It's Professor D. Nutt again, DG :O :

(sorry it's a daily fail link).

Professor Nutt seems to have plenty to say nowadays. Wonder why?
"...Wyrde saves oft the man undoomed
if he undaunted be....". (Beowulf).

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths... Beautiful people do not just happen". (Elisabeth Kubler-Ross).

:D Just gotta quote that article Cantata....BRILLIANT.
Cocaine caused the banking crisis, says controversial former drugs tsar
Professor David Nutt said bankers 'took more risks'
He blamed current crisis and 1995 collapse on cocaine
Cocaine fuelled 'excitement and "more" culture' he said

The British banking crisis was caused by bankers taking cocaine, according to the Government's former drugs tsar.
Professor David Nutt, who was sacked in 2009 after saying there was 'not much difference' between the dangers of taking ecstasy and horse riding, said bankers who took cocaine became 'overconfident' and 'took more risks'.
He said cocaine suited their 'culture of excitement and drive and more and more and more' attitude.
The 61-year-old professor added that: 'Bankers use cocaine and got us into this terrible mess. It is a "more" drug,'



^ I love this Nutter.... :cool:
