I hate the fact that someone can even try to get the rights on a fuckin number. My god is our society whacky when people are buying up catch phrases like they were 10 strips of blotter. Oh Discordia.

" Albert Hofmann took the first deliberate LSD trip at 4:20 on 19 April 1943.

This was indeed the case -- his lab notes back this up. But this wasn't the source of "420," just an oddball coincidence. (For the pedants out there, Hofmann's first LSD trip, which was accidental, took place on 16 April 1943.) "

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."

i was always told it was the cop code ( i suppose most people were then eh?)

yeah, copywriting "420" is completely insane

so, if in a flick, a person said "i need me some OJ (orange juice)" would they have to pay royalties and shit?
