    November

    Not for the people fighting it. And those who were left alive to remember it afterwards don't sustain grandeuristic notions of'the good fight'; for them rememberance is more concerned with the suffering of them and their comrades, and the hope that It won't happen again.

    How do you define a "Hard drug?"

    Well, alright, not actually addictive so that a complete dependency is developed, but like Toxicfluff says, there are some people who get really bad when they don't have it. To me that's nearly as good as an addiction.

    Well of course WE all know that the bible was really written by a bunch of 'shroom-head misogynists (as exemplified by Dogma). My quibble is with those who believe it to be the word of God and yet re-interpret the meanings. Sometimes it seems like the interpretation of the Bible is as shaky as A-level english literature, and surely has to be taken with an equally large quantity of salt. There is a good book called "good omens" by Terry Prattchett and Neil Gaiman which nicely satirises prophets and the authors of the bible, and also makes use of a delightfully colourful turn of phrase:

    How do you define a "Hard drug?"

    *cackle* That's a fat list. Thing is, If you're rating the hardness of drugs by their level of addictiveness, then for some people I know (er, me included probably), weed is Hard-to-the-mother-fucking-Core. (provoking discussion, not necessarily disagreeing).

    The whole presentation of W40K has changed drastically since the release of the third edition. It's now become a much more legend-laden world in which you can explore, with much more depth and flexibility to the game and the story. New heights of cheesiness are reached frequently, with GW regulars citing such witty repartee as: "H4R H4R, 4D6 extra dispell dice, my wand is bigger than yours!" "Immodium" by Nirvana is now something of a running joke amongst the inhabitants of the Wolverhampton store - apparently Kurt is actually saying "Jezael," not "She said." It's amazing what perversions of the english language can be achieved using only the collective lexis of a single fictional micro-cosmic universe and the power of the mind(less). And I do believe we are still firmly on the topic of fundamentalism.

    How do you define a "Hard drug?"

    :D Heh, well I do know a couple of people who got head-fucked on acid. Though they aren't 'permanently' screwed I suppose - the first recovered after a year and now he is taking it again. The other one... The jury's still out after two years. Granted, it wasnt acid, it was shrooms plus about five other drugs at the same time. He blew his fucking head open. He's in the looney-bin right now, and he listens to a lot of Hardcore rave. That's what a bad experience does to you, kids. Aceeeeeeed! Disorder, Could you ask for me, or send me somewhere I might ask questions regarding the after-effects of acid? only people have told me that it "stays with you" and I'd really like to check that out - it's basically the reason for classing it as hard in my mind. Oh yeah, flashbacks do occour, not with every body, but my mum only tried it once and she had powerful flashbacks for a few months afterwards. Shitty thing is, some guy slipped it in her drink then as she was beginning to trip declared hs absolute love and immediate intentions... not good trip material.

    November

    Today I looked out the window mid-afternoon, and I did percieve a most overwhelmingly grey pastiche of that summertime hedonistic paradise in which I have been living for the past few months. And I remembered, the weather is one of the things I love about this country. November rocks. And as a side note: Aaaw man, this is fucking mingin'! I applied Henna to my hair earlier on for the first time, and I just picked out this lump of green shit from behind my ear. And every post I have made tonight has been whilst wearing a tinfoil hat with a towel wrapped around my head. This is truly mingin'...

    They are definetely a good army to play with now. Loosely related to the given topic, my friend works at GW in wolverhampton. He's been there long enough now that he is allowed to mail oredr by weight. He got several hundred punds worth of Skaven for less than £50. I don't know wether to be jealous or worried. Thing is he spends his money on Magic cards, GW and console games, and not much else. Whatever floats your boat, I suppose, but still, sometimes I wonder...

    Lucid dreaming

    i'm growing to love that, It gives me such a kick sometimes. Recently my dreams have begun to become more coherent and I find it easier to remember them, but this often leads to me falling back asleep five of six times because they're just too damn cool to let slip. A few weeks ago during a really hectic and fun few weeks I had an excellent dream involving this girl that lasted for seven hours, and although I knew it was a dream in several places I couldn't exactly control it. It tripped along nicely without my help though. But I don't get these cool-shit dreams about Doom either so much. However one time I dreamt of a Tyranid invasion. That was some fucking scary shit! I think it ended with a Lictor un-camoflaging itself. I was still on a rush a minute or so after waking up.

