2023.06.04 14:57 sonofabutch June 4, 1923: Jockey Frank Hayes wins the only horse race of his career... posthumously. Just after his horse crosses the finish line, he tumbles dead from the saddle!

Frank Hayes -- who, according to some sources was 22 years old, and others 35 years old -- would win his first and only race in his tragic ride aboard a horse named Sweet Kiss... a horse that would later come to be known by the macabre nickname "Sweet Kiss of Death"!
The photo shows Hayes aboard Sweet Kiss during the steeplechase race at Belmont Park! The amazing photo is in the collection of the Keeneland Library, which has an extensive archive of materials related to horse racing.
“The fact that we have a photograph of Hayes on Sweet Kiss mid-jump that day is pretty incredible as the photographers of that period for which we are the repository of record did not specialize in steeplechase coverage.” -- Roda Ferraro, head librarian of Keeneland Library
Sweet Kiss won the steeplechase by either a head, according to some sources, or a length, according to others, over the favorite, Gimme. Sources also differ on whether Sweet Kiss was a 20-1 underdog, or the second favorite at 5-1.
But all agree that after the horse crossed the finish line, Hayes fell from the saddle.
The track doctor ran over to examine Hayes and pronounced him dead on the spot. But it's unknown if he died during or just after the race. It was obvious he was alive when the horse jumped the final fence, but it's unknown if he died during the race, or if he died after he tumbled from the saddle.
Hayes was valiantly but weakly tugging at the bridle as death gripped his heart and the mists swam before his eyes. Sweet Kiss cantered 100 yards further and stopped. The jockey crumpled in the saddle, slipped slowly over his mount's sides, fell face downward and lay still. -- The Auburn Citizen
Newspapers of the day had a field day with their stories. “The grim reaper paid a sensational visit to the Belmont Park track yesterday," the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported.
The day before the race, a replacement jockey was needed. Hayes, a stablehand who had always been asking to be a jockey, was told he could ride Sweet Kiss -- if he lost 12 pounds in 24 hours to get under the maximum weight of 130 pounds.
“This morning he spent several hours on the road, jogging off surplus weight. He strove and sweated and denied himself water and when he climbed into the saddle at post time he was weak and tired.” -- The Buffalo Morning Express
Hayes made the weight, but the stress took its toll. He was buried in his riding silks.
It was Hayes's first, and obviously last, race. But supposedly it also was the last race for Sweet Kiss, who was nicknamed "Sweet Kiss of Death." In any event, the win was reportedly the only one in the career of both the jockey and the horse.

2023.06.04 14:57 PlasticBread221 My uncle God who told divine dad jokes

The first time I met my uncle God, I was a baby. Mom stopped in the kitchen for a quick nibble on our way to the nursery, and there he was in all his glory. He said, 'Hi baby, do you want to hear a dad joke?' Naturally, I did. I was too young at the time to remember the joke but I know for sure it was very funny, because I fell in love with uncle God's jokes and would be seeking them out for the rest of our time together.
Years passed by until one day, I had a baby of my own. It was a boy, and he was born right as uncle God was about to launch into one of his jokes. My son was truly blessed. This joke, unlike the first one, I shall never forget:
'Do you know what the buffalo said to his son when he was leaving for college?'
(My baby and I were speechless as we didn't know.)
'He said, 'Bison!''
There was a moment of silent awe. Eventually, it was broken by my son, as he spelled out: K.I.L.M.E.
And he jumped from my arms and walked out of the nursery, never to be seen again.
(Later I convinced my mom to listen to the joke. Like me, she thought it was very funny.)
This episode, understandably, made my uncle very self-conscious. When he became the leader, he was hesitant to use his new powers to share his dad jokes with the whole family at once. He was afraid his killer jokes would have no survivors. But as he got old, I managed to convince him to go out with a bang, so to say.
As I held my second newborn son in my arms, we held our breaths in the expectation of uncle God's parting words. They went like this:
'Why can't we play hide-and-seek with mountains? -- Because they peak!'
-- In the loving memory of God Sucato

They learned how to make creamy cashew-based mozzarella and nut-free, meltable vegan cheese using ingredients readily available at their local grocery store. With a little bit of practice, their vegan cheese game was on point!
To jazz up their pizza nights even further, I shared some unique topping combinations, like BBQ jackfruit and caramelized onions, Mediterranean-inspired pesto and sun-dried tomatoes, and buffalo cauliflower with vegan ranch dressing. Alex and Taylor's taste buds were in heaven as they discovered a whole new world of plant-based pizza possibilities.

