Maybe, just maybe, it's all over the place because the designers thought it looked cool. Occam's razor, folks. This. Not this. This is an opinion one might arrive at through assumption without doing enough research. It has meaning, and most often it is subtly referenced in places relevant to the ce...

Higher education does open doors, yes. But there is always the basement window :P Or the option of just kicking the door in :P :P

Besides, what really counts is what you do once your inside :P :P :P

But there are no long term issues with marijuana, so how is it unhealthy? Inhaling smoke in to your lungs will always do bad things for your breathing. True. Vaporizers are a little better, but ganja butter and green dragon are healtiest alternatives. Still, there is a certain charm to smoking a jo...

Reality means more than ideals ever will. If reality doesn't fit the ideals, that's tough sh** for idealists. Idealists have been changing reality since forever (not always for the best, either). Only to an extent. An idealist can not change human nature, and human nature is not a pleasant thing. I...

Good point. Idealists are an engine of social change.

I guess the reason cynics and misanthropes annoy me is because I think their pessimism is limiting to our species. Like the more cynics there are, the less chance there is at disarmament, or conquering disease, or a variety of problems we could solve if we were a bit more idealistic. Reality means ...

I strongly agree with pretty much everything CrazyCatLord has posted in this thread. I think what people call cynicism is really just a realistic, neutral viewpoint about the world; seeing things for what they are, not affected by the irrational optimism that most people have. And I don't think cyn...

Great way to get your ads talked about in advertising, great way to look 'edgy' if you're MTV, Gaga, or Nikki. I`ve considered this too, but it doesn`t explain why it can be found in so many other areas over such a long period of time. Since most people don't even recognize Masonic symbols, what's ...

As long as we don't allow our idealism to contradict human nature, that can only lead to disaster. We must expect people to act like they have since the dawn of time. Disarmament is impossible, there will always be groups of people willing to seize power. It's a fact of life that ruthlessness and a...

The base of faith is believeing with out seeing the base of no faith is believeing only what you can see or have proof of. So why not have faith in Brahma? Or faith in Yog-Sothoth? According to some Gnostics Yaweh was most likely the Demiurge, and putting faith in the Demiurge was the path to spiri...

and from what I've seen people typically get more messed up on alcohol than cannabis. What attitude is it you can't identify with? I don't identify with an outspoken desire to unnecessarily ingest behavior-altering substances for the sole purpose of enjoyment. I'm not saying its wrong, but I am say...

"hiding"? No. Including? Yes. The one on the 1000yen bill is hidden. On the back of the bill is Mt. Fuji, holding it up to the light it overlaps with the eye in the center. There are hidden references on magazine covers, advertisements, everywhere. So "hiding"? Yes. Hiding in plain sight. I find it...

The most obvious being the US dollar, but you can see it hidden in movies, advertisements, architecture etc. MTV is full of it, on the one hand I used to theorize they did it as a publicity stunt, but that doesn't explain why it is found in so many places. I was recently shown a hidden Eye of Provi...

If weed were legal, corporations would put middle-class drug dealers out of business with their mass produced, logistically optimal weed.

If it were legal people would probably be growing it at home and sharing with friends free of charge.

It should be illegal because Jesus says so. Jesus never spoke about drugs in any of his teaches or sermons. Not true: And Jesus thus spake: "Do not sample of the tree of divinity, for that is for those who have American'd themselveths in the Way of Rand to the position of one percenth. In other wor...
