The obvious joke today would be to write something about it being 4-20. Holy sinsemilla, dude! You don’t know about 4-20?

We live in a time of great transition, Betsteroids. Chaos has descended upon the world. What once seemed black and white has become a muddled, confusing gray. Great things will happen this month as forces more powerful than any of us get unleashed.
