I still recall the first time I got my brother to watch this movie. Which was just shortly after he decided to flunk out of seminary school after a year. He asks me, "is this movie about drugs?" To which I responded with, "well, maybe a little bit."

Cue opening scene lol. It was fun introducing him to certain movies that he had missed out on. Some people take turns in their life and he certainly did. I doubt anyone would recognize him, that knew him prior to those very pivotal years when he learned that the religion he grew up with, was not the one that awaited him in the real world.

FTFA: ' The messages were sent in early 2015, shortly before an alleged incident in Australia between Depp and Heard that she claims was "a three-day ordeal of physical assaults". '

Perhaps they plan to contend that un-prescribed and un-monitored drug use contributed to a mental state that encouraged violence against his spouse, thus supporting their claim that the alleged violence did occur.

There's a hodgepodge of approaches depending on who you are buying from, what you are buying, and how well you know each other. I've never done dead drops, although I've been asked to pay one guy and take a drive around the block with another who leaves a package on the glove compartment to take as he drops me back near my place. Best deal was when I had enough of a reputation as a stand up guy that I could get stuff on credit all weekend and settle with a check on Monday. It saved me the trouble of walking around with cash, kept both parties from looking extra sketchy my making the hand-off one way only since no cash had to go back during delivery, and it was kinda badass.

Fear and Loathing was very hard to watch for someone who doesn't do drugs.  Some parts are funny, such as the ether scene, but the majority of the film feels like waking up on the floor after a night of bar hopping.  The best part of the film was probably when HST was halfway sober and pondering the meaning of the 60s.

So? He's a phenomenal character actor and has a great range. He's brought to life some of the most iconic characters to ever grace the screen.

He maybe has a substance abuse problem. So do millions of other people.

That doesn't mean he's an wife beater. Or any other kind of human beater. It just means he maybe abuses his own damn body with substances.

I fell off the wagon and abused my own damn body with substances today, bad on me. But here we are. I crawled into bed and went on the internet. I didn't hit anybody. Assuming that he did is just absurd.

That movie was awful. The book wasn't great either. But the adaptation managed to fark up the good elements from the book and turn out a steaming pile. I got around reading the book last summer, alternating each day by also reading 'The Sun Also Rises'. It was a good reading combo for the pool. Then i decided to watch the movie with an open mind, even though i knew the critics had savaged it. Well, critics did not go far enough in their one star reviews.

I maintain that as an integral part of my view of the world to this day.  Also, I use proper punctuation and capitalization when texting.  If you're going to spend every waking minute on your goddamn phone texting, daughter of mine, then there is no longer any excuse of 'just sending a quick message'.

Oh god, it happened.  I got old.  Oh god.

You're not alone. I've made it a mission of sorts to maintain the last vestiges of integrity when it comes to language via text. This includes the use of proper punctuation, spelling, and grammar- whenever possible. I don't care if it makes me seem old or snobby. I don't want to be some drooling simp texting only emoticons and shortening words because it's just too hard to type full sentences. These phones nowadays make it even easier to text full sentences with little difficulty. If you don't use it, you lose it.

What, exactly is a simp?

Please think about your answer, carefully.

It's an easy google, but here you go:

It's short for simpleton- a silly or foolish person. Yes, it is an acceptable shortening of the word. It is nothing like text-speak, if that's what you're inferring.

I knew exactly what it was and what it was a shortened version of.

I would have thought that that was obvious, here we are anyway.


Yes. Here we are. It's hard to tell on here sometimes. I didn't want to be rude and not answer if you were genuinely asking.

There's nothing more helpless or irresponsible or depraved than a muppet in the depths of an ether binge, and Gonzo's already gotten into that rotten stuff, by the looks of it.

Language should change and always will. To me, It seems wise to be careful how it changes.

The point of language is to understand and be understood. Nothing more and nothing less. All of you can make points about why you prefer such and such, Oxford commas, but it's all stupid. Languages evolve, but that's only useful if they're understood. I have no farking clue what you said, ADA, because I don't give two shiats to learn about some new childish hieroglyphs that have zero point to them. On the other hand, dead languages are used in science for a good goddamn reason (because they DON'T EVER CHANGE!)

There you go. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Did you just use a shortened word in a sentence that said that people who shorten words are drooling idiots?

Hmmm.

The irony is not lost. I do understand that I am a product of the benefits in language evolution. Every generation frets about the possible loss of language and intelligence as a result. The article I shared makes some great points on how and why this happens and why it isn't a huge cause for concern. The common fear is the decline of civilization. No doubt, someone of a previous generation would read or listen to how I communicate and recoil in horror and bewilderment. Really, they're just not jiggy with it. Savvy?
