    Very desperate I would think.

    The latter stages of the alcoholic illness are pretty tragic. Some move on to Nightnurse, aftershave all sorts of things that have alcohol in them. I've even heard of Brasso being doctored in prison to make it drinkable. It's call 'white lady' apparently. Over the stages of the condition the individual deteriorates mentally, physically and spiritually. Eventually the unacceptable becomes acceptable to them.

    There are all sorts of crazy behaviours brought on by the influence of drugs, both legal and illegal. The stories of the misery are endless.

    Can't find a reference to Brasso but it is apparently prison jargon for Meths.

    Sounds like the Darwin principle at work as always.

    Talking about "Just how desperate do you have to be". ...

    Just how desperate/stupid/unlucky to you have to be to die while stuck in a gate ?

    That could be one of EO's mental challenges. You have a gate and a kebab. How do you get stuck in the gate?

    IMHO Brasso is best taken mopped up with white bread to make a Brasso butty. Rocket fuel.
    The Mods stole my post count!
