Man i want to go to Seattle so bad now that they have legalised weed. It would be a cool place to go normally but now it will just be awesome.

Also i think my family is starting to think i like drugs, we had an over dinner discussion about drugs and i was clearly on the we should legalise it side.

I kind of want to know why pot is illegal. who decided that it was bad? conspiracy theories but i reckon its all about the dirty ****en alcohol and tobacco companies. If people aren't smoking weed then they are going to be drinking and smoking.

It's probably a mixture of a lot of things. I think the government is dumb for not legalizing it and taxing the shit out of it though. We'd be out of debt in no time Not really, but on the state level the extra income could help out I'm sure.

That's a pretty solid price, even if you were in the States. What year is it? The older grey ones are kinda picky about the rest of your set up. The newer ones (I think post 2005 or 2006) are friendlier.

Eh, Seattle is alright. Go to Denver and then spend the rest of your time in the surrounding areas. You'll have a better time.

And there are a ton of reasons why. The biggest reason that there was public support for it at the time was the violence going on in Mexico involving it and the resulting media coverage. Biggest reasons for it being pushed were self righteous ass holes, Hearst supporting it to also get industrial hemp banned so he wouldn't have to compete and a general shifting in attitudes after the industrial revolution and associated turmoil.

what i don't really understand is that i have never been so stoned that i fall over and can't function. and i have been super stoned. the worst thing i have done is fall asleep.

i have been so drunk that i have fallen over and passed out and shit. how anyone can argue pot is worse is beyond me. Although i have seen some peope freak out a bit when they have it. but if it were legal these people would just not have it just like people choose not to drink.

Thanks for the warning, it's and old grey one(I believe the new ones are blue). Going to bring my pedalboard along since I'll be running it with a big muff clone and some fairly heavy fuzz tones

i haven't done it in a while but the fact that the big muff is scooped kind of killed the use of a wah seeing as there were no mid frequencies to sweep. could be that i was using a shitty wah though.

I can't imagine playing that sort of game on a huge screen. If I'm playing with a mouse and keyboard, it has to be on my 24" monitors rather than the TV. Controller though, then I'd use the TV.

For some games, it just makes sense. Like LoL and SCII. Shooters are nicer with a mouse too because you get more control, and mechanical keyboards make help you react faster. It's really only arcade and RPG type games that I would play with a controller now.

I'm actually borderline incompetent with a controller in my hands I can get by, but ever since I started playing games, even poorly, at about 5 years old, I've been a PC/mouse and keys guy.

When ME3 came out, I got decent with a controller because I didn't have a PC. Then I picked up LoL, built a computer and lost any ability to use a controller.

That's pretty much it, I house sat for a month and they had a PS3, got decent with a controller, then came back to my computer, and lost any skill I had. I'm just too familiar with a PC to ever really be as good with a console.

Fack. Finally found out that it's the quick connect thing in my case that's causing the SSD problems. It doesn't fit all the way in the SATA slot on the SSD, so I had to mount it like I would in any other case. But now I can't transfer everything over and have it work, so I'm reinstalling Windows on the SSD and clearing the HDD.
