The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

The politics of envy leads to an evil place.Eaton Rapids Joe


Quote II

“You’re right that when there’s a gun in the household you’re more likely to have a child get shot or the owner get shot than to kill, let’s say, an intruder into the house. Those are just numbers; those are just the facts.” Andrew Yang


Quote III

"The Israeli government can do what they want. It's fake news," Stephanie Grisham


Quote IV

“However, while I agree that women can do things in a different way, if you’re trying to stop no-deal Brexit then the key thing is to bring people together, not to divide them on the basis of their gender." UK MP Anna Soubry


Quote V

“It’s enough to eat a little less. You talk about environmental pollution. It’s enough to poop every other day. That will be better for the whole world,” Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro


Quote VI


"Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards." Vernon Sanders


Quote VII


“Given this generous millionaire is voicing concern for the fate of the Open Arms migrants, we thank him: he can take back to Hollywood, on his private plane, all the people aboard and support them in his villas. Thank you Richard!” Interior Minister Matteo Salvini

The SJW (How ironic Warriors) and the Thought Police, have failed when it comes to the Washington Redskins.

A new survey of Native American opinions on the Washington Redskins' nickname once again demonstrates underwhelming opposition to the moniker and just how out of touch the so-called "mainstream media" really is. The new survey duplicates the Washington Post's 2016 poll finding that 90 percent of Natives are not offended by the Redskins' nickname ― much to the disappointment of writers at the Post. Like Theresa Vargas, who insists the name is a dictionary-defined slur, no matter how many people accept the word.

The Post polled 504 self-identified Native Americans and found universal acceptance of Indian nicknames. A 2016 Post poll and a 2008 Annenberg Public Policy Center poll told the same story. "I know, I know. We’ve all already given a lot of emotional energy to this issue, and three years ago, we agreed, whether or not we said it, to move on," writes a disappointed Vargas.

Is there a link between pot use and mass shootings? Some people think so.

And, in all honesty, we cannot rule out a connection between increasing marijuana use, mental illness and the recent spate of mass shootings by disturbed young males.

We don’t yet know much about the mental state or drug use of the El Paso or Dayton killers. But a former girlfriend of Dayton killer Connor Betts, 24, has indicated he was mentally ill, and two of his friends interviewed by reporters this week mentioned his previous drug use.

Just last year, the Parents Opposed to Pot lobby group tried to sound the alarm on the link between marijuana and mass shootings, compiling a list of mass killers it claims were heavy users of marijuana from a young age, from Aurora, Colo., shooter James Holmes and Tucson, Ariz., shooter Jared Loughner to Chattanooga, Tenn., shooter Mohammad Abdulazeez.

Elections have consequences. And Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY)isn't prepared to let the Kavanaugh confirmation go.

The latest mobilization against now-Justice Kavanaugh doesn’t relate to fantasyland, however, it’s his emails from the Bush White House…because Democrats just can’t let it go (via Washington Examiner):

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday demanded access to Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s records from his employment in the George W. Bush White House, citing the panel’s role in “judicial disqualification and misconduct.”

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler sent a letter to the National Archives asking the records department “to complete its review and release records,” to the panel related to Kavanaugh’s 2001-2006 White House service.

[…]

According to Nadler, the Archives has completed processing records related to Kavanaugh’s time in the White House counsel’s office and he is seeking all of his emails and office files from that time.

Nadler also asked the Archives to work with panel Democrats to speed up the production of the documents from Kavanaugh’s staff secretary tenure, which is not scheduled for release until 2021.

The House plays no role in confirming judicial nominees.

Free college. Free health care. What else can Bernie Sanders give us if elected? Everything you wanted to know about aliens but the government wouldn't tell you. Sorry it's a Rolling Stone link.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), during an interview on Joe Rogan’s podcast this week, promised the host that he would expose what the government may know about aliens because his wife Jane would insist he do so.

