    That is exactly what you read and unbelievable if considered it came out of human being's mouth... go figure. Maybe I should get shot by the CPD...than I could buy house. (sarcasm... I would never do this)

  • Fuarain CTA rider, walker, animal person

    Sounds as likely a path to success as intentionally getting hit by a CTA bus. If you're lucky, you might get a large amount of money (with 1/2 to 1/3 going to your lawyer), if you're unlucky, you get killed.
