Microsoft Executive Wants You to Get High :O===::~

Puff on this:

Quote
Jamen Shively, a former Microsoft executive, plans to spend the next year researching and building a retail marijuana business that he hopes will bring legitimacy to a long-illegal industry.

Shively said he brainstormed the idea after a few bong hits.

And now you know why Microsoft is so disconnected with reality sometimes~! ;D :P

*former* Microsoft executive.

If he still was executive there and people did as he, perhaps Microsoft would be in a better... state? ;-)

Perhaps... but conversely, how many times have you looked at Windows/MS X and thought are these friggin people stoned?

  I'm still pondering how they're going to settle this with the federal government.  I will assume the feds will blackmail them into submission like they did Texas over the legal age of drinking.  When the government made it so you had to be 21, Texas said "If your old enough to fight in a war, your old enough to drink" and left it at 18.  The feds (illegally) threatened to withhold federal highway funds unless Texas changed it to 21, and they caved in.....

Now that is a damn fine question.

I agree with Texas ;)

Never.

lol, I used to find that with drinking and playing pool -
there's a small window where I play absolutely super,
before and after are a bit of a disaster.
