Re: I hate science
Everything in moderation, even moderation.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Here in the great of Wisissippi
Well here the frozen north we will probably not see legal weed in my lifetime. The GQP doesn't want to do anything to hinder the school to prison pipeline. It also gives them a reason to shame the poor and BIPOC. The rubes love having someone to hate and shame, even when they are part of the group being attacked.
I figured I would just to wait till it became legal at a federal level, but I don't see that happening. I fear the great backlash is coming and we will be fighting just to maintain the right to vote.

Re: I hate science
When I do partake, I usually do some edibles and smoke. Vaped a couple of times and liked it.
I do not partake in places where it is illegal. Not necessarily because I don't want to break the law(it is like speeding), but because in the places where it is illegal the line of people it goes back to is a very bad man. I will not subsidize criminal thugs that are probably involved in actual illicit drugs, human trafficking, and even worse things.

Re: T-Mobile 5g Home Internet
I get 8, yes 8, from CenturyLink. Only other options are satellite. Maybe will try starlink but that has its own issues.

Re: I hate science
I wear hearing aids also. I all but quit watching tv before I got them. Mine are a few years old so they do not have Bluetooth but I have a device that broadcast the tv sound direct to my hearing aids. Even with that, I need closed captioning. The only use I see for something like google glass is to have closed captioning for everyday life.

Re: I hate science
I will get some color when I go to Puerto Rico. The lack of sunlight here in WI has lightened me up a bit. Not as light as most of the people here. The Scandinavian and Germanic heritage shows as they become paler and paler. If my wife gets much paler she will be ghostly.
A week of sun and I will darken up quite nicely.

We are at about 18 hours with temps above freezing. We probably will be back under tonight.

Re: Happy Holiday!
Alas, I live in a state(Wisconsin) in which it will never be legal until it becomes legal nationally, and even then.
