Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond has announced that Scottish voters will get the chance to vote on whether or not they want independence from the UK in 2014.

Salmond chose '14 because he wants the vote to take place "just after the 700th anniversary of a renowned Scottish victory over the English at Bannockburn."

Glasvegas Frontman Suffered Drug Overdose At Coachella

Filed under: DrugsMusic MinuteSad SadHealth

Glasvegas frontman overdose

Scottish rock band Glasvegas mysteriously canceled their debut performance at the Coachella music festival in 2009 reportedly due to their frontman, James Allan, suffering from exhaustion and dehydration.

However, Allan has finally revealed it was, as many speculated, due to a drug overdose.

In a recent interview, he opens up about his drug problems and his accidental overdose, saying:

"I was lost and desperate. We'd played a TV show in L.A. the night before, and I'd taken a lot of coke. Just stupid amounts. Then the day of the festival, I took what I thought was Valium and it turned out to be an animal tranquilizer."

Thankfully, despite the near fatal mix-up, he lived to tell the story and reminisced:

"I was walking off the bus, and I remember this as being almost like a dream, and I fell off the top stair. I couldn't put my hands up to break my fall, and when I hit the ground, it was the most relaxing, comfortable feeling I'd ever felt. Then the lights went out. Next thing I remember was waking up, like, whoosh!, in the dressing room with paramedics standing around me."

His wake up call finally came when he saw the look in his mothers eyes at the hospital, but oddly more stinging was the look in his cats eyes. He explained:

"My mum came into my room (one day) with the cat under her arm and tears in her eyes. That was bad enough, but I'll never forget the cat's face: it was horrible, man… My mum walked in that morning and said that she knew something had been going on, so I sat up in bed and said, 'Look, I need to talk to you. This is the way I've been living for the last year… '"

We hope you have put those drug days behind you, James! You are a talented individual we would hate to lose.

Scottish Scientists Launch New Study To Seek Cure For Forgetfulness

Filed under: DrugsMental HealthScience!

scottish scientists starting new study to seek cure for forgetfulness

…What were we talking about again???

OH RIGHT! Scottish scientists at Glasgow-based company CPS Research are launching a study to seek a cure for forgetfulness.

Here's what CPS Research's Dr. Alan Wade had to say about it:

"What we are referring to should not be confused with the serious memory loss that is often associated with early onset dementia. This study is aimed at those who are constantly losing their keys, forgetting people's names or misplacing their glasses rather than anything more serious."

In the study, the researchers will test "whether a smaller dose of the Alzheimer's drug memantine can help tamp down a condition they've given the moniker 'Busy Lifestyle Syndrome,' " which they refer to as "a catch-all for the craziness that comes with everyday modern life: tweets, IMs, texts, e-mails."

Very interesting stuff! We should totally hop a plane to Glasgow to see them at work!

…But hopping a plane would require us to drive to the airport…AND we seem to have misplaced our car keys!

We need your help, CPS Research! Please! LOLz.

No More Freeballing Under Your Kilt

Filed under: Fashion Smashion

scottish-tartans-authority-wants-scots-to-put-on-underwear-beneath-their-kilts.jpg

For the proud Scots who go commando under their kilt, the Scottish Tartans Authority wants you to stop.

The STA's director Brian Wilton calls the act of freeballing both childish and unhygienic, adding:

"The idea that you are not a real Scot unless you are bare under your kilt should be thrown into the same wastepaper basket as the idea that you are not a real Scot unless you put salt on your porridge."

Devout panty wearer and Scottish politician Jamie McGrigor is also anti-commando:

"I have normally worn underwear with my kilt. In the West Highlands, midges can mount alarming and unexpected attacks on so-called true Scotsmen."

Ha!

We can only imagine how awesomely frightening that sight would be.
