Unknown to most, hallucinogenic salvia is legal

Salvia divinorum a hallucinogenic leaf that is legal in most of the US that when the crushed leaves are smoked or chewed render a 5- to 20-minute hallucinogenic high. Salvia has been smoked for centuries by Mazatec Indians.
When chewed and kept in the mouth or smoked and held in the lungs briefly, salvia induces everything from a meditative calm to a hallucinatory state.
When purchased, sometimes via the Internet, the substance frequently comes with warnings: Don't take it and try to drive. Don't take it if you're pregnant or nursing. Don't mix it with other drugs.
Originally grown exclusively in Oaxaca, Mexico, salvia was cultivated by Mazatec shamans for spiritual healing purposes.

Sarcastic Police Comments

‘You know, stop lights don’t come any redder than the one you just went through.’
‘Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They stretch after awhile.’
‘If you take your hands off the car, I’ll make your birth certificate a worthless document.’
‘If you run, you’ll only go to jail tired.’
‘Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that’s the speed of the bullet that’ll be chasing you.’
‘You don’t know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?’
‘Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don’t think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I am the shift supervisor?’
‘Warning! You want a warning? OK., I’m warning you not to do that again or I’ll give you another ticket.’
‘The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?’
‘Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in animal poop.’
‘Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets I get a day off paid .’
‘In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC.’
‘How big were those ‘two beers’ you say you had?’

‘I’m glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail.
‘You didn’t think we give pretty women tickets? You’re right, we don’t. Sign here.’

7 Stupid Online Security Mistakes You're Probably Making

Consumer Reports posted a list of 7 common online security mistakes that you might be making — and assuming you were protected was #1. Now, we know our readers aren't making these mistakes because they are so responsible and awesome, but maybe you have a family member who keeps sending money to Nigeria and wondering why Bank of America keeps emailing when they don't have an account. Maybe you could send this their way?
7. Shopping online like you do in stores.
Avoid using a debit card and always look for the "https" in the website's address. You can get a virtual account number from your credit-card company. It’s good for only one purchase from a specific vendor.
6. Clicking on a pop-up that tells you your PC is secure.
CR's survey showed "that 13 percent of respondents who saw such a pop-up tried to close it but launched it instead; 3 percent clicked on a pop-up and got a malware infection." Block pop-ups and/or be very careful to click the X, not the ad.
5. Thinking your Mac protects you from everything.
Mac users fall prey to phishing scams at about the same rate as Windows users, says CR.
4. Downloading Free Software.
"Fish-tank screen savers and smiley faces" are the enemy of everything good in the world. Download software from reputable sites (, and check out our sister site Lifehacker to see if they have any recommendations.
3. Using one password for everything.
Dumb! Here's some advice for creating and managing good passwords.
2. Accessing your account through email links.
Don't do this. Don't. Please stop. Stop! CR says: No matter how official an e-mail message looks, trying to access a financial account by clicking on embedded Web links is risky. If the e-mail message is fraudulent, a cybercriminal could use the account number and password you enter to steal your identity or empty your bank account.
1. Assuming your security software is working.
CR says: "Renew the subscription when the software prompts you. Make sure your security software is active when you’re online and that it has been updated within the past week or so."

Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Man tries to cover up his mistake
The four-time drunken driver who drank White-Out to try to mask his breath from police was sentenced to 18 months to two years in prison for felony drunken driving.
Juan Briceno, 33, and his attorney, David Nich Jr., had begged for probation, saying that Briceno realizes he has a drinking problem and had entered an outpatient treatment program.

Lost New York Man Crashes Into Map Store
Losing your way in New York City is no fun, especially when you get so confused that you crash into the one place that can help you — a map store.
That's what happened to a Bronx man this week, when he became befuddled as he left a West 43rd Street parking garage at about 8 a.m. and made a right turn into the front of a Hagstrom Map shop next door, smashing the plate glass to smithereens.
Rodney Bailey's green Ford Expedition clipped two women as it careened into the Hagstrom's window. Both were hospitalized with injuries that police said were not critical.
Waitress Places Order: "Freeze, Or I'm Going To Shoot"
An unarmed coffee shop waitress in Hillborough County, Fla., tackled and subdued an alleged armed robber after he hit the Valrico State Bank on Friday.
The Da Silva’s Coffee Shop employee had been trained in Germany as a police officer, but she was only half the size of the suspect she took down.
Local police said suspect Jeffrey Merritt, 44, ran past Da Silva’s on the way to his getaway car after robbing the bank.
The waitress — the Tampa Tribune reports she wished to remain unidentified — reportedly saw Merritt running with something and looking behind him. She chased him down, yelling, "Freeze or I’m going to shoot" and then tackled him.
She did not have a gun, but the bluff worked, and the suspect surrendered.
Bystanders then helped the waitress sit on Merritt until police arrived.
