I know a guy named David Beck. He weighs in at near four bills, sweats profusely, even while just sitting, and eats the most unhealthy diet you could possibly imagine. He bought one of those portable defibrillators which he carries with him at all times "just in case." He's also ridiculously rich. He once bought a hover craft. When he took it for it's maiden voyage he went out on a fast-moving river and promptly sank it, laughed it off, and bought another one, which he used on a lake. One time, with no prior sailing experience, he bought a 26-foot sailboat and decided he was going sail to Catalina Island. When I suggested that that may not be a great idea, he assured me that it would be okay because he "had a book about sailing." He ended up being towed in by the Coast Guard. He had a dog named Birdie and when it died he had it cremated. He carried the cremains around with him until someone stole them from his house. I don't know if we're talking about the same David Beck, but last I heard he had retired to a small town in Northern California and bought a storage company.

I wasn't making an attempt at humor. Just telling stories about David Beck, at least the David Beck that I know. He also owns an arsenal of assault rifles that is hard to believe. At some point in the mid-1990s he was convinced that the government was going to outlaw a bunch of classes of guns, so he started snatching them up. At one point he had a couple hundred fire arms ranging from small handguns to .50 cals. He was involved in a road-rage incident once where both he and the other guy pulled semi-automatic guns out and pointed them at eachother before realizing that it was basically mutually-assured destruction and going about their separate ways. He also threatened a neighbor who had young kids by saying he was going to rent a spare room in his house to a convicted sex offender and once poisoned food in a cabin he owned because he thought his neighbors were breaking in and taking food while he was gone. He's pretty much a despicable human being.
