Eight Questions about Heroin and the Death of P.S.H.

Eight questions about heroin and the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman – The Washington Post.

The article above cites the following as what happens when one takes heroin….it sounds like something better than sex…But, of course these feelings fade with the addiction and then, maybe, you’ll die.

A short but powerful “rush” and then a high that lasts four to five hours. It is described as a warm, drowsy, cozy state. People report a profound sense of satisfaction, as though all needs were fulfilled. There is also a pleasant state of mild dizziness that is not as impairing as alcohol’s effects, and a sense of ‘distancing’ or apathy toward whatever is going on in the environment.

Thank You MTA Conductor! Ms. Hermon Raju Kicked Off Train for Talking On Cell Phone

Click for Olbermann's Worst Person: Hermon Raju

Hermon Raju is a ‘well-educated’ Metro North rider..who is very rude and does not like to follow the rules of civility. MTA rules state that cell phone use or other audible disturbances are not allowed on the train. Congratulations and thank you to the MTA conductor. THANKS. Thanks.

One more than one occasion I’ve asked people to lower their conversations (on Metro North, Hospital ERs, restaurants, and Starbucks)…I really cannot stand rude cell phone users…People, a whisper works just fine…or take it outside. It can wait. My problem is that I cannot ask with a lot of sweetness…Rude people suck.

Ms. Raju speaks out….again.

 

Here is a screen-shot of the rudest passenger’s Linkedin profile: She needs to add ‘worst person’ award to her profile.
