    made sure to tag this one……….High data usage B)

    It was funny to me that Baker, California was mentioned in this episode because I learned what weed smells like at a gas station in baker; I was like 8 and I asked my dad what was that weird smell and he looked at my mom as to verify if I was old enough to know what it smelled like, before telling me it was marijuana

    Also the last time I was in baker the thermostat was also covered in bugs!

    and also, those are some decent gyros in that greek restaurant in baker (lol)

    More like Baked, California

    What if game Palladiums where like barcades but they sell weed instead of the alcohols?

    @“hellomrkearns”#p39519 lol here i am with my obligatory comment:

    my parents live within walking distance of that Playdium

    @“whatsarobot”#p39522 Awesome. It closed this year, didn't it?

    @“hellomrkearns”#p39526 it did indeed :frowning:

    Wow. I just listened to Brandon‘s grand submission to the lightening round and oh boy. That might be the hardest I’ve laughed in a while.

    @“hellomrkearns”#p39528 It was all worth it

    only partially on topic but does anyone else here habitually look for weed related names in the credits of movies? each one I find is a treasure, but my favourites so far are leon rippy, ron pipes ii and james van trees jr.

    I rarely log in to the forums, but I needed a place to put my lightning round submission out into the world:

    Legend of the Mystical Ganja

    @“hellomrkearns”#p39528 @“Jaffe”#205 the Hashish Cap was robbed

    it‘s nice that while the ic hosts don’t smoke weed themselves, they can participate and be supportive. It's like when I get invited to a bar mitzvah

    ganja gaiden

    blimmonetta

    blimmle blammle

    outer milds

    road hash

    resin-dent evil

    final fantasy crystal _chronic_les

    @“billy”#p39557 you might not know how weird it is, as another billy, to come on here and see “billy posted”/“billy liked”/etc. and for my brain to reliably trip over that and go “wait, that's not me”. every time!
