MDMA also causes brain damage over time.

It's why there are no longer any regular users.

Why should the shit fucks of the world have all the fun?

I wanted to post that too, but had some afterthoughts.

The core point seems to be an old (and recycled) article from 2008: http://www.flascience.org/?p=408.

While an interview from 2014 show the Tuck dude saying:
“I’m not an evangelical right-winger,” he told me. “I’m not trying to get religion in schools.”

[…]

Tuck said his problem is that scientists can’t say for certain how the universe began.

“I guess the thing I struggle with is you’re teaching evolution to fifth-graders and you get done and one says, ‘Where did it start?’” he said. “And you say what?”
http://www.flascience.org/?p=3494

Which is kinda meh, if you ask me. (Not that there aren't arguments, but it's so commonplace. And often leads to "we don't know, therefore magic".)

I also had a look at his (quite boring) twitter feed and he sounds like your run of the mill christian reactionary conservative.

Perhaps he has wisened up a bit in 10+ years?



Linguistic question: is "wisened up" correct? There is a discussion thread here: https://forum.wordreference.com/threads ... p.3409977/, and all save the last poster are against it. So I used it, of course. :mrgreen:

Woman Tosses Molotov Cocktail Into Florida USCIS Office

A woman tossed a lit Molotov cocktail into the lobby of a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office in Oakland Park, Florida. No one was reported injured, according to a report of the incident sent to Trump administration officials and viewed by The Associated Press, though one person reported feeling ill from the smell of gasoline.

The woman walked into the office Friday afternoon and hurled a bottle filled with gasoline and a lit fuse. The fuse disconnected from the bottle and did not ignite, according to the report. Law enforcement officials believe the woman intended to cause harm but the incident wasn’t related to other ones where Homeland Security agencies were targeted.

Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of Citizenship and Immigration Services, which handles legal immigration, said in a tweet that the incident was “another example of the use of violence in place of debate by those who oppose the proper application of our immigration laws.”

[…]

The incident comes amid federal investigators’ growing concerns about attacks on immigration agencies during a time of heightened emotion and scrutiny as Trump tries to move ahead with major changes on his signature issue and energize his base of supporters by delivering on campaign promises.

Cuccinelli, who backs Trump’s hard-line immigration policies, has presided over recent policy changes that have drawn criticism from immigrant advocates.

About two weeks ago in San Antonio, at least one vehicle pulled up to a building that houses offices for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and a gunman fired shots through a window, FBI officials said. No one was injured. Another building used by ICE was also fired on.
