RIP NORML54601

Is there a general thread where we track dead forum members? Recently learned that the guy quoted twice in my signature, NORML54601, passed a couple of months ago. While I didn't know him personally, I always found his posts entertaining.

We are neither as good as our best moment, nor as bad as our worst moment.

RIP NORML.

Hmm I don't know but I don't think it would be too much to ask that if anyone is dying that they log in to let us know as like the last thing they do.

It would be a great help. From there, who knows...maybe we could establish a Dead Pool for forum members instead of celebrities!!!

Oh no! I was friends with Norml on Facebook. He seemed like a good person.

I remember seeing the username often in posts, but don't remember anything about him.
Didn't realize his last post was over 4 years ago.

Not sure. Those who knew his real name can google him and see that he had a bit of legal issues occur last year. Looked like he was in a mess of shit. And then some more shortly before his death in October.

I previously mentioned that I had a quadruple bypass last January. I was 99% blocked to my heart. Had congestive heart failure. Trying my best to avoid a return trip to the hospital. But one never knows.

I recall that now. I was hoping my jibe pointed more towards 'might' meaning you had the secret to immortality!

Take care!

Out of respect, I won't link to the story, but yeah... "bit of legal issues" and "in a mess of shit" sure is one way to put it...

Don't know about immortality but it's one way to lose weight. Back when I lived in San Diego I was, at times, around 170 pounds. Now I'm around 125.

Toughest part is the lifestyle change. Especially when one loves eating. I haven't gone completely vegan like RandyC after his heart attack but I've dipped my toes into it. When I read food labels, it's not only checking sodium but now includes sugar (and especially added sugar) and fat and cholesterol. It's a head-spinning balance. But I'm trying.

I didn't know that RandyC had gone full vegan. That takes some commitment.

It's too bad that Norml passed away. His posts amused me.

He loves to post pictures of his meals on Facebook. A lot of it looks pretty good. He even drives a Tesla now. He seems pretty content out in TN.

And I'm sorry to hear about Norml.

RIP NORML, and yeah, I am curious too. I definitely remember the name, though the only specific thing I remember is that NORML referred to marijuana legalization.

Now I’m curious about all this crazy shit though.
