So essentially, the enemy of my enemy is not my friend, he's just another moronic, entitled turd in the bucket.

Mangrove, even if you're right, NEVER GET IN THE WAY OF A GOOD POLEMIC.
Anyway, I still hate Chick Corea with the passion of a thousand suns.
How the hell did Herbie Hancock turn out so fucking cool if he started in Jazz?
This man made it his life's work to ruin three, I repeat, three kinds of music-- and he succeeded.
This is the guy that decided it would be a great idea to graft jazz, rock and roll, and latin american music together in a hideous, Frankenstonian Cerebus of a genre called "Jazz Fusion".
So awful was his power that he was able to convice Miles Davis that this was a good idea. Granted, Miles was on a lot of heroin at the time, but still...
What's worse is that this is directly responsible for the abject horror we know as "soft jazz". And because of that, RWHN.
I want to go back in time and crush this man's fingers with a 10-pound hammer.
(for instance, Moses didn't cross the Red Sea, it was the Reed Sea near the Nile Delta, which could have easily flooded on it's own natural power.)
There's historical evidence of Moses? Or do you mean that another translation said "Reed sea"?
Are Red and Reed as easily confusable in Arameic?
thanks suu! always interesting
You missed abolition. That's in there.
I think that Pergamos is essentially saying that he doesn't think that secondary harm that results from regular and frequent heroin use should be considered harm from heroin. I disagree, because by that logic we can also say that HIV is harmless because nobody gets sick from HIV, they get sick from secondary infections made possible by their HIV-compromised immune systems. Secondary physical harm is still physical harm, particularly when you're looking at an addiction rate of about 23% of all users.
No, I am saying that the graph is not well made because it is putting the harm due to addiction on a different axis and then putting that on the same graph. It's like making a graph that ranks cars on fuel consumption and exhaust produced. Harm from addiction is going to eclipse physical harm from the drug itself unless the drug itself is insanely physically harmful (like, say, krokodil)
