A habitual user of marijuana who does not conform to the common stereotypes; a regular pot user who does not refer to him or herself as a pothead.
Usually distinguished from a stoner in that the THC enthusiast has a job, goals, and art on their walls portraying something other than Bob Marley.
Person who doesn't grasp the difference: "You smoke every day? You're such a stoner/pothead/burnout/loser."
Person who does: "What do you mean? I have a degree and a better job than yours. I'm not some filthy hippie, I'm just a THC enthusiast."

An online current events and culture magazine currently owned by the Washington Post. Slate features a wide variety of columns and articles (The Explainer, Dear Prudence, The Green Lantern) as well as a number of blogs such as The XX Factor and Kausfiles. Slate is known for its humorous, often irreverent style, and has acknowledged its own liberal bias and contrarian tendencies. Often highlights events and legislation which are largely passed over by the mainstream newsmedia. Originally adopted a "liberal hawk" stance on the US invasion of Iraq, but has since become increasingly critical of the occupation's management. Slate updates continuously with new articles and features added throughout the week.
I read a great article on Slate the other day about Parliament and the afronaut movement.

A modern-day ailment unique to the exceptionally well-informed, especially as pertains to followers of current events. Those afflicted with source fatigue suffer the inability to name a direct source for something they bring up in conversation. In most cases the afflicted will emphasize their certainty that they are quoting a reliable source, although they cannot name a specific one.
Joe: "I saw the funniest news story today. A squirrel chewed into a power line, burst into flames, then fell down directly onto a new car. It rolled into the engine and blew the car up. I think it broke my ability to laugh."
John: "No way. Uh-uh. Where did you read that?"
Joe: "Oh, it was... um... I think it was from NPR or something. Or, um. Maybe... uh, Fark? No, no, I think it came in my email. Or... huh. Shit. I'm not sure, but I know it was for real.
John: Sounds like a bad case of source fatigue.
