Hey Doug,
Sarcasm aside, not everyone in the world uses the same names. Maybe they’re called “want ads” where you live but since the ads usually are in the Wanted column and often incorporate the word “Wanted”, I think you’ll understand why that’s not always the case.

I watched a show called master mind on the guy in #6. It was quite interesting, and all well documented. He in fact did do all that is discussed in the add, and didn’t get busted till 10 years after the fact. The Dea really hated him and eventually caught him. Though by the time they did he had already wrecked his life with coke. Now having served his time like the add says he is an up standing citizen.

Thanks for the follow-up information, Duderoo. The guy should write down his life story and publish the memoirs.

Some very good ones there, especially the former marijuana smuggler. Also, what’s up with Doug? It is definitely ‘wanted ads’ not ‘want ads’, stupid Americans.

You know how you tell yourself you are studying because you have your certification books opened in front of you? But you are really clicking on Stumble Upon to find interesting posts to read?

Yeah well, I came across yours and had to write to tell you I enjoyed it very much. I gave it the thumbs up, so more people can come across it and enjoy it also.
