Why Drugs are Bad (or, Why Drugs are Good)

Depending on the circumstance, drugs can good or bad. Sometimes, it's hard to tell which it is. I'm referring to a friend of my dad. He left some crazy messages on my answering machine, so I decided to save them and put them up on my web page. The Ed Messages, as I call them, are the result of someone who probably needs to be taking more drugs. Go ahead and

Does he work for the government? (1)

He doesn't seem to be like most paranoid crazies that I've met. He doesn't scream or accuse your dad or anything like that. He is calm and rational except that what he is saying is really paranoid.

Maybe he has info that the government doesn't want divulged?

Or maybe he's just a paranoid crazy person.

I am fascinated, why don't you give us more background on what the hell is going on. People are shooting pellet guns at him?

Never the less, it's been my experience that if someone is already fucked up drugs will probably make it worse not better.

Well, from what my dad explains, it's not that he's getting shot in the neck so much as they are implanting tracking-device pellets in his neck.

He's definitely got some kind of progressive paranoia-inducing mental disease; my dad tells me he used to be a pretty sharp, smart guy, but now he's unable to keep a job for very long and very, very paranoid.

One time he called and I answered the phone (this was between message 3 and 4, I believe). He asked if my dad was there, I said no, he moved, but I could give my dad's new number. He said "You can do that?" And I told him for him, I could, but there's not many people I'd share that information with.

He actually hasn't called my house in months now; my dad spoke with him a month ago and told me that he sounded even worse than he did the last time he spoke with him (probably a month or two before that). From what my dad said, it sounds like this guy now thinks that my dad is in cahoots with the people who are out to get him, so he won't try turning to my dad for help anymore. In fact, he kinda scared my dad with what he said...

ugh, i had dreamed up something entirely different and much more light hearted. It must suck when your brain turns against you so dramatically like that
