I wonder what it feels like to walk on cocaine. -- I had to pull them together somehow. [Oct. 18th, 2008|07:23 pm]

Yes. In the late nineteenth century, William (Billy) Scholl left farm life in La Porte, Indiana, for life as a shoemaker in chicago. After noticing how much abuse the average foot takes, he decided to become a podiatrist and treat the problems he saw. Once established as a medical doctor, he created foot products such as the Foot Eazer, an arch support. Eventually he opened factories in the United States and Canada to manufacture the many products that bore his name.

And I was feeling old school today... so here's the cast of 21 Jumpstreet telling you not to to do drugs.


There's an 800 number too. Kudos to the first journaller who call sit and tells me what they say. I'm watching tv and playing games with Little Random and just can't bring myself to call 1-800-Cocaine. LOL

I wonder if Johnny Depp was listening to those when he was doing Absinthe in From Hell?

The absinthe available now, and what Johnny probably tried to get more into his role isn't dangerous at all. I have a bottle under my sink that a friend bought me when I was in London, and I smuggled it on board to bring home. lol. It's the wormwood stuff and people brewing it at home not knowing what they're doing that makes it dangerous.

It is weird though. You see shadows. I've seen people effected by it far worse then I ever was, but I imagine some of that was psychological in nature.

I love Dr. Scholl!

There used to be a Dr. Leaky in Covington, Kentucky. He was a Urologist. I thought that was hilarious!

Dr Scholl is my hero! I wouldn't make it through my shift if it wasn't for him.

You want to know what's funny? I know a Dr. Scholl! (No he is not a podiatrist.)

I once had a role playing character who was a shoemaker. He also had a medical degree, was a fashion designer, a linguist and a minor psychic with. He came from a family of knights but he felt the most important thing in the world was to make people happy by making the most comfortable shoes possible. If there is something wrong with your feet it throws your whole body out of wack. I never understood people who ended up deforming there feet in the name of fashion.
