One thing i can add now that it's no longer going to cost anyone their job even if people figure out who I'm talking about (passed away/cancer)
I've smoked pot with a jduge, lawyers, medical doctors, professors, and even LEO.. in a state where it's not even medical.
4/20 will always have some meaning, but it's getting to the point of almost stupid because it just opens the door for people to make a mockery of it --- though I see less and less people willing to make a mockery of it every year.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I think high school is the||
I think high school is the worst time to do it... as someone with experiences of quitting it during that period because it wasn't a productive thing... It was just something we did to get more fucked up because that's what kids do.
Anymore, as someone who looks at their responsibilities above all, as someone who had to go back to Toledo to finish undergrad after a really weird decade of getting involved with a bunch of small businesses... It has helped me a lot. I live on my own, own my house, have to make everything work to be productive in life while padding a transcript for another year.. and i've managed to use it more responsibly now. It's something to think, relax, socialize, etc. I'm still sitting on a 3.9x, have good relationship with the chairs in the depts I'm in (i do env sci. with concentration on great lakes, political science, and a history minor based mostlly on midieval/late egyptian times). I wanted to be able to work on our phosphorous issues, but still want to be able to get into at least a decent law school (my lsats are close to being where i want them to be..... everything else is really good so far)
You also learn how many people that are instructing you are definetly are or probably are smoking the shit as well, because it just becomes obvious as you talk to them more or work with them on projects.
Another thing I'm tired of
I'm tired of watching great athletes on both NCAA and professional levels losing their careers over fucking pot. It's stupid.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I had a hotel last time i was||
I had a hotel last time i was up in A2. My taxi driver brought some really good stuff (girlscout cookie) only marked up like 10% above dispensary rates.
I bought a pizza that same night, the driver got to our room at 4:20am and joined in for a second, then left his number and said he'd be happy to hook us up whenever we're in town.
I was impressed with the business sense of all the service workers in the area :)
|2 weeks 1 day ago||For people who don't get||
For people who don't get it
710 ... just like the oil cap on your car, upside down
the kids love their extracts. I'm afraid of some of that stuff getting cracked down on. I've been really really blitzed on some of the oil/wax that goes around... Edibles are what kind of "scares" me as someone who wants pot to not be fucked with during legalization.
Yeah, you can make a small edible that will really make you trip fucking balls, and if it's not extracted right (burn off all the cbd, cbn, etc... your'e left with thc thca) .... it can be a really paranoid and confusing "trip."
People really need to practice caution when making and consuimg edibles. Most of them are prettty damn mild IMO, but I had a giant brownie once that floored me for the better part of 12 hours a while back.. I couldn't find a way to make it even comfortable, and i'm experienced with everything up to heavy doses of DMT these days. It's idiot teenage kids giving powerful edibles to their "friends" to fuck with them that scares me about a crackdown on edibles. (and pot in general)
|2 weeks 1 day ago||I used to "hate" it, would||
I used to "hate" it, would make me anxious, unable to function, etc. Through most of my 20's I didn't really get down on it much. I still argued that for the people who liked it and were productive on it, it seemed fine and the science was there already that it's relatively harmless
Now... I think it's great. I can relax on it, it's helped me stay away from booze, it's increased creative thought processes. I've learned that if I do smoke "too much" i lose a little bit of critical thinking skills like a hangover for a little bit (less than 24 hours) .. but i'm talking like smoking snoop dog amounts of pot out of nowhere.
I can say I'm glad my own mind got to a point where I feel like going out to a bar and socializing while smoking good herb instead of pounding boubon on ice sounds more fun. I feel healthier as a person, I think it should be legal everywhere, and I hope that in this transition from small time to big time that the small time growers who have made all these crazy strains over the years don't get run over by a truckload of money.
I really used to think it was a drug for do nothing losers, now I feel like an idiot for ever thinking that.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Kasich wouldn't even give us||
Kasich wouldn't even give us funding to clean up the maumee watershed before the Toledo water crisis, kept blaming it on Detroit -- when the data is absolutely clear. The problem is farm runoff. (Not the fault of farmers, the fault of our whole idea on how to produce "food")
I hated seeing this news on Buckeye Lake.. Regardless of location and bias against the word "buckeye," there's a music venue right there that's been pretty special to me. The Dead played there a couple times in the early-mid 90's, and it's been a staple for most of my summer weekend getaways during music festival seasons for countless years.
It's a bummer, but nobody wants to maintain a fucking thing, and asking the lowest bidder to "build it to last" has some hilarity to it.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Amazing on how grown ass men||
Amazing on how grown ass men are so quick to judge a 17 year old kid with serious nfl aspirations for choosing to work with a Rb coach he has experience with, and one who has developed some really damn good backs lately..... Including one that just whooped on bama and Oregon to win the first ncaa playoff.
