    I was one of those drinkers. One can of beer =9 hours to burn off metabolizing time. Two shots of schnapps about the same for safety margin. I had a lawman do a breath inside the bar to see where I was at at the 9th hour as a experiment. it came out really small. Hardly worth looking at. But flat zeros would be much better.

    We used to keep a game Or in this case a device for tube tests by breathing.

    It totally backfired on us. They woudl stuff quarters into it and do anything they can to breach the 0.32 record. The problem with that record is a lethal concentration more or less. Expressed in LCt50 form.

    Actually there are more than a few wealthy people in the US who are financing and building and running their own rescue operations involving anti-sex trafficing and groups under religious persecution or threat, across the globe. In fact, these private operations are probably doing more to help more people than the US government collective. They are mainly using former special ops military and gathering human intelligence in foreign lands, and are operating without any support from any government and in fact have to work hard to avoid crossing paths with any government clandestine operations [to other ends] that may be going on.

    Only about 6 other nations have any sort of government ran operation to help find and rescue sex slaves. Some of the things that are still going on both here in the US and abroad are truly sickening.

    It’s not really a good idea for anybody to drink.

    Thank you kindly.

    I feel that People are free to do or go where they need to at that moment. If they want out, well sometimes they have to fight for it.

    I recall in Krav it's just me against a human wall of 20 who says I will not leave this spot. I dropped the first one and laid into the second really fast and almost got clear but trainer stopped the fight. Apparently we were not to fight but sit there and bleat without any effect or improvement to the current situation of imprisonment. The true point was to load up your cardio vacular system to the max. It desnot take much for the comn A elderly lady was participating in the same exercise vs a human wall. They all laughed while apologizing, they could not understand that she is there to fight. 80 something years old, a few medical challenges.

    She was the only one to escape. She stuck a pencil in a girl three persons down and while all the young men fall over themselves to tend to pretty out she went on hands and knees. And because three were so absorbed in winning affection etc they totally left themselves to open an Ultimately I could not do it. I did not have enough ejection factor in the aorta. Which led to a positive medical scans and being worked on by the surgeon at some point in the future. Once that valve is either fixed or replaced, it's going to resolve it nicely. Make me 14 again dealing with horses and harnessing.

    I'll be first to say the same myself. It's incredibly stupid.

    You have to be assured of a huge reset, that truck to be parked and cold during your two days off in a hotel and even then no more than one or two completely enjoyed drink.

    I had one incident decades ago, in which you could not make this up and frankly I should have been busted and processed etc (Served me right) Fortunately under family pressure (Best kind) I changed the then poisonous lifestyle and removed certain persons from life which seriously cleared up problems that led to that kind of activity at all.

    You ever notice that when these articles are published, almost nobody is ever charged with human trafficking? That's because in reality, it almost never happens in the US. A couple of my closest friends are in law enforcement, and they have confirmed to me that claiming there is human trafficking is a way to increase budgets, and it works like a charm. Even in the article you posted a link to, they tout that there were over 300 arrests, and one person "might" be charged with human trafficking.

    Every year there are nation-wide sweeps by law enforcement busting pimps and prostitutes. Out of thousands of arrests across the country, they usually come up with less than a dozen women doing it against their will and/or under aged. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, it's just being hyped up to keep the money flowing in.

    This is a BING SEARCH I just done. I see many arrests in the US in just 2018. It's actually easier to post the search then the hits.
