Random cartoon Ghost contest entries suddenly appearing
You guys should share these random thoughts in the cartoon contest thread. You might win a free vape.
I had a great midday dab session Saturday followed up with a beer outing with the kids. It amazes me how I am legally allowed to bring my 8, 6 and 2 year old into a brewery, which is just a bar that makes the beer it sells, and have a full beer whilst letting my kids run amuck (not really, we played 2 very competitve games of foosball which me and the 2 year old one by 1 point thanks to a last minute save and assist by a very smart 2 year old! We also played pinball and Duck Hunt on the OG NES) and then ordered a 64oz growler to go. The place was pretty busy with about 5 or 6 other kids there. Having 3 kids put me in the center of all of them at times with a far from full mug in hand I helped my kids and other kids play these games. When I walked out, other parents and adults sans children gave me reassuring looks as if to say what a good dad during my entire visit. No one batted an eye at the 64oz growler I proudly walked out with as my kids scattered around me in a race to our minivan that I was obviously going to drive. I mean the 8 year old probably could drive it...he mows with a gas pedal operated mower just fine but I am not sure the 5-0 would accept his Legoworld Drivers license. Maybe 30 years ago!
It was nice and I enjoyed it, but it also made me frustrated that I am that same person at home only with a dab rig in my hand instead and that's not legal. In fact in my state I am an outright felon if I get caught with concentrates and my kids get removed possibly from both parents even though their mom is a RN nurse whom does not partake ever. But she did want that growler...momma needs that yeast for nursing our 6 week old and its a really delicious shandy!
It also made me think, I could be even more active at home like I was at the bar if I had a more portable option at home instead of a tethered coil and dab rig setup that requires me to dip back into the garage every now and then. Perhaps a Puffco Peak may be in my near future...
Didn't think starting a thread was the way to go with this. But geez this seems like it's gonna be a big deal once these folks arrive.
As Migrant Caravan Winds North, Trump Vows To Cut Aid To Countries They're Fleeing
I've always considered outside interference (imperialism that goes way way back) to be the root of the problems of many Central American and South American countries (though not too many folks in positions that matter seem to agree). Maybe we could be ready for the pending arrival by identifying a few thousand job commitments for these folks and seeing them safely and successfully integrated? Just a random thought. The option doesn't appear to be something I want to witness.
Remember when photographs were special? And now they're just...data.
I agree. But you'd have to be pretty ignorant of history to disagree.
A number of the people in power right now are ignorant of a great many things, including history. Others are happy to use the plight of these refugees to score political points with racists. I'm thinking if 1,000 Norwegians were fleeing violence, we wouldn't be talking about deploying the military to stop them.
Not a bad idea. At the very least, we should stop calling them criminals. Refugees are not criminals. We should let them go through the asylum request process. I'd say America owes them that at the very least give that we've ratfucked Central America for over a century.
So an army of people who want a chance to mow my lawn or pick fruits and veggies as they climb the ladder of success are a threat to me?
Maybe Donald could take a page from Saint Reagan:
"Through this Golden Door has come millions of men and women. These families came here to work. Others came to America and often harrowing conditions. They didn’t ask what this country could do for them but what they could do to make this refuge the greatest home of freedom in history. They brought with them courage and the values of family, work, and freedom. Let us pledge to each other that we can make America great again."
I just had a weird thought. Don't ask me why, but I thought of a boy's bicycle. At some point all us girls as youngsters rode a boy's bike, & there's nothing like the smarting you feel when your crotch falls onto that bar. Why the hell are there bars on boy's bikes anyway?
I had a second thought, but I forgot.
Blue Dream in a nano at 7 thru water.
Yeah I've wondered why boy bikes face the crotch smasher bar, but girls are spared.
Blue Dream is very very nice indeed.
And why do boy's bikes have the "high bar"? For the "smarting feeling" x 100 when nuts meet the bar
Actually, having the top tube up high gives a much stronger structure (sort of a big triangle) VS having the
top tube low like a girl's bike which gives a much weaker structure from an engineering viewpoint.
So, risk crushing your crotch with a strong structure or go with a flexi frame and "save your crotch"
We could mod the bike, use silicone tubing for a cushion ...
Nope, damn, that won't work. Now silicone is in the crotch path. It will get stained and stinky
I wonder if the "step-through' nature of women's bikes was a "more modest" way to mount a bike. The design is way old.
Ever daydream your Boss's head.......
One time a coworker complained that management made her head feel filled up with air every time they talked with her. Hahahaha @macbill your exploding head makes me think of her expression, which I had never heard before...but it does make sense. Sometimes bosses be talkin' loud, not sayin' nothin'.
A person cannot do a good job at leading the nation if he or she lacks empathy towards others. That is one emotion that you cannot pretend to have. When you pretend empathy people see right through you. The leader comes across as fake and hollow.
Also trying to tell the truth is important as well. There will come a time that citizens are going to need to know the truth about something important. They will have their doubts because they have been lied to so much.
Shit, those sugar babies can pull a filling out lickity split.
Been listening to the political shows (on CNN and Fox) this weekend and my random thought is....
How about we attach wires to the genitals of the interviewer, politicians speaking on behalf of themselves and/or those speaking on behalf of their party. Each time one of the following occurs they get a shock and the power coming through those wires goes up a notch:
- Outright lying (includes leaving out facts that support opposing views)
- Not answering the question by using what-about-ism and false equivalency
- Making false promises
The only partisan aspect I'd allow for the above is whether red or blue wires are used.
After the first segment/interview there'd be way less folks available for the next ones. Not sure whether it would be because they would fear the pain or because the stench of burning genitals would be too much to take.
My money would be on the pain. I think these folks are hardened to the stench of burning flesh.
Just got done voting for my Medical in my state. Rooting hard for all the other states w/ MJ measures on the ballot today!
I'm voting for someone more friendly to the cause here in New York
Heard at the polling location "Keep the pressure on to turn blue"!! Response "Dude...Loosen your grip on it and the color will return".
I just wanted to say that every fucking day and night for the last several weeks I have been forced to watch those shitty goddamn ads on youtube for our state's congressman campaigns. Those lousy goddamn ads would play at the beginning and in the middle somewhere of every video I was trying to watch.
I did not vote for the democrat or the republican candidate for no other reason than spite and payback for having to watch their asshole ads over and over.
When is enough, enough? The gun violence in public venues is out of control here in the U.S. Its happening over and over again. 12 people died needlessly. We have too many crazies walking around. Also a lot of anger.
Perhaps we all need to step back and realize we have far more in common than that which divides us...........
