Yes I didposted October 11th, 2019 at 8:55 PM I actually sold some drugs and never got caught. I needed the money and it was of a one off.

Good Ole' Canada ain't perfect but its one of the best societies on Earth. There's a reason most of the people on Earth would love to have the opportunities we have. Good confessionOct 12, 2019 at 11:33pmMaybe I will too. I need the money. WellOct 13, 2019 at 2:24amwould you do it again? FreakonomicsOct 13, 2019 at 1:39pmReminds me of that part about how most drug dealers live with their parents.And if that was the norm before 2005 (when the book came out, so the data was older), then probably more true now. Except, many of them are likely homeless, instead. Welcome to the new millennium. A progressive, enlightened age.A single mom once told a story about how she needed someone to babysit for her. So she paid him in shatter. Years before legalization, obviously. Prices have come down since...It's hard out there for a pimp, amirite?But surely, pharma-grade psychoactives and synthetic drugs are still good currency. Especially in academia, where all the wealthy send their offspring. Almost half of white frosh in Harvard this year are jocks, alumni-related or donors' kids.No wonder the employers are hard-up for talent. They should hire for it, instead of meaningless degrees, and then train people to be competent and effective. But HR still hire for privilege (because like attracts like) and complain about entitled, useless drones.Maybe in another 20 years... Heh. Nah. YeahOct 14, 2019 at 9:46amThe only way anyone can afford to live in this city. Drug dealers rent 5000 dollar a month condos to sell drugs to the ever increasing homeless population. The homeless population have to break into cars and steal bikes from actual residents to feed their habit. An endless feedback loop of unaffordability and crime. Meanwhile the rich assholes who own the overpriced condos have to make sure the prices remain unaffordable to protect their "investment". @MeTooOct 14, 2019 at 3:35pmUnproductive or what I like to call a minimalist person have half the carbon footprint than a "productive" person therefore are more productive than for society. Ask yourself, does my carbon footprint override my contribution to the economy? 2050, near- to mid-term existential threat to human civilisation. Downsize if you care. @FreakonomicsOct 15, 2019 at 7:59am“Almost half”? I know its popular to trash the IVY LEAGUE these days, but where do you come up with the notion that “almost half” don’t deserve to be there? I ask because I have a family member on a fellowship at an IVY LEAGUE school and that isn’t what’s being reported. Not even close. FreakonomicsOct 16, 2019 at 9:33am@@freakonomicsQuartz, Slate, New York Magazine...And yes, 43 percent is almost half. That's exactly how it's reported.Legacies historically make up about 25 percent of the intake in many private schools, anyway. Of course that perpetuates privilege. No question.Intelligence may be somewhat heritable, but they're not even admitted because of IQ, now, are they? More like hereditary gentry. This is exactly the stuff class wars are made of. And also, typical. Ironically, a widely reported Harvard study concluded that the bottom 90 percent have no political influence in the US. And the top 10 percent wield all the power.What could go wrong? (cough, populism, demagoguery, cough, cough...) SallyKnosBestOct 19, 2019 at 9:35pmI sell everyday and I don’t see a problem with it at all... Its the only way I can have a semi-lavish lifestyle. Welcome the West Coast. More people sell them you think, don’t feel bad about it. Join the Discussion Your name Comment * your name What's your name?
