420 Points! w00t!

Seriously, guys, I do not need to know, nor do I care, that you are so wasted. I'm cool with whatever you want to ingest to enhance your gaming experience, but just keep me out of it. I don't know which of Microsoft's advertising campaigns seriously appealed to the herbal crowd, but I've been stunned at the sheer volume of stoners I've encountered on Xbox Live. I can't count the number of times games have been paused or delayed so that SpacemanSpliff can "grab a quick hit". Moments later there's the sound of a lighter catching and the gentle burbling of some sort of smoking apparatus. THC clearly affects your ability to remember there's a mute button on the damn controller. I'm trying to race here and not only am I treated to your living room antics, but now I have to race knowing that I'm being beaten by someone under the influence.

My XBox Live requests are simple:

  • Please don't tell me how high you were, how high you are, or how high you intend to get.
  • If you need to spark a doobie, simply ask for a time-out, mute your headset, and return when you're done.
  • When you use your cell to order pizza to quell the munchies, again, please mute your headset.
  • Only introduce yourself once. There is no need to repeatedly remind me that you are "Rick James, Bitch!"

I would also recommend Microsoft seriously consider designing a new controller to keep smoke breaks from disrupting our Live experience. Nintendo has already demonstrated their ability to cater to the needs of their fans who, evidently, currently need to stop gaming in order to play the bongos for a bit.

Hehe...awesome.

And please guys. Log out of TeamSpeak if you're gonna start looking at porn!. I really can't emphasize that enough.

HEH- great one.

I've encountered that with UT2k4. Some stoned clanner comes on and proceeds to kick everyone's ass. After I log off and go to cry on my bed I console myself with the following fact:

Pot (like crack) gives you insane reflexes.

So it's the weed I'm losing against, not the player.

That's because everything is in bullet time.

Actually, it doesn't.
But it does allow you to focus to an unbelievable degree.
Pot is to concentration as steroids are to strength.

And those that are long-term stoners, that function extremely well when baked, typically underperform(relatively speaking) when straight.

So the next time you lose to a stoner or crackhead, remember, you did it without resorting to perfomance enhancing drugs.

Oh that is sweet! I want one!

*applause*

Brilliant, Sway.

HAHAHAAAAaaaH!H!HHh!!HAHAHA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahaha! DHHDHAAAAAAHHHA AAAAAAHHAHAHHHHAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!HAHHHAAHHAH! HAhAHAHA!11!!!111!!1!!

Damn, I am SO hIIIGH. That iS fuuuuuunnnny!1!!!

funny as hell... but am i the only one who doesn't get the title? 420 points?

Do I need to smoke the mentioned pot?

This is the reason I don't really want to voice chat with random strangers while playing games. I would prefer to live in my naive world where I assume most of the people I am playing against are actually fairly normal people just like me.

I think 420 is slang for marihuana, the evil drug.

As long as we're explaining things, I missed the memo on where I'm Rick James Bitch came from. I find it quite funny, yet I don't know why. It was even weirder when I confused Rick James with Rick Springfield, singer of "Jessie's Girl".

Dave Chappelle has a show on Comedy Central and they had a skit once where he played a young Rick James in flash backs and the REAL Rick James was also in it talking about the past.

Chappelle as young Rick said "I'm Rick James, bitch" a lot.

I believe "420" is the police call to/from the dispatcher when making a pot arrest? So stoners and such now toke up at 420PM as kind of a shot at the police. You'll often find radio stations play Grateful Dead, DMB, PHISH, and other pot friendly tunes at 4:20PM as a subtle hint towards this.

And for Rick James...This was on the Dave Chapelle show...and EVERYtime I play on xbox live, particularly Rainbow Six I'm stuck with someone saying this over and over and over.

Awesome comic. However, where are frog and stork?

STONER!!!!!!

I still like my response better.

Wow, I'm really falling behind on my street slang. Is "groovy" still in?

Simply brilliant Sway. Hats off.

Perfect.

That is funnier than the comic. I went to college in Boulder Colorado, so I know a thing or two about the stoner life, and the first thing that comes to mind when describing these kind-hearted folks is hardly "focused"

I'd like to point out once again how hilarious this is.

Stoners who play games are rather annoying. Worse when they post while high. They should make that stuff illegal, simply to keep me from being annoyed. Also let's throw McDonalds in jail for their commercials.

Groovy is only cool if you say it like Ash in Evil Dead II. And only if you say it in the presence of people who think that Evil Dead II is still cool

I remember when that Chappelle's show episode first aired, that catch phrase (among a few) was an instant classic among my friends. Imagine the horror when suddenly *every* asshole in his 20's and 30's started saying it everywhere -- bars, work, xbox live... you get the picture. It was a devastating reminder that I'm not as original as I think I am.

Sway, that comic is dead-on and brilliant. I love drinkin' and playing xbox as much as the next guy, but I don't sit there and brag about it to the strangers I'm losing to. Do these people want us to congratulate them or something?

Another one spot on, Sway. I had one of these idiots show up in Day of Defeat the other night. He was babbling on and on in his squeaky pre-pubescent voice, mostly about smoking. Thank goodness you can mute players in Steam-based games, and it wasn't long before the entire server had muted him.

I live in a college town, and I have to agree with friends who've commented that they would rather have potheads for neighbors, than guys who get drunk and smash things. That said...

Someone pointed out to me that people who are good at a game while high, have mostly practiced while high. Pot damage to your brain is different than alcohol. With alcohol, you wipe out whole swaths of brain cells. With pot, just different random synapses are destroyed. This is like blocking off random streets in NY. Sure you can get where you're going, but eventually it's a really slow, long, roundabout trip. But by then, everything's cool man, and you don't much care.

Man I sure don't have to practice to sound like a teacher...(student teaching in January).

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em! "Hooka it up!" -sigh- ... I kid!

Seriously though, I haven't ran into any on Xbox Live, but I couldn't even begin to count the number of stoned morons who would blab about how high they were while playing C-Strike. For me, it only makes me know that I'm *that* much more a better person.

I think it would take pot (or something stronger) for me to play counterstrike online again.

Now that cartoon has to be one of the funniest things I have seen in awhile. Again, I am glad that I am not the only one humbled by a 16-21 yr old stoned off his arse while playing online. I would buy one of those and enshrine it just because I would get the giggles while looking at it and I wouldnt even be high. I need to get my Xbox onto Live when I get home now that you can do it wirelessly. Awesome toon Sway.
