Addicted to Heavy Metal

There’s all kinds of addictions, but this one takes the cake …

This past June a Swedish man, Roger Tullgren, 42, was granted supplemental income benefits by the Swedish government’s employment service.

Tullgren was granted this income based on his illness of addiction to heavy-metal music. Maybe he should have held out for a structured settlement, although I’m not sure governments do those kinds of settlements.

Tullgren stated that he’d been addicted to the music for 10 years and finally succeeded in getting three psychologists to sign papers officially calling his condition a disability.

He’s now allowed to play music while he works as a dishwasher.

Unbelievable!

Sometimes it pays to be a drug addict

In November, Britain’s Home Office announced that it agreed to a settlement to a lawsuit that had been created by 197 Heroin-addicted prisoners that it was “assault” and violation of European Convention on Human Rights for them to have been denied drugs almost immediately after they were arrested. The government has agreed to pay each of the prisoners the equivalent of about $7000.
