Well the headline's a little misleading, because it exempts all 3 private cigar clubs. But I find the whole thing odd.

Firstly, it's not surprising that private clubs can do what they want; that's typically the way things work. But the ban is kind of silly. Are the masses going to Beverly Hills for their smoking needs? No. All you're doing is inconveniencing a few wealthy jerks, and some tourists. And you're boosting business in all the neighboring areas. It's not like you'd have to go far to get to the nearest tobacco-laden zip code. Dumb.

So the way I see this story is it's so easy to get to the top to Everest that everyone does it and then they die of boredom waiting in a traffic jam at the top to take a pic.




BTW/I conquer Everest like every month. It only take me like 3 hours to get from my house to the summit:

Everest really needs to expand. Build an Everest 2 right next door and make it 10 feet taller, or an Everest with a different theme. Space Everest or Underwater Everest, something like that.

Zolgensma is a gene therapy that treats spinal muscular atrophy in infants and will cost $2,125,000. Novartis will allow purchasers of the drug to make five annual payments of $425,000. Golly gee, how magnanimous of Novartis! Maybe in a few years there will be a generic equivalent that will cost only one million dollars.

FDA approves Zolgensma, the nation's most expensive drug

Barstool's thing is taking news stories and giving them a new spin and better headline, and they have outdone themselves with this one:

Don't You Hate It When You Accidentally Shoot Your Balls Off While You Have Balloons Filled With Weed Stuffed In Your Ass?
