So, I just bought my FOURTH +OnePlus​​ One.

I really don't want to discuss WHY I've had 4, but I've owned 3 and sold one via Craigslist.

Rather than buy a newer phone with faster/better/MOAR of all the things, I chose to buy the same phone. A year later and 2 tragic accidents and I still think this is the most goddamned awesome phone I've ever owned. Stop seeking perfection and find peace with any device that suits you; that's my advice to the entire world.

#NeverSettle for marketing that tries to convince you that newer/better/faster/MOAR is necessarily a good thing for you.

Also, I got a free flip case. #SQUEE

Maybe this is just me...but I cannot get Pandora notifications to work. Seems like they used to, but haven't in quite some time.

There's a difference between depression and sadness. Depression is bleh... good or bad, just meh. Sadness is (mostly) fleeting.

Story
Tagline
Mostly Harmless; Naturalist Post-Punk Radical Leftist Secular Humanist
Introduction
“He was a dreamer, a thinker, a speculative philosopher...or, as his wife would have it, an idiot.”

“Man has always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much...the wheel, New York, wars and so on...while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man...for precisely the same reason.”

"The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be."

Sandwiched in-between one of Olympia's many Farmer's Markets and the 7-Eleven on the corner, you might easily miss seeing this nice little shop. It's on one of the busiest streets in the area, and unless you already have business in the area, your probably not looking around. Don't get distracted! This once-a-home-now-a-business might not look like much at first glance, but inside lurk done of the nicest folks in the Olympia retail cannibusiness. The shop is visually attractive and laid out logically, with similar products grouped together. They have a decent selection of flower, with a wide variety of stains and producers to choose from. I was even casually educated about a local producer that is owned and operated by disabled Veterans! HOW COOL IS THAT?! They also run daily specials @ $10/g, which tend to rotate during business hours as they sell out. You won't miss a good deal just because something is out of stock! They also have $5 discounts on purchases of $20 or more which rotate daily and are documented on their website. TL;DR Great shop, run by good, ethical people providing quality products at good prices.

It's a McDonald's. Unfortunately, this one is slower than average and makes more mistakes. Very frustrating and if it wasn't so close to my house I'd probably avoid it.

Lucid is a prime example of Potrepreneurs doing it right! The staff here are extremely knowledgeable, with a breadth of experience; they're able to help out both novices and ganja gurus. They're also friendly, listening carefully to ensure that customers are able to find something that suits their needs. The facility is nice and modern looking, lots of natural light and clean surfaces. There's a lot of display for new equipment and tools. They also have free copies of local Marijuana publications available. There's a wide variety of products available, coming from multiple vendors and processors. They have a consistent focus on quality, so even low cost items are worth purchasing if cost is a major consideration. If you're in the market for Marijuana and you're in the neighborhood, Lucid is a fantastic place to be. You can also just stop in and say Hi, I'm sure they'd enjoy it.