2023.06.04 14:24 JoshAsdvgi The Making of a Great Warrior

The Making of a Great Warrior

The Making of a Great Warrior

There once was a Potawatomi man who had a large family.
One of his sons, Waoniska, was old enough to fast but had not yet done so.
He said to the boy, "Why don't you fast?"
But Waoniska refused to fast, and wandered off to be with the other boys.
If they stayed out after it got dark, he would just stay in the woods instead of going home because he was afraid that his father would insist that he fast. Rather than face his father, he just drifted away and no longer lived at home.
Wherever he went, it always seemed that people talked about fasting, and whenever this happened Waoniska would just leave and go on to the next place.
He travelled to a distant village and stayed there overnight, and as soon as his host got up, the man insisted that his children fast.
It was that way everywhere he went and among every tribe he visited.
He wandered from place to place and it was always the same.
With so much wandering, he got lost, and he eventually grew from a boy into a young man. After much wandering and thinking, he went back to his own tribe.
There, all the young boys fasted, and no one would associate with him because of his reputation for not having fasted.
No one liked him or would have anything to do with him.
Since no one would ask him to go hunting and he had no one to help him take care of himself, he dressed in rags and old clothes that he found and live off of a small amount of corn he could get from someone’s field.
He felt so sad and alone that he decided to go back to his parents and try to live the life that they had taught him.
The next morning he started his fast and made his way back to his parents’ village.
When he got near their house, the dogs began to bark and one of his little brothers came out and then ran to tell his parents that Waoniska had come back.
As Waoniska went in, his father said, "I see by the charcoal on your face that you are fasting. Has a spirit told you to fast?" Waoniska said nothing.
In the morning, he continued his fast.
He blackened his face and ate nothing.
Every morning after that he fasted.
Once he felt he was ready, he took his father's bow and arrow and started off hunting, continuing his fast.
At night when he came home he brought a willow stick as tall as he was and hung it up in the wigwam.
His father asked what he was going to do with the stick, but Waoniska did not answer.
The next morning, he charred the stick in the fire and then set it aside.
He picked up his father's bow and arrow again and his father said, "Don't take those."
But his mother said, "Leave him alone: he is doing the right thing now," and she made him a pair of moccasins to wear hunting.
Waoniska’s mother was right.
From then on, he fasted regularly and hunted and brought home meat for the family.
Some time later, an unsuccessful war party returned to the village.
They asked Waoniska to go back with them and lead them because they thought he had special powers.
His father told him he was not ready to lead a war party, but Waoniska prepared to go.
The war party started out, and Waoniska carried only his blanket: he did not take bow and arrows or even a knife.
As they went along, they killed some buffaloes and Waoniska took one of the buffalo bladders and blew it up and dried it and painted it red.
Then he put it on his head.
His friends thought this was a little odd, and asked him where his weapons were.
Waoniska said nothing, but got a piece of wood and carved himself a war club out of it.
He practiced throwing it and his friends also thought this was a little strange.
Waoniska told them to stop asking questions, and the older men in the war party agreed, saying that some powerful spirit must be guiding him.
After a while, they came to a large enemy encampment.
They saw that they were easily outnumbered, and many felt they should go back without fighting.
Their leader wanted to turn back but Waoniska said, “I am not supposed to be the leader, but I will lead you.”
And he painted his buffalo bladder and his war club red.
He said, “I have fasted many years and have been given power by a spirit.
Obey me and stay here, and I will go through the enemy camp and make those people senseless.
Then you can all follow me in.” They all agreed to this plan.
The next morning, Waoniska threw his clothes away and painted himself red.
He also told all of the other members of the war party to do the same.
As they drew close to the enemy camp, Waoniska called on the spirits who had come to him when he was fasting and asked for their help.
He told the warriors to walk in a straight line and look only at him.
He also told them to make whatever noises he made.
As they began, Waoniska made a huge noise that sounded like "Yaw, Yaw."
All of the other warriors did the same.
The people in the camp were startled and came out to see what it was.
As they saw Waoniska, they dropped to the ground and couldn’t move.
Waoniska’s small war party defeated them all.
After that, Waoniska became an important leader of his people.

