This is by far the dumbest way to get high since Toad-licking!

You know you're getting old when you can't help but say "What the hell is up with kids these days".

I say treat em like dogs. Whenever they do that just turn the hose on em.

I'm sure there are a lot of self-appointed gene pool lifeguards out there who will say "Let them choke each other to rid the human race of their polluted genes".

so let's hear it!

And we can't figure out why the test scores are so low.
2002-10-23 02:27:47 PM  
don't STOP them....

Asphyxiation - fun for all ages!!

hope they never discover plastic bags...

oh wait yes I do
2002-10-23 02:29:00 PM  
"ahhhhhhhhh choke meeeeeeeee good!!!!!"
2002-10-23 02:29:37 PM  
Ah..the old "Cobra Clutch!"

"...after learning some students were choking each other into unconsciousness..."

But luckily for the students, choking each other's chicken is still allowed.

Next thing you know they'll start advising them to wear condoms .... during sex even .... IMAGINE .... the horror .... the horror
2002-10-23 02:32:14 PM  
School officials order students to stop choking eachother. And get back to choking the chicken.

It's the same thing as sniffing clue or gas fumes. It deprives your brain of oxygen. This kills more brain cells than anything else I can think of, and will make you mentally disabled.
Wait until one of them goes unconcious and doesn't wake up.

"This is the time to experiment," she said. "Choking, cutting off oxygen, you can't trace that. It's not a drug but it does alter your perception. It gets you high."

Who would have thought Ike Turner would become this generation's Tim Leary?!

NJ, eh? And they ranked how high in intelligence recently?

Paging Mr. Darwin... paging Mr. Darwin...
2002-10-23 02:34:44 PM  
They should just legalize marijuana, so these kids could get high a safer way. Seriously. This is much deadlier than anyone thinks... hell, even the first time you try it, there's a possibility that you won't wake up.
2002-10-23 02:35:17 PM  
I thought the choking thing had to do with sex. Isn't that supposedly how Michael Hutchence of INXS died?
2002-10-23 02:35:18 PM  
Everything old is new again...

Don't these kids know that you choke each other during sex for that thrill-seeking fun?

Then again, huffing requires you to find a rag and buy some oven cleaner... that's maybe 5 bucks for supplies, choking (which needs a "cool" name to become popular) just needs a crazy football player to strangle you.

Lets get the cool kids to call it "wringing" or "wring" for short... you can get your "Wring on" or "wring off" (if alone)

Personally, I would love to calling choking your chicken, but that's already used.
2002-10-23 02:36:14 PM  
Let the wee bastards kill each other. If the school manages to stop the choking they're just standing in the way of evolution.
2002-10-23 02:36:51 PM  
Didn't we used to wrestle as kids and put people into sleeper holds and do the exact same thing? Except then no one wanted to be the one in the hold... strange how things have changed since I was a kid.
2002-10-23 02:37:04 PM  
Luckily amphibians can also absorb O2 through the skin. I can win this contest. It doesn't hurt being able to hold your breath for 2 minutes.
2002-10-23 02:38:02 PM  
I remember doing this in like 4th grade. We stopped when my friend did it to himself one day while we had indoor recess because of the rain. He was standing up, choked himself, fell over, hit his chin on the tile floor, cracked his jaw, and bled all over everyone.

After that we started sitting down to do it.
2002-10-23 02:38:50 PM  
I wonder which is more dangerous.. This or mabey ohhh, mmmmm say POT?

SmoothTex I though Cane toads (which are not found in N. America I believe) WERE in fact hallucinogenic, unlike your garden variety toad which is just icky.
2002-10-23 02:40:21 PM  
And just why are they trying to stop these idiots? Do they think that they'll someday be productive members of society? Captains of industry? The human race won't evolve any further until we allow natural selection to do its work.

Wow how things have changed. In my day we just did bong hits, snorted bottles of Rush and did whippets.
2002-10-23 02:41:18 PM  
Someone tried this on me in HS--I think they called it airplanes or something. Windmills? I dunno, I cant remember anything anymore.
2002-10-23 02:41:21 PM  
my friend pissed his pants while doing it, that was enough for me not to try it.
2002-10-23 02:41:23 PM  
If only these kids had a leader they could look up to....if only...

