Do they pay drug addicts to support their addiction, too? He's addicted to crack, the government should step in and make sure he can smoke a rock every half hour while at work. It's a disease. Idiots.

/what about Fark?

That's the dumbest shiat I've ever heard.

If it was a medical problem or some hindrance to him actually performing normal day-to-day tasks, yeah, you could call that a handicap.

This isn't heavy-metal addiction, it's growing-up-aphobia.

You all have to understand, it was his one way ticket to midnight. The music made him higher than high, feelin' just right, until it felt like desperation on a red line.

God this is the greatest thing of all time. I need to move to Sweden. Gorgeous metal guys and disability for music addiction.

Yeah, i had to cut my hair and stop dressing metal to get a real job and it broke my heart. i'm a soulless drone now...but I can afford good tickets to Slayer/Marilyn Manson in August. I'd kep it real, but I don't want to be a failed dishwasher for the next 30 or 40 years.

Just because it's a Swede.

Metal addiction isn't a handicap, it kicks ass.

Let's hope this doesn't spread to Norway. Hundreds of black metal musicians on the dole... They won't have any reason to be eeevil anymore!
