    It used to be based on federal US law. Local jurisdiction taking over is a big shift. Soon we'll be using CFC to organize dead drops.

    I'm pretty sure that at this point Google AdSense is well beyond caring. I would be really surprised if a cannabis vendor that wanted to advertise through Google got turned down.

    Even then, your skin color often has a significant influence on how much the cops care.

    I've gotten ads for MJ on this site in the past. I think they fixed it though. :(

    I can't imagine Google turning down the ads when I am dead certain that every Google employee on their way to work passes multiple billboards advertising cannabis.

    A friend tricked me and got me a bunch of things for Christmas.

    The tricking part is a rant. But the stuff he got... well... I can't really... it's good that I have them. And it was very generous even with the strong US dollar.

    I've replaced all my boxers with holes now, as well as all my socks with holes. I actually have enough socks now to last me at least two years before needing to worry about holes again. And I can get rid of all my tight socks now.

    I also got two bath towels.

    A bed desk that's actually wide enough for my thunder thighs and that doesn't have a hand rest on the right side.

    And a Chromebook! For writing! I've wanted a dedicated "writing device" for so long but it always felt extremely frivolous. It'll be nice to separate something from the Nightmare Rectangle.

    We were supposed to go halfsies on the Chromebook, and he said he'd think about it. Then he did this. :( :)

    I linked to my wishlist with the proviso that he pick one and if it's expensive, he lets me contribute. He agreed.

    How can I trust someone who'd lie to me so easily? :shake:

    Now, if you had a Steam wishlist, someone might be persuaded to do the same there. :xmascheers:

    Fortunately, GOG still allows it, even years after the fact, though the price does change slightly from what I've noticed.

    That's how it should be. :( Just convert to the strongest currency and let anyone buy any game.

    But noooooo. Gift cards.

    Gift cards are only good for paying off your tax bill with the IRS/CRA. :mischief:

    Rave: I just checked my savings account. I got 5 cents of interest!

    ...That seems a silly thing to rave about. :crazyeye:

    Now that you are wearing holes rather than boxers and socks, can you tell us how holes are sized? Does one size fit all or do they come S, M. L, XL?

    I’m just saying wearing a thin summer dress to bed, freeballing right into the breeze of the fan, is a pleasure the patriarchy doesn’t want you to discover.
