Corner on Coca!

collect nature's godsend medicines while protesting the War on Drugs!

by Ballard Quass, the Drug War Philosopher

April 11, 2023

orner on Coca is more than a fun game: it's a creative new way to protest America's hateful War on Drugs, which has outlawed godsend medicines in violation of Natural Law. Just ask Thomas Jefferson, who rolled over in his grave back in 1987 when the DEA stomped onto his Monticello estate and confiscated his poppy plants!

The game is as easy as stomping down the doors of minorities and poor people or shooting socialists in Central America under the pretense of "fighting drugs." In fact, if you've played the game called Pit, you already know the rules. There are six different sets of cards, each featuring a different godsend of mother nature: cannabis, coca, peyote, poppies, shrooms and ibogaine. (For those who don't know, ibogaine is the dual-purpose African drug that helps folks talk with their ancestors while also curing them of any unwanted addictions!)

Game is in the design phase!

Game available in Spring 2023

Well, it's Summer 2023 now and the game in question has not yet materialized. [sigh]

What happened, you asked? Ask rather what DIDN'T happen. I mean, don't get me started! For I could a tale unfold whose lightest word would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy presumably young blood, make thy two eyes like stars start from their spheres, thy presumably knotted and combined locks to part, and each particular hair to stand on end -- kind of like those what-cha-call-'em quills on the fretful porpentine (whatever that is).

But I'll spare you the blood and guts. Suffice it to say that a poorly conceived and ambiguous Microsoft OneDrive icon on my PC led me to accidentally erase half of my hard drive six months ago. How was I to know that when I deleted files in my OneDrive FOLDER that I was simultaneously deleting the original versions of those files in OTHER folders???

But as Shakespeare was wont to say: omittance is no quittance.

So how about watching this space for another year or so -- say, checking back in July of 2024, inshallah.

I kid you not: the folder "OneDrive" is not to be messed with. You delete a file there and it is history. And could Microsoft help me? No. All the king's horses and all the king's techs could not put my hard drive back together again.
