Well, in around a 24-hour period, we've had Clarence Clemons and Ryan Dunn. I'm still banking on Charlie Sheen to round out the rule of 3.

Yeah it only took me about 2 min of research to realize those rumors are retarded. That's what I get for typing before thinking.

Good point actually. I am not un-convinced about his death again.

130 sounds like an exaggeration, i read it was 110.

Watched Haggard and gave my respects. Don't mean to sound cruel but im glad the first jackass to die did it outside of the show/movie, dying in one of their crazy stunts would be way worse.

I don't see how getting into a car with someone you know is wasted is any better than driving wasted. Your chance of dying is the same regardless.

On a more serious note though, I'm a little shocked (not really, I'm a bit of a cynic myself, but still) to see people saying they have no sympathy for Ryan Dunn. What's up with that? I guess none of you have ever driven while under the influence before? Come on really? I'm the odd man out then, I've driven drunk and/or high many times, but I'm still here. So I actually do have sympathy for Ryan Dunn, even though I still don't miss him being alive or care that he's dead.

Oh, so I'm automatically an idiot, retard, and an asshole just because I've driven a car drunk before? And someone else who has done so and lost his life doesn't deserve sympathy? I might be an asshole but I'm no retard or idiot. And out of all the times I've driven Under the Influence no one ever got hurt, so don't get your panties in a bunch. And yes, I did find it hard to believe because I don't picture straight edge kids listen to music like Deftones. Because it is pretty rare that you are not striaght edges and that you have been to parties or gotten drunk before and not driven home after, if you have good for you, but that is no reason to get all holier than thou and lower yourself to name calling.

No never have. After seeing firsthand what a drunk driver can do to a loved one...you tend to second guess being an idiot.

It's not you getting hurt I care about, it's who else you hurt.

I just don't get mentality like yours:"I've driven smashed a million times and I'm still here" That's fucked  up shit! We ;live in a world where John Lennon is murdered for being a genius and you survive for being an idiot.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: TheSeeker1080 on Jul 11, 2011, 02:32 PM
That's not the mentality at all, when I was younger I made a poor decision to drive drunk, either out of what I thought was necessity or some other reason, and I never said it was "millions" of times. You completely missed the point and were quick to jump to conclusions and become condescending and insulting. My point was: because I have driven drunk before (for whatever reason) I sympathize with someone who has lost their life while doing so. That's all. Pretty simple. I am not condoning the action or saying I still do it, or that I've done it "a million" times.

And, look how pissed you are all getting over something so trivial, you don't know me. No one was hurt the times I've driven drunk including other people (which I've said already) and yet you are so quick to name call, insult my intelligence and even go as far as to compare me to the opposite of John Lennon, saying I should be dead instead of him.

You assume too much, I'm afraid. You assume that I've done this a million times, or that I still do it, or that I don't live in the boonies, or that I look back and think it was okay because no one got hurt. None of these assumptions are correct. On the contrary I look back and consider myself lucky that no one got hurt and I was able to 'get away' with it, so to speak.

PS: John Lennon was not murdered for being a genius.

dude, the problem is that you think it's ok to drive under the influence and that other people do it, simply because of the fact that you've been lucky enough not to get into an accident. what happened to Ryan Dunn should be proof enough for you that it's a stupid thing to do.

this discussion is a little bit old, most members have said what they think about drinkin and driving. in this thread and in other threads. there were those who said "i say no to drinking and driving, i rather take a taxi, bus or train or sleep where the party's at"... and there were those who said "nah, ain't no big deal. no one has been injured so far so I continue to drink and drive til' someone gets hurt"

it was about 50/50. many before you had your opinion, nothing new, what I reacted on was that you couldn't even imagine a person who has never driven a car drunk.what's fucked up is that it's so foreign to you. that's what's new and worth mentioning at this stage.

I apologize for the "retard" thing,got out of control in the heat of the moment.I wish i'd use "mentally challenged" instead

Now it's starting to get annoying. Please learn to read. and learn the meaning of the word "condone."  I literally just posted saying "I am not condoning the action (drunk driving)." Furthermore I never said it wasn't a stupid thing to do. The real problem here is (again) what I just posted: that you assume too much. You think you know what I think, for some strange reason. As far as why other people do it, IDK, I can't answer for other people.  

ONCE AGAIN: my whole point was "because I have driven drunk before (for whatever reason) I sympathize with someone who has lost their life while doing so."  At least try to understand, because it is really not difficult.  This is a thread called "RIP" Rest in Peace. And I came to look at it and instead of people paying their respects (or whatever) I found the opposite, people making postmortem insults and saying he deserved it, or otherwise displaying an overall lack of sympathy for someone who has passed away. I happen to sympathize with Ryan Dunn's death and I stated why (multiple times now).

How mature of you..... what you quoted was me saying "NONE" of you have driven drunk, and you said "hahaha that so hard to believe, what a retard."  Now you are saying something completely different, that it was about 50/50 yet you still go on to call me a retard, when you couldn't even realize what you said before and what you said just now contradict each other. 

As you know, I am new to this board so I had no way of knowing the statistics about opinions such as drunk driving (and I'm not going to go digging through old posts).

I've driven drunk plenty of times, but never after 11 drinks, and never at 140+ mph in my Porsche GT3.  I think those were quite probably his main foibles.  If I'm feeling the least lack of confidence in my driving skills, I'm driving leaned over the steering wheel with the cruise control set exactly at the speed limit.  Haven't had any problems yet, and we all know that the underlying issue is lack of attentiveness or a poor ability-to-aggressiveness ratio, no matter what the cause: booze, weed, prescriptions, tiredness, general mental retardation, what have you.  It's just kind of bullshit to place the fault entirely on drinking and driving, and just leads to more justification for the cops to harass people and take more of their money for some ridiculous .09% stop, when those are clearly not the offenders who are the problem, anyways.

Wow, I have never heard these arguments before. I have heard people talking about privatizing the roads, but not in the context of drunk driving.

I only had time to skim through, but it's defiantly interesting. I'm not saying I'm sold, but it's interesting. Especially since some of the words in that lewrockwell.com article have literally come out of my own mouth before (e.g. that drunk drivers kill people, but so do sober drivers, and plenty of people drink and drive without killing anyone)

Did you know that out here in Cali they are giving DUIs for people SLEEPING in the PASSENGER seat of their cars while they were drunk? As long as the keys are in the car, they can do that to you. ESPECIALLY if the car is on ( say, because it's the winter and you needed heat ). I no shit know of this happening to a couple people. It's insane to me.

