Man, this thread is one of the funniest threads I've seen here, for all the wrong reasons too.

My organs won't be any good to anyone by the time I'm through with them, I know that much...

What is it with you and health related matters RandomTroll? As you seem to like talking about them.

Are you a doctor or something?

those that die from overdosing on opiates are getting their Darwin Awards, they are doing humanity a favor by removing themselves from the gene pool, it is a hard cold fact, and from the videos i seen of people found dead it is a gruesome and sad sight to see, hard drugs is a bad way to achieve a cheap thrill that is not so cheap considering the price they pay in monetary and the cost to their health and lives lost

i think the opiate problem could be lessened by legalizing less harmful drugs like marijuana the US gov should legalize marijuana federally and encourage the states to legalize it too, make the laws similar to alcohol, no smoking while driving, no smoking in public, just buy your marijuana and take it home and smoke it at home, and marijuana has some benefits, it is a mild pain reliever much like aspirin, and also relieves insomnia, and people who have seizures have found relief using marijuana too, and most of all nobody ever died from consuming marijuana

Fundamental attribution error

a simple example of the behavior attribution error theory seeks to explain, consider the situation where Alice, a driver, is cut off in traffic by Bob. Alice attributes Bob's behavior to his fundamental personality, e.g. he thinks only of himself, he is selfish, he is a jerk, he is an unskilled driver; she does not think it is situational, e.g. he is going to miss his flight, his wife is giving birth at the hospital, his daughter is convulsing at school. Consider too the situation where Alice makes the same mistake and excuses herself by saying she was influenced by situational causes, e.g. I am late for my job interview, I must pick up my son for his dentist appointment; she does not think she has a flaw in her internal characteristics, e.g. I am such a jerk, I treat others in contempt, I am bad at driving.

i like to drink a beer or two in the evening, sometimes sip a little hard liquor, but i know my limits, i dont get drunk, i stop well before that when i am only slightly buzzed,

i dont use marijuana, and have not since the 1980's but if it was legalized in my state i would use a little at home in the evenings when all my business was done for the day
