      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

Time to 'fess up, what was your favorite #### back in the day?....

I really, really, liked coke. Tried crystal a few times---just waaaaay too much muchiness. Tried pot once, absolutely f'ng despised it. Paper acid twice---first time very....interesting, second time, beyond interesting. Ate a lot of reds back in the early 70's----great for sleeping, awful for surfing. Same with rainbows. Had my first 'Lude about 30 years ago. Holy shit, hadn't realized before that night that one could actually walk on the bottom of the clouds. Shit. But sex was-----f'ng bitchin. Anyways, what else. Oh yeah, had an emergency root canal done one afternoon---pain hit me real bad right in the middle of a door hanging job. Had to pay the kid next door to button everything up for my customer, cruised down from PV into Torrance and pulled into the first sign that said DENTIST in some Asian script. He wanted $500 (on a c/card), but I had two hundred cash in my pocket, so we were good to go. An hour later I'm crying in my fuking driveway---had the Nurse fill my prescrip while I laid on the kitchen floor in pain, sucking up a 16'r of Miller. Nurse comes back with some pills----'It says to take one for pain.' I took two, finished my beer------and proceeded to levitate off the linoleum and up to the ceiling. That was my introduction by fire to Vicodin....and helped me to finally understand The Valley Of The Dolls. Thank fuk I realized within 24 hours that that shit (combined with a quart of beer) is more addicting than bacon flavored, cocaine scented vagina-----so I had the Nurse swap them for something that I wouldn't love to hate so much.

 

 

She came home with Percocets. Fuck.....

I have never found a drug that makes me feel better than I do after stretching out the muscles and taking a nice deep breath of fresh air.

Dulling or misdearranging my perception has never made me feel very comfortable.

The post was thrown in sorta for the hell of it. i somewhat admire those who have had the nerve to experiment but I didn't find any long term joy in being messed up.

 

I have tried mushrooms, coke, pot, booze in a myraid of forms. I even tried smoking corn cob silk.

 

I didn't ever try LSD because , whether it is true or not, I read that you can have a trip again thirty years later when a bit of the LSD breaks loose from wherever it might be hiding...fat cells??...got a lot of 'em.

 

Mostly I just don't like the feeling of being pried loose from my senses..

 

Perhaps I am concerned I won't make it back to whatever grasp I still hold on reality.

Her name was Becca. We couldn't be in the same room together for 5 minutes without absolutely having to get it on. Bars, restaurants, night clubs, parties, you name it. If I ran into her at the grocery store, we'd be out the door and doing it in my truck or headed to her place before you could say clean up on aisle nine.. God damn, that girl was like crack cocaine.

 

It's a good thing we went to college in different cities. If we'd been where we could be together, I'd have never gone to class.

Smoked plenty of ganj, tried LSD once (the night I graduated college- 5 years of higher learning wiped out in one night!), drank like a fish, and have had 'shrooms a few times.

 

The ganj is fun but makes me lazy, the LSD was intense but kept me awake way too long, alcohol made me into an alcoholic (OK, I made me into an alcoholic), and the 'shrooms were the BEST. Was living in a crowded house and we were all kinda grumpy- we all did the 'shrooms and got along great for a day!

 

Took a Valium once and that little fucker knocked my on my ass! Felt way too good- gained an understanding of how people get too involved on prescription drugs- I flushed the ones I had left the next morning.

 

Have since stopped all of the above but for a puff now and again and if 'shrooms were offered I'd gladly accept!

 

Just said "no" to coke when it was offered- That was not the usual response! Glad I didn't try it though, I bet I would have liked it a little too much.... I drink way too much coffee as it is....

 

Does sex count? That's a bit of a pre-occupation but maybe that is just me being a guy....

It's not the device, it's the method of delivery.

 

Internet forums, Facebook, text messaging, video games etc., are definitely psychological addicting, but they're not television because they require user interaction, which keeps the brain in Beta wave mode, which are the higher frequency brain waves related to active thought.

 

Television on the other hand (or Internet television, long YouTubes, etc.) trigger Alpha wave brain frequencies, which are the ones around 10 Hz, the ones associated with sleep, except the person is awake, not sleeping. So the mind relaxes but the pulse and heart rate continue to operate at close to active waking levels. It's basically sleepless sleep, a form of hypnosis.

 

Ever since our first child, all of our televisions are permanently set to show English Closed Captioning, all the time, they practically don't know regular television without the constant parade of words on the bottom of the screen. It doesn't just help them become better readers, but it more importantly forces their brains to read the words which keeps the brain in the Beta wave state.

