    I think you need to redefine what an insult is to you. Also stop acting like you (or fab) are being persecuted, you're not.

    I'm not acting like I'm persecuted. But I think it's insulting to imply that I had a poor childhood and shouldn't have been able to afford college because my parents enjoy smoking pot and I have done it with them.

    Because I like FMA and have stoner parents? That doesn't seem to be much on which to base a relationship.

    That depends, though, do you look anything like Roy Mustang?

    You lucky bastards. Does it apply to grad school as well?

    Call me a pussy, but I am what I have.

    I never did drugs and I have no intention to. Don't want to take chance. What if my body reacts negatively to it?

    I'm pretty sure that's the case in all of Europe. Unless of course you want to learn how to cook, then that shit becomes way expensive. Damn you higher learning and your non-tolerance for government funded culinary arts!

    There's nothing wrong with not doing drugs. The "reacts negatively" thing is part of the reason I'm kind of scared to try psychedelic drugs like LSD or magic mushrooms, because I'm worried about what I would see in my bad trips. (Though I probably will end up trying them anyway, when I get my first good opportunity to do so.)

    I just get mad when someone tries to suggest my parents neglected me because they smoke pot. So I have no quarrel with you.

    You are acting like you're being persecuted. The post wasn't even directed at you, yet you immediatly jump at it like it was and start being defensive. Point in case. Also it's a simple fact that not smoking / not doing drugs means you save the money you'd otherwise spend on that, which you can then spend on other things like a gambling addiction.

    Heh, awesome. Wish they'd do that here. But it's all been budget cuts since the crisis.

    I don't even know if we have the concept of grad school, but basically uni, college and school is paid for the government. I think you pay for uni/college once you reach 25 or if you go back to college/uni.

    Also, no one seemed to notice the college/collage joke. Oh well.

    Yeah, but the only reason that conversation was happening was because I mentioned that my parents had smoked pot with me. So that's why it felt directed at me.

    The money thing is why I personally don't ever buy drugs; when I've done them, it's most been at parties where somebody else brought a bag of weed and shared it with everyone. I'm a broke-ass grad student and don't have money for luxuries like that.

    You definitely have it, but maybe you use a different term. In the U.S., "grad school" is anything beyond a bachelors degree, so masters/Ph.D./etc. (Although it's not usually used with professional degrees, like law or medical school.)

    Then again, I only have Ph.D. left after this, and even in the U.S., most decent Ph.D. programs pay your whole tuition and give you a living stipend. So probably not an issue.

    Oh man, reading the AMA on reddit for bordain, and I'm laughing my ass off.
    I am Anthony Bourdain. Ask me Anything. : IAmA
    For me he's one of the truest, most sincere tv chef's, considering how he's one of the few who has actually been in a restaurant. I really want to reach his status one day, I really really do.

    Oh, there's not much to that for me. I view myself as a worthless piece of shit who has no reason to trudge through every day but does so anyway.

    I'd rather talk about pot, but of course I have nothing to contribute because the only interesting things that happen to me are things that I make interesting to reminisce on because my life is actually mind-numbingly boring and pointless.
