Confessions Of A Las Vegas Stripper

How close are you to completing your medical degree?

Nice, I love the cliches. Used to be one but sadly no plans to complete. Going in a different career direction

How did you get into stripping?

Long story short, I was a waitress at a shitty restaurant. I saw an ad in the paper for a cocktail waitress at a strip club. Went in for the interview, the manager said I was too pretty to waitress and I was going to dance. I told him to go fuck himself. Then I figured I couldn’t judge it if I didn’t try it, so gave it a go! I actually think it’s super fun. I’m outgoing and don’t have any body image issues so it’s great.

whats it like to argue with flat earther

Once you start asking questions and show you don’t believe their ridiculousness you will be called silly “insults” like globie, globetard, globehead, sheep, sheeple, troll, etc.

At the absolute best, They will refer you to their leaders YouTube videos to “do your own research” if you start making too much sense for them to handle.

There are several that livestream on YouTube pretty often, and the chat can be a place to interact with them if you don’t insult them and don’t care that they try to insult you.

What Does The CEO Of A Large Company Do?

February 12, 2020 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Experiences |

There is no “typical” week, as my job is a non-specialized function. Thus, I typically spend my time working on X (see below), plus facilitate decisions on whatever critical issue has been escalated to my level. I say “facilitate” instead of “make” because sometimes I’m not the best person to make a decision, but instead I push people to sharpen their thinking, confront ambiguity, etc, in order to render a decision, especially on tough issues.

X is defined as an always-varying combination of 1) things in my key areas of personal strength, 2) areas where, especially in a small company, we have not yet hired key people to lead that area but which still need to be done, and 3) areas where quality of execution is not sufficiently developed to achieve key strategic aims.

What Does It Feel Like To Starve To Death?

What Does It Feel Like To Starve To Death

(photo: @lithuanianviking)

This is an excerpt from a book called What It Feels Like. This is from the bit written by a guy who, with some other men went on hunger strike while he was in prison.

“All we could consume was water and salt so our bodies could perform their natural functions. We dipped our fingers in salt about six times a day and drank about 6 pints of water so our kidneys and liver were flushed.

Your body fared a lot worse if you had a lot of fat. It burns the fat before the muscle and fat burns with a toxic residue that puts the kidneys under a lot of pressure.

A Day In The Life Of A Schizophrenic

February 10, 2020 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Experiences, TRUTH |

day in the life schizophrenic

Let me run you through a day in the life of my personal brand of schizophrenia:

7:00 am: Wake up and lay in bed for awhile. Although I live alone, I hear footsteps throughout my apartment. I start wondering whether someone broke in during the night, so I get up to check the lock. Not only is the dead bolt still latched, but the chain is also still in tact; however, the footsteps are still in the kitchen, and I have to check the door and whole apartment at least three more times be sure I’m alone.

Confessions Of A Former Armored Truck Driver

How big is the risk? Is there a rough estimate on how big the risk is of being robbed?

Messengers being shot in the back of the head while loading cash into ATM is a common thing. Granted, your head needs to be on a swivel. If you allow someone to walk up on you like that…. that’s essentially you signing your own death certificate.

Did you get to carry any handgun you qualified on or did you have to use the shitty company guns?

Garda was issuing revolvers for the longest time. They sold them 1 year before I was hired. We qualified with our own personal firearms.

6 People Describe What’s It Like To Smoke Spice

whats it like to smoke spice

I took 3 strong, albeit very smooth, hits from my water bong in my dark room alone, and then it was only a matter of a few minutes before I could feel the effects kicking in. I tried to surf the internet, as per my usual activity while high, but suddenly, I felt a dramatic and precipitous shift coming on. I could tell immediately that the stuff was strong and I may have bitten off more than my head was ready to handle.

4 Women Describe What Life Is Like With Big Breasts

January 29, 2020 | No Comments » | Topics: Life Experiences |

1. Imagine having a huge set of balls on your chest, that might give you a decent idea.

Like balls, they hang and get sweaty. But they also feel like two heavy bags of sand are slapping your chest (or stomach, depends) when you run or jump.

They get swollen and feel unbearably sore every month, for the unlucky ones.

If you have big boobs and need to wear a bra, you deal with a hard, nagging, poking, wire under your boobs until that beautiful moment when you can take off your bra.

What’s It Like To Have Alzheimer’s?

whats it like to have alzheimers

This is an excellent question, and one I’ve considered often in the last decade-plus of working with such folks.

First, it depends upon the stage of dementia: mild, moderate, or severe.

In mild dementia, it seems to be like being a functional alcoholic’s day, as far as cognition goes. You’re able to do what you need to do, but some little things get missed, such as your T-shirt is on backward, but you don’t notice, or you can’t find the sugar bowl, so you start taking apart cupboards and end up going without coffee and the kitchen is a mess. Later, you swear you did not do that. You have no memory of doing it, and the more another person argues that you did indeed make that mess, the angrier you get. You did not. He or she is lying.
