What I do: I explore life as an adventure. I seek out awe, comedy, bewilderment, and truth. I’m a perpetual student. I aspire to be creative and inventive. My hobbies include: magic, architecture, and promoting my next epiphany.

I meet with fellow magicians and perform when I can. I plan and take trips. I have a few humanitarian projects that I work on. I the bills as a researcher.

What I’m good at. Finding the unseen. Making things. Intuiting and reading between the lines. I may not be so good at magic, but I enjoy it. Laughing at myself.

What you see: My positive attitude, patience, thoughtfulness. Visually, maybe my crazy hair, broad smile and flashing eyes!

Well stated. Trump's continued loyalty to Putin, and his profound psychopathic state represent serious challenges. Also, the way corporate interests fund and control individual politicians causes endless corruption. What is bizarre is how Trump consistently railed against the Deep State (DOJ and the intelligence agencies), but by their actions, it's clear they all turned a blind eye to myriad illegal acts committed by him and his cronies. At the same time, we should be clear-eyed that the fix is in. Biden could replace Garland at any time. The absurdly light sentences given to the sedition plotters and Jan 6 participants is sickening. Every punch that should be thrown is pulled. Biden, until demonstrating otherwise, is Trump lite. And so much more...

11 Myths And Misconceptions About Cannabis This article was originally published on Askgrowers and...
racocn8 comments on Mar 29, 2022:
As one might expect from MSN, the article is chock full of misinformation (starting with the title). Almost certainly this crap comes from NIDA, which is notorious for extremely bad, very unscientific behavior Ridiculous bullshit: "...stick to the vaporizers made available in the market by licensed cannabis manufacturers and sellers as they are bound to adhere to government-defined standards."(What standards?) "Moreover, the lab conditions are unimaginably worse at times, causing deaths due to the presence of rat poison, opioids, and animal feces in the substance." (While conceivable, vanishingly scarce if at all.) "The naturally obtained cannabis already has a balanced amount of THC and CBD compounds, saving the individuals from falling prey to contaminants. " (Nonsense. 1. wrong (no balance) and 2. non-sequitur - balance has nothing to do with contaminants) (So-called "artificial cannabis" is undefined) "Edibles Are Not As Intoxicating As Concentrates and Flower" (wrong - Most OD's come from edibles) "...edibles are safer and less psychoactive" (THC from edibles go through the liver to be metaboilized to the more potent 11-hydroxy THC). "...Another scare associated with edibles..." (not a scare, edibles are very tricky). "Moreover, the more addictive compound in cannabis, THC, is seldom present in medicinal marijuana." (1. THC is not addictive except psychologically; 2. No other compounds are even psychologicially addictive; 3. THC is almost always present in medicinal marijuana; 4. the term is cannabis, not the pejorative term "marijuana") And on and on. This is truly disgusting propaganda which extends cannabis criminalization's racist roots. @glennlab

What will the USA outcome be for cannabis using and growing?
racocn8 comments on Mar 29, 2022:
The California Cannabis Deregulation Debacle (A recent blog post) In November 2016, California voters approved Proposition 64 with the intention of making recreational marijuana legal. Yet today, about 80-90% of the cannabis market operates underground which is to say most cannabis continues to be bought from sellers that don’t abide by the regulations. Proposition 64 also gave municipalities the authority to ban cannabis stores, regardless of the medical or recreation needs of their citizens. Indeed, despite legalization, most counties and cities continue to forbid the sale of cannabis. After the voters passed what they believed was legalization, Governor Newsom signed laws creating the Department of Cannabis Control (DCC). The government claimed that this agency would make cannabis purchases safe. However, the legislation also levied taxes on every step of the supply chain: cannabis growing, cannabis selling, and manufacturing of cannabis edibles. The DCC also claimed authority to license retailers, growers, distributors, delivery companies, testing labs and related microbusinesses. To understand the injustice of this legalization, recall how cannabis came to be illegal. Going back to 1930, Harry Anslinger began a campaign to condemn the use of cannabis. Anslinger developed stories of dubious veracity that suggested that cannabis caused violence and other immoral acts. His stories often contained racist themes: “Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men.” In 1937, Congress passed the Marijuana Tax Act which criminalized cannabis. Thus, those seeking to make cannabis illegal knew that giving Blacks and Hispanics felony records would remove them from the voting rolls. Millions of people ended up being locked up for decades, often for nothing more than possessing small amounts of cannabis. Such laws provide a classic example of the structural racism referred to by Critical Race Theory (CRT). To the extent that White society excluded non-Whites from participating in the legal economy, many non-Whites survived by selling whisky or cannabis. The sale of cannabis by the poor continues to the present day. In 1996, California voters approved Prop 215 which legalized the medical use of cannabis by patients with a doctor's recommendation. Thus, cannabis moved from fully illegal, to being arguably legal. Police evaded the law by forming task forces with the Federal DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). Also, police continued to disproportionately arrest non-Whites. Political backlash noted that the Whites that got arrested had more financial resources to fight the charges, and benefitted from sympathetic juries. In 2011, a court ruled that a local government seeking to regulate weed could be viewed as being complicit...

