Advances in language technology:  a specialized translation app.

I’m not up on the latest (in almost any domain), but I recognize the relevant sense of BE break s.o. off as ‘give, share with’, though not with the math ‘numbers, spec. phone number’ as object.

Handsome gentleman farmers is wonderful; every so often, I post here with photos from calendars of near-naked hunky young men purporting to be farmers (as well as calendars of such men who are in fact rowers, firemen, rugby players, cops, and so on). For the month;y viewing pleasure of women and gay men. And now: pot farmers for gay stoners.

Meanwhile, menthol cigarettes and vape juices have a big black market, so why not for black gay stoners?

(Like Zonker, I find the idea of minty fresh marijuana, um, questionable.)