Post by: Variable on Jul 12, 2011, 07:49 AM
I went home (to Albuquerque, NM) a couple years ago, and heard that a man received a DUI for riding his horse, on his own private ranch, with a single beer in his hand.

I can't accept that this scenario, or giving a drunk person a DUI while they were "sleeping it off" in their car, is in any way a form of public safety. It is nothing else but harassment and a way to rake in money for a city or state. It's absolutely ridiculous. But, while I believe that many people share this opinion, few wish to speak about it publicly because they don't want to be seen as sympathizers for drunk drivers; and they know a whole shit storm would come their way from MADD and other robots who can't see past a straight line, much less outside the box.

It must be nice to be an American politician, and know that your citizens have no backbone or resolve.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: Frequency_Chemist on Jul 12, 2011, 09:28 AM
I agree, as with most things these days it revolves around money. Drunk driving is frowned upon so much these days that of course, no one wants to speak out. I would much rather have someone in their car sleeping it off then out on the roads potentially harming themselves or others. People are going to drink and as a result...will drink and drive. A person should know when they can drive and when they can't. I think that goes without saying.

Don't even get me started on we Americans. Bottom line is were to comfortable and have become lazy. In order to fight the system people would have to give up that comfort and they're not willing. So we all stand idly by well our country is drove in to the ground.

Post by: Variable on Jul 13, 2011, 08:15 AM
It's funny to me, that a woman can claim rape because a man had sex with her while she was drunk, and she said yes. The courts say that she was not able to consent to sex, because she was drunk and thus had an altered mental status, therefore she can claim that she was raped.

This pretty much says that a person who is drunk, can't make normal decisions in good judgement, thus can't be held accountable for their actions.

This is a WAY different message than what is being delivered through the drunk driving campaign. They say "to hell with your ability to make decisions you god dammed drunk. You could have killed someone." (even though you didn't, and that sober driver over there did). And "Why are we even wasting time defending this dirty-drunk-driver. That poor girl over there got herself drunk and was then raped! Rable rable rable rable rable!"
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: Frequency_Chemist on Jul 13, 2011, 08:50 AM
I never really noticed that aspect of it. All I know is that your right, it sure doesn't send a clear message. You can't choose when you sympathize with drunk decision making and when you don't.  I've always felt like the whole rape thing was a little sexist. Although what guy is going to get drunk, have sex with some random girl, and file for rape lol? Unfortunately, i've slept with chicks that I wouldn't have sober, but I deal with the concequences. Too me it's not rape from either prospective.

It's such a shame how small the club of people who understand personal responsibility is.  You'd think this type of hypocrisy would be readily apparent.  It's pretty similar to contract law, just pretty bastardized.

Quote
If a person signs a contract while drunk or under the influence of drugs, can that contract be enforced?  

Courts are usually not very sympathetic to people who claim they were intoxicated when they signed a contract.  Generally a court will only allow the contract to be avoided if the other party to the contract knew about the intoxication and took advantage of the intoxicated person, or if the person was somehow involuntarily intoxicated (e.g. someone spiked the punch).  

I do have a bit of a problem with the emboldened text, though, just because that isn't very good law; too subjective and hard to enforce.  I mean it'd have to be pretty obvious and clear-cut to just convict on that.  But that's beside the point.  You're totally right in (essentially) saying that the intoxicated person did (theoretically) put themselves in that state.  How is it anybody else's responsibility, much less how could they know whether a person is too fucked up to make a contract?  Or rather, how is it their responsibility to police your actions?  And if it is, you can just turn that concept on its head; why isn't it always everyone's responsibility to take care of everyone at any juncture?  I know people that do plenty of stupid shit while sober but could claim ignorance or lack of understanding, shouldn't someone out there be punished for not preventing it or educating them?  It doesn't make any sense.  

If I were a betting man, I think that part of contract law is where the prosecutors got the ideas for the manipulations you were talking about.

This is a WAY different message than what is being delivered through the drunk driving campaign. They say "to hell with your ability to make decisions you god dammed drunk. You could have killed someone." (even though you didn't, and that sober driver over there did). And "Why are we even wasting time defending this dirty-drunk-driver. That poor girl over there got herself drunk and was then raped! Rable rable rable rable rable!"
this just blew my fucking mind. you think about going to law school?
Actually yes. That is my exact goal in life right now. To get out of the Navy and get into law school.

Good luck trying that logic on your average person though. I have tried, only to be accused of "changing the subject away from drunk driving" or other way more ridiculous things that I don't even want to try and remember.

well, where I'm from people don't call each other meat-axe, i've never heard of this. So i'm assuming it's some foreign slang for something condescending, in which case, kindly fuck off.
Judging by the term "where I'm from...". and your too cool picture of a gun, I think it's safe to say your a meat-axe and a Schmuck.

And Variable, you're right on the mark. They just had Slut-Walks here in New Zealand (goggle it if you don't know) where the girls totally missed the point of what the canadian dude said.

There has been a case here where a chick cheated on her boyfriend, then the next morning cried rape. The poor dude (although not convicted) lost his job, all his friends disowned him and ultimatley commited suicide just from the stigma of being labeled a rapist. alvarezbassist17 you are totally on the money about girls (and people) needing to take responsability for their actions.

The picture that appears below our posts is called a signature, usually referred to as a "sig," the gun in the picture is made by the manufacturer named "SIG" it's a pun. I guess having a quote of someone saying "suck you I'm going home" is better...

"where I'm from" is not a term. I've lived all over the US and visited other countries and have yet to hear someone call me or call someone else a "meat-axe," funny how in the same post you go on to prove I was right by saying you are in New Zealand. Don't expect me to know colloquial insults from New Zealand, stick to yiddish insults like schmuck, those are more well known. Or better idea, don't be an internet tough guy and name call people on a message board. Only two types of people name call: children, and those with the mentality of a child.

If a person signs a contract while drunk or under the influence of drugs, can that contract be enforced?  

Courts are usually not very sympathetic to people who claim they were intoxicated when they signed a contract.  Generally a court will only allow the contract to be avoided if the other party to the contract knew about the intoxication and took advantage of the intoxicated person, or if the person was somehow involuntarily intoxicated (e.g. someone spiked the punch).


What about the many many cases where a dying old relative has been coaxed into giving power of attorney and/or signed over all their wealth and property to one of their children (or other member of the family) and that person then excludes the rest of the family from having anything? It happens more than you may think and courts go along with it.

