More Than 60 Russians Die From Drinking Bath Lotion; Putin Moves To Cut Booze Tax

Officials blame a bath lotion used as a liquor substitute in Russia for an outbreak of alcohol poisoning that has now killed 61 people, according to state-run media. As the death toll mounts, President Vladimir Putin plans to cut excise taxes on alcohol, in an effort to cut the demand for surrogate options.

I don’t think that will stop Russians from drinking windshield washer fluid and aftershaves.

Stupid people do stupid things. The world is over-populated. This seems like a good way to cull the herd especially of the less intelligent among us.
