“You fucked up, mate. Looks like you’re a goner.”
Mick Wall, AC/DC: Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be

“Customs all over the world still search me first. I mean, why? Do they think dope smugglers look like me? I don’t think so. And how long have they had to absorb this information? The dope smugglers are the [well-dressed] people with briefcases going right behind me. And they still haven’t got the brains to figure that out. They say, “Everyone with long hair is a drug smuggler.” Well good fucking luck.”
