And how many from alcohol?

He never addresses this issue. He has freely admitted that he likes to drink and will not acknowledge that a double standard exists.

Sorry, batman, not trying to be a dick, but in past discussions you've yet to address the valid question of why you believe alcohol is an acceptable drug and marijuana is not? I would really like to hear your thoughts on that.

Do you see that the crime is because it's illegal? Do you honestly believe smoking "wacky weed" turns you into a homicidal maniac? I honestly believe you to be more intelligent than that but I swear, you seem to go out of your way not to get it.

An amendment that went to voters got shot down, mostly because the pro-drug freaks sponsoring it wanted to make it open for anyone to possess it.

Unfortunately, I feel the bigger obstacle against any form of legalization is due to the "Reefer Madness" mentality of the general populace. I'd like to think we're a lot smarter than that now.

I forget who is the pro-geef person here

That would be me (among others)!

but last year in Minneapolis, one-third of the homicides were related to the sale/use/distribution of geef.

Remember prohibition? Take something away when vast numbers of people want it and the criminal element is guaranteed to step in and fill the void. Prohibition creates the crime. Period.

Just something to think about when people say it is harmless

Yes, it is relatively harmless. Certainly less so than cigarettes and alcohol. You can't point to the crime that results from the unjust laws as evidence that marijuana is bad for you. If someone made apples illegal and a criminal element arose to supply people with apples, would you then use this as evidence of apples being dangerous?

Seriously, this is basic common sense stuff. I'm not saying you have to endorse the use of marijuana, but let's be honest about the situation.

...quick, someone find some humorous way to make this relevant to cow emissions...

See post #49 - not that it's relevant

Peter Gibbons: Let me ask you something. When you come in on Monday, and you're not feelin' real well, does anyone ever say to you, 'Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays'?

Lawrence: No. No, man. Shit, no, man. I believe you'd get your ass kicked sayin' something like that, man.

Hey, I dont give 2 shits what you do.

Is that with or without the badge?

It's America! You have the right to succeed (but not fail according to Dems), have a job or not (the Dems will bail you out if you don't), and you have the right to break the law and go to jail.

I would add to that the right to pusue happiness so long as that pursuit does not harm others.

Saw an interesting article on yahoo this AM that the US has the highest incarceration rate. I don't think it has to do with tough laws (as the article states), I just think it has to do with the fact we have a shitty populous.

Others would argue that some of those laws are unjust and should not be on the books in the first place.

I wouldn't have any issue with sitting down and having a beer with ya. (But you have to buy hippy!)

Let me know next time your in NJ, but you will have to buy (Sam Adams please) as my welfare check hasn't come in yet.

Everything is great in moderation

Such as smoking marijuana, for example. You and I are finally starting to see eye to eye, batman. Nice to see you finally coming around!

Wow - what a puss. They don't hurt that bad, and it isn't that big of a deal to get hit with a pb in the head.

Depends. I took a shot in the ear once. And when I say in the ear, I mean, IN the ear! Saw stars for a few minutes after that one.

They've made various claims that are utterly impossible... that everything in the show can be explained by science (and not science fiction).

Interesting. I hadn't heard that before. I think they're well beyond the point of being able to explain everything using real science unless the events are only occuring in someone's head which would be disappointing.

On the other hand, I have no problem with a science-fiction based story which is what I figured this was. So long as the ideas are original and interesting I'm willing to suspend my disbelief.

Also, according to the DVD commentary, the shark logo was never meant to be seen by television viewers and was included as an easter egg to be discovered by DVD viewers as a joke. However, the lighting for the scene wound up being brighter than intended and so it was inadvertantly spotted by many. Not sure if they're going to try and work it into the plot now or just pretend it never happened.

Well, I'll give the writers the benefit of the doubt that they won't just drop it altogether or give us some cheesy "it was all just a dream" type ending. From what I've read, the entire story arc has already been mapped out and the challenge is stretching it out long enough so the network can continue to make money without losing the viewer's interest in the process.

And so far they haven't hopelessly screwed themselves, like Lost has.

Just curious about why you think Lost is hopelessly screwed. Heroes is pretty good but I still think Lost is a much better show IMHO.

Atheists and agnostics are also "wrong" because they can't prove for a fact that a god doesn't exist, just as religions can't prove for a fact that a god does exist.

Agnostics do not say that God does not exist. Agnostics question the existence of God.

From the article -
An enormous amoeba-like structure 200 light-years wide and made up of galaxies and large bubbles of gas is the largest known object in the universe, scientists say.

Then a couple of paragraphs later -
Some of the gas bubbles are up to 400,000 light years across, nearly twice the diameter of our neighboring Andromeda Galaxy.

Huh? So this enormous structure is 200 light years wide but contains gas bubbles that are up to 400,000 light years wide. Am I missing something here?

For $8, it's a steal. If they can deliver episodes like this and pricing is similar (about $10 retail a week or two after launch), I am a very happy guy.

Just curious where you found it for $8? I thought I had heard it was being sold at Circuit City for around $12 but when I check it out it was $20 same as online.
