Hey, Nails here. First, just a few things I got going:
June 2016 I wrote my New York Times best selling memoir: House of Nails: A Memoir of Life on the Edge. Hardcover is already available, paperback will be released June 2017. Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/House-Nails-Memoir-Life-Edge/dp/0062407368
I got a reality TV show in the works "House of Nails", stay tuned for more info on that and take a look at the sneak peak here: https://twitter.com/LennyDykstra/status/838954151165870081
I'm featured on and regularly visit the Stern Show to discuss my conquests and exploits. Be sure to tune in, and if you haven't already, you can listen in on some of my features and visits below:
I will answer as much as I can over the next couple of hours (until ~2 PM EST), and I might follow up on some other questions past that time too. Be patient, I'm new to this shit...
I'm going to answer any REAL questions you can throw at me. I'm NOT going to answer stupid spammy troll shit (you guys know who you are)

Twitter posts regarding AMA:
1:59 PM EST, gotta wrap things up:
Guys, we're signing off now. Won't be answering any more questions. Sad that some assholes pushed down all the real questions. I don't care for me, but I care about the fans and that's not fair for them. Anyway, if you want me to come back on, just give me 10 minutes notice.
Thanks Reddit for hosting me, thanks to the fans.
This is really cool! Do you hope to see more organizations find jobs for shelter dogs? Seems like a great way to keep them from being so lonely.
I was wondering if through all the ups and downs... all the fun times, the bad times, and the sad times. Through thick and thin, high and low, and everything in between... through winning the world series or your three time MVP awards... or correctly predicting an INSANE amount of stock picks...through all the fraud accusations, arrests, rehab stints, and now the come back.
I was wondering, after all that... Would you suck our dicks?
Yes! We've created a web community (rescues2therescue.org) to do exactly that. Our hope is that more conservation organizations will join, and then we'll expand to search and rescue, police departments, military, etc...
You know what... The info is actually impressive... I'm sexually aroused.
Almost all dogs have the olfactory ability to do the work. We select for drive, specifically, toy drive, which translates into an insatiable motivation to work and find their targets. We have german shepherds, belgian malinois, labs, border collies and mixed breed dogs. As you can see in the Shelter Me video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vzdE_HDnBo), both Vicka and Sara are mixed breeds. The ideal dog is also not too big (so we can load them in crates and cars and take them places), but also large enough that they can jump over logs, check high spots on cars and boats and such... here's the current lineup: http://wd4c.org/ourdogs.html
Absolutely not, not for me.
Hey lenny, I was wondering if you could offer some more stock tips?
Also how about you just suck our dicks already
Historically, we have done a lot of ecological monitoring work-- non-invasive sampling of wildlife by finding where they live (by finding their scats) or counting them using fecal DNA. Nowadays we still do the ecological monitoring, but we also stop the spread of invasive species like weeds or zebra mussels, and we do lots of law enforcement work, stopping poaching and wildlife trafficking. You can check it all out at http://WD4C.org.
Go to nailsinvestments.com, if you would follow all my picks, you would be a millionaire today, and no I won't suck your dicks.
What exactly do the dogs detect? And how? Is it similar to police dogs detecting drugs in a car by using smell?
Hey Lenny! Here's a good question, how much money would you be willing pay to suck our dicks?
It's very similar-- in fact a lot of our work these days is law enforcement. They detect whatever we train them to. From the scats of threatened and endangered species, to noxious weeds, and nowadays to guns and ammunition, ivory, rhino horn, and even pangolin scales. Here's a cool video that the folks at http://shelterme.tv made: https://www.facebook.com/ShelterMeTV/videos/1411675875572299/
As much as you want, and you know? I'm selling dreams.
