    Get off your high horse Dicko, because it's pathetic.
    Nah, it's pathetic to claim one's naivity is enlightenment.

    Drugs destroy lives and rip people to shreds. Fact. Not everyone is aware of this, because not everyone has experienced it. There's countless hundreds of people who'd tell you the same thing I tell you about the wretched things, though some might be too keen on being polite to express it accurately enough. So telling one person to get off their high-horse won't help you in the slightest, other than enabling you to pretend that an evil is actually perfectly all right.

    Drugs also save millions of lives on an almost daily basis.

    Similarly to your other religiously-held convictions, it only holds true when you define its meaning. If you define "drugs" to mean illegal narcotics and nothing else, then you're right. If you define "luck in cricket" to mean nothing but dropped chances, then you sometimes have a case. From your perspective it's correct, but when all we see is a blanket statement followed by "anyone who disagrees is just plain ignorant" it doesn't go down well.

    Listen, kids. Drugs aren't cool. Someone who's made over 62,000 posts on a cricket website told me so.

    By "drugs" I basically mean drugs which can broadly be described as black-market ones.

    It should be fairly obvious I'm not referring to drugs as used in medicine or basic, legal things like alcohol and ibuprofen.

    I really CBA wasting time typing-out the above every time I mention the things. As I say, the term "drugs" generally has its own connotations, even if the literal meaning isn't 100% correct.

    Just because certain drugs are legal doesn't stop them wrecking lives

    Indeed. But it isn't always so unambiguous when sweeping statements are made followed by an insult aimed at anyone who disagrees.

    A Pakistani fielder drops a catch near the boundary in that 1999-200 series in Australia.

    Richie Benaud says- "I've been sitting here thinking of an excuse for why that happened...it's one of the hardest things I've ever done".
    "Talent is nothing without opportunity"
    "You're not remembered for aiming at the target, but hitting it"

    Twenty20 used to be boring.

    I'd forgotten this thread. At the time I hadn't touched LSD for nearly 30 years, but whilst following this thread I needed it.

    Can't remember when or who it was, but as a kid watching a random Asian ODI on TV the commentator opens up with "Not a Sky in the Cloud" with incredible charisma (might have been Ravi Shastri), and for some reason it's stuck with me ever since

    Quite prescient really - you have to remember him for that since he's not going to do anything else
