I'm guessing a muddled memory of coming upon an illegal still somewhere in Eastern Europe?
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

The laws, they are changin'… :mrgreen:
No one is more surprised than I am at the fact that pot is now legal in Nevada. Given my state's previous stance on the substance, I figured it would be literally the last holdout against legalization rather than one of the early adopters. And I was doubly shocked that one of the biggest legalization proponents of the change was the Republican governor we had at the time. Though the last is tempered by the fact that Governor Sandoval kind of went against the Evangelical holy roller grain that is common among Republicans in other states, he could give an entire speech without ever once invoking God or Jesus, so he was often derided as a RINO.

The most fun part of legalization in this state was watching the uber-conservatives go nuts. Sheldon Adelson, one of Trump's best buds, went so far as to buy the Las Vegas Review Journal (biggest newspaper in the state) specifically to change the paper's editorial policy from pro-legalization to anti. Then lie about both his ownership of the paper and, once that became impossible, about why he did it

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Well, update on my piece of shit ex-brother in law who tried to murder my sister.

The good news is that he is going to prison.

The bad news is that he made a plea deal and is only looking at 2-15.

Guess I have two years to figure out a good way to dispose of his corpse when he gets out. And of course for the benefit of any law enforcement personnel who may be reading this in two years, I am only kidding.

Or am I? Maybe I will just torture him to death, turn myself in and take my lumps. Ha ha. That was another joke.

Perhaps he will have a date with the Health Inspector:

Well, here's the part that will be fun for him.

My nephew, the son of the sister the chucklefuck tried to kill, has done time himself. And he still knows people in there. And he is going to make sure that those people know exactly what that prick is in for.