Regarding being drunk and rape vs. being drunk and driving, some good points were made, but I'm not sure I can agree. It's the stigma of rape. If you are drunk and have sex with a chick who is too wasted to know what's going on I think personal responsibility should come into play, you should know you are taking a risk by having sex with said chick. Much in the same way you should know not to get in a car and drive if you are too drunk. The problem of course is when you are that drunk decision making is severely impaired. The solution is not to get to that point, there's no real reason to get so drunk to the point where you don't know what's going on and "can't be held accountable" for your actions. I'm not saying don't drink, or even don't get drunk, but why get so drunk you lose the ability to reason? It's not even fun at that point, it's just alcohol abuse and it's mostly people who are alcoholic who get to that point of intoxication.

The drunk chick who was raped can claim to be not in control of her actions thus had an altered mental state, but what if someone was drunk, had an altered mental state, claimed to not be in control of their actions, and murdered someone? (I don't mean with a car I mean physically killed them) Like say they were drunk got into a fight which led to murder. Wouldn't they still be charged with manslaughter? I'm pretty sure they would. So in that situation even though they were drunk, they are still held accountable.

Ok, a couple of really good conversation points here. I agree with you in a lot of ways (but probably mostly philosophically)

When I said "drunk" I didn't mean that she was "blacked-out intoxicated" to the point that she didn't know what was going on. By law (seriously) if a girl (or a man to be 100% accurate) consumes ANY alcohol, they may fall under this date-rape law. Meaning that even after 2 or 3 beers, when she's just feeling good and makes a bad decision, she is still unable to consent to sex.

Being in the military, we get briefed on this WAY too often. Because it always re-appears. Some wife of a Marine who is deployed to Afghanistan gets lonely and goes off to a local bar to find some "company." She finds another local Marine, lies about her marital status, and fucks him. Now, all is well, until her husbands buddy hears this other marine bragging about fucking her at work. He tells her husband, all hell breaks lose, and in a panic, she claims rape. AND SHE GETS AWAY WITH IT. The poor bastard looking for strange pussy gets demoted and possibly worse, while the poor "victim" wife, gets a great sob story to tell her husband in Afghanistan, all so that she doesn't have to tell him the TRUTH.

This scenario seriously happens more often than a decent person would hope to think. I'm not saying that real rapes don't happen too, just saying that this particular scenario happens all the time.

The point is that the law doesn't just protect victims, it sometimes creates them out of innocent people. And sometimes guilty people (at least in a moral sense) get away with shit, by hiding behind these insane laws.

But my real original point was simply that there is a duality in our legal system. There are many other examples (Cory pointed out one with contract laws) but drunk driving was already being talked about, so I pointed that out.
You can't say, that after only a couple beers, a woman can't concent to sex, therefore any man who sleeps with her ( even when she says yes!) is raping her; While at the same time saying that any wasted bastard who gets behind the wheel of a car, is a criminal. It doesn't make any sense.

You also highlighted another point, our society seems to be fixated on what they perceive to be victims. We make laws based on emotion and passion, not on logic. The law will bend to one side of the ridiculous spectrum and then to the other, based on which side is perceived to be victimized. The girl was penetrated, so shes the victim. The drunk driver COULD HAVE killed someone, therefore society is the victim and he is the criminal. This is silly.

you brought up the point about violence at the hands of a drunk. Ok, but what is the crime? is it being drunk, or is it assault? Assault is the crime, not drinking, so they are arrested for THAT reason.
See, I don't believe that a drunk driver should be acquitted of running into a mini-van and killing a family, just because he was drunk; just the same as I don't believe a female who has had a couple drinks can claim to be rapped (if she in fact consented at the time)
I ALSO don't believe that someone who is "legally drunk" should be arrested or fined for driving, if they caused no harm or damage. A guy who drank 3 beers then drove home, in perfect control of his vehicle, but hit a DUI checkpoint and blew .01 over the limit, shouldn't be fined thousands of dollars and have a black mark on his record. No crime was committed.

I think the first point was simply that a crime has to take place. Sober drivers kill people just as much as drunk drivers. But you get a 100 dollar fine for texting and driving, while a DUI charge can ruin you life. this is un-proportionate and unfair. It really all boils down to money and public perception.What "they" can get away with by stealing and harassing us, without anyone making a big deal about it.

I seriously think people are fools if they honestly believe that things like DUI Laws, the War on Drugs, or even seat belt laws, make us any safer as a society. It's just harassment from big brother, in the ruse of "public safety" so that people accept it, instead of use their logic and resist it. The end result is money after all, that should usually be your first sign that something is wrong; when government profits from making new "criminal laws"

There has to be a victim for there to be a crime. " Habius-Corpus" literally translates to "show me the body" meaning that WAY back in the day, the judges would demand evidence of a crime, before trying somebody. They needed to see the murdered body (proving there was a victim) before they would even consider trying somebody.

Try using that defense in traffic court "your honor, ill pay my speeding ticket if you can show me one victim, one citizen that I hurt" Yeah, that went over well for me.

But it just goes to show how far-removed our society is from any kind of logical or reasonable thinking.....................I think I ranted enough

Good 'rant', I also agree with what you've said here. What is interesting though, among other things, is the part about how drunk the girl was. They have no way of knowing exactly how much she drank or what the blood alcohol content was, because by the time she has reported rape it is too late, most if not all of the alcohol has left her system. (That gives them a lot of power). It would become something like he said / she said, so I guess that is why by law if a girl consumes any amount of alcohol it falls under the date-rape law.
Going back to what was said earlier about signing a contract while drunk, I think that should also make the contract null and void in the same capacity that a drunk girl can claim to be raped and not in control of her actions, without anyone even giving it a second thought. Gotta be a 2-way street here.

Another interesting fact I stumbled across was that, as of 2011 all states enforce .08 as the legal limit. This is down from the legal limit being .15 just a few decades prior. Why did they change it all of a sudden? To me it seems like .15 would give plenty of room for someone to have a few drinks at the bar and be able to drive home without fear of getting a DUI.

Regarding DUI laws and the war on drugs etc, I agree 100%. Not to mention a "war" on drugs is an "un-winnable" war. Almost like the "war on terror." How can you fight against terror with terror? It just breeds more terrorists. Much in the same way, you can't win a war on drugs, you can arrest a whole cartel (not that they do) but another will just spring up and take it's place.

I honestly didn't even realize that. I'm sure you see why this can't hold up in modern times because of the many other ways evidence can be obtained. Also that seems like murderers would have free range to kill as they please as long as they were able to get rid of the bodies. I've heard of the saying "no body, no murder" but that doesn't always hold up today either.

Shit, I blew under the legal limit here in Texas and still got a DUI. I never understood how it was illegal if I blew under the legal limit. They did also catch me with a pipe though there was nothing in it. My shitty lawyer told me that they would assume I was drunk and high, thus putting me over the limit. So he had me plead guilty. I really fucking regret pleading guilty. Gotta say it was the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life. But because I didn't have enough money to pay the lawyer to fight the case I went with it.

