Drugs ‘n Murder

  • I’ve seen a lot of photos on Flickr that would make any parent or guidance counselor cringe with how stupid young people can be about posting incriminating stuff on the internet. But this girl has blown any of these out of the bongwater by a headshop. In addition to photos of her nerdy boyfriend and her dog, her Flickr is full of picture after picture after picture of herself smoking weed out of a variety of bongs, joints, and pipes.
  • World class athletes have been caught using recreational drugs for years but what makes the recent cases of Tim Lincecum, Michael Phelps, and Santonio Holmes remarkable is that they have been outed at the peak of their careers. In these three instances, law enforcement has helped obliterate the mainstream myth that marijuana smokers cannot be overachievers in amazing physical conditions.
  • While they spent their days helping listeners with their love, sex and health-related problems, Drew and Jim spent many of their nights partying away. Often, Trenton says, that included cocaine use. “He used to say to me, ‘Jim, I love cocaine,'” Trenton notes. “He’d say that a lot — that he loved coke.” In fact, Trenton adds, Drew “did coke with a lot of different people, including myself, on numerous occasions.” Joanna Swylde, who worked as an intern at KROQ at the time and partied with Drew and Trenton, confirms Trenton’s claims. She tells Life & Style they even used to snort lines of cocaine off album covers in the control room at work. “We would do it during the breaks on the show,” Swylde recalls.
  • One can understand on the level of myth-making, propagandizing, brain-washing, indoctrinating, embracing pseudo science and possessing the most tin ears politically why these men (and a woman) who’ve represented the ‘big lie’ to the American public and Congress for so long are reticent to 1) acknowledge that they were at all wrong in opposing cannabis legalization (even notably medical access and industrial hemp), 2) that they’re logically afraid of rightly being branded as ‘liars’ and 3) having to cop to the hundreds of billions of tax dollars that have been both wasted and left uncollected for decades…to say nothing of the 21 million arrests and millions of incarcerations since 1937.
  • “We’re sitting here as a teaching staff, always short on money, and we’re thinking, ‘Gosh, all the money it takes to fly that helicopter and hire all those people, it would be great to have this for education.’ “
  • Linkletter: “Another big difference between marijuana and alcohol is that when people smoke marijuana, they smoke it to get high. In every case, when most people drink, they drink to be sociable. You don’t see people –”

    Nixon: “That’s right, that’s right.”

    Linkletter: “They sit down with a marijuana cigarette to get high –”

    Nixon: “A person does not drink to get drunk.”

    Linkletter: “That’s right.”

    Nixon: “A person drinks to have fun.”

    Linkletter: “I’d say smoke marijuana, you smoke marijuana to get high.”

    Nixon: “Smoke marijuana, er, uh, you want to get a charge of some sort, and float, and this, that and the other thing.”

  • As bad as they can be, American ghettos are like the suburbs in poverty-stricken, war-torn countries across the Earth. Therefore, we must tip our hats to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Thanks to ruthless Mexican drug gangs who send messages with beheading, disemboweling and other creative killing techniques, Juarez owns the title for Murder Capital of the World. That’s right, Chicago… ya’all thought those measly 510 bodies you caught in 2008 was an accomplishment? Ciudad Juarez racked up a whopping 2,600 murders last year. Reportedly, eight people are killed per day and that’s when business is slow. Homicidal maniacs in The States are lookin’ real shabby right now.
  • In an attempt to intimidate and one-up each other the cartels often torture and execute rivals, throwing their severed heads onto barroom floors and city streets or hanging them from overpasses. In an especially incomprehensible act, assassins removed a man’s face and stitched it onto a soccer ball.
  • The New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services released highly restrictive regulations for the state’s medical marijuana program Wednesday night, tightening the screws on what patients, lawmakers, and advocates were already calling the most restrictive medical marijuana program in the country.
  • Surveying Alexander Shulgin’s pioneering work with phenethylamine compounds, the ‘alchemy of medicinal chemistry,’ and the threat posed by the Federal Analogue Act.
  • The logistics speak for themselves: Six million tabs of LSD were recovered by the police, the largest haul of drugs ever known. A squad of 800 detectives were involved. Some 120 people were arrested throughout the UK and France. Stashes of LSD worth £100 million were unearthed. Over £800,000 in money was discovered hidden in Swiss bank accounts. And 17 defendants were jailed for a total of 170 years.
  • On 26 March 1977 the largest drugs bust in history cracked a drugs ring based near Tregaron. Six million tabs of LSD were recovered by the police. In 1978 the BBC made a documentary about the investigation:
  • Operation Julie was a UK police operation investigating the production of LSD by two drug rings in 1976. Much of the drug was produced in rural Wales. The principal suspects were Richard Kemp, a chemist and graduate of the University of St Andrews, and Lewis Daly, an anthropology and cryptozoology professor at the University of Wales, Lampeter. As one of the ring-leaders, Henry Barclay Todd was one of the defendents who received a 13 year jail sentence. This was the second time that Todd had been arrested for his involvement in drugs.
  • The video below is an exclusive look at what could be the country’s first official cannabis factory, a 60,000 sq. ft. facility in Oakland that would house 30,000 plants and could produce $50 million of cannabis per year. Part of a proposal by Gropech, a non-profit that promises to create hundreds of union jobs and reinvest profits in the Bay Area if given a permit by the Oakland City Council, the facility would supply medical dispensaries across the state in an attempt to bring transparency to the growing process. “The laws in California were sort of backward because they addressed retail sales before wholesale production,” said Derek Peterson, co-founder of Gropech. “It would be like if you built a bunch of liquor stores, and only afterward built distilleries.”
  • Border guards have intercepted a record £13million haul of DMT – a powerful hallucinogen used by Amazon tribes.
  • The Polish government announced Monday that it has shut down around a thousand stores that sold newly-emerging synthetic drugs, such as mephedrone and preparations containing synthetic cannabinoids (marketed under names like Spice and K2 in the US). It is also moving to amend its drug laws to cover such substances.
  • Social media can’t provide what social change has always required.

