This place has sure gone to hell

I remember when Discussionist was full of vim and vigor and had a "can do" attitude! Oh how the mighty have fallen!

A bunch of pot smoking hippies complaining about Agnew. But we were united.

10. I didn't start smoking pot until the Reagan days

but then I got married and stopped.


Here's to hoping for legalization in my state!

35. Ambivalent

Our kids are grown and as long as i don't lose my job she really doesn't care. She quit when she decided she wanted to have kids but has never been morally opposed to it.

We both gave up doing a lot of things we liked in order to have our full attention on our kids. They're grown and have their own lives/families now so we have a bit more freedom.

36. The things we do for our children!

I stopped drinking alcohol of any kind until my kids were out of school, driving, acting as adults. My oldest is married. My youngest still lives at home. My son is a musician. So yes, a little freedom has returned!

In fact, I noticed that you have a long quote from that clip as your sigline. Well done!

And don't I know you???

18. It took me a while to edit it to 400 characters.

And Skinner still cheated me of Izard's full name! Bastid!

I would hope you know me, Peggy. I have another name elsewhere online that is part centaur, and part Gryneos

I'm the kind of person, though, that sometimes needs the obvious spelled out. I've met some nice and friendly people so far. Still don't know if I already know them or not