I wish I would have known enough about the system to represent myself. That was my first experience with court and all that though, and I think people like me are the main ones they take advantage of. Now I've gotta pay over 5 thousand dollars for having 4 beers after work.

Post by: Variable on Jul 17, 2011, 01:23 AM
This thread suddenly got awesome.
Yeah, because you showed up!

I want to make a side note before I make a longer reply that most people wont read.

I actually DID try that defense in traffic court recently. Not because I thought it would work, but because I felt like fucking with the judge and seeing what his response would be.
So to recap. I got 3 speeding tickets in about a week and a half. About two weeks ago I went to court to try and ask for mercy  and maybe get the prices lowered or get one taken off my record. The judge was a dick and didn't even want to talk to me. So, I tried the "your honor, can you produce one victim? One person that I hurt or any property that I damaged? If not, I do not believe that I committed a crime."

I half expected him to tell me to fuck off. The other half of me expected a lecture on sociopolitical-philosophy and how, in my arrogance, I missed to point of safety for the greater good.

But no, he didn't do that. He just gave me an ominous scowl and asked if I could pay all 800 and something dollars that day. I said yes, and requested to be signed up for driving school, since California residents are allowed to get one ticket taken off their record per year, as long as they go to driving school.
The bastard cracked a very small grin and lowered his forehead so that when he looked at me, his eyes were already half rolled into his head, and he said "I'm not going to give you driving school" with a very demeaning tone that might as well have ended with "you fucking idiot, and I'm loving every minute of controlling your pathetic life. Because I'm a traffic court judge in Joshua Tree, and you are just scum."

Now, this story is relevant to me, because I don't think I committed a crime at all. And I SERIOUSLY believe that I was the victim of discrimination in two of the tickets, and possibly even in the courtroom (the locals HATE military types around here).
But not only did I get ticketed anyways, the bastard judge actually took away traffic school from me. I was half tempted to ask him "so if I go out and kill someone with my car, can I blame you for not letting me go to traffic school?" But I figured I pushed my luck far enough.

Had I called the court and paid my tickets a week before, they would have automatically set me up for driving school. But since I went to court, and spoke my mind, the judge decides to spite me and took that option away. The actions of the judge did not, in any way, contribute to public safety. They did however increase revenue for the city, and he got to feel big and tough because I was in his courtroom. This is an example of government punishing someone for expressing their opinion. Nixon's "enemies list" suddenly comes to mind.

The full story, on my levels, shows harassment on the part of the local sheriffs department and the CA State Police. The Judges actions were also harassing. But we allow this to happen. Because we need the streets to be safer. And this harassment makes the streets safer, so they say.

YOU FILTHY FUCKING CRIMINAL!

I don't even know where to start on the whole DUI thing for under the limit. Why even have a limit if you're not going to use it? (how ironically relevant to our nations debt ceiling)

They give you the DUI because they say you were still too imparted to drive (that used to be the difference between a DWI and DUI) But who makes the decision whether you really were impaired or not? The officer, and depending on how ambitious he is, he might want to bring in as much money for the city as possible. Get on the Mayors good side and stuff.
But then, who is checking to see if the people who blow OVER the legal limit actually ARE impaired? because we all know that some people can function perfectly normal with may more in their system than .08  . But no body cares.........why? They care enough to go out of their way and fuck you when you're under the limit, but not help you when you're over it. Hmmmmmmmmm, could money and public perception have something to do with this? I say yes.

Haha. Shit now I am a criminal according to my record and any close minded person that looks at it. The really fucked up part is the surcharges. Pretty much a hundred dollars a month for the next three years in order to have a valid drivers license. BUT if you got a DUI before 2008 they had a program that said if you hadn't made any payments on your surcharge in like a year, than you could have it reduced to only 20% of what you owe. Only 20% of about 2 thousand dollars. So if you paid them 200 bucks you would be good. Unfortunately if you have been making payments like you were supposed to you would not be eligible for the reduction. It's the same backwards thinking that yall were talking about earlier.

Good. Good riddance. I’m glad she’s dead. If I were at the funeral I’d tip her coffin over and kick the corpse. First of all her music was annoying, but much more importantly she had every chance in the world to get clean, to get off drugs, to save herself. She chose not too. People begged her. She ignored them. This wasn’t some poor girl with no options. She had every option. She had access to the best care in the world. This isn’t someone who made a mistake or two or twenty. She was an addict and she thought it was cute. She bragged about it in her biggest hit. If she didn’t give a shit about her life why should I? If I had a loved one with a drug problem I’d dig Amy up and tie her up on their doorstep like a Halloween decoration. Maybe it would scare them into getting clean. Or if nothing else I could just wait until Halloween to do it and kill two birds with one stone. My house would be the spookiest!

Harsh words, but I gotta say that I agree with him.

Well, not the "I'm glad she's dead" part, but mostly everything else.

i hated her music, i hated her, she got what was coming to her. it was just a matter of time. only thing pissing me off is people lumping her into the bullshit "27 club". that whole thing is entirely stupid but putting this drug addled brat who hasn't made a huge impact (face it, she had one big album five years ago and like 1 or 2 big hits) into the same company as janis joplin, jim morrison, kurt cobain, and jimmy hendrix is just undeserved. those people revolutionized music, made a lasting impact and will always be missed. in 2 or 3 years people will care even less about amy winehouse than they did when she was alive. tortured genius who met an untimely end? i think not. i'd say spoiled brat who lasted longer than i thought she would.

utter crap. the bigger star you are the more likely you will lose out to addiction, and amy had mental health issues on top of her addiction. her entire struggle was publicised 24/7. the fact is, there was no one around her who cared as much about her as they did about money. where was her manager and PR people when she was going on stage and embarrassing herself and doing interviews when she was completely off her face? who was protecting her? she clearly was in no condition to take care of herself. so far what i've heard is a defeatist attitude from everyone around her who have spoken out about her death. the quote where her mother said she had gotten used to her daughter being dead from a few years back is fucking tragic. on top of amy giving up on amy, everyone else gave up on her too. if my mum gave up on me i would sure as hell give up on myself.

whether you liked her music or not, she had an amazing voice. she was talented. this is beyond sad. i've been encountering a sentiment of 'glad that junkie's dead' a lot and i think people need to readdress how we view addicts in our society. we don't need this type of shock jock crap surfacing around someone who was clearly ill and sadly didn't have the strength to beat her addiction.

amy isn't a lonesome shark. many people have died in the same circumstance and will continue to die and we can't just spit on their corpse and say, 'they got what was coming to them'.

utter crap. the bigger star you are the more likely you will lose out to addiction

I don't buy that for a single second. There are multitudes of stars that are infinitely bigger than the one-hit-wonder, Amy Winehouse; who never OD or get dragged into a downward-spiral of drug addiction.
I could start a list, I suppose, but it's so long and obvious that it's not even worth going after.

