    Growing Pot

    Take it easy there kingpin. I'm sure your method works just fine. Fandandy isn't trying to corner the biggest market in the country. He's looking to try growing for a hobby. You're telling a guy that quit smoking because it became a little too much for him how to grow for maximum potency. Talk about My way will work just fine and cost considerably less while he figures out if it's something he actually wants to do.
  2. They have to give you a free month then. No question about it. Unless there's something in the contract that stipulates that, "in the event of a viral pandemic, we will not be responsible for refunding dues based on involuntary closure blah blah blah".... or some such buIIshit. If they do that then steal a bunch of towels for the remainder of membership then find a new gym.

    Growing Pot

    Depends on what you start with. Garbage in, garbage out. It's been a lot of years but I've had success doing just what I outlined above. It doesn't have to be a science project. Start with a good seed, add plenty of sunlight and water and you should be good to go as long as you keep the pests away. Doing that resulted in decent enough quality that a friend of mine, who grows for the clubs in NorCal, wanted to trade some of his indoor for some of mine.

    Growing Pot

    At one of the parties I threw in high school, a friend of mine rolled a joint on my front porch. When he finished, he brushed the stems and one seed into the planter box in front of the porch. Lo and behold, a few weeks later, my dad walked into my room holding a small plant and asked me what it was. He knew what it was and he knew I knew what it was. Point is, with zero care or attention, a seed brushed into a planter box sprouted and grew to about 6" before it got noticed and yanked. It isn't all that difficult to get pot to grow.

    Growing Pot

    You can buy a bag of weed and If there happens to be a seed in it, plant it, water it and wait. It may turn out to be female which will result in the plant budding (flowering) if you don't kill it somehow. It may also turn out to be male. In which case you'll plant it, water it and wait to find out you wasted your time. With an outdoor grow it might be too late to try again this year. I've never bought seeds but I have to believe that you're buying what "should be" female seeds. Which takes some guess work and risk out of the equation. They should also be from a specific strain which speaks to quality. Hence the price.

    Favorite Album - Led Zeppelin

    When it comes to makin' out, whenever possible, put on side 1 of Led Zeppelin IV.
  7. The LL gets a break too. Everybody who misses work or suffers a financial hardship because of government mandated shutdowns should get some sort of break in my opinion. And I'm a small government guy. I don't think they should be able to make people stay home from work but they did it so they need to take responsibility for the fallout.
  8. My only point was that if banks are going to give property owners a break during a crisis like this, it's only right for said property owners to pass that along to their tenants. I'm sure some will and others won't but if you aren't going to allow people to continue working, I think the breaks should be mandatory. My wife and I got laid off at the same time a few years back. We voluntarily decided to take some time off. That time lasted longer than either of us had anticipated. About a year and a half longer. We burned through pretty much all of our savings and took a loan from our 401K's to pay the bills. The initial time off was our choice so it was our responsibility. Why should you have to burn through your savings because the government told you to close your business and stay home for 2 months?
  9. That's my point. If the members are all still paying dues, the gym can afford to pay their employees for the hours they would normally be working. There's no excuse for continuing to collect dues and simultaneously letting people go.

    Favorite Country Music?

    He's been around for a while. Started out in a punk band in LA.
  11. In the GD, there were no jobs to be had. We had a booming economy with record low unemployment and the government told people they could not go to work anymore. Some people were deemed "essential" and allowed to keep going to work. Some people were allowed to work from home. A shitload of people were furloughed, laid off or let go outright because there was no work from home option available to them. You're comparing apples and orangutans.
  12. If you're still paying your dues to the gym then the gym needs to keep all employees on the payroll. And yes, you should get a free month or two since you can't use the facility.
