The 40-year-old, named as Andreas O., left his silver VW Golf in a side-street, near a tram stop, before hurrying to get a tram to the Theresienwiese where the Oktoberfest is held.

But after a day of beer, roast ox and folk music, the factory worker realized he had forgotten the names of both the street and the tram stop – and had no idea where his vehicle could be.

Via The Journal:



A ruling in the Court of Appeal on the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977 this morning effectively means that the possession of certain drugs, which had been illegal, is currently legal.

The court ruling found that the 1977 Act was being added to via ministerial order without recourse to the Oireachtas, in violation of article 15 of the Constitution.

Ministerial orders had been used nine times since the Act’s inception to outlaw the possession of drugs like ecstasy, ketamine, magic mushrooms, benzos and other drugs.

Humberto Moura Fonseca, age 23, drank 25 shots of vodka in less than a minute.  He and his friends, other students at the University of Julio de Mesquita, were involved in a drinking competition during the time of this tragic event. Soon after he finished the shots, he complained of feeling ill and collapsed to the floor. 

A medical crew was fast on the scene and rushed Fonseca and others to the hospital. Unfortunately,  he passed away during transport and doctors later confirmed the cause was alcohol posioning. 

The quote is from Russian poet Vladimir Maiakovski and was posted on Fonseca's facebook page. 

Police are investigating the situation and may charge those who organized the contest, thought to be other students at the university, with homicide.

Though when we say "you" we mean "scientists with the appropriate time and resources to devote to a very fragile and complicated process". Scientists from U.C. Berkeley, Concordia University in Montreal and University of Calgary have developed a fifteen step process using three different genetically modified yeasts to turn glucose into morphine. Eventually, it could be used to produce opiod drugs easier but at the moment it takes 53 gallons of the specialized yeast to create 30 mg of morphine.