Now, I think I pretty much agree with everything else that you said. Regardless of if people suggested that she go to rehab or whatever, that doesn't mean that anyone really cared or actually tried to help her.

The other simple reality is that an addict wont get rel help until they actually want it. Am I wrong? Or didn't she actually go to rehab, multiple times? I seem to remember a lot of corny jokes about people saying "they told her to go to rehab and she said yes, yes, yes." But just because someone goes to rehab, doesn't mean they got help ( anyone every heard of Scott Weiland? ) But see, Scott mannaged to stay cool while he was addicted, so people aren't blogging about how they hope he dies.

Blixa, my dear, A LOT of people just don't understand what true addiction is. They don't understand that the brain of an addict is literally wired different than the brain of a non-addict ( in the most literal scientific way ). To an addict, getting their drug is not a choice, it becomes a survival instinct just like food and water. Your brain thinks that you HAVE to have it. Its not a choice at that point. So it takes a lot more than a quick pat on the back and "hey you, why don't you go to rehab?" to fix a problem like serious drug addiction.

My point is that there is no need getting mad at people who don't understand these things. Because they don't know, what they don't know. Does that makes sense? I don't want to call them ignorant because I like a lot of them, but it is what it is.

Also, I automatically tune anyone out that gets happy about someones death. It's a human being, that died. But people get caught up in the hype and righteousness of it all, and lose sight that one of their brothers or sisters just died.

An addict's brain is hardwired differently and it is extremely easy to write them off when you don't understand it. I don't want to call these people ignorant, either but unless you're in that situation yourself it is very difficult to understand.

The hardest part is admitting you have a problem without being in denial and it seems as if maybe Amy never got over that hump. You can only help yourself when you admit you need help. Just because someone has the means and resources to go to rehab doesn't necessarily mean they'll get proper treatment or take the program seriously enough to keep up the treatment. And you sure as hell can't drag them there against their will because it goes back to the whole admitting you have a problem. Rehab only gets addicts on the right track--living an every day life is all up to them after that, and for a lot of addicts that can be frightening.

Of course, having your own mother admit to having lost hope years ago does not help either, but being in that position myself I can understand why she would lose hope. Addiction is a horrible disease that affects a lot of people. I'm sympathetic to both sides.

One caveat to that whole thing that neither of us mentioned.

MANY addicts completely acknowledge their "problem" but just don't care. Or they like it. Maybe they even realize they are addicted, but don't see it as a problem.

Our society (and I think I can pretty much speak globally here; in general terms) ridiculous. We see addicts as criminals and degenerates instead of sick people. It's really disturbing. I think the reason that most people think like this, is because they were TOLD to think like that. Not because they really ever sat down and tried to understand it, then came up with that conclusion. Probably the same type of non-thinking that led people to believe that black people were not human, women were of inferior to men, and gays shouldn't be able to legally marry.

i think having your struggle with addiction played out constantly in the media is a lot worse than suffering and dealing with addiction in private. in my personal opinion, amy winehouse was a person who was slowly descending into an abyss that she was not going to surface from, but her death was still a shock to me. i just...cannot stand the ignorance of some people in regards to her death. they make crude jokes about it and say she got what she deserved. i cannot come to terms with that. drug addiction is a big problem in our society and this very cold attitude that some people have towards addicts helps no one.

these are the same people who can have sympathy for a person who bets their house at the pokies and loses everything but not for a person who had another form of addiction and lost their life.

Ten Years After Decriminalization, Drug Abuse Down by Half in Portugal

July 7, 2011 by Trevor Lyman

Drug warriors often contend that drug use would skyrocket if we were to legalize or decriminalize drugs in the United States. Fortunately, we have a real-world example of the actual effects of ending the violent, expensive War on Drugs and replacing it with a system of treatment for problem users and addicts.

Ten years ago, Portugal decriminalized all drugs. One decade after this unprecedented experiment, drug abuse is down by half:

    Health experts in Portugal said Friday that Portugal’s decision 10 years ago to decriminalise drug use and treat addicts rather than punishing them is an experiment that has worked.

    “There is no doubt that the phenomenon of addiction is in decline in Portugal,” said Joao Goulao, President of the Institute of Drugs and Drugs Addiction, a press conference to mark the 10th anniversary of the law.

    The number of addicts considered “problematic” — those who repeatedly use “hard” drugs and intravenous users — had fallen by half since the early 1990s, when the figure was estimated at around 100,000 people, Goulao said.

    Other factors had also played their part however, Goulao, a medical doctor added.

    “This development can not only be attributed to decriminalisation but to a confluence of treatment and risk reduction policies.”

Many of these innovative treatment procedures would not have emerged if addicts had continued to be arrested and locked up rather than treated by medical experts and psychologists. Currently 40,000 people in Portugal are being treated for drug abuse. This is a far cheaper, far more humane way to tackle the problem. Rather than locking up 100,000 criminals, the Portuguese are working to cure 40,000 patients and fine-tuning a whole new canon of drug treatment knowledge at the same time.

None of this is possible when waging a war.

uh, thank you sir, for posting this (without a link you d-bag). Don't worry, I googled the link for myself and shared it with others.

This is very cool though. I mean, I'm sure it will get spun 6000 ways; but still, it's good that this kind of stuff is finally hitting the press in a real and not hypothetical form.

I recently wrote a paper on why all drugs should be decriminalized (highest grade in the class for the entire semester btw ;) ) But the hardest part of writing a paper like that is convincing the reader that decriminalizing drugs would actually lower drug use. Because the only real argument for that lies in theory and logic, not the scientific method. But this, is at least a start. Thanks again man.

dont get me wrong, but that article is twisted. drugs arent legal here in portugal, the use of it, is (however if you get caught you need to identify yourself and if you have a quantity above 10 times the average daily you are considered a drug dealer and get arrested, also if you get caught with less than that amount, for like 3 times, cops identify you and you need to go to a drug addiction session)
.
If you ask me, this model is a big lie, you dont legalize drugs, decriminalize its use, drug traffic still exists and pretend everything is ok, hiding the ugly truth.

to be honest i dont see much of a difference in terms on demand for drugs. but it has its good points as not filling prisons will addicts and less police focus on those. but the ugly truth of traffic exists.
now in the city where i live, in the past few months, there has been a major controversy over the so called legal drugs, which are sold in stores. which look likes herbs, but its full of chemicals, which are dangerous as hell. the thing is, if they include one chemical in the "black list of substances" which are considered drugs, the laboratories will just make a variation of it, which legally isnt the same as the banned one and its a spiral with no end. a complete waste of time for everyone.
im full support of drugs being sold in stores (obviously not to persons with mental illness or under 18), that would target the drug traffic (it will always exists, as still exist with tobacco, but it would be severe affected), the state would earn more money from taxes from the business of drugs and the consumer will know they are buying quality drugs, not mixed with other shit as they do today.
its a social, conservative and fear of  what would happen and seriously i dont think it will happen in our time, maybe in 100 years.
just because tobacco and alcohol is legal, not everyone is drunk and smoking 24/7. but this so called, developed society is afraid of changes.

