The point of this entry should really be this: That the word "Cannabis" is not slang at all. Instead it is the accepted botanical Genus name for the plant we know by so many other slang and colloquial terms: Hemp, Pot, Marijuana, Ganja, Weed, etc. etc. (Cannabis sps. sativa, indica, and ruderalis.)
Let the word Cannabis remind us that this indigenous herb, which the self-destructive dominator culture feels it needs to persecute so much, is in fact one of the many gifts from the abundant Earth... as natural as the clouds, the rain, the corn in the fields and all the many fruits of our gracious intelligent, and loving planet, Gaia.

These here fields were planted with Cannabis during the Second World War to provide cheap, sustainable fiber.

He's the man who unwittingly saved America during the Coronavirus outbreak of 2020.

The show Tiger King, which was about him and his exotic animal zoo in Oklahoma, aired on Netflix at the same time everyone was quarantined with COVID-19.

The show depicts the only thing more batshit crazy in America than the outbreak itself, thus giving Americans a sense of hope and normalcy.

As such, it became the main source of entertainment for many, and a major subject of social media discussions during the shutdown.
Thank you Joe Exotic for saving America!

One of several variations of Jamaican / Rasta vulgarities derived from bloodclot It is used as a catch-all swear word, often in the place of bullshit, fuck or shit and definitely has a negative connotation. All derivations come from the Jamaican view of women's menstrual blood as taboo and unsavory. See also bumbaclot
Come straight with me and don't give me any of that ras clot.

A chinger is a telephone fraud device that mimics the frequency made by a pay telephone when money was dropped into it. Putting money in the coin slot caused a DTMF or Dual Tone Multi Frequency signal to be sent out to the central switching box which registered it and when enough money had been inserted into the phone would connect the call. The chinger could mimic that sound and thus produce the equivalent effect of dropping a quarter into the pay phone.

So basically, a chinger allowed the user to make unlimited free calls from certain pay phones. They could be made using a simple pocket electronic address book sold at Radio Shack, and replacing the chip inside to alter the output sound.

They were also known as "red boxes" but the name chinger probably referred to the chiming sound it made when mimicing a quarter drop.

Most modern pay phones no longer use the DTMF tones, rendering the chinger obsolete... but it was fun while it lasted!
Hey gimme that chinger I need to make a phone call.

The word Balearic in its most most simple terms means "of or having to do with the Balearic Islands" which are a group of small islands in the Western Mediterranean near the coast of Spain.

More specifically however, the term Balearic (or "Balearic Beat") has come to mean a genre of music which became popular on the islands of the same name, specifically the Balearic Island of Ibiza.

The Balearic genre is broad and almost means "eclectic" more than any specific style of sound. Generally, it tends towards sunny, melodic, "feel-good" electronic music, as it's birthplace was on the warm sunny beaches of the islands. This may encompass atmospheric house, downtempo, chillout, nu-disco, latin,soul, dub, and re-edits.

As mentioned before, the genre is about being eclectic, so a Balearic Beat DJ will often flow through many different sounds inside a single set. In fact, "Balearic" might be better thought of as a style of DJ'ing rather than a style of music. Still, the flavor always comes back to that sunny island feel and often incorporates smooth soul sounds, acoustic strings and guitar, dreamy vocals, and tempos under 120 BPM.
I was loving the Balearic set that DJ was playing last night during sunset!
