Damn kids, get off my lawn!

Prof David Nutt is giving a talk tonight. IN WELLINGTON!

For those who don't know, he's the ex-chair of the Advisory Committee on the Misuse of Drugs in Britain. He was sacked last year for being outspoken about his research, which challenged the traditional stance of the government on drug policy, instead of toeing the party line and remaining silent. Since then, the Advisory Committee has more or less fallen apart as scientists realised the implications of government not only ignoring evidence when creating policy, but actively silencing those whose evidence disagrees with policy. They did not manage to silence Dr Nutt, however. His research has become more widely known since the media storm surrounding his sacking.

So yeah. How there am I?

THIS THERE *holds out hands wide*

Unicorns, ponies, rainbows. In that order, according to NetEmpathy.

Also, I now have two more files and the floor isn't quite empty. Sewing patterns, rolls of paper/card, and some assistance to Ms Polly with sorting her witchy files (which were in a cabinet but must now fit on a bookshelf), and we're done.

OMG less than a week go us!
