probably are. i would argue in favour of enough of a tax on it to try and make alcohol cover the costs it causes to the health system etc. but not much more than that. i might be a boring vegan drug-free non-drinker but i'm not mental enough to think prohibition works in anyway whatsoever or that people shouldn't be able to merrily harm themselves if they choose to do so.

that's about how it went down when I lived there. I'd never been in snow and needed to get something out of the car, thought it couldn't possibly be that cold and went out in bare feet. That was a mistake. The snow on top semi melted with the rain then froze again while I was getting drunk with Aidan, Dan and Hugh, slept in the back that night and it was so warm and I finally realised that snow caves work.

No snow in Wellington, unfortunately. Just sporadic rain, trees & slips of varying sizes across roads, shit getting washed away plus lots of wind gusts, sometimes containing bushes, bits of houses, small pets, etc. It's pretty bullshit.

Well I live in the highest altitude settlement in Canada, so these rivers that are causing all the trouble basically start where I am. Canmore is about 60 clicks downstream from here.

Main probs we have is that all the bridges between here and civilisation have washed out so we're all running off supplies basically.

Just stoked me and the missus did a big grocery shop the other day and I picked up a bunch of new video games lol.

That and years of playing Fallout have prepped me if this all goes tits up...