2023.06.04 13:57 JoshAsdvgi The Magic Arrows

The Magic Arrows

The Magic Arrows
There was once a young man who wanted to go on a journey.
His mother provided him with sacks of dried meat and pairs of moccasins, but his father said to him:
"Here, my son, are four magic arrows.
When you are in need, shoot one of them!"
The young man went forth alone, and hunted in the forest for many days.
Usually he was successful, but a day came when he was hungry and could not find meat. Then he sent forth one of the magic arrows, and at the end of the day there lay a fat Bear with the arrow in his side.
The hunter cut out the tongue for his meal, and of the body of the Bear he made a thank-offering to the Great Mystery.
Again he was in need, and again in the morning he shot a magic arrow, and at nightfall beside his camp-fire he found an Elk lying with the arrow in his heart.
Once more he ate the tongue and offered up the body as a sacrifice.
The third time he killed a Moose with his arrow, and the fourth time a Buffalo.
After the fourth arrow had been spent, the young man came one day out of the forest, and before him there lay a great circular village of skin lodges.
At one side, and some little way from the rest of the people, he noticed a small and poor tent where an old couple lived all alone.
At the edge of the wood he took off his clothes and hid them in a hollow tree.
Then, touching the top of his head with his staff, he turned himself into a little ragged boy and went toward the poor tent.
The old woman saw him coming, and said to her old man: "Old man, let us keep this little boy for our own!
He seems to be a fine, bright-eyed little fellow, and we are all alone."
"What are you thinking of, old woman?" grumbled the old man.
"We can hardly keep ourselves, and yet you talk of taking in a ragged little scamp from nobody knows where!"
In the meantime the boy had come quite near, and the old wife beckoned to him to enter the lodge.
"Sit down, my grandson, sit down!" she said, kindly; and, in spite of the old man's black looks, she handed him a small dish of parched corn, which was all the food they had.
The boy ate and stayed on.
By and by he said to the old woman: "Grandmother, I should like to have grandfather make me some arrows!"
"You hear, my old man?" said she. "It will be very well for you to make some little arrows for the boy."
"And why should I make arrows for a strange little ragged boy?" grumbled the old man.
However, he made two or three, and the boy went hunting.
In a short time he returned with several small birds.
The old woman took them and pulled off the feathers, thanking him and praising him as she did so.
She quickly made the little birds into soup, of which the old man ate gladly, and with the soft feathers she stuffed a small pillow.
"You have done well, my grandson!" he said; for they were really very poor.
Not long after, the boy said to his adopted grandmother: "Grandmother, when you see me at the edge of the wood yonder, you must call out: 'A Bear! there goes a Bear!' "
This she did, and the boy again sent forth one of the magic arrows, which he had taken from the body of his game and kept by him.
No sooner had he shot, than he saw the same Bear that he had offered up, lying before him with the arrow in his side!
Now there was great rejoicing in the lodge of the poor old couple.
While they were out skinning the Bear and cutting the meat in thin strips to dry, the boy sat alone in the lodge.
In the pot on the fire was the Bear's tongue, which he wanted for himself.
All at once a young girl stood in the doorway.
She drew her robe modestly before her face as she said in a low voice:
"I come to borrow the mortar of your grandmother!"
The boy gave her the mortar, and also a piece of the tongue which he had cooked, and she went away.
When all of the Bear meat was gone, the boy sent forth a second arrow and killed an Elk, and with the third and fourth he shot the Moose and the Buffalo as before, each time recovering his arrow.
Soon after, he heard that the people of the large village were in trouble.
A great Red Eagle, it was said, flew over the village every day at dawn, and the people believed that it was a bird of evil omen, for they no longer had any success in hunting.
None of their braves had been able to shoot the Eagle, and the chief had offered his only daughter in marriage to the man who should kill it.
When the boy heard this, he went out early the next morning and lay in wait for the Red Eagle.
At the touch of his magic arrow, it fell at his feet, and the boy pulled out his arrow and went home without speaking to any one.
But the thankful people followed him to the poor little lodge, and when they had found him, they brought the chief's beautiful daughter to be his wife.
Lo, she was the girl who had come to borow his grandmother's mortar!
Then he went back to the hollow tree where his clothes were hidden, and came back a handsome young man, richly dressed for his wedding.

