“If they don’t have that extreme addict personality, you can never understand how a guy can blow $300 or $400 million dollars.  If I have to live at the top of the world, I also have to live at the bottom of the ocean.  I don’t know how to live in the middle of life.”

“This is a weird feeling in my life I have to deal with, not being a violent man anymore when my whole life’s reputation was built on being extremely violent.  I just don’t know how to deal with that right now.  I don’t even go to strip clubs no more.  I don’t know who I am sometimes, but I am not the guy I used to be.  I’m not an angel or anything.  I’m still lascivious, periodically.  I’m just looking for some balance in my life.”

Well damn.  If I approached typing with a fraction of Tyson’s tenacity, I’d be a billionaire by now.  So from here on out, I’m officially snapping necks and cashing checks.  With words.
