The hardcore addicts buy drugs from the next town which may be cheaper, and in a quantity where they can flip part of it to cover the cost of their own habit..

NOT unlike Geekhackers who run groupbuys..

So they're accepting retailer/ distribution risks.

Which honestly is minimal, because the worst thing in their life is the drug habit itself, the segment of risk related to incarceration pales in comparison to the greater harm in parallel. 

This of course is a zero-sum operation to manage. Not recommended

I would like to m0re go Outside.

On the one hand.

I am an iconic model of -loneliness-; I recognize and accept that to remain so, puts me at statistically-significant greater mortality risk..

But upon actual attempts of the extracurricular,  I simply don't enjoy the majority of a multiplayer human experience ..

It's like you go online w/ CS-Go,  and most of it is just people yelling and talking-subject which extends from their insecurities.. -which is neither interesting nor consequential-

Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I made a resolution many years ago to not make any more resolutions.

I have kept to that one so far.

My resolution is to be more open minded. I have been quite closed minded about a lot of things in the past, like what cars I like, bands and artists, films and TV shows. My pledge this year is to revisit some of those choices and re-evaluate them, maybe change my mind, and maybe to like more things that I do already.
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Never been one for New Years resolutions but I made a couple to myself this year.

Stop smoking tobacco - have managed it so far.

Smoke less weed - have managed this pretty well, probably because I usually smoke spliffs with tobacco in and so no tobacco means less craving for spliffs.

Keyboard spending is way up tho.

It's much less harmful than previously thought.

The probability that smoking -Kills- is actually primarily due to cancer risk amplified by Eating animal products.

The smoking begins the DNA damage, resulting in the micro-tumors.  But it's the animal products with its massive dose of growth hormones and contaminants which CULTURES and grows full blown Cancer.


There are areas of tibet where there is significant late age lung problems due to their cultivation and Use of Unfiltered tobacco, but almost Zero lung cancers, because their diet is mainly plant based.


Animal products amplify cancer growth for ALL cancers..

Aw cheers u guys. It's funny cos after all the health warnings and horror stories the thing that's probably gonna really make me stop is the price hikes and the banning of small packs.  Can't just get a little pack for the pub anymore. Makes all the difference. It's those packs that are the thin end of the wedge when quitting is going pretty good.

Don't want to say yes.. because It is counter to life-span optimization.

However,  it's involvement in disease is greatly over-stated.



The more relevant drawback to smoking is Mental-Satiety..

Much like Pot-smokers,   Tobacco- Smokers also experience diminished life satisfaction.

This is due to raising dopamine baselines , the common theme among all drugs and inebriation.


Now,  if a person has diminished life-satisfaction, how does it impact his world view, what might he do.

-- Generally, such a person engages in riskier hedonistic behaviors.

-- This person's wife may suddenly be not good looking enough.

-- He might even indulge in the thrill of infidelity.

-- Keep going in this direction long enough, and it reduces potential lifespan.

--   Person catches a disease,  wife takes the kids,  depression,  drinking,   cheeseburger, fried chicken..

--   Soon, Person circles the drain.

However,  it's involvement in disease is greatly over-stated.
Sorry, I feel like I should stop you right there. It stops being funny when you start saying stuff like this. Smoking has caused so many horrible deaths it's unbelievable. If you don't know a lot of smokers you probably won't know, but when you lose a few of them to esophagal or lung cancer it's pretty obvious.

Does it have a ROLE in cancer.  Yes.

But that cancer is primarily ACCELERATED by an animal products based diet .


T colin campbell (National Institute of Health Researcher) was researching a liver cancer outbreak in south east asia.


Their initial hypothesis was that these kids weren't eating enough protein.

They eventually tracked it down to crops contaminated with Aflatoxin.

Little children getting cancer.


But what was odd was, the children of the Poor, who ate the same contaminated crops had a significantly reduced rate of cancer.

The majority of the children who developed cancer were among the wealthy families.

The kids who had all the meat and milk..


This lead to the initial revelation that animal protein rich foods was an accelerant for cancer growth.


In laboratory testing, it was possible to increase OR decrease cancer cell replication rate by changing the quantity of Milk-Protein fed to mice.

Mice fed 20% casein protein, representing the typical western diet, had significantly higher cancer cell growth rate.

Mice fed 5% casein protein, had flat line, NO growth.



It's also not a coincidence that Every longest living communities in the world ate a diet typically 90%+ of plants.




Smoking gets the cancer started,  but it's the really the Meat and Milk which ultimately Grows it into Uncontrollable death.