Rogan asked how a possible future President Sanders would handle what some might consider sensitive information: “If you found out something about aliens. If you found out something about UFOs, would you let us know?”

“Well, I’ll tell you, my wife would demand that I tell you,” Sanders replied with a laugh.

Nothing says romance like going to Denny's and being chased by police. Genius Award Winner.

Finding love in this crazy world is hard enough. First dates can often range from awkward meet-cutes, to near-disasters, to having a perfect evening. However, one woman in Florida may think twice about swiping right after her latest first date decided to flee from police when he was pulled over for a tag violation.

According to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office, deputies attempted to make a traffic stop on Thursday in Palm Coast, Florida of a gray Dodge Charger. The driver initially pulled over near a church, but as deputies then fled, according to the arrest report. Deputies gave chase with their lights and sirens blazing, pursuing the vehicle onto U.S. Highway 1. Seeking to stop the chase as soon as possible, deputies deployed "stop-sticks," which hit the tires, but the car was able to keep going.

The chase ended after deputies discovered the vehicle and a woman who was standing behind the Dodge Charger, but the driver was nowhere to be found.

The woman informed deputies she'd been along for the ride and that she'd met the Orlando-area man on an online dating site and had agreed to go to Denny's before heading back to her house. When her date was pulled over for a tag violation, the date reportedly told the woman that he'd go to jail if he were caught and decided to flee the deputies anyway. The woman told her date to stop for police, but he refused because he said he would go to jail.

I was just reading at the Daily Mail: Some says AG Barr himself paid a visit to that MCC jail right after Epstein's "suicide attempt" a while back. They say Barr was pissed off about that and went there in person to chew some people out.

After this, Barr is probably topping cotton shore nuff.

45 "You're right that when there's a gun in the household you're more likely to have a child get shot or the owner get shot than to kill, let's say, an intruder into the house. Those are just numbers; those are just the facts."

Also loads of deception and fraud.

to "get shot" is quite different than "to kill". Look at HeyJackAss and see that quite a number of people get shot while relatively few get killed. Also, he narrows down the range of defensive play to the one "intruder in your house" scenario - most intruders don't enter in to occupied dwellings.

Also, the vast majority of "owners who get shot" are suicides. At least a self inflicted gunshot clears up any mystery on the cause of death in the view of the life insurance investigator, whereas driving full speed into a bridge abutment, dragging many people into this suicide event, may result in fraud.

Leftists love death, misery and pain. So when a gun prevents death and injury from some criminal, Andrew Yang and others bury it as the preservation of life, liberty, property and peace are anathema to their death cult's demands for blood.

It is a complete waste of time dealing with these soulless subhumans. They are cancer. They lie all the time. They never enter into any discussion in good faith - it is always to rob you of your freedom, wealth, dignity and soul.

78 73 children died of accidental firearm discharge in their home in 2018. 20 children died drowning in a bucket in 2018.

I agree guns are more dangerous than buckets.

But no snark , over 450 kids under five drowned in a home pool, bathtubs , containers, etc.

91 @41 Given how often I hear that marijuana is not only harmless but a wonder drug for lots of things, I take it for granted it has all sorts of nasty side effects we'll only find out much later.

------------------

People have mentioned here in the comments that it apparently stunts the emotional growth of teenagers.

Problem is, the federal government has completely banned any and all testing of it. And I'm not aware of research into the effects taking place in any other country, either. So most of the "information" about its possible effects is pure propaganda pushed by those most heavily for or against its use.

There seems to be some merit to the idea that long-term use of a drug produces the opposite effect that the drug does, when you are not on it. So mellow potheads get pissed off, coke addicts get depressed, alcoholics become really sensitive to everything, and so on.

97 The effects of marijuana are certainly unknown and, if try to do a study the dopers and their lawyers, swarm out and scream at you.
Given the mass medicating of kids, especially boys, the last 20-30 years, combine with much more powerful weed. No one knows anything about the effects.
The stuff may well make for paranoia and possibly schizo-affective disorders.

