    OK, I don't even know what to say.

    The largest study ever done on the topic shows that there is no link (it even showed that there may be a small protective effect), and you don't "believe" it. It's a major study from a well-respected university; it's pretty audacious of you to simply dismiss it out of hand.

    With regard to the "stupid" question. Anecdotal evidence doesn't prove anything. If I find someone who says they feel stupid after drinking water, have I just shown the powerful psychological impact of water?


    I don't doubt that one could cough until they hit a gag reflex, but that's not the same as passing out and asphyxiating on vomit.

    :fistbump: on the understanding why it's nonsense.

    The pot hangover where you feel stupid the day after is real. I have friends whom I've smoked with that I've had this conversation with and they agree also. It was my understanding that most people agree on this aspect, minus daily smokers who are adults. My personal experience has definitely proven these effects exist.

    I know you won't agree with me. Cheers, enjoy smoking pot.

    Pot smokers who smoke regularly are worse than crazy fanatic Apple users.

    What I like best about these people is that they cry out "four twenty!" when it is 4:20. It is funny when they do that. It is funny every time, even when you have heard it twenty days in a row at 4:20. (Also they do this when it is April 20. This might be even funnier because it requires some wit to catch the reference. [April is not pronounced "four," but it is the fourth month.])

    Odd indeed. I firmly believe that if marijuana smokers celebrated the birthday of a man of love, such as Captain Stubing for example, instead of Hitler's birthday, marijuana would long since have been legalized throughout the United States.

    :rolleyes:

    I don't buy the Reefer Madness depiction of pot use, so I MUST be a pothead.

    I'm not a "regular pot smoker," and I'm not a "fanatic." I simply prefer support for my positions that is more rigorous than "it seems like it should be this way, so I'm going to believe it, even in the face of powerful quantitative evidence to the contrary."

    Smoking, passing out, and vomiting seems like a bit of a reach, but smoking can absolutely induce nausea if you hit it after you've been drinking heavily (though it can also prevent hangover and keep you from puking... go figure). It can also happen if you rip too hard (yellow walling, etc.). It's not the coughing that does it- nausea just happens sometimes. If we're talking puffing at an easy pace, then sure, it will keep the stomach settled.

    Bud hangovers are also real. They vary individually, however. Generally speaking, if you can study while you smoke, you can focus the next day. I can't study on bud and barely function the morning after. Being too impaired to drive is another problem that can be encountered with weed. Granted, I'm the poster child for the anti-marijuana crowd, but I function much better on alcohol than bud. We've actually tested this with a gokart course.

    Edit: the whole point of me coming to this thread:

    [​IMG]

    A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"

    The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:

    "Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.
    They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
    They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.

    Mermaids do not exist.

    But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish?
    They would have no sex life and could not bear children.
    Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
    And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?

    Without a doubt, I'd rather be a whale.

    At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.

    We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn't enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies.
    We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
    Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: "How amazing am I ?! "

    One of my wife's friends posted that same stupid thing today. Ugh.

    That last paragraph is so ridiculous. I'm not down with bashing people for being fat, but this "fat pride" shit is awful.

    I don't care about the chick who posted it, so I'm considering commenting "That's so sad. She'd be beautiful if she just lost 40lbs, but instead she's just fat."

    There needs to be a male version of that. See how many "likes" it gets.
