AM: Are you more Jeff Spicoli or Gran Lebowski?
KS: Definitely Lebowski. I've always been a "go-with-the-flow" kind of guy. I try not to get involved with drama unless someone goes out of their way
to screw with me. I have a positive outlook on life, enjoy nature, and good tunes (but not the Eagles). Granted, I don't dress like a slob, but I'm
confident in myself and what I like. Just like the Dude.
Spicoli is too "stoner stereotype" and I never really identified myself with him. Though I would have LOVED to have ordered a pizza to one of my high
AM: Most believable and non-believable conspiracy theories?
-Cannabis and the War on Drugs were made illegal and remain so due to racism.
-Big oil uses an unscientific and politically tinted propaganda smear campaign to discredit Global Warming theory.
-Pearl Harbor attack was known about ahead of time to help us get into WWII.
-Religions exist as control mechanisms (Early Christian belief was co-opted by the Roman Empire to create Catholicism to control pagans for instance)
-MLMs are really pyramid schemes and scams.
-Anything involving the NWO, Masons, Illuminati, or other grand world spanning conspiracies (I just don't believe humans are capable of putting
together a secret organization that spans lifetimes and distances; if and when they exist they aren't as nefarious as other CTers believe)
-Antivaxx campaign, Homeopathy, Flat Earth theory and other pseudo-scientific "theories"
-The existence of a "Deep State" in our government
Still not totally sure about:
-Aliens (I'm pretty sure they haven't visited this planet but at the same time I'm also pretty sure they exist. I also can't decide one way or the
other if intelligent life exists off this planet)
-Ghosts (I feel like most ghost sightings are misunderstood electrical phenomena, but there are things I can't explain and science doesn't know
-Technology suppression (this is a conspiracy that I feel is probably true for business reasons but gets blown out of proportion by involving the NWO
or Deep State)
-Politicians are inherently corrupt (this could go into the unbelievable section but you just never know; though politicians are human and it is just
ridiculous to assume that all of them are out to get us or only want to enrich themselves. There are also WAY too many corrupt ones to believe they
are all operating in our best interests too).

AM: Craziest thing you did when you WEREN’T high?
KS: In 2004, I was home on leave from the Army and went over to a friend's house. We went and tailgated for the Ravens vs Steelers game where Jamal
Lewis was supposed to break the rushing record. However, we didn't have tickets and were intent on getting scalped tickets. The problem was that we
only had $200 between the two of us, which was enough for just one ticket.
Every scalper we talked to would only sell us one for $200 until we talked to these two white guys who were willing to sell us two for $200. We bought
them, took them to the ticket counter, and were told they were fake. My buddy was PISSED. At first we tried to find the two dudes who sold us the fake
tickets, but they were long gone. So he said that we were getting into that game anyways. I put up no arguments, and we started casing the stadium
looking for a way in.
All around the stadium were anti-scaling bars (a fence where you can't stick your feet to climb up), but luckily my buddy played baseball and I was in
the Army so we were skinny enough to fit between them. Eventually we saw a spot where the main street was blocked off by these two big tents and there
was no foot traffic there currently. On the other side of the fence was the walkway going up to the next levels which blocked the view from the
My buddy immediately darts over, steps up onto the bottom rung of the bars then squeezes through them and proceeds to start walking up the walkway.
Right behind him, I follow and do the same and quickly join him. We walked straight up to the standing area of the stadium on the top floor and
watched the game so no ushers asked to see our tickets. The Ravens won, but Jamal didn't break the record. Craziest moment of my life though.
Krazy is a 33 year old millennial and Army veteran who now works as a network administrator. Live music is one of his favorite pastimes and he
feels like everyone should go to a live concert of their favorite genre at least once to feel the energy and excitement of a crowd of people all
enjoying the same thing. Also, believe it or not he doesn't like to include politics in his day-to-day life and generally use the internet (including
ATS) as an outlet to purge his frustrations with it. He actively tells people at parties that the two biggest party fouls you can make are 1)
discussing religion and 2) discussing politics.
Besides live music, his other hobbies are video games notably RPGs and fighting games, but he plays other genres too; driving down backroads and
looking at the scenery; anime; he dabbles in playing the Mandolin; lately he's been cruising Reddit sub forums where he can laugh at idiotic stuff
people post on Facebook and other social media location; and finally playing with the best dog in the world, his Black and White Cocker Spaniel
I dont know about you but I think I got a contact high and I'm a bit ravenous right now. The myth of the dopey stoner has been put to bed, our guest
said all kinds of smart and funny stuff, however most of it went over my head because I was drunk.
Krazy, thanks for playing along today, I'd definitely break into a major sporting event with you, without you even asking. Your parting gifts today
are total consciousness on your deathbed and a rug. Until next time.