It's why Dollar General has taken off. Their motto is that they serve the unserved. They plop down stores in little nowhere hamlets and carry everything from kids' tennis shoes, to motor oil, to canned goods. I was in PA a couple of years ago, and was on my way to visit the Flight 93 memorial. Out in the middle of absolutely nowhere, down at the bottom of a mountain road was a Dollar General.

145 "AG Barr himself
paid a visit to that MCC jail right after Epstein's "suicide attempt" a
while back. They say Barr was pissed off about that and went there in
person to chew some people out."

I was called idiotic and dumb for saying Barr was responsible for his department, and should have intervened and assigned someone trusted to be directly involved.


Only idiots think the head of the department are responsible for their department.


Interesting if Barr went there with that intent ... too bad he left it at that and didn't make other changes, like SuperMax or getting his own guys right there babysitting.


When I say "Barr is responsible" that is what I mean, and Barr seemed to agree ... he went down there personally. He is still responsible for not taking better steps ... but that does not mean he was part of the DeepState effort to make those arrangements to leave Epstein alone, remove his cellmate, not check on him ... but Barr was responsible for oversight and failed. simple ... I don't get all the name calling over that obvious statement.


Barr trusted the bureaucracy too much imo ... should have taken stronger measures ... never underestimate DeepState reach. ... tick tock.

The thing is, I hate humid summers, and especially the bugs they attract (cockroaches foremost, followed by mosquitos), and tornados are not something I ever want to risk. Somehow they bother me more than hurricanes. I want to live near an interesting city, but not in it, have about 5 acres, and be in an area with horses.

Honestly do we even know what the potential downside is? It's been pushed so heavily as a "wonder drug."

What a turnaround! And..why? It went from sinful to saintly with no stops in between.

What the heck is going on with the Italy stuff around here btw? And the Napolitans, Calabrese...they're...welp. They're Southern.

------------------

I didn't say that the federal government should subsidize a study of it. I said that they'd come down like a ton of bricks on anyone who did try and conduct a study of it.

There's a pretty big difference between the two.

I do recall hearing about a change in policy. But iirc it's a pretty recent change. The current attitude toward marijuana use would probably discourage any such study that had even the slightest chance of coming up with something suggesting that marijuana use isn't a good thing.

But now is when our former home (New Braunfels) is having its usual string of 100+ degree days with humidity that kicks the heat index about ten degrees up from that. We couldn't take the hot and humid summers anymore so relocated to points west. I would visit by mid-September to get a real feel for the place.

240 Apparently some rag posted a whole page of victim names of mass shootings, to show how big the problem really is, to dumb people.

My first thought was "now do Islamic terrorists."

My second was to remember a similar stunt that Time magazine did, back when Time magazine was a thing. They published pictures of every "victim of gun violence" in a week.

The next week, they did "balance." Did they show the perps' pictures? Did they show people who stopped themselves from being victims from having a firearm? No, they put the head of the NRA on the cover, with "I'm the NRA." The narrative they were going for could not have been clearer.

I am beside myself with joy when I think how poorly that shit works now.

241 Also, the vast majority of "owners who get shot" are suicides.

Whether a person commits suicide by gun, hanging, or pills, the person is just as dead. I've known four families who have had young people, in their teens or early twenties, commit suicide. And yes, one of the kids killed himself by gunning his car.

I've also known of two people who had terminal cancer, one used a gun, the other used pills that he had saved up.

245 General stores in very small towns generally have a wide range of items for sale that are not usually found in the same store, let alone the same aisle. Love to poke around there because you never know what you might find.

Growing up there was an old time department store in the tiny town my Grandmother lived in called Wiprud's in North Central Montana. The floor was uneven planks and of course wooden sidewalk out front. That store had unbelievable amount of things for sale.

