As far as H.I.M is concerned, hope you enjoy it - from what I can remember, it's good solid goth rock isn't it?
Not because I wanted underage drinkers/smokers, but more worried about abuse.

ehhh, Ben, you do work in an off license with one of the most damaging drugs known to man. The reason we feel that way the next morning is because we are poisoning ourselves, its toxic and reasonbly easy to OD on.
Now before people go mental, I have no problem with the odd drink now and again, or was that again right now It's just odd the perception that all banned substances are bad
Pre-coded phone links (panic buttons), by then it's all inside and 30 seconds is a long time.

If people are going to be addicted to smack, we can at least try and help them avoid shooting up with ajax or whatever it is dealers mix it with to bulk up the volume. That said, if you read Naked Lunch by William Burroughs, (who was a junkie for decades) at the end he talks about the 'global drug epidemic' and points out that in the fifties in britain there was a register for junkies, who went to their gp to get the prescription. because it was never mixed with anything and the amount was always seet, there was very little problem with addictions getting worse. The level of addicts in the country remained about stable - new cases were mainly due to people who had had morphine as a pain killer. Then they scrapped that and classified it, and people had to start to buy it illicitly, and things got out of hand.
As was proved in prohibition era U.S. trying to stop people from getting drunk/stoned/whatever is only going to push it underground and put money into the hands of organised crime.
Hello, good morning everyone. Beautiful day to be using linux today, aint it?
