Oh hell no. I grabbed the heavy duty pruning shears and plunged them into his chest.


Did someone run up, yell "Stop in the NAME OF THE LAW" in a british accent, and throw their baton through the store window in a dramatic, slow motion fashion?

dprathbun: ZzeusS: dprathbun: I had a landlord that was a Listerine drunk. Part of my rental agreement was to keep the lawns mowed-the mower and stuff being kept in a small, locked shed in the back yard. The first time I went to mow the lawn there were about fifteen empty, giant economy-size bottles stacked along one wall. I didn't think much about it.

As the months went by the number of empties kept increasing. A lot. So much so that it was becoming difficult to get the mower in and out of the shed. I resolved to ask him about it next time he was over.

The next week-having neither seen nor spoken to the guy, I head out to do some serious mowing and notice the shed door ajar. I mosey on over and open the door to find my soon to be ex-landlord frothing and twitching on the ground in some kind of mouthwash induced fit. Now, while he did smell minty fresh, I wasn't about to do mouth-to-mouth on this guy if it became necessary. CPR? Sure. MtM. Not a chance.

Anywho, the EMTs show up but it's a bit late. The poor bastard didn't even make it out of the shed.

You sat there and watched the guy die? That's pretty hard core, man.

Oh hell no. I grabbed the heavy duty pruning shears and plunged them into his chest.


And that's the way it's supposed to done!

ambassador_ahab:

Are they trying to say that getting drunk from drinking this stuff is more dangerous than getting drunk from drinking booze/beer/wine/etc.?

Having only made it this far through the thread, I hope I won't turn out to be the only Farker who points out that a) some sanitizers are made from rubbing alcohol (link), made from alcohol that's either either "denatured" (link) -- i.e. intentionally made poisonous, or isopropyl (link) -- that's inherently poisonous, not from ethanol -- the kind that's mandatory safe to drink, and that b) even when the alcohol itself isn't poison lots of hand sanitizers also include other crap to make them thick or smell pretty or whatever that might be poisonous themselves.

Of course one important answer is legalizing marijuana so these teenagers don't have to do weird shiat to "escape reality." Which, as many Farkers realize, is a very natural human desire that will always be fulfilled somehow: e.g., the Quran forbade boozing so they switched to opium and hash, then when some mullahs forbade those they took to spinning around till they got very very dizzy (link). Indeed, one could argue that escaping reality is the whole point of civilization; e.g. some say that grain agriculture owes its entrenchment to the desire for lots of beer.

When you take away intoxicants there's nothing left to do but join weird religions that have nothing to do with reality, like the Hare Krishnas or the Southern Baptists.

Reality is for escaping: the worse we make reality the more fun escaping it is. And it must be impossible to improve reality very much or we'd make reality so good that there's less need to escape it, right?

In short, reality is for people who can't handle drugs.

Not sure about the mouthwash, but I have seen hand sanitizer that included Ethylene Glycol as one of the components.


That's antifreeze, the sweet poison that kills cats.

The obvious solution to this is to forbid selling hand sanitizers that are any more poisonous than grain alcohol itself. In fact, why not just put pumps on Everclear bottles and give kids a choice of what to do with it?

On a related note, I know of a few very small northern towns were you can't buy vanilla extract because of the high ethanol content.

Deathfrogg: I never could figure out what it was with alcoholics. When I was in High School I would be out in the woods at lunchtime getting baked with some guys and the drunkie kids would be out there with their bottles of vodak or whatever, and they'd be chugging the shiat like it was going out of style, mostly alone, while the stoners would be happy smoking a couple of doobs with six or seven other dudes and a couple of girls and going back in. I aced history class, chemistry class, drivers education and biology being pretty baked. I passed my drivers exam stoned and haven't had a moving violation in 27 years.

While the band geeks and the superjocks and the pretty popular people were staggering around the classroom and knocking shiat over, or in one case, mixing Acetic Acid and Acetaldehyde and then dumping it down the sink when the beaker got too hot to hold on to, I was following the instructions and getting the results the teacher was looking for.

