So? He's a phenomenal character actor and has a great range. He's brought to life some of the most iconic characters to ever grace the screen.

He maybe has a substance abuse problem. So do millions of other people.

That doesn't mean he's an wife beater. Or any other kind of human beater. It just means he maybe abuses his own damn body with substances.

I fell off the wagon and abused my own damn body with substances today, bad on me. But here we are. I crawled into bed and went on the internet. I didn't hit anybody. Assuming that he did is just absurd.

I still recall the first time I got my brother to watch this movie. Which was just shortly after he decided to flunk out of seminary school after a year. He asks me, "is this movie about drugs?" To which I responded with, "well, maybe a little bit."

Cue opening scene lol. It was fun introducing him to certain movies that he had missed out on. Some people take turns in their life and he certainly did. I doubt anyone would recognize him, that knew him prior to those very pivotal years when he learned that the religion he grew up with, was not the one that awaited him in the real world.

That movie was awful. The book wasn't great either. But the adaptation managed to fark up the good elements from the book and turn out a steaming pile. I got around reading the book last summer, alternating each day by also reading 'The Sun Also Rises'. It was a good reading combo for the pool. Then i decided to watch the movie with an open mind, even though i knew the critics had savaged it. Well, critics did not go far enough in their one star reviews.

There's a hodgepodge of approaches depending on who you are buying from, what you are buying, and how well you know each other. I've never done dead drops, although I've been asked to pay one guy and take a drive around the block with another who leaves a package on the glove compartment to take as he drops me back near my place. Best deal was when I had enough of a reputation as a stand up guy that I could get stuff on credit all weekend and settle with a check on Monday. It saved me the trouble of walking around with cash, kept both parties from looking extra sketchy my making the hand-off one way only since no cash had to go back during delivery, and it was kinda badass.

Which is why this story means nothing to me. So what if he texted for drugs?


FTFA: ' The messages were sent in early 2015, shortly before an alleged incident in Australia between Depp and Heard that she claims was "a three-day ordeal of physical assaults". '

Perhaps they plan to contend that un-prescribed and un-monitored drug use contributed to a mental state that encouraged violence against his spouse, thus supporting their claim that the alleged violence did occur.
