LesserEvil: They are both carriers of synthetic compounds, created by some coffee house in the Netherlands back in 2004.


This may sound kind of fishy, but I totally get this. Back in the day, when I was a Barista at a Joe Muggs coffee shop, I'd have to spend all day listening to pretentions pseudo-yuppies who were too stupid to get their 'decaf soy milk chai latte' from an actual coffee shop and instead wandered into a Starbucks knockoff in a shiatty book store, not even Barnes and Noble for god's sake, and nine times out of ten they couldn't even tell when I'd give up listening to their idiotic requests for custom shiatty overpriced coffee drinks that I wouldn't even bother to learn how to make and instead just mixed some random shiat up in a cup and gave it to them. A couple more months of that and I'd have resorted to running random cleaning chemical cocktails through the espresso maker and topping them off with foamy steamed expired non-dairy creamer with a swirl of pumpkin pie spice. God knows I could have ended up whipping up a batch of mind-altering substances that would made people eat each other's faces off right there in the shiatty paperback romance aisle, blood-spattered harlequin bodice-rippers flying left and right amid the terrified screams of faux hipsters, and by God would that have been the highlight of that whole shiatty job.

So yeah, I can totally see that happening.

WTF is wrong with these people who use bath salts?

He's wanted just for questioning apparently. Of course, when he was first raided for having a drug lab, he denied it and claimed the government of Belize was trying to squeeze him for money. Now we know he's been playing heavily with bath salts... and honestly, the leap to murder isn't that hard to imagine.

I recently talked to a former spice/bath salts user who said it was the one thing he'd consider killing to get (thankfully, he's stepped away from it, and it's also no longer for sale here in this state).

The psychosis induced by these synthetics is way worse then the psychosis "natural" psychotics experience. It's not treatable, for starters. McAfee is toast. Once he leaped off that cliff, he was done. Spending your millions to play mad scientist with bath salts?? That's so far off the deep end, I'd have a hard time believing he wasn't guilty of killing this guy.

LavenderWolf: AverageAmericanGuy: I use a Mac, so I don't have to worry about virii or getting murdered by antivirus pioneers.

A) It's "viruses"

B) There are viruses on macs, in the wild.


Drop the DB "Macs don't get viruses. Yes, they do, yes they can, and yes they will.

And not only the people that will hit every "install now" prompt. It is possible on the current OS to bypass the admin password and install malware without user interaction via Java scripting.

It will happen more and if the 100,000 Mac botnet that was only discovered because one guy decided to run an Antivirus program on his Mac, then there will be more. The other 99,999 most likely never had one installed because they were lulled into the false pretense that Macs don't get viruses/malware by Apple's own marketing.

While you may be "smart enough" to not hit Yes on every screen that pops up, there are 100,000 others who aren't. Those are the people that worry me. At least the Windows people know a scanner is necessary to protect themselves and others while the head-in-the-sand Mac people just think that Apple would never lead them astray and act morally superior while not having a clue about what they're talking about.

It's like having sex with woman and not wearing a condom because she says she's had her tubes tied so there's no way she can get pregnant.

What a marvelous idea. McAfee release a shiat antivirus, so I should immediately buy a new computer that I don't particularly like, throw out 17 years of accumulated software and exchange the various technical matters I have solved and learned to understand over that 17 year period for entirely new ones. Or spend ten minutes researching the best free antivirus and carry on as before.

LesserEvil: bwilson27: You're an idiot.

Well, that was a well thought, reasoned response... for a psychotic synthetics user, I guess.

Just one brief period of study seems to indicate the link between psychosis and synthetic cannabinoids

There are also plenty of posts from former users about seizures, inability to reason, complete lack of 'normal' inhibitions, and violent behavior. Of course, these are FORMER users. The people I know that used this stuff wouldn't have admitted anything of the sort, and now are shocked by their own behavior (what they remember of it).

Of course, there will always be morons who think it's perfectly harmless.
