Grannies Gone Wild

Marijuana has slowly become normalized throughout the United States with increasing evidence of both its medicinal powers and its relatively safe, recreational properties (at least when compared to illicit drugs, prescription drugs, and alcohol). While it’s ignorant and misleading to claim that weed is 100 percent user-friendly, I would argue that if you are going to take a substance for fun or relief, it is probably one of the safest bets.

But society’s understanding of marijuana was quite different decades ago, in large part because of false propaganda by the government and media. Because of the vastly perpetuated misinformation regarding weed, many older people of this current generation have never smoked the stuff, believing it to be highly addictive and dangerous. Now that it’s become much less taboo, some older individuals are curious what it’s like to smoke marijuana.

For a good laugh, watch these grannies smoke weed for the first time ever.

Don’t Dress for Success

There are a lot of people in life who place great emphasis and importance on their appearance. Every strand of hair, every stroke of the makeup brush, every creaseless collar must be in perfect order. These same people also tend to have an extensive wardrobe because looking good is pretty contingent on having the best and newest apparel.

But it turns out that the people who look the most put together and trendy may not be the more successful people in this world, which seems rather counterintuitive. You would think those with the most money and power would want to dress the part. As it turns out, there is actually a correlation between successful people and their propensity to dress the same. Every. Single. Day.

Imagine my surprise when I learned this. I mean, I dress the same every day, but that’s because I’m poor and lazy. It certainly has nothing to do with how successful my life has turned out. However, if you look at people like Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and most U.S. Presidents, you will notice a trend in their wardrobe. Or should I say lack of a trend, as their day to day outfit is indiscernible from the next. There is actually a theory behind this phenomenon which the following article describes, explaining why wealthy, influential, and successful men and women are more inclined to be pretty dull with their appearances.
