I think doping should be allowed. Thus, sport really becomes the question of what the limits of our bodies truly are. I don't agree. The most obvious reason doping should not be allowed is because of the deleterious side effects. All sports would turn into a 'live fast, die young' proposition, and ...

You can enjoy a genre of music and you shouldn't have to feel compelled to go out and do something you heard in the song and if you do and you blame that song then that is simply you not taking responsibility for your actions.
