    your post is anti-semantic.

    My latte is really burning my sinuses right now.

    I had a couple last year, as these were a long-time favorite treat… but either they’ve changed, or I’ve changed, because they are almost sick-sweet to me now. They used to be minty like Breyer’s ice cream – mint without huge sugary flavor.

    Harrumph!

    Getting these as a kid was always a real treat because they were so rare. The last time I did have one however, I felt like I was going to go into a diabetic coma.

    Now I just do smoothies and Jeni’s ice cream. ;-)

    +1 The wife knows how much I like(d) them, and brought one home for me last week. I had about a third of it, and tossed the rest. I don’t want whipped cream and cherries and extra-bright-green food coloring, I just want the same shake I waited all year for in the ’80s.

    Arby’s makes a competing mint shake that is better than the new Shamrock.

    The guys a couple houses down from my old place on 1st made the mistake of letting Tim sleep on their porch furniture. I think they may have given him some odd jobs too. After that he kinda made 1st Ave. his home. He always seemed like a nice guy to me, when he wasn’t walking down the sidewalk having angry conversations with himself. Then he repeatedly threatened the pregnant lady across the street with assault. The police responded to THOSE events, to keep her husband from assaulting HIM.

    Once you or your address are on his radar – good or bad – be ready for regular encounters. He’s clearly got mental health issues, and should be politely avoided by anyone opposed to the possibility of a pleasant panhandling suddenly turning into a shoving match.

    Anybody have a link to articles about when the state shut down the asylums in the ’90s and dropped the patients off downtown?

    Sure, that was peak-zombie craze.

    I dunno… that show has only gotten more and more popular.

    I was into zombies before it was cool- acquired and customized my first zombie/ninja deterrent machete in around 1985. Now that zombies are so last Tuesday, my gear should come in handy for battling the hordes of bearded hipsters in bad plaid shirts overwhelming civilization.

    I would like to see him compress the display so it complies with letter of the law, and then see what the crybabies try to do about it.

    I want to apologize to the gallery for my response to the failed vote, I got to smoke on it and digest all the news and I know now that even though it still sucks balls so bad it shows up on Doppler radar as a low pressure system, I know something will pass.

    Meh, the one consolation I take from this is picturing the tokers who voted against it getting busted for possession at traffic stops or intent after a trip to Garden Indoors. If they’re so confident they can get something better passed, they could have just included provisions to undo Issue 3’s monopoly.

    Now the Legislature will dick around with legalizing medical to undermine next year’s efforts, and maybe eventually pass something super-restrictive to take the compassion vote away from any future legalization effort.

    So, what’s the over/under on the number of posts we’ll see on the forum from Discouraged Democrat after this week?

    I think your 20th birthday must be coming up. Otherwise, why 19? 18 is adult in the US, 21 is drinking age, 19 is…?

    People worry too much about this so called monopoly. We would be allowed to keep 4 flowering plants at a time so I’ve no worries about keeping a supply on hand. In a couple years the market will be flooded with high quality weed with or without the monopoly. I know I’ll be growing my own.

    I was initially excited about this too, until I noticed the required registration. Let me just sign myself right up on a list of Federal criminals for the ATF to descend upon if the wrong person gets into the White House, one which would also be subject to FoI requests for publication, outing growers to their neighbors- both stodgy and shady, and creating possible professional issues.

    I’m still voting For, but my dreams of cross-pollinating weed with corn to produce a THC-laden Dorito that would create a self-stroking frenzy of consumption that could rip a hole in the space-time continuum have been dashed.

    Y’all seem to be missing the point, you include a little something-something for the rural vote and this bill has a much better chance of succeeding. Oh wait, you dont’ give 2 shits about the rural vote…

    The grow sites (and their jobs) will be in rural areas, and if rural communities allow them, so will a lot of the shops. As was stated elsewhere, this amendment is about marijuana; saying hemp should be part for the same legislation is like saying a bill on lawncare products should also cover wheat production. Not that I wouldn’t want to see hemp legalized, but that is literally a whole other subject.

    And I’m first generation off the farm, so the forgotten farmers lament doesn’t fly.
