yesterday...friday, APRIL 20th (4/20)! for me was just another friday! apparently in america for ganja smokers, yesterday was one of the most important holidays of the year. it's like xmas for stoners! it's a day to kick back with your buddies and smoke as much ganja as possible. "every day should be 420" one stoner said.

seriously, i had no idea about 420 before i saw many people looking for roomates or even dates online often write messages asking if people are "420 friendly." (??)
i asked a friend. whats 420? he answered "it's a smokeout date at 4:20pm." (??) hello..that's my regular tea time then smile

another guy told me "it's a police code for smoking pot!"
still not satisfied with their answers, i called my police friend, he said no, it's not police code.

So, i start thinking it could be adolf hitler's birth day or Kuku's b'day? but as 4:20 began as a time not a date his b'day seems has nothing to do with it! (bingung)

SO, what the hell exactly 420 means? do you know?..anyone explain please?

odd that you should think it was my birthday ... i'm a fully paid-up card-carrying gemini.

oh, and i gave up on ganjaweed many years ago ... strongest stuff i consume these days is expresso.

The term is widely accepted as the time when a group of students at a high school in California met after class to smoke dope.

As with 9/11, the conterculture adopted the 20th of April (4/20) as their "get wrecked day" and also send greetings cards to each other....

That's very interesting. I've never heard of that before, is this only in America or Worldwide?

i don't think so. i've never been there, frankly. but those i've met generally come across as very conservative and kolot, and culturally inflexible. could be why there are relatively few in indonesia, this being a country requiring flexibility in great amounts.

Conservative, culturally inflexible... hmmm... and paranoid? Well, I am not trying to generalize people, just want to know other's opinion. No pun intended.

America is such a big place it isn't easy generalize. Somebody from The East Village is probably going to have vastly different views on the world to somebody in Hicksville Oklahoma. My experience has taught me that in general Americans are much more annoying when they are away from the Good old USA. They are in general very nice accommodating people who will go out of their way to help a visitor to their country. When they leave the comfort of the USA is when they tend to start being annoying.

I have also noticed that middle America is probably the worst dressed anywhere in the world. Although on the positive side Middle American women seem to have a gift in the art of the blow job.

I was in a small town bar in oklahoma and the barmaid there invited me back to her place after closing. I respectfully explained to Bonny the Barmaid that she was kind but a little to old for my taste. Bonny then explained to me that she was thinking more about bringing me home for her daughter to have sex with at which point she showed me her daughters picture.

See told you they were very accommodating smile
