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

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.

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?

there's bittorrent in my computer duster?? well i'll be damned

th0th: Plant Rights Activist: You already have to be 18+ to buy the damn compressed air. How much more inconvenient can you make computer maintenance?

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.

Jon iz teh kewl: Matrix Flavored Wasabi: 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.

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.

no it's not. Nitrous oxide violates your B12 system
and depletes your reserves

so u have to eat gobs and gobs of marmite

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

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.

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.

Looking forward to the story on Kids on Quaaludes in February.

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.
