Re: Going pro & moving to Vegas

Thanks for the update, bike. Definitely interested in hearing how year 2 goes for you. Rooting for as quick a comeback as possible for you. Scratch that possible Vegas to LA bike ride, it'll waste more of you away. Lol. I agree with Registered, get into weight training. It gives you a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment seeing the exercise poundages go up over time, not to mention, some muscle as well. Keep us updated frequently. Good luck.

Just because I met someone and talked with them a handful of times, in my opinion, does not qualify as somebody KNOWING you. You cant know somebody after meeting them for the first time 6 months ago with limited contact.
where on earth do you get "besties" from this:

How was anything I said remotely in the realm of "bullying"? He listed off a bunch of people he said he knows personally. I simply was giving my version of when somebody knows you personally. Disagreeing with someone and stating why you disagree with someone isnt bullying. You're telling me you'd vouch for someone you met in a poker room a couple of times or consider knowing that person personally? Let's get real here....


And please, I really dont think we want to get into a discussion of productivity and I certainly dont need you trying to bully ME into not posting on this thread.

Re: Going pro & moving to Vegas

Good luck in 2018. I enjoy reading the reports. I don't have an opinion on the theft other than that sucks. Could be a by product of being "homeless". The nomad lifestyle means no where to call "home". No set routines, no place to call "home". Not getting mail daily and a loss of personal identity. Get a room. A place to lay your head. A place to store your stuff. A place to read a book and make a meal. A comfort zone. You can be a minimalist and still have a roof. Good luck.

Re: Going pro & moving to Vegas

FWIW, Secret clearances mean about as much as an associates in the DOD contracting world.

Nothing. They are worth less than dick.

It's the TS/SCI clearance jobs that actually get you in the 6 figure range OCONUS.

A secret clearance getting you 6 figs CONUS?? Lol GTFO kid. Not without also having a bachelors in the field of work SPECIFICS to the contract.

This represents an inductive logical fallacy. The fact that others may hold you in high regard has no bearing on the objective evaluation of facts for this situation. For example, if you were on trial for theft and the prosecution presented video evidence of you stealing the item in question, the fact that "reputable people" testified to affirm your character wouldn't do much to exculpate your guilt.

As for the overall evaluation of your previous posts containing the depiction of events, there were many important points not addressed in your reply. I'll repost them here for reference:

There's plenty of speculation and opinion in this thread. But pocket_zeros seems to be focused on resolving the obvious factual discrepancies in the story as presented.

The fanboys and haters can carry on, but there are also a few of us here who would simply prefer that the true story surface.

So good luck to pocket_zeros.

I have no particular interest in discrediting the storyteller - it's the story itself which interests me. I'm actually surprised how little interest others have shown in the absence of extraordinary evidence for such extraordinary claims. 2+2 has a long and distinguished history to the contrary.

Why not? And it's not like this stuff is a ton of effort.

If Bikeking is lying, then pocket_zeroes is doing the community a service because this is the sort of story someone might spin before looking to be staked. I don't know if BK is lying, but enough red flags have been raised that I would do some homework before I enter into any sort of financial arrangement with him.

Re: Going pro & moving to Vegas

Remember the thread itself was started by bikeking, to expect people not wanting to know the answers of some questions is hilarious to me.

No one has started a different thread throwing bikeking under the bus, or spreading malicious rumors about him. These seem to be genuine questions to the OP of this thread.

perfectly reasonable
