Work XMAS party

So, at work on Friday I wa bitching at the 3 other new guys, since they weren't coming to the XMAS party. I'm like, damnit, don't leave me to sit with Rick (the older excentric engineer who sits across from me.)

After slowly talking Dani into coming with me; we were a bit late because of the god awful border, but in time for the food! :) Carlos welcomed me to sit at his table with Jerry (the other manager, funny guy), another tech, and.. not Rick, but Rick Jr.

Good times all round; after 4 drinks and Dani's suggestion, I danced to Stevie Wonder's classic wedding/party tune.

I shook hands with the VP of Link, and he's like "glad to have you here. HR gave me a lot of shit to get you hired on, but I told them, you work for me, not the other way around." Heh. :)

The other day at lunch, the other guy who was hired on around the same time as me, noted that he had to take his drug test before he was actually hired (a good sign, ofcourse, as they doubt they waste the money for someone they aren't strongly considering.)

Anyway... I told him it was good that he took the drug test then, and not after his trip to Amsterdam he left for the next day.

Amsterdam rules! :)

Gov. Mitt Romney meets a medical marijuana patient

The policies of the US federal government are often strange grandfathered laws, policies made often based on personal political gains rather than to make a "better" society.

Anyhoo, I can't attest to marijuana's "healing" nature, besides the fact it does work well for stomach ache / nausea (after all, marijuana in some form is often prescribed to cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.)

It seems to me a herb that you cannot overdose on (unlike almost every other legal medication, including alcohol and cigs.), logically, should not be classified in the same class as a hard narcotic. In most countries, including Canada, it isn't. In the US, however...

Then again, I guess that's just American culture thing, you could argue. Paranoia based on lies seems to go along very well with some logic. Perhaps if I was a religious person, and did things the bible and preacher told me to, I might see things differently.

To me, it seems most of the politicians there are very conservative, religious men, where religion/how they are brought up, is more important than what is actually correct (science.)

This guy is an example :)

The US should invest all the money they have in "the War on Drugs" into increased funding for children, runaways, mental health, and how about.. better gun control. Perhaps that would have prevented the most recent shooting spree.

"The War on Guns".. I don't think that would make very much sense. Heh.

Marijuana? No way! Sex on television! No way! Tons of guns, everyone should own a gun, violence everywhere! Yep!