But us pot-heads were the evil ones. The ones that couldn't be trusted. The ones that got suspended when we were caught.


Rest assured, in high school i smoked pot much more than I drank booze (and also took acid, 'shrooms, etc.) I fully support the Portugal model of decriminalization of all drugs. They've done it with great success.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: I've worked in retail (kitchen supply/gadget store) and we sold the cream chargers for the whipped cream dispensers (for heavy duty frosting of stuff). We had to see ID and enter it into the log before we could sell the little mini chargers. Most of the customers were little old ladies and a couple of regulars are chefs/bakers who legitimately used the things. But that rule is in place because someone somewhere decided to inhale the whipped cream charger gas.

/Personally, I just freebase pie
//Not the whipped cream, the whole pie


The nitrous oxide isn't too bad as long as it's used in moderation. But let me say this I don't know more than a handle of chefs anymore that actually use it to make whipped cream. I always see it done by hand or in a mixer. But a lot of them buy the cream charges anyway for personal use. The few places that still use the cream charges get half of them stolen by staff.

I had a friend in high school who came over in a panic one day. She confessed she'd huffed Raid several hours prior to coming over and said this gigantic black bee wouldn't leave her alone. She described the bee as three feet long and always in the corner of her line of vision. She kept swatting the air around her head and crying about the non-stop buzzing. "DON'T YOU SEE IT? IT'S HUGE!"

She ended up being okay, and learning a few lessons. Don't inhale Raid, and don't tell a friend who will remind you of your buzz-tastic stupidity on a daily basis.

Me too. I recently learned that teh children are huffing Axe body spray, and the thought of it almost made me hurl.

But at least now I know what's up if someone's face smells like stale Drakkar Noir.

pinktaco4lunch: SharkTrager: Lee Bruns: On the reservations near here the thing was to filter Lysol through a loaf of bread. I was never sure though if you drank what came out the other end of the bread, or ate the bread.

Half expected you to be in New Mexico (which is why the link doesn't surprise me).

I grew up on the edge of the Navajo reservation. The reservation is dry so the tribe members often came to town to get drunk. It was not at all uncommon for them to either bur or steal Listerine and hairspray and mix them together and get drunk.

Gallup or F-Town?


F-town.

That's weird to me because the tribes here own casinos and liquor/smoke shops.


The Navajo were late jumping on the casino bandwagon. Hell, they fought it. One band whose land wasn't contiguous to the rest of the reservation fought for separate recognition to try to cash in on the casino thing.

Yep. A few months ago I was at our local Dollar Tree. Two teenage boys were in front of me at the checkout counter and they had a half-dozen cans of the aerosol whipped cream. The clerk asked to see ID because they had to be adults to purchase the whipped cream. They weren't able to do so, but she cheerfully told them that she'd be glad to sell them as many tubs of whipped topping as they'd care to buy. They left the store in a huffy mood.

I never buy the whipped cream in a can, so that was the day that I learned that it uses nitrous oxide as a propellant.

Meh, back in the mid 90's ghetto weed would sometimes have raid or other shiat sprayed on it. It made the local news at one point. Apparently corner dealers would spray the raid on the shiattiest weed around so people would still get high. However quite a few ended up in the hospital.

Nah, I'm an east coast boy. This was just outside Philly from 1995-2000. Haven't heard much about it since then. I take it you guys had the same thing going on?
 
2012-04-08 10:30:44 PM  
This is why I make sure if the kids want booze, they get the same stuff I'm drinking. What I don't tell them is Black Strap Rum isn't meant to be mixed with Fruit Punch. They don't think alcohol is tasty

Here's a thought: maybe we should consider letting *all* adults buy liquor again. The 3-year waiting period that's been in effect since the 80s seems to be causing some serious problems.

I believe we should lower the drinking age to 18. IMHO, if you're deemed old enough to die for your country, you should be deemed old enough to purchase liquor.

The drinking age for near-beer was 17 (Ohio) when I went to college. It got you in the bars as a freshman. Suck it yoots!