The crazy part of this is,JVittitow (Jordan Vittitow) is my neighbor (4 houses down from me) and he had been talking about how Mikey was coming to town (my little town of Portland) and that they were going to shoot some pictures while he was here. He wrote a note on FB about this:

"This has been super tough for me to deal with over the past couple days...A couple of the pictures I took have been used on various news sites, websites, and .com boards...It is just super surreal for me at this point...I've posted on Mikey's FB page, but have yet to post anything on mine...It's been surprisingly rough...Such a great guy and I'm so sorry to see him leave so soon...

You guys may, or may not remember him from a little band called Weezer...He was the bass player on their "Green" album...That album proved to be one of the bands highest selling records ever...so much so that the record companies couldn't even make "gold" plaques for them...it went platinum that fast...

Anyway, this is a brief overview of the time that I spent with Mikey...

So, pretty much about this exact time last week, Mikey was on a plane headed south towards my place just a little north of Nashville...That afternoon when he got in, we met up for dinner and to hang out together, catch up, etc...It was a great night, full of alot o......f great stories and tons of laughs...

On Monday, we spent the entire day together taking pictures and hanging out...The pic I've attached, is one of many that I took during our time together...It was funny, we were driving around looking for cool places to shoot and we drive over this big bridge, with a river flowing under it...He looks out the passenger side window and says "Hey, let's go down there!" I'm like, "uhh, ok."

I pull off and find a place to park and grab my photo gear and we head off thrashing through the woods towards the river below...It was like walking through a jungle getting down there...It was very hot that day, super humid and muddy...but it was worth it...It was pretty funny as we're walking down to the river, he grabs a stick that is basically the size of a 2x4...I give him a "What's that for?" look and he simply replies, "Just in case I see a snake...I hate snakes." and then smiles at me...

We got some cool photos and had fun hanging out by the river that afternoon...The shot of him on the Weezer.com page was taken down there as well...That was actually his favorite one of the day...

Unfortunately, some PR and promo related stuff promopted him to have to leave several days before he had originally planned too...He jumped on a plane Tuesday afternoon for Chicago...

Monday night was the last time I saw him...As he got into his car to leave my house, he looks at me and says "So, we've got a plan for Tuesday, right?" I remember looking at him and said "Of course we do." I gave him a little wink and off he went...

Mikey was a rare, unique and gifted individual...I'm so glad that I was able to call him a friend and I'll certainly miss not having him in this world...

Anyway, here's some photo's...I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did creating it...It's crazy how much I miss this guy right now..."

Title: Re: RIP
Post by: devilinside on Dec 15, 2012, 03:19 AM

My big question: Why children? I don't understand that. I just don't. I'm heartbroken.

They're considered "soft" targets. A large group of defenseless people,in this case,innocent children,that you can take out in a faster burst. Sadly,these poor children were targeted because they were associated with the crazy fucks mother. And it pisses me off even more that he took his life afterwards,cause boy I'd love to beat the shit out him.

Alas,no matter what the gun laws are/will become,people will alway's find a way to posses them...just like illegal drugs. So it doesn't really matter because they will always be floating around regardless of laws. And it's a shame that because you have people that are nuts and shoot up schools,that the people that are responsible with guns,like myself,get punished. But if it comes between owning a firearm and the sheer HOPE of this bullshit ending,then I would gladly give mine up. But I know in the end this will never stop.

Yeah there would be a black market that would pop up but at least it would be harder to get the weapons and if people were found with them they could be prosecuted there's a place for guns for people like you that are respnsible but there needs to be safeguards for others ,In NZ you can't have automatic guns only rifles and pistols and to get your gun licence you have to be sponsored by other people who have their licences and you also have to renew after a while and to pass you have to get statements of character from people you know (can't be family members) to say you are responsible with guns. It just seems so silly that you can build up a whole arsenal like the Batman guy did and it's all completely legal,I know the U.S has a bigger population so there's more of a chance of it happening but they also a have a real gun culture that makes it worse in NZ our cops don't even have guns and only some carry tazers and we have very little gun crime, as far as mass shootings go I think there's only been one like 30 years ago

Do you understand how many unregistered guns there are in the US? Selling them in a store or not,they will still circulate just like they do now. There is no reason to be a smart ass about it,and logic would tell you there will always be a way to get a gun.

I agree that there should be a huge process you should have to go through to bear arms. Hell,even a psych analysis would be fine with me,then again someone could possibly snap @ any time and go rogue. I've gone into a huge schpeal over why I posses a gun,so I wont go into it again. And I understand people kill people everyday,but damn,not children...5/6 year olds at that. This shit has put me in a serious depression all day. And what about the dude in China stabbing 22 children on their way to school?
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: DeftonesNZ on Dec 15, 2012, 04:21 AM
Yeah I'm not all anti-gun there are legitimate reasons to have guns, I think people should be able to have guns aslong as they go through a process to make sure they are suitable there will be some people who snap but I think the psych analysis is a great idea,there's not just one fix that will stop everything but it may catch alot people with those violent tendencies before they get guns I think they should also have to be reassessed after a certain period of time rather than a one off thing because people can change dramatically over time whether it's just a slow degrade of their morals or even some one off event that changes their personality for the worse stuff like head injuries that make people extremely temperamental and violent.

This thing upset me alot aswell but it makes me appreciate how safe NZ is compared to other parts of the world I think I'm extremely lucky to live here I used to think it was shit because it was so small but now I can't honestly think of another place i'd like to live.

But yeah nutjobs are everywhere. And I'm definitely all for a psych evaluation for getting a gun. should be like driving a car - written test and accuracy test on top of the psych eval.

Banning guns is like banning cars because of drink-drivers. What they need to do is spot signs of mental illness sooner and do something about it rather than throwing pills at everyone or ignoring it. There seem to be a lotta psychos and sociopaths on the increase in America, and banning guns doesnt do much, it'll just manifest in another way. No point treating the symptoms rather than the disease. They just need to be more thorough. The majority of gun owners are responsible, sane ppl though.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: deftones86 on Dec 15, 2012, 01:27 PM
They want your guns. Just ask your self who will have guns if they are outlawed. Criminals. And guns are banned in Mexico look how that's working out. im all for saving the children but I like to think Americas biggest deterrent against our government and others is we can arm every person from 18 to 90 and still have guns left. Guns will never go away in America and that's just how it is. Try that shit in Texas ain't happenin. You can legally own hand grenades and .50 cal machine guns. 
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: DeftonesNZ on Dec 15, 2012, 01:42 PM
It's sad that it has got to that point where in America you need a gun to feel safe people shouldn't have to feel that unsafe in their own country and homes it all just spirals out of control after a while ,cops get guns so the criminals get guns too then citizens get guns so they can defend themselves from the criminals.Probably doesn't help that America has lots of foreign enemies aswell I guess that creates a paranoia among people that they could be attacked at any time but the truth is their right the past shows it attacks are possible.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: chick de la lynch on Dec 15, 2012, 10:01 PM
I don't think anyone in this thread is saying to BAN guns. We just need a less relaxed system to get a gun--background check, psych evaluations, etc. There are plenty of people who own guns who are not psychopaths and upstanding citizens. I don't think they should be punished for a few rotten eggs in the bunch and you know, Bill of Rights.

I personally don't like guns. Never have, never will. I do understand there are people who like having a gun around them for protection or they enjoy hunting. As long as there is still a 2nd Amendment, U.S citizens will still have the right to bear arms. I just want to make sure the people who own the guns won't snap and do something like this and commit mass murder on a random group of people. Just because the 2nd Amendment exists doesn't mean getting a gun should be a lax process.

I think accessing mental health care should also be easier than accessing a gun. I think that's just common fucking sense right there.

Guns exist, bombs exist, grenades exist, weaapons will exist no matter what. We as humans deserve the right to protect ourselves.

This could have been stopped by having the teachers protected.

Sorry but your logic is just fundamentally fucked ,more guns to solve the problem? You have to be kidding It doesn't solve the issue of why their mental issues weren't spotted earlier or how they managed to amass the guns so easily,People like you is why any significant change will never happen in America the rest of the world is baffled to how this could keep happening so often and you do nothing about it.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: downtownpony on Dec 16, 2012, 06:00 AM
I don't see how his logic is fucked.
They would have shot the guy before he killed as many people. Is the idea of someone dying and not being able to continually kill people confusing to you?
It is interesting to note that a lot of these shootings have been happening in areas that do have more gun control laws than usual.

It's fucked because it doesn't treat the cause,The psychos shouldn't be able to build up arsenals so easy The point is you shouldn't have to arm yourself you should trust your governments doing every they can to keep you safe and that means keeping dangerous weapons out of the wrong hands in the first place,The whole land of the free thing is an illusion when you can't even feel safe and have to  arm yourself in your own home or workplace.

Post by: downtownpony on Dec 16, 2012, 06:36 AM
I guess you  should be able to trust your government. But I think history has shown us that the government or ruling class rarely has the people's best interest at heart.
To give the gov the sole right to have arms puts them in a position of power that leaves us people completely helpless to what they may want to impose.

I do think that you shouldn't be able to own a firearm if you are on certain types of medications.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: DeftonesNZ on Dec 16, 2012, 06:54 AM
I'm not completely against owning fire arms I just think there should be better processes in place to obtain them considering the damage that can be caused with them,I'm just sick of these sorts of mass shootings they seem to be getting more common lately
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: bright lights, big city on Dec 16, 2012, 07:20 AM
So now we should be arming the teachers? And send them to gun ranges while they're student teaching (assuming we want them to be accurate)? And where do store these guns in each classroom? Locked away obviously. But hey if there's a gunman coming down the hallway to my room who's to say I won't choke and fuck up the combination and take too long to open it?

Shouldn't the goal be to have no casualties, instead of say, only 5 or 10?
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: downtownpony on Dec 16, 2012, 10:18 PM
Of course that should be the goal. Unfortunately we don't live in a perfect world filled with sane people. So these things are always going to happen and it would be wise to be prepared just in case. Best to have it and not need it than the other way around.
It wasn't too long ago that schools used to have rifle teams and similar gun training classes that taught young people the proper use and responsibility that comes with owning and operating a firearm. Now, I think there is a lot of people who view guns the same way anti/pro-weed people view Marijuana. They can't really step back and view it from a non-biased stand point because the extremes of both sides of gun control are the only ones being represented in the media.

I will admit that each teacher having a gun in their classroom does sound a bit extreme. Maybe a few ex-cop or military stationed at schools with a fire arm would be the better answer. They could be there for protection and educational purposes.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: Jerry_Curls on Dec 16, 2012, 11:13 PM
It's just odd to me that in all these cases, witness reports always first state there are more than one gunman. Yet, always only one guy is caught/suicided. If atleast one teacher had a gun, they could have shot back at the shooter. When these schools have these "drills" to prepare for school shootings (ughh) they are told to be complacent and not attack...why the fuck not? Why let a shooter have their way with non-protected hostages? Why not tackle them down and gang up? I'm in no way saying it's an easy thing to do, but why teach adults/students subservient action? All of this is the same song and dance..drills just happened not too long ago at the school and this drill so happened to go "live". There were reports from the kids saying they thought it was a drill at first.

The shooting at the mall in Oregon just had a drill ("The sheriff said the gunman was also hindered in his efforts to kill more people by a fast police response, quick thinking from shoppers and a recently-rehearsed mall lockdown" http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2246748/Jacob-Tyler-Roberts-Gunman-Oregon-mall-shooting-identified.html#ixzz2Ermg6bdf (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2246748/Jacob-Tyler-Roberts-Gunman-Oregon-mall-shooting-identified.html#ixzz2Ermg6bdf)


I don't know where I'm going with this, I'm just going on tangents...but I'll just stop now. People who are set on thinking guns are bad will never change their mind and believe Obama will change our world. He hasn't. All the government wants is for us to be un-armed and ready to lick the boots of the men in uniform while they walk down our streets.

p.s. R.I.P. to all the victims :-(
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: bright lights, big city on Dec 16, 2012, 11:36 PM
What does wanting Obama to change the world have anything to do with guns and what just happened? He's done zilch with guns in the last 4 years. Blame it on the fact that's it's just not very well-regulated and that psychos that want to get some firearms can do it pretty easily with our current system.

