Heavy-metal addict gets state benefits for his disability12/21/2012
Bang your head over this: Roger Tullgren is a 42-year-old Swedish man who has been cleared for state disability benefits because of heavy metal. Is he a roadie who wrecked his back schlepping amps? Nope. Did he go deaf from standing too close to the stage? Hardly. He's been certified by three psychologists as an addict, unable to function in the workplace unless he can wear black T-shirts and camo pants and dash off to concerts — 300 last year alone. He's not a total slacker: He'll be supplementing his metalhead's comp by washing dishes. Although given the dubious standards to become a psychologist in Sweden, he seems perfectly qualified for that gig, too. [Source]
