I'd assume there's a strong positive correlation. But I forgot what heroin abuse has to do with law school...

I can agree with this .. much of the addiction literature presents heroin addicts as sexless drones; the idea is that the desire for heroin becomes much greater than the desire for sex, and the only "scoring" the addict is interested in has to do with what goes on in his veins rather than what happens in his pants. While this may be true for some addicts, the story is often more complex. Far more heroin users appear to be "chippers" than "addicts." Chippers are non-addicted casual users. And while the rush you get from heroin may have little influence on the relationships between sex and heroin, that rush is sometimes described as feeling like a full-body orgasm. This is also said to be true for crack cocaine.

The same Loop bank was robbed twice Monday by two different men, a third bank was held up and a fourth was the scene of an attempted heist, police said. About 11:30 a.m., a robbery was reported at the Bank of America branch at 205 W. Monroe St., Central District Capt. Joseph Vaclavik said. A tall man in his 50s or early 60s with salt-and-pepper hair and wearing a gray business suit told a teller he had a gun and announced a robbery, Vaclavik said.

"He said he wanted money and to hurry, hurry, hurry," Vaclavik said.

The man did not display a gun. The teller gave the man cash and he fled west on Monroe. About three hours later, at 2:50 p.m., another robbery was reported at the same bank, which had reopened after the investigation of the first heist ended, police said. A man in his 30s, wearing a red hat and red shirt, robbed the bank and was seen running north on Wells Street, witnesses told police, according to Vaclavik.

The third robbery occurred about 9:42 a.m. at the Plaza Bank branch at 5601 W. Belmont Ave. on the Northwest Side, said Tom Simon, a spokesman for the FBI's Chicago office. The robber approached a teller with a note implying he had a weapon and demanding cash, Simon said. The teller gave an undisclosed amount of money and the man fled. Witnesses said the robber appeared to be in his 20s, about 5 feet tall, 130 pounds, with a thin mustache, Simon said.

At about 5:30 p.m., a 43-year-old man entered the Washington Mutual Bank branch at 609 W. North Ave. and handed a female teller a note threatening her if she didn't hand over money, said police Officer Kristina Schuler. The teller triggered a silent alarm and stalled the suspect until Near North District officers arrived, Schuler said. The officers took the man into custody inside the bank without incident, she said. The case was handed over to the FBI for charging, Schuler said.

Authorities were looking into whether the man was connected to other robberies, she said.


I was about to respond to the OP's drivel, but the previous reactionary post was even more lame.  Now I... uh... wow, forget it.

OP's drivel? I'm sorry, Mr. Leaf, but it appears that many "honor" members of this board agree that the original OP's post is just perfect .. are you somewhat implying that the OP is busting balls?
