Bathia_Mapes: least 2005.
dramboxf: Bathia_Mapes: least 2005.LOL. Try 1984. A family member was known for doing what was called "whippits" back then. The propellent used for Miracle Whip in a can.
Bathia_Mapes: Whipped cream in a can, not Miracle Whip. Still not new.
dramboxf: Bathia_Mapes: Whipped cream in a can, not Miracle Whip. Still not new.Yeah, you're right. My point was that it was being done at least as early as 1984 by white suburban kids.Probably started in the 60s.
Dafodude: dramboxf: Bathia_Mapes: least 2005.LOL. Try 1984. A family member was known for doing what was called "whippits" back then. The propellent used for Miracle Whip in a can.Whip-its are nitrous oxide. Laughing gas. It's also used as an anesthetic in dentistry. It's also used as a propellant in just about every food product that shoots out of a can, including whipped cream and even those mini-kegs of Heinieken. This is because it isn't toxic to humans but won't permit bacterial growth in the container.Computer cleaner is usually di- or tetrafluoroethane (also known as R134a - the same stuff in your car's AC system.) This stuff is bad news to inhale and difluoroethane can also be highly flammable.They're two completely different things.

RedPhoenix122: Old concept, let's drag it out for another scare tactic news cycle.
TheJoe03: PCP aka angel dust.

AverageAmericanGuy: If you turn the can upside down, this gets way cooler.
Bathia_Mapes: Not new at all. Inhalant abuse has been around for years. "Dusting" itself has been around since at least 2005.
I was messing around with that back in like 1991.
Everything old is new again.
Looking forward to the story on Kids on Quaaludes in February.
doglover: NO2 baby.Whippets. Whippets good.
FenixStorm1: Dusting was on an episode of intervention...was pretty funny if I'm honest:
RDixon: Are the kids stealing tide detergent to get the money to buy the dusting drugs?News; it isn't what it used to be.
doglover: Whippets. Whippets good.
