On the 4th month and 20th day of the year, college campuses, city squares, and urban parks were alight with the smoke of a thousand jazz cigarettes in a defiant display of stoner solidarity. In the meantime, about one in every five people were seeing colours when they said your name, or felt cold when hearing certain sounds, or thought the number 9 was a jerk.

Moral of the story? Who needs 4/20 when you've got synesthesia!
