Okay rant over. Sorry. It probably was all said before, but oh well.
OK sorry, I`m getting off of the soapbox now. I`m glad we could come to an agreement of sorts bandit.
I have just known a lot of people who use it and most of them weren`t exactly winners. That`s not to say it applies to everyone and I should`ve said it better.
Jumping to another post so I don`t run out of room.
Shut the hell up little boy, you make foolish assumptions on things you have no idea about. You claim stoners are stupid? Here`s a list of words you spelled wrong in that sentence: Now, stupid, they`re, entertainment, it`s. Your english is so horrible I barely understood it. "though still very entertainment.." WTF?!?!? I`m certain you have no right to call anyone but yourself "supid."
I was the biggest stoner you have ever met. I`m in college right now in an advanced program, and I`ve never made anything lower than an A on a quiz. I have a horrible memory from smoking pot, granted, but I`m not stupid.
Freddyferret: I know a bunch of people who`ve NEVER smoked pot, and most of them are complete retards.
Smoking anything slowly kills you by destroying your lungs. That should end the "pot is ok" argument.
If you smoke cigs or pot you`re killing yourself either way...so who cares what the "mental" part of it is.
My brother lost his job over it so it certainly isn`t a positive in that area...
I just don`t smoke anything, rather enjoy breathing and the idea of being able to do so when i`m 80.
I had another professor at this same school who was equally as nutty, but, I`m going to tell you something, I paid attention to him! And it`s a helluva lot better than some monotone idiot up there reading from prepared notes.
Thanks, bandits111. I was thinking Dr. Denslow, but he`s an economics prof, and, as I said, it was a long time ago. Excellent teacher, though, as I`m sure this man is. :-)
Its just not the fact that pot will effect his lesson, as people have said, theres no proven evidence that it made him do his job less efficient, even though it probably did. But its the way he`s not only broken school rules as a teacher and risked his entire career, but he`s also broken the law by taking an illegal drug.. so that proves he`s incredibly dumb for risking that all for a joint or two. All he had to do was wait a couple of hours til he got home and THEN he can relax and have a joint
I see two groups of people here: those who have been whipped into believing what the government force-feeds about marijuana, and THOSE WHO HAVE TRIED IT (and thus, like it, having seen that its nothing but a good relaxation device).
But guys. What makes anyone think this man is stoned? He just seems like a lot of fun to me.
And also, it seems that everythings being taken out of context, so who knows...these things could well be applicable,as Swaywithme said.
But even if he is high...I really dont think it seemed to negatively impact his teaching skills!
But Im probably just a hippy :)
Only if you`re in the States 8-)
bubblebub has a point though and that should be acknoweldged. She`s certainly not wrong though I wouldn`t compare this to a doctor...
He shouldn`t be stoned while he`s at work and while he`s providing people with information they need to complete their education. We only see a little bit of his lecture so I highly doubt his entire speech was like THAT.
It`s funny, for us. The students have a warrent to be upset about it.
Still, that doesn`t make pot evil.
Of course it`s serious if your teacher is unable to do their job, but unlike open-heart-surgery or diagnosing illness, with teaching you have a safety net provided by others who can do their job properly.
For all the people that think this teacher isnt doing anything wrong.. how would you feel if you were seriously ill in hospital and your life hanged in the balance of one doctor and that doctor took a joint before seeing you, you`d be prefectly happy about that? seeing as his "intelligence" isnt effected? You still think he`d be able to do his job 100%?
Cos i dont know about you, but i`d like my doctor or teacher to have a totally clear head before they mess with my future!
As for the pot versus alcohol versus cigarettes argument, I think Mr. Mackey says it best, but that includes alcohol, too. Or another way to say it is, all things in moderation... ;-)
However, I would like to say this...I am probably one of the only people responding to this post who has taken this class from this professor at this college. The FACT is that he is an intelligent professor and the class and most of his statements make sense when put into context. So, next time, I would ask that YOU not be so quick to judge i.e. -"I would be getting a refund for this class and getti
Anyway, the smelling thing is bull sh it. A lot of people like the smell of pot. If you don`t handle breathing in smoke well, the SMELL of pot isn`t going to kill you.
Vindicate: Sucks for you. Do you think we should get rid of cats and dogs too for all the people allergic to them?No, because cats and dogs are awesome. Like weed. Not ciggs, they suck. But I agree people should spray some Axe or something on before going out after smoking...or change clothes.