We need to think harder about how to change ourselves from within.

Someone beyond me makes sense of the Ukrainian nazism propaganda.
racocn8 comments on Mar 27, 2022:
Thanks. Great summary. Per Wiki: "(The) Azov Battalion (until September 2014), is a neo-Nazi former paramilitary group that is now a unit of the National Guard of Ukraine, (and) based in Mariupol, in the Azov Sea coastal region. Azov formed as a volunteer militia in May 2014, and has since been fighting Russian separatist forces in the Donbas War. It first saw combat recapturing Mariupol from pro-Russian separatists in June 2014. It initially operated as a volunteer police company, until it was formally incorporated into the National Guard on 11 November 2014. In March 2022, the battalion gained renewed attention during the Siege of Mariupol for its role in the defense of the city. " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azov_Battalion Thus, this deputized militia has been effective in countering Putin's ambitions for some years now. Their presence in Mariupol may also explain why Mariupol has been leveled. As Putin seeks to take control of the Donbas region, the Azov militias are fighting on the front lines to stop him. Both parties hold degenerate values, but the Azov is a minority in Ukraine. It's notable to recall how the US supported Saddam Hussein in his war with Iran. Losses on either side being viewed as not regrettable. The US even gave tactical information to Hussein knowing that the information would be used to target Iranian forces with chemical weapons. Regarding use of chemical weapons, the US hands are already dirty. We now see the consequences.

racocn8 comments on Mar 27, 2022:
I am not fond of the idea of dying, much less being flash roasted. But, we all die and have no power to stop it. I had a period of severe paranoia about it when Reagan put Pershing missiles in Europe. The main thing is that there isn't much to destroy in Ukraine. Right now, the only target of value is Kiev, and if it were destroyed, it would be seen as a act of petulant revenge rather than military strategy. The Russians don't really have much they can do that isn't a war crime or crime against humanity. They've expended significant effort to pretend they weren't responsible for the use of gas in Syria. There'd be no covering this up and no drowning demands for regime change (no end to sanctions).

The anti-abortion movement taught Christians to hate doctors and medical science, including bombing clinics and killing doctors. Knowing Evangelicals made up his base, and being an asshole, Trump sought to downplay Covid, saying it was just a cold. Instead, he tried to make money off it, investing in people who promised a test, but couldn't deliver. His delays and petulant defiance set the country to be hit hard. Then he politicized mask wearing. Even out of office, his minions flooded the Internet with misinformation about the vaccines. It was always all about money and power. A million people died for his greed. And a million grieving families have been told to blame the democrats and scientists. Yeah, it's all Fauci's fault.

racocn8 comments on Mar 26, 2022:
excerpting: " I don’t believe.’ Period. It’s a declaration. But in science we don’t really do declarations. We say, ‘Okay, you can have a hypothesis, you have to have some evidence against or for that.’ " Gleiser is contriving a distinction where there is none (except for the hard or strong atheists). That's because Gleiser doesn't see religion as a bad alternative to science. He gives religion a pass as so many people do in order to preserve their social standing. Actually, Gleiser is projecting, and has it upside down and backwards. It is religionists who espouse beliefs that are disproved by science, as we know only too well. Religionists can only be scientists if they completely wall off and segregate their beliefs from their science. How can one search for answers when all the answers you'll ever need are in this or that holy book? Show me a competent scientist who combines their idiotic superstitions with their research.

racocn8 comments on Mar 26, 2022:
The information about Sativa vs. Indica may be flawed. In the literature, Indica contain elevated levels of CBD and the CBD provided the anxiolytic effect. However, 12 years ago I surveyed all the Indica available in the area and found that they had all been bred to produce THC with occasional traces of CBD remaining. Being labeled as Indica is not a reliable for containing CBD. One may consult the analysis (COA) if one has been done.
