suggestions for new categories

Postby gozer » Sat Oct 05, 2013 5:46 am

pleeeeease can we have a drugs category?

see, like for example i want to start a 10th anniversary "what is your favourite drug" thread, but is that current affairs? food? entertainment? maybe music for people who like to listen to tool when they are trippin their nut-sacks off and those of us who like to listen to mozart or schubert or hi-nrg dance mix when we mainline our morphine, dilaudid, nicomorphine, or smack and/or c-jam for that matter? then there is medical pot and all the new opium smokers, eaters, and hot-knifers.

and then we have the people who act like they just got an unwanted poke of nalline or narcan whenever we mention drugs; make it easier for them to keep their heads in the sand, i say. everybody wins.

Gozer, we don't need a drug category because you are the drug category.

Drug topics belong in either Town Vibe or Sports.

I heard that parts of the Ketamine park were closing due to the Rebublican't shutdown.

If you're talking about re-categorization, "Sports" really should be moved to it's own hermetically sealed discussion pod. Especially since there doesn't seem to be a clear disinction between sports, amateur sports, and filthy lucre.

For those who are interested in "Biking," interesting discussions are likely to be subsumed by the monolithic anerobic digester of Sports, fueled by the effluent of those who care about Sports and their discussion thereof.

That's all fine. All effluent leads to the sea, as they say, but wouldn't be helpful be able to track discussions of bicycle transportation policy or preferred commuting routes (for example) that have nothing to do with the scripted blather you're likely to hear on a barroom screen?

Which reminds me ...

I would like to see somewhere to dump essays for critique.