When I had my knee operated on in college they gave me Percodan for the pain, which was monumental. Percodan barely made a dent in it and allowed me to sleep one hour in three before the pain woke me up again. A few days later I switched to asperin and saved a few Percodan just in case I ever "needed" it. Granted I was in college at the time, but I found with a percodan under my belt I could fuck all night! And it made me feel like a God!

 

I've tried a few other things along the way. Some better than others but nothing compared to that. smoked some hash under glass in Europe and that was pretty nice.

 

Don't miss any of it now though. The coffee in the morning and Wine/Gin/Rum/Scotch in the evenings is all I care to have

Pot till PCP scare - so yeah, scared straight

Coke twice - first time YeeHaa! 2nd time, the dealer had cut it so much there was nothing to it. Figured if a buddy could rip me off, I didn't need it.

So pretty much stuck to booze. Had valium pre-op once, intravenous, levitated off the table. Seems once in awhile someone connects with Valium as an upper. That's me. Took 2 guys to hold me down for the 15 minutes it took to calm. So can't take that.

 

Pain meds for me are just that - I never get much of anything off of them other than pain relief. Ocycodone does nothing for me

 

Pretty boring I guess.

Nope. I'll unproudly admit to smokin' da eeeeevil weed some half dozen times and trying coke. The inadvertent brownie poisoning was one of two blackout episodes, the other being a Tequila drinking game with a hot redhead. She kicked my ass - and I didn't get anywhere near hers.

I found with a percodan under my belt I could fuck all night!

I still have a few of those left over from my shingles match on 2009.

Popping one and fucking all night sounds great.

 

How long after I take the pill will the girl show up? Does she expect dinner and a movie first?

Will she also be visible to my friends?? <<< good for the reputation and image.

 

Will my wife know she is /was there all night??

 

Can I take occasional naps?? All night is a long time,

Never did recreational drugs (except alcohol and caffeine). Back in high school, my dad sat me down with the pharmacopeia for a no bullshit, just the facts, talk. After that, acid, coke, uppers, downers, horse, and all the other "hard drugs" just seemed to be not nearly worth the risk. Thought about trying weed, but choking on second hand smoke was more than enough to keep me away. I mean, to each is own, but how can you stand inhaling that shit? Like gulping smoke from burning tires.

 

My one "experience"... got a wicked bad chest cold, winter of freshman year. Went to campus infirmary. Doc gave me a prescription for enough Hycodan to sedate a horse. Told me to go to class, but avoid excess exertion by walking slowly (!!!). Never did make it to class. In fact, hardly made it out of bed for three days. How I managed to not piss the bed, I'll never know. It did kinda suppress the cough, though. My dad (pharmacist) went bullshit when I told him what and how much I'd been prescribed. Definitely confirmed my disinterest in playing with opioids.

This pretty much sums up what I have been through. Except the testing bit. I have not smoked pot since x-mas and to be truthful I could take it or leave it. Never had to worry about being tested for work (being self employed has some advantages)

As for the other junk been there done that, never say never but I am way past making the calls during the week trying to set up the fun for the week-end. Having now entered my 4th decade I am happy to be here. I have the experience of my past to be able to talk frankly and honestly with my kids about most drugs and the effects. I also do not hold the hard and fast just say no rule, drugs where fun when I took them and I had some incredibly good times when they where available.

The one drug I really regret taking is Cigarettes, that is the one fucker I am really struggling to throw out. I quit every few weeks but just fail. Nicotine is the only drug I have ever taken that I regret trying. I will never quit quitting but it the the hardest by a metric truck load to quit.

Coke is too good...and too short. All it does is make you want more, which is a poor effect for a drug!

 

I suppose different sacraments are good at different times in life, but I'd have to say very pure psilocybin, which was going around when I was about 17 years old, was the best.

 

Basically, it showed you the meaning of life......and made you feel that you had to be surrounded by green or nature. In other words, it grounded you and tied you in with what we (humans) really are.

 

You didn't go up and come down. You learned something and it somewhat stuck....

 

That beats all that other chit, although these days I prefer a light smattering of anything with an opiate in it. That's to make the body and back feel 10-30 years younger, not for the high!

Legendary 'ludes.....

 

When I was a kid my mother's giant avocado-green station wagon had a license plate that read "SDP-714" She always said it

was short for "Super-Depressant 714!"

 

We called it the "Lude-Mobile" for years before we even knew what it meant...

Ok, Lude story.....

 

I discovered Ludes....very early!

 

Here's the story. Back when I was about 13 years old (1966-7), my folks didn't know what to do with me - and since Dad was into Freud, he sent me to talk to a shrink in downtown philly....

 

Well, i was leaving the office and walking down in the fire escape and, lo and behold, the mailman had dropped some sample packets of pills. I had no idea what they were, but I scooped them up and brought them home to show my older bro!

 

We carefully read he labels and determined, to be real safe, we'd try 1/2 of 1. Sure enough, they worked.

 

Luckily, my Qualude days never went beyond taking one or two. I saw the way other people acted when they took them and decided I didn't want any of that!

 

For those who stayed away from drugs - here's a quickie so you can pat yourself on the back. A guy we knew at high school got into ludes really heavy. One day we heard that he ran over a guy with his van...while stoned on them, of course!

 

I don't know what happened to him criminally, but when I saw him in the halls and elsewhere after that, I could tell that he'd probably never get over the horror of killing an innocent because of his stupidity.

 

Speaking of ludes, the best read about them (and coke) is probably Wolf of Wall Street. This guy is so into Ludes that he pays 10's of thousands of dollar for a few original ones. He creates massive havoc while stoned, including sinking a Megayacht he leased over in Europe. One day he ran out and sent his Secretary back to the states (I think in a private jet) to get the bag and bring it back to London.

 

Of course, you'll love the BJ's under the table at lunch for all the employees, etc. too....guy ran a big brokerage house. Think about him next time you trust Wall Street.

When I was 15 my folks, thinking they could really straighten me out, sent me to a private school in downtown philly. Of course, such a place has MORE access to those things which he was trying to keep me away from.

 

So, we are sitting around on the steps after school and some guy tells us "hey, there is this pharmacy at 14th and Allegheny (north philly, bad areas) where the guy will sell you qualudes over the counter. You just walk up and ask for them"....

 

I don't usually have the nerve to do stuff like that, but I jumped on the El (elevated train) and headed up to Allengheny. After walking in circles building up my nerve, I walk in and say "one bottle of qualudes, please?". The guy puts them on the counter and asks me for $29.95, which I payed gladly......

 

That was somewhat expensive for the time, but I guess if you expect such things OTC, it's not too bad....

Looks like the perp was kicking the shit out of him at time of shooting. Odd the perp would attack a man with a gun. That takes balls unless he didn't see it.


Well he was a fuking pot head, so ya never knows what goes thru the minds of the stoned....

If something goes through your mind when you're stoned, you are doing it wrong.

I'm pretty innocent really.

 

Shrooms once in in HS. Would have done them again, but didn't care enough to pursue or ask friends to pursue more.

 

Then weed in college on a fairly regular basis, weekly to 2x a week basis. I did enjoy weed, not so much as a freshman as the supply was absolute shit dirtweed, but in later years had friends who had "contacts" that sold a good variety of different strains although mostly NL5 and Blueberry. Nothing exotic by any means, but much better than the utter shit purchased from the really shady.

 

Like the time one of my friends brought a bag of "weed" saying he bought the "expensive stuff", that should have been a big fucking red flag, but i did the stupid....it was laced with OPIUM, no really opium he went back to the guy to ask. I'm glad it wasn't PCP, but to say i lost an entire day would be generous. That is where i drew my line a little stoned where your senses temporarily overtake your thoughts is relaxing, completely stoned where you just float isn't for me. I quit easily about a month prior to enlisting and have only smoked once since and that was while out of the country.

 

Never tried anything harder in terms of immediate effects.

 

On the legal side i have taken a grand total of three percocets, i can see how they could lead to addiction more so than weed. I was in the army by this point, first week in my unit, in the first PT run i was weaving all over the road. Much to the amusement of those present. I tossed the bottle after that.

 

Caffeine, nicotine i am very much addicted to. I cut out the caffeine once and after about 3 days of headaches was fine, nicotine on the other hand, holy hell. Maybe a half dozen earnest attempts, nicotine is a dirty bastard of a drug and i dip which means the quit smoking patches don't even come in doses large enough to matter.

 

Alcohol i drank a LOT in my younger years now it is completely in moderation, about a six pack a week.

 

My employer drugs tests randomly so i can not enjoy my favorite from back in the day, decent weed.

Don't ever quit quitting! That is my motto for the evil cigarettes, I have been 2 weeks one day with out a smoke. I am over the addiction part that is easy, it is the habit and the actual fact that I enjoy a cigarette is the one I have trouble dealing with.

