Once a tank pulled out in front of my Dad and I while we were doing about 120kph down empty Beirut road (places to go while most people were still hunkered down in an early 1979 lull). As we recognized the tank for what it was appearing climbing an elevated-highway off-ramp, all of a sudden and from all the surrounding rooftops, a lot of soldiers/fighters hit the tank, along with the road and steel rails, all around with the big stuff. We just whizzed through without a scratch. Woah- that was awesome. Don't want to do it again though- it goes really badly just in dreams.
No challenge here. People do that all the time.
Why do people think it's smart to take drugs?:shrug:
Why do you assume people can think anything or judge anything well enough when under influence of drugs? Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

JamesR: "Why do people think it's smart to take drugs?"
I don't know- I've never thought it necessarily smart to have a beer or a bowl. Some say it isn't smart to talk to strangers. But we take little chances for all sorts of reasons- like living an interesting life, in other words just having a good time.
Well, I don't think it's smart and can't really recall a time when I did think it was "smart". (See further comments for reliability of the "recall" part here)
However, when you're young you have a tendency towards adventurousness and an underlying belief in your own immortality and invulnerability. So I took a lot of drugs, don't really know of any psychoactive drug I haven't taken.
I now attribute an estimated 30 point loss in my IQ to said drug ingestion, and I include alcohol in this mix. My short and long term memory sucks, sometimes I will know / remember something one day, not the next, but recall it again the following day. All along, I know that I know it, if ya' know what I mean...
I'm not even that old, (by my own standards at least, not even 50 yet), so I can't blame the loss of faculties solely on age. At least I can still pass for mid to late thirties physically, but that's not helping my intellect. I started off extremely intelligent by any of the suspect "objective" measures (IQ 160+, SAT's 1594/1600) so I had some room to maneuver, but... I fully intended to be able to follow the math on this site, and quickly realized I couldn't even do simple integrals and derivatives anymore, for example.
Drugs are bad! Carry on... :itold:

Native Americans considered all living beings as brothers and sisters that had much to teach including squirrels.
These small creatures taught them to work in harmony with the cycles of nature by conserving for the winter months during times when food was plentiful.
Squirrels remind us to set aside a portion of our most precious resources as an investment in the future.
Though food and money certainly fall into this category, they are only some of the ways our energy is manifested.
We can conserve this most valuable asset by being aware of the choices we make and choosing only those that nurture and sustain us.
This extends to the natural resources of our planet as well, using what we need wisely with the future in mind.
Squirrels accept life’s cycles, allowing them to face winters with the faith that spring will come again. Knowing that change is part of life, we can create a safe space, both spiritually and physically, that will support us in the present and sustain us in the future.
This means not filling our space with things, or thoughts, that don’t serve us. Without hoarding more than we need, we keep ourselves in the cyclical flow of life when we donate our unwanted items to someone who can use them best.
This allows for more abundance to enter our lives, because even squirrels know a life of abundance involves more than just survival.
Squirrels use their quick, nervous energy to enjoy life’s adventure.
They are great communicators, and by helping each other watch for danger, they do not allow worry to drain them...:m:
Instead, they allow their curious nature to lead the way, staying alert to opportunities and learning as they play.
Following the example set by our squirrel friends, we are reminded to enjoy the journey of life’s cycles as we plan and prepare for a wonderful future,
taking time to learn and play along the way....:m:
Yeah, Draq, what PieAreSquared said...
And don't forget, Skrat (my squirrel) is also a Kung-Fu master of the N'th degree! Kittie, beware!
Why do people think it's smart NOT to take drugs?
Yeah well my kitty is a total annihilation technique master of N + 1 degree Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