Ya Tony was great though, I remember I was too young when the sopranos first came out, but I would always turn it on and wait for a fuck scene.

It was probably one of the funniest shows too and the violence was hysterical. who murders people more creative and funny then latins? even in the classic Roman tradition.

He graced the covers of all the teen mags I used to read, he was in all those 90's teen films that I used to watch. He was the heartthrob of my generation. It feels like a classmate of mine died. It's just an eerie feeling. He was so young, too.

Stef smokes weed frequently and Chino and the rest of the bunch only occasionally. But that won't kill them. They laid down all the hard stuff as they grew older.

But I have to disagree with "ruining their awesome life". Sometimes, despite all the fame and success, life can be not so awesome at times for a musician and that's why they turn to drugs. I think it can be hard to comprehend as an outsider and fan, but there's always more going on behind the scenes of a musicians life
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: DeftonesNZ on Dec 09, 2014, 02:22 PM
Yeah I've heard musicians say they needed the drugs to cope with the change of pace, they would go from touring all over the world to being back home or in studio at a much slower pace and it fucked with their heads but the drugs allowed them to get that fix that touring and partying usually provided. A musicians life is definitely not great especially if you're younger and new to it all, look at Chino he missed a shit ton of his kids childhoods and ended up divorced because he was young and ended getting consumed by the party lifestyle, luckily he survived the drug use and managed to keep a relationship with his kids he could have easily overdosed or lost or ties with his kids.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: black coffee on Dec 09, 2014, 03:10 PM
but Chino is not really the ideal example for the point you made there.
He had tons of fun with his band over the years, probably banged a lot of groupies, toured all the continents of the earth and made some nice money as well. And even considering the downsides of all that, the divorce, not seeing his kids for long episodes, its the life he chose and its a really good one. Not everyone does drugs like cocaine or weed to cope with something, for some its just fun to blast themselves away, and I imagine it would be a lof of fun after performing in front of an audience.

Taking drugs to cope with a change of pace is a bullshit excuse, unless you're mentally unstable. Like Black Coffee says, they do drugs to get fucked up.

but Chino is not really the ideal example for the point you made there.

Yeah because as I said he was lucky, Chino has said many times during the years he should have died when he was young and feels luck is was on his side, he said he put his life at risk too much because he felt he had to experience it all and that caused him to over indulge. He's alluded to how he got addicted to drugs as-well saying it starts out as a party thing but then follows you.

Yeah you're right I don't think it's a good excuse but it happens a lot a musicians life isn't the best for mental stability, imagine your touring for a year doing a show and partying every night and then you go home and there's nothing happening that's got to fuck with your head, you've been riding this big wave of euphoria and then all the sudden you're expected to slot back into domestic life, I don't approve of it but I can at least see why it happens.

Post by: black coffee on Dec 10, 2014, 01:15 PM
I understand this is your favorite band and you take what they say at face value, but I strongly doubt it that Chino "should have died". Don't forget these guys are sometimes exaggerating in interviews, Chino especially. I remember an interview in which he said the band will be over if one of them leaves quits or dies. Now they're working on album #3 without Chi. These are normal people and Chino tends to get a little dramatic, I wouldn't put too much in it.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: DeftonesNZ on Dec 10, 2014, 02:02 PM
Not the case you're just assuming things about me, I used judgement just like anyone does this was a more recent interview not back in the days when Chino would just talk shit and he wasn't bragging about getting fucked up on  drugs and having threesomes he basically said his mentality was that he was young and should be experiencing everything possible to get the most out of it but he ended up living a very dangerous lifestyle that could have killed him.

I'm surprised you find it hard to believe, over indulgence a pretty common psychology response to mass exposure, even I knew young people who turned 18 moved out of home and developed unhealthy addictions to drugs and alcohol when it became available to them so with those things considered I'm inclined to believe he could of done the same and it's already pretty widely known he did heroin and cocaine now add in the other drugs/alcohol and it's easy to see how he could of died.
Title: Re: RIP
Post by: black coffee on Dec 10, 2014, 02:27 PM
well if someone uses the nickname DeftonesNZ on a deftones forum, I'd say its not completely out of the blue to assume its their favorite band ;)
But yes you say it yourself. People move out from their parents place into their own apartment or a dorm room and do all the things they couldn't before. Doesn't mean anyone gets addictions and dies from them.

anyways I know its none of my business, but how old are you? I'm kinda curious.

Yeah they are my favourite band but I listen to lots of music, I get what you meant but I don't really get into the band member fan boy thing I just like the music I fully realise Chino can be a dick I just didn't think he was on that occasion, I'm 21 years old so it's kind of a thing I'm noticing now a lot of the people I know moved out and experimented a bit and are fine but I've seen there are some who have a problem now.

What do you mean by that remark?
I am almost sure that you are talking about hard drugs as heroin and cocaine, unless if you're  one lazy dick, delusional, self-centered, self moronic ape as DeftonesNZ
Aren't  you implying Neuroscientists, Shamans etc. For example, Dr. Michele Ross is a former drug researcher for the National Institute on Drug Abuse, turned medical marijuana and psychedelics advocate. Dr. Ross says she sought out non-neurotoxic, nonaddictive DMT to help her heal from trauma. Aren't  you implying that she is delusional for this statement,right? I am not messing around. Trolling... Seriously bro...just to clear things up.

Watched a show the other day on cluster headaches. Shit is absolutely brutal. A very small amount of people get them but the ones that do usually end up blowing their brains out due to the pain and suffering. Some of the patients were using LSD and Mushrooms to heal. And the results were incredible. Cool stuff. I always knew some hallucinogens have some medicinal value. None of them used drugs in the past and really only resorted to this as a last resort. But they were almost completely healed. The human brain is a crazy thing.

They'll probably do that usual aloof Deftones thing where they make a statement like four days from now.

Perhaps members of Deftones sent their regards and well wishes privately to the Linkin Park and Chester's family and didn't feel the need to post it on social media!

I think there is nothing worse than someone posting.... look....I knew the dead guy.  If it truly means something to Deftones to make a statement of condolences they should do it.  I recently had a very close friend pass away and the only part worse than him being gone is the constant social media posts where people share the one photo they ever had with him and discuss how much it's impacted THEM.  Makes me fucking pissed.  Just my side.

RATM, SOAD, Muse, Korn, Slipknot, Taproot, Limp Bizkit, In Flames...

It just would be weird to not see Deftones in the bunch. They made Linkin Park, even if it's by "accident". The connection between the two is just too obvious.

This is Chester in 1997. If I said it was Chino in 1995, I would be close enough