Wonder Wheel Coney Island

Only Aron could be on the phone at a time like this.

We didn’t tell The Arab Parrot that the Wonder Wheel’s car swings, so when it started movin’ he got shook…Haaaah!

Death grip on the seat.

Coney Island has been cleaned up a bunch, so much of the grimey element that drew me to it in the 90’s has been white washed, but at least it’s still rockin’ ‘n not Disney-fied.

The Cyclone will always be my favorite roller coaster.

Justin Bieber Smokes Angel Dust

  • In 1997 the US Space Command declared war on the world by committing America to “full spectrum dominance” by 2020, “to close the ever-widening gap between diminishing resources and increasing military commitments”. This do1ctrine was approved and expanded by the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 2000. For Dick Cheney’s Project for the New American Century, however, it did not go far enough. The doctrine was expanded further by the Obama administration, from dominating “land, sea, air and space” to doctrine, ideology and cyberspace. Everything America and its pillars (Britain and Israel) do must, therefore, be understood within the context of “full spectrum dominance”.
  • Imagine finding unexplained condoms around your house and then waking up one night to find your partner having sex with a stranger.
    It might sound like an affair, but what if your “cheating” partner was fast asleep during the act?
    The phenomenon, called sleep sex, was described to doctors at a meeting in Australia
  • So WRONG!
    Thanks Baller.
  • Thirsty? Why not open an ice-cold bottle of pot-infused root beer? A new line of pot-infused beverages masquerading behind soda flavors are now available to patients with a prescription for medical marijuana. Made by Colorado-based Dixie Elixirs, the carbonated drinks are marketed to medicinal-marijuana patients who wish to avoid “weed culture” stigmas.
  • Reminiscent of the “Collar of Obedience” from Star Trek, this new helmet according to it’s creator William J Tyler at Arizona State University, will be able to non-invasively produce all the same effects that are now possible only through deep surgical implants. Employing a form of targeted ultrasound technology, the “Helmet of Obedience” will be able to manipulate pain and motivational centers in the brain at a finer scale than even current magnetic stimulation.
  • There’s a lot of talk these days about America being an empire in decline. Gerald Celente, director of the Trends Research Institute, goes a step further, arguing America is following a similar path as the former Soviet Union. “While the many glaring differences between the two political systems have been exhaustively publicized – especially in the U.S. – the glaring similarities [go] unnoticed,” Celente writes in The Trends Journal, which he publishes.
  • The sect named “Nobilis Ordo Diaboli” – or the “Noble Order of the Devil” – was engaged in the secret worshiping of Satan in the republic of Mordovia in central Russia since 2003. It was organized by medical student Aleksandr Kazakov, 24, and had up to 75 adepts over the years, investigators say.
  • Never been to an Air Sex show before? Here’s what you need to know: it’s a lot like Air Guitar, but instead of rocking out with an imaginary guitar, you’re making sweet and/or filthy love with an imaginary sex partner.
  • Just what did Justin Bieber mean when he reportedly said, “I feel like the Kurt Cobain of my generation, but people just don’t understand me.”
  • The Dirty Smutty Sex Scene: Time Square at Its Pornographic Filthiest
  • A hall full of elderly white people in Medicare-paid scooters, railing against government spending and imagining themselves revolutionaries as they cheer on the vice-presidential puppet hand-picked by the GOP establishment. If there exists a better snapshot of everything the Tea Party represents, I can’t imagine it.
