    In Dickens' "Bleak House", it happened to Krook because he drank too much cheap gin. Not sure if that was a factual account. Nevertheless, I've been staying away from gin ever since I read that. You just can't be too careful. A little sip of Bombay Sapphire shouldn't hurt once in a while, though. They use only the finest botanicals. :biggrin:

    Check out the skeptecism & debunking section. There was a thread about it a while ago.
