All You Need Is Phenylethylamine

I'm not sure that I'd want 10,000 Mars bars, and I love chocolate. Maybe they can be used to make a bomb? In any case, one woman cleaned out a Woolworths in London, paying with 50-pound notes. Was her motivation chemical?

London has Woolworths?

Gary, you are my HERO. This post has everything a good post needs. A reference to mind altering substance. A reference to an essential food source. A question about the inscrutable behavior of our neighbors across the Atlantic AND a link to information about The Best Television Cartoon Ever Made. Thank your for making my dreary day in the land of imaginary products SO much better.

Thanks! According to this story, the "toff" spent about US$3824.

MSNBC reports that Woolworths in the UK is both a different company and a different idea from the chain of the same name in the USA; allegedly, Woolworths is "the" chocolate shop over there. However, looking at the link I found, that seems like a poor description. What has happened to quality reporting?
