I´m a month or so late to commemorate the 13th anniversary of Bill Hicks´s death, but since he wasn´t much of a fan of idol-worship, let´s just not get too hot and bothered about dates. Here he is on the golden arches :

Open a McDonald´s in Moscow and everyone´s backslapping each other. It´s depressing to me. "Oh, it´ll help the economy. McDonald´s, it´ll supply forty-five new jobs there in Moscow." Yeah, twenty dentists and twenty heart specialists. It´s shit. Don´t eat it.

And, in response to Minifig´s post on drug scare-stories, here´s Bill on drugs in the media :

You never see positive drugs stories on the news, do ya? Isn´t that weird? Cos most of the experiences I´ve had on drugs, were rrreal fucking positive. You know what I mean? Always that same LSD story ; you´ve all seen it. "Young man on acid, thought he could fly, jumped out of a building. What a tragedy." What a dick, fuck him! He´s an idiot. If he thought he could fly, why didn´t he take off from the ground first? Check it out. You don´t see ducks lining up to catch elevators to fly south. They fly from the ground, you moron. Quit ruining it for everybody. He´s a moron, he´s dead - good. We lost a moron - fucking celebrate. Boy, I just felt the world get lighter, we lost a moron. I don´t mean to sound cold or cruel or vicious, but I am, so that´s the way it comes out.

How about a positive LSD story? Wouldn´t that be newsworthy, just for once? To base your decision on information rather than scare tactics and superstitions ... and lies? I think it would be newsworthy :

"Today a young man on acid realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we´re the imagination of ourselves. Here´s Tom with the weather..."

Nice. I was actually thinking of adding that quote to the bottom of the post...

Amazingly, the McDonalds next to our local multiplex has just closed!! Is this the beginning of a new Golden Arches-less world.

Happy travelling

Bill Hicks ruled. I was introduced to him by a friend at school... it wouldn't be a bad idea to have at least one PSHE lesson in a child's career devoted to the life and work of Mr Hicks! Maybe then we'd have fewer morons in the army...
