    Sweden has banned the sale of hand sanitiser gel from shop shelves because kids have been getting drunk on it. Apparently it can contain 85% alcohol and when mixed with fruit juice, it's almost palatable.

    This is what happens when you stop them buying glue. What's going to be next?

    it's what happens when you make the price of alcohol so insanely high as it is in Sweden.

    I remember having to show ID in a shop in Oxford to buy teaspoons after having just bought cigarettes (no ID asked for at that point).....

    But hand gel? Yee gads - can't the kids try the 'trick' of adding water to the clear spirits in mom and dad's drinks cabinet? Worked for us.....

    Life hasn't been the same since schools stopped using Banda sheets, in my experience... ;)
