I think that's sort of subjective depending on the area, i.e. how 'dope' almost totally refers to weed in Australia where practically everywhere else it refers to heroin (often a source of confusion).
Oh, dope refers to weed here? Yeah, shows what I know!

I'm pretty sure I made some remark about somebody being either stoned or high on marijuana, and I was told that I used the wrong one. Now I can't remember which it was, though! I always thought they were synonyms. Maybe it was cocaine though, now that you mention it being more acceptable to use high for that ...

And gear?

So, I need to be hazed anyway?

Oooh, the old one is funky.

Here's one of my own photos showing both old and new Melbourne trams. At right is SW5 728, the oldest operational tram in Melbourne besides the restaurant trams (it's from 1939), and at left is C1 3013 from 2001.



I looove SW5 728.

It's the way of the Superthread. If I don't administer the initiation ritual, people may have my head.

It's only taking the Purity Test and posting your result: 100 Point Purity Test

As we've just been discussing, we're going to write our own one, which will be significantly more nerdy! "Do you have over 1,000 posts on an Internet forum? Do you have over 1,000 on the Superthreads alone?"

It looks awesome. Clearly, somebody with Yarra Trams also thought so recently, since there was this rather poorly executed campaign to stop fare evaders by emphasising "bad karma", and it had ads written in English but made to look like it was in some kind of faux-Bengali script.

I'm also known for my fondness of the Z3 class, from 1979-84. I took this photo of Z3 120 back in April:

And gear?
Gear is almost the only term used for heroin here nowadays. But since it's not so big a problem lately, you hear less of it. A few of my Minlaton friends were on it and probably still are, though.

I have been meaning to stonedpost here for a while now, but I need to buy some masivly wiXXed 420 muddafuckin sheet first. Crank up some Swervedriver and such...

I have like 23,000+ on one and nearly 10,000 on another.

See, I'm paranoid that my camera will be confiscated by security at concerts, so that's the one time I never take it with me. Ali can attest that this came back to bite me before the Porcupine Tree concert in April, when the only operational B1 class tram in Melbourne ran past us while we waited in line. Luckily enough, I saw it again a few days later when I had my camera.

Do they confiscate cameras at concerts? I wouldn't know, I've never been to one.
I know people take pics with theirs and use their phones but yeah, do they sneak them or something?
