Cookies and Cannabis

One San Francisco Girl Scout has come up with a direct-marketing campaign that would make the guys from Mad Men (and Peggy) proud.

After setting up shop outside the Green Cross medical marijuana clinic on Monday, Danielle Lei sold out of cookies in just 45 minutes. Her mom, Carol, was there to help her out and make sure that she learned something from the experience.

“They learn that they’re not drugged out,” Carol told the East Bay Express. “Many have serious needs, and are just a little different.”

“And they get very hungry after!” added Danielle, 13. “I can’t smell anything because my nose is stuffed up.”

Coincidentally, one of the most popular strains of pot sold inside the dispensary is called Girl Scout Cookies. Now, thanks to the Leis, Green Cross customers can purchase very different variations of that product on either side of the dispensary door.

Danielle has until March 16 to hit her target of 1,200 boxes and she’ll try to make that happen later this week. According to the Green Cross Facebook page, Danielle will be back on Saturday.

“As promised, the Girl Scouts will be returning to The Green Cross!,” according to a post on Facebook. “They’ll be here from 4-6 pm this Saturday, February 22. So come support this great cause and enjoy some delicious Girl Scout Cookies in the process! Half the proceeds will go toward Alzheimer’s related charitable causes. Cookies, cannabis and charities, what more can you ask for!?”

25th Anniversary of Bill & Ted’s Comics

This week marks a momentous occasion — the 25th anniversary of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. It’s a milestone that deserves observing. But after the customary re-watch of Excellent Adventure andBill & Ted’s Bogus Journey you might find yourself loitering outside of the neighborhood Circle K, sobbing into a pretzel and wondering how you’ll ever fill the bleeding Bill & Ted-shaped hole in your life.

Never fear, true believer. Like any successful film series of the late 1980s and early ’90s, the Bill & Tedmovies spawned a slew of spinoffs: videogames, an animated series, and even a terrible live-action pilot. Unfortunately, most of those have aged with considerably less grace than the movies themselves. However, there’s once exception: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Comic Book — a short-lived Marvel series that, like the films, was way better than anyone would’ve expected. Read the entire article here.

Just Say No to Buffering

Here’s a common scenario:

You’re enthralled in a TV series that you’ve waited months to see on Netflix. Your favorite character in on the screen and you know something good is about to happen. When suddenly the show stops and you see this familiar word on the screen –

buffering…

buffering…

buffering…

 

Annoying?

Indeed.

 

Frustrating?

Absolutely.

 

The bad news is according to recent reports by Ars Technica, your ISP could be throttling Netflix and Amazon.  Although there is currently no hard evidence that Verizon and Comcast are in fact throttling, it may now be legal in the U.S. thanks to Verizon convincing a court to mostly shut down net neutrality rules.

However it is evident (because buffering happens) that somewhere between Netflix servers and your connection, congestion is happening.