I'm not going to judge him for going to what logically looked like the best option for his future at the time, especially when it was based on a lie. You don't think his hs coaches ands parents weren't trying to push him in that direction? Even they feel betrayed. Imagine how This KID feels.
We shouldn't necessarily be rolling out a red carpet, but we should show him what integrity means by understanding and offering true mentorship that won't shit on him.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||I live in Toledo. It's been||
I live in Toledo. It's been pretty shit over the years, swore I would never move back here.
Best part is that i bought a decent little place last year for dirt cheap with cash in a pretty quiet neighborhood and don't have to worry much about living expenses. Finishing up some school related stuff here before another transfer.
Night life? Downtown is on the up, slowly.. the area around UT isn't good at all for walking around. I tend to go to the places with the most taps. Some good jazz bars. It's just not a very friendly town for walking around in unless you're downtown.
Pretty much west toledo and downtown are the only things left that are decent, but my property value increased drastically over the course of the past 1.5 years without considering any work done to it, so I can't complain.
Depends where I transfer again after next year, hopefully back up north. I know in A2 I'd be paying the same price on leasing a dump for a year that my place here was to just pay off. (and i don't have to deal with anyone that's not invited over) That combined with being involved with our "lake issues" got me to move back here for a bit.
I've lived in dozens of places in every corner of this country over the past decade, and spend most summers on the road. When it really comes down to it, I always hated the shit out of this city, but 99% of the rest of the country doesn't seem any more attractive to me. I'm fine being here and knowing that a trip to DTW can take me anywhere I want to go in a couple hours.
This could just be because I have roots/connections here, and know plenty of people who I enjoy the company of.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I'd rather they just stopped||
I'd rather they just stopped testing for pot altogether.
It's sad when I've smoked with professors, attorneys, LEO's, and judges, but if you're in NCAA football... Nope, we're taking away your career.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I got in on it kinda helped||
I got in on it
kinda helped a bit, a lot more than losing 250 would have hurt. I had enough faith at that time where i thought we were at least at 80-90% if not better.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||btw, it seems some still are||
btw, it seems some still are not aware that both Bo and Harbaugh used stickers as coaches.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Probably already been||
Probably already been mentioned, but I thought a small block M would look better than stickers of the past.
I dig the idea, as long as it's subtle. Those old wolverine ones would be hard to make out even on TV.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Damn, Negbanged. I||
I promise to try to keep my posts more cohesive, concise, and without the addition of a falsehood tacked onto the end in the future.
I still had a new year's resolution to blow for 2015, so there it is. :)
|17 weeks 4 days ago||I think we play wisconsin||
I think we play wisconsin every 6ish years? I am not sure with Nebraska, but I think everyone agrees the new scheduling system really really REALLY sucks.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||I would hope a lot of people||
I would hope a lot of people did. Max was 250...
At that point in the process, was an 8-1 not worth it to anyone who is even willing to gamble SOMETIMES? I usually just play a few bucks on sports bets. As someone who used to go to greektown/motor city 4 nighs a week just to play poker and nothing else, there was no way I was passing that up with the bits of information we were getting a the time.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Sound familiar with a few||
Sound familiar with a few different select word changes?
|17 weeks 4 days ago||I would be content with 7||
I would be content with 7 wins, but every other team Harbaugh has went to he has had to make prime rib from a pig's asshole.... We may have been "bad" but stanford was terribe. no highly touted recruits, no class that was actually still developing, no highly ranked rush defense already established.
He took the 9ers from shit to championship game in year one, I'd say he had less "swim lanes" in the 9er talent pool when he started there than he already has here.
I'm mosly just sill happy about that whole 8-1 thing, and don't like talking about it to any of my freinds except the ones who told me I was crazy for making that bet all the way up until he was inbound to ann arbor.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, I've been thinking||
Yeah, I've been thinking about it for a while... Why don't we play them? This conference alignment sucks assholes.
About the stickers... I like them, but would a little block M look better on the eyes than a wolverine that nobody can make out even with 1080p? I like them, but would rather see something come back that's more subtle. Harbaugh used them at stanford.
|17 weeks 4 days ago||I drank too much last night,||
I drank too much last night, and decided adderall would be a good substitute for coffee.
Erase the Nebraska rant. I got some wires crossed in the "Denard is hurt, let's watch Bellomy get thrown to the wolves while Devin is at WR" fiasco.
|17 weeks 6 days ago||I just wish DG had his years||
I just wish DG had his years under JH. I really think that dude could have absolutely kicked a lot of asses, and harbaugh would have done him well.
