    Oh heck no!! I'm a Samsung guy all the way. I bought one iPhone years ago and HATED it. I couldn't switch back to Samsung fast enough.

    ...now on to Ax's original question...
    I'm not sure if I'll catch flack for this or not, but here goes...

    I wish I had jumped on a job a few years back with a chef friend of mine. He left the grind of the restaurant industry to make marijuana edibles (legally in MA).
    So, he works for a dispensary here in MA and is making bank. He has stocks in the company and is killing it. Not to mention his job is EXTREMELY less stressful than restaurantville.
    I wish I jumped on that train when I could have. With $9.8 MILLION in sales the first month between just 2 locations (we now have 7 and counting) the market is obviously BOOMING!!

    Now, some of you may say "But, Craig, aren't you an addict?"
    I am, and an alcoholic. But I can say this with a 100% open, honest mind...I have never lied, cheated, stolen or manipulated for marijuana, nor did it ever change the person I am. I became a pro at lying, cheating, stealing and manipulation for drugs and alcohol, and I became a rotten shell of the person I am when drinking and using.

    I'm also a firm believer that medicinal marijuana can save lives. Picture a world where instead of seeing your Dr for back pain, knee surgery, etc... and walking out with a script for a narcotic...you walk out with a script for marijuana. It is much safer, and I can speak from experience here, nobody gets addicted to marijuana and jumps to heroin because it's cheaper. It happens EVERY DAY with people on narcotic pills FROM THE DR!!

    Anyway, medicinal and legal marijuana are booming, and within a few years will be legal in almost every state. I wish I got on that train sooner.

    I was intentionally late to the party with Breaking Bad. I knew it was a great show and that I would love it, but what I wouldn't love would be the year long wait between seasons.

    I started as the last season was ending, reasoning that it would be available on Netflix just as I was getting ready for it, and it was! It was nice to be able to enjoy the decent at my own leisurely pace.

    I wish I had done that with Game of Thrones! I started that in Season 1 and have had to deal with the annual frustration between season. I mean c'mon HBO, 10 episodes then a year wait for the next 10! My whole family is drooling now for those last 6 installments.

    get both! i have an work issued iPhone and a Samsung/Android personally. overall the Samsung and Android is superior but i still love beauty and the simplicity and ease of use of the iPhone. the thing i hate most about the iPhone is that all your icons are pretty much on a grid that blocks your background wallpaper. WTF is up w/ that?

    also i miss Windows phone.

    I don't quite think it will replace "knee surgery" but I do agree that it's a better option for many conditions & should be legal & an available option. And no way
    should all these people be locked up over petty violations, but of course the current system does make a lot of money for those running the private prisons, and they
    gotta fill them somehow... (-the whole mess needs to be fixed!)

    No, it certainly won't replace surgery, but it is a healthier pain relief alternative to opiates and narcotics for post surgery pain relief.
