    Question Ron, got his facts wrong:

    In 'Ron the Adventurer', he uses a twig of absinthe as seasoning.... but Absinthe is a spirit deriveted from flowers and leaves of the herb Artemisia absinthium, commonly referred to as "grande wormwood".
    Absinthe was portrayed as a dangerously addictive psychoactive drug.

    How many other examples can you recall where the 'Ron got his facts wrong ?

    "The French word absinthe can refer either to the alcoholic beverage or, less commonly, to the actual wormwood plant (grande absinthe being Artemisia absinthium, and petite absinthe being Artemisia pontica)."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Absinthe (Apparently the same source you used. Same verbiage, cut and pasted, same photo...) How many other examples can we find where Lohan omited data in an attempt to falsely discredit someone?

    Even more than getting His 'facts' wrong, Ron even more frequently got His *interpretations* of facts wrong. Often just out of ignorance, but, quite often, out of deliberate opportunism.

    And what does Artemisia absinthium do once in the human body?

    Worse: it was a minor point as well as easily seen to be incorrect.

    The same could be claimed of your interpretation of his interpretations.
    Thank you, LRH... Without you this forum wouldn't exist
