CC Random thread

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Until 1995, European highway E6 ran through Hell, Norway.

It’s easy to imagine what people heading that way may have listened to on their car stereo.

This is one of the more powerful optical illusions I've seen in a while.

I consider it a cure to a problem, not a cause of a problem.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Nice.... so someone that partakes once in a blue moon deserves to die. It’s not killing the zombies in the East end. Those clowns all have multiple free narcan kits and they all use together like the inbred shitrats that they are. It’s the occasional, casual user that’s getting snuffed out at a pretty high rate. Clean the shit up and legalize and/or decriminalize for small amounts.

OxyContin was a gateway for my nephew becoming a heroin junkie. He’s clean now, but it was a battle for him to get clean. He started taking Oxy in University. The Sackler Family who own Pharma are an evil greedy Jewish family who need to start paying back. Evil fucks. Would dearly love to see that family go down in flames

Oxy going down
McKinsey Proposed Paying Pharmacy Companies Rebates for OxyContin Overdoses.

Court filings reveal consultants’ talk of a records purge during the opioid crisis, and shed new light on sales advice given to the billionaire Sackler family and their drug company, Purdue Pharma.

When Purdue Pharma agreed last month to plead guilty to criminal charges involving OxyContin, the Justice Department noted the role an unidentified consulting company had played in driving sales of the addictive painkiller even as public outrage grew over widespread overdoses.

Documents released last week in a federal bankruptcy court in New York show that the adviser was McKinsey & Company, the world’s most prestigious consulting firm. The 160 pages include emails and slides revealing new details about McKinsey’s advice to the Sackler family, Purdue’s billionaire owners, and the firm’s now notorious plan to “turbocharge” OxyContin sales at a time when opioid abuse had already killed hundreds of thousands of Americans.

In a 2017 presentation, according to the records, which were filed in court on behalf of multiple state attorneys general, McKinsey laid out several options to shore up sales. One was to give Purdue’s distributors a rebate for every OxyContin overdose attributable to pills they sold.
