Also, check your local criminal code. Here we have a statute that targets huffing that is broad enough to use against things like spice and salts and it's the exact same level of offense as possession of weed. You might be frying your brain and not dodging legal consequences at all.

Thorn, I'm confused - the generics are still too expensive and they want cheaper, or they want to design their own custom analogs? I'd be extremely surprised if some black market version is cheaper than a generic prescription drug. It's not that most things are hard to make, but I would be scared witless to try someone's homebrew antipsychotic.

Is this the chatty thread? I dearly hope so, because I feel like a bad person.

I was at the market earlier, the one where everyone is rather chatty (which I like), and the check-out clerk, while checking me and my selected goods out -- ringing them through the cash register -- observed that I had a container of nuts here.

"What are these? Pecans?" he asked.
"No, those are almonds," I explained.
"What do you do with those?" he wondered.

I paused. "Well, *I* intend to make granola with them."

"Granola ...." OK. "So, how many bagels do you have here?"

You see, the check-out clerk was like 18 years old; with the previous customer he'd been going on about sports teams, to the point that the previous customer was lingering while they declared to one another that it was all down to ... I don't know what teams they mentioned. I think it was basketball. San Diego?

In any event, I feel badly, because I developed, in all of 2 minutes, an impatience with this young man, who was undoubtedly just trying to chat in a way he thought would be engaging.

And yet: Dude! They're fucking almonds! What do you do with them? You eat them! What kind of question is that?

Finishing up: earlier in my perambulations about the market, I'd been looking at the almonds, along with other nut- and seed-like things, and an older lady joined me as we contemplated these things. Which were at a reduced price. She noted that she really liked these wasabi peas, "A bit hot, you know, but that can be good," she confided.

I observed that while the reduced-price price was right there, I couldn't see what the original price had been, so how much off was this? We squinted together at things for a moment, then she looked up at me with "I work here, and I can't even figure it out!" and jabbed me lightly in the ribs.

So you see. It's an enjoyable place to shop and chat with people: I'm a bad person for being so irritated with that kid. "What do you do with those?" Seriously, dude, just check out my purchases.

Back in the '80s, my father said that some EPA guy he knew from work had said that any focus on outdoor air pollution was essentially a scam to prevent people looking into indoor air pollution levels, which were orders of magnitude more damaging. I feel like, to some extent, this eventually became the conventional wisdom, with focus on radon, formaldehyde, other off-gassing, etc.

The question then becomes, based on inhaling PVC primer and cement fumes for a cumulative ~30 minutes over the last week, how many mouse-orgasms worth of my cognitive capacity have I destroyed, compared to people who weren't trying to do all their own plumbing?

During my brief sojourn in the US as a kid I went to middle school with a kid who, on the first day of art class, carefully made a tube out of construction paper the exact circumference of his face. He then proceeded to pour some rubber cement on a piece of paper, place the tube over it, and put his face in the tube, huffing the fumes for the remainder of the class. He stashed the tube and repeated the performance for every subsequent class. I have no idea how the teacher did not notice, or if she did, wtf she thought he was doing.

I used to enjoy huffing bus fumes as a little kid. And somehow I knew you weren't supposed to say anythting about standing as close to the stop/street corner as you could and breathing deeply. I never sniffed airplane glue specifically (although I noticed an effect a few times building those damn models*). We did nearly burn down our garage once using nearly spent tubes as nasty little flamethrowers.

*I sort of hated getting them, for a while half of my friends were into them and I didn't have the nerve or self-confidence to tell people I did not like making them. (I was well aware of my lack of fine motor skills and patience so mine came out sucky--but we ultimately blew them all up with firecrackers over a ravine and *did* set the woods on fire in doing so.)

I almost always fly United because I built up status on Continental when I lived in New Jersey and then they merged.

97.2: I am failing at every aspect of life that isn't work or parenting, and even those are questionable. I even stopped using goodreads last spring and can't track how many books I finished this year, though it was a decent amount. But I did manage to stay out until midnight, even if it did require vociferous agreement with a neighbor-friend-lawyer about how fucked up a certain judge is, because I could go on for days there. And I came home and got the baby back to sleep and gave Lee her cigarette and will go to sleep myself soon. I've been trying not to talk about the awful stuff, but there's a lot and it's really bad. I've been hoping both of those will change soon, but maybe not.

But I had an hour out in October or November and went to Pittsburgh earlier this month and was gone for 24 hours, and now I was out for 4. Otherwise it's just half and hour here or there to get groceries, and I did take all three girls on more than a 2-mile hike today, though Selah rode in a carrier most of the way. I am not good at self-care yet and baths are often as good as it gets, so take that, Team Pantsless Smearcase! Maybe your indolent privilege is showing, or you're just better people than I can be.

Well, maybe we don't have three kids.

Right, but maybe that's a good choice on your part. And if I weren't fostering, I wouldn't HAVE TO wear pants as much as I do, but that's not really a good argument against it. (Now I'm mentally debating whether to take a bath even though it's too late and I shouldn't. Stupid thread!)

Sorry, should have just said "112: ... Laydeez!" Especially because Smearcase isn't particularly in the market, and so more for you!

Or 102 rather than 112, but maybe that too. It's unlikely to beat Bojangles, though.

I guess we'll just have to wait a few comments and see.

Maybe I should put some form of 102+104 on my OkCupid profile.

You should message me because: I totally don't have three kids.

The first things people usually notice about me: my lack of kids.

The six things I could never do without: not kids, that's for sure.

I'm really good at: contraception.

Okay, now I think 104 works.

I will pay you cash moneys if you put those on your profile, teo.

How many cash moneys?

Dunno. How much does a nice bottle of bourbon cost up there?

$40 or so.

That seems reasonable.

Aw, I got a team while I was away. Go team! And yeah, clearly I am not up on Beyonce. Good call team-mate.

Now I am trying to remember what kind of things were on my OKCupid profile. I know one of my adjectives for myself was "indoorsy."

"Indoorsy" is great. I should use it on mine.

In the context of Alaska it would be more of a warning sign than an enticement, it's true.

I am Team Smearcase on most meaningful issues, but my spine and joint pain are greatly improved by baths and neb is of course right that being able to bring a book is a huge plus. So I'm stuck with baths and kids on my hypothetical okcupid profile and the rest of the Team will just have to live with it or ostracize me.

Maybe Team Smearcase needs a challenge.
