Burmese govt vows action against drug traffickers

Burma’s government has pledged to take strong action against drug producers and traffickers across the country.

The 'plug in' seems to have been upgraded.

At a glance it seems like this version has features that were absent from the first.

Johnny Htoo working with KNU

While perusing the news from home at I noticed in the article about a possible summit between armed groups that leading the talks was

POPE DIES! Beatification awaits approval of new Pope.

Canonization is probably not far off for Hey Seuss certainly the most saintly of popes in the past few centuries.

A day at the clinic

Much like every other time i go to the clinic, days overdue for my appointment and they have been after me for tests too but it is a clear winter's day as i leave for the first bus at 9am. Change buses and two hours later i walk up the long hill to the hospital when the plan forms in my head thinks "they want me to have a blood test, a chest x-ray and an ECG. Maybe i could go for an x-ray and the ECG then it might be too late for the blood test before going to the doctor".

A weekend without metro

I picked up 65mg on Saturday morning, missed 100mg that night, missed all day and night on Sunday even tho i was looking at 100 mg. How do i do it?

Plenty of pot is a good start. I had been eating 2g at a time and was terribly high all the time but i think the sleep is what did it. Eating pot makes a really good general tonic if you don't have to be too sharp. Not so hot on the stomach but i'm sure creative cooking would fix that. For someone who is making an effort to reduce an opiate intake here is an ideal adjunct.

On arrival at the lake side "guet houe" in MaeHongSon perhaps the largest display on the wall concerned the most important event on their Bhuddist calendar, more important it seems than the various hill tribes in the area which are the major drawcard for visitors. The display points out that the Buddhists or the institutional manifestations of them are divided into two streams as are the people themselves and these are the only streams in Thai society at least to the Thai and theTaiYai, to the disadvantage of all the other ethnicities in the country.

A long weekend

It's 9 as i get up to answer the door and it's MT apologizing profusely for not sending me a txt, first warning. She shrinks from my annoyance with her, second warning. I'm getting the feeling i'm being played as i apologise and she starts to get a bit weepy. I apologise and offer to make a cup of hot chocolate and then, "i just wanted to see if i could get a bud until Monday?", strike three. I sit down and have a drink and a few cones and listen to MT as she talks about her need for anti- depressants.

Possible logic flaw, help needed.

So, I have this job okay, it's not a nice job. But this job earns me enough money to be able to buy the quantity of illegal drugs that I need in order to be able to cope with my job.

Now, it feels like there's a problem with that sentence, and yet it's self-contained and all encompassing, so maybe it's okay. Maybe it's a zen haiku? Maybe I am needlessly worrying?

Your data

It's a question that pretty much everyone I have spoken to about this site has raised.

"Why would I put my usage history on this site? Aren't I just helping the police?"

To start, I'd like to point out that I have been entering my usage data on this site's predecessor since 2006 and have never been raided or experienced anything to indicate that publishing such data was detrimental. And that data was completely publicly available - anyone who desired to could see that I had used heroin just ten minutes before, and how much I had spent.

silk road

so saw this shit about this encoded website called silk road where u can apparently purchase your pick of illicit substances.. tried to find it. not an easy find on google . but there was the original news article taht lead to it getting on tv. so u have to download this browser package called TOR which encodes all incoming and outgoing traffic... it got a bit complicated at that point. they use regular mail. the journalist who tried it got his delivery.. so has anyone tried it looked for it. why do i even care. can't take drugs at the moment anyway?

All beauty must die

I can think of no greater fear. No one concept or idea causes me more stress than this one. That one day I may no longer enjoy gear. To inject, and not enjoy. A horrible thought, but I guess it is not a universal law that I should always enjoy gear, is it? Why should I assume that although I may fall in and out of love, take up and discard various hobbies, why would gear remain a core enjoyed activity?

On the Death of a Friend

His death was something we both knew was coming and from where if not so clearly as to when. I knew of his diagnosis by mid 2009 and he had been told not to make any plans past Christmas but as it turned out Keir managed to live until late February 2012 when he passed away peacefully in hospital, a lovely room with family and good friends about. It was cancer in his thyroid that was treated with radiation therapy and surgery and in its early stages didn't seem noticeable to me except for the obvious effects of the surgery.
