The stupidest comment in the history of teh Intertubez.

| November 13, 2012 | 67 Comments

Presumably everyone is following the ridiculous thread about the Pot guy and the ears he was cutting off in Viet Nam.  His latest story is that it was a buddy of his doing it and he simply appropriated the story.  Whatever.  Just assinine.  But, NOT as asinine as this comment I found on the Facebook discussion on his Facebook page….

Jeri Rose I consider myself a Nam vet for having been abused for protesting against anyone going to that war. Everyone who was involved in dealing with that war was a veteran of it. I still cry when I think about it for all my friends who left the country for all those who died and for all those who came back and could not get over the PtSD.

Um, yeah, no.  Now, you could see it yourself, but the dirty hippie deleted the entire thread.  It was classic, but that comment above was my all time favorite. 

Now, as a guy who has been to 54 Grateful Dead shows, I really am agnostic on legalizing pot.  I really don’t care one way or another.  But, the crap about how pot helps your PTSD is a load of shite used to justify their actions, not the reverse.  In other words, they wanted pot legalized, and this was the bext means to raise support.  It’s not like this is the best treatment available, and the legalize pot thing grew out of it.

Nonetheless, I challenge you to make up your own ridiculous toutologies.  If she is a Viet Nam veteran for having opposed the wars, then I am a player/coach for the Patriots for having opposed vocally the vile and perfidious Giants in last years Super Bowl.  One of the best examples on my Facebook page thus far was from one of my Boys from Virginia Boys State who comments:

I cried when Sherlock Holmes died….I’M ROBERT DOWNEY JUNIOR!!!!

Sniper rhetorically posits:

I cried when John Holmes died. Does that make me a porn star?

I’ve seen Sniper in the shower.  He could almost do Lesbian pr0n.

Anyway, add your illogical syllogisms below….

    I am not George W. Bush – I therefore won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. I’m still waiting for my million dollars, though.

    I was recently in Kalifornia. I’m a brain dead democRAT!

  6. Hack Stone says:

    I remember way back when, probably about 1984, reading in Stars And Stripes about a guy running for office in Arizona. he claimed to be a Vietnam vet. The opponent’s wife was a bit suspiscious, did some research and discovered that the guy was bout 15 when the Vietnam war ended. When he was confronted, he claimed that growing up watching the Vietnam War on the news, made him a Vietnam veteran in spirit. I grew up watching Hogan’s Heroes, so I must be a WW II vet. Do I also qualify for a POW badge? As for that politician, I think that he was one of the subjects in Stolen Valor.

    @56

    My mom loved Black Sheep Squadron when I was a kid so I watched that. I guess that makes me a WW II Vet Fighter Pilot.

  8. Ex-PH2 says:

    I grew up watching Jackie Cooper on TV in his Navy series “Hennessey” and also watched the “Blue Angels”, so that makes me a Navy fighter/stunt pilot and doctor.

    And you’ve all seen my picture, so I can prove it’s true.

  9. OWB says:

    Been to Tuskeegee so I claim being a Red Tail pilot!

    Am, too. Can even spell P-51. No, I never took Eleanor up for a ride.

    I realize that I am going to probably poke the bear with this comment so let me just preface by saying, I’m not a pot head.

    Believe it or not, there is actually some research that supports the idea that marijuana may have some therapeutic benefit in PTSD. This first got a lot of buzz in legitimate medical circles a few years ago and I know I first heard about it when the Israelis published an animal study suggesting a link. Since then, there are a number of ongoing studies, many of which are suggesting that the cannabanoid receptors may be a potential treatment target in the future.

    That having been said, unless you’ve blown through every reasonable legal therapy, the self medication argument doesn’t hold a lot of water with me and 99 times out of 100 its just an argument to excuse bad behavior or justify what is ultimately a long history of getting one’s puff on. Cannabanoid receptor agonists may ultimately help with PTSD but theres also a compelling link between weed and the onset of psychosis. Personally, I’d rather be jumpy than mumbling to myself and yelling about the CIA bugging my house.

  11. Ex-PH2 says:

    But, Squid, what’s wrong with mumbling to myself and yelling about the CIA bugging my house?

  12. Anonymous says:

    Well Ex-PH2, its only a delusion if its not true. :)

  13. Eric says:

    @62: Hey, just because you are paranoid, doesn’t mean they aren’t after you.

    Squid, the bigger issue with it is that what percentage of people are “actually” getting some beneficial treatment from the marijuana vs how many are using whatever they can think of as an “excuse” to use it. The whole “well when I take it, I feel better” argument is bogus because its marijuana, you are gonna feel less pain, along with getting the munchies. (Think of the South Park Episode about medical marijuana…)

    At the end of the day, who wants to look like Tommy Chong when they are in their 60s? (Though he’s looked that way since he was in his 30s I think).

    Oh yeah, to continue the theme of this thread: I watch Animal Planet, therefore I have a PhD in Veterinary Science.
