    3. Rufus pimps 3 hoes. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each hoe turn to support Rufus's $800 per day crack habit?

    Only if city dwellers are considered a separate race.

    I think sometimes maybe they are. I saw names in that post common to a few different cultures.


    Don't you have an SDS meeting to attend?

    WPT, do the above math problems have the "tribute" that is to be paid the boys from Cicero figured in it? Because if Willie steals a BMW for $200, he is going to have to give "Joey the Clown" or "Joe Batters" successor a $50 tribute.

    Anyway that is the way it used to be in the Windy City.

    I think "the Boys from Cicero" even got upset and got out of Dodge, the last time I was in Cicero it was a big ghetto and nothing like it used to be when the Gambino's lived there ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
