Listen: Tim Allen, Cocaine, Timothy discussed on Bad Science
"So galaxy questions they're all Tim Allen related so in some way, or another an and either of you can answer this is not, you know, science based as many of our games are this is just a I don't know. I just thought it I hadn't seen Tim Allen in a long time. I guess and so watching him I thought like, oh, I'm going to do some digging here. Okay. So Tim Allen went to jail in nineteen seventy eight. Why did he go to jail? What was his crime? I know this. Got cocaine trafficking. That is correct. How Tim Allen had a almost a pound and a half of cocaine on him, and he was supposed to have a life sentence. And then it got reduced to like three to seven. He actually got out in two years and four months because he started giving people up you started working with the police, and he gave up twenty one people who were involved. Ally. People must want to kill him. And those are people that have seen his shows. Not to mention like, how do you know? So many people involved like if you put yourself in the shoes of a drug dealer like what's the team? Seven twenty one. Yeah. That's an impressive squad. It's a humid squad. Did he go on the road in the nineties in front of just open audiences and not worry that one of them new around or something? Yeah. I don't. I mean, he had a mustache in the mugshot and then never did again. So maybe he thought. It's part of your trivia did have a different name. He had his actual name is not Tim Allen. Oh, ten dick. Or or is his last name is dick, right? Yeah. It's like Timothy maybe it's Timothy again. Maybe if he was Tim to me dick in the drug trade Tim Allen on in a comedy club. No one would know. All right. Maybe good move. Tim allen. He made it, you know. Okay. So at the time at the high time of home improvement. How much was Tim Allen making per episode? My guess is at least a million episode. Okay here. I'm two million. Maybe lords got this one. It's a mill point two five one point two five mil nineteen ninety-five money. Right. So it's fair. It's probably honestly, maybe you were closer acting like today money dollars. And then he they did eight seasons. And they wanted him to do a ninth and they offered him like fifty million dollars. And he said, no. So I thought that was also he wanted to get back into cocaine. Missed it. Miss the thrill back to your rates. Okay. This is Tim Allen, quote that I want you guys to fill in my mom said the only reason men are alive is for blink. I here's the thing. I want to even get into his brain right week. And they don't want to know what his momma said. And it's a lie. Anyway, he didn't talk to him because he was an awful child. I hope that's the. If all of that, my mom said, the only reason men are alive is for lawn care and vehicle maintenance.."
