Mark Twain wrote that as a young man he had read a travel book that mentioned that natives in South America could work all day by using the coca plant.

He decided to go to Para at the first opportunity to flood the American market with this wonder drug.

One day he found a $50 bill on the street and immediately booked passage to New Orleans to catch a boat to Para.

On his way he pestered the pilot to teach him about the river.

When he got to New Orleans he was told there was no ships that went to South America from New Orleans.

When the $50 finally ran out he got a job on a river boat and the rest is history. 8)

According to science God has made 99.9% of all species go extinct...

"Ashes to ashes, dust to dust."

Did you know? Playa dust is actually Stardust from extinct stars billions of years older than the Playa and planet eARTh.

What are you, retarded? Everyone knows the world and entire universe is only a little over 4000 years old. You can look it up. Where? Why, the Bible of course!

Meh, I'm more of the perception that the Universe is zero years old... no such thing as time... yesterday and tomorrow do not exist... it's always right now.

Did you know? All regions of the quantum vacuum/Brahma/God's Vagina determined to be of the same three dimensional potential/space/size of planet eARTh' s solar system has the same energy to contain/produce/manifest as much such temporal perceptions of matter/stuff/Karma as in said region... yet 99.9% of the Universe is "empty space."

In short, "Shit happens... or it doesn't."

Is this the only thing older than unjon??? :shock:

King Clone is thought to be the oldest creosote bush ring in the Mojave Desert. The ring is estimated to be 11,700 years old, making it one of the oldest living organisms on Earth. This single clonal colony plant of Larrea tridentata reaches up to 67 feet (20 metres) in diameter, with an average diameter of 45 feet (14 m).[

No, he's older than that. Only Pando is older than unjohn, and only by a little bit, but definitely not as active.

"Tree experts also note that the organism's age cannot be determined with the level of precision found in tree rings; some claim Pando's age is closer to 1 million years.[5] Its current 80,000-year designation is based on a complex set of factors..."
