Okay.
Whoever smokes weed is probably exposed to a not-so-good environment. And they probably don't have very good parents and/or school. I feel really bad for whoever does it. You're ruining your lives, you know.
Note that centers of higher learning have some of the highest rates of marijuana use.

Didn't qqwref already settle this?

Actually, I disagree with the notion that marijuana should not be used. I've never smoked it, but it smells so sweet, and cigarettes are just for inconsiderate [expletives] that think they are more important that everyone else when they smoke at bus stops. Oh, and shouldn't this be moved to Off-Topic?

Also, this is a failthread. You're exposing younger and unintelligent people to things like drugs. Like me. But luckily, I'm not a [email protected]$$ and I won't smoke weed for all the cubes in the world.

:cool:
Read this: http://www.drugwarrant.com/articles/why-is-marijuana-illegal/ (I read this last year)That's one reason I started.
And that is completely disrespectful for saying every parent and school is bad just because people smoke marijuana.

My times were bad while under, (from 19 to 27).
I made several mistakes while in the F2L, my hands feel all mellow though, so I don't have as much control over it.
However, watching the colors come together is the best part of all this. That's the beauty of solving the cube while under. It's amazing. Just don't do it in competition though, it won't help.

Actually, I think you will find that there are many among the community that do in fact partake in the consumption of drugs.

Same meaning, what's the difference? I prefer to make myself sound less like a dropout.
You prefer to make yourself SOUND less like a dropout? Are you a dropout?

And it doesn't mean you're a dropout just because you don't type sentences like this guy..

No, but you're not disagreeing with the fact it makes you sound smarter.

I have cubed when high and strangely enough, it did not negatively impact my times very severely. It increased my average by maybe 2 seconds at most. (19 to 21 or so).

I find it feels like you're solving in slow motion, and I can see the impact of every little mistake or cube rotation I make. I don't mean to encourage the use of it, but I think it could possibly be a tool for improvement.
If it is negatively impacting your times (by about 10% it seems), what part of it makes you think that it can help you? The fact that it just seems slower? How is it different from going slow and looking ahead?
Normally when I slow down my solves to analyze what I'm doing I drop my average by about 5 seconds. But this allows me to do it while still maintaining a relatively fast speed.

Okay.

I have great parents, and I'm attending one of the top universities in Canada for Math and Computer Science. How am I ruining my life? Weed is not chemically addictive, any more than HALLS vapour mints.

This is really a really bad argument. Gambling isn't chemically addictive. It ruins the lives of many people. Smoking is chemically addictive, but doesn't ruin the lives of many people. It appears that chemical addiction has nothing to do with anything. Try again.

Well, it HAS kinda killed people.
And it hasn't.

Being struck by lightning has killed people, and it hasn't.

The point I'm trying to make is that claims of this sort have no basis whatsoever. Whether true or not, they can play no role in such a debate.
