“You're saying there are no negative side effects of using weed?”

“You said harmful dose. I'm aware there are mild side effects from weed for some people (anxiety, mild paranoia.) They don't like that feeling so they don't smoke it. Absolutely nothing that is "harmful" relating to a dose.”
“The lives of people with addictive personalities can be ruined by alcohol or cannabis or whatever drug. It's not the pot or beer. The adverse outcome is determined by individual's ability to regulate or abstain from harmful doses.”

“There is no harmful dose of weed.”

“I agree. Moderation is key.
I just happen to believe that alcohol is exponentially more harmful than marijuana. So, if she DOES have an addictive personality, I'd prefer her to be a pothead than a drunk.”
“If we wanted to reduce the carbon going in to the atmosphere we'd be discouraging driving in favor of walking, biking and public transportation. Our leaders can't suggest this however, because people equate driving (polluting) with freedom, prosperity and the American dream. We can't handle the truth.”
“What if the employee (regardless the age) just isn't capable of learning new technology required to keep the business running? Newer employees often bring fresh skills and willingness to learn new things.”

“It's rare for technology to change so fast that older employees can't adapt just as easily as younger employees who also have to be trained.
Older employees remember why things are done the way they are. They remember what didn't work the last time it was tried. They know the quirks of the machinery.
A while ago someone pitted two kids with cell phones (texting) against two old-timers with telegraphs. Guess who was able to pass on a message faster with no mistakes?”
“Technology is a net negative for the environment. Its not possible put smart phones in the hands of our 7 billion and rising population, and to attempt to do so will hasten environmental degradation and mass starvation. Just think about the mining and fossil fuel usage necessary to produce the material and electricity for such and endeavor. And to what end? So people can walk around, eyes transfixed on the glowing screen as Facebook zombies?”

“What is better, addiction to distraction or hauling around a Kalashnikov weapon to attack or defend oneself in a hostile environment. Human transformation is the only hope for a shift in our trajectory.”

“True, instead of dumping money in all these token technological gadgets we should find ways to put these people to work, help them sustain themselves and ultimately elevate their standard of living and their health.
Maybe if every single job we exported did not go to China, we might be able to send some work to some of these poor nations.”

“I take care of the house, yard, dogs and prepare meals for and tidy up after my professional wife. I don't usually tell people this, though. For some reason it really irritates my conservative relatives.”
“It seems to be more a matter of practicality. If the removal of hair was easily done, one would then have the option. As a man, I have a hard enough time keeping my face and neck clear of hair.
On the issue of masculinity, naturally, one can be with or without chest hair.”
TN Writer on Oct 18, 2013 at 14:45:54
“True. I'll also note, not all man have the same amount of hair. Thus for some, the removal of hair is far easier.”
“I can't imagine that shaving my chest hair would be a good thing. Besides the nicks and burns and close calls near the nipples, it will keep growing back and I'll end up with stubble. What then will I do not shave my hairy arms and back? Where does it end?”
TN Writer on Oct 18, 2013 at 13:30:25
“To each their own. My point was more towards those who think chest hair is a sign of masculinity, those who say it is natural, etc. A woman's leg hair is natural, but prevailing public opinion is that a smooth leg is more feminine.”
“You'll have to try it and find out for yourself. Many users say there's absolutely nothing harmful about it. Does that make sense? Like any intoxicant, there are good and not so good effects. Like any drug, the dosage and individual tolerance determines the outcome.”

“Nothing is harmless. The "dangers" of marijuana have been overblown for near 100 years now, it's natural that things are swinging the other way. When compared to many legal products, I find it amusing we find ten minutes to talk about the "dangers" of pot.”
“Does it not take fossil fuels to produce liquid nitrogen? What is the energy input vs output?”

