Happy 420! (in Off-topic)

Yay!

Yep, sure is...

TheHatchetman April 20 2009 11:10 AM EDT

Eliminate every day that has had something bad occur on it, and we've got 0 days left to be happy about... Viva La 420!

QBRanger April 20 2009 11:21 AM EDT

I have no idea how you get Columbine with 420.

I thought 420 was in reference to this:

AKA: the 10th worst contestant.

QBJohnnywas April 20 2009 11:21 AM EDT

You have to be smoking some good stuff to think Hitler's birthday is a good day.

''Eliminate every day that has had something bad occur on it, and we've got 0 days left to be happy about... Viva La 420!''

Amen, Hatch.

Happy Holidays dudes :)

{CB1}Sparticus [Screwed Justice] April 20 2009 1:24 PM EDT

If we chose to mourn for those who died in tragic circumstances we would be mourning every minute of every day. I would rather be happy.

I believe every day is 420,because for me, it is. (Happy happy joy joy)

Messbrutal April 20 2009 1:30 PM EDT

Have a great 420 guys, didn't enjoy some in about 5 weeks but it's good to be back again for the day.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 20 2009 1:33 PM EDT

I'm with the happy people, Happy 4/20.

I'm pretty sure columbine DID happen on 4/20 due to the direct correlation of it being 4/20. I don't remember. Too lazy to google.

Thak April 20 2009 1:52 PM EDT

Every theory posted on 420 answered there
I love how most of them still stick around.

See: Thak's link

Soxjr April 20 2009 2:29 PM EDT

Now, not to be a stick in the mud or anything, but I know as a chat-op I'm supposed to kick people from chat for discussing drugs and such but yet we have a thread completely about the topic. Everyone knows what this topic is about and the link posted above proves that. I would like to know that if this is allowed in forums then I would guess it's allowed in chat. I just need to know.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 20 2009 2:41 PM EDT

*shrug* I don't know, but I do know it's a happy day with or without this thread :)

Soul Eater April 20 2009 2:43 PM EDT

Drug's are bad. Please close this thread someone.

QBJohnnywas April 20 2009 2:46 PM EDT

"Drug's are bad."

Arguable. And personally, discussing drugs I find about as dangerous as discussing religion and politics.

Soxjr April 20 2009 2:47 PM EDT

I agree JW. I am not saying I think it should be closed or not, I'm just trying to see if I have been correct in how I am interpreting the chat rules and stuff.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 20 2009 2:53 PM EDT

Well I started a thread with close to a 100 replies in it that had Marijuana in the title.

I don't think marijuana is a non-pg topic as long as it's not people advocating it, or trying to get other people to try it.

To some people it's a medical treatment, and you wouldn't go trigger happy on someone talking about Tylenol now would you?

So calm down a little bit and enjoy the day =).

happy 420 (=^p) drugs are bad umkay

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 20 2009 3:29 PM EDT

I've been using my vaporizer today. Awesome stuff.

MissingNo April 20 2009 4:04 PM EDT

A vaporizer gives a weird high. I don't enjoy it as much.

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 20 2009 4:06 PM EDT

Vaporizer is straight up THC, a regular high has all the other chemicals.

Bull3t F4c3 April 20 2009 4:09 PM EDT

hahahah yeahhhhhh

MissingNo April 20 2009 4:11 PM EDT

No. It's definitely a different high. I know the theory behind a vaporizer, I also know I've smoked out of a vaporizer plenty of times and it's a much, much, more clear-headed high. Which I'm not particularly fond of.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 20 2009 4:12 PM EDT

This conversation is rather... *ahem*...

Goodfish April 20 2009 4:14 PM EDT

Illegal? Stupid? Yes.

Hope you don't mind me finishing your sentence, Marl. ;)

Colonel Custard April 20 2009 4:14 PM EDT

"Now, let's focus our discussion first on mary-jew-waw-nuh. Uh, mary-jew-waw-nuh's bad, and it also has a very distinct smell, mmmkay. I'm gonna pass around a little tiny bit, and you all can take a smell, so that you can know if someone is smoking mary-jew-waw-nuh near you, mmmkay." -- Mr. Mackey

Chef: Children, I just wanna tell you that drugs are bad.
Stan: We know, we know; that's what everybody says.
Chef: Right. But do you know why they're bad?
Kyle: Because they're an addictive solution to a greater problem-causing disease of both body and mind with consequences far outweighing their supposed benefits.
Chef: And do you have any idea what that means?
Kyle: No
Cartman: I know, I know! Drugs are bad because if you do drugs, you're a hippie, and hippies suck.
Chef: Look, children, this is all I'm gonna say about drugs... There's a time and a place for everything, and it's called college.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 20 2009 4:15 PM EDT

"Illegal?"

