Man you're a fucking idiot. Your summary of Hashasheen=Stoners is just downright fucking stupid. Even the little I know about them was not that they were "stoner" or "druggies". They imbibed hashish ( a form of hemp and not marijuana) for ecstatic religious purposes. To use something as simple as what you've said and then tell people you don't care if they unfollow your ass shows just how abysmally fucking dumb you are

Let me rephrase that: hashasheen is a slang term for stoners, today.

As for the Nizari Ismailis, they probably did not use hashish or cannabis potions to inspire their assassinations. That story comes from Marco Polo, who wrote it down following his travels in Persia. (In fact, the word Polo uses is “Ashishin.” See Bernard Lewis’ The Assassins: A Radical Sect in Islam, P. 6 - 8. For the spread of Polo’s story into European literature and texts that discussed the sect, Lewis picks it up again on P. 10.)

In fact, the Naziri Ismailis had been labelled hashishiyya by Fatamid Caliph al-Amir, most likely to denote the ill repute of the sect.

It was an abusive term leveled at the sect, not an indicator of what they actually were doing. It spread into European legends, and from there into various drug-using individuals’ work and communities, not to mention literary references.

What I was saying was that I’d adopted an abusive term for my moniker, partially in reverence to Burroughs, and also as a way of making clear the sort’ve posts (which actually sometimes involve cannabis/hashish potions) I might make.

Wanker.

Amélie | 2001 | Jean Pierre Jeunet

Bursting with imagination and having seen her share of tragedy and fantasy, Amelie is not like the other girls. When she grows up she becomes a waitress in a Montmartre bar run by a former dancer. Amelie enjoys simple pleasures until she discovers that her goal in life is to help others. To that end, she invents all sorts of tricks that allow her to intervene incognito into other people’s lives, including an imbibing concierge and her hypochondriac neighbor.

AY, CARAMBA! Don’t be fooled by the cocktail’s beauty. This lovely tasty libation packs a lot of heat. The tiny bird’s eye pepper is more then enough to make grown men shed tears.

  • 100% Agave Highland Tequila (For it’s Sweet Citrus & Floral Notes)
  • Cointreau
  • Freshly Squeezed Grapefruit Juice
  • Bird’s Eye Pepper (aka Thai Chili Pepper)
  • Half Salted Rim Glass

    Got Milk?

    Former California Gov. Gray Davis expressed his dislike for one commercial and asked if there was a way to remove it from the air. It featured two children who refused to drink milk because their elderly next-door neighbor is energetic despite not drinking it. He is going to use his wheelbarrow when suddenly his arms snap off, because without his consumption of milk, his bones are weak and frail. The now-frightened children start imbibing the fluid.

    Inspired Manhattan Apartment Imbibes Dashing Shade And Flair Of Rio!

    Brazil is a nation with a really distinct and exclusive culture, type and aura that is renowned across the globe and Rio is without a doubt its greatest attraction. Hailing from the city, Cristiane Peixoto, a floral designer and her husband Marcus Silberman needed to fill their new $four.5 million apartment in the Upper East Side of Manhattan with the brilliant and brilliant zest of Rio. And at the heart of this wonderful transformation is a magnificent terrace backyard that is filled with rich natural vegetation, an outdoor lounge, a lovely pergola and a lovely tent with seating.
