#36 - That makes me sad, Fnarf. I still think of you as my brother. After all, we're all related. And I'd really like to be your friend. Maybe I'll even start cheering for your posts the way Pope Peabrain does.

And with that, I'm done here (on this thread, I mean). You all entertain yourselves without me for a while.

#30 - Fnarf, thank you for those kind words. Rest assured I will do whatever I can to continue to facilitate the healing. I've never liked much of your commentary here on SLOG, but I am proud to call you my friend and brother.

And just FYI, I would never deface a statue. I'm not one of the "graffiti artists" La Graves is always salivating over.

Aw, you guys! I'm touched, really, that you've expressed so much interest in little old me. Apparently I've touched a nerve with La Graves. But don't get too worked up, OK?

If it makes you feel better, I'm not nearly as racist as some of my posts make me out to be. Maybe it will ease your wounded hearts to know that I voted for Obama twice? That I'm very much pro-gay rights? That I think The Wire is a masterpiece? No?

Jenny, you're my least favorite slog writer for a lot of reasons. Your obsession with Africans isn't even in the top ten. So feel better, sweetie.

Fnarf, you're not going to believe this, but I've never even seen "Birth of a Nation". Is it worth a rental?

You folks take care, and again, thanks for this award. I'll see you soon.

#17 - and thank YOU for your substantive contribution to the thread! Anything else to add?

#13 - I know you declare yourself a "science nerd", but that seems frankly ridiculous. "Anything that disrupts a body's natural physiology"?? You sound like the goofy chick in the video, or a scientologist maybe. You could literally include almost any substance in that definition.

My handy Webster's dictionary defines a poison as a substance that causes injury or death upon ingestion, contact, or injection. I would suggest that that is the definition most people have in mind when they think of poison. Since psilocybin does not cause injury or death, I would not characterize it as poison. (Yes, I'm sure there's a level at which overdose could occur, and again, you could say that about almost anything, including water.)

#7 - psilocybin mushrooms are not "poisonous" in any meaningful sense of the word. People have "hallucinations" because it's a psychoactive substance, not because it's poisonous.

Yeah, yeah, we get it, you love Africans. Find a new subject, already.

#23 - Europe may have been "95% white" a few decades ago, but they, like us, are slowly but surely turning brown. Unfettered immigration from Africa and the Middle East, combined with low white birth rates and a crippling sense of white guilt, are conspiring to make the whole world shit-colored. No offense.

#8 - nobody is "classifying an entire race as illegal", just the ones that came here illegally. I know, it's an incredibly difficult concept to grasp. Much easier to cry...(yawn).."racism". Again. And again. And again.....
