    low EQ/IQ's perhaps, I saw on reddit a month ago some knucklehead was asking about differences between smoking and vaping in his dog's face asking redditor's which is safer?!:doh::goon: subsequently after a handful of us responsible pet owners chewed him out he deleted his post. beyond me summer?

    This can be the place I put some thoughts when I wake up in the middle of the night and get blitzed with an Elev8r bowl followed by 2 Toasty Top shots. Holy shit, I was watching an infomercial on my computer! By choice! WTF I almost finished it, too. The guys voice was so smooth.

    Yo, I'ma go watch some Jessica Jones. Then go to beeeeeeed again.

    I had more thoughts, but they weren't even worth sharing. Bleep boop.

    Latest update on the kid... The latest headline from the Daily Mail
    'Riot police guard courtroom as Alfie Evans' parents launch new legal bid to fly him to Italy for treatment with toddler still breathing unaided almost a DAY after his life support was withdrawn and helicopter on standby'

    'Doctors have been left 'gobsmacked' after Alfie's life-support was withdrawn but he continued to live, his father Tom (inset today) has said'. (Daily Mail)

    Yeah that's right, doctors are gobsmacked! WTF?:uhh:


    In light of the above, my random thought is (whilst 'rhetorically' reminiscing);
    Remember back when you use to actually believe that doctors actually made you well and hospitals were places where you went to get healed?:myday:

    Yeah Right :mental:

    Just my :2c:'s worth!

    @Summer, I have to confess in the past (way back when) I subjected my dog to weed smoke, but to be fair, I wasn't holding him down or anything even remotely like that, I just use to blow some exhale his way and he actually seemed to like it, well that was the impression he gave me or I would not have done so....

    I do blow my vape on to our cats, one of them has been getting it daily for the last five years or so and she is very healthy - not one day at the vets since we've had her and that's going on five years now..

    But whereas I am neutral on 'actual' weed vapor being blown onto pets, I gotta say, using my critical faculties, that I would be against any 'combusted' smoke, (even cannabis smoke) being blown onto pets, and, I would also be against any type of e-cigarette vapor being used on pets...

    Pure Peace:leaf:

    @Helios I just watched the finale. It was an interesting season. I wasn't as drawn to the central struggle in the season, but I enjoyed it. No clear cut villain in this season, which is interesting.

    Yeah, I liked the theme of going over the edge, too. The themes were very dark. It's a great series. I think maybe I just wanted a bigger climax. I don't really have anything to complain about otherwise. The first season had such a big climax.

    Listening to some new Sonic Youth, apparently? It was suggested today that I represent the students to the board of trustees at my community college. Ha!

    Man I've been all over the place lately. I've been angling for a job in retail cannabis, and it's been tough. Old white guys aren't exactly a hot commodity these days, and these jobs are very competitive. But it's an ideal 'twilight career' for me, something I have a passion for, and it's relatively low in physical/mental stress. It goes without saying that I will enjoy my employee discount, for the only job I want to do in the service industry. Not to mention it's a growth industry, in a state currently struggling with a recession.

    I really thought I had sabotaged this opportunity right after the guy told me the job was probably mine, as I am also experiencing a bunch of insecurities from some recent drama concerning my medical condition. My doc has been after me to get a job or get the most horrible surgery imaginable, and the surgery would put me on my back for at least six months so these are confusingly exclusive goals. My dream job would be as a part-time budtender; but I really need to work and this position requires a commitment to be the night manager, closing late 5 days a week. I have doubts about my medical condition & resulting stamina.

    Basically my subconscious is in a panic, as I am awaiting an interpretation of medical test results and maybe a consultation with an infectious disease specialist as well as the surgeon. During the job interview I told them I wrote what could be interpreted an an anti-dispensary article, it came out the day after. Then at the end of the job interview I felt that I may have thrown some shade at another employee there, that I hadn't even met yet, and I felt horrible. I called the boss and left a happy 420 message that I felt may have made things worse. How easily the thoughts in my fucking head get out of control when I'm sick!

    So today I was thinking about calling the guy and formerly withdrawing my candidacy for the position, as I was under the impression that I had self-destructed and wanted to salvage what I could. The guy then calls my phone, it rings once and that's it no message. I was thinking that he was just calling to advise me that he went in another direction, and was about to call him back. Then the ups guy came and delivered the new work shoes that I ordered from amazon; they're like the best shoes I can imagine for this job and my volunteer gig as well, which is another source of stress atm but I'll stay away from that for now.

