    The Best Way to Post At tPF

    I've figured it out... you must be drunk AND high.

    Many members make the mistake of posting here drunk OR high.

    No, no, no. That is not how you do it.

    Being high allows you to float around in the realm of abstraction, which is needed in order to properly intellectualize complex topics.

    But being drunk gives you enough fight to withstand the endless, obnoxious posturing of debate forums without becoming so annoyed that you just quit out of frustration or boredom.

    You're welcome.

    Ah, that's what I've been doing wrong. I don't get high.

    I'll pass, though I do appreciate the offer. Smoking it don't do anything good for me so I doubt eating it would be any different.