I used to date a girl that liked to be choked during sex. To such an extent that she would often pass out. At first I thought it was too weird, but then I got to liking it. After about a year or so I was choking her and slapping her and it was more like rape and I loved it.
Bottom line, she needed therapy before our relationship, I needed it after, and these kids should try pot if they want to get high.
2002-10-23 02:44:54 PM  
"Anyone who chokes themselves to get off will be forced to sit in the study hall and listen to the entire INXS discography."

Damn, give the kids some drugs already!
2002-10-23 02:48:25 PM  
yes, it kills brain cells, but only the weak ones. So you end up with a more efficient brain.
2002-10-23 02:51:46 PM  
Mason55, I did it once in middle school, I just passed out for about 20 seconds. Did I get high? Nope. I doubt its dangerous, that is unless you actually for real choke the person til they pass out, the way I did it was, sit with back to the wall hold your hand to the side of your neck, or something, then hold your breath. Okay, maybe I don't remember how I did it, but it wasn't cool or anything. Get some real drugs if you want to get high, cause choking your self is pretty dumb.
2002-10-23 02:52:33 PM

I couldn't have said it better

If they ever tried any real drugs, they would think choking themselves is the laimest thing---
I would love to spin the shiat out of one of these kids
2002-10-23 02:56:41 PM  
can someone explain how the feds can come in to a state and say no to somthing that the ppl of the that said state vote yes to. by the people, for the people, of the people right?
2002-10-23 02:58:05 PM  
Don't do sports . . . do drugs. It's the American way!
2002-10-23 02:59:55 PM  
I remember kids used to do this stupid shiat in grade school.. 'California Dreamin' I think they called it. While I'm sure it messed up their brains beyond repair, it was much fun for me to watch as they would fall to the ground and bonk their heads. The great part is how much of the kids how did that are now hardcore potheads.

I went to school with some kids who were into "fainting" in grade school. Basically, you stand back to a wall, bend over at the waist (like you're going to touch your toes) so blood rushes into your head, and stay for, like, a minute. Then you stand up suddenly, and someone else either: a) hits you hard in the chest or b) restricts blood flow out of the brain (looks like choking, but it's not). All fun and games until the son of a teacher knocked his head pretty hard and needed the services of the medics.

Ewwwwwwwwwwwww. You stay the hell away from me you freak.
2002-10-23 03:09:26 PM  
whoops, that should be a "who" not a "how"

But since I'm making another post.. I'll tell the story of the two men who met at the local adult video store and went home together.. they were having some fun with choking each other with ropes to enhance the sex.. but I guess the one fellow had his rope too tight and died.. (so remember that, kids!) So his new friend stuffed him in the closet and took off. They found him a few days later when he didn't show up for his job (he was a teacher).

Skip to a couple years later.. I'm with this girl named Jenn.. we're in her room doing what teenagers do when they're alone.. when she tells me "hey, remember that guy who got choked to death by his lover? That happened in this room.. they found him in my sister's closet!". That kinda took the fun outta the rest of the afternoon. I went back and checked wit hsome people, and sure enough, that was the house. farkin creepy.

True story. Anyone in the central Jersey area remember that little fiasco about 5 years ago? Prolly not.. Funny how all this is in New Jersey though.

I remember kids doing that when I was in middle school in the late '80s. I didn't do it though. I was too smart for that. I waited a few more years and smoked pot instead.
2002-10-23 03:24:06 PM  
Don't choke! have a smoke...
2002-10-23 03:41:59 PM  

You are right, some toads do have a poisonous skin secretion which can cause hallucinations in humans (God forbid you're allergic to it). However, I remember that some of the more obtuse kids in North America were licking toads in order to get that "special high".

BTW how did they find out originally that the toads were hallucinogenic if you licked them? Were they going around licking stuff?
2002-10-23 03:51:57 PM  
Smooth Tex,
I think it was first discovered by Indians and written about in their history. At least, as a native Nebraskan, that's the way I heard it told.

I remember one kid in my high school class had a thing for banging his head against walls and running into them. He claimed he had what was later known as Homer Simpson Syndrome, and that the walls wouldn't hurt him because of it.
Ah yes, the high school years. So dumb... so very, very dumb.

2002-10-23 04:01:26 PM  
We use to do this when I was in high school, I only tried it once and didn't feel anything, everyone else would do it all the time. Maybe it does kill brain cells, now I have a good job and they all still live at home with their parents and work at Best Buy.

Amateurs. Everyone knows the proper way to choke yourself is to secure a rope around your neck. Leave it there.
