I could have been doing this at work this whole time? and now I find out after I'm the boss.

Kerr Avon: RedPhoenix122: Old concept, let's drag it out for another scare tactic news cycle.

If they wanted scare tactics, "krokodil" would be a far better choice.


Or even Pharma Parties.

Dusting? Why, in MY day, we called it 'huffing,' and got high from spray paint, AND WE LIKED IT THAT WAY!

Except that you're not hitting Nitrous Oxide, as has been mentioned before in the thread, but inhaling either a Fluorocarbon or Hydrocarbon propellant as well as the solvent contained in the product, which can lead to really horrific long-term effects. Including sudden cardiac death.

The older, CFC Propellant Stuff was nasty. Chlorinated Fluorocarbons wreak havoc with your nervous and cardiac electrocardiography.

lordargent: The worst thing ever was when they put bitterant in canned air so that people wouldn't huff it.

I fixed computers on the side, I went through tons of that stuff, I was in a well ventilated room but every once in a while the air currents would shift around and I would get a whiff of bitterant, yuck.

// dIdn't original attempts at bitterant leave residue as well?

If you don't enjoy a good CSB, stop reading now.

So, when I was 16 my younger step brother (who was 15 at the time) liked to huff duster. One day he had 2-3 of his buddies over, and we were all sitting around the living room, and my step bro and one of his friends decide to both take a hit at the same time. So, in the course of their 30-60 second...uhhh, trip? I don't even know the right word...they both had laid down on the floor, and were sort of rolling around laughing. As they roll around they start to bump into each other, arms sort of flail about a little, and one of them sort of lands a glancing blow on the other one. Then, while both are still completely out of it, they atart to sort of drunkenly exchange blows.

This went on for 10-15 seconds maybe, and then my step bro starts to come around and he realizes his friend is hitting him...so he kind of loses it and starts to REALLY hit his friend back (while friend is still basically passed out). Friend then wakes up to my step-bro punching him repeatedly and then it is HIS turn to lose it and he starts to return shots. I should say that my step bro at the time was kind of a pudgy late-bloomer and his friend was a year older and significantly more physically fit.

Now, they are both on their knees sort of punching/wrestling with each other, nobody has said a word, it was a smooth transition from both of them being completely oblivious, to gradually finding themselves in a knock-down drag-out fight. My step brother quickly starts to find himself on the losing end of things after losing his initial advantage. He is not a stable guy, and he likes to hunt. He ran off suddenly in the middle of it, and comes back into the room WITH A LOADED 12 GUAGE POINTED AT HIS FRIEND. He chased his friend right out the front door and into his car.

They eventually made up and remained friends for years.

/Never did duster myself...the warning had the phrase "potentially fatal if inhaled" and it just seemed like there were so many better ways to catch a buzz.

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.


NO2? Laughing gas? Not the same thing. These kids are huffing solvents
 
2012-11-14 07:52:58 AM  
When I was a teen there was a local kid we called "Jelly Brain". He was an inhalant abuser. He prefered spray paint, but also would resort to gasoline or paint thinner. Last I heard of him he was suffering a lot of health problems and was, at that point a REAL Jelly Brain.

I once watched a guy huff from a can of PAM cooking spray using a paper towel roll. He stuffed a couple sheets of paper towel into the tube and then sprayed the can in one end while inhaling from the other. He proceeded to hit the floor and do the fish flop. When he got up he asked if I wanted to try it. "No thanks dude, knock yourself out"

Then you're asking the wrong questions.
 
2012-11-14 08:02:57 AM  
So apparently the kids lost a bunch of weight. So my question to you is, is this the latest news cycle scare tactic, or will it be on Dr. Oz to help house wives get less fat?
 
2012-11-14 08:03:55 AM  

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.


'Propellant' is nitrous oxide... also known as laughing gas.. if you keep the can upright, the nitrous comes out, not the whipped cream.. end result is someone with a buzz and someone with a unuseable can of whipped cream...

Can we have a rule where you can only talk about drugs you have abused yourself? It would clear up a lot of the misinformed bullshiat around here.

That is completely different from computer duster, which is more akin to huffing glue or spraypaint. Nitrous oxide is a hell of a lot safer.

Excellent point. No MDPV, crack, meth, or excessive doses of PCP. Anything else you should have the sack to try out.

I recall discovering the NO2 buzz when I was a kid, probably 1972-ish. It wasn't trying to get high, just attempting to eat the "whipped topping" right out of the can and didn't turn it upside down per the instructions. Surprise for me. It wasn't so groovy that I wanted to do it all the time, though. And I don't recall it lasting but a few seconds.

I had a friend back in the nineties who did a lot of this sort of thing. And I mean a lot.

He even named his band "Dust Off."

1) Invent new slang term to refer to decades-old, illicit and long-known dangerous activity (likely to cover it up in conversation- seriously, no one's going to think it's strange that all of a sudden a lot of third graders have taken up an avid interest in cleaning their houses).

2) Completely confuse a mass-media on a slow news day desperate for a story of some sort.

3) ???

4) Profit?

Back a while ago we were going to upgrade systems, figured while we had'em open we'd clean them out, too. They were ready to buy a case fo these spray cans, I pointed out that the little, portable (~.5 hp) vacuum cleaner cost less and would still be usable for (hopefully) years to come. Oddly enough, logic prevailed.