She would drop us off at the store and head down to one of the taverns to wait. Still have an inscribed metal spatula from the store.

Depending on what you want from a city, you could pick from Nashville, Knoxville, or Chattanooga. Like TX, no state income taxes (except on taxable interest and dividends...and they're in the process of eliminating that as well, by 2022). Also, land is probably a little cheaper.

It must be the only thing in all of Federal Government Budgeting History to ever receive a genuine cut, not a reduction in the rate of growth, but a bona fide cut.

More likely to find unicorns, Bigfoot and Obama's long form birth certificate than a budget cut.

Also, isn't the first year of any presidency running on the previous administration's budget?

If humidity is a deal breaker, I'd avoid any part of Texas east of Odessa. Problem with that is that you are then living in West Texas. My favorite low-humidity areas of the country are eastern Oregon and most of Utah. If Boise, Salt Lake City or Vegas are interesting enough cities to suit you, you might have a look around. Land is still cheap in both areas, and there are not many natural disasters in either place. Both get hot, but it is, as they say, a dry heat.

and then my wife has always been amused/exasperated by the way, when I am very tired, that I can slip into a dream state even though my eyes are open and I'm still talking to her. Only happens if I'm real tired, but for example we can be having a conversation late at night, and it'll be going well, and suddenly I'll say "wait you gotta turn here" and she'll say "what?" and I'll say "don't miss the turn!" and she'll realize that she may be in bed talking to me, but mentally I'm in the car driving somewhere. Well that's one way to kill a conversation.

377 the "responsibility" for Epstein lies at many levels. Yes the buck stop with Trump ... but given there is a war against a powerful domestic enemy (or many) ... there will be losses. This is no normal war as the enemy is hiding at every level.


Identifying the enemy is a first step ... and when the enemy has metastasized into every bureaucratic office, the white hats have to emerge and bring down their co-workers the DeepState. It will not be easy ... but this is why I include Barr's actions as a failure ... a loss. It does not mean he IS DeepState, but that he failed to stop/recognize DeepState in getting to Epstein. He went there to personally intervene ... that was not enough. A battle lost does not make Barr the enemy. (but we don't know, it is all shades of gray, in many respects).

I still think big things are going down ... tick tock.

And it was easy to get at video rental stores. I think the movie was already in the public domain, so stores could crank out as many copies of it themselves as they wanted.

Also notice that each of those "rights" have a pie-in-the-sky adjective attached, all of which will be null-and-void if the commies ever succeed in securing those "rights" for everyone (everyone not in the gulags, that is).

Memphis is kind of a shitty river town. Hot and humid almost all the time. And Elvis. It's still all about Elvis. Sort of.

My sister and her husband moved to Nashville from Naples (God's waiting room), because her husband grew up in Nashville, and his kids live there, and also his best friend.
Nashville and the surrounding area are really nice. But house prices are getting really high, and it's becoming more expensive to live there. Confluence of something like 5 interstate highways. Traffic there is horrendous at times.

462 Excellent!

The answer is two. Two cats the acceptable number of cats before you become a crazy cat lady. Any more than two cats, and it's an exponential growth in craziness. Hope that helps.
Posted by: Harry Paratestes at August 12, 2019 11:35 PM (GBteo)

See I would disagree. I would say a relationship can invalidate the crazy cat lady moniker. Part of the thing about the Crazy Cat Lady is the sense of isolation- except for the cats.

I don't regret voting for President Trump, and I doubt any better candidate for 2020 exists. But like his failure to secure our borders, this incident undermines my trust in the guy. He convinced us that he himself is not of the elite, and we look sillier every day we go on believing that.

Course, they're all dead now. I have a new set of cats now. And one of my cats got re-homed with Hogmartin.

Harry Reid: The Filibuster Is Suffocating the Will of the American People
https://t.co/Hw62xFAIlM

To save our country's future, Democrats must abolish this arcane Senate rule.

