This little titbit is about to fall off the internet because the site has gone down. So I thought I would repost here to preserve it. The following passage is an excerpt from the book “Beyond The Big Sticks“, published in 2003.

IN 1988, players from Kukerin in the West Australian Wheatbelt acted with unprecedented goodwill when they organised a merger with Dumbleyung, a neighbouring club that had folded. Kukerin was a titan in the West and a peer of the best country footy clubs in Australia. Many Kukerin supporters failed to see why their club, with its storied history, should take on the undistinguished mob down the road. The players’ view was that all footballers need a home.

Drugs Cheaper Than Beer In UK

The drug war has failed so abysmally in England that not only are drugs freely available, they are cheaper than the legal alternative.

A line of cocaine is now as cheap as a pint of beer after the latest alcohol tax rises took effect.

An average pint in Britain has topped £3 following a 4p rise in the budget – making it the same price as a line of cocaine, according to official government figures.

In London the average price of a pint – at £4.06 – is dearer than a hit of heroin.

A line of speed or the cannabis resin for a spliff now costs the same as just two cigarettes, according to separate figures released by the Independent Drug Monitoring Unit, which provides street prices for evidence in courts.

The average price of an ecstasy pill is now £2.91, with some costing as little as £1, while an average hit of heroin is just £3.50.

The charity Drugscope, which has seen a sharp rise in cocaine use, warned it was now cheaper to spend an evening bingeing on cocaine than to spend a night in the pub.

At least “Harm Minimisation” seems to be working. Getting high on Cocaine or Ecstasy is certainly less dangerous than getting a skinful in a UK pub. So if that was the intention, then the UK government should all give themselves a big pat on the back.

Ever listened to Garth Brooks and wanted to kill yourself? You are not alone.

The results of a multiple regression analysis of 49 metropolitan areas show that the greater the airtime devoted to country music, the greater the white suicide rate. The effect is independent of divorce, southernness, poverty, and gun availability.

I would like to see a similar study done for Radiohead though.
