His apparent complete ignorance of how marijuana grows, which parts contain THC, and whether animals eat it/what happens when they do was Amazing. A fucking mazing. The fact that he apparently has NEVER HEARD of the freeze reflex in small prey animals is similarly astounding.

To be honest, I'd be much more surprised by a non-ignorant DEA agent.

Yeah, that whole industry seems to be riddled with bad information and outright ignorance.

I lived a 4 minute walk to the Keystone lift and then a 7 minute walk to the breck gondola for 4 years. I would board anywhere from 1-3 times a week, unless it was an insane storm week and I'd get at least 3 or 5 runs a day in for a week+.

I gave up home (CO) for Navy and subsequently father with cancer. I haven't been on a board since March 2015.

I got back last night from 2 days at snowshoe, WV. I rode my ass off.

And I am sooo fucking sore at this point. Holy shit. This feels like being a beginner again. Is this what continuing to get old is like? This is awful. My ass hurts. My back hurts. My arm hurts. My calves are throbbing. My shin is pissed off.

I didn't even fucking fall. Christ hell I'm out of practice. Is it 2020 yet? That's when I think I'm relocating back to CO.

Hey, welcome back!

Physics midterm today. I think that I must accidentally be taking the For Dummies version of this class, because I literally got through the test in ten minutes and was like, what? That's it?

I'm glad I didn't waste my time studying for it. Totally ridiculous.

Are you taking the same 1st semester freshman physics course the physics majors have to take?

Yeah, it's 201; usually physics majors take it in the first term of their sophomore year. I should have taken it three years ago but it always conflicted with a class I actually wanted to take. In fact, that's why I finally broke down and am taking it on Saturday, which totally sucks because it's a waste of the whole fucking day.

I'm supposed to be working on my physics lab. I hate physics. I sincerely hate it. It's BORING AS FUCK.

What was the experiment for this one?

The little cart on a track. We couldn't get loggerpro to work with the equipment (most of the class couldn't) so we don't have any trial 2 data, which makes the entire lab pretty meaningless.

What do you even do in that situation where the lab equipment doesn't even work right?

Our solution was to just write about why we were unable to answer certain questions because we had no data. Basically, just operating under the principle that if we explain why we needed certain data, we are demonstrating comprehension of the principles we're supposed to be learning.

OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD, I just listened to the audio!  :lulz: :lulz: :lulz: :lulz: That was AMAZING.

I can’t help but wonder, how hard would it be to talk that guy into writing an Official Endorsement™ for the showing of Reefer Madness to impressionable young people in high schools and church groups?

Not hard. Not hard AT ALL.

I've been seeing all these posts today from Sanders supporters about how great Obama has been. Mostly, the same exact Sanders supporters who also post about Clinton being the devil incarnate.

As far as I can tell, Clinton and Obama are incredibly politically similar. Virtually identical.

Such dissonance, many confuse.

It turns out that a surprising number of people really, really, really, really don't like being told that you don't care about their opinions and don't want to hear them. :lulz:

THEY HAVE TO SHARE. THEY MUST. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO.

Techmology and Scientism / Re: Beef Cell Techmology

I like it, though I have some reservations about the time/energy it would take to assemble all those amino-acids, carbs and various nutrients into actual muscle tissue.  The way in which meat was referred to as "cells" and the preparation by compression into "balls" made me think not...  yet.

Yeah, those were kind of my thoughts. Particularly the resources needed to make the "meat".

E-Prime in a nutshell:



 :lulz: That's definitely how I feel about it.

Whether it's e-prime, grammar, pronunciation, or what have you—isn't any sort of unsolicited analysis of another person's language generally going to be a dick move?

Yeah, actually I didn't always, but I do kinda agree with this, with exceptions. Like when someone is trying to tell you something but won't use generally accepted terminology.
