the gold to ciba-geigy, the silver to roche…

half-watching that c4 prog on doping last night, mark s and the “unspecified guests” solved the moral-philosophical problem of chemical enhancement viz like in grand prix, the teams shd be sponsored by the corp (or plucky underdog indie street lab) responsible for the enhancement technology

ie driving a ferrari in the 100 metres dash = cheating, unless everyone else has one, in which case it becomes a difft kind of race

event 1: roided 400m
event 2: clean 400m
event 3 = shoeless 400 m ect ect

(haha note ineffably feeble “hip” referencing open linked review: “The drugs don’t work, so the song says. But do they?”)
