Those of you in the rtland Area, get your ass on public transit, and get down to the Beer Festival! Today is the last day. After drinking WAY too much yesterday, I have to resomment the "Way Down Ginger Brown". I tend to preffer the darker beers, and it's the wrong time of year for them, but I still found a couple good glasses of used motor oil. No stout's though, just a couple Porters. Still, all in all, a good crowd and good beer, and it's free to get in.

I'm just curious what our lives and culture would be like if there was no such thing drugs and inebriants.

Just think of all the artists and poets through the years, who have used absinthe, or opiates. Or, how would greek history have formed with out the Oracle of Delphi getting high to see it's visions. Or the centuries of beer and wine. Would we have ever had a surrealist movement?

Would we have as rich of a cultural history if we didn't have these same substances that the governemnt tries so hard to control and deny people? If not, what does our governemnts continued restrictions mean for the cultural wealth of future generations?

Reading about PETA members running around nude to protest Spain's "Running of the Bulls". I think PETA has it's logic all fucked up. I mean, as it is if animals are hurt or killed, we get to see naked people. Shouldn't we be rewarded with nudity? Or, at worst, have the nude protestors be really ugly, so it is incentive to be kind to animals?
