Ho ho ho. I thoroughly enjoyed this article by Richard Dawkins on the perils of Gerin oil (or Geriniol to give it its scientific name) and its intoxicating effects. Dawkins suggests that this powerful substance is both addictive and hallucinatory, and is responsible for many tragic acts of violence. He's puzzled, therefore, about its largely unregulated status, and the fact that it's not just tolerated, but supported by governments, often enjoying tax-free status.
That Dawkins, he's a card. I sometimes find him a bit ranty, but this piece goes in as smooth and sharp as a rapier. Elegant.
