    Default Kings College London Research

    Heard on the news earlier that recent research by King's College London, carried out on 15 separate river locations in rural Suffolk, has found surprising levels of both cocaine and ketamine as well as various types of extremely illegal pesticides in their waters.
    Not at all surprised by the illegal pesticides, but the other two are a bit of a head-scratcher.

    What they seem to be specifically pointing out is that it's being found in extremely rural locations, with hardly any population in the immediate vicinities.

    I read that article this morning about the 5 Suffolk rivers where 100% of the shrimps tested showed traces of cocaine and other drugs and pesticides . . . .

    Truly amazing.

    Mind you, it did go some way to explaining the actions of some of the residents of that County . . . .

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    Aaah yes!.... I remember the warnings we were given in early sales training. "...and never, ever take a short-cut down any lanes in Suffolk"

    Yes that is hard to explain. I reckon it's cross contamination from the bloody students at Kings College!

    I don't think such statistics are to be sniffed at, it might be from contamination of a white coat who was partying on down the night before, forgot to wash his hands after wiping his "summer hayfever" nostrils and then fed the shrimp, if you look into it iun detail and go through the kay hole you might actually notice it was Tony Montana who funded the study.
