commented on Straining to Care About Strains
I've noticed that, with the rise of all these colorfully-named strains, there has been a proportional decline in slang words for the herb itself.
I hate the word "cannabis," as it seems like the most sterile, inoffensive way to market the plant to nervous conservatives. It's the equivalent of using words like "penis" or "intercourse"- not sexy.
Gimme some ganja, some buddha, herb, gear, or good shit. Let me know if it's indica, sativa, or hybrid. Post the percentages of various cannabinoids, and no one will care what it's called.
In fact, I just learned that potency can vary quite a bit, even between plants that are the same strain, so the names truly are meaningless.

I had a cyclist co-worker, great guy, but he did frequently tell stories of confrontation with drivers, and seemed to enjoy telling those stories.
commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: The Constant Question
I think everyone is being unduly harsh on the LW. They've been married for 15 years, it's not like he just got bored all of a sudden. Presumably he DOES care about his wife's feelings, or I'd be surprised they lasted that long.
Also, his horniness sounds really, really extreme. Is it possible that her hormone imbalance is having an effect on his libido (and his emotions)?

commented on Private Schools Are Not the Solution
School shootings seem to happen overwhelmingly in public schools, which is a pretty strong argument for sending your kid to private school if you can, social implications be damned.
