Using one problem to associate the fall of the USSR is pretty stupid.  Also, (laugh out loud), part of Reagan's strategy was  was to meet with the Saudis to get them to play into U.S. hands to help them collapse the USSR using oil. So how does your theory go now?  The Soviets fell due to a number of factors.  Debt, planning, socialism fails, political corruption, trying to play keep up in terms of military might.  Probably a number of other factors I'm missing as well.

gee can you tell us the reason mr.soviet specialist? the price of oil was a major problem for the ussr. by the way you know that saudi arabia is an ally of the usa just as much as israel. so it wouldn't be a surprise if there was a major CONSPIRACY behind it.

More glorious nonsense. 

Actually it was the Soviet People who wanted to be more like the US, not Gorbachev or Kruschev.  How you gonna keep on the farm once they've seen Paree?.

Wildly fluctuating oil prices controlled by Saudi Arabia.  Nothing whatsoever to do with buyers and such.  And just when did SA become chums with the US keeping oil prices low for our benefit.  I seem to recall that they did quite the opposite as part of a group known as OPEC.  They didn't quite get so palsy walsy with the US until they needed us just a bit to keep Saddam out of their kitchen.  At any rate, that is hardly enough to bring down the mighty Soviet.  Hell, they were so huge they shouldn't have needed any trade at all.  Keep it all home, Komrade..

Despite the unpopularity of what he says he is 100% correct.  Unless you want a career as a clerk in a headshop it would behoove you to pretend to be a square.  And smoking reefer regularly will not do you any good no matter what your spirit animal tells you in the middle of the night.

For the life of me I can't understand the appeal, beyond social approval, of marijuana.  It's a shitty high, it produces a tell tale smell and makes users boring (except to other users discussing the arcana of various strains of mediocre highs).  It really is a limp dick drug.  This is, after all, The Shroomery, and not the Whimpery.

Pretty much everyone i know who smokes weed on a regular basis hardly resembles a "SHIT FACED DOPE FIEND PEOPLE WON'T HIRE"

and i know many a pot head.

perhaps you've mistaken this with alcoholics/crack heads/actual dope fiends?


meh

that is one bold ass statement dude.:confused:

i personally know someone who is at the top of the food chain with Rolls Royce(the jet engine division) and he not only smokes religiously every day but also grows some of the best dank i've personally had the privilege to taste. He makes well over 200k a year and seems to be as unhindered by his personal preferences as they come. so yeah, nt tho.

if that's a prime example of career retardation by means of smoking pot, then please, wipe my ass and call me "short bus", because i totally fucking aspire to this "retarded" lifestyle. derp derp.

<3


edit: i wonder, what kind of weed have you tried if you think the high is so shitty? yeah sure, there is some shitty weed out there, plenty of it, but there is also some wonderfully potent smoke that will wreck your ass if your aren't careful. Also, What substances, if any, do you consider lacking of this shitty quality?

Does it really matter?  Some people don't like to be high.  Some people don't like to be drunk.  Why should everybody have to enjoy what you enjoy?  As long as nobody is restricting what you can do to yourself, you shouldn't really care.  Zappa is anti-prohibition.  Beyond that, does it matter if he enjoys or dislikes using drugs?

Sorry but I've smoked since I was 13. I'll be 53 this month. I have all the worldly goods a man (or several) could hope for. I pay more in taxes each year than most people make in 3 years. That's not my idea of a retarded career.

yes, for someone to know what a shitty high is, then they must have something on the opposite side of the spectrum to compare that experience with. i was only curious as to what he deems a quality buzz.

This is, after all, the Shroomery.:cool:  Plus pretty much everything else. 
To everybody who posted that there are people who smoke pot and aren't total losers you missed a key word.  "Regularly".  And by that I mean every day.  If you smoke pot every day and have somehow managed not to be fucked up, you are the exception.  I do not know one single person who smokes a lot of pot who has ever amounted to anything and I know a lot of people who smoke a lot of pot.

And it's a wimpy drug, for sure.  I have smoked some top notch dope and thought, yeah, yipee, big fucking deal.  If you're going to get high, get high and make an occasion out of it.  It shouldn't be a casual daily routine.

And it's close enough to daily that there's little difference. I just handle it well.

By "handle it" I am of course referring to my pot usage and my cock.


Yup...... 14 lbs of swinging beef.

Or is that grams? I always get the two mixed up!
