The Tunsil thing is fascinating. Rumor is it's his Step Dad or Father in Law. The part that intrigues me is the screenshots of text messages between him and the Ole Miss coaches where he's asking for money and receiving it. A reporter asked him if he'd taken money from coaches and he admitted to it.
Ole Miss should be getting something close to the SMU death penalty. We all knew it was happening.
I've watched more hockey the past month than the rest of my life combined probably. I'll watch any series that's on (especially the West). So happy the Ducks lost. Choke artists. I've been to two playoff games so far and I'm going tomorrow night. It's so intense, I might die of a panic attack at one.
Well we make up for it by having to play the Blues or Blackhawks in the second round. Hockey playoff setup is by far the dumbest in any sport. The top 3 teams are guaranteed to play each other before the conference finals this year. Congrats Kings. Enjoy the bullshit.
I've gone from watching no hockey to owning season tickets. My buddies talked me into getting them. Now I get to go to all the playoff games. (well half, I'm splitting with another guy) Going on Saturday. I've been to one Stars playoff game (2 years ago against the Ducks) and it was the best live sporting event I've been to. Can't wait.
So I have a fun story and some questions at the end... Last weekend I went to Seattle to hang out with some people. While there, I thought I'd buy legal marijuana just for the principle of it (yay liberal society and all). I've smoked pot probably 20-25 times before, but for some reason this pot had effects on me that don't make any sense. After smoking it, I walked up stairs with my cousin and his roommate to their living room. I immediately felt the effects and said, "Dude I'm really high. OMG I'm way too high." Then I stood up. When I stood up, I felt like I lost control of my body and repeated the same 5 seconds over and over and over again for what felt like months if not longer. I would look at the roommate, then at a painting on the wall, then a flag, then at my cousin who was smiling. At the end of the 5 seconds, I realized I had seen it before, but then it would start over and I would forget.
After repeating these same 5 seconds for, again, what felt like forever, I began to believe these 5 seconds were all I'd ever experienced. I would try to think of something before these 5 seconds and I wouldn't be able to. The loop would start over again. I began to question whether this was hell. That hell is just an infinite loop of a few moments as you realize you're in hell and then forget again repeatedly.
Eventually I focused hard enough on one object in the room to just stare at it and stop the loop. It was so hard to do and I remember feeling a physical pain like a tingling sensation just trying to keep from repeating the same events. After a long struggle, I got out of the house but I couldn't see or feel anything. I began to see a street and cars and other houses but it was like I was creating them myself.
I snapped out of it for a second when my cousins roommate came and got me and took me back in the house. I was so relieved to be out of what felt like torture and I wanted to tell them about it, but I didn't want to sit in the living room that I'd been looking at for months (in my mind). They told me only about 10 minutes had passed. We went downstairs and, as I started to tell them about it, the time loop began again and I got really depressed because I couldn't control it. I don't remember much after that, but I punched and head butted their front door (which they locked for good reason) trying to get out of the time loop/hell. In the process I ended up with stitches on my hand. I didn't fully come out of it until the doctor was tending to me about 90 minutes later.
1. How the hell could marijuana do this to someone? I bought it from a dispensary; it's not like it could have been laced with something more intense.
2. How is it possible to experience time like this? Even with the influence of drugs, I don't get how 10 minutes could feel like months or years. Anyone know any studies done on this?
This game is insane and feels like a video game right now. Also, Nantz and Simms are the worst announcing team of any of the major networks. So glad I don't root for an AFC team. If they were working the Cowboys-Niners game in the late 80's, right after the great catch they'd be like, "I dunno, did he get his feet in bound? Is there a penalty for celebration? What just happened?"
Football players are dumb.