Depends on where you live.

Goodfish April 20 2009 4:25 PM EDT

The general "rule" on the internet seems to be that wherever the site is hosted (in this case, the US), the forums abide by the laws of that nation.

I have no doubt that some users play in areas where smoking pot is legal. Luckily, CB is a US-based game, so to me it's common sense that we just abide by the rules of the nation CB is based in.

Colonel Custard April 20 2009 4:41 PM EDT

"The general "rule" on the internet seems to be that wherever the site is hosted (in this case, the US), the forums abide by the laws of that nation."
I assume you're referring to Free Speech?

Thak April 20 2009 4:42 PM EDT

gotta love how threads take a turn.

I see it as no one is saying do it or that it is a good thing to do.
but just as a simple conversation. Doesnt matter if it is illegal to consume were you live you are aloud to talk about it anywhere regardless of law.

drugs were around forever and always will in one form or another such as murder and crime.

Until we develop a stess free society people will always indulge in some sorta vise.

Pwned April 20 2009 4:44 PM EDT

lol nice

Thak April 20 2009 4:45 PM EDT

And if you real want to get down to it a drug is something ingested that cause a chemical reaction in your body.
So technically food is a drug. so we shouldnt talke about food either?

Cube April 20 2009 4:45 PM EDT

Conversations (for the most part) aren't illegal if you are talking about United States law.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 20 2009 6:01 PM EDT

Can we move past the drama? Please? Go back to your bible threads.

The only anti-pot argument I've EVER heard was that "OMGBBQSAUCE IT'S ILLEGAL!!! IT'S A DRUG!!! PRAISE JESUS!!!"

Ever been to Mendeceno County in California? (Google "Emerald Triangle") Recently there was a CNBC (or whatever CNN's parent company is or whatever)

Anyways a CNN documentary on the area shows that pot and pot related business accounts for over 60% of the entire county's economy. Youtube it or something, and become a little more informed as to the "Legality in the U.S"

Is it illegal in some places? Yes. Is it illegal all places? No.

Ever hear of prohibition? Google it.

Most jesus freaks and do gooders (that I've encountered) lump marijuana in the same group as heroin and heavy narcotics. I don't know if this is just ignorance, a blind eye, or stupidity. I would assume ignorance. It's like 30 years ago when people thought smoking marijuana would kill you, and all these other adverse effects. ZzZz Wrong!

According to the CDC there are over 440,000 tobacco related deaths per year, which accounts for over $92 Billion in "Lost Productivity Annually." (The number might be higher as the report I'm looking at is from like 2006 I think)

Drinking and driving causes over 25,000 deaths a year. overall 100,000 deaths occur each year due to the effects of alcohol. Correction: According to the NHTSA web site (nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/pdf/nrd-30/NCSA/RNotes/2006/810686.pdf), there were 43,443 alcohol related traffic fatalities in 2005 in the USA. As a comparison, AIDS claimed 18,000 lives in 2003.

How can alcohol be blamed for 100,000 deaths each year?
* 5% of all deaths from diseases of the circulatory system are attributed to alcohol.
* 15% of all deaths from diseases of the respiratory system are attributed to alcohol.
* 30% of all deaths from accidents caused by fire and flames are attributed to alcohol.
* 30% of all accidental drownings are attributed to alcohol.
* 30% of all suicides are attributed to alcohol.
* 40% of all deaths due to accidental falls are attributed to alcohol.
* 45% of all deaths in automobile accidents are attributed to alcohol.
* 60% of all homicides are attributed to alcohol.


(Sources: NIDA Report, the Scientific American and Addiction Research Foundation of Ontario.) Also see Alcohol Consumption and Mortality, Alcohol poisoning deaths, CDC report.

100,000 deaths. That's more than a statistic. That is 100,000 individuals with faces. 100,000 individuals with lives not fully lived. 100,000 individuals grieved by mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and children. Every year.

=====================================================================

How much damage has Marijuana done? Ever? To my knowledge there has NEVER been a single documented fatality from Marijuana directly... Ever...

Not one.

Hmm... Numbers rarely lie. So while I'm not saying go start doing marijuana, I am saying as soon as you start judging people who smoke marijuana (for medical OR recreational use), you have fallen into the category of ignorant.

So go read your bible, high five your pastor, smoke your tobacco, and drink your good drink; just don't CM me about how bad of an evil drug marijuana is, because you have no argument whatsoever that will hold ANY ground.

GG

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 20 2009 6:03 PM EDT

Sorry had to rant, high blood pressure and all.

Anyways, completely derailed topic.

Lets get back on topic.

Happy 4/20!


QBOddBird April 20 2009 6:10 PM EDT

Did you really have to pull that "let's insult the Christian section of the game and get a fight started" move? -.-

Happy 420 guys!


