Robert Downey Jr. was incarcerated on two separate drug charges. He broke and in and out of prison because of his self-destructive addiction to booze and never-ending quantities of weapons-grade drugs. He was reduced at one point to earning eight cents an hour scrubbing pizza pans in the kitchen of the LA County Jail. There were several nights where, claiming to be targeted by other inmates, he woke up in a puddle of his own blood.

He was already on parole after being arrested for racing his car drunk along Sunset Boulevard while in possession of a stash of drugs and an unloaded .357 magnum revolver. On another occasion, he was arrested whilst naked and hallucinating at the wheel of his Porsche.

At his darkest hour, he was found in the fetal position in a rat-infested alley behind a dingy LA hotel. During one of a litany of court appearances on drugs charges, he told a judge: ‘Taking drugs to me is like having a shotgun in my mouth with my finger on the trigger, and I like the taste of the gun metal.’

Now the former laughing stock of Hollywood is one of the biggest stars of our generation, a star you pay huge bucks to get in and elevate a film.

If a person can come back from that, if a person can get out of an addiction to drugs of that outrageous caliber, and do as well as he did in spite of everything that had happened during that –– as he called it –– twenty year coma, then chances are you can pull through what you’re having to struggle to get through right now and come out the other end.

that real enough for you, bitch?

During his childhood Mark Ruffalo suffered from ADD and dyslexia. In 2001 Ruffalo suffered a brain tumor which required surgery to remove. The surgery  paralyzed the left side of his face, from which he would eventually recover, and he is permanently deaf in his left ear. His brother was murdered in 2008.

Diocletian was a dipshit

When you think about it Diocletian and his reforms really weren’t all that great or smart for the Roman Empire. The empire had just come out of the Crises of the Third Century, a choatic and destructive period where almost every Roman general or politician of some importance was declaring himself emperor and vying for power. The civil wars that resulted almost destroyed the empire.

So with this in mind, not to mention having knowledge of Roman history going back to the days of republic, Diocletian creates a system in which four emperors would co-rule over the empire. And like, they would get along while ruling their separate realms and live together in harmony and all would be cool and froody again and they wouldn’t do anything like fight or backstab each other and try to take all the power for themselves while he was busy growing his cabbages.

Whiskey and beans? How does that work?

You add it to the sauce in which you bake your beans. Depends upon the whiskey, can make the beans sweeter or smokier depending on what kind.
