Seriously, is there anybody that doesn't like a fireman? I mean, sure, everybody loves to hate on the cops—deserved or not—but nobody hates on firemen or gets pissed that their house is no longer burning. Also, probably because they do badass shit like this.

What? You act like you've never had your soul escape through your eyeball and go on a ravenous rampage, leaving your lifeless husk of a body in the care of two passing deer. We call that Tuesday around these parts.

Weed Is on the Menu at Chic LA Eatery

Cooking with weed is so much more than just green butter. Sweet, sweet green butter *droooooool*. Herb can actually be used in much the same way as other herbs because, duh, it is one.

"Honestly, I don't even smoke pot. I just come here to find cool shit. "

LoL, man, finally.

So many people who don't smoke pot come in here and go "WTF is this shit? I don't understand. What does this have to do with anything? Why is this here?"

...which is exactly how you could describe most conversations/good times associated with smoking pot. Totally irrelevant cool stuff. Its got fuck-all to do with anything specific, but its just cool.

Nxtfari down there understands completely. He (she?) doesn't need to be into the ganja to get the idea of enjoying interesting things. That's all it is. People say "How does any of this have anything to do with technology?"

Well, what about the part where all of these things are content that we are only able to consume because of technology? Items or events that where filmed or documented in some way; captured on camera, uploaded to a server and then dispersed to we chuckleheads out surfing upon the Internets. We are endlessly discussing the individual pieces of hardware and software that make up this system we have: 'Gadgets' which is ostensibly what Giz stands for.

Great, but the fucking reason we get excited about gadgets isn't really in and of the gadgets themselves; fascinating as they may be. What we are excited about when it comes to a new gadget is what we anticipate doing with that gadget. Take the new ipad, Lord Grand Pooh-Bah of all gadgets, we love it because of all the fucking sweet content that we may consume via it's usage.

This in mind; what exactly is wrong with Gizmodo, during off-hours, posting some fucking sweet content for us to consume via our beloved gadget of preference?

NOTHING! Nothing is wrong with that I say! The vast majority of the content posted to this channel has been 100% unrelated to marijuana and that's exactly how it should be. There are a few cannabis-related public service announcements thrown in there for people who give a shit. For them and everyone else there are also cool things to look at.
