Is not that you are tired, is that the coffee isnt strong enough.

Some of it was made by me...it was strong enough for the rest of the employees not to want my coffee. :D
I've slept for less than 5 hours a night for a while now. That's the reason.

I understand you, I've been for months sleeping 5 or 6 hours no matter if I go to sleep tired or if I don;t have to get up early. In the afternoon the lack of energy is notable :( .

Yeah, and up here we get a lot less daylight this time of the year so you end up with even less energy.
Now...MORE COFFEE!

Yeah now. May I quote a little Primus?

When I need relief I spell it THC
Perhaps you may know vaguely what I mean
I sit back and smoke away huge chunks of memory
As I slowly inflict upon myself a full lobotomy-call it pointless

Lol.

Elections were big in some places....

Image

"Washington earned the distinction of being the first state to call marijuana legalization a success; voters approved Measure 502 by a 10 point margin: 55.5% to 44.5%.

The measure will permit state-licensed marijuana growers, processors and retail stores, where adults over 21 can purchase up to one ounce of dried marijuana. The law also establishes a standard blood test to enforce restrictions on driving while stoned. Tax revenues may reach $2 billion over five years, which will go to fund education, health care, substance abuse prevention, and other basic government services."

""Coloradoans also approved recreational use of marijuana with the passage of Amendment 64. Voters favored the amendment 53.4% to 46.6%, with more than half the votes reported.

Starting almost immediately, it will be legal for adults in Colorado to grow and consume up to an ounce of marijuana. Marijuana retail stores may open in about a year. The state must adopt regulations governing commercial businesses before July 1, 2013. Sales taxes and licensing fees are expected to reach $5 million to $22 million per year.

While the feds have selectively raided dispensaries in California, the Department of Justice and the Obama administration have been relatively quiet on the 2012 marijuana measures. “We’re going to take a look at whether or not there are dangers to the community from the sale of marijuana and we’re going to go after those dangers,” Deputy Attorney General James Cole recently told 60 Minutes.

More details on how the Colorado law works, according to the Colorado Independent:

People will not be able to smoke in public, like at baseball games or in parks.
People growing their own plants can have up to six at a time, with no more than three being mature at any given time.
Growers will be allowed to possess their entire harvest, even if it exceeds one ounce.
Plants will have to be grown in secured areas that are not visible to the public.
Employers will not have to accommodate people who wish to smoke. Drug testing and firing based on marijuana will still be allowed.

Overall, a major victory for people who realize that marijuana is no more dangerous – and perhaps less so – than alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs."

From my point of view, is near impossible. Pro-statehood people claim a 61% win in the referendum however those numbers are far from the reality of what happened. When the votes of people that don't prefer the statehood (pro-republic, current status with some changes or current status with no change ) are summed statehood comes at 44% pro-statehood, 56% against. Whats more, from a population density point of view statehood comes at just 22%...

What's more important is USA attitude, there have been no indication in years that they want a change in our current status or that they don't like it, that's a contrast of what you see at international level with their decisions and claims in other countries. With a poor economy and lots of social problems there's no justification of either integrating us fully to the federation or leaving us alone...

Well, after a 3 hour handling and driving test I passed my motorcycle test. Sort of easier now after having driven a car for a good ten years. Out of the 3 size classes I got the biggest license since "you're so damn old". Sure enough I had a good 10 years over everyone else I had been riding with.
