Spice grants prescience, it allows the navigator to see all possibilities, including the remote possibility that they instantly transport where they want to go, and allows them to follow that line.

Damn shame, too. I suppose the surroundings help keep down the number of tweakers, but they do exist and they're all too easy to encounter.

It's like marijuana with the effects of bath salts. Marijuana has a natural anti-psychotic in it; since spice is synthetic pot, it lacks this compound. Psychotic breaks sometimes ensue. One guy who took the stuff ate an entire dog (while it was still alive) in front of a family.

That must have been a sight to see. The family evidently thought so, since they stayed for the entire show. What kind of dog was it? Chow? Hope it wasn't a Shar-Pei - you know what they say about Chinese food. Still, if he'd eaten take-away, the cops never would have collared him. I won't judge him. Hey, maybe the guy was starving, and it gave him a whole new leash on life.

When did they make that illegal?
 
2013-01-11 03:39:04 AM  
Hahahaha... I dont know whats worse, that they got caught with 244 pounds of spice... or that they were retarded enough to not be able to talk their way out of the scenario of having lawn bags filled with plant material that is clearly not weed.

Then I consider that it was pre-made spice... if you were going to sell a shiat ton of spice in a different state, you want to go ahead and just pack the chemical and apply it to the plant material (that you shipped via UPS) after arriving at your destination, to avoid obvious things like going to jail.

So that means these morons actually bought 244 pounds of pre-made spice... which I just cant fathom, because anybody who is selling 244 pounds of spice is just sourcing the damn chem themselves.

Story makes no sense.. these people are farktards and im upset they had have this kind of capital.

StoPPeRmobile: When did they make that illegal?


A surprising number of places (Kentucky among them) have made "spice" and pretty much anything marketed as a "marijuana substitute" flatly illegal in the past few months or so. And yes, Mississippi was one of the first states (if not the first state) to explicitly ban "spice" and other non-scheduled cannabinoids.

Back in college, I once walked into a classroom with a cup of coffee and recited,

"By caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. By the beans of java do thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning. By caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. *sluuurrrrrrrrp* By caffeine alone I set my mind in motion." etc

I wish I could take credit for the line itself, but no. I think I first saw it in the scary devil monastery.

You can only ban specific chemical compounds. Any other description is unconstitutionally vague.

I doubt these people had any chemical compound that was prohibited.

These people will be out real soon, although they will lose their car to the evil that is forfeiture law. That is probably why they were arrested.

It's the Holtzman engines that actually do the fold-space. Norma Cenva invented them before she became the first navigator.

The navigators use the spice to mutate into something else, which enables the extra level of prescience to guide the ships.

They don't mutate, it just expands their consciousness so that they can see all possibilities and take the ship down the possibility that results in it teleporting to where they want to go.
