    Adios Muchachos (for a while)

    Well this is my last shift, and as some of you know, I'm off Wandering at the end of the month, for an indefinite time. I aim to be back about halfway through next season, if I can make my savings last till then (unlikely). Anyway, I'll be posting sporadically at best in the meantime, so just wanted to wish everyone merry xmas and a happy new year, and thanks to mack for running this forum, and everyone who contributes, for helping the night shifts pass by quicker. See you on the other side!
  9. This is a fascinating read about this and related issues. https://www.theguardian.com/news/2018/dec/07/china-plan-for-global-media-dominance-propaganda-xi-jinping

    But then where does Treejack play? I don't know (like genuinely don't know) if he can play as a CM instead of an AM?

    I think this would be lethal. Imagine him getting on the end of Riera's knock downs. Would require a change in formation though. 4-3-1-2, which renders half our squad (i.e. wingers) moot, so probably not gonna happen.
  12. Well, the best example is Portugal, where everything has been legalised for over a decade, and they have the lowest rates of drug induced deaths and harm in general. I don't think there are THAT many people who would be doing drugs but only aren't because it's a hassle to get them. Anyone who's been to a festival knows just by looking around it can't be that hard. People who are addicted to drugs are getting them anyway. People who aren't are not gonna suddenly buy them every weekend like groceries. Obviously there will be exceptions but in general I believe this to be the case. Re: alcohol, the best description I ever heard was from some documentary about ecstasy in England in the 90s. It was an interview with a cab driver, and he said something like 'The 90s were great. People would spill out of clubs hugging each other, hugging me...sometimes I'd get a 50 pound tip! Now everyone's drunk and instead of hugging, they're fighting.' Don't get me wrong, ecstasy is not good for you with prolonged use either. But if you swapped the places of ecstasy and alcohol in society the rates of violence, for one, would plummet dramatically. Plus, alcohol is a literal toxin that eats away at your liver. In moderation, fine, like most other things. But the problem is it is one of the most addictive ones out there. A lot of other drugs, the very nature of them means you can't do it every day, because they lose their potency, and you just don't want to. But booze and cigarettes are so easy to get hooked on. If you want a real sobering (lol) watch, check out Louis Theroux's documentary about alcohol addiction. It's extremely depressing but I think should be required viewing. She said 'you're so funny' I said 'yeah?'
