I always trust you Crame.
Bent- sounds good man, because any job for a year would surely get you to another country. I know for sure that you wouldn't blow it on drugs and food and other stupid bullshit. Mugging people by night? Good luck not getting caught in some countries, and good luck not getting the shit beat out of you in the rest. And you said "legit?" Yeah, sounds pretty legit man. Too legit even.
The main reason something like this is appealing is the idea of "Sway" like in 25th Hour, mentioned by Imperial. Everyone thinks it's cool, and it's in every organized crime movie ever made, just we didn't know the name. It's beautiful.
