Revelry and Mayhem

A short piece in City Journal:

…it has become increasingly difficult to distinguish between the sound of young British people enjoying themselves and the sound of young British people committing murder in the street. I do not exaggerate. Twice in recent years I have heard the “normal” sound of drunken revelry outside in the early hours of the morning, only to discover later that it was the sound of someone being stabbed or beaten.

    Dalrymple is fortunate – when he starts to have auditory hallucinations, he knows exactly where to go.

    OTOH medical students have a reputation for drunken debauchery so maybe that’s what he was hearing.

    Agreed. It appears as the the moderating influence of intelligence dissipates, the sound of fury and happiness merge. Soon to just as it was in the beginning. A series of grunts and squeals.

    Two recent pieces of ground breaking research have proven the link between nutrition and DNA integrity. To to my web site and look up the first two references for these reports.
