Only the change has been named.
(e.g. "Donald Moore's change", "Guy who buys a lot of porn's change".)

Sorry, it was a stretch.

No, it was awesome. I'm not firing on all syllables lately.

This American Life had a segment on recently comparing the stress in the life of a soldier in Afghanistan with a dealer in downtown Philly. Lots of shootings. Constantly having to be on guard, etc.

Thought about what stress you might be living with, UT.

I kinda wish "retarded or high" was like a game show, where the audience could vote and then we'd see how many people got it right.

While I'll be sad to lose the interesting stories, I do hope you're able to get out of there soon, UT, before the place bruises your heart and soul for good.

"Constantly on guard" is exactly it peetz. And paranoid: every customer will run out with an item if you let them; everything brought in is probably broken; everyone is trying to get one over on you.

And everyone believes you are getting one over on them. Everyone is suspicious of you.
