Golfers Discover Meth Lab on Golf Course
By mustang6560 on 10/1/13
Donaldson Golf Club is a relatively normal 9-hole golf course located in Greenville, South Carolina.

The only unusual thing about the course is its a part of a working airstrip, so as the course description says, "It is very common to have a C141 fly right over your head as you prepare to hit a tee shot or make a putt."

That was until a pair of golfers discovered a makeshift meth lab on the course.
Just off the golf cart path, close to the fourth green, Harold Alexander said he and his golfing buddy found some weed killer containers.

"He just thought it belonged to the clubhouse and they had been killing weeds," said Alexander.

They took the containers to the club house.

"The owner, he took the top off and he said it had a really vile smell, almost knocked the top of his head off, he said. So that's when he called the Sheriff's Department," said Alexander.

Greenville County's Hazardous Materials team, EMS and the Donaldson Fire Department rushed to the scene and evacuated the club.
I'm not a fan of the TV show Breaking Bad, but I'm married to one so I know the series finale was Monday. For those of you who don't know, the show is about a high school chemistry teacher who developed terminal cancer, and to help support his family financially decided to get into the meth business with one of his former students.

Anyway, I've always wondered if the popularity of the show would increase meth production in the U.S. I'm not saying this case is related to Walter White, but my curiosity is piqued.

Don't you mean "Heisenberg"? And are we talking about the uncertainty principle, the observer effect, or even the Hawthorne Effect? And don't even start on Schrödinger's cat... :-P

My wife wanted to open a restaurant and I told her if we ever did each day there would be a "Schrodinger's Special." It would cost $13 and come under a cloche. That is all you would know. It could be surf & turf or it could be Romman noodles, or if you left the cloche on it could be both and neither.

She replied "So I guess we aren't opening a restaurant."

Jason: That sounds like a better concept for a restaurant than if I tried to open one with my favorite cuisine: "Tor's Pizza Shop." Some customers might think I would offer a lutefisk pizza...
