"We should have just said no".
 
On the centenary of the first anti-drug law in the US, a very good overview of the drugs trade over the past century, and the failures and costs of the War on Drugs.

#Law #Drugs #WarOnDrugs
Let’s all pause today to wish a happy 100th birthday to the War on Drugs. And what a century it’s been!Twenty-five years ago, the stated goal of the United States’ anti-narcotic efforts according to the Department of Justice was to “disrupt, destroy and dismantle drug trafficking enterprises.” That same year, the U.S....

Four emails. (And apparently two more that went to +Jerry Hildenbrand.)

I should start a tumblr or something of my deleted replies to these people who obviously just don't get the point of commercials that are about including people. But instead, I'm just going to repost one of the commercials any time I get another letter questioning how "we" (Google, of course) would dare include a gay couple for 2 seconds of a 60-second commercial about coming together and moving forward, even while we're all different. 

" 'And' moves take guts. But they can mean everything. ... When enough people have an 'And' view, the world changes. Forever. ... Opening yourself up isn't easy. But when you do, it's hard to forget. Because it leads to something new. Something better."

The latest email came from a school district address. And that's really a shame. I think these commercials were great. So simple. So well done. (Plus, Andrew WK!)

I'm OK with folks being uncomfortable about change. I've certainly had to overcome some of that, too. But we have to treat each other better. We just have to.

Humans appear to have evolved puny muscles even faster than they grew big brains, according to a new metabolic study that pitted people against chimps and monkeys in contests of strength.

The upshot, says biologist Roland Roberts, is that "weak muscles may be the price we pay for the metabolic demands of our amazing cognitive powers."

Fast service, that's the nicest thing you can say about this place. Bland food, rubbery shrimp, flavors don't really stand out. Taco bell would stand out as authentic Mexican cuisine compared to this.
