I don't even live in CO but since people know I lived there...well I received a notice for a random drug test after the election...yes true story.

I'll wait and see how this law will be mandated but I'm disappointed.
The two states that decriminalized (Washington and Colorado) are the two most recent states I've lived in. I know people in both of them. I used to smoke a lot for three years or so, about 1994-1997. Three cops live in my neighborhood, and I saw two helicopters yesterday.

Coincidence...?

...or CONSPIRACY!!?!

Random drug test is random. Man.

Here in COLO SPGS it's routine to see helicopters on a near daily basis, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time. Both USAF and USA types.

Since you live not too far from Fort Carson, I'd expect to see them often, especially with an entire new helicopter brigade moving into Fort Carson this year. BTW, the city sold off its two helicopters a few years back in a budget crunch and to my knowledge has not replaced them.

Even in Pueblo its common to see military helicopters. Its funny to see them land at the airport because they have to follow the same flight path a airplane takes yes you don't expect to see a helicopter decent the same as a plane.

Guys...guys...I was just being snarky.

Point being, even if the drug test story were truly true, I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with knowing anyone in a state that just passed this amendment. Hence the word "random." It's quite a reach to say that there is a correlation...at least IMO.

I can never get a joke on city data and that is actually a running joke itself in the science and technology section.

Oh, man, I didn't even see the connection until just now; I hadn't had a "random" test in over 8 years, but I was given a drug test just three days after the election and I AM FROM COLORADO!

There is also a helicopter parked out back and I am surrounded by cops!

(Correlation does not equal causation)

(Have I mentioned I work for a multi-agency counter-narcotic program?)

Josseppie, for some reason my brand of humor doesn't do so well in Colorado...a lot of people don't get my jokes. I get a lot of blank stares...

For reference, I've been compared to Darlene from the show Roseanne. I have that sort of dry sarcasm, snarky little brunette thing going on.

Of course it doesn't help that as a total nerd, I frequently reference nerdy cultural TV, film, and internet jokes too. Not everyone has seen every episode of Red Dwarf, Monty Python, Dr. Who, etc. or is aware of the purpose of 20-sided dice. Those references stop being funny the instant you have to explain them.

*sigh*

To tie this back to something remotely relevent to our topic though, about the only thing I miss about being a smoker during my teen years, was that the aforementioned shows (particularly Monty Python) were very much funnier to me when I was under the influence. Laughing like an idiot for no really good reason was kind of fun. Not worth the lethargy the next day...but fun.

Friend: "Hey Julie, remember that one time we were so high, and you almost choked to death on Easter candy?"

Me: "Vaguely."

Friend: "That was HILARIOUS!"

Me:

LOL I think in real life you and I might have similar personalities its just on line I read everything mono tone and that is why I don't get any jokes and seem to take things to seriously.

Here is my story:

My friend: You will laugh at anything

me: what

my friend: watch this "ta-ble"

me: I laughed uncontrollably.

He kept doing that all night
