    The U.S. doesn't make such a distinction. Both are illegal.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    Actually, I believe you can (and it appears to be quite nutritious). In any case, it can't be produced in the States in any form or fashion for whatever purpose.

    EDIT:
    To be honest, I don't get what point you're trying to make. Care to elaborate?
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    Do you mean to say that big business,with the aid of political backing, lied to people in order to protect their business interests rather than act for the betterment of the population and planet? Yeah, right. Next you'll be saying that smoking causes cancer when Philip Morris has already told us that's not true.......

    ^^That was to illustrate a point that considering that we are STILL being lied to by those who would rather protect their business interests over anything else. So why is it so far fetched that in the 1930's when people were much more ignorant (correct usage in context) that business interests came before anything else and "arguments" were accepted without question, especially if the argument was that it must be bad because the negroes are doing it!

    It seems that Sebastiani's relative was one of the few forward thinking people of the time, but as a minority and without any political backing his ideas would probably have been discounted as "outlandish".

    But anyway - on topic. First animated avatars, now wanting bigger avatars. What next? Why can't you be happy that you have an avatar at all.

    Somewhat of an irony then that it's founding document was written on hemp paper then.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    Imagine how much slower it would be with loads of bloated crappy avatars as well

    Consider the current restriction to be an opportunity to be creative, not a problem to be avoided by changing the rules.

    I hope that you are kidding here because it is a proven fact that smoking increases the probability of cancer esp. lung cancer.

    Nope, I'm deadly serious. As I made clear in the post you quoted.

    I think smoking cigars is way more unhealthy than smoking weed.
    Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
    What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
    All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
    For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

    This is probably why people on the East Coast of the US will buy a cigar, split the rapper, dump the tobacco out on the street, and roll weed in it. Because they are smart that way.

    I grew up in the NorthWest and that is much less of a practice there last time I checked. But in NYC it is almost funny, since it provides an incredible in-your-face demonstration of how much tax money could be collected thru legalization. Walk into *ANY* corner convenience here (there are like 3-4 to a block) and right behind the counter you will see a monster display of (!) cheap, fat, flavoured cigars. Like, banana, strawberry, mango, peach, vanilla, ultra-chocolate, meringue, silver, plain, platinum, coconut, beef, watermelon, candy-cane, and so on. Wait about five minutes and you will see two or three kids come in and buy a few, at $1-2 a piece. Now, one thing you *never* see is these same kids (or anyone else) strolling around smoking these cheap cigars they bought just for the big flavoured leaf a cigar is wrapped in. Which the replacement filling is gonna be $5-10.

    But if the government started collecting tax there the money would no longer be needed because of all the dough they saved closing prisons, so I guess there is no point.
