I know someone who was blown up several times in Iraq, all his fellow Marines died in the last one. He has had more surgeries than I can could count. He is addicted to really, really strong opioids. He shot the Jack of Clubs or Queen of Hearts (forget the card exactly) from 938 yards. He met Pres Bush

Rydabent, can you please send some of that cure to my addicted friend. Obvioulsy, he can't cycle even on a bent anymore

My bad I guess. I shouldnt argue the use of illegal drugs with people that have damaged their brain with illegal drugs.

Maybe you shouldn't argue anything with anyone. Stick to clouds.

Well I suppose I shouldnt argue with people that take illegal drugs. It is like shooting fish in a barrel, since they have far fewer brain cells, it is not fair.

Dude, your brain is so far gone you don't even know what the argument is about.

Now see if you can repeat this : person, camera, man, TV.

Then I wouldn't think much of that cookie. Scripps Network, IMO, ruined all the food shows by making them all have essentially the same format and all of them talking the same stuff. One show is now the same as any other pretty much, just the host changes. They did the same for home remodeling and home DIY shows. Evidently they couldn't figure out how to get that format to work with gardening shows as there are none anymore.

Wait, you think the lady on the TV is trying to give you cookies? And you're accusing other people on this thread of having brain damage?

Pondering the situation, maybe the saddles on DF bikes are squeezing some guys brains so much they are resorting to drugs.

​​​Wow, aren't you the guy who keeps.complaining about personal attacks?

You've turned an argument over drug abuse into a series of accusations that anyone who was offended by the disgusting things you said are themselves brain damaged drug addicts.

​​​​​​Let's do a little refresher here because your distractions are starting to take--this started when you said drug abusers are idiots who would make the world better by getting killed as it would "improve the gene pool.". I don't have to be defending drug use, use drugs myself, or have brain damage to find that a truly cruel and borderline nazi statement, just someone with any sense of morality and compassion.
Whatever part of your brain that has any sense of humanity, humility and compassion obviously either died or never existed.

And to bring this full circle, you have to bring in your stupid lies about diamond frame bikes?

Again using illegal drugs is just plain stupid on many different levels.

So is pretty much everything you write. That pointless repetition doesn't answer a single word of what I wrote.

And if you actually knew anything about it, you'd know that a lot of people died of drug addiction after taking the drugs initially on the recommendation of their doctors.

Go ahead that take your illegal drugs. I will probably read your obit, while scanning my book marked internet sites. Using illegal drugs is absolutely insane.

I have been sober for 41 years., using neither drugs nor alcohol. Judging from your absolute insistence that I either use illegal drugs or am defending their use, I question your ability to read at all.

You have a book marked internet sites? You really are old.

Another stupid misconceived cheap shot?
You are the least clever person who has ever posted a post. You also posted that drug users should die to improve the gene pool. That remains a disgusting comment. Telling you you're full of crap for posting it is not being "in favor of illegal drugs." It's being against acting like a jerk.

Not should, will. I am not advocating for anyone to die. They are doing it to themselves.

And-----------------only jerks use illegal drugs.

Everything Armstrong used (EPO, HGH, testosterone, corticosteroids, etc.) are all legal drugs.

Let's add lying about what you actually posted, you called their dying a "win-win". That's advocating it. Speaking of jerks...

Why the emphasis on illegal drugs? The societal costs of alcohol are staggering.
