Sorry, Subby. THIS is a "Whippet":

dogbreedsinfo.org

It's a dog breed, similar to a smaller-scale Greyhound.

I'm pretty sure YOU'RE referring to "Whip-Its," which is a slang term for the act of concentrating and inhaling the propellant from aerosol whipped cream cans.

Sorry about your brain cells.

IF you bought the canisters of NO you discharged them into the balloon so they would be at lower pressure and easier to inhale. OR so I have heard anyway.

Subby's lucky he could get a balloon big enough to lift a whippet. When I was in school, we only had enough helium to lift a Jack Russel, and that fiesty little bastard did not want to be used for high altitude experimentation, let me tell you. He bit my buddy Dave, who had to get a tetanus shot.

Subby, lay off the paint fumes long enough to write a coherent headline. Nobody sucks a helium balloon for nitrous oxide ever. I do believe you are dumb enough to suck your dog trying to get high though.

Balloons have been used to do this for quite some time. Case in point: Roswell. It probably really was a balloon, just not a weather one. Detection of Soviet nuclear tests is tricky business.

Subby won't f*ck you.

Nobody does "whip hits" off balloons... or the process wouldn't have been named after sucking on a whip cream can. People do, however, suck helium out of balloons to make funny voices. While you can put nitrous in a balloon, most people are lazy and suck it straight out of a canister.

We used to buy these little plastic things called crackers. You used it to puncture the no cannister and fill the balloon. They were sold at head shops for 5 bucks or so..this was back in the late 90s. No clue if you can still get them.

1. "whip hits"? WTF? It's whip-its (see 23FPB23's post above).

2. www.erowid.org

Yeah, nobody does that. (BTW, that's sarcasm. Many people do it.)

3. Have you ever been to a concert or other gathering where someone was selling inflated balloons out of an RV or van for $5? Folks don't line up for helium at that price.

4. If you're sucking on whipped cream cans, I feel sorry for you. Do your drugs like a grown up.

Going from whipped cream to a tank is like going from picking ditch weed roaches out of an ashtray to kind bud in a vaporizer.

Nitrous oxide is not neurotoxic. However, depriving the brain of oxygen can lead to brain damage. This means that you should keep your Whip-ItsTM usage to 2 minutes or less (and then take a breath of regular air). TMYK.

Just curious, have you ever tried taking a hit directly from a metal nitrous canister? I'm gonna guess "no". If you mean straight out of a cracker, that's also not the usual method. The nitrous oxide escapes from the canister very quickly and also tends to lower the temperature of the air quite a bit. Frost on metal crackers is common, especially if you're using it multiple times in quick succession. I do not think you are speaking from experience or specialized knowledge here.

I see the problem. I wasn't actually referring to little charging canisters at all since I have never used one for anything. The term whip hits refers to taking hits of NO2 straight from the whip cream canister. You might have noticed that the whip cream canisters have plastic nozzles that do not conduct the cold. I hope the clarification satisfies you. "Whip hits" is more of a 70s-80s term. [Note: There was even a joke about that practice in "Better Off Dead"]

mcmnky: 1. "whip hits"? WTF? It's whip-its (see 23FPB23's post above).


Did you click my link? The origin is "whip hit". Like all language, it evolves over time. People originally turned the whip cream canisters so the nozzle was pointing up (so the cream stayed in the can) and inhaled the escaping gas. This is what people did before you could buy straight NO2 in little canisters. Since I was only talking about the whip cream cans in the first place, my usage is correct. I can see that the term might drift once whip cream canisters fell out of use, but that doesn't change the origin no matter how many Fark posts you think are worthy citations.

2. [photo]
Yeah, nobody does that. (BTW, that's sarcasm. Many people do it.)


I confess, I never saw one of those, and therefore concede that point.

mcmnky: 3. Have you ever been to a concert or other gathering where someone was selling inflated balloons out of an RV or van for $5? Folks don't line up for helium at that price.


I never saw that because the people I knew smoked weed so they'd be high for more than 10 minutes. I didn't pay attention to the stoner wannabes.

4. If you're sucking on whipped cream cans, I feel sorry for you. Do your drugs like a grown up.

Grown ups don't use NO2 to get high, they use real drugs. Dude, NO2 is a short high in the dentist office. Don't pretend it makes you all hardcore.

You didn't disprove anything I said about the origin of the term. They both exist. We're both right, mine is an older term. You've only proven that old people don't submit to Urban Dictionary often.

...and you can't admit that you are partially wrong.

Well, you have no proof of that last statement, since you've never seen me be wrong. The terms both exist, sure. But so does the word 'irregardless'. Do you really want to hang your argument on the mere fact of existence? I posted a 70s-era box of Whip-It brand chargers *and* an urban dictionary link with 6 separate confirmations of the term. You provided an urban dictionary link with one definition, which I assume you added yourself for the purpose of later citing it in an attempt to push your lame re-interpretation of reality because you just can't concede the possibility that you heard "Whip-it" as "whip hit" 40 years ago. You're like the morons who insist that Jimi really DID say "kiss this guy" and everyone else is just brainwashed, man.

untaken_name: You've proven my point entirely. I'm sorry you hang all of your self-esteem on internet arguments, and that make your life (and intellect very small). You go on and tell yourself I planted that term on Urban Dictionary in 2007 to win this debate.

Proving that I did not make up the term was all I needed. One of your 6 entries:

A stoopid drug that does cause brain damage and is highly addictive. Deprives the brain of much needed oxygen. Dont be fooled, this is the same drug, just in a much more potent form (the Docs are trained to administer the drugs with a nice mix of good ol' oxygen so u dont faint). Its just stoopid, and its not good with X, its even more potent, research it for real!

...is hardly up to academic standards. It also doesn't say anything about NO2 cartridges at all. You are a sad little man.
