How is she calling a beer festival a ‘marijuana related event’? Not only is there no relationship between the event and cannabis, the festival’s rules explicitly ban drugs (and smoking/vaping) - which she would know if she’d bothered to look at the FAQs on their website.
And yes, I did look it up. Before reacting to people’s outrage I like to check if it’s at all justified - hers isn’t.
Oh, they do encourage dressing up as Vikings though, which sounds kinda cool.
@Nellybert , people like her don't do any research before freaking out
@The Puppet Man, I can’t decide if the drugs bit was to try and justify her outrage, or she genuinely thinks that having a beer and taking drugs automatically go together.
Either way - bítch.
@Nellybert , so road trip? I’ll drive if you bring Viking helmets and snacks
@Nellybert , But think of the children !?!?!
@BigJohnson86, Lemme go check if there’s any import restriction on Viking drinking horns.
Might need to get the throwing axes for the drinking games on your side of the Atlantic, but I’m sure we can find some.
Oooh, can we stop at a shooting range? I wanna try one of these fully-auto semi assault rifle AR-47 things I keep reading about. Preferably with one of those 100 round drum magazines that makes it look like a giant version of Sex Machine’s crotch pistol. :)
@KingRothtar, I am thinking of the children - without beer festivals introducing them to craft beers and real ales, we risk raising another generation who think that Coors Light is a good beer!
@The Puppet Man, What do you reckon her opinions on vaccines and gluten are?
@Nellybert , to her, those vaccines and gluten are probably almost as evil as guns. And every gun is an AK47 or an AR15.
@The Puppet Man, I’m not sure she’d be anti-gun - she could be one of those people whose twitter profile reads something like “Jesus, country, family. #2A. #MAGA. Don’t mess with this mama bear’s cubs!”
Or it could be “Jesus, country, family. #impeach #notmypresident. Don’t mess with this mama bear’s cubs!”
Stick-up-their-arse belief that they know best definitely crosses all political divides.
She’s definitely anti-vax though.
@The Puppet Man, Or a Glock. All pistols are Glocks.
@BigJohnson86, I'm in I'll bring the music with spotify premium and pay for a bit of the gas
@Nellybert , you know how they say "marijuana is the gateway drug" ? Thats all bs. The gateway drug is alcohol so shes lumping pot and alcohol together to add emphasis. BUT just like pot, recreational use doesnt equal an addict. For the more mild drugs at least (including alcohol here) its less the drug as it is the persons mental state and emotional constitution. Those with addictive personalities will always go to the next level and push the boundary. Those with more willpower wont.
@FunnyPicsHoldGuard, What?!? No ads for songs by hipsters playing acoustic guitars to interrupt my playlists of rock/metal music?!? I dunno about that....
@Nellybert , I have a 3 hour playlist of AC/DC, guns'n'roses, etc. that I'm willing to expand
@FunnyPicsHoldGuard, I’m on board with that. Can we throw in some lady-metal for a bit of variety? Sumo Cyco, Vukovi, Halestorm etc?
@Nellybert , it does have "I hate myself for loving you" so yeah could have more
And I wasn’t kidding about the shooting range - I really want to try out the kind of gun that some people get worked up about!
@Nellybert , yeah Vegas I know has ranges like that but I don't live anywhere near there
Hey I went to college there. It's a really nice place to live :)
@Gadget, hey im a recent Mines graduate! When did you graduate
@Scruffy da janitor, oh very cool, what did you major in there? I graduated in 2017.... and I'm very glad to be gone lol
@Gadget, biochemical engineering. What did you major in? Haha yeah the school can be a pain for sure
@Scruffy da janitor, oh you're one of the insane individuals at the school... I get it now lol. Bio chem was way to much work for my blood so I went with mechanical. Did you get a job yet?
@Gadget, nah my dumb a$$ decided I wanted to get my masters haha but I wish I was working now. What do you do?
@Scruffy da janitor, ahh damn, so you made the wrong choice twice lol jk. And I work for the DOD now focusing on military grade explosions and their differing effects on different metal composites. I basically blow shjt up for a living. I graduated with a specialization in aerospace and now I work for the military..... go figure lol.
@Gadget, wow... suuuuuuper jealous sounds like you have the dream job!! And yeah luckily it’s a one year program so I’m free after next year
@Scruffy da janitor, heck yeah man, I'm sure you'll get your dream job too. And it could be even better because you have a master's
@Gadget, thanks man! Hope everything keeps going well for you!
Because prohibition and the war on drugs where both resounding successes
dum b1tch needs to get back in the kitchen where she belongs, fvckin hoe
Wtf does “family-oriented” even mean? Censored and boring as hell?
That's Colorado for you. Southerners move here miss Colorado springs and accidentally wind up in golden or boulder. We also have a bunch of white people walking around calling themselves natives unironically.
@payton manning, as a southerner in the sense that I like mud and beer, I apologize that my drinking habits pushed them up north to you
