Sweden is the Florida of Scandinavia

I thought this type of thing only happened in Florida.


When a Swedish dope smoker's TV started talking to him and his girlfriend appeared to turn into a dolphin, he decided it was time to lodge a complaint. The befuddled 26-year-old went to his local police station to complain about the low quality of the hash he had been sold. He told officers he suspected it had been laced with LSD or some other psychedelic substance, and wanted it tested, the Local reports.

The man told police he'd never experienced similar effects in his 10 years of smoking hash. Police say the dealer could face assault charges on top of drug-dealing ones if the hashish sample turned in by the dissatisfied customer was found to contain LSD. No charges have been filed, however, since the smoker eventually decided against giving police the name of his supplier.

have watched about 30 minutes of the health care summit...i have a feeling, surprisingly, that not much is going to get accomplished here.

Let's hash out what we can agree on. We'll talk about why we like our bill and you all stop us when you agree that we're right. Wait! Stop talking about why you don't like our bill. That's not productive!

We're about 20 minutes away from one side screaming "Coverage!" and the other screaming back "Cost!"

I really enjoyed the Big Z Era in DC:

The Washington Wizards have waived center Zydrunas Ilgauskas after reaching an agreement on a contract buyout, the team said.

TJ said...

The article goes on to say that Z has in fact already flown back to Cleveland. That loophole in these NBA trades has to be one of the most asinine things I've ever seen.

You guys have seen this craziness, right?

initial hummel diagnosis: torn acl. that hurts.

My early analysis of the healthcare summit:

The GOPers and Dems are fighting to a draw (or a tie for last place), but the real loser is the President, who is coming off as an unpleasant combination of arrogant and annoyed. Playing the "I'm the President" card twice already was not awesome.

sez the unbiased gentleman from arlington.

my take, in case you're wondering, is that the whole thing is a fucking traveshamockeryofacharade that's a waste of all of our time.

As is ice dancing.

What's the healthcare summit?

Geoff said...

Calmer than you are, Rob.

initial hummer diagnosis: toothy. also hurts.

I'm regretfully familiar with that particular injury.

I love these folksy stories. "When my wife and I were selling shoes we shopped around for insurance ..." Totally analogous to negotiating for health insurance for millions of people.

Segregation based on health? Amazing.

rob said...

i confess to not really understanding the 'calmer than you are' comment. being calmer than me is really not much of an achievement. calm's not usually my strong suit. pinstripe is, though.

Go watch The Big Lebowski right now and brush up on your lines.