By Harry Reid

...If a Democratic president wants to tackle the most important issues facing our country, then he or she must have the ability to do so - and that means curtailing Republicans' ability to stifle the will of the American people. It's time to allow a simple majority vote instead of the 60-vote threshold now required for legislation.

568 To save our country's future, Democrats must abolish this arcane Senate rule.

I agree with him, but not for the dodgy reasons he gives. Also, the Democrats will never get rid of the filibuster.

The reason I want it gone is it mostly benefits the party in power. You can vote for something secure in the knowledge it won't pass because you voted no on cloture. You still get your 100% rating from whatever group your constituents care about while simultaneously taking money from political pressure groups acting against your constituents' interest.

Filibusters are theater for the rubes, and nearly every successful filibuster is successful because the majority wants it to be successful.

Posted by: LeftCoast Dawg at August 13, 2019 12:11 AM (sy5kK)

Thanks! And to garrett, too.

The Ford tranny was actually easier to work on. I did not need any spring compressors to remove snap rings. No, wait, I used my drill press for one. And the Ford does not have triple-nested clutches and servos like the input drum on the Chevy tranny.

But the re and re on the Chevy is a lot easier, so there's that.

And as far as utility (to me) goes, a Suburban is a lot more useful rig to own, and haul stuff with, than the F150 Super-Crew. As a truck, the Super-Crew makes a very fine car. Quiet, comfortable, good on gas, but you cannot haul an object longer than 5 and a half feet without the tailgate down. I could get 12-foot lumber into the 'burb, and close the barn doors. Advantage: 'burb.

I know a hell of a lot of people who've smoked pot in the past and some who still do. Never heard of anyone being plagued with hallucinations.

And no, pot is not "incredibly harmful". It may be somewhat harmful. Or maybe not. We don't know. From what I can see the most harmful effects are likely to be the same sorts of thing you see in smokers - emphysema, lung cancer, coronary artery disease, etc.

I mean it already exists. Because most first time offenders get offered "criminal conviction or rehab" as part of the plea, and they almost all take "rehab."

But I've definitely smoked a my fair share of weed over the years. Way less so these days, but I have to say -- it's harmful in the same way alcohol is harmful. Like, yeah, if you smoke weed all day every day, probably not healthy.

Occasionally smoking weed? Eh, I don't see the big deal.

It doesn't really fit my current lifestyle to get high regularly, but I'll still occasionally eat some edibles or smoke weed. I've never hallucinated or had any adverse reactions beyond being lazy and goofy. Which, again, is not how I'd want to spend all day every day of my life, but occasionally? Eh, I don't really see the problem.

The gun laws in jersey are pretty straight forward.

In order to buy a handgun you need a firearms ID card and apply for a permit.

I was like, first last and security only adds up to L, how do you get N? And it turns out that one month's rent is the realtor fee.

Y'all seen anything like that?
Posted by: Bandersnatch at August 13, 2019 12:25 AM (fuK7c)

In my career as renter, thankfully now long ago, I never dealt with realtors. Direct with landlords, or rental agencies. And the normal drill with realtors, is that the seller pays the fee.

I think a couple of Mindful Webworker's old comics mention hallucinations caused by pot.

I also recall that when I was in High School a kid told me that he had hallucinated a leprechaun the first time he smoked pot. I don't know how trustworthy he was though.

Pot does not cause hallucinations. Coke and speed can maybe make you see things that haven't quite happened yet. Acid makes stuff weird and wavy but I never saw anything that wasn't there. And the only time I had 'ludes I woke up having sex with the girl who gave them to me.

Well technically you cannot transport any firearm into the state without a firearms ID card.

You cannot transport any handgun into the state without a permit for every handgun.


When transporting any firearm, the firearm cannot be loaded and the ammunition needs to be in a locked storage container that is seperate from the firearm.

Have 3 good friends in Property Management, each 20 years+.

The fee is paid by the home owner for services rendered to manage the property and find and manage the renter.

One month's rent is the going rate, but the renter doesn't pay it.

Between the 3 good friends, they probably manage well over 500 individual properties, some being apartment complexes.

663 New Zealand Confiscation Update
August 12, 2019 https://t.co/nxmlNSUS7E?amp=1
The first month of the NZ MSSA Amnesty is past, and the results are in.

"Buyback" Events: 90
Firearms turned in: 10,242
Average firearms/event: 113

This isn't looking good for the government. As previously noted, there are a rough-guesstimated 158,730 affected guns.

Overall running compliance rate: 6.45%

On average, with 250 scheduled "buybacks," they need to collect 635 guns per event. They're getting less than one-fifth of that: 17.8% of what they need.

ETA: It's also worth noting that every time I get new numbers on buyback events, the average number of firearms turned in drops. Compliance is getting worse as the deadline approaches.

They're on track to approximately match Australia's 20% compliance rate.

Bear in mind that rate of compliance is based on my own calculations (based on actual payouts and the government's estimate of how much it will cost) of 158,730 affected firearms. Other people are still tossing around estimates of 1.2-1.5 MILLION. If it is 1.5 million, the compliance rate is a hilarious 0.68% so far.

Yeah, no.

Those states IGNORE the fuck out of that law, and prosecute EVERYTHING they can get their hands on as regards "firearms offenses" as might be traveling through their jurisdictions.

The U.S. Supreme Court just whacked Maryland's pee-pee, as regards using scans of out of state plates to see who has a CCW, as "probable cause" for a traffic stop and search.

Bander, there's a federal law that allows you to drive through a state transporting firearms.

But some states (NJ is famous for this) take it VERY literally.

Like if you stop in NJ for the cheap gas (less cheap now that Christie upped the gas tax) you're no longer "driving through" and have now stopped in the state.

So, IDK. I'd do some research first. As far as I know, NJ is one of the least firearm friendly states in the country.

That's not true. No one hallucinates from pot. NO ONE. You can eat handfuls of the most powerful weed on Earth and you aren't going to be hallucinating.

Whoever tells you stuff like that is full of shit. Pot is not acid. It's not even 1/1000000000th acid. Totally different worlds.

It seems that a lot of people like to play fast and loose with the definition of "hallucinate". Optical illusions and fuzzy vision are not "hallucinating". Paranoid suspicions of people and things and possible sounds are not "hallucinations". Trip on acid and you'll know what hallucinating is and then you'll never even try to apply that notion to pot.

Here's a paper on the subject:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/
articles/PMC5908416/

Remove line feed.

Cannabis has been historically classified as a hallucinogen. However, subjective cannabis effects do not typically include hallucinogen-like effects. Empirical reports of hallucinogen-like effects produced by cannabis in controlled settings, particularly among healthy research volunteers, are rare and have mostly occurred after administration of purified delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) rather than whole plant cannabis.

....

Acute cannabis exposure in a healthy adult male resulted in self-reported hallucinations that rated high in magnitude on several subscales of the HRS. However, the hallucinatory experience in this case was qualitatively different than that typically experienced by participants receiving classic and atypical hallucinogens, suggesting that the hallucinatory effects of cannabis may have a unique pharmacological mechanism of action. This type of adverse event needs to be considered in the clinical use of cannabis.

NONE of the Tylenol/Iburprofen/Advil/etc things do much more for me than to piss me off.

For me, it's Aspirin in increasing doses, until I have to Break Glass in case of Emergency, and reach for the Vicodin.

And the fuckers are making that option impossible, now.

Here's how conservative I am with that stuff.

Gimme a bottle of 60 pills of 500 mg. Vicodin.

I will still have "leftover" pills, more than two years later.

Mostly, I'll snap one in half, which will suffice as to take the edge off. Old injuries don't tend to show much mercy when wintertime Blue Northers blow through.

