 So yeah, now that Update is on hiatus there's really nothing interesting left on this website and no reason for me to be here. I'll still prob hang out on irc from time to time, most of the people I care about here are there. If/when Update comes back I'll return ofc. But until then bye, its been nice[ish].

Grumps and Opebo, allow me to come in defense of Torie and the mods.  As he and I both stated before he had nothing to do with the Update closure and only thought keeping it closed would be best.  He gave me no ultimatums except agreeing with Inks that continual locking and unlocking would be hit as trolling.

What the devil is wrong with these people?  Pure harassment.

Yup. Despite their protests, even Bushie admits that Torie and the others threatened to ban him if he didn't keep it closed.

Its odd that they just blatantly lie about it.

Mods (normal)

Nobody else will own up to financial and weight issues? Those are big things I struggle with. I would think those would be very common problems. Or are they simply more taboo than the more vague angst we have seen so far?

This is a forum of teenage rich kids, ofc that won't be an issue (speaking as one of those teenage rich kids).

Depends on whether this is just "living together" or includes fornication as is usually implied.

Not sure if I've ever smelled it.

Have u ever smelled a dead skunk on the highway?

No, but I have read posts by someone who appears to have the intelligence of a dead skunk.

Been a topic of discussion in so many other threads, it deserves it's own poll.

One of the best <3 :)

Also, this:
The problem I have with tobacco that makes it so much different from other drugs is it's so pointless. It just makes you smell bad and kills your lungs. That's it. No cool highs or hallucinations or nice effects from it. Get high all you inksing want and I don't care but there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to smoke cigarettes. The only reason people smoke is because of marketing and making it "cool" to get them started and hooked. None of that would happen if it wasn't legal. The only reason there's a tobacco black market now is people who are already hooked want to buy it cheaper. There's a reason why in the last 40 years tobacco consumption has halved, while marijuana and alcohol consumption rates have basically remained the same.

There's a reason why the US and Canada have virtually identical marijuana and alcohol consumption rates, but in the US tobacco has about a 20% higher tobacco consumption rate. In addition to Canadian tobacco taxes being far higher than just about anywhere in the US the packaging and marketing is far more restricted.

Most smartly governed, modern countries have decreasing rates of tobacco use. The US has a higher rate because the US sucks at that sort of thing.

As for your stylishly idiotic first paragraph, I'd submit to you that you don't know what the hell you're talking about. I said earlier that the psychoactive chemicals in tobacco are fascinating and I stand by that. They are subtle - and they can produce different characteristics based on the way you smoke. The real kicker is in conjunction with other drugs - a lot of people who only smoke when they drink alcohol can attest to that. Smoking when you've had weed can bring on awful dizziness and headspins, it can reinvigorate a waning high, or it can just make you feel as mellow as hell. A smoke on mushrooms or acid feels beautiful in ways you have to experience to understand (although that is true of most things one might do on shrooms or acid). A smoke after DXM can make you vomit or give your body high a new potency. I've never done coke but from observation smoking after doing a line is the best. A smoke after sex is a perfect combination for the little high you feel after orgasm. A smoke you have after waiting a long time for a cigarette feels completely different from the way a cigarette feels to a chain smoker. A smoke after your morning coffee is relaxing and stimulating simultaneously. If you think cigarettes have no value and don't do anything nice or fun you have no idea what you're talking about.

Don't get me wrong - I don't even like that I am a smoker. I do indeed hardly feel anything after I have a cigarette besides relief that I just had one. It is certainly some dumb sh**t that I can't seem to just not do it again. Nevertheless, the assertion that nicotine and friends in tobacco have zero real recreational use is just flat out wrong.

And Oak Hills, smoking as an activity is most certainly a "cool" thing. Sucking in plumes of visible gas from an object on fire mere inches from your face and exhaling clouds is a spectacle. The ramifications of smoking are the complete opposite of cool - but the singular act of smoking is quite neat. In fact, you saying that it isn't cool actually makes it even cooler - nice work. If smoking caused no real, bad health effects, you would probably agree with me. Even so, just because something is "cool" doesn't disqualify it from being absolutely awful.

Marijuana obviously. It actually has a purpose and is basically harmless, unlike tobacco, which is disgusting, harmful and absolutely useless.

Going back to the JFK kerfuffle:

Max, I understand your grandma's predicament during JFK's presidency, but to be frank...there are other ways of viewing a Presidency. My grandmother is currently living on foodstamps and medicare, and that does not greatly alter my view of Obama. Granted, I dislike Obama to begin with, but the fact that my grandmother is not financially stable is not the President's fault. JFK prevented WWIII, he didn't cause it. His willingness to approach the Cuban Missile Crisis in the diplomatic fashion that he did ultimately spared the world of a global conflict. Did he nearly drop the ball on it? Sure. But you can't say Nixon would have handled it better, and I'd go far enough to say that a Nixon presidency in 1960 would have caused WWIII without a doubt. JFK was President for just under 3 years, so he didn't have the opportunity to enact a full-scale plan to increase the United States' economic standing. TLDR, you cannot blame JFK for your grandmother's unfortunate situation, just like I can't blame Obama for my grandmother's unfortunate situation. You have to look at the presidency as a whole, and JFK did more good than harm in the short time he was President.
I'm not judging his presidency on my grandmothers circumstances. Just making a comparision that I find amusing. I have plenty of reasons why I think Kennedy was a horrible President; in fact, I am writing an English paper on the subject that is coming up due soon.

This ain't the place to debate Kennedy, but I am a Nixon buff and I am quite sure that he would have handled everything better, as vile and disgusting as he was.

Anyway, here is a gem from BRTD. I'm not ant-pot, I just despise BRTD's logic.

Marijuana obviously. It actually has a purpose and is basically harmless, unlike tobacco, which is disgusting, harmful and absolutely useless.

You got a pretty small bracket of people from which to draw your "yes" votes.

yeah, I don't think there are that many christian music fans here

 Not an opebo worshiper, but the sentiment behind this post is correct. I don't understand people for whom the collection of characters and weirdos isn't a significant part of why they come here.
