    Im sure he did have a sack of cash. I dont think he had any help form the mob though at that point after he went on the run. The mob beat him to death in prison so i dont think they were on great speaking terms anymore!

    Lets imagine this scenario!

    Well if you could find a job where you get paid cash under the table you may make it longer then a couple weeks. A good disguise as well would certainly help. Mobster Whitey Bulger was on the run for like 20 years before he finally got caught. I read one of his secrets was to never drive a...

    Lets imagine this scenario!

    I have heard the idea of hiding out as a homeless person in this scenario before. Seems like a good idea nobody checks homeless people's idea assuming your not breaking the law. I know law enforcement would track all your friends and family so you can pretty much never talk to any of them...

    What is the most nice or amazing thing that a person has done for you? Meanest or most cruel as well

    Yes the internet has made this stuff so much worse. 50 or 100 years ago lets say. You had one person who was the "village idiot" as they saying goes. They thought they were all alone and they themselves were unique. Not they get online and all the "village idiots" so to speak can meet up and...

    Thats a tough story. I can understand the other kids not helping you out with peer pressure) and the way kids are but the buis driver should have at least helped you out. Reminds me of the story of the murder of Kitty Genovese. Where it was reported that 38 people witnessed a murder and no...

    What is the most nice or amazing thing that a person has done for you? Meanest or most cruel as well

    I would agree it's a sad world if you have no one that cares about you. I think my friends argument was more general about people in society not giving a dam about other people not him personally. He said just look at history. Last 100 to 120 years all the deaths due to evil. From WW1 to...

    What do you want done with your body when you die? Be buried, burnt to ash ect?

    Another option I would like would be to cyronically frozen and infused with chemicals that will prevent crystallization of my cells, with the hope of restoration in the future. I have felt this way since the early 2000s. I would rather die, holding on to small hope that there is a chance to come...

    What do you want done with your body when you die? Be buried, burnt to ash ect?

    I asked this question. I dont dwell on death and I am not looking forward to dying. I try to be happy as much as possible. But that dosent mean you can plan or discuss serious issues. The subject of death came up in a conversation and I was simply asking what others thoughts were because I...

    What makes people believe absurd conspiracy theories?

    What makes people believe absurd conspiracy theories? Are they stupid or just naïve? Mentally ill? Or are people just easily manipulated and controlled by others? For example QAnon is a disproven and discredited far-right conspiracy theory alleging that a cabal of Satan-worshipping...

    What do you want done with your body when you die? Be buried, burnt to ash ect?

    Tree-pod burial methods looks interesting. Never knew of that option. I like the idea of my body giving nutrients to another living thing.

    What's the best bit of advice you've ever received?

    Futures are very high risk. You are basically playing in a casino playing the futures market. How have you done at it so far? Hopefully you are only investing in the futures with money you can afford to lose. Wish you luck
