My Thoughts: Talk about Dan’s military past. Talk about stem cells. Some MMA talk. Talk about the bet where Dan rode a bike from LA to Vegas. Lots of poker talk. Dan skirts around answering questions about how much money he has and where it came from. Joe and Dan complain about being rich. Psychedelic talk.
