Vodka, det er fali’ det.
Men hvorfor? Hadde det ikke vært bedre, og i forbrukerens (deg og meg, det norske folks) beste interesse å avskaffe monopolet og la markedskreftene rå? Hva er Statens (legitime) interesse i å regulere hva vi kan kjøpe, hvor og når vi kan kjøpe det, og hva det skal koste? Rasjoneringstida etter krigen er over og vi lever ikke i Sovjet-Unionen, så svaret skulle være enkelt.
Monopoltyranniet vil ikke at du skal had det, Kjøp mens du kan. Eller brenn skjøl…
It is better that somebody does something motivated by profit, than somebody doing nothing due to indifference, lack of incentives, pure laziness, or being a cunt.
A free banana to anybody who knows what the hell I’m talking about.
This could be yours. What you do with it is none of my business.
I can’t prove it, but something’s on fire and I’m pretty sure it’s Ronnie’s pants. While I’m not a Ronnie Coleman-type success story (obviously, and mainly, but not entirely, because of genetics; that part is true), I have been around gyms and the bodybuilding milieu longer than Ronnie has, and been part of, and observed, the “steroid scene” since the late 70s.
There’s an insane difference between what people took in the late 70s/early 80s and business-as-usual in the twenty-aughts. I’m pretty sure what Arnold took in an entire twelve-week prep to a Mr O was equal to or less than what Ronnie or any equivalent mass monster of his caliber/era coasted on on a weekly basis during downtime. Hell, late teens and twenty-somethings today with no ambition other than to impress girls and get laid are out-drugging the Champs of the Golden Era (defined as the time before the ascension of Dorian Yates). I also agree with the guy who commented that the best part was Joe feigning ignorance on the subject.
That said, I admire Ronnie Coleman and think he’s a legend of bodybuilding, but don’t be fooled; “Just the basic stuff, some test and d-ball” and quitting cold turkey between shows is BS. And by that I mean BULL. FUCKING. SHIT!

Today is the worst day of my life since I left Norway in 1996. Tomorrow I can truthfully say the exact same thing. And the next day, and the next, and the…
Next week there is a national election for parliament in Norway, and the only certainty is that, whatever the outcome, shit will degrade. But I can’t vote here, so why do I care?
Russell Brand has matured. Can’t really disagree with him if you have a functioning brain. He also has really nice teeth for a former heroin addict. I said it from day one back in 2001 when I could see the smoke of the Towers from my house in Connecticut; follow the money. Five presidents in a row have fucked it up while five government military contractors have made billions in profit on the back of American taxpayers, leaving tens of thousands American and allied troops and possibly hundreds of thousands of Afghans rotting in their wake. And of all these presidential sinners Trump is the least culpable, yet he’s the one that gets impeached. Twice. Go figure…
EDITED TO ADD: I must have been drunk when I wrote this post, seemingly endorsing Russel Brand’s views unconditionally. While I agree with many of the points he makes, let there be no misunderstanding: The US had every right in the world to go into Afghanistan after 9/11. Not punishing the murder of 3,000 Americans by barbaric cave dwellers with the blessing of the Taliban would have been disgraceful.
