    Breaking News….. Apple was supplying Crystal Meth to their workers to finish off production of the New IPhone 5 in order to compete with Samsung’s new model the S3. What they didn’t realize was the side effect that cause workers to riot and the guards beating up over dosers as workers are getting addicted to the drug…….
