and then you drive home ???
Why do you assume someone is drinking and driving? Same obvious rules apply, not sure why drinking at a heli event and drinking at any other social gathering should be different...

If you are not responsible, problems will arise. The sun sets in the west too!

you are right Carey,

We have a beer at the end of the day at fun flies and various events. Sometimes around the fire or sometimes we go to a resturant or lounge after a day out.

I've never seen anyone in our are drink and fly. I've never seen anyone get drunk to the point it was noticeable in anyway.

One group has a guy who pretty much yells out "Time to switch to guns!" when the sun is low and the day has ended for those who don't night fly. That is code for break out the beer. But always we are responsible.

If addiction has nothing to do with will power, it also has nothing to do with the various substances we are discussing. Drugs don't have addictions, people do. Take away one vice, they will find another. Just look at the crap they cook up in jails when there is no fix around. They will inject ink from pens for crying out loud, you think we should classify ink as an addictive substance? Or just classify the people who are that desperate as out of control in general?

I still maintain that if you think THC is a performance booster, that it is just solid proof of how much THC impairs perception. That or you never smoked enough of it to have a real working knowledge of it's effects.

THC is the only drug the Olympic drug comittee will let slide if you test positive for it after winning a gold. That's because they are not under the same illusions as some here.....

If thats a fact smitty, how do you explain this?:

Top American wrestler Warren to miss Olympics after 2nd positive test

http://sports.espn.go.com/oly/news/story?id=3198698

You really do need to consider cutting back on the wacky tobacky this early in the morning.

The above is further proof that, at the very least, wacky tobacky will affect your ability to think before you type.

Hey Dummy, er.. I mean Dennis, um, no, I guess I do mean Dummy.... ever hear of this guy:

[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ross_Rebagliati]

Dennis, your so eager to make a witty contribution you run right past looking ANYTHING up.

Wrong again dumb dumb. And not only is this jerk NOT a medal winner (and gold no less with my example) it wasn't the Olympic comittee that banned him, you Americans did and that made him ineligible for the olympics, you kicked your own guy out you fool!!! The very article you link to has this paragraph right in the middle of it:
The seven-page decision outlined Warren's argument that a two-year ban, which makes him ineligible for the Olympics, was too harsh a penalty for using a drug that did not enhance his performance.
So thanks for reinforcing my point but do you have to make yourself look like such an uneducated fool to do it?

Rebagliati is best known for testing positive for THC after winning a gold medal for Canada in the giant slalom in snowboarding's first Winter Games in Nagano, Japan in 1998. His medal was revoked, although he won it back after mounting a secondhand-smoke defense.
http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/m...moke_rings.html

He did win his medal back on appeal. But, that does say a lot for the Olympic Committee that does not pot smoking and winning medals.

Here is more:

http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/24029702

Marion Jones' teammates stripped of medals

BEIJING - Marion Jones’ former relay teammates paid the price Thursday for her doping offenses, losing their medals from the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
The International Olympic Committee executive board disqualified and stripped the medals from the athletes who won gold with Jones in the 1,600-meter relay and bronze in the 400-meter relay.
If you want more smitty, look it up yourself and get off that weed man !!!!!

Me on Drugs? Dennis, your whole strategy here seems to rely on nobody checking into the links you provide. And that is so obvious you must be high to think we can't see through it.

The first link, is about how on Appeal, the gold medal winner was able to overturn a olympic comittee decision on his doping case. Again, more support in my favor.

In the second article you link to, it is about Marion Jones, who DID NOT get busted for THC at all, and her teammates who did not get caught doping in ANY WAY getting their medals taken away because Jones:
... admitted in federal court in October that she used the designer steroid “the clear” from September 2000 to July 2001.
So again, your just too dumb to follow the conversation here.

Keep linking this in other threads please, it means I only have to prove you a fool in one thread and everyone can see it.

What performance enhancing drugs have been or are banned in the Olympics?

Bottom paragraph smitty:
S8. CANNABINOIDS
Natural or synthetic delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and THC-like cannabinoids (e.g. hashish, marijuana, HU-210) are prohibited..."
http://sportsanddrugs.procon.org/vi...estionID=001238

Want more smitty? Let me know.

Remove your joint, stick your foot in your mouth. This was a trap. You fell for it hook line and sinker.

My my, you are still making my point for me, THC is not performance enhancing and is the only drug, banned by them or not, that they have ever overturned a decision on. You take cough medicine you won't get your medal back, you get caught on weed, snowboarding none the less, and while they might not consider giving you TWO medals for the acheivment, they surly let you keep the one you did win.

All you are doing is proving that when they attempted banning it, and push comes to shove, we got to keep the gold. They were paper tigers because EVERYONE knows.......

Weed doesn't enhance performance.......

Thanks for making my point, over and over and over Dumbis.

Your statement earlier in this conversation:

Its BANNED smitty. Cases ARE on appeal. Anyone has a right to appeal a decision by the Olympic Committee.

Don't matter. ITS BANNED AS A "PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUG"

But they won't hold you to it.... And you can keep your medal....

You know, there are laws in some states against Sodemy, some of these same states allow gays to marry......

So ya, sometimes rules that fall out of fasion still remain on the books, but they are only real if they actually enforce them.

Until Ross has his gold taken away (which isn't gonna happen now) then the law might as well not exist.

People once thought the earth was flat, do you also think that because that USED to be the pervailing thought, we should still follow that belief today?

Neither. Totally clean.

Finally realized that "Performance Enhancing" ain't all its cut out to be. Especially by some of those Canadians.

Been there, done that. I can speak from experience. A total waste of time and resources.

OK, we can leave it at that.

I think the olympic comittee just tosses everything it doesn't want under the banner "performance enhancing" I don't think it really has anything to do with performance, I think it's more like "Because we said so!, now stop asking questions!"

I really think they should have classified the french and russian figure skating judges as "Performance Enhancing"... After all.....
They were far more effective than any THC ever was.....

Thats pretty ridiculous smitty.

But, when you are a pot smoker, I understand how far the levels of ridiculousness can go.

WAS a pot smoker. Long time ago.

You still don't read to well. Must be to much pot smoke stains on the face of your monitor. Get out the Windex, some paper towels, clean monitor, and read again.
That makes me pretty sure you are drunk.
Is there a point there, or is that just an attempt at more dull Canadian humor?