My 2nd to last cigar before emigrating
As I’m moving to New Zealand very soon I’m enjoying the 2nd to last cigar in my humidor paired with a South African milk tart and a Kentucky Buffalo Trace Bourbon.
I rate the EP Carillo La Historia E-III above the pledge even though its stronger. The Pledge has a little bit more spice than I prefer but the Encore is my favourite of the EPC Trinity.
But look at that tooth.. JUST LOOK AT IT! The last of a box I got about 2 years ago.

2023.06.04 13:18 dairiya [Claim]: The Kingdom of Asmanakashra

[Claim Information at the Bottom]
Centuries Since Liberation

The Kingdom of Asmanakashra

On a cool summer evening, a gathering of children formed a semicircle around the amber fire, eyes filled with a mix of wonder and excitement. Having entered their 10th year, the boys, girls, and ashten of Jorchiktele were finally old enough to hear the history of their kingdom, including its less savory aspects. As the young ones began to settle around her hearth, the high priestess Ajarma smiled to herself. The story of liberation was her favorite tale to sing. Once everyone was accounted for, her eyes widened as she became animated and her bracelets of iron, copper, and stone jangled together to form their rhythmic clangor. Performing the dance passed down for generations, the priestess began to sing Asmanakashra’s epic of liberation.
“Long ago we worked the mines,”
“Forced to toil akin to beasts.”
“Ancestors from far and wide brought in chains,”
“Unity under the crack of whips.”
“Spirits remained unbroken,”
“Even as bodies collapsed.”
“As we worked we learned,”
“Of gifts placed by the Gods.”
“As we dug deeper and deeper,”
“The bountiful mountains sheltered us.”
“One day the lowland devils,”
“Grew too weak to whip us.”
“Metal in hand we caved their skulls,”
“A people finally freed.”
“Now their bones pave our mountain paths,”
“And their blood grows our wine.”
“We honor our sacred freedom,”
“Praise the Mountains, the King, and the Mines!”
Her performance caused a raucous response from the young audience, who answered the end of her sacred tale with a chorus of oaths:
“Praise the Mountains, the King, and the Mines! Praise the Mountains, the King, and the Mines! Praise the Mountains, the King, and the Mines!”


King Damiharthro of Anagekh, his high priestess Ajarma and an assortment of porters were nearing the final stop of their annual tour of the kingdom. It was nearing the end of the harvest season, and chilled weather was sure to follow. In his youth, King Damiharthro had enjoyed traversing the beautiful hills surrounding his village, but as old age made his body weary even simple tasks like riding his horse were becoming difficult. Even as the evening sun warmed the hillsides and colored his white wool shawl, Damiharthro felt a chill deep in his bones. To age truly is a curse, he thought to himself. Thankfully, this was the last stop on his final tour as king, after which he could finally rest his weary bones.
Damiharthro and his entourage crested a small ridge, and on the other side they found their destination. The village of Keshthrute sat nestled between the ridge and the imposing base of a mountain, with a small brook bubbling through the village’s center. Southwest of Keshthrute and at the intersection of ridge and stoneface was the mine that had given Keshthrute its name. Before liberation, the Keshthrute mine had exported copper far abroad, feeding the war machines of empires far from these sacred lands. After liberation, Keshthrute followed the example of her fellow mine-clans and continued operations, albeit with less demand and under significantly better conditions. After all, the Gods did not fill their mountain homes with metal so it could go unused. Outside Keshthrute’s low stone wall, a man in traditional earth tone wool greeted Damiharthro and his assistants. The man bowed to his king, before declaring,
“I am Nakabno of Keshthrute, the beto of the Keshthrute mine-clan. May your ground be stable.”
“May your ground be stable.” King Damiharthro replied. “Let the sanctification ritual begin.”
Thereafter, the priestess Ajarma led the procession. First they visited Keshthrute’s village shrine at the center of the town square, a squat stone table with a chunk of copper ore embellished at the center of the table’s surface. Upon hearing her sacred chants, the townsfolk surrounding the party cheered. Then they visited the highest point in town, where Ajarma offered her prayers to the herders. At this time of year, many of the shepherds had already migrated east for warmer weather, so prayers at Keshthrute’s highest point were meant to carry across the wind and find their intended target. Next Ajarma arrived at the town’s vineyard. Keshthrute was too high in elevation for the best wine production, but the small grapes received Ajarma’s blessing nonetheless. By this point Damiharthro was fighting off the desire to fall asleep while still riding his horse, but he knew the most important part of the ritual still had yet to be conducted.
Ajarma, Damiharthro, and Nakabno and the other members of the procession finally arrived at the mine just as the sun was sinking beneath the mountain. Ajarma pulled out the sacred mashthra, a thin and slightly concave plate of iron. After a moment, she took her wooden staff and struck the face of the mashthra. The metallic clang reverberated off the mountain face, and the sound resonated well into the ravines beyond. For a moment there was silence, as Ajarma used her mythic intuition to interpret the sound of wood striking metal. Having interpreted the echos, Ajarma told the assembly,
“The Gods favor Keshthrute, but be warned as this year’s winter will be severe. In spring this chill will haunt you, do not plant until later in the season.”
And with that, the augury and sanctification were over. Damiharthro privately had many reservations about the auguries, as he knew they were not always correct. Such was the fickle will of the Gods he supposed.
Before leaving, Nakabno approached Damiharthro with a serene smile on his face. “May your ground be stable, King Damiharthro of Anagekh.”
“And may your ground be stable, Nakabno of Keshthrute. I believe I shall see you this winter?”
“As is my duty,” Nakabno replied.

