Did you know that Elvis Presley was made an honorary DEA agent by Richard Nixon? I had seen this photo before, but never knew the context in which it was taken.
The irony here is that he was (most likely) out of his mind on all kinds of painkillers when he met Nixon and was made a “Federal Agent at Large” in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. When he died (at 42) on August 16, 1977 he had 14 drugs in his system, including Codeine, Morphine, Quaaludes, Valium, Demerol, and Diazepam.
This is most likely common knowledge to the majority of you, but I thought it was pretty interesting… They mentioned it on Howard Stern on my drive into work.
On a completely unrelated note, I laughed pretty damn hard at this video: My Voice Is Higher Than Your Voice. It may have had something to do with the fact that I had been at work for over 12 hours prior to viewing and was slightly delirious, but I still think it’s funny. That is all, carry on.