Onto the next..... I don't care who it is, Harbaugh has shown he can develop a QB, so whoever wins..... wins....
|18 weeks 13 hours ago||Why not have a night game?||
Why not have a night game? The lights are there, might as well use them. Not to mention that one of the most epic moments in Michigan football happened at a "UTL" event.
Just because the dude sucked at being an AD doesn't mean EVERY SINGLE idea he had, sucked. Maybe stop numbering it, but is anyone really adamantly opposed to night games besides really old people?
|18 weeks 13 hours ago||Man, for anyone who didn't||
Man, for anyone who didn't see Saban's comments on Harbaugh, coaching in the NFL vs college, and random other crap..... really worth checking it out on espn's website
He laid it out almost to a tee why the NFL might not be as appealing as people keep making it out to be. Actually did a damn fine job, and said a lot of positive stuff about Michigan and Supreme Commander Harbaugh.
Kind of seemed like a big "FU" to espn and the NFL deniers.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||We now have Harbaugh OSU||
We now have Harbaugh
OSU will show the world what it's made of in a few days. For better or worse...
Penn State, while not being "great" has rebounded damn well from what it went through, IMO.
Jerry Kill has made Minnesota quite a bit less of a joke.
Both of our new "cupcake" big ten teams went to bowl games
I am just relieved that maybe, just maybe, within a season or two, I won't have to hear as much about the SEC. I won't have to hear people whine about it being "overrated" while the entire SEC west is in the top 25.
Things are looking up for the conference, and they are looking the "most up" for us, as of this hire. I just hope this doesn't start out like LeBron's homecoming. This is The Harbaugh, we shall not fail.
Imagine a michigan team ranked inside the top 10 to start the season. Can Harbaugh develop all this recruited and maturing talent into what it should have been based on class recruitment rankings?
Part of me wishes DG was able to have a shot under Harbaugh and not get ruined by Hokemania, but beset wishes to DG... Let's get this party started.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||didn't even think about||
didn't even think about picking tickets up for the tuesday game until now
...... looking like scalper's paradise.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||There has been a lot of||
There has been a lot of chatter on twitter from recruits who are watching this really closely.. We could get lucky and swing a few surprises... We'll find out soon enough, but I would be cautiously optimistic
We just got the "coach of the century" as far as this fan base is concerned. One step at a time.

Hello, Mr. Dantonio
|18 weeks 3 days ago||The bandwagon media guys are||
The bandwagon media guys are too late, webb is just playing a game with this.
I say 100% because of my 8-1 odds bet on the happening. Its going to be awesome, as 2k means quite a bit to me right now. Im a student and ran into some small financial issues that was going to squeeze me tight, but 2k will fix that quickly. Now to get to selling assets and ill be set through a good part of the year. (I resell crap on eBay and craigslist so i dont work except on breaks)
|18 weeks 6 days ago||A lot of their fanbase really||
A lot of their fanbase really turned their back on the kid after he got hurt and they found out how good barrettt was.
It was relaly sad to watch the comments like "who needs braxton, we have something better!" when the kid gave it all for that school and ended up hurt. It only accelerated once they saw jones go in vs Wiscy
If i were miller, i *MIGHT* be a little upset at the fairweather fanbase in columbus, then again, he probably likes the people around him. I don't know those dynamics..... I am guessing whoever has the starting job will play a big role in braxton's decision. He has one season to show off his draft equity after the injuries, so he needs to be on the field.
|19 weeks 2 hours ago||All the more i can say is||
All the more i can say is that they met up at a sports bar franchise that is just local to the toledo area
|19 weeks 4 hours ago||If you look at my post||
If you look at my post history, I have been pretty "excited" about this, but have never ever made any real claims other than posting "itshappening.gifs"
Disclaimer: this is a bit of "telephone" going on.
A longtime friend of mine whose parents have some decent connections with people inside the program were out to eat last night and all I will say is that "A family member of someone negotiaing with JH assured them that their family member who is involved deeply in the process assured them that it was a 'done deal' "
This of course means nothing, because we sit, wait, and speculate -- but I would have a really hard time NOT believing something that came from this mouth. Honestly, as much as I believe it, and thought that it would release some tension on my feelings towards the situation, it didn't really do anything. The person he spoke with has both connections to Harbaugh himself and to the University. I'm sorry if it's all ambiguous, but that's as much as I'm willing to say from what I've heard, I do not care to really stir any pots, even if this post by itself is doing just that.
