    Yeah, and so is wrestling.

    The women are described as Asian, between 30 and 40 years old, under 5'5" and and between 110 and 135 lbs.
    Well that narrows it down.

    Not only did they rip you off, you don't even remember having the money in the first place. They are good.

    I got hypnotized when I watched the clip, started dancing naked in the front yard. When the cops arrived I flashed my ccw badge and sash that I had nearby. Cops said everything was cool and left.

    I have a "jacker" wallet; filled with COPIES of $100s, $50s and $20s; it's for the distraction and then the shooting.
