What Is ‘420’ And Where Did It Come From?
It is probably hard to find a marijuana user who does not consider 420 to be a sacred time and date. But it is certainly more difficult to find anyone who has a certain answer of what 420 means and where its use originated.
Sure there are plenty of people who are positive that they know this information, but if you ask 5 people the same question, you are likely to get 5 different 100% positive responses—there are just too many 420 truths floating around.
All right— lots of folks seem to think that 420 was used as police code for “marijuana smoking in progress”. Guess what—that’s not it. 4/20 is also not the death anniversary of Bob Marley or Jimi Hendrix, but it is the birthday of one evil S.O.B.—I’ll give you a hint, his name rhymes with Shitler. The use of the term 420, 4/20, or 4:20 began in the early 1970’s in the town of San Rafael, California.
There was a group of 5 San Rafael high school students who called themselves the “Waldo’s”. The nickname came from their favorite hangout spot, a wall nearby the high school. The Waldo’s heard of a marijuana crop that was hidden in the nearby San Reyes peninsula and they agreed to meet at a statue of Louis Pasteur near the school to seek out the buds. The group would meet week after week in the same spot at the same time, they would pile into their car and smoke joint after joint on their way to search for the mystical marijuana crop.
Originally, the group would say “420-Louis” as their code as their code to schedule a meeting. Eventually, they dropped the “Louis” because they found themselves using the term “420” to describe anything marijuana related.

Trudeau Calls Out Friends star Mathew Perry
Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has challenged Friends star Matthew Perry to a rematch of a fight the pair had while attending school together.
Perry revealed the pair got into a scuffle at their Ottawa elementary school years ago – while Trudeau’s father was serving as prime minister – claiming he and another classmate “beat up” their peer.
After a couple of weeks of silence, Trudeau has responded to the actor’s story with a simple challenge of a rematch because, after all, “who hasn’t wanted to punch Chandler in the face?”
The proposition sent people into an excited frenzy as they considered the possibility of witnessing a fist fight between the two famous Canadians.
The Friends star had recalled the previous incident at Rockcliffe Park elementary school was sparked by “pure jealousy”, in an interview on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show last month.
He said: “I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren’t, so it was pure jealousy.”
“I’m not bragging about this, this is terrible. I was a stupid kid.
“I didn’t want to beat him up. In fact, at one point, I think I tried to turn it into love play,” he joked.

WESTJET has nothing on KULULA AIRLINES.
Kulula is a low-cost South-African airline that doesn't take itself too seriously. Check out their new livery! And get a kick out of the comments at the end of the photos.
Notice the labeling on the planes.
WHAT A PITY KULULA DOESN'T FLY INTERNATIONALLY
-- WE SHOULD SUPPORT THEM IF ONLY FOR THEIR HUMOUR:
On a Kulula flight , (there is no assigned seating, you just sit where you want), passengers were apparently having a hard time choosing, when a flight attendant announced,
"People, people , we're not picking out furniture here, find a seat and get in it!"
On another flight with a very "senior" flight attendant crew, the pilot said,
"Ladies and gentlemen, we've reached cruising altitude and will be turning down the cabin lights. This is for your comfort and to enhance the appearance of your flight attendants."
On landing , the stewardess said,
"Please be sure to take all of your belongings. If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have."
" There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane."
" Thank you for flying Kulula . We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride."
As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Durban Airport, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker:
"Whoa, big fella. WHOA!"
After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in the Karoo, a flight attendant on a flight announced, "Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because, after a landing like that, sure as heck everything has shifted."
From a Kulula employee:
"Welcome aboard Kulula 27 1 to Port Elizabeth. To operate your seat belt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seat belt; and, if you don't know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out in public unsupervised."
" In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child trave l ling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with more than one small child, pick your favo u rite."
" Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but we'll try to have them fixed before we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Kulula Airlines."
" Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments."
" As you exit the plane , make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses."
And from the pilot during his welcome message:
"Kulula Airlines is pleased to announce that we have some of the best flight attendants in the industry. Unfortunately, none of them are on this flight!"
Heard on Kulula 255 just after a very hard landing in Cape Town:
The flight attendant came on the intercom and said,
"That was quite a bump and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight attendant's fault, it was the asphalt."
Overheard on a Kulula flight into Cape Town, on a particularly windy and bumpy day: During the final approach, the Captain really had to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant said,
"Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to The Mother City. Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!"
Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: "We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal."
An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and give them a "Thanks for flying our airline". He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment.
Finally everyone had got off except for a little old lady walking with a cane. She said, "Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?"
"Why, no Ma'am," said the pilot. "What is it?"
The little old lady said, "Did we land, or were we shot down?"
