I hate driving. Not because I don't love operating a vehicle, but because other drivers are complete idiots. If everone would stop being in such a damn hurry and think about each other once in a while, the world would be a much better place. I'm so sick of being cut off, and inconsiderate people thinking they're more important than me, that they have to get home faster than me. Seriously, why can't St. Louis have decent public transportation? That would completely make my day so much better. I wouldn't have to worry about totally incompetent drivers.

In fact, my biggest wish is that everyone would get up and smoke some green every day of their lives. Then smoke again at lunch. Then again at dinner.

Think about what that would do to the world. No one would be in a rush to do anything. Food of all types and varities, cooked well or poorly, would be delicious. We'd all be well hydrated. No one would argue, or have stress-induced panic attacks. We'd be happy and considerate, because no one would be in a hurry to get anywhere or get anything done. Perfection? Gone. Overachievement? Buh-bye. The world would be a laid back, relaxed, content place. No one would step on anyone else to get ahead, or cut you off to get home faster because they're more important than you. No one would yell at the cashier for something completely out of their control. No one would butt in front of you in line. Wow. It's fantastic.

I'm not talking getting rip-roaring high all day long. Just a few puffs would do ya. Imagine living without stress. Does this world exist? If so, please draw me a map. I'm so there.
