commented on In Defense of Maureen Dowd Getting Too High and Writing About It
True story: I visited Seatlle w my wife and kids a few weeks ago and bought pot truffles. The dude told me to start with a corner and I did. Didn't feel much and went to bed an hour later. Next night I decided to try it again and just finished the rest of it. I was so fucked up I could barely move (that is, after I woke up the next day at nearly noon). Couldn't do anything but get up to puke repeatedly and then crawl back into bed. I was cold but couldn't gather the gumption to get a sweatshirt. This lasted the whole day. My wife had to take the kids out to do stuff without me. Thank God we weren't flying back til the day after that. So, yeah, it happens and some dosing info would be helpful.

@8 - Religious organizations have an exemption, even from federally protected classes. A private business cannot discriminate by race, for example, but churches can. It's why churches can decide not to marry two people of different races, if they choose, or of different religions (which is much more common). It's also why churches will never be forced to marry to partners of the same sex, even if gay marriage was legal nationwide.

commented on SL Letter of the Day: Two Butt Plugs
And while you're at it, SAP, why not an IUD or something? If you're only using condoms for birth control when you think she's fertile (and it sounds like that's the only form of birth control you're using), why not be extra cautious?
[this has nothing to do w/ the butt plug, obviously; I'm stuck on the birth control only part of the time thing]
