Legal!

Happy legal Oregon pot day!

Of course, since our ever-efficient state government is involved, we can't actually legally purchase pot at a dispensary yet (unless you already have a medical card). They're supposedly 18 months away from having pot available at liquor stores too. Evidently the current medical dispensaries that are all over the place are set to start selling soon(ish), but we'll see.

For now, it's legal to grow (up to four plants) and smoke your own though, so I'll take it. Now, where to find some good seed varieties and/or plant starts...

Fuck Everything Friday

I guess it's that day again. It's almost like there's some sort of inherent problem with American society that a few people are willing to occasionally mumble niceties about and then quietly pretend doesn't exist. Whatever could it be?

Oh well. I guess I'll just say again what I said before:

Oh, an additional thing. Hey, Guvna Haley: you said on the "news" this morning that it's a time for "healing" and not politics in regard to the fucking racist fucking flag flying at the SC statehouse. You know what would be a really good, healing thing to do? Take the fucking flag down, you shitstain! Shorter, me:

Or like teh zombie says: Fuck. Everything.

I get fun spam (part 2 of ???)

Looks like I'm invited to some sort of prestigious shiding:

I s'pose all of you louts could come too, now that you know about it. Keep it on the downlow though, wouldn't want the riffraff showing up.

Remember your green bowtie -- very important.

Thoughtless Thursday

I really need to post some creative, well thought-out shit someday.

Instead, here's some music you'll hate:

Sorry I forgot the anniversary, Helen.

I forgot that the 35th anniversary of this was yesterday:

I was 10. As a native Oregonian, I had direct, but minor, experience with the volcano leading up to its final huge eruption. It had spewed ash sporadically over the previous year or so, and on several occasions we got to experience the ash fall down in Oregon due to wind changes. Thankfully, for us, the wind blew the ash cloud to the east on the 18th, so we didn't get the after effects that places like Spokane, Washington did. Those guys, as well as many areas near to the mountain, were seriously fucked. Multiple feet of ash blanketed everything, and that shit is nasty. Destroyed vehicles, ruined crops, just generally fucked with the area for a long, long time.

For years later, every time we'd head north we could see these towering piles of ash alongside Interstate 5 and around the towns near the mountain until vegetation finally grew on them. The ash is still there though, just under a layer of grass/shrubs/trees. I still have a jar of it somewhere that I collected from a roadside that summer.

Oh, and 57 people died. A couple of idiot locals that refused to leave, but also scientists studying the mountain, unfortunately.

Can't believe it's been 35 years already. I feel old.
