Nope. Due to it being illegal, there is relatively little research, at least proportionate to it’s global use. I smoked for well over a year and noticed definite differences, as have thousands of others. Consistent (ab)use may be the key factor.

"there is little research" does not support the statement that "saying it’s harmless is simply wrong"

and again, if you’re being hyper literal then yeah. consistent abuse of hamburgers will cause bad stuff to happen to you but I would still say that hamburgers are harmless

To say it’s harmless is simply wrong. I am pro legalization, though, like I am with most drugs.

maybe if you’re being hyper literal?

when there are close to no reports of harm being caused by it, i think ‘harmless’ is a decent word to use there

Alien 1: and how are the humans reacting to the all-purpose miracle plant we left during our last visit? you know the harmless plant that can be used for recreational pleasure as well as food, cloth, paper, fuel, therapy, relaxation or medicine?
Alien 2: yeah they made it illegal and now it’s at the root of thousands of incarcerations and violent organized crime
Alien 1: -_-

What do you think is it about Tumblr that attracts such ridiculously oversensitive people?

self-fulfilling prophecy

i don’t think it “attracts” oversensitive people, it breeds oversensitive people.

trigger warnings and angry anons and snarky reblogs creates this culture where people expect everyone to protect their innocent little eyes and if they find something they deem offensive they feel like they have the right to trash that person in front of everyone else until they delete their blog

its the exact opposite over on /b/. since /b/ and 4chan is ‘anything goes’, people will make fun of you if you are oversensitive, so that ends up breeding trolls and instigators trying to out-shock everyone, just because that’s the culture.

also teenagers

The proud family was such a dope show. there very few black shows that aren’t completely whitewashed or just altogether hard to relate to and the ones that arent are relegated to BET or like the ‘urban’ block on The CW or something. and even if you didn’t know it, you can tell this show was made by black people because while many of the characters were exaggerated and silly, they were all true to life and based on real archetypes of black culture.

the-unstoppable-juggernaut:

i’m concerned about tumblr sometimes

cuz folks be making posts that glorifies damaging, negative, possibly even abusive behavior specifically in romantic relationships. And then others cosign that shit. like thousands, sometimes hundreds of thoudsands.

Being obssessed with someone isn’t cute

Being very jealous of your gf/bf isn’t cute

not thinking your good enough/being very insecure isn’t cute

but yet i see posts like these with support ALL the time.

stop that shit

its not just romantic relationships. i see posts here that romanticize victimhood and drama in general all the time

Why the fuck are you defending Sam Pepper?

3 Reasons this question will be mostly disregarded/not taken seriously.

1. You opened the conversation by swearing at me, indicating that you don’t actually care about having a meaningful or thoughtful discussion

2. you’re anonymous, meaning you don’t have the courage to put a name behind your opinions (so why should I take them seriously)

3. you have made an accusation that is not supported by anything that actually happened in reality

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information, including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.

Have looked into Lethal League any? What do you think about it?

never played it, it looks really cool and fun but seems like it could get random and not very competitive (which is what i like in fighting games)

WWE should get rid of the entire concept of Money in the Bank altogether

so dumb

I would need more context for the word. Dragging through the mud is to talk negatively about someone, though.

its a term i see on tumblr and twitter a lot, I think it’s a black people thing

what does “dragging” mean

is it just like “saying negative things?”

the female body is hardcore as fuck. 

Yes is it.

so is the male body
it’s sad to see so many people like this on this website


OP is praising the fact that women hold a fucking infant in their belly the size of a ribcage, get the fuck over yourself for 3.5 seconds.

*~*~follow for more fragile male ego~*~*

The male body is more susceptible to hereditary diseases because of their lack of a second X chromosome. Their testosterone production ages them faster and causes them to die sooner. Their center of gravity is higher because of their tiny little hips and overgrown shoulders, making them easier to topple. Their gonads are placed outside of the body, in a very vulnerable position, because they do not function properly if they get a little bit warmer than usual. They have non-functional nipples, but still enough breast tissue to get cancer.The male body is not hardcore. The male body is to the female body what a shoddy, unstable mod is to a well-estabilished piece of software. Sit the fuck down. And try to not crush your fragile pathetic outside gonads when you do it.

I’m always confused at the randomness with which people decide to show outrage at something. Sam Pepper’s whole YouTube channel is prank videos, i.e videos in which he fucks with people. Like about 90% of his videos are videos in which he violates personal space, freaks people out, distrubs people, makes people uncomfortable. in several of his videos he literally convinced people that their lives were in danger. He’s even already made videos where he touches and pokes strangers. All his videos get millions of views, did we just miss all of those? The video where he pinches butts should get him reported, but not the one where he makes the guys in his backseat think they’re about to get shot because of a botched drug deal?

I’ve never been a fan of prank videos because I think they are fucked up, but they are quite popular, as noted by the fact that Sam has over 2 million subscribers. So I just assumed that we were okay with them. But apparently we arent? Or maybe we’re only opposed to pranks that involve violating women. But the ones where he draws airsoft guns on people or randomly grabs dudes in the street are okay?
