    Jan 4th Howard challenges Jason to go a month without smoking pot.
    This is the amount of time usually given to get pot out of your system in order to pass a drug test.

    I can tell you this.

    I'm a big guy, but not as big as Jason.

    I smoke a LOT of weed. There is NO WAY he is getting clean in 30 days.

    THC is stored in fat. I went over 100 days and was still failing self administered piss tests before I decided to scrap the really get clean and come up with plan B to pass a potential upcoming drug test.

    I don't listen to the show anymore, it depresses me. So i can't speak to exactly what was said but without a doubt that fat fuck isn't pissing clean in 30 days if she truly smoked as much as he claimed to.

    Maybe if he drinks a lot of water and exercises he can flush it out?

    it doesn't work that way

    it has nothing to do with flushing out.

    Actually, losing weight during the testing or immediate pre-testing period will increase the amount detected in the THC screen. If you're a light smoker and not storing much body fat, you can test clean after a week (or even less) of abstinence. If you're a daily "blunt" smoker, you'll need a full month, and if you're a very overweight daily blunt smoker, you're at the highest end of the spectrum and might not even test clean after just a month, especially if you're simultaneously losing weight.

    If he wants to test clean, he should purchase an OTC test kit for a couple of bucks and test himself at home. For the actual test, you'll want to make sure it isn't your first piss of the morning, or the very beginning or end of the urine stream, and you'll want to drink a lot of water a few hours before so that your piss is light yellow instead of dark yellow...but not so much that you're pissing clear because you'll fail the test for dilluting it...most of those tests regard excessively dilluted urine as a fail. You might want to have a little creatine too, because one of the things that triggers the dillution-based fail is lower-than-normal levels of creatine breadown byproducts.

    And if they do hair follicle testing, you need to get a special shampoo for your head and shave any body hair that could be used instead. That shit goes back 9 months or more. Consider adding competitive swimming as hobby somewhere on your resume.

    Doesn't it depend on what type of test?

    I know a few college buddies that say they've passed their tests yet still :crack:

    Why does he need to pass a drug test to get an internal promotion?

    Promote him to what? He's hit the ceiling. Gary won't go anywhere and Tim won't go either. There's really nowhere up for him to go.

    Why would anybody bother testing Jason for pot when he has discussed his habitual use on the air for literally years. He works in the entertainment/broadcasting industry too; it's not likely he'll be taking a job in a straight profession either. And if he did, you know he'd have a lot more explaining to do about all the stuff he's done and said on the Stern Show over the past decade than he would about his recreational pot smoking.

    I don't buy the whole premise that the pot smoking break and the new suits have anything to do with one another or with the consultant or with Jason's future prospects. I was just discussing the THC testing issue. But to answer your question, Jason would just say that everything spoken on the air on the HSS is semi-scripted and untrue, and he'd easily be able to pass a polygraph on the "untrue" part, at least.

    I think the whole "don't smoke pot challenge" was just an excuse for Howard to:

    !) bust a staffer's balls (but not in a mean way)
    2)kill air time and provide easy content
    3) Burnish his image as a good guy giving his employees constructive advise (how entertaining)

    I loved how Howard vaguely broached the alcohol wagon concept to Richard, who said "I don't think I could do it- I mean, I wouldn't want to." Why the hell do they only let him in the studio once every 6 months? I could listen to Richard talk all day.

    It's not even a comedy show anymore, it's just a clip show hosted by a geriatric guy who gets interrupted by some loud cunt on an ISDN line.

    I don't see what's really left for him to do. What else could he do?

    Howard will never fire Gary. Gary's always gonna be the "exec producer" and will always be Howard's right hand man. Gary just knows too much. He knows where all the skeletons are buried. Howard can't even fire that worthless idiot Benji.

    Feb. 5: Howard announces Robin's "retirement".

    Jason is promoted to glass booth lispy cackling news-reading, show-commenting hen status.

    Or maybe... Gary gets Robin's job and Jason is the new Gary?

    Very interesting idea. Would Gary work out in studio though? When him and Jon were in that week when Robin was away, was he acceptable? Jason could do Gary's job that's for sure... heck, he's doing it now.

    If Robin retires, we know she doesn't have much time left.

    Howard has really become an old unfunny killjoy. Don't smoke pot, don't have more than one or two drinks, don't stay out late, don't eat meat,don't have oral sex, .... he really has become his mother. I can't imagine why anyone under 40 would ever listen to him.
