When you've got a "handful of scattered cases", the next step is to write an article on MSNBC to really help it get off the ground.

You think that when you drink embalming fluid you get high ?

You come to US

A scattered handful of cases does not a wave make.

This is one of those things that I can never understand; while there is a need to report actual news, why put out a story about a few stupid kids ingesting a substance they shouldn't be. All you've managed to do is show this "new fad" to way more kids than probably ever knew or thought about it.
 
2011-07-06 10:17:27 PM  
Eh, that nasty "wet" shiat is back. Great.

People, just stick with the natural things and you'll be all right. There's a reason they put that crap in dead bodies.

Wet? Wow i thought that that fad was gone for good. I guess the 90's are back in style. That would help explain why I saw a giftshop selling 8x10's of Odo from DS9 yesterday.

Some people I used to hang with many, many years ago used to smoke joints dipped in this crap. They called it "boat." It seemed colossally stupid to me. Wouldn't go near it with a ten-foot pole. But they'd go out of their way to get their hands on it.

I mean, more power to 'em if that's what they wanted to do, but I can't help but think that most of them are dead by now.

Freon? Really? I remember the big fad at our school was huffing Butane.

OH! You mean Coffin Nails! Yeah, we get more than our fair share of these idiots. Most of them are in the smaller, rural suburbs though. Every now and then a funeral home in Memphis will get broken into, and a few of these bottles stolen. They have no clue what the stuff will do to their bodies, though.

Silly subby. Ingesting embalming fluid would be a very quick way to death.

If you OD on embalming fluid, does your family get a discount at the funeral home since you've saved them some materials?

I was told by a detective that the neighborhood behind the store I worked at was the city's source of water. I replied, "No, there's like three reservoirs." He said, "No, not water, water. You dip a joint in embalming fluid and smoke it." I was like "Damn, waste of a good joint then." He concurred. He then went on to tell me that it was the most violent high out there, and that it literally eats holes in the brain. It hooks you and then kills pretty quickly. Each generation of users has had to find out about it independently because they'd die before a drug culture could be built up around it.

Anyway, the gang in that neighborhood was basically poisoning druggies in other areas to bring heightened attention on rival gang territories and disrupt their business.

Nice to see that people are cutting the drugs out and going straight for the raw poison. Leaves more of the good stuff for the rest of us.

Formaldehyde gets metabolized into formic acid, which can really f*ck up your optic nerve. (It's the same mechanism by which methanol causes blindness. Methanol is metabolized into formaldehyde.)

In short, anybody who ingests that crap on purpose is a goddamned idiot.

I think my life topped out in 1969. I was eight.

Avoid shooting yourself in the head.

Refrain from jumping from 30 story buildings.

Decline invitations to immerse yourself in napalm while smoking a cigar.

Resist the temptation to jump into an operating woodchipper.

Desist from the practice of decapitation.

Use non-toxic liquids in which to immerse your marijuana cigarettes, or as you trendy young people call them, your "hookah butts."

(Did I say that right?)

Ever since the Jerry Garcia died, inexpensive, and widely available, LSD had been unavailable for teenage experimentation. Really, what would be better than a hit of acid, a couple of blunts, and the new Nintendo 3ds version of Zelda?

90's? shiat, the black guys I worked a summer job with in the 80's were doing this. They called a joint soaked in the stuff a "Sherman".

Formaldehyde is farking putrid shiat.

Just smoke weed, idiotic kids.

I think we should start a rumor that pouring sea salt in your eyes gets you really high and makes you trip hard.

That would be a funny round of Darwinism.
 
2011-07-06 11:12:01 PM  
Pretty sure this is half-baked bad reporting. "Embalming Fluid" and "Formaldehyde" are street names for PCP. (Which is pretty nasty stuff to begin with) I doubt someone would actually survive smoking real formaldehyde even once. Its just too toxic.

Everything moves in 20 years cycles. The 90's are in fact coming back. Notice how more and more radio stations are playing "oldies" from the 90's. An awful, terrible decade for music. It gets my vote as the worse ever.

We should encourage this and kill off all the stupid drug users. The smart ones will stay the hell away and strengthen our species.


OT: In the 90s all the kids in my school were snorting crushed Altoids. Apparently the mint oil would give them a massive adrenalin rush. Do kids still do that?

I still crush Altoids in my mouth when I am giving that special attention to a lady.

"why does your mother smoke pipe
with crack on the inside
she likes to take a bus ride
with a sherm stick in her mouth
preachin' about
what the world's goin' on
I don' know what's up
the biatch smokes
a lotta heron
every day a hard
basehead
I don' know what to say
where's bus stop we'll call you up"

Nope. I had a friend that worked at a funeral home in the 90s. While the street names for PCP may be legit, people do dip their stuff in actual embalming fluid. He would sell dipped Camels for 2 dollars a pop.

/Never tried one
