Topical topic. (not game relevant)

I like playing games high. I admit it. When I was a kid Id get really fucked up then go kill people on quake (No.1 baby!) for hours. Nothing beats a friday night fight with shitloads of meth and twitchy kill counterstrike. Awesome.
Though right now I dont want to talk about that.
On the weekend I was working at one of those huge festivals where everyone (40000 people) is on drugs. We didnt have a single drug related fatality. We had 15 hospital transports from alcohol and 2 from GHB (nasty shit).
Here in the .au 12% of kids (20-29s) have tried or are regular uses of mdma. Thats around about 300,000 people. Of those 50% use it monthly weekly.
It made me wonder. So looked up some stuff.

In the last year weve had 1 reported death from mdma.

In the last year, from one state (NSW) in the same age bracket (a comparable population size) there were around 190 fatal car crashes.

I know its kinda like comparing apples to oranges. Its not like people eat pills all day to get to work. Then again 33% of the fatal crashes happened on fri-sat night between 10pm-5am.
The stats almost say "stay out, its safer".
Crazy world.

I know its not game relevant but I found it interesting. So I thought Id share

About drhqnrilone of us since 6:55 AM on 09.12.2007

Lately it seems that tetris has become my entire life. I could use some analogy and say that every portion of my well rounded existance correlates with a tetragon. Every piece falingl together as I play, but I won't. I've just been playing a lot of tetris because its an easy procrastion.
Interestingly I've also been doing a lot of rock climbing, which is kind of tetris in reverse when you think about it.
I'm not too sure about any other particular interests but I find I'm well informed about world status. I do this by checking my email every five minutes. You never know, someone might have written to you since you last looked. I'm also interested in philosophical physics which is like saying you like religous mathematics or even possibly metaphysical cooking. Except I do actually like it.
I also like noise in the background. My favourite is a radio on just loud enough to hear a humm but not loud enough to actually hear the moronic things that radio DJ's are actually saying.
I dont have a T.V
If anyone finds out anything interesting about me, it would be really good if they could tell me. Unfortunatly I always seem to the last person to find out about things, especially about my own life.
As a side note if anyone could also let me know how they put the fillings in chocolates I'd also be very interested.
