  Drug problem.
I have not touched on the intellectual points yet, of which I actually scribbled some notes on subjects which I would like to discourse on.

The stupid question of the day was asked by some inmate that just came back from a piss test and wanted to know if he didn't get high, but just handled the stuff, would he get a positive on the piss test?

I have no idea who the idiot that asked the question is, but yes, we do apparently have a drug problem here at FCI. Go figure. I have been piss tested three times in the last six years under the nationwide BOP random drug testing plan.

One of life’s embarrassing times is when your bladder/kidney system decides not to function because some guy is peering over your shoulder to ensure that it is indeed your urine being deposited in the collection cup. Of all the times and places I have taken, or as George Carlin would say, given, a piss, why this is any different beats me, but then again, the mind can do some pretty strange things when it wants to prove it is boss!

Speaking of drug tests, one inmate recently failed his "random" drug test. It was questionabe how his allegedly one slip in several years was "caught" the next day by a test. He thinks he was ratted out by one of his fellow drug partakers.

The point is since everyone here claims this is one of the worst places for inmates telling on one another, why even get involved in something that might bring any heat on you? As Forest Gump would say, stupid is as stupid does.

Let me pause from my ranting and cover your letters. I think I will shortcut the "type, proof, retype" process and see if I can put the above into an instant post tomorrow, depending on fog, etc.

Well, now it is late and my hand is feeling like my ankles now, sore, so off to bed I go, plus I think my cellie is doing the old "I am ready to sleep thing and why are the lights still on?" thing.

So the rest of this will be completed tomorrow and be ready for mailing by 10:00 PM.
