Re: Steveboy, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing

Also a recent study has proven what every real pot head has known for years. That THC is only one chemical that makes up the therapeutic effects...

I'm not saying it should be eliminated because it has the potential to be abused (hell, that'd get rid of pretty much anything). I'm considering the notion that the program itself, however well-intended, goes against the grain of BM's stated aim of "radical self reliance." This would be true even if...

You know, much as I like the spirit of the yellow bike program, EB's point is very well taken. In a sense the program is enabling those who didn't have the sense (or, to be fair, the means) to bring their own transporation to the Playa, and creating opportunities for those who want to devalue the se...

Sure, a DJ should know how to beatmatch, but that's not what DJing is. A monkey can beatmatch.