I am hopeful to stay off them but I will not beat myself up if I fail, I will just try again in a few months. I usually fall back into the dirty little habit when the smokers cough stops for a few days. Big mistake but I fall for it every time.

I had two addictions in my youth..... Flying and pussy. When I wasn't doing one, I was thinking about doing the other.

 

All you drug addicts can reminisce about your visions and good feelings and stuff - but the biggest "high" I ever had is crossing a mountain ridge UPSIDE DOWN at 100' or less doing 550 knots while pulling 6 gs down the backside and having to turn back upright before hitting the ground. Talk about addicting...... fuk - I could do that everyday of my life!

 

 

Best part starts at about 3:30, but the whole thing is pretty good.


Cocaine.... pot..... meh! Adrenaline is the best drug, orgasm with a hot chick is the best "mellow". :D

Pot in highschool. I mean ScHool. Coke was nice on occasion. Dime would last a month, very occasional use/ enjoyed the he'll out of it. Really good job with really high security clearancemade those thing not worth it.

Pot- from high school till about 34 years old regularly, now maybe a few times a year. Coke, meh if free ok but nothing I would pay for. Freebasing was a strange experience.

LSD, lots in the military and a bit afterwards.

Shrooms- once or twice a year - just ordered some online for my semiannual trip.

Snorted a line of Heroin in Hawaii once- undecided.

I know lots in the San Diego sailing community who did meth regularly including myself for a few years but most would not admit to it. Weed really helps if you want to get away from that stuff.

Watched my FIL die - too young - from a stroke. Not a pretty scene. Slow-motion suicide by Marlboro Reds. Would not quit no matter how much his daughters begged him.

 

I'd suggest a visit to a hospital to get a preview of your future. And then using whatever aids you need to stop permanently. You do NOT want to be there.

No illegal drugs here, but a couple of experiences with prescribed drugs.

 

IV Valium when I had my wisdom teeth pulled - Doc told me I'd be conscious throughout the procedure, but would not remember anything. That about summed it up. I have a vague recollection of everything moving in super-fast motion for a few seconds. Then I came to with a hangover equalling the one you'd get drinking from the rag used to wipe down the bar.

 

Morphine & Demerol (sp?) - After I broke my back, before the surgery. The morphine just made me sort of drowsy. Nothing else. Then they upgraded me to Demerol. Same thing, but marginally better for pain control.

 

Oxycontin + Vicodin - Prescribed to me after my back surgery. Took the first dose after I got home from the hospital. Well, it numbed the pain alright. It also turned me into a useless lump for the next four hours. Came out from that one with a puddle of drool down the front of my shirt and a comforting revelation: that I would never, ever have to worry about getting addicted to painkillers. It was not a "scared straight" moment, more of a "why would one ever want to do that?" moment.

you are so special man, so special...

 

I loved jumping out of planes, but in the military the line for the ride was entirely too long, the ride was too short and the landing was anything but soft.

Would still take that over anything illegal, yes adrenaline is a hell of a drug.

 

I don't think anyone is comparing activities with drugs, i'd rather spend the day on the water or on my bike than stare at walls having an out of body experience. However after a long week it would be nice to sit by the shore and just relax with a bit of that devil weed.

 

No need to get all high and mighty, since in the end all that really tell us is that you have no actual experience related to drug use and, if anything, are rather insecure.

You are correct - I have no actual experience with it (other than trying a few joints in HS and college) and have no desire. Hated it. But I hate smoking, except for the very occasional cigar.

 

I'm not being high and mighty.... just saying there are better "highs" out there than having to smoke, snort or inject your way to happiness. Whatever, floats your boat though.... enjoy. I just never saw the attraction.

You may be missing the point here - one can enjoy the best of both worlds. I raced bicycles for years and was an avid bump skier and almost always smoked dope before, during and/or after and can't say that it detracted in any way from the experience. Adrenelin, cannnabis and lactate acid all go together quite well in my experience.

I spent my youth at a certain institution whose mandate is to train Navy officers, I then served for a number of years in the Navy.

 

I have never tried any illegal drugs ever.

 

I don't know if I missed out on something or not.

 

Try some weed, don't smoke the whole joint, start with a couple hits.

One hit is not quite enough, two is way too much....

And another thing: Don't smoke "spice." It's not synthetic weed, it's smokable acid. I hear the military smokes tons of it because it's not piss-testable.
