    or...just heat the pad with a hairdryer, then peel it off. Quickly comes off in one piece so you can re-use it (need 3m spray adhesive or equivalent to glue it back down).

    judging by her eyes, I don't think the first lady got high. On close-up, her eyes were too clear and pupils were too small. I didn't get high the first time I smoked...maybe because the THC hadn't...

    idk, round tails just lend themselves more toward a larger/steeper wave, imo...waves probably weren't that small at the cold water classic.

    yep, if it isn't done just right, it probably won't work.
