    RG, an aside
    My younger brother went to the Sorbonne in Paris, came back and went to Bard College; took LSD 4-5 times and lost it, attention span 30 sec, etc. In NY slept under the highway divider to avoid mosquitos, lived in the back of a pie delivery truck - did the hippie thing for 6 years. Went to Bezerkley and eventually a PhD
    and a deadly dull life thereafter. Not sure of the moral (never stop trying ? but trying at what ?)

    Escape - you cleaned up your post, and the foolishness persists.

    So this guy got his dog really high. He tells the dog "Play dead." And the dog says, "Nah man, play Floyd!"

    Yes, in those times I saw that myself with some people. My wife and I didn’t do drugs as we were interested in having children and providing them a home and an education. Fortunately that all worked out for us.
    I hope your brother has healed and is doing well today. Good luck!

    I am from SF and the results can be seen today in The City

    so sad
    I watched a you tube documentary on the current state of San francisco. I must say I was a little taken aback. Public defecation , used syringes , homeless crisis. Such a shame.

    yea, I unna stan; some live vicariously at home and others prefer first-hand real-time experiences
    why on earth would I be interested in script writers and/or actors parroting someone else's words ?
    I've been shot at and missed, and a tad more; treadmills are for hamsters

    sorry, movies are make believe (now Citizen Kane I do like, ok)
    now UFC ? (internet betting channel in UK) I'm on board

    we do, we do; we've been robbing, raping, and killing for all the history we know of