Community college doesn`t count, sorry. As far as f*cking me, you could only be so lucky.
Bandits1111, I don`t do drugs or drink. I have better things to do with my time. I never had the urge to make a flaming idiot out of myself by putting things like that in my body. You prove my point about stupidity by your comments. You make assumptions about me based on nothing. I can`t stand the president, hate corporate America, and know more about politics and current events than most people I know. Just because I am against pot and alcohol doesn`t mean I`m a American drone who only knows what is spoonfed to me by the morons in the media. Don`t try to debate something without facts or valid points. Your assumptions were based on nothing but your anger.
Except of course for people who are allergic to the smoke (random, yes, but I`m also allergic to cigarette smoke... my lungs just don`t like foreign substances, what can I say?) - because by smoking, you create second-hand smoke. And in the same vein as cigarette smokers, other people are forced to inhale the smoke in your vicinity. Not to mention the smell. Of course, if you want to smell like a skunk, that`s your perogative. But you DO force people to be exposed to it by going out in public while high and still smelling of it. So while you may not force them to sit down and inhale the joint, you still force the smell on them.
Just like cigarette smokers. But illegal and more idiotic. Kthxbye.
Live a little. Don`t be so judgemental about something with which you have no first hand experience.
"But honestly, don`t have a go at ppl who have the sense not too."
Sense? We don`t hit out at people who don`t WANT to try it, sure. It`s a personal choice and you should never force anyone into an experience if they don`t want to...But don`t think you can judge anyone until you`ve been in their shoes. Don`t have a go at people who do use it. A doctor who saves lives all day and goes home and smokes a joint to relax before falling asleep is still just as capable as someone who goes home and has a glass of wine with dinner...or someone who goes home and has a late night cigarette, both of which are legal. I would never laugh at someone who chose to try pot...but I would laugh at people who were afraid to experience it and instead mocked others.
As for the benefits of pot, there never would be any for me. Allergies are, at least in this case, very helpful. So even if I *had* an urge to get high, I`d probably suffocate or my brain would explode from pain first. Thus, pot = stupid. Just like smoking cigs. Or alcohol. Or gambling.
there are too many misconceptions on the effects of marijuana on the brain.and if you just go by what your health teachers have told you, you are sadly misinformed.
You can be smart, but drugs can only make you dumber.
I seriously doubt any school, college, or uni, would take on a professor if all he can do is laugh at longbow and say duuuuuuuuuude.
And that`s not a slur on stoners either. It just seems to me that the guy is not able to effectively teach in that state and paying him would be a waste of money.
Kids in America aren`t as stupid as their parents who obviously can`t see a fascist ruler when he`s smiling at them right in the face! Education is putting pieces together, not just learning from the text book provided. If that were the case any ignoramous like yourself could teach. Alcohol and holding your breath kill brain cells as well...why not ban that also?
Finally, I like how you judge a Prof. based on a snippet of the lecture...probably the same way you judge politics and world affairs...from snippets provided to you by the big 10 companies. Get your head out your arse and do some conceptual learning for a change. It is only nonsense if you can`t make those connections...and that only means YOU are the stupid one.
Besides that, There`s a bunch of missing pieces of this or something...So none of it made sense. It proboly would make sense with the whole video...So I`m going to get stoned and watch this agian =]
I would far rather have a teacher like this, under the influence or not (which is quite possible, there are some strange people out there) than some dry old professor who knows how to do nothing but spew facts instead of keeping the classes interesting.
And I think that, AND I`m NOT a pothead.
Well...not really, at least.
Yeah, they are stupid. They never think they are because they`ve already fried their brains. I`ve known a bunch of people who smoke pot and none of them are smart. Some have good jobs because they got them before they started smoking. Others are in college thinking they`re doing a great job but they`re barely passing. They think that just passing is good enough. Maybe it is for them.
I would be getting a refund for this class and getting a new professor. While it`s entertaining, I could pay a lot less to get that. If I`m paying to learn I don`t want a pothead spouting off nonsense instead of teaching. Even if it seemed to make sense, if he`s stoned he doesn`t need to be teaching. No wonder kids in this country are so stupid. They`re getting "educated" by people like this dumbass.
Orange Gatorade, Tequilla, + a joint on the side = Homecomming special.
B) Stoners aren`t stupid. I hate that stereotype.
