Default Breaking news..

You could think its a joke, but sadly it is not.

No, it was not the secret ingredient in Oxy Clean!

I had met Billy Mays when I auditioned for his show, Pitchmen.
He was a very personable guy, and not much different than how he was 'on camera'.

Sad how drugs take the lives of so many, diverse people, across all cultures and races.

Dude, seriously, ya gotta get off that stuff...
Its the superhighway to diabetes. Just ask my brother, a SDG&E High Voltage Electrician / Lineman. Those guys live on that stuff, and after about a year on the job with an addicted crew, he started having all the problem Adult Onset Diabetes brings.

Once he kicked the monster habit, the 5 hour energy habit, the NITRO habit and others... his weight dropped, he dropped a bunch of perscription meds, and is doing real good.

I read that in the paper earlier today. Is that why he was so wound up?

I was afraid of that. But carbonated soft drinks aren't my "DRUG" of choice either

I gave up Diet Pepsi for a while. Several months. Didn't sleep better, loose weight or anything else. Back on it again. 2 a day is all I allow myself. A few beers a week. All good in moderation.

I have tried Red Bull when I knew I had a long night ahead of me. Not sure I felt any more awake or energetic. I think it was more mental thinking I took something.

I don't drink Monsters all day but daily is getting out of moderation , I guess. The most potent energy drink I've found is Red Line Extreme.

I like my sodas, so I will take quiet umbrage to comparing caffeine with cocaine. I don't do the energy drinks though. just good ol' fashion Pepsi or Mountain Dew.

Rant and rave all you want about the government picking and choosing which drugs to schedule, but Cocaine is not caffeine. Not by a long shot.

That's the 1st step , Li-Po. LOL yeah comparing energy drinks and caffine to cocain is apples to oranges. But it's the only comparison I have. Back to Billys legacy.... Has anybody tried that new counter rotating 2 bladed circular saw. That is a neat idea.

My brother bought one of those saws. We used it on a fence project, and then to do a wall of aluminum siding. A saw that cuts 3/4 board stock, then 1/16th aluminum siding without a change of any kind with no kickback or burrs, it is pure joy to use.

No clue how long it will last, it seems as good as any crapsman, much better than chicago (china) elect tools type quality, but it did one full day of work without stress. It was fun, everyone got a turn cutting something. You just dont expect a saw to not have some torque in the handle, but this has ZERO negative feedback. Plunge cut into anything.
