Because their actions are treachery against Her Majesty, and aiding and abetting enemies of Her Majesty is one of the greatest offences a British citizen can commit."
"Effects of Tyrosine, Phentermine, Caffeine d-amphetamine, and Placebo on Cognitive and Motor Performance Deficits During Sleep Deprivation." Nutritional Neuroscience. 2003
