Ancient Pot Stash

found at Neatorama via Miss Cellania, originally at MSNBC

A 2,700-year-old grave unearthed in the Gobi Desert near Turpan, China revealed the world’s oldest marijuana stash! The grave belonged to a blue-eyed Caucasian man buried with a number of valuable items.

Scientists originally thought the plant material in the grave was coriander, but microscopic botanical analysis of the bowl contents, along with genetic testing, revealed that it was cannabis.

The size of seeds mixed in with the leaves, along with their color and other characteristics, indicate the marijuana came from a cultivated strain. Before the burial, someone had carefully picked out all of the male plant parts, which are less psychoactive, so Russo and his team believe there is little doubt as to why the cannabis was grown.

Nearly two pounds of pot were found in the grave. No, it’s not fresh enough to get anyone high.

Unpublished but Irrefutable Laws

These laws are not scientifically proven, not theoretically reasonable and not professionally endorsed, but they are irrefutably true. (I've read them before, but saw them at Funtasticus recently.)

O’brien’s Variation Law: If you change queues, the one you have left will start to move faster than the one you are in now.

Cannon’s Karmic Law:
If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tyre, the next morning you will have a flat tyre.

Kovac’s Conundrum:
When you dial a wrong number,you never get an engaged one.

As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

You remember you have to mail a letter only when you’re near the mailbox.

Lorenz’s Law of Mechanical Repair:
After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch.

Anthony’s Law of the Workshop:
Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

When the body is immersed in water, the telephone rings.

The probability of meeting someone you know increases when you are with someone you don’t want to be seen with.

When you try to prove to someone that a machine won’t work, it will.

The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle arrive last

Join the forces of Evil!

I know it's a little past Halloween ;) but I wanted to share something I just found, a great site called So You've Decided to be Evil. Go there, it's a lot of fun! My favorite was VIII-Make Your Own Evil Plan.
