100 years old and the government says its dangerous...fuck them right?
"Albert Hofmann (January 11, 1906 - April 29, 2008) was a Swiss scientist best known for having been the first to synthesize, ingest and communicate the strong hallucinogenic effects of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Hofmann authored more than 100 scientific articles and wrote a number of books, including LSD: My Problem Child. On January 11, 2006, Hofmann became a centenarian, and the occasion of his 100th birthday was the focus of an international symposium on LSD."

After reading about the large protests and disturbances that accompanied the Olympic torch in London and Paris. I was wondering if it is acceptable to use the Olympics as a political weapon? I mean the games are about sporting achievement and overall goodwill, not foreign policy or politics. Of course China has a humans rights problem, but are the Olympics the best way to put attention on the matter? I don't know, my only answer now would be maybe....thats it...maybe.

Now Lindsey Lohan is not exactly the most talented actress, singer, or person, but she is sexy and she did pose nude in the New York magazine (i think it is). Anyways...well thats it, pretty cool and the fact that it is based off of Marylin Monroe's photo shoot is also cool.
So i might of committed a few felony's on Feb . 5 th when i voted in the San Francisco primary, but enough about that. The important thing is i have decided to back Obama, mostly because i think Hilary comes off as a bitch and i believe that she is the benign candidate and won't really get anything done. What she does have going for her is Bill, but then again some of the things Bill did i don't agree with, and its not the Monica issue. So i've decided to go for Barack Obama for president and you should too. Or don't, i really don't care, the problems in this country take up a large list, and the most poignant one is getting past the last 50 years and getting ready for the next 50.

Me and my friends are watching Death Proof and raise the debate on whether or not you can compare Death Proof to Planet Terror. They are completely different movies, with different plots, characters, and themes. Yet they are shown at the same time. Can you compare the two or is wrong to do so?

We can now continue with our debate on who the next president will be. Obama? Hil-Dog? Old Man McCain? Ron Paul? Romney?
So far i have no idea who i am going to vote for. I might just not vote, because the last two elections that i voted in....things haven't exactly turned out that great.
An article i thought interresting i found in the SF Chronicle about the food source for very poor Hatians...Mud.
"The mud has long been prized by pregnant women and children here as an antacid and source of calcium. But in places like Cite Soleil, the oceanside slum where Charlene shares a two-room house with her baby, five siblings and two unemployed parents, cookies made of dirt, salt and vegetable shortening have become a regular meal." (Jonathan M. Katz)
*This is one of those instances i feel that the U.S. is obligated to intervene. ( It might even cut back on our obesity problem)

A news report from the Portland Press Herald
"Organic Gardening Magazine named Portland the top green city of its size in the United States, city officials announced today.
The magazine cited Portland's plentiful parks and trails, as well as its climate protection agreement, anti-idling ordinance and use of biodiesel for city-owned vehicles.
Portland's category included cities with fewer than 150,000 people.
Organic Gardening confirms what those who call Portland home already know: This is a great, healthy and clean city for people to live, work and play," said City Manager Joseph Gray Jr.
Other cities recognized by the magazine include Burlington, Vt.; Fargo, N.D.; Sioux Falls, S.D. and Billings, Mont.
The magazine ranked cities based on data from Earthday Network's Urban Environmental Report. Categories included water quality, green space, percentages of residents who walk, bicycle or use public transit, availability of locally grown food and commitment to climate-change policy."
