commented on It's Official: Trump Voters Were Duped by Putin
Here's what I don't get about these allegations-- both candidates (in any election) wield tremendous resources in an effort to disparage their opponent and sway voters, often by lying. Even if Putin tried to help Trump, short of hacking the voting machines themselves, I don't see how Russian-peddled bullshit would sway voters more than GOP-peddled bullshit already does.

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.
