I make 16.50 an hour where i work I own 2 cars and a house and pay all my bills by my self. Now my newest car is 8 years old. both my car run great because I take care of them. I don't always have money to do fun things but I don't starve either. A lot of it comes down to budgeting your money and not buying things you don't need when you don't have the money for them.

Not really I could have drainage witch will cause me to cough and feel fine. With as much as the weather changes around where i live 60 one day down to 15 at night 2 days later usually leads to minor sinus problems. I have a friend who would be sick for days every time there was a big change in the weather.

I work outside year round with a week or two off when its really cold. (below 20 F). I hardly ever get sick. Yes I'll get head colds runny nose and maybe a light cough but who doesn't when the weather is changing. but as far a s the flu. almost never. I can only think of twice in the last 17 years and the firs time I still worked.

It has been at least 10 years since the last time i have taken acid. in the 4 or 5 years that i did take acid i took well over 100 hits. probably closer to 200 or 300 hits. then one day i just decided it wasn't fun anymore so i quit and don't even want to think about taking it ever again even if it was free. as far as flashbacks go when you say you had a mild trip from smoking weed i would consider that a flashback. the last time i dosed i took between 8 and 20 hits of liquid acid. not sure of the exact amount because it was what was stuck to the sides of the plastic bottle i got it in and i sucked on it for about a half hour and all i really remember is the walls melting and just general crazyness. but after that night for close to 2 months any time i smoked weed i would have major trips or what i honestly would consider a flash back. and to this day i still get mild tracers even when I'm completely sober.

MikeChino writes "Porsche has just unveiled its 911 GT3 R Hybrid, a 480 horsepower track vehicle ready to rock the 24-hour Nurburgring race this May. Porsche's latest supercar will use the same 911 production platform available to consumers today, with a few race-ready features including front-wheel hybrid drive and an innovative flywheel system that stores kinetic energy from braking and then uses it to provide a 160 horsepower burst of speed. The setup is sure to offer an advantage when powering out of turns and passing by other racers."
