    The "bottom line" in addiction is that the addict will make a decision to alter their behavior when they decide they've had enough of living in a sewer. It means "hitting bottom." Some do it...

    True enough.

    The ESPY Award to them, however, is an abomination when you measure a sex change operation against learning to play sports on two prostheses or so many of the other injuries that...

    Possibly the WORST Harlan Sanders impression EVER!!!

    Comes across as a real degenerate.

    A good hauler is going to be a marginal daily driver. That's just the nature of the beast. The two jobs are too dissimilar to ever have one vehicle capable of doing both jobs well.

    Most places I've been to charge $20-$30/night for full hookup. If all you need is electricity and water it's usually a few dollars less. I don't go to high dollar show venues so these numbers may...

    I express no opinion on the moral, ethical, or legal basis of the Court's ruling. I'm just curious about how this precedent can play out in other arenas.

    It's not illegal. Indeed it was legal in some places prior to the decision in question. Sort of like the choice to own a firearm. In Chicago there was no choice nor was there any in Kennesaw.