    Fun fundamentalism!

    (http://www.capalert.com) This sort of thing jabs at me as well to be honest. I find it quite disagreeable, the way religious doctrine is changed to suit the current social context. I mean it's nice an' all that an actively homosexual bishop may be ordained now, but If your religious text says that homosexuality is a bad thing (and I don't know enough of the bible to say wether it does or doesn't), then surely allowing it merely to appear Politically correct is a shameful contravention of faith? Um, besides the point, do you have any of the new Grey Knights models, Danarchist?

    How do you define a "Hard drug?"

    :D Aye, I just didn't want to make an extravagantly long post in the hopes that people would read several broken up. heh. Yeah, the "planted the notion" thing is how its working with me now, gradually. Five days? Nasty! She has my good wishes and respect for being able to handle that. Although the worst comedown I have ever witnessed was a cockney friend of mine. As the evening was winding down, about seven a.m. i think, he finally polished off the remnants of the speed that had been left to him by my other friends. That is to say, over the course of about twelve hoursm he had something in the region of 21 lines. Twenty-one. Shit, I even called my dad up to come pay us a visit when we moved on to my mates house the next day, to give him some friendly advice as to how to handle it. Thing is, we thought he was on the mend so we fed him a few bongs, disregarding the advice given to us by my dad, and... um his head wasn't straight for a couple of days afterwaards. It was a bit scary, but he and the rest of us learnt from that. Paranoid delusions didn't look fun. Sixteen bongs in a row just to get to sleep certainly was though. I find the idea that a drug is only hard as long as society as a whole (however that may be defined) regards it as such rather interesting. I don't think I've ever thought of it quite like that before. I think personally though I still retain some idea of absolouteness as regards the nature of hard drugs, i.e. crack is hard (but not to say un-touchable); perhaps If you'd put this to me before the E-xperience I would have assimilated this view as a sensible way of looking at things, but now I fear as a symptom of trying to sort my head out I have begun to regard the world less-and-less as a sphere of relativity. Viewing the worls in such a manner certainly is good for exercising your brain, but after a while... I'm willing to trade that for a nice snug bed deep within the rabbits fur, to be assertive in my internal dialogues. At least it means I have some platform of stability to ground my observations in. This is why I sometimes envy fundamentalists and thugs. They have such firmly grounded convictions that it all becomes much simpler, Life is a fluid stream but with a discernible course and workings. I'd like that. [EDIT] Shit, I don't half bang on. That wasn't intended to be spamming, I swear! [/EDIT]

    Fun fundamentalism!

    I spy Danarchists avatar! Sad bastard :p I do wonder how many of 'these people' are in control. I mean, at times it seems reasonable to think that they are the only people in control, the way things go, and other times I relax into a sense of security and persuade myself that these people only wield power at the fringes.

    How do you define a "Hard drug?"

    Oh, by-the-by ToXiCFLUFF, are you sure you don't get comedowns? I mean do you think maybe they just integrate themselves into the fabric of your normal life that you don't notice them? I say this because a couple of days after the speed and pillz session I actually was coming down, my serotonin was completely drained. I felt thirteen again for days. Deftones never sounded so good. Anyway, at the time i was convinced that it was other things bringing me down (I scapegoated girl-trouble at the time), and it was only a few days later that i realised the truth because it just felt so much like I was in a depressed state for a 'good reason' not just a clinical thing.

    How do you define a "Hard drug?"

    Yeah, insecurity with regards to my own mental state is the main thing stopping me from doing hallucinogenics. I think too much basically, too much shit going on in my head, although recently I have begun to reconcile it all and feel a lot better about the way I am. And this process began after I took ecstacy for the first time. That drug did two things for me: 1) It reminde me what it is to be happy and love everyone and everything for no reason at all, and 2) It sorted my spine out. No shit. Oh, and although the comedown immediately after speed was messy, It was certainly one of the best experiences I've ever had. It was just such an enjoyable mess with my perception, and I thought I was a complete Pro, my confidence was up there man. I'd like to detail it but that's coz i've drunk a lot of coffee and I don't drink it much. Buzzin'.
