you learn something new everyday....

I am learning all kinds of new and useful information while studying.

"Bayer" like in Bayer aspirin used to manufacture Heroin. Seriously. they manufactured it until 1919.

Where did the term "junkie" come from?

~the habit of early herion addicts to scrounge scrap metal and other trash/junk to sell to support their habit.
