On The Grand Tour, tv show, ( old top gear trio ) on one of their American stops, the host comments on British Speed Cameras, and jokes America doesn't have them, because we'd just shoot them.

I remember Jay Leno saying that on the old version of the show. He was the "Star in a reasonably priced car" part of the show. He had a four page list of all of Jay's cars. Great episode.

The Emperor of New York had his coronation speech, and promised legal pot. And! That he was going to tax it, but hopefully not enough to drive the black market. ( which will be illegal, but with pot legal, the consumer just has to not get caught actually buying from street dealers ) And! Promised a gazillion dollars for him to spend on those who pleased him.

What is going to happen, is Pot Uber. You get a ride to the grocery store & score a lid at the same time. ( it's been a century since high school, I don't remember what a lid is. : ) )

I wish I could patent that.

The Left has coined the notion of the dog whistle as coded racist language that they define, simply, as anything their enemies say.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog-whistle_politi cs

Thus, "I like my job" REALLY MEANS you are racist, because only Whites like to work.

Yeah, the racism built into that is so freaking obvious. Leftists really buy into the Klan stereotype of non-whites, that hard, that deep.

But, to be fair, I've applied a similar filter in my understanding of people. It's the Canary principle. Like canaries carried in cages into the coal mines, to warn of pockets of deadly gas, by falling over, the way groups and leaders treat Jews tells me when people are evil F$%&s that need to be considered threats to civilization.

Pogroms in Russia, Death camps in Germany, BDS in Boston, Mullahs in Iran, Democrats in Congress, the greens in Constantinople. ( ok, that last one isn't taught in grade school..... Neither are the rest, today )

Admittedly, normally a single metric judgement system is inherently flawed. But 6000 years or so of example, from Pharaohs to Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, prove to me it's a useful, and accurate one.

"First, they came for the Jews........"

Back to coffee cans. They used to have a plastic lid that resealed your coffee in. Put your pot in the coffee can. A "lid" from it held the amount of pot you would sell. This was in the days prior to everyone having portable scales to weigh a sandwich baggy of pot. BONUS: in the days before ziploc bags, they would roll the bag with pot in it and lick the flap to stick the bag shut.



First time I saw it sold on a lid the price was $5.00.

Thanks! I'd long forgotten the price structure. Back in High school some kid told me he was saving his cash for a "lid" and had to ask what system of measures it was. ; ) Didn't sound Metric, so I assumed it was some weird English thing like furlongs per fortnight or grains.

The "take a lap" course for gym at school followed the school grounds perimeter past the woods behind the school. 1/4 mile iirc. There was a dip that put you out of sight by the woods, and kids would stop and smoke or just rest a few minutes, while some would keep an eye out for the coach to come roust them. Most of us would just keep running, punch through the cloud of smoke, and keep the illusion of exercise going. # of laps depended on Coaches mood.

Coach "tuffy buns" Bayer. Break an arm, and "toughy buns! Take a lap!" . He wasn't really that bad but he reveled in the reputation.

I think most coaches had more reputation than bite. I was too small to play football. Coach made me a trainer.

Jog a mile was my track coach's remedy for whatever ailed you.

Someday, ask me about the time I pulled a back muscle and he told me to put some heat on it. It's a funny story.

Sure, but what's a dime bag cost these days. Or has it just gotten smaller?

I'll ask my next Uber driver.

I will be visiting the new retail outlets, if only to find Christmas presents. ; ) ( in California they rivaled Amazon for Christmas sales )

A buddy in college worked at a local amusement park. A head shop was across the street. Every payday he bought another bong. Every different version of one brand name, all colorful wood & plastic.

Decades later, he had them all on display, spotless, on High shelves in his den. He's a Physicist, and calls it his relativity display. He had calculated in the intervening years what motorcycle or car he could have bought instead. Once he told me that if he'd bought CDs that shelf was a BMW M5.

He got the idea from a investment radio show that told him that buying a Mercedes at age 45 was equal to a million dollars at retirement if invested in the Market.

He still has his Honda 360.

( Great timing on this editorial )

A preview of how lot legalization will work in New York doesn't need looking at crime rates in Colorado or California. Local reality is adequate.

Tobacco is highly taxed and regulated. In the big cities truck loads of illegal cigarettes are brought in and sold through the Mafia ( an imaginary group of civic supporters ) but in rural NY, people smuggle their addictive drugs from PA or from the islands of Native American foreign countries. Next to the casino, there is a strip of tobacco shops. On Reservations without?

I went deer hunting last year, not to shoot, but as physical therapy from knee surgery. Oh, I'd have taken a shot, but I was really there so a buddy's son could have a shot on my doe tag. ( hunting is better regulated than heroin in NY ) We had invitations to hunt on land next to the Reservation, and while there was no Casino, there was a halo of tobacco shops, miles deep, along the border with a major highway. A constant stream of customers buying a half dozen or more cartons, often, ( I asked ) for family and friends in loose, unofficial confederations of otherwise law abiding Americans of middle income. Heartening to a Libertarian, the number of scofflaws going miles to defeat a law.

The kid got his doe. The chili was delicious.

In the mid 70s Texas, a lid was an ounce.
Interesting coffee can reference but that looks like a LOT more than an Oz.
Never understood why they were "lids".

Once had a bong hit of Acapulco Gold at a lab TA's place.
Got so disoriented I hugged the porcelain god.

Remind me to tell you about Mombasa, Kenya.
Or Singapore.