Lord of the Mine-Clans

Nakabno rode through the chilled winter night as snow quietly settled around him. In Keshthrute snow storms were larger and more frequent, but down here the falling flakes maintained their blissful serenity without a hint of danger. He had always enjoyed the snow, but he certainly would not mind the more mild winters of Jorchiktele. Just as this thought crossed his mind, the fires of the capitol became visible through the darkness. Thankfully he would not have to spend another night camped along the mountain paths, and he would arrive on time if only barely. An extra day’s delay might not have hurt his chances, but it is always difficult to discern what will contribute to the other betya’s considerations.
Jorchiktele had always been an imposing city, situated between two rivers and with mountains to its north and south. The most prominent hill is the eponymous Jorchiktele, which towers over the settlement from the southwest. From the north and the west, the Mitele and Atuare rivers come together to form the Ishtene River, and wheat fields blanket the small valley. When the basin along the Ishtene gives way to the gradually increasing face of Jorchiktele, the wheat fields transform into terraces, although these earthworks do not extend more than two-hundred feet above their lowland counterparts. Above the terraces come squat clay houses, where the majority of Jorchiktele’s people lived. These abodes had a single doorway in and out, and were constructed from the clay sediments harvested in the basin below. Above the clay homes are the stone houses of the merchants and landowners. While they have the influence to live in larger homes of polished sandstone, they pale in comparison to the estates granted to betya. Near the summit of Jorchiktele, these complexes had multiple levels and are built out of the finest stone in the region. They are often accented with gold and copper, two ores long associated with the nobility. Just beneath the final summit are two perfectly square buildings, cast in an amber hue as the flames of a thousand torches lick the polished granite surfaces. Even from this distance, Nakabno could see the metallic iconography catching in the light of the flames, a symbol of authority as resolute as the ground beneath his feet. Even after having visited multiple times, Nakabno was in awe riding towards Asmanakasha’s largest settlement. He hoped that he would soon be able to call it home.
Upon entering the city itself, an attendant led Nakabno to his local estate. As a beto Nakabno was entitled to stay in the luxurious structure while he was visiting the capitol, which far outshone his living quarters back in Keshthrute. The dimensions of his estate, given its position near the summit of the mountain, should have been impossible. Much like the other buildings of Jorchiktele, Nakabno’s temporary abode was partially built into the mountainside, sitting atop a manufactured plot of level ground. Nakabno always privately wondered if these would slide down the mountain-face, but he did not dare question his countrymen’s craftsmanship. Despite these concerns Nakabno had a wonderful night’s sleep, and around noon donned his ceremonial woolen robes to ascend the cobblestone path towards the Royal Palace.
After being ushered in by royal attendants, Nakabno found himself at the center of the palatial complex. The sturdy roof that covered the majority of the building gave way to an open circular courtyard, dotted with fire pits to keep the participants warm in the winter air. Alongside the lack of roofing, the polished granite floors of the palace were replaced with the bare earth of the mountain. Arranged in a circle were a collection of wooden seats and a single floor mat, all of which were empty when Nakabno had arrived. Early once again, that must count for something, he thought to himself.
As noon drew closer, the other betya entered the courtyard. Following them was Ajarma, the priestess of Jorchiktele, and finally King Damiharthro of Anagekh. In the few months since Nakabno had last seen the aged King, his eyes had become even more sunken, and his arms looked like branches in the depths of winter. He had already shed the royal white robes, but atop his head he still wore the Royal Crown. The King waddled to his rightful place on the floor mat, and Ajarma helped him take his seat. Despite his decrepit appearance, King Damiharthro wore a proud smile. After all, his burdens in life were about to be lightened at last.
Once everyone had arrived, Ajarma stepped into the center of the circle. Striking her mashthra and listening to it’s holy resonance, Ajarma announced with a thundering voice,
“The Gods have willed the selection of our next King, deliberation has begun!”
With this announcement, the many betya took their opportunities to speak during their allotted time. Each of these men had been elected in a similar process by their Mine-Clans, whether due to their work ethic, personal charisma, or raw talent when it came to mining and smelting. In addition to these qualities, the men were now to be judged by their administrative careers as well. King Damiharthro heard the arguments of the betya with increasing disinterest, it was clear this long process was wearing out the already weak King. Nonetheless, he remained awake long enough to hear all of the betya make their pitches, after which the debates began.
It was now up to the representatives to pick the leader they would rally behind through a voting process. The new King would require all other members to vote for him, so as could be imagined the selection process could last days or even weeks. Before Nakabno got a second opportunity to speak, the winter sun had already set, signaling the end of the day’s discussions. The betya left the courtyard and headed to their respective manors for the night, but as they say politics do not sleep. Nakabno spent the night hosting a grand celebration for his fellow betya, hoping that his own personal charisma would be enough to secure his place as the King of Asmanakashra.
Four days after deliberation had begun, Nakabno's plan had paid off. Upon entering the courtyard, everyone in attendance agreed to vote for their pleasant host. King Damiharthro, having seen Nakabno’s success only months prior, agreed with the verdict. After the striking of the mashthra, Ajarma carefully removed the Royal Crown from Damiharthro’s head and placed it on Nakabno’s. This artifact had been passed between kings for centuries, a golden ring studded with limestone, sandstone, and granite on the band. At the center of the forehead, the brand dipped towards the nose, the central bridge adorned with copper and iron stones. The Royal Crown fit Nakabno perfectly, and a wide smile spread across his face.
“Hail King Nakabno of Keshthrute!” shouted Ajarma.
“Hail! Hail! Hail!” came a chorus of voices.
Once the ceremony was completed, Damiharthro pulled King Nakabno aside.
“You know my liege, the title of King is a heavy burden to bear. When I was first chosen decades ago the title had been perfunctory, and my role mattered very little in the grand scheme of the Kingdom. But things are changing. In the past few years, there have been reports of other kingdoms ascending, even those who once yoked us in chains. This has the potential to be an unstable time, King Nakabno, and all I ask is that you rule well.”
“Thank you for this advice, Damiharthro of Anagekh. May your ground be stable.”
“May your ground be stable, King Nakabno of Keshthrute.”

2023.06.04 10:51 ShureBro Orange: OR15 or Rocker 15 Terror?

Hi guys, I’m looking for a second tube amp to complement my Fender BJ. Want a British sounding amp with drive. 99% of the time it will be used at home, maybe for band practises. I am a gigging musician but I don’t bother bringing my amp usually, as most venues will have either a Vox, Marshall or Orange that I can make do with.
So this amp will be used at home and at the studio for stoner and progressive stuff (think Elder, King Buffalo, Motorpsycho). I have played Orange Rockerverbs a lot live and love them, however they are obviously way too high wattage for my needs.
I’ve narrowed down my choices to the Rocker 15 Terror and the OR15. Which one of these do you think will fit my needs best? Unfortunately I won’t be able to try both of these.
Also have heard a lot of good things about the Harley Benton G212 Celestion V30 cabs and I’m thinking about picking one up, anyone with any experience with these?
I’ve also checked out the Marshall SV20H and while it certainly ticks the boxes for British drive, I’m not sure it can quite deliver the classic low end stoner-thing that orange is known for.
