Two news stories caught my ear today, both of which made me once again question the sanity of some of the idiots I’m forced to share this planet with.
First up was a revelation that Britain’s cocaine, heroin and so on is at an all time low purity level, often times as low as 20% actual drugs and 80% “filler”. This can be anything from talcum to rat poison to ground glass. You know something? I don’t care.
Much as I believe in a person’s right to do what they want as long as it’s behind closed doors and doesn’t affect anyone else, I’m still rather anti-drugs. Whatever your legal stance on it, class A drugs are addictive and potentially deadly at the best of times. I’ve heard of enough cases of children being left to fend for themselves while parents tend to their smack addiction to know that drugs are pretty much a filthy thing that should be expunged from society.
The fact that people are complaining that their additive brain-destroying chemical is being mixed with something that might make their tummy bleed really is madness.
Got a problem with it? Don’t bloody use drugs, then you fucking idiot. It’s pretty simple. But then, anyone daft enough to snort Columbian marching powder for a hobby probably isn’t intelligent enough to see that.
OK, rant number two: some numpty somewhere (I think the US, but I only caught the end of the story on the radio) has announced that on September 11th they’re going to broadcast themselves burning the Koran. Well, that’s just great. Why not just insult a billionÂ MuslimsÂ just to protest the actions of a couple of dozen. Who are already dead.
The high command in Afghanistan have begged them not to do it as the repercussions against troops posted there could be horrendous.
Seriously, does nobody think about the consequences of their actions any more?
