The wider term 420 carries much larger common usages.
Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.
It’s far too complex, scary and difficult for mere mortals – so let’s bridge the gap by asking both men and women what doesn’t work when it comes to online dating Dating has gone digital.
Ironically enough, if you could take the best of those women and the best of those men, and place them in a big room where they could sit at a table and ask each other questions in person – you’d probably have 4 or 5 new match-ups by the end of the night. All they have to do is get online every day, sitting on their princess throne and file through the dozens or more profiles of men who have messaged them throughout the day.
The problem with online dating is that you can’t see the person’s face when they’re telling you about themselves. I think it’s hard for guys to comprehend the world of online dating from a woman’s perspective. They then flippantly toss out all of those well thought out, carefully crafted messages from most of those poor schmucks, and then they log onto their Facebook accounts to complain to their girlfriends that there are no “good men” left in the world.
Use of the code word then spread throughout California and eventually made the pages of High Times, ultimately bringing 420 fever to new heights and making it the favorite time of day for stoners all across the globe.
Although in the afternoon remains a sacred time for most users of marijuana.In the early 1970s a small group of hippie stoners at San Rafael High School in northern California used to meet at a designated location every day at p.m. They did this so regularly that among members of the group — who called themselves "the Waldos" — the expression "420" became a euphemism for "time to light up." The catchphrase spread beyond their immediate circle, beyond the high school they attended and ultimately beyond California, so that within a decade or two pot smokers were using it across the country, and indeed the world over. A Google search on the paired terms "420" and "marijuana" brings up roughly 20 million results, including a link to the website of editor Rob Griffin.Griffin says the Waldos version isn't entirely accurate.(pronounced "four-twenty") — is a universal, unofficial symbol for the use and enjoyment of marijuana.As a matter of fact, 4/20 (April 20) has come to be known in certain circles as "Marijuana Appreciation Day," or, simply, "Weed Day."Notwithstanding the many and various urban legends that have grown up around the meaning of "420" and its connection with marijuana, the true story behind it is surprisingly prosaic. Although the 420 phenomenon truly infiltrated mainstream culture within the last decade, the earliest known usage of the phrase related to its current meaning? Now we know to be first known usage of the number in relation to marijuana culture is credited to a group of high school students known as “The Waldos” in San Rafael, CA in 1971.
