Hopefully the breaking is over.

It hurt me as much as it did you.

Her name is "Meytal Cohen"?

Is that a stage name?

Re: New York's Outdated Knife Law (NYT)

Meh, I had to purchase (at premium) an approved under 18 street legal pen knife for my daughter's unsupervised camping expedition. http://shop.getoutwiththekids.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/DofE-Victorinox-penknife-tools.jpg Note the rounded unsharpened end to the blade. The pointed end to the ...

Re: New York's Outdated Knife Law (NYT)

Good grief! MT actually had the balls to recommend one of those terrible horrible illegal knives to me --- and I honored his recommendation. I must remember never to take it with me to the town of oversized sugar containing drinks and where only the criminals are well armed. Better I'd take a hoard...

Re: Marijuana Legalization

Thanks for the clarification. I thought that was only LSD. Mountaineer While they each have their place (depending on the job), comparing pot to LSD is like comparing a snubnose .38 to a Stinger missile. On the subject of drugs and religious experiences, though, I don't think it's an accident that ...

Re: Marijuana Legalization

I've had similar experiences with reality. :) Care to share? Did you see Jesus or something? Just trying to make the point that a bad pot experience doesn't mean pot is bad. Like reality, pot just is. People, however, experience it in many different ways. If pot usage creates undesirable mental sta...

Re: New York's Outdated Knife Law (NYT)

This law is being used simply as a tool to harass the most vulnerable members of society. It also provides a pretext for the government to steal your knife. I'll bet if you checked in the pockets of many police officers, you would find knives like these because they are just very useful tools. I'm ...

Re: Marijuana Legalization

The biggest risk associated with pot use right now is that it can cause the government to take away your property and put you in a cage like an animal. I think it's good to eliminate these risks through decriminalization. Alcohol prohibition didn't work any better than pot prohibition has. It just t...

Re: NEW FORUM HOST

I worked in an office for several years with a Ukrainian tech support guy. When he began to grow frustrated with you or your problem, he would hiss "re-boot" in his thick accent in a tone that a doctor might use when telling a patient he was going to die. That guy also had several scars from bullet ...