    Then the phone rings again and it's my new boss, telling me I have the position if I want it. I went into what I had been concerned about with him (not the medical stuff but the shade-throwing, & the newspaper article about thc testing inaccuracies), turns out I hadn't self-destructed at all and I start on Monday. I can't wait, will be living like a monk to try and stay healthy enough to make it through the season at least, and take it from there. No more sugar at all, eat fermented foods & keep starches & fats to a minimum.

    I've been booze and ice-cream free lately anyways. I'm thinking it's the end of the line for those two items.

    So after I make a batch of kimchee over the weekend, I start Monday morning! It should be great if I can stay healthy, I know I feel very appreciative for the opportunity and will definitely have their backs.

    Big thanks to the FC community, I've learned a lot from the good folks here & I'm sure it helped :tup:

    :cheers:

    Soooo.... does that employee discount include friends and family? :brow:

    Kidding, congrats on the new role bud. Hope it helps you with your health, sometimes a new role can bring a new routine that actually improves one's health.

    Good luck and don't forget to enjoy a triumphant bowl tonight to celebrate :D

    grokit, hope it all works out for you.

    On an unrelated note, there’s a dumpy little deli down the road from the house. Only go there for bare necessities when the option (supermarket a few more miles down the road) is deemed unlikely to provide a worthwhile roi.

    Walk in a few days ago for eggs needed to do a last minute flan and lo and behold half the place is converted into a 6 & 12 pack micro brew (by and large) center.

    To many of you this is not random. But this is PA. Where for centuries beer was bought by the case (= 24 12 oz. bottles or cans) at ‘beverage centers.’ Things started to change a couple of years ago when larger grocery stores like wegmans were allowed to sell 12 packs of beer. Then it mushroomed to where I can go into a deli and pick up a twelve pack of my favorite beverage at the same time I pick up some eggs. Some would call that civilized. Just Like it’s been in other places I’ve lived since way back when.

    I had a random thought earlier today walking down my block after leaving work: I completely forgot to go to class today. Shit. How the fuck did THAT happen?

    To make it worse, previous class I had confirmed with the professor that after giving my final presentation & submitting all work that I was finished with all classwork. She said I still should come to class to support my classmates presentations & I told her I'm not the type to blow off a class. So much happening right now that once I got going at work I didn't even think of the class until 6 hours later. Oops.

    I think one of the most important points in making a truly great milkshake is to remember that your adding some milk to your ice cream, not some ice cream to your milk. :sherlock:

    If you made a hand-held vape with a likeness of Putin on it you could call it Vlad the Inhaler.

    When logic and proportion...

    I don't get why more people don't understand things logically!
    I mean I can explain it to you but I cannot understand it for you!
    They say the scientists saw laser beams from space recently, hopefully they can explain the pyramids for once and for all! Maybe even enlighten us to Atlantis!

    Don't get me started on proportions...

    Quick update on the shrooms situation;

    Went to harvest them and got a shock, at the amount of shrooms, and how big they were,:o
    the biggest were about 5inch in diameter, and these beauties are extremely potent, could tell that by the way the mycelium went a 'greenish' blue (as opposed to ink blue) as soon as you cut them, which is known to be a sign of potency, (from experience)! However, I try to minimize contact as that 'blue' is not only a sign of potency, its also a sign of psilocybin degradation.:\

    So its a case as to when 'get away', well dosage wise, given the freshness, (currently stored in frost free freezer) I'm thinking maybe 30g (fresh) with a maximum of 50g, (fresh). Which should ensure a deep trip, but you gotta prepare for those kinda trips, you just can't go running into 'that' like a its a joke thing, cos trust me when I say entheogenic experiences are certainly not to be taken lightly.... So you got to exercise the due respect when using such powerful tools, cos these 'things' will hurt you and hurt you 'good' if you mess about or abuse them.:goon:

    (Anyway responsible disclaimer out of the way),

    I got my 'Trippables' more or less together now, got some hash, its kinda nice hash, really fluffy and it melts with the heat of your fingertips (nice):drool:... Also got a 'brownie' to go with that and also, soon will have the staple, i.e., Chemdawg/white widow, to round off what is gonna be a great trip.:rockon: Oh I nearly forgot, I have also got some Alien Truffle - which according to the blurb, is just as strong as the shrooms, only things, its in truffle form, so its all good, and soon its check, check and check, and I'll be saying bye bye to Kansas....:whoa:

    Just got to detox first and then see you all when I get back.....

    Oh, better make sure I got some juice and something sweet just in case I need to come back -quickly!:ugh:


    Pure piece.....:leaf:
