I was bored and ran into an article that just had clickbait written all over it .. Marijuana Use Linked to Two Deaths . Hmm ok, thats a new one to me , I will give it a click since maybe they had killer munchies. reading on.
Although marijuana may have a reputation as a relatively harmless drug, a new case report links it to the deaths of two young men in Germany.
From the department of I just want to make a name for myself from the subdivision of facts pulled out of my ass. Now that the article has my attention with that starter I read onwards with expectation of massive death and destruction warnings on how weed will kill everyone on the planet
Toxicological examinations concluded that the men were under the influence of cannabis before they died, and traces of THC — the main active ingredient in marijuana — were found in the men’s blood and brain tissue, the researchers wrote in the report.
Well that tends to happen when you smoke weed, it just doesn’t blow out your ass when you inhale although that would be an interesting side effect. But, Yet this article still has not shown causality that would make me go “HOLY SHIT WEED IS GOING TO KILL ME!”. Alright article you win this round , I’ll keep reading.
In both cases, the deaths were related to cardiovascular complications. In one of the deaths, a 23-year-old man without a history of health problems suddenly collapsed while using public transportation, and died after 40 minutes of unsuccessful resuscitation efforts, according to the case report based on postmortem investigations. The man had a small amount of marijuana in his pockets when he was found, according to the researchers at the Institute of Legal Medicine, University Hospital Duesseldorf in Germany, who reported the case.
Well now he had weed in his pocket… Highly observant but still no connection to the death . Also attention given to no doctors instead “researchers” . Usually when doctors figure out some live altering complication they slap there name all over that shit with “HEY LOOK AT THIS SHIT HERE! I found something that will kill everyone and I’m the guy that found it”. The second case gets even more sketchy for the case of weed VS death.
In the second case described in the report, a 28-year-old man was found dead at home by his girlfriend. An ashtray, rolling paper and a sealable plastic bag containing remnants of marijuana were found next to the body. The man had occasionally used cannabis, the researchers wrote. He had also abused alcohol and drugs, such as amphetamines and cocaine until about two years before his death, they wrote.
Are you fucking kidding me? The fact that the man had smoked weed was more prevalent than the fact that the man had smoked/snorted/inhaled/swallowed/rectally Whatevered fucking all the things that can blow your heart out.. Article I’m loosing you. The fact that the guy did drugs was what likely caused damage to him before he even thought about the cheeze-its in the fridge after taking his first drag off of the weed. Well for fucks sakes lets keep reading and see where journalistic integrity gets you. …
“After exclusion of other causes of death, we assume that the young men died from cardiovascular complications evoked by smoking cannabis,” the researchers wrote.
“We assume the deaths of these two young men occurred due to arrhythmias evoked by smoking cannabis,” but this assumption does not rule out that the men were predisposed to cardiovascular risks, they wrote.
Wait? what?? For fucks sake you just wrote this whole article to completely contradict itself in one sentence… NO SHIT, There was a predisposition using cocaine and amphetamines leaves you just at a slight risk of a predisposition. Again, Without naming names, who wrote this shit anyways ghost written by Mr Mackey…
Nikolas P. Lemos, the chief forensic toxicologist for the San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office, said there have been confirmed cases in which marijuana has had harmful effects on the heart.
“The potential cardiotoxicity of cannabis has been reported in peer-reviewed abstracts as well as scientific proceedings before, including by my team,” Lemos said.
Well fucking lah dee dah ! A name Holy shit Dr Lemos ! But this line of text is irrelevant! No hard numbers and its just weasel wording. Saying something happened without the statistics to back it up makes it look so much more foreboding. Using this wording I could say that there is a chance of death by having coffee squirt out of your ass and eyeballs because its happened. Moreover I am willing to bet if they used the statistics to back this up it would make it look terrible and give it a statistical chance worse than getting killed by a lightning strike (1 in 700,000), a shark bite (1 in 265,000,000 ) , or a coconut(1:250,000,000) vs the odds of winning powerball (1:275,000,000). How shitty is that.. you are more likely to die from a coconut than win fucking powerball! The odds of dieing from marijuana have to be astronomical.. Meaning you have a better chance of winning powerball! Fuck it game over, I give up on this trash if I read anymore I’ll die of stupidity contracted from Dr. Lemos which is statistically still higher than dieing from marijuana…….
Lemos said he hopes the report will raise awareness of the potential health complications of marijuana use. “I am delighted to see this additional work in hope that medical examiners, coroners and physicians will realize that they need to collect specimens, test for cannabis in post-mortem fluids and consider the contributions of cannabis in the death investigations.
“We simply cannot, any longer, adhere to the old mentality that ‘marijuana does not kill,” Lemos told Live Science. “We are now seeing evidence from my office and elsewhere that it just might.”
Wait What.. why did I keep reading this… My brain hurts. “From my office…. and Elsewhere” WHERE!? at Dr lemos ‘s house while he was taking a shit going “how can i put myself on the map !” . These people are something else… Statistically typing these letters have a higher fatality rate over a lifetime than this shit. Wow.
My final thought to this insanity. Did fox news write this “peer reviewed” paper with Dr Oz as a sponsor?

I’ve touched in the past of personal issues, and while I do not go into details, things are progressing. While the person whom has caused me the most trouble has quieted down, that person still occasionally makes some noise that drives me mad.. I’ve got myself some momentum and have been slowly getting things in order, to which has been the slowest of all things.
Just a short post but , none the less a post of things .

I’ve posted in the past about my goings in life… Rather Cryptically but nonetheless I’ve posted about it. Things are still the same as they have been. A bit quieter, A bit of new, a bit of old, Trying to rebuild my life from near scratch. You would figure in almost a year things would calm down or go away … No such luck, Its a painful thing, and I live with the hate thrown at me every day for crazy shit I’ve had nothing to do with. While this life is a new, and trying to rebuild and set a base for myself, Its a day to day struggle where I wake up each day and remind myself to move forward and not dwell in the past. I still want to be left alone by this person and they may never understand or even understand what damage they have done. As I work myself to the next step, I’ve finally followed up and started to update this site on a semi regular basis and while maybe no one reads this I am trying to get myself back into the swing of things.
On that note, updates will keep coming to the site as i try to find my place with the site again. After taking such a long break from coffeecommander I feel like I’ve slipped in my abilities with posts. While I can vomit out a 900 word post I am just feeling that I slipped where I could get more across in less words.

Everywhere you look these days you hear about that newfangled cloud thing…. and most people ask what the hell is the cloud. I tell them its a pile of shit buzzword. Watching TV you see the Microsoft commercials about the cloud and how you can access your stuff at home… Or your job… or the moon whatever the fuck.. Here’s and example of said “cloud”
For those whom have had there head buried in the sand or are quite possibly dead… this innovation is as old at the internet it self(of current not arpanet you silly ass).. its called network storage. Introduced in the 1980s
Network-attached storage Connects to Local Area Network via:
Hard Drives via one of:
Common manufacturers HP
Yes this amazing new cloud of bullshit buzzwords yay!
And this.. hmm this is not “cloud” like .. the fact these people are accessing there pc at home tells me …. Remote desktop .. YAY MORE OLD TECH CALLED CLOUD! Mind you the guy says “I just brought up our PC at home” yeah… that’s safe.. you’re flying to who the hell knows where and your leaving a PC on 24/7 while your away from the house, when the PC overheats and sets the house on fire – Your house will be a cloud! YAY CLOUD!!
This should be called the windows FartCloud technology
Microsoft’s idea of the cloud is pretty much rebranding old technology and calling it new.. Some of the other cloud innovations here are just blatantly scary , Such as software as a service .. that’s pretty much a baaaaaaaaaaaaad thing.. Your Office software you bought.. You know the 365 one … You don’t own it. at least the could portion.. also when Office 366 comes out.. and they shut down 365 … Forced upgrade… since your only paying for a service. your stuck in an upgrade cycle for money … Also you will have zero expectations of privacy .. Your account gets hacked? your shit is good as stolen.
What companies are banking on is that you buy into the cloud without any research thinking “Hey this is cool wizbang tech!”
When it comes down to office level this is going to be a nightmare.. as to finding your document or having documents that are not supposed to be public leaking out to the public, since the information would be on the “cloud” it maybe a passworded folder and you give it out and someone cleans out the office bank account because the boss left the banking information in the “Cloud”.
Better yet.. this is all on the internet.. the office connection goes down and productivity goes to zero since no one can access the files..
All these “cloud” services are going to open a black hole when some random company hosting your cloud goes out of business and you cant access your data anymore. not to mention there will likely be a monthly/yearly price to pay for this rather than paying a one time costs.. Its Like renting a car that you have no control over and only can do simple things on like turn on the lights and honk the horn yet your paying a cost X infinity , rather than a one time license cost. These companies will at first seem cheaper than buying software outright but when you figure that over a period of months or even years . the “cloud” costs will greatly exceed the software costs.
And I’ve said it many times… the cloud is just rehashed shit with rainbow farts and ponies with glitter just to stuplify the average user into thinking he is getting something better than it really is.
The risks building a company around the cloud is just insanely risky … From buying ultra cheap terminals that can only access the cloud, to having to build a connection that can handle massive amount of data throughput. if you have a company of 100 people all using the fartcloud you need 100 networked computers that has a zero lag time connection to manipulate data. if you have a crowd-sourced project with lag you will have 50 people fixing one problem and not realized that the other 50 just did the same thing and wasted about an hours of productivity due to each person wasting 30 seconds fixing a problem that was fixed by 1 person.
The idea of the cloud is just totally not a good idea in its current form since corporations are not looking at this as a productivity tool but more as a subscription for cash run.. since they have to sell nothing and get a fuckton of money.
In the end I really hope people understand what the cloud is and its not anything new nor is it worth it in any means of the word.

