather than use subjective and unverifiable personal experiences, I cited objective data ("some chart").

My personal experience with salary also greatly differs from your family members'. It is quite the opposite actually. It all comes down to choice though. Whatever floats your boat... I haven't seen snow in years and if I never see it again it will be too soon.

Gotta say, pretty much everything you've said is false. 

Florida is ranked one spot above Ohio in per capita income and one spot below Ohio in median household income. There is a 5 cent difference in minimum wage. 

In 2012, 36% of Florida residents were actually born in Florida. The majority of people living here have migrated to the state, usually from the east coast and Midwest.

As others have already noted, do it now or you will lose your chance. However, if you are a young professional, the panhandle is going to offer fewer opportunities than the many other metropolitan areas of the state. Don't get me wrong, the beaches in that part of the state are beautiful, but you might want to consider south or central FL for some bigger and better job markets. 

But my advice?... Do it. You don't want the dreaded woulda coulda shoulda thoughts forever. 

After all, I miss Ohio occasionally, then I walk outside in January in shorts and a T-shirt and say "oh yeah, nevermind".

Strings? Smh. 

The vast majority of pics in a simple Google search show him holding the laces.

I think we can all agree that Oden and Conley had/have more talent than Noah and Brewer. The remainder of the rosters would be close to a tossup, with Ohio State being deeper and more talented overall. But therein lies the problem. Any criticism of Matta brings immediate excuses and the same old rebuttals with nothing ever changing. Eventually the metric for judging accomplishment must go beyond simply reaching the tournament, no matter how undyingly loyal one may be to Matta himself.

Comment 23 Mar 2015

Matta had Jamar Butler, Mike Conley, Daequan Cook, Othello Hunter, Greg Oden, Ron Lewis, and David Lighty (just to name a few) on the same team and could not win a title. I think that is all that needs to be said.

Those are some pretty impressive first cars. I had a damn Ford Taurus.

Thanking the universe that I don't have kids, drinking beer, and doing some crossfit for the hell of it. Not particularly in that order. 

Comment 20 Mar 2015

Dude that icon needs to be retired. And secondly, I love my school, but if we beat Arizona I will eat my bracket. If you're being realistic, our chances are slim.

Exercise and eat right. Exercise is one of the best ways to release endorphins and beat down stress and depression. Also you'd be amazed what shitty food does to your brain. Eat healthy and feel healthy. Those are basics and will make a huge change and build a great foundation to get past your depression. 

Secondly, find something proactive to do with your time. Read. Try online dating. Join a gym or a sports league and meet some new people. I'm assuming you are worried about background checks for government or law enforcement jobs as far as your fear of having a record of attedning psychiatric counseling? This can be complicated, but depression is something that can be beaten internally, so the counseling may not be necessary. However, don't rule it out if you start to feel helpless. 

Good luck man. And no matter what, just try and stay positive.