And Sox, from what I understand, we don't discuss stuff like how to obtain drugs and usage and such, but just mentioning it or the topic coming up isn't what's disallowed. But no "this is how you make meth, kids!' kind of convos.

{CB1}Sparticus [Screwed Justice] April 20 2009 6:23 PM EDT

OK good fish, That was a very brainwashed thing to say. If we had all thought like the U.S. would still be governed/owned by england.

Viva la resistance.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] April 20 2009 6:28 PM EDT

Here is a short guide on how to use this thread.

Step 1: Determine if (either by the name of the thread or it's first post) this present thread offends you.

Step 2: If your answer to 1 was: ''Yes I am offended'' then ignore this thread and skip to Step 4.
If not, go to step 3.

Step 3: Bid everyone a good 4/20

Step 4: Quit thread, go on with your day.

Not hard, right?

{CB1}Sparticus [Screwed Justice] April 20 2009 6:29 PM EDT

GoodFish: "hello mr. taxman"
Taxman: "well there was a mistake on your taxes and we now require 50% of your money"
GoodFish: " here ya go."

__thus begins the long slow decent into slavery because people like goodfish followed the rules___

Viva la resistance.

{CB1}Sparticus [Screwed Justice] April 20 2009 6:30 PM EDT

oh forgot, Happy 4/20 again. :)

Canibus April 20 2009 6:32 PM EDT

Well in Norway the 4/20 theories crack, because that would mean the 4th day in the 20th month.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 20 2009 8:59 PM EDT

:) Got some entertaining CMs! Love this community :)

OB, sorry after rereading it and responding to several chatmails, I realize how anti religion that came across, and it wasn't intended that way.

I hold nothing against anyone of any religion, I believe that each person has the right to believe whatever they want.

I just find that 9 out of every 10 people (mostly in RL) who want to argue potitics (new word I just made up, deal with it) are on the extreme bible beater side of things. It's one thing to be a man/women of faith, it's another to be a freak who memorizes every page and goes around openly judging others, and trying to convert every single person to their way of thinking.

So maybe I could have been less aggressive at people of faith as a whole, but in aftermath just know that I most likely wasn't directing that at you or anyone in CB in general as I don't think we have any of these people in the community.

(The kind of people that go to soldiers funerals with signs about how the dead soldier is going to hell)

Anyways I have to go to dinner, good day everyone! Just know those who took this topic to chat mail, you're the reason I love this community so much.

Rawr April 20 2009 9:31 PM EDT

"How much damage has Marijuana done? Ever? To my knowledge there has NEVER been a single documented fatality from Marijuana directly... Ever..."

Sweet. Still not gonna do it. I like my brain.

Colonel Custard April 20 2009 10:34 PM EDT

Really, Jiraiya, there was quite a bit I could contest in that post you made. However, since you've retracted it, it makes it a lot easier for me to comment on the parts with which I do agree.

"Most jesus freaks and do gooders (that I've encountered) lump marijuana in the same group as heroin and heavy narcotics. I don't know if this is just ignorance, a blind eye, or stupidity. I would assume ignorance."
To be fair, all the "drug education" I've received (from the public school system in a blue state) puts it in the same light. "It's illegal. Why do you think it's illegal? Cuz it's bad. It will destroy your memory and lead you to try other drugs and get addicted and join gangs." It's ignorance, but it's government-inflicted ignorance.

{CB1}Sparticus [Screwed Justice] April 20 2009 10:46 PM EDT

agreed

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 20 2009 10:54 PM EDT

I agree with you Tamerlane, and I do genuinely apologize for my statement as every time I read it I wince, I didn't think that through and that's not how I meant it to come out.

Lets all just be happy and pretend that we are on an online forum where we can all talk about any topic with respect and maturity, and know that while we are amongst friends, it's perfectly fine to disagree from time to time.

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 20 2009 10:56 PM EDT

I've been smoking weed for 5 years now, and I've never tried another drug or joined a gang.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 20 2009 10:59 PM EDT

Unless I read it wrong, he was talking about how the state education teaches things, which are if you smoke weed you're going to either die, have a kid, join a gang, or do other harder drugs.

ZzZz It's a crock.

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 20 2009 11:00 PM EDT

I know, just thought it was a fun fact.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] April 20 2009 11:01 PM EDT

I love how every single thread turns into an argument lately.

Colonel Custard April 20 2009 11:22 PM EDT

Haha. My dad walked in while I was typing my last reply and asked to use the computer. He asked what I was typing, and I said it was the smallest argument we've had in recent weeks.

.... wait a minute.... what was my point again?

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 21 2009 5:43 AM EDT

What a good night.

