    it takes brains to write a program. it doesn't take brains to get drunk and do drugs. It does require a lack of them, though...I've never coded while drunk or high because I don't get drunk or high, nor will I ever.

    I'm always under the influence when writing programs. The influence of caffeine, but it's still a drug.

    >wow ethic... that was a hell of a long labor day weekend huh?<

    ROFL!!! What's your son's name?

    >it doesn't take brains to get drunk and do drugs. It does require a lack of them, though<

    Wow, now that's a biased, unresearched, and uninformed opinion. If you are saying that only idiots with lack of brain cells do drugs then I'm sorry, but you are a sadly, sadly mistaken little boy.

    Now, if you want to change "people who use drugs" to "people who use drugs irresponsibly" then I'd agree, and we both could be on our merry way.

    I am referring to knowingly using such items as hallucinagens (spelling?) or other things that just completely blast your brain out of the water for a while, never to completely return...I've seen too many kids that have smoked so much pot that they are, in essence, permanently stoned, because they can't say an intelligent thing anymore...

    So, you are accusing that marijuana kills brain cells? That's complete nonsense. Fact: 1 out of 3 people smoke marijuana on a regular basis. Are you saying that 1/3 of the world's population is so doped up they don't know what they are doing?

    Besides, there's never been a study that proves marijuana kills brain cells. I'm dead serious. Not the kind of info they teach you in DARE, eh?

    Anyway, trust me. If anyone is around the pot-smoking scene here, it's me. I've smoked a whole lot of cannabis in the last few years. I've been around numerous people that have done so also. I would hardly call myself or those people idiots.

    I'm not saying everyone that smokes weed is automatically not an idiot. I'm merely saying that smoking weed does not mean you are an idiot.

    And to say that people who consciously use hallucinogenic drugs are idiots with no logic or rational reasoning is a pathetic generalization at best. I know a bunch of people on this very board (No, I will not give names.) and at FD that have used all kinds of drugs, and these people are amongst the most intelligent beings I've conversed with.

    I'm sorry about going on this rant, but it really ........es me off when people who are not informed make untrue statements/observations.

    P.S. I don't think (I won't say there isn't because I honestly have nothing to back this up with.) there has ever been a case of psychosis (when you get "stuck" in a drug high) related to marijuana. There has been numerous cases with LSD and psilocybin, but they are 1 in a million.

    Well, anyways. I'm making progress. I've made a regular topic and only got bashed by one poster.

    Bonny is a split-personality.

    If you ever find Alphabird32 and GBonny something-or-other on AIM, they're both the same person.

    HB, usually I wouldn't question anything you say about pot (because you know a lot more about it than me), but 1 in 3 a regular user? I don't know, dude - that seems way too high.

    Cheez, you're right. It doesn't sound correct because it's not. I mixed that statistic up with another one.

    1 out of 3 people HAVE smoked, not regularly smoke, weed. I apologize for that mistake.

    As for how many people smoke REGULARLY, it's around 1 in 4 people. I know this is true, and if anyone would like I'll provide sources (as I always do if anyone asks).

    Again, I'm sorry for the mistake. I'm glad you caught it.

    BTW, "regularly" doesn't necessarily mean everyday. It just means periodic. This could be once a day or once a month...

    A scary story...

    >> on a regular basis. Are you saying that 1/3 of the world's >>population is so doped up they don't know what they are doing?

    I would like to see how they figure that 1 out of 3 people smoke it (taking poles on programming message boards?).


    I know of a story where a group of programmers were drunk when they programmed:

    There were ten of them, one of them had gone in and purchased several boxes of "drink", he hopped in the car and drove them all to another's apartment. once there they started drinking and drinking. then one of them bumped the "on" button of the computer and they all were instantly attracted to the glow of the screen. One of them sat down and started coding, when he fell of the seat another would quickly take his place, this continued throughout the night.

    The next day they had the retail version of Windows 98.

    Hillbillie, I would like to see those sources. Reliable, recent sources...nothing from Potsmoker's Magazine, 1973 or anything like that (:
