Chose Safety, 80% Vegan, and CBD: Weekly Roundup 2/25

The Cultured Warrior #034

Happy Friday everyone!  Apparently 80% is a good enough appeal for The Governator, vegetables don't really help your health, and CBD is on sale!

First, let's run through a quick safety briefing...

Mickey sums this up pretty good in the caption, but I want to remind everyone to choose safety!  Ask yourself these questions ahead of time:

He’ll be back — and apparently better than ever. “My bad cholesterol number is so low that my doctor thought I might be a different person,” wrote Schwarzenegger.
