The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.

I’m awarding myself a Doctorate – PHD in everything and nothing

Leave a comment

I do masses of reading on the Internet. Other people’s blogs, articles, videos – the works.  I must know a huge amount. But not much in particular!

This morning, fate took me into viewing a video on “The Worlds Scariest Drug.” I’m not sure how I found it. I think I was watching the Pen and Teller “Second Hand Smoke is Bullshit” video and got side tracked.

That’s the wonderful thing about working to award yourself your own doctorate – you don’t have to stick to the topic!

If you are a knowledge junkie like me, any topic and every topic is interesting.

Back to the “World’s Scariest Drug” – I recognised the plant immediately – it just grew wild in Africa – everywhere. We told our kids it was “poisonous” so to keep away.  Its Datura, plain old Datura.  I found that VERY interesting. Maybe you will too?

The most dangerous drug in the world: ‘Devil’s Breath’ chemical from Colombia can block free will, wipe memory and even kill

Or
Five held in Paris over ‘devils breath’ zombie drug in second sting in weeks

Or

Devil’s breath’ aka scopolamine: can it really zombify you?

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
