Yes, the great Drug Storm of 2012... I recall it to this day...

it all started out as a discussion of what are the best materials and shapes to make a bong in 4/20.... somebody said -not that we can now recall who it was now- "Dude, you should lay off the reefer, that shit's bad for yuo" and someone else replied "But pot is good man, its all mother nature's gift to us, its healthy" and another said "Yeah it should be legalized, like fo reals bro"

Oh, how mistaken we were, thinking there could be civil and useful discussions on the internetz...

Days, weeks, months flew by, a dozen threads, 6000 posts, 50 members ditching the place...

Yes, yes, i still recall it to this day...

In all fairness, I just went back and looked at the conversation, Stella.  "YOU'RE NOT AN ADMIN THERE" wasn't actually said in those words or in all caps.  But it was said all the same.

Yep. The connotation.

what forum would actually allow a blow up to occur without censoring it and that isn't already a big turd pile?

None that I'd be interested in.   :lulz:

I see this as being almost like street theater.  A dozen jackasses suddenly appear in a forum, arguing with each other, instead of the regulars.

We should have someone agree with rwhn but only because stoners are lame and (insert hard drug here) is the only one worth doing.

I like the idea of it as performance art. Perhaps when we get to the 50 page mark we can post "this production has been brought to you by discordian improv theatre." it might make for an interesting recruitment as well as show them to never start a drug thread.

I used to live in a building where the junkies were always bitching about the tweakers because the tweakers were up all night, and the alkies bitched about the junkies and crackheads.  :lol:

Bitching about lottery addicts is LEGITIMATE, though.

Woman: And I'll have 3 Powerballs for tonight's drawing and three for tomorrow's, and, a uh, Texas Twostep...four of those for today and three for tomorrow...no, I said three for today and four for tomorrow, oh, nevermind I'll take them all....Give me a six Mega Millions and some scratch offs...no, not Find the 9's, let me get a four Bingos and three Magnificen 7's and seven Diamond Dollars...and ten of those yellow ones, are those new? Oh, and I need some pick threes, no, don't let the machine pick, I want to play 31 and, uh...

Child: Mom?

Woman: WHAT?

Child: Can I get some gum?

Woman: NO!!!!! WE CAN'T AFFORD IT!!!!!!! Oh, and 27, and, uhhh...

While that is a fair and accurate assessment, the fact that I was behind them nic fitting makes it humorous and slightly hypocritical.

I mentioned it to Richter a couple of weeks ago actually, like, "Hey I have a real addiction! Fuck off!" and he mentioned that they were addicted to the neurochemicals that are released in the process of gambling.

Gambling addiction is the most retarded addiction though, I will say.

It takes a minute to buy cigarettes.

It takes twenty minutes to buy a buttload of lottery tickets.

Therefore, THEY'RE WORSE.  :lol:

Excellent point. And often they scratch them right there and use their winnings to buy the next scratchy.

I remember hating them when I was a stock boy at the liquor store too.

Them and Cal.

Cal would, over the course of a day, buy a six pack of Heineken (which is shite beer anyway), but he wouldn't buy the six pack in a go.

No. He would buy 3 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon, and 1 at night.

This process invariably broke up 3 six-packs. Fucker would never go to the singles door. Our nickname for him was Alien Ant Farm.

Yeah, pretty much, and with someone who really has it bad it can mimic the effects some drugs have on people.  One of my former jobs was coordinating a hotline and network for problem gamblers.  Oh, the stories I heard.

Gambling is fun for everyone from time to time. Hell, I'm rather fond of roullette. I've played Keno maybe 3 or 4 times, and that's been more of a why the hell not. Or the rare times I play Mass Millions because the jack pot is like, 596,493,000. Why not? And that would be pretty awesome, no? But I don't feel a compulsion to go and buy scratch tickets or play Keno. Doing that sort of thing regularly, frequently, points to some sort of addiction.

The main difference is though, I was tempted to tear their heads off to get my smokes. They were blissfully unaware of how badly their deaths were fantasized about.  :lulz:
