Not new at all. Inhalant abuse has been around for years. "Dusting" itself has been around since at least 2005.

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.

Whipped cream in a can, not Miracle Whip. Still not new.

About a year ago I was at one of our local Dollar Tree stores when two teenage boys walked up to the checkout counter, each of them carrying a half-dozen cans (pressurized) whipped cream. The clerk asked to see ID showing they were adults, which they obviously couldn't. She then told them that they could buy as many tubs of whipped topping as they desired.

Can't remember the last time I saw such pissed off teens, plus I learned something new that day regarding the sale of whipped cream in a pressurized can. I knew it's used to get high, but I didn't realize that stores weren't allowed to sell it to minors.

Probably started in the 60s.

Very likely. Whomever wrote the article needs to catch up if they think "dusting" is a recent trend.

Huffing again? wait, I'm sorry, now it's "dusting". Off the top of my head here are some of things passed around in highschool. glue, butane, airbrush propellant, gasoline, nitrous, canned air (err, "computer dust cleaner"), stain, varnish, various other solvents.

Nitrous abuse goes back to the 1800's.

The article suggests propane. Substantially different.

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.

nothing in a pressurized container can grow, it is several 'atmospheres' of pressure, similar to what SCUBA divers have to learn before they go deep under water. Past 33 feet/33 feet below sea level produces 2 atmospheres of pressure. 66 feet = 3 atmospheres; 99 feet under water is 4x sea level atmospheric pressure.

another thing found in many Dusters is Iso-Butane, (bic lighter fluid) if not AC Refrigerant (R134a).
the duster the kid in the article was using must have been the cheaper ones that contain Iso-Butane or he dicided to step it up to the next level.

Fun Fact - propane gas has a 98% death rate in first time abusers. house filling due to leak is different due to being mixed with normal air compared to abusers who usually fill a balloon of it like they are doing a nos whippet.

And canned whipped cream can still be bought by minors (at least here in Indiana where i am it can) it was eitherstate law, store policy, or she told them that due to them having so many cans and it being obvious what they were going to do with it.

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.

Plant the pot in a wheelbarrow and just roll it to where the sun shines. Good times.
 
2012-11-14 06:08:38 AM
Also, this is not "new". And it's certainly not the latest "deadly trend". In fact, you could barely call it "in the recent past".

Companies that make air dusters put a freaking bitterant in their product some years ago to discourage this very thing.

So, welcome to 2000 or so, CBS news.

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.

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.

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"

'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...

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.


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."

my_cats_breath_smells_like_cat_food: 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.


Why, this sounds like the Reefer Madness.

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.

Probably before that since 1954 was when Reddi-whip started to be distributed nationally and since the 50's wasn't anything like Conservatives think the 50's where like, I'd say kids were doing whipping as early as the late 50's.

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.

Regardless, as previously mentioned, this is no new phenomenon. It was well known when I was in jr. high and high school in the '90s.

urban.derelict: nothing in a pressurized container can grow, it is several 'atmospheres' of pressure, similar to what SCUBA divers have to learn before they go deep under water. Past 33 feet/33 feet below sea level produces 2 atmospheres of pressure. 66 feet = 3 atmospheres; 99 feet under water is 4x sea level atmospheric pressure.


And, as we all know, there is no life whatsoever in the ocean depths.

Which is still safer than huffing duster which itself is neurotoxic (iirc), and is adulterated with various chemicals to make huffing it more dangerous. Whippits are by far safer (or less unsafe) than common inhalants

Whipped cream in a can, not Miracle Whip. Still not new.

About a year ago I was at one of our local Dollar Tree stores when two teenage boys walked up to the checkout counter, each of them carrying a half-dozen cans (pressurized) whipped cream. The clerk asked to see ID showing they were adults, which they obviously couldn't. She then told them that they could buy as many tubs of whipped topping as they desired.

Can't remember the last time I saw such pissed off teens, plus I learned something new that day regarding the sale of whipped cream in a pressurized can. I knew it's used to get high, but I didn't realize that stores weren't allowed to sell it to minors.


It's Nitrous Oxide, aka laughing gas in a can of whipped cream. Not some mystery substance, hell you can go into adult shops and buy it by the box in little BB gun C02 cartridge style packs. Completely fun and completely harmless for all of the 30 seconds your going to feel it.

I remember way back in the early 90s when kids would huff the canned air because there was "nitrous" in it. Hell you could look at the can and see in the ingredients there were none in there. What the idiots would do is tilt the can upside down shoot it into their lungs freezing them and pass out for a min or so. One dummy did this next to his kids pool and fell in and drowned. Jeez for weeks we had all the "propelants are harmful" and "its not nitrous" speeches.

Get people to stop huffing the shiat and it won't be inconvenient. They do the same thing to NyQuil as well. If we could just make education euphoric we'd solve our problem in the schools.
