Colombian rainforests do produce 15% of the Earth's oxygen, but seeing as these smug fuckers live off the smell of their own farts that need not worry.
rather than that. Crumbs.
about deforestation or exploitation?
is that too catty? possibly.
i certainly felt it'd gone under-appreciated for the last nine and a half hours
No, it's a crystalline tropane alkaloid like the article says. It's bad enough they mangle the original phrase, but extra bad when you consider the context.
are cunts for many reasons. This is the worst one, ugh.
I had a mate, who died (from it, we all think) and he was lovely, except that towards the end he ended up owing all of us loads, and it was awful cos in the last times we had seen him, we had had to be broaching the subject of the money he owed to us all, which obviously no one wanted to do cos everyone loved him, and loads of people turned up at the funeral and cried, no one knew he had so many freinds (and creditors), but even on realising this many skins rastas rockers cried at his funeral.
Cos whether he was turning into something worse he was a lovely person who brightened everyones life
(PS i hate the stuff cos of this, was never really into it before)
Me and Stealthy must have cunted up several football fields in the Jacuzzi last night
That is exactly how I would have put it, too.
this article isn't exactly neutral journalism
there are far more complex issues afoot in the cocaine trade than Political speeches aimed at shaming the casual chattering class user
I doubt anyone on here would have minded. Interesting. I think the problem is the middle/upper classes are responsible for most of the global problems facing the world, but they don't like to be reminded of it. Probably because it gets in the way of blaming the plebs for everything.
you're thinking of Pale Ale, Pasties and EvoStick
Doesn't change the fact there's something intensely lame about m/c coke users. It's like: 'Say, we should snort some cocaine in order to 'live dangerously.''
or just "giving a shit about anything at all, ever"?
Because it seems to be used both ways.
It's too far away and pretend and easy to ignore and lalalala. Like telling young smokers to stop because they might die in 60 years.
by having to keep a coke-addled friend out of trouble on the streets of Cardiff. It was really fucking annoying - in the end I had to not go to the late night Swn thing at Dempsey's and go for a quiet drink in a hotel instead 'cos the way said friend was acting he was clearly (and deservedly) going to get himself punched at some point, possibly by me.
I'm not currently very sympathetic to coke use.
or anything else the received wisdom dictates.
Maybe I wasn't getting good shit?
Definitely made him act like a cunt though.
on narco-terrorism and the problems in mexico now. it's pretty depressing stuff - i'm glad calderon's been speaking out recently. in mexico alone, 10,000 have died in the 'drug war' since 2001 - which is twice the amount of US soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan and that's not even as bad as Colombia!
if they legalized it then it wouldn't be pushed underground where they're just looking for profit, they'd be regulated and thus wouldn't be dumping chemicals into the forests... etc. etc.
i've had a couple of nights at a friends house where maybe 10 people were taking loads of coke, and only a couple (including me) weren't, and they didn't get on my tits but i can see it happening very easily... i was happily just smoking up and drinking. i just have no interest in coke as i have no desire to spend lots of money on something that'll make me more lively and talkative for all of half an hour
i've got no objection to people taking coke, if it's available, people will take it, fact.
there's no question that it's demand creating supply not the other way round.
but sadly never ever gonna happen.