In the early half of 2009, I purchased Teva aravalli mens shoes. For years I have worn Teva shoes since Timberland shoe quality went downhill. Now since I do not drive a car, quality of shoes are important to me.
Around Mothers Day in 2009 I purchased these shoes and out of the store they were very comfortable. but, after a month these shoes started to fall apart which aggravated me. The glue to hold the sole together had was very inferior due to the fact that the more you walked the more that the sole separated from the shoe.
After I had returned the first pair I figured that the shoes were a fluke. In june I the second pair and those too fell apart in no time. Since I needed shoes and the older Teva shoes I had some holes in them, the retailer I bought the shoes from did everything in there power to help me out, but to no avail. finally I had emailed Decker shoes the parent company of Teva figuring that i’d get no response. About a week late to my surprise I received an email back
Thanks for your email. Honestly. We really appreciate you taking some time to connect with us and share your feedback.
First, I’m sorry to hear of your most recent issues with Teva products. You are absolutely correct in your frustration, we definitely owe you a huge apology and a new pair of shoes. I hope you will accept both from me and know that I will help in finding a resolution. Teva prides itself on high performance, quality and, as a sign of our camaraderie, our customer service. I’m sorry to hear we fell short in these department for you.
As you may know, the Aravalli is no longer available in our current line. However, I would be happy to replace your shoes with a pair from our current selection. I would like to offer something like the Riva Leather eVent or the Riva eVent. You can check both out here. If these aren’t exactly what you’re looking for, just let me know if something else stands out.
Once you choose a style, please let me know your size and address for shipping. I’ll go ahead and get these out as soon as possible. Also, for all of your troubles, I would like to also extend an offer for a pair of our Mush flips. I know it’s starting to change seasons but year-around these are a definitely a treat for your feet.
Thanks again Mike for reaching out. We’re glad to hear from you and I apologize again, on behalf of Teva, for your troubles.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Teva Public Relations

After a few email exchanges Teva sent me a pair of Teva Riva Event shoes, These shoes are amazingly comfortable, A little tight at first but after you break in the shoes. they are very light, durable, and weatherproof. I really have to hand it to Teva/Deckers shoes for helping me out and fixing this problem with my shoes. Really as far as shoes go I never thought of Teva for shoes, I used to use Timberlands for shoes but, as there quality went downhill I was happy to find this brand.

Microsoft has been flapping there PR mouth over there new search engine bing. After the failed livesearch and another companies shit fest of a search engine. It seems like Microsoft has learned a thing or two about search engines but, not much. It was more like “lets just rip off another popular search engine. ” Microsoft has been smearing there new Bing.com everywhere, Hulu is running ads , likely there is ads on TV . but, it appears that bing will be not ignored like cuil was, Microsoft will likely force bing down our throats every way possible. Just to give an idea how microsoft will pull is.
- Windows update will force some update as “critical” to internet explorer forcing bing to the front
- Update MSN clients to have bing built in
- Windows 7 will likely have it forced on the desktop
- Come out with some goofy firefox plugin (maybe already done mystery plugin for firefox had come out *cute stealth install too*)
hemantm writes “A routine security update for a Microsoft Windows component installed on tens of millions of computers has quietly installed an extra add-on for an untold number of users surfing the Web with Mozilla’s Firefox Web browser.”
Looking into the name bing the first definition that comes up on dictionary.com is
As funny as that is , Bing is almost an identical ripoff of Google.
the result pages look almost EXACTLY the same. Microsoft has made an attempt to make a search engine but, its a blatant ripoff of Google. Playing around with Bing it seems alright but, again looking at the search engine there’s no fucking difference. The supposed Smart search engine that bing is just tries to give you the same results. Yes there are features in this search engine but Google already does 99.99% of bings search results.
Do we need another Google? NO, if Microsoft actually made something unique it would be one thing, At least cuil made an attempt at being unique. In order to do something better with the search engine Microsoft should try something different than work from there with a dynamic interface that takes opinions from users.
But my vote on this search engine is no , its a shamefully blatent ripoff of google. Its insulting, microsoft has billions of dollars yet they can’t come up with there own search engine?
