Great story. I love hearing about people that have turned their lives around and doing great. Good luck to the both of them.

Thanks for sharing that! It just goes to show that people who fall on hard times can turn around no matter what. Very inspiring!

Distribution is far worse than simple possession and use. That's why sentences for distribution are longer than mere possession, rightly so.

My 2 cents, not that anyone asked: This isn't a guy who just fell on hard times. He wasn't an addict, fueled by chemical dependency. He capitalized on others' addictions purely to line his pockets. I recognize that he was probably pretty young and stupid when made these choices, that the State has taken its pound of flesh and that he's all square on his debt to society, and I'm also honestly glad that he has done so well since his release. It's good to have loyal friends, and props to AK for giving him the chance. But I have a hard time seeing this particular felon-makes-good story as all that inspirational.

While I agree that its not an inspirational story in the sense that its an experience everyone should go through to become a better person (obviously), I will say that people will do rash things and make bad decisions when times are tough - esp. when one is in bad bad debt.

Still - good to see he mans up to his past, paid his debt to society, and is back on the bag!

Yeah, well at least someone isn't pushing drugs to your kids while they're locked up - But then you see the Government as a drug pusher, don't you?You said it in the other thread. All those nasty drugs to combat high blood pressure and arthritis, asthma and cancer.

Are you suggesting that they put drug dealers at the college doorstep and save themselves $20,000?

LoL, ya, I'd feel much better about our GVMT if all the streets were paved, stamps cost 20 cents, and I had free health care as long as the trade off was serial killers, rapists, and child molestors were in college with our girlfriends, brothers, and sisters.

One the otherside, if that were true, my dad woulda told me at 18 to steal cars and park them at the police station or hold up a donut shop so he coulda bought that vacation home 20 years ago.

Yeah - think of the savings! And not only that, the US could regain some international respect and those 50 million a year morons who lent money to unemployed people who wanted to buy houses without a deposit wouldn't need that 750 billion or whatever it is they're trying to negotiate with your government. Just release all those good citizens from prison and multiply the number by 80 thousand and there you have it! Simple!! A substantial fiscal bottom line.

I mean, the idea that you could actually MAKE money by doing away with the concept of punishment is a piece of beauty. Gangagolfer for president. He could team up with that Alaskan woman and their combined wisdom would do wonders for your economy and moral standing.

ditto, for our correctional institutions to be a real money saver should be about rehabilitation and healing and not a revolving door for felons. if we could turn people's lives around, this is the solution

lock up a drug pusher and there will be another one to take the place

give a community hope and purpose and the drug pushers will go out of business
But then you see the Government as a drug pusher, don't you?You said it in the other thread. All those nasty drugs to combat high blood pressure and arthritis, asthma and cancer.

how about diet, exercise and nutrition so these diseases aren't epidemic or would that put the drug companies out of business?

Are you suggesting that they put drug dealers at the college doorstep and save themselves $20,000?

drug dealing is a career of hopelessness, give people hope and a vision and people and society will flourish

Drug pushers have chosen their career and without users there are no pushers. We make choices. Their choice is to try to make money without working. They are not motivated by "hope and vision", unfortunately. They hope to make a quick buck and cannot see nor do they care about the damage they cause. These diseases are not all caused by poor diet and lack of exercise. Try legislating exercise and diet in your country and see what happens. Again, choice. Ironically, legalising illicit drugs is the only way to put drug pushers out of business. Without the (albeit greedy) drug companies, I, along with many people on this site would be dead or unable to play golf. How do you "give people hope and purpose"? There are millions of Americans who have unlimited hope and great purpose. They are not waiting for someone to give them anything. The fact that a drug pusher will be replaced by another is no reason not to lock them up. And I am not "inspired" by the tale of a reformed drug dealer. I am, though, willing to accept the fact that he has reformed and turned his life around. I respect and admire that. Were he not incarcerated, where would he be now?

Dang, what are they eating lobster everynight in NY. As of 2004 the cost of incarcerating a Californian for 1 year was 31,000.

ny is closer to 30,000 as well. 100,000 i quoted in error.

still, the focus within the dept. of corrections i feel should be on rehabilitation and healing and not on punishment

Do you think it isn't Or, rather, do you think they'd say it isn't?

I wonder if AK uses the high-number ProV1 and if his caddy sometimes gets confused if AK asks for an 8 ball...

    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
    • Haha, I've done that while walking.  The thing that made it embarrassing for me is I did it 2 or 3 times in the same round before I finally started catching myself.
    • I think there's a large old thread exactly like this already actually, just need to dig it up. Anyway, weirdest I've encountered was people rolling a cart.  I've also hit 2 geese myself (both with drives).
    • A few weeks ago I stumbled across something that seems to have helped me a great deal.  Towards the end of a round I was fatigued and playing kinda sloppy and when addressing a ball my left leg popped into a locked straight position and I said screw it and swung away.  I ended up smoking the ball crisp and straight.  I tried it off and on several times during my next round and had similar great results.  Now I've been doing it all the time and it seems to be a genuinely good thing. I did a internet search of locked legs when I got home from playing today and all the links seemed to refer to locking the back leg and implied it was generally a bad thing.  There didn't seem to be any mention of locking the front leg.  This makes me think I might be teaching myself something unnatural and bad.  I pretty sure I'm maintaining the locked leg (back leg stays loose) all the way through the swing but I'd need to make a video to know for sure.  Anyway, my question is... does anyone else do this?  If not then does it sound like something that would be considered bad golf posture?
