Drug report: Legal cocaine!!! « Viceland.com Mephedrone is a drug that you can buy on the internet that’s been described as a cross between cocaine and MDMA. It’s been doing the rounds in gay clubs for a while but now it’s crossing over into straight places. It’s not been illegalised yet and, as it only costs £60 for six grammes, we had one of our writers get some and made him go on a bit of a bender with it. The interview you read below was done two days after doing the first line and was conducted about three hours after the hallucinations and panic attacks had subsided. Vice: So where did you get it from? Guy Who Took It: Some website that's like an online version of one of those stalls at a festival that sells wizard hats and poppers and glow-in-the-dark aliens. What was it like compared to coke? So it’s like coke. Where were you when you did the mephedrone? Great. Ouch. What was the bad part? How much of the six grammes did you manage to plow through? Mmmm. How did you and your nose feel the next day? Eek.
NASA - Home Why is a raven like a writing desk? A Straight Dope Classic from Cecil's Storehouse of Human Knowledge April 18, 1997 Dear Cecil: This is something that drives me crazy every time I hear it: "Why is a raven like a writing desk?" — Mary, via the Internet Dear Mary: This riddle is famous, although it's the rarefied kind of fame that entails most people never having heard of it. "Have you guessed the riddle yet?" At this point most of us are thinking: Ho-ho, that Lewis Carroll, is he hilarious or what? Oh, they say. Lewis Carroll himself got bugged about this so much that he was moved to write the following in the preface to the 1896 edition of his book: Enquiries have been so often addressed to me, as to whether any answer to the Hatter's Riddle can be imagined, that I may as well put on record here what seems to me to be a fairly appropriate answer, viz: 'Because it can produce a few notes, tho they are very flat; and it is never put with the wrong end in front!' Did this discourage people? Not bad for amateurs. Cecil replies:

After gaining this knowledge, you may be hurt when it is obvious that someone is lying to you.

Animated cartoon A horse animated by rotoscoping from Eadweard Muybridge's 19th century photos. The animation consists of 8 drawings, which are "looped", i.e. repeated over and over. An animated cartoon is a film for the cinema, television or computer screen, which is made using sequential drawings,[Note 1] as opposed to animations in general, which include films made using clay, puppet and other means. History Early years The phenakistoscope (1832), zoetrope (1834) and praxinoscope (1877), as well as the common flip book, were early animation devices to produce movement from sequential drawings using technological means, but animation did not develop further until the advent of motion picture film.

How To Train Yourself To Be In The Mood You Want Dec 27, 2010 When you have major changes going on in your life, or you’re just frustrated about where you are, it’s easy to get trapped in a cycle of depression, bad moods and frustration. I know, I’ve been there … and when I’m not careful, I still get there more than I want to. But when I’ve had a particularly hard time, I hit these moments where I’m in a foul mood, or I’m just feeling paralyzed, and I’m just stuck. I’m going to outline the framework that I’ve been using successfully to really get myself resourceful and motivated (and in a better mood) when I’m feeling stuck. First Up: Using A Framework to Escape From Paralyzing Emotions When we feel bad, it’s hard to “feel good” again. The reason for this is that steps take the emotion out of our situation and give us direction to simply act. You can call these verbal step-by-step tools anchors if you want, because they’re ways to anchor your emotional state to a time where you knew what to do and you felt prepared. Think about it. Dave
