    Nope, but I can certainly comment on my observations of the most vocal members.

    Do you know where to find a list of which states have this option?

    Yeah really, why bother with a work forum, you know all us SCI losers are just a bunch of lazy ass good for nothings. I mean just look at us, just casually sitting there motionless, we're a bunch of real go-getters, eh? I know myself I'd prefer to be getting my $350 a month off of Social Security and buying dog food with my foodstamps, but I am just too lazy and shiftless to bother quitting my job, oh well.

    +1 on the werk forum. I'm sure I can suggest ways to dodge responsibility and maximizing the lack of work output, I'm real good at that. Uh oh, I think the boss is coming...time to grab the clipboard and look serious, makes me look real busy!

    Great idea!

    I'd like to know the system and how to work it. I've been working and like cass I'm getting tired. I went p/t and now $ is a rarity.

    Go ahead. We are all waiting anxiosly for your wisdom.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    This site has a list but it really needs to be updated as more states in the pending colum have passed a buy-in like Idaho.

    You can also learn more about a buy-in at

    A work/education forum is a great idea (and maybe the Tiger also could get a decent job then).

    Those who are most vocal don't necessarily represent the majority.

    As for an education/work forum, I'm all for. Returning to work or school isn't as simple as finding a job or just picking class schedules. There are myriad factors to be considered.

    Pride goeth before a fall. I hope you aren't as insufferably SMUG as you seem to be in this thread. Ick.

    You seem to imply that the majority of us are welfare-mentality. I guess we were all hoping for SCI so we could collect that big paycheck (and that primo government health insurance) and never have to work for a living.

    You were blessed in family resources and injury level.

    I'd love to be happy for you. But. You. Seem. So. SMUG.

    I'm sorry to go off topic. This thread is important.

    P.S. I'd like links to the lazy vocal majority, please.
