Okay, that does It: I demand that We mandate Universal Background Checks for Sharpie Purchase! This cannot go unanswered!

Lawd have mercy; if true, this would mark a new friggin' low for Asinus Stultus Absurda Ad Infinitum, that has become of Amerika. Just when I thought I've seen it all:

I bought a sharpie. Warning must be 18!!

Apparently alcohol, cigarettes, sudafed and spray paint isn't all that's age restricted in America. In order to buy these sharpies- used for ink on paper- I had to prove I was over 18 years of age. As if, what could anyone even do with that?

** Is there a nationwide pandemic of Teenage-Sharpie-Sniff-athon-in-basements I'm not aware of? Lawd oh lawd, the insanity!

This is right up

there with the banning of bath salts! Seriously, you can't buy those anymore in a lot of places because some genius decided he would sniff them and see what happens and apparently he liked it and told his friends. Where does this end? How many everyday household items are they going to start carding you for or banning all together because some brain dead teenager may think of some "off label" use for it. I would say that we are more than halfway down that slippery slope and not too far from fatally crashing at the bottom.

Yup: "Where does this end?"

all of these, from big (gun purchases) to little (marker purchase ID-ing) 'inconveniences' are basically all in the name of slave training: it's their way of letting the 'Peons' know, who rules, who owns the world.

Welps, as y'all know, when a man/woman has to ask permission from someone else to do something, or to acquire anything, you're not really free, but a slave.

Have ever mentioned, how much I hate these terrorist corporatist scums??

I think I've

heard you mention it a time or two..;) Well, I would suppose it's about time to stop asking for permission. Intentional non-compliance of unjust and unconstitutional laws/mandates in large enough numbers may be the answer. I started doing that a while ago and it's very liberating. Peace. :)

yup, resist,

by not 'resisting,' is my motto .o)

that, to me is the essence of what non-compliance, essentially comes down to.

before, I used to feel like I 'had to' reconcile apathy vs. noncompliance, but nowadays, seeing as how history seems to be on my side? not so much.D

noncompliance is not apathy. in fact, it is the only solution; building, and 'living' a parallel voluntary system, which will eventually surpass the current paradigm.

it is very liberating, indeed.

IMHO, there's no use in 'appealing' to a bunch of sociopathic lunatics (ie. corporatist bankster ruling class and their sycophantic dutiful turd govt terrorists & MSM scums, whom, currently dominate) who have always been and always will be a bunch of sociopathic psychotic lunatics, as there has NEVER in the history of mankind in which tyrants stopped themselves, FROM themselves: their hubris always has had the predictable cycle of leading them to their own eventual downfall.

that, frankly is the only solace/silverlining, if there is some Cosmic Karma in all this: the tyrants will surely fall.

of course, unfortunately, history also shows us that they will burn the world, along with them, as they go down, however brief that interim period may be.

it seems all too clear that we're all about to face some rough waters ahead (to put it mildly), during that said interim at the least, between the coming inevitable currency collapse, then post-dustup rise out of the mess.

welps, here's to history.o/

What the hell? Have they

What the hell? Have they started making them smell good or something? Every single person I knew hated the smell or at least found it unpleasant.
With that said, they will also sometimes card you if you buy superglue. Who came up with this I have no idea, but you dont get high off of superglue, you get dead.
The fumes will bind to the cells in your lungs preventing them to taking in oxygen. I had this happen by accident before. Accidently ripped open a tube and had the fumes waft right up into my face while I was breathing in. I was out of breath for days after that. All I could mostly do was walk a little and sit calmly or I would end up being out of breath.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Known this for several years.

Known this for several years. You get carded sometimes for buying sharpies cuz they don want chilruns getting high. Why can't they sniff crayola markers like we did back in the day?

lawd have mercy! when I used to render illustrations and

design drafts, I used to use THE most toxic (but oh so wonderfully nostalgic) markers, saturated with Xylene (though, suppose the formulation could've changed, now): Chartpak AD markers.

Frankly, there's no other marker in the world with the type of saturation that, that produces: not PrismaColor, not Pantone Tria, not Copic, etc. And if pressed down hard enough, it'd create these wonderful watercolor-like 'brushstrokes' that simply cannot be replicated with other markers' tips.

Frankly, if one were to use the AD markers consistently for over 10min in a small confined space without any ventilation, they may just pass out. And, those never required ID-ing.o/

WTF is this world coming to?? Lawd oh lawd!

crazy, craaaaaayzay world.

I do remember those lunatic controlfreak douchebags tried something similar with Elmer's Glue, way back when...

Hot damn, this current degenerate political paradigm cannot END fast enough!!!
