FRANK

FRANK can piss off and die. The ad campaign only started this week and after one evening of seeing it I'm already ready to kill.

No, it's the governments new drug education scheme. Really irritating little kid with a question mark on the top of his head.

The website has a great bit where you can drag drugs onto a teenager and they are cool for a bit then it all goes tits up... unless you drag a new drug onto them first! Yay.

Thats just too cool. That teenager must be a walking pharmacy by now just to avoid all those side effects.

I am sure that this comedy value side affect was unintentional.

Shit, he's starting to get Paranoid, pile on the LSD!

Apparently 30% of calls made to the Frank drug advice line are along the line of "My dealers on Holiday, know any good ones in the Lemmington Spa area?" ;)

Apparently there is a road just outside Hartlepool that isn't a big drugs area, but for the UK thats the only spot.

Advice that is given out about drugs these days is fucking shit!! All they do is whinge and say dont do them, there ar enot many oplaces you can get decent advice on how to take your drugs properly and what to do if you do spak out!!! Grrr this is why id like to have my own leaflet or something with various bits and pieces on (am trying to bully doctor friend into helping)
Also FRANK wont let me work for them cos i do drugs :S dumbasses

To have done them is often a good recommendation because you know the drawbacks better than most......

exactly, with FRANK you have to be "clean". I personnaly think thats stupid, everytime you do drugs you learn something new, gain a better understanding of what you take. Im no uber expert... well i have taken a hell of a lot and intend to do more, but just getting a group of people who have had loads of experience and who arent preechy fucking born-agains together would be perfect for putting together a leaflet or website or whatever. :D *finally breathes* lol

A champion of the light must have known the darkness at some point or he does not know what he fights against :)

Perhaps there's a way we can convince these people that it might be better to leave this in the hands of people who actually know what they're on about.

Anyone else up for seeing if we can knock the stuffing out of the shirts?

"A champion of the light must have known the darkness at some point or he does not know what he fights against"

- So therefore all Doctors must have died before knowing how to save people's lives?

LOL!

Excellent

Yes, you're absolutely right, I wouldn't want anyone talking to me about death unless they've actually died, just as I don't want anyone talking to me about god unless they've met him, I don't want people who've never smoked ranting on about how evil smoking is, I don't want anonymous faceless people questioning me on my thoughts, I don't think that I should advise vegetarians on dietary matters and I don't think that people who've never been to the gym in their life should tell me I'm wasting my time.

As for trying to save lives, if you've ever been saved, you know how important those minutes are between when you're about to die and when you don't, so you understand far more when you're saving someone yourself how that person is thinking and feeling, so you'll probably have a far greater amount of empathy with them, and that will help you to help them, so yes, I believe it helps peoples perspectives if they have first hand experience of whatever it is that they are trying to help with.

Does that help? :)

How's the bridge by the way?

Still. If Frank were to come visiting on a particularly bad experience it would certainly cure people of a dependancy...

Just imagine all those people going cold turkey... Their paranoia focused on where frank might be hiding!

Frank; "So why ARE your pupils so dilated???"
Me; "F-Off kid, before we through you to the peadaphiles."

Theres a part of me that feels sorry for that kid, who is going to get saddled with that role for life...

From the Chris Morris archive:

Edited extract from Cake, finally broadcast Feb 5, 1997, postponed from Nov 1996 following concerns over taste and decency.

The episode opens with Morris as reporter Ted Maul explaining the evil threat of a new drug.

Maul: It's a new Czechoslovakian drug called Cake. And luckily the story involves these people: Free the United Kingdom from Drugs and British Opposition to Medically Bi-sterbile Drugs. [Morris holds up a T-shirt with the acronyms F.U.K.D and B.O.M.B.D and a series of interviews with concerned celebrities follows]:

Bruno Brookes: You know they've even tested this stuff on rats. Turned them into bloody Space Hoppers.

Bernard Manning: One little kiddie on cake cried all the water out of his body. Just imagine how his mother felt. It's a fucking disgrace.

Manning: And if you're sick on this stuff, you can puke yourself to death. One girl threw up her own pelvis. What a fucking disgrace.

Noel Edmunds: What is cake? Well, it has an active ingredient which is a dangerous psychoactive compound known as di-mesmeric ansonphosphate. It stimulates the part of the brain that deals with time perception so a second feels like a month. Almost sounds like fun, unless you're the Prague schoolboy who walked out into the street in front of a tram. He thought he'd got a month to cross the street.

Drugs are BAD

They make you lose weight
They make you sociable
They stop you getting drunk
And they make you periodically happy

Steer clear.
