notseamus  ·  3113 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What is it like to be exposed to new technology after a 20+ year prison sentence

this is his site, but it gives no indication of what he was in for: http://michaelsantos.com/about/

But 25 years must have meant something serious. He looks like he's been busy since he got out anyway.

eta: nvm, it was non violent drug charges:

A close friend of mine, whom I will call Alex, was involved in the distribution of small amounts of cocaine. Because of my position in my family's firm, I had access to large sums of money. I chose to use some of that money--without my parent's knowledge-to join my friend Alex's scheme by financing a large cocaine purchase. We purchased three kilograms of cocaine for the purposes of reselling them to realize a profit. The transaction lasted about twelve hours, and after replacing the money I had inappropriately taken from my family's firm, Alex and I split a profit of $4O,OOO.

Burgers, pizza, anything trashy and simple and satiating like that.

I just got to the rabbit. How does a ball even move like that? Tell me that.

Surprisingly fascinating.

Very well written too.

I had shrimp and gnocchi for dinner today. Delicious. I love gnocchi, but every attempt to make it myself has been shit.

I got to level 4 in that Winnie the Pooh baseball game in the interim. http://disney.kids.yahoo.co.jp/game/pooh.html

Extremely frustrating though.

no, I was just really bummed by it when I read the summary earlier on the Guardian.

I know it's important to know and it's major news, but it just really bums me out and really gets to me.

My mother was telling me that we used to have a vegetable truck that would deliver vegetables to our estate. The owner one day said he had no mushrooms, only old ones, and told him that they were fine and were perfect for mushroom soup or sauce. He had just been throwing the old ones away the whole time. I think if people had better knowledge of how to use what they have and the point where something isn't edible anymore (rather than the really safe supermarket suggested dates), we could save so much.

I actually can't read more than the summary of this, it makes me really furious.
