"Dear FOX News: Punctuation: It’s there for your protection." - @petershankman
Maybe Kathleen actually DID bang an aviation expert and Fox News was right.
Oh, to say Charles Pierce NAILS IT on this one, does it no justice. Boom!
Remember folks, heroin IS an opiate. All opiates/opioids are derivatives of the opium poppy. Heroin, morphine, percocet, oxycontin, vicodin, etc…all opium derivatives. I never tried heroin, but tried opiates on many occasions and certainly abused them. I was only a step or two away from heading down a worse road.
Addiction is first a biological and genetic disorder, before it hijacks our freewill center (the frontal cortex) and turns our spiritual condition to smoldering ash. There is a reason the Big Book opens with “The Doctor’s Opinion.”
Be fearless, be thorough. Ignorance is not bliss. Knowledge is power. Learn the facts. Know your enemy.
I can’t stress this enough. Every single person I know who had or has a heroin problem started with painkillers. Every single one. It is the common prologue to all of our tragedies.
This is why I take messing around with painkillers *very* seriously and my stomach turns into knots when someone tells me they like them.
(Of course if you actually need them for chronic pain that is a completely separate issue - I’m speaking purely in terms of recreational abuse here)
Fox News misspelled spelling bee.
Ok.. but I really thought that this was funny..
