EDUCATION + HARD WORK - DRUGS = SUCCESS & THE AMERICAN DREAM

Drew Brown encourages everyone to get high without using drugs.



And from the Christian sketch comedy show (!) Fire By Nite, this is just painful...

Harriet Head didn't have to get all dressed up just for the newscast...and also, drug-abusers love the sound of gunshots. That's a detail they got wrong. I think this is an anti-ketamine olympiad.

Lesson: janitors and fast-food workers are probably addicted to some kind of drug. Be on high alert when you order a quarter pounder with cheese or drop your kids off at school.

This reminds me of the Hipster Olympics, except this is completely misguided. This is a great blog you have here. Cheers.

The second one, with some polishing, could actually be a Mr. Show sketch?

I never thought there was a whole lot of a point to showing the world that YOU can throw a ball or jump on a stick or swim laps faster than anyone else, but that's essentially the vaunted Olympic Games in a nutshell. But apparently, spending hours each and every day stretching one's muscles and practicing one's athletic endeavours is seen as making good use of time, but practicing the ability to hallucinate and stretching out various aspects of one's mind beyond their normal limits and barriers is seen as morally corrupt.

I think if the sorts of kids who are driven to experiment with drugs were not automatically herded into the outcast set, and instead encouraged to follow their urges where they naturally lead, you'd see less compulsive drug abuse and fewer drug-related social problems happening. And this is before even getting into the legal issues of prohibition and what it does to a person to end up in jail for a year or two for smoking flowers--or longer for ingesting various fungi.

To put it more simply: what really needs to happen is for the drug experience to be dis-associated from the normal teenage urge to rebel against authority, which tends to lend itself to compulsive behaviours.

Where were these and why was I not informed? I am the single greatest trip sprinter of all time having severed the great yellow serpent from spires of destruction before my competitors in every race. Also, why all the hair names, news network?

I have to think that if there was a drug smoking friend among that group then he would probably be the one that could take that camera and actually say something interesting to it.

Sketch comedy is almost always stupid and un-funny, Christian or otherwise.
