Per link, they are now blaming it directly on marijuana and the release of dopamine.

["It could have been the strain of marijuana that increases the dopamine in the brain, such as sativa,” said Dr. Patricia Junquera, assistant professor at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine...... There are two strains of marijuana called sativa and indica. The sativa increases dopamine and gives you energy while decreasing pain threshold. Indica is a “sleepy high,” she explained. “People don’t really know what the amount of either is in each little packet of marijuana,” she explained. “And we can’t differentiate between the two in the blood, much less in a dead person.” She also suggested that if Eugene had a mental disorder, “the marijuana could have increased even further the dopamine levels and aggravated the situation. So that can’t be ruled out.”]

Italics highlights the contradiction in what she's claiming. The following was in one of the comments for the article and is a recent and well respected study published in a well respected journal.

"CONCLUSIONS:

Unlike other addictions, cannabis dependence of mild to moderate severity is not associated with striatal DA alterations.

Quite the series of compliments! I assure you, though: there are much more entertaining things on this forum than my thread. You should hang out in Tech once in awhile and watch some of the guys there prove how incompetent I am.

Eat your sammich and smile with quiet bemusement, while sagely nodding your head in the direction of a conversation that isn't taking place...it's fun because it worries the humans.

Marijuana...the gateway drug to the zompocalypse. "And that's why we don't do drugs, kids, m'kay?"

I was reading this thread verbatim up to page 30 something (maybe low 40s). But I had to skip ahead to the end, admittedly just scrolling through pictures. Excellent work. As a new, first-time Jeep owner, I'm sure I'm going to be referring to this thread quite a bit for the very detailed information you've presented. You're very thorough and I can appreciate that because, thus far, I don't know my ******* from my elbow on this rig. Thanks much for putting in the effort to provide so many tips and tricks in one convenient thread. A beer for you if you're ever around Boston.

Maybe????

You could put it that way, but you'd only be halfway right.

I do so hate to be mysterious, but...actually, that's a total lie: we here at Muppet Labs LOVE being mysterious. When this particular project becomes a bit more solid I'll be posting a LOT of pictures, and I think that you'll like what we're engineering. Until then...

And so it was done. Sammiches were had by all. Surprisingly, I found the one spicy chicken in the bunch and I jumped on it. At the end of the meeting a bag of chocolate chunk cookies appeared as well. Life was good.

Dumb question time again. I am asking it here because there seems to be a good amount of knowledgable folks keeping up in here therefore I hope I will get an answere by this afternoon when the rapair shall go down. I just replaced my radiator, thermostat, and such last night. Got it all back together and had a leak when I cranked it back up. The leak is from a crack in the thermostat housing. It's not expensive and it is already ordered and at the parts store waiting for me to get off work.


Now for the question: Is there any sort of torque spec on the thermostat housing when I put the new one on? I know it needs to be pretty tight so as to avoid leaks. I am pretty sure that's how i cracked the other one. That and it has probably never been changed before. Thanks in advance for any help. This forum has been a huge help to me in the just over 3 years I have had my four angry squirrel powered heep!