And now doctors are scared shitless to prescribe more than a dozen at a time.

Thanks. And I'm not a pot religionist, I just happen to work and spend a lot of my time in a state where pot is recreationally legal and I occasionally use it. I used to smoke a decent amount of pot when I was younger.

I personally would not encourage people to use pot -- as South Park succinctly put it, I think pot makes people okay with being lazy and doing nothing.

But, at the same time, I could say a lot worse about alcohol.

As for the medicinal benefits of pot or cbd oil? I don't know, I don't have any medical issues. But I know enough people who swear by it that I can't discount it. I'm talking about people in their 60s who are rock ribbed anti-hippy conservatives who never (or rarely) smoked pot in their youth, and swear that small dosages of weed are better for their ailments then pharmaceutical drugs.

So, like I said -- I can't discount that.

Could be. It's hard to describe the affects of marijuana to someone who has never used it.

Basically, you find shit funny, you grub out on food, and you feel a close bond to people around you. Kind of similar to alcohol I guess, but it's a very different feeling.

Also, various strains affect different people differently, so even that is generalizing. But if I had to say, in general, what pot is like -- it's like drinking a few glasses of wine.

Oh, and sometimes people get mildly paranoid. Like not in a super weird way, just in a "dude, did you hear that noise? I think someone is breaking in to the house" way. haha

idk, edibles are definitely a different high than smoking. I don't particularly enjoy it. At low dosages, it definitely chills you out (she takes it before bed instead of taking sleeping pills. In that context, it's perfect.)

At higher dosages, it's ... for me, a bit unpleasant. Like we have fun together, but I feel like I just drank several cups of coffee after being up for a day but am still tired (so, racing heart, kind of edgy, but feel like I've been awake for 24+ hours)

Had been doing them for so long he was off-the-deep-end paranoid. "You don't even have to sleep with him. Every time he gets frisky say 'What was that? Did you hear that?' and he'll spend the next hour running around looking for the DEA surveillance team."

Bingo. That's just what I was reading.

All know "real hallucinogens" effect various receptors in the brain. THC has no effect on those receptors.

So, even in very high doses where the "THC pyschotic state" is induced, any "hallucinations" are something different that what real hallucinations are.

Because marijuana is a schedule I drug, there really haven't been a ton of studies on it in the US.

I'm just going by my personal experience, and the experiences of virtually everyone around me (nearly all of whom have smoked weed.)

Granted, it's anecdotal.

I prefer a few beers over smoking some weed, but I don't really see the problem with people smoking weed. As far as I can tell, used in moderation, it's not any more problematic than drinking some beers.

Obviously, if people sit around smoking weed (or drinking beer) all day, that's problematic.

Since I am on a work computer... a 'friend' of mine who only experimented once or twice in college had pretty severe mental effects those one or two times.

IIRC, he said he found Family Guy not just funny, but remarked that what they were saying was truly outrageous and could not possibly be approved for being on the air (first run.)

Also something about it making his OCD worse (which some might term paranoia anyway.) One time he did not smoke at all, the other he smoked like two packs of cigarettes in a few hours. He also reported that the high started to make him wonder if it would ever end.

Not a completely unpleasant experience, so he says, but not as good as a good drunk of alcohol.

No, definitely not. And that's what I mean by it doesn't make you hallucinate at all.

Like if you're on acid or shrooms, you see / hear shit that doesn't exist. It's bizarre and, frankly, a bit horrifying.

On weed ... eh, as I put it with my friends who do a bit too much weed -- you just get way too much in your own head. You kind of overthink things.

But you're not seeing / thinking things that are not there. You just tend to get worried about shit that you wouldn't be worried about when you're not high.

Like if I hear a noise right now, I'd assume it was my neighbor, or a car driving by, or whatever, and not care about it. If I were super high, I might think it was the cops coming to break in my door or something else. The noise actually happened, it's just how you process it that changes when you're high.

