interesting technique, he gets quite a low end thump by lifting that bucket.

There' a couple 'bucket players in Toronto, a few years back, there was a guy who kinda -looked- like a street guy that was out almost every night for years, crazy player, but not many knew he was actually a really amazing jazz player. I think the cityTV track with that mazing drum track was actually him in the studio. Used to love watching him. He used to play the sides, and with his feet scrape them sideways to simulate hi-hat lifts.

So, I didn't know where to post this link to a study wherein marijuana-caused highway deaths have tripled in the US in 10 years. I searched "marijuana" on the board & got 181 thread hits. Looked through a few of the latest ones, nothing seemed to fit.

As such, here it is:


Half-Baked Driving Deaths Triple in the US


Quote:
Based on data gathered from California, Hawaii, Illinois, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and West Virginia –six states that perform toxicology tests on victims involved in fatal car accidents — out of 23,500 drivers that died within one hour of a crash between 1999 and 2010, alcohol contributed to about 40 percent of traffic mortalities, and one of nine of the drivers also tested positive for marijuana.

In 2010, driving while drugged accounted for more than 28 percent of traffic deaths, which is 16 percent more than it was 10 years earlier. The drug responsible for the increase, marijuana, which contributed 12 percent, contributed only four percent 10 years earlier.
Yeah, the hyperbole is a bit over the top, but I was more interested in the statistics. Wondering what legalization is going to do. I can't help but feel those numbers are going to get worse, simply on the basis that there is really no good "instant" detection system like, say, a breathalyzer for alcohol. There seem to be breath samplers that will the detect the presence of marijuana but none that will show how much THC is in your system.

I am working right now with 59 lbs. of sweet canine sleeping on my lap. I pull out the typing tray so he can rest his head on my "mouse" elbow.

Good one, Macfury. The classic pic of a doxie at the computer was with Bridget who we bred and now lives with a neighbor who is a computer scientist.
