Australian pharmacists are in an uproar over plans to sell ibuprofen over-the-counter. I remember the first time I tried to buy it in the UK and could only find packs of ten tablets. “Why can’t they sell bigger bottles?” I asked the Snook. “So people can’t kill themselves with it,” he replied. It’s much the same here in Oz. Meanwhile I’ve been jealously hoarding the 500-tablet bottle of Wal-Mart $7 off-brand ibuprofen I smuggled in last January. Seriously, if the stuff was going to kill me, I’d have kicked the bucket back in college.
