Was looking through an old abandoned barn that I was thinking of buying and boy was it my lucky day... Not one, but two pieces of pristine plywood.

I hope that that beat-up Porsche didn't damage the plywood.

The only people that wont get the joke are those that haven't priced lumber in the last 6 months. It really is unbelievable.

Also, that's one reason housing prices have been so expensive lately (although I believe that recently the price of lumber has been dropping..???)

I went to get two sheets of plain old 4/8 cdx plywood a couple weeks ago... $150.00...

Perhaps the bricks you shit after hearing the total will come in handy on your latest project.

Not by much! I've been building a small business, (for something to do), building furniture, (cabinets, tables, easy stuff), I use plywood for a lot of it, you would be surprised how awesome it looks when it's sanded and stained. Anyway...the price of lumber...it costs me twice as much to make something simple like a book shelf, than I can ever sell it for. Don't really need the money, but kinda sucks anyway.

A lot of lumber comes from Canada.  Maybe all this was caused by Trump screwing up NAFTA.

The joke is that the plywood is more valuable than the car. The price of lumber these days is obscenely high.

I've actually done Peyote a few times (strangely it was before I ever tried Marijuana)...also Cocaine, MDMA (long before it was called "Ecstasy"), and several other "dangerous drugs"... but I've never dropped Acid. That was one of two drugs I was too afraid to do. Still am.

That and Scopolamine (AKA "Devil's Breath")-- which is probably considerably more dangerous than Acid.(I believe if you're in good company others can prevent you from doing dangerous things while on Acid).

But Devil's Breath is downright terrifying.

In my youth, I dropped acid right before seeing the Jimmy Hendrix Experience (Hendrix, Noel Redding, and Mitch Mitchell) in concert . Same for Frank Zappa. 

Nothing gets you higher than smoking opium though. Feels like your head is floating away. 

This was all MANY decades ago.

I've been hangin' out on WSB lately (The sub-Reddit called "Wall Street Bets" .that's where a lot of Millennials conspired to manipulate the stocks of Game Stop edited.png?skin=ntNewsTalkers3&v=1605899735   & AMC Entertainment edited.png?skin=ntNewsTalkers3&v=1605899735   edited.png?skin=ntNewsTalkers3&v=1605899735   recently..). Fascinating glimpse of the mentality of Millennials-- mostly serious  posts about the market, including a lot of humor ( very adolescent humor!). For me a source of some fascinating insights as to how Millennials think...

I was thinking of posting some of it, but they are mostly "in jokes" that most people wouldn't understand (unless they were somewhat familiar with the stockmarket...as well as the weather girls on Spanish Language Stations).

A while back I started spending time watching Tik Tok videos. Much of it is rather addicting....

But I had another reason...I've always been fascinated by trends in society...and Millennials (especially the younger ones) actually "think different" than we do...I was curious to see how they are different...

Tik Tok may be in legal trouble for not putting a disclaimer on a certain challenge (writing on glass with gas and then lighting it).  A young girl ended up with 3rd degree burns over a third of her body.
