Bonus Quote of the Day (Jose Canseco, on ‘Dragon Blood’)
“I do not smell like dragon blood and
immortality.”—Former steroids-enhanced baseball slugger Jose Canseco, May 18, 2013 tweet

You, very famously, wrote a whole book about it; Charlie admitted his use, more than 20 years after the fact, in this account on Huffington Post, that he had juiced up to add some extra realism to his role as "Wild Thing" in Major League.)
The reason why I ask: Your (mis)use
of social media has already given you both a dubious form of immortality.