“I'm not a scientist.
If Jeremy Clarkson (Top Gear - BBC America) thinks its the best solution, then whom am I to dispute him?
Toyota has been investing quite a lot in this technology. It's still in its infancy, it will need time to perfect just like any other technology and just as nuclear fission could be the best option to halt Global Warming.(if its not too late by then)
More investments will be needed. Don't count on Big Oil to contribute a single penny.”
“Is it going to be those of us individuals with the the largest carbon footprint that are persuaded to reduce or those with growing carbon footprints to remain impoverished? I don't see either happening.
So, prepare for the worst.”
“Yes, this is the kind of commitment that we will need in order to reduce the coming impact of burning fossil fuels. Every little bit of reduction will help, but ultimately we'll need a smaller human population, more advances in clean energy technology and efficiency, and widespread support for smaller carbon footprints.
Maybe we're just rearranging the proverbial deck chairs on the Titanic, but its worth trying.”

“I agree, nature has a way of thinning the herd. I just think we helped it along.
You really can't discuss the smaller populations, however, this tends to upset to many.
I agree with you, it is worth trying, doing nothing isn't the answer.”
brianwjones on Sep 27, 2013 at 19:08:25
“The earth is working on that smaller population thing.”
“The main problem with Republicans is that they lack basic compassion. Why else would one be opposed to a law that helps more people access and afford health care, and is cost neutral?
Sure there are many on the left that don't like the law, but mainly because it won't help everyone access and afford health care.
I would prefer to have a single payer system, but the new health care law is a step toward that goal. Once the law is in place, people will not want to give it up and we will be able to build on its success.”

“because the cost is FAR from neutral. But you will find out soon enough.”
“Most of the cost of smart phone come with the data plan, texting and other fees. I'd get a iphone if i didn't have to pay extra for texting (i rarely text), and data (i would just use the home wifi or other hot spots). I suppose the carriers have to make money one way or another.”

“You can beat this rat race system by using TING!”
“Those flying toys are highly annoying and frighten my dogs. Some guy had one at a 4th of July celebration I went to. I suspected it was only a matter a time that someone was injured by one. Hopefully, for safety and privacy concerns, these private drones will be outlawed.”
“If you've ever been sober and around someone using marijuana, you'll understand it's not an entirely benign substance. Nor, is it without certain benefit for certain conditions. The effect needs to be quantitatively and objectively measured so those wishing to protect mental and physical health can make informed decisions.”
Joey Ismail on Sep 3, 2013 at 22:43:48
“If you've ever been sober around someone who has taken Xanax, drank too much coffee, had one too many red bulls, or consumed any intoxicant for that matter, you will understand how little your comment means.”
Antix80 on Sep 3, 2013 at 18:46:59
“Well, let's see...
I've been sober around stoners and I've been sober around drunks, and I've gotta say that I would choose being around stoners every day of the week and twice on Sundays.”
myhomeo on Sep 3, 2013 at 18:37:47
“Like the informed decisions that have been made about alcohol?”

“Humans have been using it for over 6,000 years I think plenty of tests have been done.”

“You can't do a good analysis on weed because it's illegal. Any, repeat any, studies on the long or short term effects of weed are going to be questionable because of that simple fact.”
Jennifer Mead on Sep 3, 2013 at 18:32:27
“Why aren't you outside some bar protesting that they quantitatively and objectively measure their intake?”
“If the Middle East dissolves into chaos, part of the world's (including the U.S.) oil supply will be disrupted, sending our economy into recession. At that point we will be drawn into a much larger conflict. Also, turning the other cheek at chemical warfare sends the message the wrong message.
I'm not necessarily supporting a go-it-alone strike, just trying to get at the reasoning behind the action.”

“I am afraid of a cascade of events that will send us into a much wider war.”
“Are you saying there are no adverse consequences of using marijuana? I can have a good micro beer in the evening and not notice any difference the next day, while any amount of marijuana I have leaves me feeling lethargic for days afterward. Maybe it affects people differently? Hopefully, it will be studied more as a result of legalization.”
