27 March, 2003: Just Say No

[ Home page | Web log ]

For those who didn't see it the first time it made its way 'round the ``'blogosphere'', this film of LSD being tested on British troops at Porton Down is hilarious:

... the efficiency of the rocket launcher team was also very impaired. Ten minutes later, the attacking section had lost all sense of urgency....

One hour and ten minutes after taking the drug, with one man climbing a tree to feed the birds, the troop commander gave up, admitting that he could no longer control himself or his men.

He himself then relapsed into laughter.

For some reason, this film puts me in mind of the Monty Python Funniest Joke sketch. Hmm.
