Yeah I've been keeping my keys with me at all times after the 2nd break in. I actually just bought this 2 way Sim bug that I'm going to plant in my car. If it hears a noise it will call your phone and let you hear what's going on. Just gotta get a GSM prepaid Sim and I'm good to go. Now I just gotta bait him with a something.

He suffers a chronic illness known as crohn's disease. It affects your intestines and you have to stick to a very diligent diet or else you will be in pain. Honestly, my family and I had no idea about it because he never gave any indication that he was in pain, but I guess the pain can get very bad. So he smokes weed to alleviate some of the symptoms. Also he was adopted, both his parents were in drug rehab and my dad decided to take him when he was born. I honestly think that there is a genetic predisposition to drug-dependency. I know he's tried other drugs like shrooms, acid, cocaine, prescription drugs; and I'm sure much more.

It's really hurting my whole family, especially my dad. I just don't know what to do anymore. He lives on his own and I have a sneaking suspicion is stealing from me. I live at home with my dad as I commute to school and two times my car has been broken into. The kicker is that I have keyless entry and an alarm system. There was no sign of forced entry, nothing broken. The only way someone would have been able to get in is with the keys and I usually leave them downstairs while I sleep. My brother also has a key to the house so it's possible he could have went into the house and took my keys, took stuff out of my car, then put the keys back. It kills me to think it, but it's honestly the only explination I can think of.

What was stolen was my 300 dollar radar detector, $300 gps, beats headphones, bunch of change, and a baton I kept in the door. I don't know how to confront him about it and I really don't want to because I'd feel awful if it weren't true. I have no idea what to do about it. I honestly don't trust him anymore, though, and it really bothers me that I feel this way. I don't want to sound like a selfish, materialistic ass, but it bothers me that my car got stolen the way it did.

At least if someone smashed in the windows or something I'd know how, but not knowing how the person got in is really the thing that bothers me the most. Doesn't make me feel safe.
I bet at this point you're wishing you had **** your pants and your girlfriend left you. But seriously, that sucks, and I get what you mean about not feeling safe.

My gripe? I'd like to be able to eat solid food again. Something's got my stomach all messed up, spent half the night sitting on the toilet, the other half curled up in pain. Getting better, but I would much rather eat leftover pizza than soup for dinner.

This is odd but I recently purchased a wireless camera with Mic and infrared for about 100 bucks, it could be hooked up to a VCR and you can record everything
I'm not sure if it's in your budget but it's a good option

Drug addiction is almost impossible to understand from a rational viewpoint. It is something that can be treated though. My nieces husband has Crohns and it is horrible.
If he is genetically predisposed to addiction and has a painful chronic condition then becoming dependent on opiates is very likely and the horror of withdrawal could most certainly drive him to do such a thing. He needs help

Hmmm... Might be a little out of my
Budget. The Sim bug only cost 18 dollars and I think should be sufficient.

I'm really pissed off at all the developers who spend loads of their personal time crafting beautiful roms for the community and asking for a simple "thanks" in return. Seriously, I have to thank you for all the countless hours you've spent slaving over code? What a load of bull****!!



In case you couldn't tell this is extreme sarcasm

I guess I could be considered on of them, although I don't bitch about it constantly. I bought the Rezound for the hardware it has inside of it, not because of the the Sense UI. You can always change the launcher of your phone, but you can't change the hardware of your phone. I actually love the look of Sense, it's the dock (rosie?) I abhor. I've always had a dock with a clear background and at least four apps that I use multiple times a day. Previous to ICS the dock was completely useless since you only had the phone in there and one more app of your choosing. ICS was a little better by giving you space for four apps and a frosted background compared to the ugly black half-moon dock. I just want an AOSP rom so I don't have to deal with all of the wasted space that comes with not using Sense. (Almost) every phone out there has a custom interface/launcher, so if you want a vanilla Android launcher are you stuck with buying just a Nexus device, even though it has ****ty hardware? Your line of thinking is comparable to not buying a house because you don't like the wallpaper in it.

He's had countless opportunities of help. That's the worst part. He's been to drug rehabilitation programs two different times before he turned 18. My father, mother(who are now separated), sister and I have all helped him numerous times in our own ways. I just don't think he wants to change. I honestly just don't think he cares about himself and how he lives. It's just a shame. Can't help someone that doesn't want to help themselves.