Went down to a local coffee shop where they have an "open mic" night where a bunch of weirdo's read their poetry, which wasn't that cool, but there was a lot of local musicians tonight that played some really cool stuff, all for free. Everyone was eating yummy muffins and hanging out, then we all went down to the river and had a bonfire and roasted marsh mellows and celebrated 4/20 and had like a total hippy drum circle of sorts for awhile which was cool. (somewhere in between had an awesome dinner too)

So yah, hope everyone else had a good day!

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 21 2009 6:41 AM EDT

OpVines made me LoL. ;)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] April 21 2009 7:14 AM EDT

{Jiraiya}-Fame.Vr, the Streets have a very funny song based on Pot versus Booze. I can't remember it's name.

It starts with a Law abiding citizen, who likes to go out at the weekend, down 12 pints and fight people. And swaps next verse to a Pot smoking student who wants nothing more than to play computer games and eat pizza (without chicken).

But the first is a legal upstanding citizen, while the second is someone who should be jailed just for being.

The versus swap back and forth between the two, until the boozer tries to fight the student. ;)

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 21 2009 7:16 AM EDT

Sounds fun :) I'll have to youtube or try to find it elsewhere next time I'm in town (on a fast internet connection) 21k sucks. >_<

For the record, CB runs without a glitch on 21k. Which is soooo nice.

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 21 2009 4:39 PM EDT

Bumping... for Simply Nic :)

SimplyNic April 21 2009 4:47 PM EDT

......... -Veins in brain explode- ... -Takes deep relaxing and slow breaths-... I... Seriously.. Hate... Everyone... That finds this date to be so "Hey ho happy slappy joyful days!". Yes, I have personal reasons why. No, I will not go into them. Before I explode, I'm going to go and punch the couch for a couple of minutes. Yay for inanimate objects which I can hit without hurting myself or others!

And yes, I seriously hate this date that much. And honestly, I can go from liking someone to absolutely hating someone that says "Yay its 4-flipping-20! I'm gonna use this as an excuse to get myself high as all damned hell and hope that no one will care! And while in this process I'm going to ignore the word "consequence" and just go out and do whatever the hell I want! I'll be too high to remember what happens after that anyway."

So to all you "Hey ho its 4-flippin'-20 I'm gonna use this date as an excuse to get myself high as all damned hell", seriously... Refrain from talking to me whenever I'm online. I will NOT hesitate to speak my mind and hope that I don't get banned shortly there after.

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 21 2009 4:49 PM EDT

Wouldn't of mattered for me, I would of got high anyways. Though my friend quit for 4 months and 20 days. He became smoking weed again on 420 :)

"Wouldn't of mattered for me, I would of got high anyways. Though my friend quit for 4 months and 20 days. He became smoking weed again on 420 :)"

Oh okay then, I'll just go smoke a joint then.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 21 2009 6:10 PM EDT

Trolls are funny. MAn I'm depressed, a local headshop had a buy one get one free sale and I missed it :( My friend got like $600 worth of glass for like 320 or something.

Canibus April 21 2009 6:26 PM EDT

I used to smoke hash during my years in CB1, but now at the time of my comeback Ive been without for a decent period of time. I wouldnt mind a joint but im not actively seeking it, I prefer that to using $70-$100 a day to fund my habbit :) Thank god I have poker to fund that consumption.

it's no longer 4/20, can we let this thread die plz before it gets out of hand? Thanks.

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 21 2009 6:31 PM EDT

It's always 420 for regular stoners.

Lochnivar April 21 2009 6:38 PM EDT

I wonder why it is that people brag about being stoners but nobody seems to brag about being a drunk?

Incidentally, when talking to my brother I refered to 4/20 as St Paddy's day for stoners...


Oh, and deliberately baiting others in forums is not cool, regardless of who does it.

TheCakeIsTheTruth April 21 2009 9:49 PM EDT

If you want heres a downside to weed. I just came up with a brilliant idea, I knew it was fantastic (I dont use this word often).. and now I completely forgot. I can not absolutely remember. I'm gonna start writing this stuff down from now on.

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- April 21 2009 11:10 PM EDT

I do it sometimes too, but honestly my long term memory is soooooo stupidly vivid.

BadFish April 21 2009 11:50 PM EDT

Same thing here. My parents get freaked out by things I can remember with extreme detail from when I was like 4, completely random events with no meaning whatsoever. But then in the same day I'll try to start my car with my mom's house key.

Goodfish April 22 2009 12:09 AM EDT

Badfish, I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with pot. :P

j'bob April 22 2009 12:16 AM EDT

lol, this thread is still alive! w00t.
since the whole 4/20 day is indeed gone and now the stoners are gonna have to wait another year to high (giggle) five each other, let's get another equally embarrassing thread going regarding a "victimless" crime...
so what day can we celebrate prostitution?