Driving over Lion's Gate Bridge while high on pot was interesting. Seemed like it would never end, possibly because I was going about 15 mph.

And I ate some hash brownies once, maybe ate too much, and the only effect was extreme vertigo. I clung to the floor like a limpet, in mortal fear of being flung off it. Managed to crawl into bed, and it subsided, and I went to sleep. Never puked though.

I came to the conclusion that pot is not for me, and I now avoid it. And if I were ever piss tested, and pissed hot for MJ, I could lose my job ( to the extent that I even have one, right now). So why indulge in a drug that:

1. costs money

2. I don't like

If I drive, I do not drink. It is just a responsible action. It may have no effect on me BUT there is no reason to roll a D20 if it is not necessary. You are 21 and want to drink, don't drive. If you are at home and get blotto, more power and keep aspirin for the aftereffects.

The maryjawanna should be treated the same way. You want to drive buzzed, you are saying you are willing to roll the D20 and all the consequences. You want to buzz in the home, fine. But don't subject me to your D20 roll.
The thing is, I see the hooka bars that cater to pot smokers. Subjects exit said facility and clamber into a vehicle and drive off.
YOU think you are good to go, be sure you are willing to suffer the full consequences if you get a 'lucky' roll. If the worst happen, we may be on the receiving end.

As I understand it, most of the growers used cloned strains of known potency. The state requires the submission of samples from each crop to an independent lab for testing for THC content, as well as stuff like E. coli, mold, solvents, heavy metals, etc.

826 819 No, I didn't Farmer. I usually just check in when I get home and then wander off when it is time to go to bed, unremarked.

I chose it because: 1) I am a fan of Roman History. and 2) I am fascinated by stories like El Cid or Aetius who were devoted servants (at least that is how they were portrayed the actuality is more complicated or different) who were either assassinated or reviled by the very people they served. The story of Valentian boasting of having Aetius assassinated and a member of the court saying 'What I do know is that you have cut off your Right hand with your Left.' is evocative to me.

Later Roman history to me feels like a Greek tragedy. You know how it has to end, and some people struggle to prevent it, but everyone keeps doing the same stupid shit and it all falls apart.

ONT in a nutshell

828 D20? Supernerd thing. See DandD.

Let me be clear. You have a hand of five cards in poker. There are a 2 of hearts, 3 of spades, 5 of clubs, 7 of hearts and a Jack of diamonds. You keep the Jack and discard 4 in the hopes of a royal flush.

Same odds of a D20. Roll a die with 20 sides.
A roll of 20 is remote. But it usually results in really unusual events.

The whole post was an attempt to make sure that if you are willing to smoke or drink and drive or use any substance that *ucks up your motor skills, you had better accept the consequences.

Washington State has done some research on this and yeah, you can smoke too much to drive safely.

Ow! Fingers.

Ah yes, Democrat bigotry at work.

They fully expect Muslims to do it because bless their hearts the poor stupid things' brains don't work like white people's and they can't help it because they don't know any better, so that's not terrorism, silly.

And somehow REAL racism is the belief that Muslims are fully capable of learning, interacting, and behaving appropriately in society.

It's amazing when you think about it.

The Seventh Fleet Jagmans show what happens when PQS becomes a sign-off, not a rigorous standard. Bad things. People die.

The aviation community has always set high standards, because of the continual need to land, at night, on a flight deck.

But Like I said, he has become very old school in his two short years of service.

And he, as well as many of his friends all desire a return to standards, discipline and eliminating the 'Participation trophy' mentality of their youth.

True.

I used to read the Submarine blog The Stupid Shall Be Punished. And of course the aviation blog Neptunus Lex. Still miss Lex. Lots of good stories from a different perspective.

"No matter how elite the unit, there is still a finite amount of stupidity." I have generalized my saying to include our so-called societal elites, but their standard is much lower than in the aviation or submarine community.
