“I wouldn’t recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they’ve always worked for me. When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.
You can turn your back on a person, but never turn your back on a drug, especially when it’s waving a razor-sharp hunting knife in your eye: Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride.”
