    Kinda hard to accomplish if you start your week Friday 11pm.... Not enough hours left in the week

    Try 6.5 + 14 + 8

    Lol, if I havent got the attention span to simply crossreference Thai massages, Tacos, and suspected Pill Mills near motels in Garden Grove... I'd say that warrants an actual LEGITIMATE prescription

    Besides, back when I was a kid, my doctors agreed and i HAD one...until my crusading mom read some rather biased pamphlet and took it upon herself to repeatedly threaten to sue any doctor that still thought so...

    and lo and behold, the lot of them suddenly developed an acute interest in second opinions - from other doctors that refused to make eye contact and said odd things about second opinions...

    Plus i got a medical history full of some chronically misdiagnosed non-existent hypertension (actually hypotension) ... lazy medical assistants at any and all appointments been trying to cut off all circulation with the torture device known as a "Size M cuff" for decades now, and are far too stubborn to just let the guy with an XL arm get measured with a suitable XL cuff ...stir in traumatic childhood memory of waking up in a hospital tied to an automatic one of those, also 2 sizes too small & set on a 30 second loop....basically I got a long medical history of blood pressure measurements after migraine-inducing arguments of "use the right goddam cuff" and dredging up painful memories...

    File looks something like:
    105/72 (proper cuff)
    165/110 (argued 15 minutes no dice)
    162/105 (10 minutes no bueno)
    130/90 (15 minutes, then found proper cuff)
    135/90 (proper cuff, kept getting 105/72, mumbling but you have hypertension impossible and remeasuring until he pissed me off so much it went up)
    110/80 (proper cuff, but lots of redbull)

    New narrative: "so yeah we'r not sure but anyway we cant risk treating you with your high blood pressure..."



    .....
    Basically modern medicine says I "had" adhd until my momma threatened some people and suddenly I was miraculously "cured".

    And any attempts to actually have a serious convo with a doc since inevitably ran aground somewhere in the Bay of St00pid that separates Obamacare victims from medical services...

    You don't have to be in LAX to cherry pick. City works just fine too.
    Only if you know your honey hole well enough.

    Just a little cherry pick for me today. Needed to get to century city so I snagged me this one. Weho close enough.

    She said her other driver never picked up from lax before. He was on the lower level. 40 minutes before she cancelled and requested again. Seriously, who waits 40 minutes for a driver?

    I don't understand what's so difficult about it. I wasn't there more than 10 minutes and uber sent me on my way again with a nice 2.3x.

    I pass up so many surge runs at LAX. It depends on when the drivers or going online.

    Sometimes, I'll let 1.9x ping out as I'm waiting for 2.5x, and 2.3x pool pings.

    The only ones I let ping out are the ones from Century. Let one ping and cancel one hoping I get a terminal on the third. I am top tier. When I login, it means I get the next ping. homie don't play no games at lax. I don't have time to play with the antz. I've got tingz to do
