Had they been white walnut trees it'd have been 20 yrs minimum.

Puckmarin: Have you ever lived around a black walnut tree?  I don't blame him for cutting them down.  Horrible, dirty, smelly trees.


The one I had was clean and articulate.

now sure which one of you are racist, or are you both....


I wasn't actually going for a racist joke there.  Black walnut trees actually are horrible.

Reading it again, what I said is funny as hell.

I'd probably pay $56,000 to get an extra 15 months.  Is there some way to get that deal without all the arboreal labor?

They can keep the prison, I'm not really an administrator type.

cherryl taggart: Are you talking about a sweet gum tree? Those vile little spike balls that sprout when you look at them? My stupid neighbors think they have some sort of exotic maple, because the leaves look somewhat like a maple. I want to go over there and pour rock salt all over that yard. I spend hours pulling up those horrid little saplings from everywhere. And no barefoot walks in the soft backyard, because they hide in the grass we keep at 2.5 inches.


No it was a chestnut tree cause my mom would gather them up,carefully open them and there would be chestnuts in the middle. Once my aunts were throwing them at each out and one got stuck in my aunts ass. Imagine being a 30 year old woman asking your mom to pull those spikes out your ass.

serial_crusher: How do you just "get" 15 months?


Maybe there is no literal way to get or gain 15 months, but non-autistic people easily understand the term.

How do you just "get" 15 months?  I mean, it's not like you can just find a bag of time laying around.
The prison, sure.  And that seems like an appropriate punishment, making him deal with all the logistics that running a business like that incurs, but even if you could give the man time, why would you?  Criminals deserve to have time taken away, not given to them.
